Saturday morning we woke up in Castaway Cay, Disney's private island.
We had breakfast in the Enchanted Garden dining room, we had come to realize that was easier than doing the buffet with 3 small kids in tow.
Then we headed to the island where we spent the morning at the beach. It was so quiet when we first got there so we were happy we got off the ship early like we did!
Jovie's first dip in the Ocean.
We had lunch on the island and then went back on the boat to enjoy some more pool time. At that point everyone was on the island so it wasn't busy on the ship at all!
Robb had a chance to ride the AquaDuck, there was only a 10 minute wait, versus the usual 45!
We had the mini golf course all to ourselves, the boys loved that!
And we got even luckier when someone asked us if we wanted to finish up their session in the sports simulator. They prepaid for an hour but only used 30 minutes! So fun!
watching Aladdin on the big screen.
We packed a lot into that day!
One last thing we wanted to do was go to the open house at the Oceaneer's Lab, the kids club that Grayden went to the night before. During the open house parents and younger siblings could check it out. It was so fun in there!
We had dinner at Animator's Palace, which was our favorite dining room!
The highlight of the dinner was when Crush, from Finding Nemo, came to talk to us on the interactive TV screen.
We met Mickey Mouse after dinner and the boys played shuffle board before the show started.
Sadler fell asleep again during the show, so we all headed to bed once it was over.
We woke up Sunday morning back in Florida and we were all off the ship by 8am.
The Disney bus was waiting for us and took us right to the airport, where we waited for our hotel shuttle to pick us up and brought us to the hotel.
We spent the day at the hotel pool, it was so nice and quite compared to the cruise pools!
We walked to Chili's for lunch and the boys rested in the room while I spent some time laying out.
For dinner Robb grabbed Carrabba's take out and brought it back to our room. We all went to bed early for our 5am wake up call the next morning!
We were back to GR at 1:30 Monday afternoon after another successful day of traveling.
We had such an amazing time, and are so thankful for the opportunity to share our love of cruising with our kids. They did amazing and we are so proud of them!
