Poor Molly Kate had a very stuffy nose and didn’t feel well. She spent the majority of the night on either mine or Jason’s chest. I was prepared though and had bought her nose syringe and our Young Living Essential Oils which definitely helped her to feel better.
We ordered pastries from room service since we were up early with the baby. We put on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for her and looked around the room at all the stuff we had to pack up. Sigh. That’s the worst part of the trip.
We left the room at 7 am to head up to Cabana’s. We were so excited to see that we were prepared to dock at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island. We stood on the back deck of Cabana’s watching the entire process for a good 20 minutes. The island was so beautiful and the water was so clear!
We grabbed a table with a great view of the island and enjoyed a delicious breakfast. We were so excited to be able to go on the island. We had decided ahead of time that I would stay back with Molly Kate so she could take a good nap and then we would join hubby and the older kids. But first, we had to get our family picture.
We had our matching shirts on and our mission was to get a picture of the ship behind us. We were one of the first families off the ship and we headed straight for one of the professional photographers. Unfortunately their lenses were fogging up due to the humidity and they weren’t allowed to take a picture of us with our iPhone. Luckily a wonderful guest stopped and took a great family photo for us.
We said our goodbyes and Molly Kate and I went back to the room. Jason and the kids headed to the family beach to enjoy the ocean, build a sandcastle and play on Pelican Plunge.
Molly Kate laid down right away and took a 2 hour nap. I know the poor girl had to be so tired! I used the opportunity to catch up on some work and what was going on with life back home (I bought the $89 internet package and used it for about 5 hours of the ship and only used 1/2 of the data).
When she woke up, we got ready and headed to the island. Unfortunately, she woke up on the wrong side of the crib and she was in a crabby mood. We ended up staying on the island only 30 minutes before we decided to head back to the ship. I guess she wasn’t liking the heat or the sun. I’m not really sure.
Jason and the older kids decided they wanted to head back with us too. It was very humid and they were wanting to go on the AquaDuck again. We decided to go to Cabana’s for lunch again so that we could sit in the air conditioning. As you can tell, we really liked Cabana’s.
After lunch, Jason and the kids headed to the AquaDuck while I took Molly Kate back to the stateroom for her second nap of the day. This time she slept an hour before she was up and in a much better mood. She was all smiles while we packed the room up together.
By the time they got back from Deck 11, the room was packed and ready to go. The kids decided to head off to the Kids Club and we walked around the ship enjoying our last afternoon. We stopped by the Future Cruise desk and booked a Placeholder Cruise. We had to pay a $200 deposit and we have to book our cruise within 18 months. We will save 10% off the next cruise. Yay! We then went to deck 4 and watched the people on Castaway Cay who had rented the water crafts. I always love people watching!
We stopped by the Kids Club and got the older kids and then headed for our final dinner at Enchanted Garden. Our waiters were so excited that Molly Kate was actually joining us for this dinner. They had set her place every evening just in case she didn’t go to It’s A Small World Nursery.
Enchanted Garden is a beautiful restaurant and we were in one of the round booths which gave us a great view of the dining rooms. The kids, of course, scarfed their food down so they could go back to the Kids Club. So before long, it was just us and Molly Kate. She was starting to get cranky, so we decided to skip dessert and head back to the room. We wanted to put her in bed early.
The fireworks from Pirate Night had been moved due to inclement weather and I knew the kids would enjoy it. I stayed in the room to give Molly Kate a bath and put her to bed (oh the joys of being a mom!) while they went to watch the fireworks. And as soon as they were over (I hear it was amazing!), they were back in the Kids Club. They wanted to say goodbye to their friends.
Jason went back and got them just in time for the “See Ya Real Soon” show in the lobby. This show is really cute and features the Fab 5 in their sailing outfits. After the show, you can meet the characters. They were able to see Mickey, Daisy and Pluto with minimal wait.
Then it was time to go to bed for our final sleep on the Dream. Luckily Ms. Molly Kate slept all night.
We had to be at breakfast at 6:45 am at Enchanted Garden (on your departure day, you eat breakfast at the restaurant you dined at the night before) so we got up early and said our goodbyes to our beautiful stateroom. We had no complaints about the room except that the door was heavy and it was hard to get a stroller through it when it was trying to close on you. But other than that, it was fabulous and our room attendant did an excellent job at keeping the room clean for us.
We ate our delicious breakfast and said goodbye to our amazing waiter. He did such a good job that I went to Guest Services just to pay a special compliment on him.
After our breakfast, it was time to depart from the ship. We had our carry ons and we walked right out the ship, through customs and was at our car within 20 minutes.
Our cruise on The Disney Dream was everything we could have hoped for and more. We had an absolutely amazing time and we can’t wait to go again.
