Hi Everyone!!

 

So I just got back from an amazing week in Central Florida and a 4 night, 5 day voyage on board the Disney Dream.

 

This was a crazy non-stop trip so below is a little recap of each day:

12/4 - Universal Orlando & Fun Spot America

12/5 - Universal Orlando & Solar Bears ECHL Hockey Game

12/6 - Busch Gardens Tampa / Disney Springs for Morimoto's and Boathouse

12/7 - Boarded the Disney Dream

12/8 - Nassau, Bahamas

12/9 - Castaway Cay, Bahamas (Disney's Private Island)

12/10 - Day at Sea

12/11 - Disembarked the Disney Dream / SeaWorld Orlando

12/12 - Walt Disney World

Something is missing here... Looks like a creation right out of RCT, the only thing missing is trains launching and exploding upon impact!

I love Jurassic Park, I do prefer Hollywood's version more!

IMG_6722.thumb.JPG.765e6166358e22129ae3a1dbd37a568f.JPG

Still such a terrific dark ride! I find it better than Transformers.

IMG_6723.thumb.JPG.c15936d595b8777947c8bff7e51e0a8e.JPG

I did not ride this trip, I didn't feel like a face full of water... Still Ripsaw Falls is a great flume!

Rode Jurassic Park quite a few times this night, a few times, the only person on board. That equaled light misting.

IMG_6732.thumb.JPG.7aaf3008971b4eeb3a510e8d1d9c3f79.JPG

Love the icon of Fun Spot America, the SkyCoaster has quite an impact on the evening sky.

IMG_6774.thumb.JPG.061f21692e50552c45fd90173e799d59.JPG

Cheetah Hunt (we like to call it chunt) A great family coaster!

Kumba, seriously one of the best B&M coasters around. Super smooth and very snappy transitions. This well paced coaster is still in my top ten!

At first glance, the ship is beautiful!

IMG_6820.thumb.JPG.ac18d768cbf14fe43779e49804da5417.JPG

Some size comparison, Disney Dream is slightly smaller than the Voyager Class of ships on Royal Caribbean but larger than the Radiance Class.

While this is a Disney ship, the decor is very subtle and not as "In your face" as you would expect. It was very tastefully done!

IMG_6839.thumb.JPG.48f00d13603747f544bed8d0e920be21.JPG

The Disney Dream has two funnels to represent the ships of the past, one is functional and one is a facade.

Both Carnival ships at some point spewed out black smoke, I didn't see Disney or Royal do that at all!

So many amazing photos!! Really making me want to book a Disney Dream cruise!!! Can't wait for more of the Trip Report!

 

Also, I find it weird that two Disney ships were at the same port at the same time. I thought Disney took great care to make sure that never happened. . . Or at least they use to.

Wow. The Carnival ships spewing out all that black smoke is absolutely disgusting. I don't think I've ever seen a cruise ship putting out smoke like that. I would never sign up for a Carnival cruise! Blegh.

 

Thanks for the photos, John! Looks like a great time.

Great trip report so far! Like the posters above I would love to go on a Disney cruise. I also have to say that I love the color scheme on the Disney cruise ships, they looks really beautiful! (was also great to see one of their ships with my own eyes when Disney Magic came to town earlier this year)

Decided on a last minute trip to SeaWorld Orlando. First time back to this park since before Manta Opened

IMG_7188.thumb.JPG.a045da77845afd8ecb08cea8739d2535.JPG

I do have to say that Manta is one of my favorite B&M Flyers. It was just a lot of fun!

Also, I was the only person on my Journey to Atlantis boat, so I only got a light misting. Definitely the best version of the ride.

Kraken is also a very good B&M Floorless

And also decided to head back to Disney Springs for a drink at the Hangar Bar

IMG_7230.thumb.JPG.e757540570a67d5600420535c31ab061.JPG

One thing that we did at Castaway Cay was snorkel. Was a lot of fun seeing an old WDW 2000 Leagues Under the Sea ride vehicle turned into an artificial reef.

Dan, Derek and I had a super fun time on board the Disney Dream, while Royal Caribbean is still my favorite, I would still sail Disney again!
