    bossdog421 got a reaction from Cile in Coco Beach Club- Beach Cabana and Full day pass   
    For a regular cabana that price is a pretty steep. I paid only like 100 more than that and was in the overwater cabana.  That said, i really liked the beach club area and the food was great.
     
    God willing I'll be back there in September. I will not be doing beach club this time.  I just didnt get to see a lot of the other areas as there was no real reason to leave my cabana.

    Yeah in confident it could be done with out much hassle it just wouldnt be enough and i want to focus on the cruise.
     
    I'm pretty sad i havent been to disney in like 4 years. There was a point were we were going at least once a month (before we even had kids lol). Then we moved to jersey and we going once a year for a while... then we started cruising.  I have magic kingdom down to a science. I draw up map routes based off of fast pass times I can do the entire park before 2pm as long as you are there for the rope drop and that's with stops for food and characters.
     
    A lot has changed and there is a ton of other new stuff happening so i can't want to get back. Now I need a good 5 days at a resort (poly please!) to fully enjoy myself there. 3-4 park days a resort day and some time at disney springs. Still havent seen the avatar or star wars areas. We are going to need to go in the next year or 2 because a lot of the "magic" is going to fade when our daughter hits teen years. I know she'd still have fun, its just not the same as they get older. I mean look at this... Sword in the Stone. I have been to Disney HUNDREDS of times. This is something i will never forget... Watching the act, I getting called up,  the sword doesn't budge... Oh i tried... I was gonna break that damn latch holding it in for all i cared. Then my daughter gets called up. I about shat myself. The look on her face and how she felt after pulling it out was just pure magic... i cant describe the feeling any other way.

     

     
    I view my vacations as a time to build unforgettable memories for my daughter. Disney did a great job of that but cruising seems to be a good transition into less kiddie trips. Hard to give up that stage... but its coming whether i like it or not.

    With all this dieting all i can think about is food. I know i'll have a genie and they can do all of the meal planning but i'm a bit of a plan freak. I have the entire cruise mapped out for where / when i want to eat already. We enjoy going to the venues so i doubt there will be much in room dining except for breakfast. We'll play that by ear once we see how much room there is for dining in the suite.
     
    Food plan -
    Day 1 - Leaving Jersey
    Lunch - Special Star Class lunch? Chops?
    Dinner - CK Filet night? Will move if its a different night
     
    Day 2 Sea Day -
    Breakfast - CK
    Lunch - Playmakers
    Dinner - Giovanni's
     
    Day 3 - Port Canaveral
    Breakfast - In room
    Lunch - With inlaws somewhere in FL. Cuban sandwich??? For those that read my last blog i like me a cuban sandwich. lol
    Dinner - Izumi Hibachi
     
    Day 4 - Coco Cay
    Breakfast - Johnny Rockets
    Lunch - Snack shack Chicken Sandwich. Maybe Captain Jacks for some wings. Is that included with star class?
    Dinner - Chops
     
    Day 5 - Nassau
    Breakfast - In room or CK
    Lunch - Something at Atlantis - Maybe Playmakers
    Dinner - 150 Central Park. This is the only one i'm not sure of. The menu doesn't seem great to the 3 of us. Might skip this one and just go to CK.
     
    Day 6 - Sea day
    Breakfast - CK
    Lunch - Johnny Rockets
    Dinner - Port Side BBQ (maybe in room)
     
    Day 7 😞

    Week 1 of my diet is complete. Down 8 pounds already! First week is the easiest and hardest part of this diet. The weight loss is going to slow down now as i reintroduce small amounts of carbs.  Time to start working out to keep up the fat burning!
     
    Is it cruise time yet???  Nope 125 days to go!

    It's mostly all inclusive. Captain Jacks (Wings and fires), beach club and the big water park are the only things not included outside of excursion activities / items (things like water skis, cabanas, & day beds, etc)
     
    There are a few snack shacks around the island to grab a bite at and the main dining venue that are included. Both have a pretty good selection depending on what you are looking for (the chicken sandwich at the snack shack is as good as people make it out to be, try it!). Drink package works the same as it does on the ship. Plenty of loungers around the island both by the pool and the beach that are free. Kids water attractions included, of beach type games and events are around too.
     
    I can't wait to go back and explore more than just the beach club!

    bossdog421 got a reaction from Ogilthorpe in POLL: Will you sail on a cruise before there is a COVID-19 vaccine?   
    I'm already booked in September and have no plans on changing it unless they cancel it. If i could go earlier i would.
     
    As for the discussion of masks. I wouldn't say it's a deal breaker at all but i wouldn't be happy if they were required everywhere. It just doesnt work. Dining? Pool / spa? Open air decks? Kids club? I think a compromise would be requiring them when attending shows where its much closer quarters for long periods of time. If there is any mask requirement good luck enforcing it, half the people that are wearing them now aren't wearing them properly which defeats a lot of the purpose.
     
    Temp checks are fine. If they have some sort of rapid testing i'd be fine with getting that done too (multiple times if needed). Spacing chairs out a bit inside and out would help too. Little things like that would at least provide some peace of mind. I'd feel comfortable without any of that too.
     
    I'm around this virus a lot, and the first month or so was without the "proper" ppe. Proper hygiene and common sense go a long way (yeah i know more is needed but my point remains).  Unfortunately both of those seem to be hard to come by when you are dealing with the masses. There will always be a risk.
     
    Edit: Didn't realize i already posted in this thread. I need a vacation lol... Oh well, the first post wasn't this detailed.

    I do plan on trying the filet at both ck and chops. I'm a bigger fan of ribeyes luckily my daughter loves steak so I'll have her get the filet at chops and ill get a ribeye and just try hers.
     
    Everyone says the filet is better at ck, so I have to try both to compare for myself!
