Today we woke up early and got ready for embarkation!
We were lucky we’d stopped at Buc-ee’s yesterday because the breakfast at the hotel was pitiful so we ate our Buc-ee’s goodies instead. We re-packed the car and hit the road for Port Canaveral! Luckily it was only about 40 minutes south of our hotel. Our first view of the Disney Fantasy-
Our Port arrival time was scheduled for 12 noon. By 12:45 pm we had parked, handed off our luggage to porters, gone through security, and were on the ship! I love how Disney announces each family and claps for you as you board! First we went to Guest Services to borrow an extension cord for our CPAP machines. Then down to deck 2 to secure a reservation at Palo (the adults only Italian restaurant on board). I was able to snag us a reservation for Friday night! Perfect! Next we went up to Animator’s Palate for lunch (we prefer the sit down lunch vs the buffet on embarkation day).
By the time lunch was over our room was ready so off to deck 5 we went! Our Key to the World cards were waiting for us outside of our room. They are your room key and your charge card on the ship.
We stayed in stateroom 5544, just off the Forward elevators.
As a surprise for my MIL, we had the room decorated for her birthday! She was so surprised and loved it!
Our Castaway Club gifts! A sling bag, 2 lanyards, and a luggage tag.
Our luggage began arriving so we pulled that inside and then it was time to go to the Walt Disney Theatre for the muster drill. After the drill we stopped by O’Gill’s pub for drinks- I got the Paradise Punch, the drink of the day. Then we went back to our room to unpack our luggage.
Once we were finished unpacking we went up to the drink station to fill up our reusable cups (pro tip! bring a reusable cup like mine and fill it up at the beverage station to bring back to your room!). We stopped in the gift shop to pick up our 2023 cruise magnet then went back to the room to get ready for dinner. We met our room steward Putra from the Philippines.
Tonight’s dinner was at Animator’s Palate. We were sat at table 18.
On the Disney ships you sit at the same table number in each of the dining rooms each night and your service team follows you from dining room to dining room. Our team is Sher-Ann from the Philippines and Rafael from the Dominican Republic.
We had the second dinner seating at 8:15 pm each night. After dinner tonight we went back to the room and went to bed! It was a long, fun day!
Tomorrow is our first sea day and we have lots of plans!
