Jillian’s DCL Trip Report- Day 2

This morning we woke up and were ready for a full day at sea! The first order of business was breakfast at Beach Blanket Buffet! We all had a bit of everything, the clear favorite was the Mickey Waffles! I really enjoy the chocolate croissants and fresh fruit!

We went to the Lobby Atrium to meet some princesses next! We were a little early for our ticketed meet and greet so we went to meet Cinderella first. She quite enjoyed Petra’s dress as it lit up when she turned. After this meet we saw Rapunzel, Ariel, Tiana and Belle. They all adored the dress and asked if she had a Fairy Godmother who made it. After a quick wardrobe change we headed to our next meet and greet with Anna and Elsa from Frozen. I knew this one would be a hit with her because whose kid isn’t obsessed with Frozen still? While we waited in line they had us sit at a table and color so the line didn’t get too long.

Meeting princesses is fun and all but it was time for a swim. My daughter and husband hit up the pool while I went to the Buena Vista Theatre to see Big Hero 6!

When the movie was done my daughter was in the club and it was lunch time. We decided to check out Triton’s. I had the gingered-infused carrot soup, glazed meatloaf and key lime pie. Chelsey had the assorted sea food sampler, turkey melt sandwich, and the key lime pie as well. I have no idea what my daughter ate because she ate in the club which actually led to her trying new things!

At this point we signed up for a Mixology class! The cost is $15 per person but you get 5 drinks to try while you learn some mixing techniques and drink recipes!

Petra wasn’t tired of swimming just yet so we went again but this time to the Goofy Pool. It was really nice that Disney has swim vests so you can save the room in your suitcase! I particularly love how you can watch a movie while you swim around too, Teen Beach Movie happened to be on this time. Of course since we were so close we had to stop for ice cream and fruit!

This night was Pirates in the Caribbean so when we arrived in our room we had some bandannas and chocolate coins waiting for us. Dinner this night was not my favorite. The food just wasn’t good and we left with a feeling of meh. To eat I had Pirate’s golden pot stickers, Dutchman’s Dijon crusted sirloin of beef, and the sweet temptations sampler. My daughter enjoyed the macaroni and cheese with fries and broccoli.  My husband it looks like he had a crab cake and some steak.  Sorry about the lack of notes, but he too found the food lacking.

When dinner was done we went up to Deck 9 to check out the activities there. They were doing the challenge of Davy Jones, an interactive video game on the big screen. We played for a while before checking out the arcade. It is a smallish arcade, but it is fun if you want something else to do. The pirate party was starting complete with visits from many of the Disney characters. Is was pretty neat to see the type of show they put on complete with pirates coming down on ropes and Mickey flying over the deck to defeat Captain Hook! We watched fireworks (how awesome is that!) from Deck 10 before calling it a night.
