Would you recommend it?

While it's not my favorite, I recommend any book that has to do with Walt :love:

My current favorite is, "How to be Like Walt,' by Pat Williams. There's a lot of Disney history in it, which NEVER gets old to me, followed by life lessons and how we can apply that to our own lives.

OMG I had just lost about 14 lbs before this!!!
That's awesome! What were you doing to lose weight?

I was down 10 and have already put back on three :sad1:

I was doing WW and for the past two months when I see the charge on my credit card, I think, "wow, I really have to cancel that since I haven't logged in for two months."




Um, yeah.
I will not be snorkeling. In the near future or EVER
I didn't think so since you won't get your hair wet! :rotfl:


So funny because I don't LOVE fruit but I do enjoy fruit salad but detest cutting it all up; that's Steve's job :P
Oh, I wish I had a Steve to cut up my fruit! :laughing:

    ROYAL COURT



    Okay, before I start on our last night…I found one lonely picture from my snorkeling in Castaway Cay...

    495765

    It's definitely a Go Pro screen shot so I know the actual video footage exists, or existed, at some point. I guess I'm thankful to have something to show for all that!

    Anyway, this was our night and it was fancy dinner night at Royal Court,
    495766

    Where they serve fancy food...

    495767

    495768

    and have fancy napkins.
    This one is for @pkondz because he likes fancy napkins ::yes::
    495769

    Of course, y'all know I'm not fancy :rotfl:

    I got the Fettuccine with Parmesan Crusted Chicken...
    495770

    My mom must've looked less than thrilled with the menu tonight
    and they offered to get her the "usual" Chicken Parmesean...
    495771
    which was MUCH better than mine.

    Allie got the steak, of course...
    495772

    Nicholas was the only one of us brave enough to try the lobster.
    495774

    I know, I know…I have never tried lobster,
    but I don't really like seafood with the exception of shrimp cocktail and deep fried scallops,
    and even those I would only eat a couple times a year.

    Our dinners were unmemorable, especially all these months later :confused3
    But I do remember loving this...
    495775

    Chocolate Lava Cake 😋
    I mean, who wouldn't love that??
    Allie got the same thing as me and Nicholas and my mom both got
    the old-fashioned apple pie
    but I'm out of picture space so you'll just have to imagine what that looks like 🥧

    Overall, a nice relaxing night in the MDR.

    The kids ran off after dinner and my mom and I were planning to go to the last show.
    But before we did that, I wanted to take some photos of our last sunset on the cruise :sad1:

    That's next!

    He looks so lonely down there!

    Perhaps... thankful just to be alive, after that?

    :rolleyes1
    Where they serve fancy food...
    Ooh, la la!
    This one is for @pkondz because he likes fancy napkins ::yes::
    :lmao:
    Thanks!! :laughing:

    That's... certainly an interesting presentation.
    My mom must've looked less than thrilled with the menu tonight
    and they offered to get her the "usual" Chicken Parmesean...
    That actually looks good, but... too bad she couldn't find anything on the "fancy" menu.
    which was MUCH better than mine.
    Actually not surprised by that.
    Allie got the steak, of course...
    Boring presentation. Really not impressed.
    know, I know…I have never tried lobster,
    but I don't really like seafood with the exception of shrimp cocktail and deep fried scallops,

    Then it's probably not for you. But... you should try just a taste... with melted butter, of course! (only way to eat lobster.)

    I'd probably do that too. mmmmm.... pie.

    SUNSET


    The sunset was absolutely gorgeous.
    My photos won't come close to doing it justice, but I'll share them anyway...

    495777

    495779

    I was so in love with the sunset that I did something
    no person over a certain age should do…I tried taking some selfies :rotfl:
    495781

    After taking about 500 pictures, I finally got one that wasn't completely awful,
    and is still my Facebook profile pic to this day...
    495783

    It was pretty empty up on deck and I was feeling melancholy
    about this being our last night on the cruise, so I started taking a million pictures...
    495784

    495785

    495786

    495787

    495789

    495791

    GOOD-BYE FANTASY PHOTO SHOOT


    My photo shoot continues...
    495796

    495797

    495802


    495798

    495799

    495800

    495801

    495803

    Having satisfied my picture taking itch,
    I went and met my mom for the last show in the Walt Disney Theater...
    495804

    495805

    The best part was that right after the show,
    all the characters headed out to the atrium for a meet and greet.
    So that's where my mom and I headed next!

    I remember being SUPER excited to eat at Royal Court in December...and feeling sort of meh about it afterward, too. I really think it had a lot to do with our table being crammed in the back, so we couldn't even enjoy the ambiance of the place. It really is beautiful.

    Love your selfie taking skills! You and @ariane37 always make me smile when you post them!! :hug:

    After we got home, and I actually had the time on my hands during this quarantine to print and scrapbook my pictures from December, I wished I had spent some time actually walking around and taking pictures like you did on that night!! Guess I'll just have to go back :)

    Wonderful pictures around the ship on your last night.
    My goal is to do a Disney Cruise one of these years!
    Your selfie came very nice!
    I’m the same way with selfies. I only do them on Snapchat and add the filters, haha 😂

    Yes, true!


    That's... certainly an interesting presentation.
    I wasn't impressed by a lot of the food in the MDRs. I'm glad that after four cruises, I finally figured out what works best for us…skipping some of them and either getting room service or Cabanas. But next time I'll add in PALO dinner too just for another option away from the MDR.


    Then it's probably not for you. But... you should try just a taste... with melted butter, of course! (only way to eat lobster.)
    I thought about it, but then the feeling passed…I just wasn't in the mood.

    Ha! Thanks!


    Thanks for all the photos, but this one I found really interesting.
    I have a bunch more of these that I didn't post. They have them for all the Disney Parks around the world :love:

    That's kind of how I felt about all the MDRs, especially when we're talking about the food. The best night was the show at Animator's Palate.

    Love your selfie taking skills! You and @ariane37 always make me smile when you post them!! :hug:
    :crazy2: :rotfl2:

    That's part of the luxury of being on a 7-night cruise…you have a lot more time to relax and not feel like you need to go, go, go.

    So you're saying you're moody.

    That's awesome! What were you doing to lose weight?
    Nutrisystem and it really worked, plus the majority of the food is not bad at all! But it is expensive.............and since the quarantine got me down and eating fun things to feel better (and possibly drinking more) I stopped my monthly order; it's just too expensive really. I don't think I've put on anything but haven't weighed myself in about 10 days lol; trying real hard to walk as often as possible at least!

    I got the Fettuccine with Parmesan Crusted Chicken...
    That looks good!
    Then I saw it was not.

    You know, the food on DCL is supposed to be phenomenal. Between NCL, RCCL, and Disney I thought the worst was RCCL and honestly the best NCL!

    Not gonna like that looks supper creepy. Its like an old beat up mickey willing you to pull him from the ocean.

    Of course, y'all know I'm not fancy :rotfl:
    And this is why we ❤

    I know, I know…I have never tried lobster,
    but I don't really like seafood with the exception of shrimp cocktail and deep fried scallops,

    Blasphemy!!!!! I could live on nothing but seafood if that was an option. Funny story when I was pregnant the very first thing that gave me "morning sickness" was lobster. We were at the beach and had lobsters straight from the ocean but the smell got to me and I couldn't even look at them or enter the house for hours afterwards. It was a few years before I could eat it again but thankfully I'm long passed that. And if I can get over that you can certainly try it :earboy2:

    Gorgeous!!!!!!!!

    And my mom and I split a plate of fruit…I told you I was hungry! 😁

    View attachment 493387

    Nothing beats the fruit they serve on DCL.
    I don't know what it is, but it's always just so perfect and fresh.
    I love fruit but I hate having to cut it up and I'm too cheap…and too fussy…to buy pre-cut fruit.
    I think that's why I love this so much…it's all done for me ::yes::



    Going on a Disney Cruise has to be the MOST expensive way to get your fill of fresh fruit!
