We bought Gabby some sand toys and alternated building sandcastles, making Gabby into a "wormmaid" and swimming in the crystal clear water. Gabby managed to also have a dance party with Minnie Mouse and Goofy and watch hermit crab races.
The day was perfect! The sky's were blue and filled with fluffy white clouds and the water was the perfect to cool you off when you were too hot from playing in the sand. After we all had our full of the beach we went back to the ship to relax before our evening festivities were to begin!
Grandma and Grandpa filled us in in the happenings on the ship while the 3 of us were hanging out in paradise. They ride this really cool slide that goes over the ocean 3 times (we couldn't ride it because Gabby was a centimeter too small). They said it was super fun.
It was Pirate Night so we all got dressed up in our pirate gear before heading to dinner. We met Pirate Minnie, watched a pirate performance and sat in the rain to watch the not so impressive firework display put on by Disney. By the time we pushed the stroller back to the room Gabby was passed out.
The hostess taking care of our room had a big surprise for us (besides the golden chocolate coins and pirate bandannas we had been given earlier in the day). Gabby had soft princess sheets on her bed. She was very excited when she woke up the next morning and discovered she had slumbered with princesses. All of the small things add up to a magical experience. Everyone constantly called Gabby princess which made her grin from ear to ear. The world revolves around the kids during the cruise. All of the people who work on the ship are there to serve the children and ensure everyone has a magical experience, which I am happy to report we did!
