Sea Day 3
We started this day with Palo brunch. Palo is the adult only restaurant that requires reservations and an additional fee. We had done brunch before and it is one of my favorites! You start with a buffet of pastries, seafood, cheese and meats. You can then order from a menu that offers a variety of brunch items. And finally you have your choice of tasty treats from a dessert buffet. This was the only time I took pictures of my food. It was all so good!
We rolled out of Palo and went back to our room to change. We wanted to go see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. We got to the theater and found a huge line waiting to get in. Luckily, we were able to find seats but it was completely full. We enjoyed the movie a lot!
Next up was lunch and I actually replaced my afternoon nap with 2 miles of walking around Deck 4.
Our evening show was "Hector is Magic." He was a good magician but I didn't really care for his personality. I didn't think he had much showmanship and he seemed very egotistical. Our dinner tonight was at Animator's Palate and it was their standard menu.
Sea Day 4
Prior to boarding, we reserved seats for a character breakfast this morning. It is included in the cruise fare but reservations are required. It was a nice way to get some good pictures with the characters.
We finished our breakfast in time to make the second session of Ian Gooding about the Making of Moana. (We missed yesterday's session because of Palo's brunch but watched in on the stateroom TV).
Then we did lunch and I did my 2 miles again around Deck 4.
The evening show was a performer named Bret Shuford. He performed on Broadway in The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast in the ensemble. He did a show cabaret type show about his life. It was good. My favorite part was a medley of Sherman brothers songs that he did towards the end.
Our dinner tonight was at Carioca's. This is when the menus started to get interesting as we had gone through the standard menus for each restaurant already. Tonight it was a Toy Story menu. Now, there used to be a Toy Story show that was done in the main theater and when you saw that show then you had the Toy Story menu that night. But the show has been retired. So the menu was just sort of random. And at the end Minnie came out and did a little Latin style dance. It was very cute...but I thought that would fit more for when it was the standard menu for Carioca's.
I have been a huge Disney and travel fan since childhood. I love going to new places and, of course, heading to Disney as often as I can.
