Oceaneer Lab

Before February is over, I wanted to post one more time about our Disney Cruise. My kids enjoyed attending a few classes at the Oceaneer Lab. One of the classes was Ratatouille Cooking School, where they made their very own chocolate chip cookies. The second class was Flubber and this one was a BIG hit. We still have our flubber.
The lab was full of fun stuff like Wii's and about 40 computers it seemed. Lots of lego type kids loved and begged to go in there. I think this is the cutest picture of all the little scientist.

Before the cruise, I never knew how nice and how organized everything was. Every night for dinner you go to a new fine dinning place... on the first day you are given pre-arranged seating assignments. Every night at all the different restaurants we sat at table 44 with the same sweet family that had kids our kids age. Your servers follow you to each new place too. On the first night Ricardo (our server) new right off the bat all the kids names. We started looking forward to seeing him at dinner. On the last night of the cruise, we were to eat at Animator's Palate...this was my absolute favorite. Everything ...the walls, pictures and even the servers vest start off in black and white but then once you get into dinner things start to change colors. In the picture above you can see where the chefs came out so we could thank them for a job well done on the last night.

At one of my meals I ordered chips and salsa for my appetizer and look how they came...they were so delish!

Here is my chocolate peanut butter pie at Animator's Palate. Unbelievable!!!!
Disney Cruise Line is amazing! I still feel like it was a dream.

Oooh those restaurants sound divine! I'd gain 50 lbs I'm sure of it!!!
So glad your kiddos had fun. The lab looks like the Science Center here which is a big hit with Bryce. Hmmm, maybe a Disney cruise should be on our 'to do oneday' list as well!
Happy TGIF day chicadee~ Hugs, Les

O.K. I have just sat here and read your blog through sometime last November! Love it, love you! We live in Canton, Georgia and love to take day trips in our own state (and the boys do love to cross over the state lines, just to say we did). We have always wanted to go on a Disney Cruise so thank you for posting real pictures. I showed my boys and they were so excited to see them! All of your travels are so interesting. I am terribly jealous! So glad that I found you, my fellow Georgian (for now).
Come by for a visit sometime. Maybe I need to get on the Ga Bloggers thing...
