This morning we woke up and checked out of the hotel, then went to breakfast at our favorite local breakfast spot – the Southern Charm Cafe. Our port arrival time was 12:45 PM (UGH- don’t get me started!!! The Disney Cruise Line website was NOT working for our online check in & I gave up after 2.5 hours so we ended up with a late Port Arrival Time), so we had a bit of time to kill.
Our first glimpse of the Wish!
We got to the terminal and breezed through security.
Everyone that works for DCL is so nice! We only had to wait 20 minutes inside the terminal before we were able to board. I came prepared with my purple Minnie ears!
CSP doesn’t commit to a theme like I do! Ha!
Then it was time to board!!! They announced our name and gave me a Wishing Wand! We took a quick seat to get our bearings and decide where we wanted to go first.
We decided to go to the Keg & Compass for a quick drink and some air conditioning. It’s the Nordic themed sports bar onboard.
After we’d cooled down a bit we went to the Luna lounge for our muster drill. LOVE LOVE LOVE the new way to do muster drills!!! You scan a sign with your phone, watch a video (anywhere- you don’t have to stand there) and BOOM you’re finished! No more being squished up against all of humanity in the hot Florida sun on the deck for 30 minutes! Praise be!!!
By now our room was ready so we went to check it out!
We stayed in room 6562- a verandah room.
Because we’ve sailed with Disney before, we were greeted with gifts in our stateroom. We received this travel wallet….
…and this tote bag!
Disney lets you bring alcohol onboard so CSP unpacked his beer and got it chilling in the fridge.
By now our luggage had arrived (SO FAST!!!) so we went ahead and unpacked. We made a few FaceTime calls to home. Then we went up to Deck 11 for drinks and sail away!
My MIL watched the Wish sail away and took some screenshots of the ship.
We had to stop by Guest Services to rent an extension cord (you can’t bring your own as they are a fire hazard). On the way back to our room we stopped by Keg & Compass to get CSP a refillable beer mug (you get discounted beer this way).
We got back to the room where we met our room steward Ed (SO NICE!!!). Then CSP plugged in the extension cord and POP! the tv and lights went out!!! Ooooopsie!!! I called Guest Services who sent an electrician to our room. He was there in a flash and got us all fixed up! Apparently the cord was faulty. Then it was time to get ready for dinner.
On the way to dinner we stopped by Mickey’s Mainsail gift shop but it was a MADHOUSE!!!
Dinner tonight was in Worlds of Marvel. We sat at table 510.
The show is a recorded program with Ant Man and the Wasp. It was really cute!
The thing on the table lit up in all different colors and Ant Man would prompt you to press the button to “shrink” items. The show was cute but our food was cold, the menu wasn’t anything to write home about, and it was SO LOUD in there we couldn’t carry on a conversation with each other. Not our favorite dining room.
The salt and pepper shakers (seen above at the bottom of the frame) were cute though!
After dinner we stopped back by Mickey’s Mainsail to buy a magnet. We always get a Disney Cruise Line magnet with the year on it as our souvenir. But they didn’t have any with the year on them! Booo!!!
It was a long day and we were beat so we went back to the room and went to bed!
