Disney Fantasy- Day 5


    Day 5- 5/2/12
    Cozumel


    We all met and had Breakfast at the Enchanted Garden Buffet at 9:30.

    After  breakfast, we continued to work on some quick Music Video shooting and fun with the Royal Castaways.


       
    We also saw the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique set up for pirates night!  Very cool



 



                                 
        
                                 

    It was then time for Kara's favorite movie - Tangled 3D- in the Buena Vista Theater.   All attended and for many of the group it was a first time to see Tangled and they loved it!  :)

    It was then Lunch in Cabanas.   The primary goal was to get shrimp for our video shoot for a shrimp peeling video. We learned that Arlene has a fool proof method to eat shrimp without ever touching them to peel.

    Aqualab and pool time on deck 12 forward for Rachel and Kara.   David took pictures and video.



    Roberta, Larry and Jeannie were with us and took pics and relaxed in loungers.



    Afterwards, we stopped for Ice cream at frozone after sun and fun!

    Arl and Wil saw their second movie of day-  War Horse.
    Paul- only he knows what he did and he isn't sharing. LOL...

    The Gang then relaxed in their rooms for an hour...



    We went to the Minkins room to film two videos for the behind scenes section of our DVD.
    • Anyone can cook series-  how to peel shrimp
    • How to place on a tattoo for pirate night





    Roberta & Larry, Arl and Wil & Paul saw Disneynature chimpanzee  movie in the Walt Disney Theater and enjoyed it.

    Rachel, Kara, David and Jeannie saw characters:
    • Pirate Stitch
    • Pirate Mickey
    • Pirate Goofy
    • Pirate Donald



    We then headed to Studio D to see the Pirate game show.   We had a fun time.  It was interactive and high energy.   Kara seemed to enjoy!






     Then we went up to Deck 11 pool stage to see the Pirates In The Carinbean character stage show.  It was very good and Kara had a great time.








    We had Pirate night dinner in Animators Palate.   It is a great place for Pirate night dinner because they show the sketches and paintings from the Disney Parks rides and Disney movies that deal with pirates!  
    David had pineapple, honeydew and watermelon cold soup (which is outrageous) and beef w Dijon crust.   
    Rachel had caesar salad, the short ribs (which Wil declared the best he has ever had)
    Kara had kids pizza.




                                                       









    After dinner, it was time for the Pirates Fireworks, Buccaneer Blast, which are always great.







    Kara fell asleep literally two seconds after fireworks ended.  She waited to see them end.



    She then joined Grandma and Grandpa in their cabin to sleep so Rachel and David could go on the Aquaduck at night.  It was very cool and the first pirate movie was on at the time!


    Then it was off to sleep...

Mariner of the Seas Live Blog: Day 1- Embarcation

We woke up about 7:30.  Got ready and headed to the free breakfast.  It was good and enough to fill us up. The usual continental breakfast with some hot items as well.  Like eggs and such. We all got the bags together after 9 and packed up the car.  We were on the road by 9:30. Coming from the west side of the airport we hit some morning traffic. Nothing awful, it kept moving, but it was just under 30 minutes.  We saw first sighting of our home for the next week at 9:55! Still very early. We unloaded the car, parked it and got into the terminal. Check in was very easy and we went to the emerald area to sit. It was not a long wait at all. We were boarding the ship at 11am. Took the welcome aboard picture and headed on to the ship. First thing we needed to do was to head the shore excursion desk. We had read that if you booked a bungalow on Coco Cay, as we did, you could head there upon arrival and pick your bungalow. We pre-ordered a bungalow.  These are done through the cruise

Coronado Springs Resort Refurbished Room 2018

We got to stay in a refurbished room at the Coronado Springs Resort in late July 2018. The area we were in is known as Casitas 2.   Casitas 2 is closer to the main building, as preferred, but starting to get a little further away.  Not as far as the other areas. From what I can tell these areas were the first to be refurbished as the resort is still going through the existing room refurbishment. The entire resort is getting its own extreme makeover. Besides the guest rooms, the common areas and restaurants are getting a new look as well as the pool area later this year.  In addition they are  building a brand new 15 story tower with new rooms as well.  The theme is the southwest.  They are toning down the heavy theme and making the rooms more upscale for the heavy convention clientele as this has one of the largest convention areas on property. In our eyes they did a great job! Very updated, modern but a hint of theme and not over the top. The use of granite topped furnit

Mariner of the Seas Live Blog: Day 2- Coco Cay

The Mariner of the Seas arrived at Coco Cay at 7 am today. We all knew this would be  hard to do, so we aimed to be on the tender at 8:30 am.  As mentioned, we had a bungalow reserved, so there was no need to rush. We headed down to the gangway and got right on the tender. Waited for some people to fill it up and then headed over. Nice and sunny outside. When we arrived at the island of Coco Cay the skies opened up to a rain shower. Oh no!  We waited less than 5 minutes for it to pass and headed for the private tram to the South Beach Bungalows and beds. Upon arrival, we all got our VIP wristbands and headed to our bungalow! It was an open air covered area with a couch, 2 loungers, 2 mats, water, and beverage service if needed for the usual fees. We all settled in fast and some of us went to explore and walk on the beach while others got right down to relaxing! We met an Iguana .... and then encountered two more 5 min rain showers.  They were actua
