Do You Believe in Magic?

7-Day Western Carribean Cruise on the Disney Magic

It's the night before our latest Disney Cruise and this time we are hitting some new destinations. This makes me very excited. What am I most excited about? Probably the first day at sea where I plan on going on full introvert mode. I haven't had any serious downtime in over a year and the stress of it is showing to those who know how to look. After that, I will probably have enough energy to deal with all the Disney Magic ... on the Magic.

We will be exploring ruins in Cozumel, viewing sea life in Grand Cayman, pretending to be the Jamaican Bobsled team in Jamaica, and then enjoying the day at Castaway Cay. I might need a vacation from my vacation!

Tonight we are just chilling at the Hyatt in MCO. It's an awesome hotel, you don't even hear the airplanes even though we can see them taking off and landing.

After we had all settled into the room, we headed down to McCoy's for some dinner. Steak, burgers, and sushi. Winning all around. 




Our waiter was Fantabulous! The kitchen got Joy's order either wrong or mixed up with someone else's meal and caught it right before her plate was set down. She's been testing the limits of her intolerances, but we both know she can't have both cheese and chocolate milk in the same sitting. Lactaid just isn't that powerful.

After dinner, we did some window shopping on the concourse, got dessert, and then back to the room for the resultant food coma. First one in ... like forever. I can't believe I used to feel like this all of the time. Joy recovered first, but she had the motivation of the outdoor pool. So off we trooped to the pool. I watched Hank, Joy, and the lightning show (incredibly hard to get decent photos of, by the way). Cold water and I don't get along.

Last, but not least, what's the point in staying in a good hotel if you can't sample the room service. Apparently swimming had reawakened everyone's appetite.

And now for the next food coma. I need like a gallon of water. Stat. We have an early morning ahead of us.
