    Sailing on the Dream! Feb 12-16, 2012

    Well, I guess being sick is good for one thing- starting trip reports (I currently am stuck at home with laryngitis). So this looks to be as good as anytime to start.

    Before getting into the TR, here's some background info. I booked this cruise back in June 2011. The funny thing is, I booked it after seeing pictures/reports from other friends who had just sailed on the Dream! On this trip, it would be just me sailing. I booked an 11C stateroom (I didn't pick a specific room though, as it didn't matter to me). Also, since I get lost VERY easily, me and my dad decided it would be best if I parked at MCO and took a shuttle over. Well...let the TR begin!

    Bring it on. For Europeans like me, who can't do that easily a Disney Cruise, it's always great to read a Disney Cruise report.

    Sunday, Feb 12

    I left for MCO around 8am, and was parked by 8:30 (it was a nice morning, with no traffic). However, it was FREEZING!! I think it didn't go over 45* (go figure, when I wanted it to be warm, it would be so cold). Luckily I had my warm coat with me. It wasn't too hard to find the DME desk, though it was a bit of a hike. I quickly found that the best part about checking in at the airport, was that everything was taken care of right there! I got my room card with the dining rotation (I was ERAA- Enchanted Garden, Royal Palace, and Animator's Palate the last 2 nights), my shuttle-loading group (I was in Daisy, the first group to go), and my boarding # for the airport (I was in Group #3- woohoo!). Now there was nothing to do but wait! The wait wasn't too bad though. I had my book with me, but I couldn't really concentrate (as I was extremely excited about the cruise). Soon it was time to get on the shuttle! I dropped off my suitcase (and wouldn't have to worry about it, as it would be dropped off at my stateroom onboard), and got settled on the bus. The ride was not bad (and the video playing was cute). The first glimpse of the ship was awesome! I swear my jaw dropped.


    Getting in to the terminal wasn't too bad either. Everything had been taken care of at the airport, so time for more waiting. I took pictures around the waiting room (I loved the model ship), and got my picture with Captain Mickey. Minnie wasn't out that day, but I had a feeling I would see her onboard.








    Once they started calling numbers, it didn't take long at all to get on the ship! I think I only had to wait 5 minutes or so. I loved how the cast members announced the name of each party entering the ship (it was pretty cool). Lunch was being served, so I headed up to Cabanas. The food was not bad at all

    it's the simple things.. I love being able to eat with real plates, and real utensils... over the paper plates the parks use everywhere but the table service places.
