March 8th, Tuesday ~ Disney Wonder Day at Sea

March 8th, Tuesday ~ Disney Wonder Day at Sea

Today we got up early and enjoyed breakfast at Parrot Cay! It is our day for a Character Breakfast! Mickey and all his friends came to visit us at the table dressed in their best tropical beach clothing. Our friends did not join us for breakfast so we had the characters to ourselves. Duffy and Piglet joined in the fun and said hi to Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy and Chip. Dale was there but did not stop at our table. What a fun time we had! The food was great and the company even better!

At 10:15 am we went to see Chef Marcel from Disneyland’s Club 33 do another Disney’s Art of Entertaining. Today he was to teach us how to make Braised Prim Short Rib and Horseradish Foam. Instead of that he showed us how to make Dark chocolate Terrine with Strawberry Chantilly Cream. I must say we LOVED it!! After he showed us how to make it we got to taste it and they even pared a wine with it to show us how to pick a good wine to go with desert.
Next it was to the Buena Vista Theater to watch Tangled! We had hoped they would play this movie on the ship because we had not seen it yet. We loved the entire movie but the mime bits were amazing to us. (We are retired professional mimes.)

Right after the movie we enjoyed lunch and a few minutes to relax. Then back to the theatre to see a Disney’s Behind the Scenes with Leslie Iwerks! She is the granddaughter of Ub Iwerks, Walt’s original partner and co-designer of Mickey Mouse. In truth, as Ms. Iwerks says, Ub was the “Hand Behind the Mouse.” We watch her new award winning documentary on ILM (Industrial Light & Magic) and how they have affected the art of movie making and society in general. After the show there was a Q&A with Leslie Iwerks. It is interesting to know that 4 generations of Iworks have worked for the Disney Company, starting with Ub.

After the show it was back to the cabin to get ready for dinner. Tonight we are in the Animators Palate and tonight the room changed colors right before our eyes! What a wonderful meal and fin place to eat! Even though we will eat at Animators Palate 3 times on the trip this is the only night the room will change color during the meal.
We chose not to see tonight’s show because it was the Comedy and Ventriloquism of Taylor Mason. He is really a good performer but just not to our taste. He is clean but had a “touch of blue” in his humor, even when he knew his audience was families. Nothing rude or crude just a little on the edge for our taste. Instead of the show we spent time in the Quiet Cove adult pool area. We swam in the pool and relaxed in hot tub with our friends.
What a wonderful day!
