Okay I have to get this trip report done because I have another trip report for a year ago in February and I will be going to Disneyland again in November so I have a lot to do! My computer wasn’t working for a while so I did have to go on hiatus for that and this year has just been a really rough year for me and my brother. I don’t want to get into it here because I’ve talked about it already on my other blog so you can catch up over there…
This blog I want to be about happy times so onto the rest of our first day on board the Disney Dream!
So after a big of a rest, my aunt and I went to go see the live action Cinderella movie while our cousins rested. Georgette was feeling under the weather from her COPD and the humidity in the air so she wasn’t up to a movie.
We took a quick walk outside to see the ocean on our way to the theatre.
It was big commercial sized theatre and you can purchase popcorn, candy, etc but we decided not too since it wasn’t really worth it.
We loved the Frozen short they played before the movie. I saw the movie before with my mother so I already knew I liked the movie but my aunt really wanted to see it as Cinderella was her favorite princess growing up.
After the movie, we went to use the restroom nearby and I loved the Mickey Mouse mirrors!
We went back to our room to get dressed and grab our cousins and saw that turn down service had already happened and our person made a crab for us out of the blanket on our bed. You get a “Navigator” which was a schedule of the activities happening for the following day.
We walked by the nursery on our way to dinner which is so adorably themed to It’s a Small World.
Some of the prints on the wall are animated including this one which looked like a ship during a storm. I should have gotten video of one of the paintings.
Can you spot Mickey? This is part of the outside cover of the main elevators on the ship.
The main elevators also have cool Mickey hands pointing to what level the elevators are on.
The germaphobe in me loves that they hand wet wipes to EVERYONE who goes into the restaurants to avoid people getting sick which is apparently a common thing on cruise lines… Our first night’s for our rotational dinner was at the Enchanted Garden and unfortunately Georgette just wasn’t feeling up to joining us for dinner and decided to get some rest.
The “windows” would show daylight or night time depending on the time of day. Also, pretty cool Mickey fountain!
The flower lights opened and closed depending on the time of day as well.
We loved our servers. They were just the nicest and they really get to know you and your preferences especially if you have any allergies. They were very sad that Georgette wasn’t able to make it that night either. They seemed very concerned that she wasn’t feeling well. She was definitely missed at dinner.
The bread selection was country currant bread with chickpea-garlic puree which was very delicious. Interesting pairing but it worked. If they didn’t have butter already on the table, they would give it to you if you asked but I’m pretty sure that was on the table as well.
For my appetizer I chose the Applewood Smoked Bacon Wild Mushroom Tart with Creamy Leeks. It was delicious and quite rich for an appetizer but that didn’t stop me!
For my entrée, I chose the Slow Roasted Prime Rib and I NEVER get prime rib but it sounded really good to me that night and holy cow was it! It came with roasted vegetables and a stuffed potato. I got the end piece too which is supposed to be a good piece to get.
Each restaurant has a selection of desserts and each night they have a choice called Sweet Temptations which gives you three of their desserts in mini form which I what I decided to get as those looked interesting to me. They included a Sacher Torte which I believe was the one on the right, a no sugar added strawberry cheesecake, and a Esterhazy cake… They were delicious but I could have passed on the cheesecake. It’s not my favorite thing in the world.
We were all stuffed after dessert and decided to end the night and head back up to our rooms for more adventures the next day.
This ship is just one of the most magical places I have ever seen and I think I might be ruined for other cruise lines in the future. I may have to save up for Disney if I ever want to go on another…
The lobby is just so stunning.
Okay that marks the end of day six of our Disney trip and the first night of our Disney Cruise and I’m only over 2 years late… If you want to see what’s been going on in my life, check out the link at the top of the page and you can catch up on my regular blog.
