The second stop was on Disney's Castaway Cay, which was by far our favorite day of the whole trip. First, we loved that we could get on and off the ship easily and still be at the island without an hour of transporting. Because of that, that morning we ran a 5K with our cruise bellies and all. I'm not going to say it was easy. Good grief we had eaten an incredible amount of food, but it was totally worth it. The island had free strollers on it (another amazing perk) and Henley was great until the end of the race and that's when things got a little ugly.
We spent at least an hour before and after the beach at the splash pad. It was love at first splash.
Just lounging in the wagon after a long day of work.
On this trip we became the parent's that wear their shirts and cover-ups in all pictures. Not sure what made us hit that point in our lives, but it happened.
These little stranger girls were so nice to Henley and were great to let her use their bucket for a little while. The water and sand were gorgeous and we tried to soak in as much as we could.
I don't know if you can tell, but this is the end of the day. We were happy and completely trashed.
Tyler quickly became Henley's favorite. It is probably because he could not have cared less if she liked him.
For dinner that night, they had a pirate theme. Let's just say that we look amazing in bandanas.
More ducks + more splash pad = more love
On the last night of the cruise, Summerisa gave us special VIP passes to meet all of the characters. She also gave Henley an Anna princess dress.
Every time we took a picture with a character that wasn't wearing a mask, Henley didn't care. I don't think she understood why we were taking a picture with someone that looked completely normal.
The gang's all here!!
The day we got off the ship we headed straight for Animal Kingdom where we spent half of a day and then sped to the airport. It was an exhausting day, but so much fun. Pretty sure I was too tired to take any pictures. All in all it was a superb family trip. Disney cruises are the way to go for kids and adults. We had such a good time at the performances and the stops. They always had stuff going on for all age groups. A great vacation to end our grad school journey!
