Trip Report: January 9, 2019 Galveston to San Juan on the Disney Wonder – Day 3
If you remember, I ordered bacon, eggs, fruit and pancakes for 5. It was SOOO much food!
We had princess to meet this morning! My daughter and I went to the princess meet and greet first. It includes Cinderella, Arial, Tiana and Belle. We then went to the Frozen gathering. When we were on the Dream last year, it was Elsa and Anna. This year, it was only Anna. Apparently Elsa was stuck in her ice castle all week (also known as sick). My little one was very disappointed, but she she was still excited to meet Anna. They boys wanted to go to Oceaneer club for Spider Man’s Web Warriors 101, so my husband took them and got a few minutes alone.
After the princesses, we met up with my husband and went up to the concierge lounge. Our middle child had lost his Stitch keychain at dinner last night, so we went to see if they could track it down for us. I got a mocha (that coffee machine in the lounge is AMAZING!) My husband got some hot tea and our daughter had chocolate milk and fruit. We went for a walk around the ship, and then we dropped her off at Oceaneer club so she could Doc McStuffins Pet Hospital. I really wish they took pictures in the club. I would have loved to see her participate in this. She still talks about it! And our boys still talk about all the superhero training they got to do!
Since we were randomly kid free, we went to the spa to use the rainforest pass I had purchased. It was ok. We were glad we only bought a day pass. It was kind of busy, we had to wait for a lounge chair, and then we felt guilty when other people came in. I’m glad we tried it, but we probably won’t do it again.
Since we were still kid free, we went to the Disney Vacation Club seminar because we were curious. They were also giving away a $200 stateroom credit. We didn’t win. But they did give everyone a $25 stateroom credit so that was nice! We went and picked our kids up. None of them ate lunch while there because we didn’t tell them too! So we headed up to concierge and all had lunch. Sandwiches, salad and fruit. We got drinks and popcorn then went to see Mary Poppins Returns. We loved it! Our daughter fell asleep and had a nice little nap.
After the movie, our oldest and youngest wanted to swim, so we did a quick change and headed to the pool. Our middle wanted to relax, so he and my husband had some downtime in the room. Those of us at the pool had ice cream cones and did some swimming. We then met up with my husband and middle child in the lounge for the concierge party. Stitch was there which made my boys super happy! There were also rice krispie mickey bars, so the kids stocked up on those.
We went back to the room to get changed for diner. The kids watched some Moana, I read on the verandah. We then headed off to dinner at Tritons.
Fried brie- awesome
Duck confit- ok
French onion soup – delicious
Farmhouse salad- good
Filet – good
Duck breast – delicious
Lobster pasta - ok (this is what I ordered initially and Stefan suggested I choose something else because people tend to be disappointed in it. So I ordered the duck and he brought me a side dish of this. He was right. It was just ok. )
Crème Brule – good
Apple tart – ok
Grand marnie soufflé –awesome
The moms decided we should take a group photo. With the digital photo package on the ship, it is for your stateroom only. Even though our reservations were all linked together, this did not allow all our photos to be linked. If anyone from our stateroom was in the photo, then those photos were included in our package.
We went to concierge for popcorn and drinks and then picked the kids up from Oceaneer club and went to Frozen. We got there at 8:15 and it was packed! The 5 of us shared 3 seats and we were lucky to get those together! There were people sitting in the aisles on the steps! The show was good, but we all said we liked the Golden Mickeys better.
Our daughter lost her mind after the show. She had an epic meltdown right in front of the elevators. I mean, laying on the ground, screaming and kicking. Another great thing about Disney cruises, no one is surprised or bothered by melting down kiddos. I got a lot of sympathetic “I have been there” looks, which I was thankful for! She finally worked it out and we all got back to the room to get ready for bed. The kids loved our monkey towel animal tonight!
