Disney Dream- Wednesday- Day Three

December 12, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

On Wednesday we arrived at Castaway Cay.  This is without a doubt our favorite part of a Disney cruise.  We also couldn't think of a better place to spend our 20th wedding anniversary.  Happy anniversary to us!

We ate breakfast in Cabana's.  We had the usual from there; scrambled eggs, hash browns, bacon, etc.  I added Mickey waffles to mine and Bryan had fresh pineapple.  

The first thing we saw when we stepped off the ship was this amazing Christmas tree. And it started to rain immediately.

We had pictures done even though it was raining.  My poor hair.

Fortunately the rain stopped after about 15 minutes and we headed over to Serenity Bay.  The weather turned out gorgeous.  Although at first we thought the water was cold we quickly got use to it and spent the whole morning in the water talking to two Canadian couples that we met.  

We had lunch at Cookies 2.  I had a hotdog and Bryan had a burger and a hotdog.  We ate lunch with one of the Canadian couples and their 20 year old son.  Such nice people.

Our initial excursion was suppose to be bikes, stingrays, and floats.  However the day before they changed our stingray time and we didn't like the time.  So we changed everything to just bikes.  We did this back in 2015 but I had not taken my camera onto the island.  So this time I did.  There is a lookout tower that gives you a view of the ship and the island.  

The bike trails are so pretty and scenic.

We stayed on the island until the last minute.  We had to be back on the ship at 1630.  When we got back we changed into our anniversary shirts that I had made for us.  We had pictures taken in them and several people congratulated us.  It was a lot of fun!

Dinner tonight was at Palo.  I reserved us dinner here for our anniversary.  We always enjoy the atmosphere and the food.  We ordered wine, a delicious Italian Muscato then they brought out our antipasto of meats and breads.  Bryan ordered the bean soup which was different from last time.  It was a broth bean soup instead of a creamy bean soup.  He didn't care for it.  I ordered the tomato mozzarella caprese with aged balsamic vinegar.  For our entrees Bryan ordered sea scallops and I ordered the filet mignon.  Delicious!  For dessert we got the infamous Chocolate souffle.  That is our favorite dessert ever.  So good!

With our dessert they brought out this decorated plate.  So pretty!

It was a really awesome evening with my sweet husband.

We missed pirates night but we had seen it so many times we didn't mind.  After dinner we caught the 2245 showing of Thor: Ragnarok.  The theater was packed.  This was one thing that really disappointed us on the cruise.  I know it was the Very Merrytime Cruise and the ship was so busy.  There have been times in the past that no one was in those theaters.  I was also shocked at the small kids in these late night showings.  I realize its vacation but still.  Anyhoo, I digress.  The movie was not like any Thor movie we have ever seen.  I think we liked it but I am not sure.  It was more along the lines of a comedy than a typical marvel movie.  It reminded us a lot of Guardians of the Galaxy.

After the movie it was really late so we called it a night.
