We started out down to Port Canaveral the day before boarding the ship, which is highly recommended. We spent the night at the Country Inn and Suites right by the port. Great room, lots of space, and a great hot breakfast the next day. The breakfast room was full of energy of that days cruisers. We opted to drive our care to the terminal and pay to park there for the week. It is so easy to drop your luggage at the curb and walk right into the terminal. After security we checked in for the cruise and registered the kids for the kids club. We had one of the earliest boarding times so when we boarded we went right to Port Adventures desk. This is where you would get your tickets for the Princess meet and greets. We chose to do the Disney jr. breakfast so we received our tickets there. Then my husband signed up for some adult beverage tastings and it was time for lunch at Cabanas. So many yummy choices for everyone. Both my kids always to try new things on a cruise too! Rooms are ready at 1:30 so we dropped off our carry on then headed to the Tube for a meet and greet with our Facebook group. It was great to meet some other couples and both my kids instantly made friends with others their age. We hung out with two families all week which made everything more fun. Time for the sail away party then we were off to the Caribbean. Disney has rotational dining so our first night for dinner at Animators Palate (my favorite). Your servers stay with you the whole week as you rotate restaurants. Animators palate looks like you are inside the studio of a Disney Animator. After dinner the kids enjoyed time in clubs and my husband and I headed to get a drink. We all had a great night sleep. This cruise we were in a verandah room on deck 7. Each morning we had room service deliver coffee which we drank on the deck. It was Easter morning and the morning of our Disney Jr. Breakfast. The breakfast took place in Animator's Palate. As our favorite Disney Jr. shows played on the screens we enjoy Mickey waffles, eggs, and bacon and other yummy items as Goofy, Pluto, Jake, and Doc McStuffins came around for pictures. We enjoyed lots of fun things on the ship like the Great Detective Agency game, Disney Trivia, mini golf, swimming, and so much more. That night was formal night. We all dressed up in our finest! With dinner at Enchanted Garden. After dinner was Disney's Dreams, a Broadway style show with singing and dancing and of course our favorite characters.
