Sailing on a Dream

Because of our status with the Disney Destinations as travel agents, we were invited to their annual Earmarked conference.  This year was even more special because it was held on Disney Cruise Line's newest ship, the Disney Dream.  Our cruise was a preview cruise.

The Disney Dream is a beautiful ship with many magical touches that you can expect from Disney.  Hannah and I had a blast exploring when Chet was in his meetings all day.

Hannah loved the Enchanted Pictures that were scattered all over the ship.  The pictures come to life when you wave your hand, animating the picture in the frame.  In this photo, the picture comes to life and you can drive the ship to find the treasure.

Since we were on a preview cruise, the ship wasn't full so the lines weren't as long.  We got to see all of the princesses twice!
Since Hannah isn't quite three, she wasn't able to visit the kids' club by herself yet.  The nice thing about sailing with Disney, is that we can visit the clubs with her anytime we want as long as we stay with her.
Hannah loved climbing on Slinky Dog and putting together the giant Mr. Potato Head in Andy's Room.  She dressed up as Snow White in Pixie Hollow and played with the monsters at the Monster's Academy of Monster's Inc.  Belle even came to play with the kids in the club while we were there.  Oh, to be a kid again!
Our favorite restaurant on the ship was definitely Animator's Palate.  The decor is inspired by an animator's desk.  During the meal, Crush the turtle from Finding Nemo swims around the restaurant interacting live with the guests.  Hannah still talks about eating with Crush.
Enjoy our day at the beach on Disney's Castaway Cay.
Hannah was so cute with the characters this trip.  This was the first trip that she wanted all of the characters to "sign their name" in her autograph book.  She'd hold open her book and run to the characters as soon as it was her turn.  
I love listening to her conversations that she has with each of the characters.  She asks Belle where the Beast is.  She told Sleeping Beauty that the prince got the dragon for her.  My favorite this time was that she wanted to tell Mary Poppins, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." We had breakfast with her before our cruise and Hannah was so star struck that she didn't tell her.  After she left, she exclaimed disappointed, "I forgot to tell Mary Poppins supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!"  (Hearing her trying to say, supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, is funny in itself!)
