As my subject stated, we sailed the Dream from Feb 12 - Feb 19th. Visiting Nassau, St. Thomas and St. Maarten. We flew down a couple of days early and stayed at Pop Century in Disney. We were going to do a day at Magic Kingdom but it didn't work out due to a stomach virus. We drove from Toronto to Buffalo on the Wednesday night but that day when we picked up our son from school he wasn't feeling well. Within 2 hours of our drive he started having diarrhea and vomiting all over the car. Yikes!!
What a start! LOL It took us forever to get to Buffalo, I felt so bad for him and for us! Trust me - the car did not smell pretty!! We finally arrived at our hotel, The Millenium right beside Walden Galleria. Not the best hotel, but not the most horrible either. For the few hours we were there, it was perfect. We just left our car there the whole week. We only paid an extra $30 more than we would've at the airport.
Thursday morning, my son felt better but still couldn't eat much due to the diarrhea. Sorry! :P Before leaving for the airport we went to Target and bought some dry cereal with a box of crackers. I wasn't sure if they'd let us on the plane with this but thought we'd try anyway. Had no problems, and my son made it through the flight with no problems. By the time we got on our flight he was feeling much better. We were also delayed 1 1/2 hr due to a mask compartment that wouldn't close. They were waiting for maintenance, but eventually just taped it up by themselves. We didn't even make it to Pop Century until 11:30pm, by this time we were all pretty tired. But very excited that my sons 24 hr bug was gone and couldn't wait to visit Magic Kingdom the next morning!
Well... it's about 5am and my hubby wakes up running to the washroom. That's right, you guessed it... that little bug jumped into him now! He got it bad, and was in bed until 1pm on the Friday. Thank goodness we never bought the tickets, we never wait till last minute but this time we did and it worked out for the best. The kids understood why we couldn't go and enjoyed the resort instead. Even though it was a cold day and we had to wear our jackets. lol Later than evening we also took them to Downtown Disney. I don't know how DH made it through the night, he was quite the trooper I tell ya!
Here's just a few pics before I get onto the cruise. =)
The wonderful masks that delayed us...
Checking out the Pop Century Resort
LOVED THESE TREES!! So glad to be away from the snow!
This was the best...
Kids: What is that?
Us: A walkman
Kids: What's a walkman?
Us: That's what we used to listen to music. You put a cassette inside.
Kids: What's a cassette??
LOL... it was quite a funny conversation....
Will be back with more goodies shortly.
