Disney Vacation 2011 – Day 13 – January 15, 2011

 

Today we got up and had breakfast in Triton’s and headed off the ship. We almost missed our flight and got the last 5 seats on the plane. It was stressful to say the least. I have No pictures from today!

Once we got home we all crashed!

It was a great vacation and made me sure that a week was the way to go!

2011 Disney Trip – Day 12

Day 12 – January 14, 2011 – Castaway Cay

Today is our last day of the cruise!!! Sooo sad, it’s almost over! Today was the day we were heading to Castaway Cay.

A little over two years before this day we were here…..

Everytime I visit Castaway Cay I replay my wedding day in my head. Best day of my life!!!

We had breakfast and then we were ready to head to the beach! Sadly it was very cool and very over cast. 

We made the best of it. On our way to the gangway we ran into these guys!

Posted Image 

Once we got off the ship we saw a beautiful bride. Ahhh what I wouldn’t give to relive this day!

Posted Image 

We also ran into this guy. I love when we see Captain Jack. He is always so funny. Disney does a great job casting.

Posted Image 

You can see in this picture the overcast. One of the risks of cruising in a low crowd, low cost season!

Posted Image 

We only had a few minutes to wait for a tram to head to the family beach.

We boarded the tram and I tried to get the kids to pose for a few pictures. LOL

We were heading to our seats, near the slides and saw this. 
Posted Image

I love the aisle. Look at this….Ahhhh…memories…. 
Posted Image 

Ok OK…Back to the trip report.

We set up our stuff in a good location. It was way to chilly to go swimming. Alyssa did not even have an interest in it. So we hung out, listened to music, read a bit and played.

Posted Image

We got lunch from Cookies Too….It was good as always.

We headed over to take a picture in the spot we said “I DO”

Posted Image 
Posted Image 

Ok, I slipped another one in. I can’t help it. This is what I do the whole time I am on the island.

Posted Image

My sister recreated my walk down the aisle.

Posted Image

Austin didn’t want to take part in the reenactment. 

Posted Image

Posted Image

My sister decided the kids needed a nap. So Pete and I headed to the Adult Only beach when the rest of the family went back tot he ship.

I laid on the hammock a while, but the skies were getting darker and darker.

Posted Image 

We were the only people on the beach. It was dark and chilly!

Posted Image

We hopped a tram back to the ship. Two last pictures before we got back onboard for our last night.

Posted Image
Posted Image

We got back on the ship and got ready for our last night. My sister and family attended the show. Pete and I did not. 

Alyssa spent lots of time in our room. We loved having the little visitor.

Posted Image

Before dinner these two were out posing for pictures.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Dinner was casual tonight. Thank goodness since we had packed up almost everything to put outside our room.

Posted Image

Posted Image

Orange Roughy, best meal I had all week in the regular dining rooms (not including Palo)

Posted Image

Posted Image

The farewell is always so much fun. We rushed around to get final character pictures before I got a good spot in the balcony to get the group picture!!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

My first visit with Princess Tianna. I love her!

Posted Image

Group Picture!!!

Posted Image

Alyssa collected lots of Mickey Confetti. 

Posted Image

We were greeted with these little guys. What a nice surprise for our last night.

Posted Image

We had a visitor before bed.

Posted Image

She came bearing gifts…

Posted Image

We ordered room service for the last time. I had cruises all week without a Mickey Bar. I wanted one before I got off the ship.

Posted Image
Posted Image

We headed to bed. Tomorrow was the day we were heading home.

2011 Disney Vacation – Day 11

January 13, 2011 ~ Day 11

We started today off with a little princess Meet and Greet!!!

We walked around the ship for a while and then Pete and I settled into some chairs waiting for our Tea Party with Alice. We were lucky. We had the sweetest princess going with us.

The Tea Party was fun even if we did have bad seats. This tea party started a love of Alice for Miss Alyssa. 

Today was pretty low key. It was nice, they had a Matinee showing of Disney Dreams. We didn’t make it to that show, but were ready at 6:00pm for your show.

After the show, Pete and I ran back to our room to get dressed for dinner.

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

Dinner was stressful. Poor Alyssa was over tired, Brandon was sick and Laura was handling it all by herself. After a threat of going to Bed Alyssa was in much better spirits.

Posted Image
Posted Image

Austin was in a great mood during dinner!

Posted Image
Posted Image

After dinner Pete and I took a stroll on Deck 4. My favorite place for quiet!

Posted Image

We ended the day with a movie. I can not remember which one. 

Posted Image

We headed to bed, a big was up for tomorrow…Castaway Cay!
