Meridian on the Disney Dream

Greetings, fellow Castaways! One of the places you’ll often find me when I’m sailing aboard the Disney Dream is Meridian Lounge. Cleverly named as it straddles the keel line of the ship, this quiet, classy, warm space is just perfect for a relaxing drink and light conversation with fellow cruisers. I love hanging out at…

Royal Palace Redux

Ahoy! While I have already posted about Royal Palace once before, I feel this beautiful space is worth photos from my second cruise. Beautiful light fixtures, lovely portraits of royalty, and service on par with queens and kings of yore make this restaurant a wonderful experience. Melissa wrote a review over on her site, and…

Run(a)way to Relaxation: Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar

Kungaloosh! I don’t have too much to say about Jock Lindsey’s other than: I LOVE THIS PLACE. The food is great, the atmosphere is better, and the service is absolutely (flying) aces! Melissa wrote up a whole bunch more on her post over here, while I just shared a ton of photos from our two…

Adults Only: Serenity Bay on Castaway Cay

Welcome ashore, One of my favorite places on earth is Castaway Cay – the private island Disney owns and uses solely for Disney Cruise Guests. My favorite spot on this favorite island is Serenity Bay: the adults-only stretch of amazing beach, snorkeling area, bar, and restaurant. As per usual, Melissa wrote a more-extensive post on…

Cretaceous Christmas

Merry Christmas! One of the oft-maligned lands at Walt Disney World is Dinoland, U.S.A. I love it – without apology – for what it is: a perfectly-themed roadside attraction and carnival that sprung up in the middle of the 20th Century around the site of an archaeological dig. Melissa has written much more about this…

Dance on the Disney Dream

Ahoy hoy! Nothing says “drop it down to the flo’ and bring it up slow” like Disney’s five most famous characters: Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, and Daisy. Throw in a couple of chipmunks and Mickey’s dog Pluto for good measure and you’ve got the hottest party on the seven seas – my personal favorite is…

Osborne Lights… Out.

Welcome back! This is the last year for the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. Much like my Last Christmas at Camp Minnie-Mickey post, this article may sadden many of you. I hope, rather than making you sad, you’ll bookmark this post and pay it a visit any time you miss the most amazing Spectacle…

Harambe Holidays

Jambo! I visited Animal Kingdom twice last week. It’s no secret that I love Harambe, New Harambe, and Harambe Marketplace, which is why I was so excited to see the Imagineers have been busy decorating my favorite African destination for the holidays! I couldn’t stop taking photos of the creative decorations – some old and…

Disney Dream Martini Tasting

Ahoy! This past summer, Melissa and I set sail upon the Disney Dream. Due to my previous experience on the ship, I made sure we would book at least one tasting experience. The experience that best fit our schedule was the Martini Tasting in my favorite bar: The Meridian. Below, I’ve shared several pics that…

Characters in Flight at Downtown Disney

Hello down there! Melissa and I recently sailed aboard the Disney Dream – after picking her up from the airport, we swung by Downtown Disney for lunch at BOATHOUSE and a trip up into the sky on Characters in Flight before embarkation at Port Canaveral. The pics speak for themselves – and perfectly showcase the…

State of the Staterooms

Ahoy! This is my first post – I think? I’m bad at this blogging thing – since Melissa and I returned from our amazing cruise aboard the Disney Dream. While my fiancĂ©e has a much more in-depth review of the staterooms, I provide you with a quick rundown of two different types of cabin. Both…

All-Star Food Truck

Welcome back! In this short post, I share with you the most awesome “inconvenience” ever visited on me by Walt Disney World: the All-Star Food Truck! It turns out that during our recent one-night stay, our resort’s food court was under refurbishment. Disney played it smart and brought one of their Downtown Disney food trucks…
