Each morning the deck was wet from cleaning. This is my path to hot water for breakfast.

Vacuuming the water happens daily.

Photo: Housekeeping staff vacuum in hallway each morning. Duck tape works like Magic. A real world illustration of what it takes to keep the Disney show going.

Vacate stateroom and be at breakfast by 8am. Luggage collected the night before.

 

Home made Thanksgiving dinner
Cheryl’s Thanksgiving dinner rivaled Disney’s.

 

No place like home and we got there 75 minutes after getting in our vehicle.

Photo 2013. Final photo from the past few days. All blog posts were written during the Disney Cruise. Photos were preloaded before sailing due to extremely limited wifi onboard.

 

2016 Disney Dream Cruise Day 5 fond farewell.

As amazing as the three stage shows were, none of them received a standing ovation.

Why notice this? Why share this observation?

Simply this – it reminded me how challenging it is for someone to go first.

Fear.

Can almost guarantee if someone in the front would have taken the risk to stand, everyone else would have followed.

Will we remain as thankful today as we were yesterday?

Will we rush right back into our busy routine, only taking time for gratitude when it’s convenient?

2016 Disney Dream Cruise Day 4 at Sea.

Sunrise from Deck 12 again. The hours spent on Castaway Cay were slow and easy. Tram to Serenity Bay, bike ride to observation tower, lunch (unplanned) with Orlando friends.

Nap on Deck 12 for all of us.

Disney premier of Moana in Dolby 3D before dinner and then the best food of the Cruise so far.

Fireworks at 10:30 pm and then retire to our stateroom.

Photo 2013. Super rare photo of me and Main Street USA Mayor. His re-election campaign slogan? “Pull the lever, vote for Weaver”.

Was tired and ready to go directly to our room after dinner. We stopped for a moment to see what was happening in the lobby. We had the least desirable view (behind the performers) because we arrived well after the lobby show began.

We stayed for 30 more minutes.

We unexpectedly discovered that in our undesirable viewing angle, we saw things in a whole new way.

Writing from the Disney Dream last night felt like a dream. It wasn’t a dream to do it. But it is an intentional reality to be able to work from anywhere at anytime.

Mission accomplished.
