[Disney Cruise] Day 3

Thursday, November 12, 2015

And we're on to Day 3 of our cruise - our first full day at sea! In case you missed it, you can find Days 1 and 2 here : Day 1 and Day 2.

Day 3 was our first day at sea and surprisingly we had a lot planned! It started off with some silly pictures as we were waiting for Daddy to finish getting ready so we could head to breakfast. I just die over this picture. I mean, look at how he's holding his little hands. So proper!

After Seth was finally ready, we headed to breakfast and then it was time to meet the princesses! When we boarded the ship, we were able to sign up for a day to see the princesses. You see, the princesses were special. You couldn't just walk up to them and see them like the other characters, you had to get (free) tickets to see them. These tickets also included Anna, Elsa, and Olaf, which you already know are always highly sought after. Luckily for us, some of our family members were smart and checked in earlier than I did and got on the ship about 3 hours hours before us. They were able to register our whole party for the meeting of the princesses and so we were able to meet them on the first day at sea.

I apologize for the quality of these pictures. The lighting on the ship was HORRIBLE (probably on purpose so you'd by their pictures but I was too cheap to buy their $20.95 8x10's so this is what I've got!). Mason, as you can tell, was less than impressed with the princesses.

Rapunzel... she's ok.

I'll teach you to take my picture with a princess, I'll stick my finger up my nose! Oh wait, we're still taking pictures?? Not happy!

Belle... she's ok too.

But Cinderella?? NOPE. No way. Get. Me. Out. Of. Here!

Yeah, don't like Olaf, Anna, or Elsa either, Mom!

Tinkerbell? Ok, she's ok too.

After the traumatic princess encounter, we went back to the room to get ready for Mickey's Halloween Party. (Already re-capped, if you're interested in reading, you can find it here).

The party was super, super fun and definitely got us in the Halloween spirit! When it was over, it was time for lunch, so we went to the top deck to have some lunch by the pool and of course, have some more frozen yogurt.

At this point, it was now time for Mason to take a nap. My mother in law super generously offered to watch him and let us go to the pool. So we went back to the room and got ready and then headed back upstairs for some pool time.

A couple hours later, we headed back to the room to get ready for dinner. It was Halloween themed night, so we all put back on our Halloween costumes and prepared for dinner at the Parrot Cay restaurant. We noticed that Goofy was having a photo opp on the deck before dinner, so I went early to get in line and Mason and Seth met up with me a few minutes later. Goofy he actually liked!

Mickey bars for dessert!

After dinner and before the show, we met Donald. He was ok with Donald. Then we headed over to the theater for that night's show - a musical of Toy Story. This night's show was excellent and though I say it about every night, Mason LOVED it!

We came back to our room after the show and found this guy waiting for us.

At this point, it was time to head to bed and prepare for our port adventures in Cabo San Lucas on Day 4!

Stay tuned for Days 4, 5, and 6!


  1. I love his costume, it's just too dang cute. & I cannot believe that he didn't enjoy the princesses especially Cinderella, he was not diggin' her AT ALL! Ha!

  2. What a full, amazing day! Henry is still a little scared by dress-up characters!

  3. Goofy is the best! How cute is he all dressed like a mummy. Funny about the princesses but nice that you can knock them all out like that. Aria's only seen a few since we don't like lines =)

  4. Reed is the same with the characters. He likes all of the ones that are actual characters with heads, but he can't stand any that you can tell are people. His least favorite is Santa. I'm interested to see how the Santa photo op goes this year! I'm picturing him looking about like your Cinderella picture!

  5. Of all the characters, I have to say Mason picked the best to warm up to - Goofy and Donald beat out princesses any day (at least in my book)!
    Let's talk those Mickey ice cream bars. Could you just grab those whenever you wanted?! We make it a point to get one every time we are at DLand, and sometimes they're hard to come by (they don't start selling them before 11AM)!
    Mad points to your mother in law for giving you and Seth a little adult time at the pool!
    For a day at sea, you sure packed in a lot of fun on the ship.

  6. The Princesses!!! Love them! The last time we were at Disneyland Kinsey was 2.5 and she wanted NOTHING to do with any characters lol. Man, that foooood! Yum.

  7. hahaha looks like he really liked Belle and Tinkerbelle! I'm with you Mason, those are a couple of my favourites too. I can't wait to hear how you liked Cabo. That's where we honeymooned!

  8. So loving these recaps! THE FOOD!!!! Totally drooling all over my keyboard right now.

  9. Too funny how some characters he liked and others not so much! Noah used to be terrified of them but since sesame place he's better with them.

  10. Gah, SO FUN!! Seriously, you guys had to have a perma-grin on your face THE WHOLE TIME. Especially watching Mason. But the princesses + finger up nose = BEST THING!! :)

  11. So much fun all of those princesses, my girls would have screamed their little heads off. It's awesome you were able to get in some adult pool time too. Man you guys had the best time didn't you?!

  12. Callie would have been crazy about those princesses!!! So glad you got to see them how fun! Glad Ariel came ashore to meet Everyone at sea. wouldn't be right to be on the ocean without the little mermaid! I want one of those Micky bars! :) and your MIL is awesome to let you guys get some pool time!
