Disney Dream- Monday-Day One

December 10, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Our much anticipated cruise on the Disney Dream had finally arrived!  This was our 4th Disney cruise and definitely not our last!  Our check in was at 1330 so we left the house around noon.  We were so excited to arrive at Port Canaveral.  We unloaded our luggage then parked the car.

Of course the ship was decorated for Christmas and when we arrived none of the lights were on yet.  The lighting ceremony was later.  It was still so pretty!

Each ship builds and decorates a gingerbread house.  There is also a competition amongst the ships.

We ate lunch at Enchanted Garden.  Bryan and I both got the prime rib, twice mashed potatoes, and green beans.  For dessert we both got the butterscotch sundaes.  It was delicious!

Before the Sailing Away party and Muster station drill I snuck a piece of pizza from Flo V8.  Oh how I had missed that pizza!

Once our luggage arrived to our stateroom I decorated our door.  Adding our new anniversary magnet.  This is one of my favorite things to do.

Our muster station drill was a 1600 and although this is a crowded madness drill I know how necessary it is.  Call me crazy but I take a moment to remember those that died on the Titanic.  Without them we would not have the safety that we have now on these ships.  

Then it was time for Sailing Away party.  Bryan didn't want to see it.  He wanted to head up front and watch the ship leave port.  Even though I have seen this show three times I still love it.  My favorite part is the countdown to the ships horn.  Unfortunately the deck was so crowded and I didn't get as good of a view as I have had in the past.

I joined Bryan after the show.  The sun was just going down so the views of Cocoa Beach were so pretty!

We got dressed for dinner and headed to the show Golden Mickey's.  This was our first time seeing it and it was really good.  After the show it was picture time. Bryan just did not want to dress up every night this time.  Disney slacked up on their dinner attire requirements so I was okay with.  In the next coming years I may slack up some as well.  I just really enjoy wearing my dresses and this is really the only time I get to.

At 1930 was the tree lighting ceremony.  They turned all of the Christmas lights on and it was beautiful!  

Then it was more pictures.

Dinner tonight was at Animator's Palate.  We sat with 2 other couples.  One couple from Texas (who we never saw again) and Mary and Steve from Maryland.  They were very nice people.  We thought the Crush show this time was a little cheesy.  The "actor" wasn't as good as the last time.  So we pretty much ignored it.

As for the food, we both ordered Black Truffle Pasta Purseittes.  I got the Baked Potato and Cheddar Cheese soup.  Bryan got the Creamy Butternut Squash soup. For our entrees I got the Ginger-Teriyaki Dusted Angus Beef Tenderloin and Bryan got the Herb Crusted Pork Chop.  For dessert I got the Chocolate Fudge Cheesecake and Bryan got the Cookies and Cream Sundae.  Our meal was fabulous!

After dinner we caught the 2215 showing of Coco in the theater.  Oh my goodness it was fabulous!  This is now one of my favorite Disney movies.

After the movie we took advantage of the atrium being empty so we took pictures of all of the christmas decorations.  Then we called it a night!
