4: Our room wasn't ready. We found a way to keep ourselves busy....DISNEY CHARACTERS...
5: Pink is a champagne bar inspired by France's finest champagne. It makes you feel like your inside a champagne bottle.

8: The Butler family bathroom.
9: Let's get settled.

41: We went back to our room to rest our tummy's. Dinner was absolutely fantastic. Next we are off to the Walt Disney Theater to watch a show!
42: Disney's Villains show was exciting! I didn't realize how many villains Disney has created over the years. Here are some pictures of my favorites!
44: All hands needed on deck to save The Disney Dream from Captain Jack Sparrow. Disney kicked it off with their classic fireworks at sea!!!
46: The Pirate's Buffet immediately followed Club Pirate. We recently ate dinner a few hours earlier. Unfortunately, we can't digest food that fast. However, I thought this was unique.
47: I almost forgot my signature. The start of every book. We always take pictures of the room number. The rooms are very unique because your room key must be inserted to power up the room. No lights or TV without a key!!!
48: Our luck ran out on this cruise. We didn't go to Castaway Cay due to bad weather. Our captain couldn't safely take us into port.
49: Witney and I took advantage of some things offered on the ship. We went to Any One Can Cook class. We didn't actually make the Lobster Ravioli but it was very tasty. It definitely couldn't take the place of the BBQ usually offered on Castaway Cay, but we made the best of it.
52: Animator's Palate was extremely interactive. The cartoon characters interacted with the guest at dinner. The utensils looked like paint supplies. It was dining in true fairy tale Disney style.
54: The presentation of the food was incredible. It tasted as good as it looked.!
55: Our room was ready for us to catch some....
57: After attending our final show, Disney's Believe (left page) we headed back to our room to pack our suitcases. It was a great getaway! Good bye Disney Dream the Butler's are heading home!
