That’s my excuse for why I haven’t written a blog post in…forever. I’m dead. I’m tired, I’m exhausted, and I’m ready to go home. Which is perfect, because I only have three weeks left!!! Huzzah! Yup, just three more cabin inspections, two more Crew Drills, and only one more trip back to the Mexican coast before I get to head back to the good old Jer-zee. Oh, and what a send off it will be! There’s six of us leaving together, which is a nice big group, and three of the others will also be going to Disney World the week after we leave. So, basically, it’s going to be awesome.
But do you know what’s even more awesome? The other night I got to go take pictures with all the characters. Please enjoy the merriment:
Pluto is totes my fave.
But today was an exciting day. Not only did I get a new roommate (Bye Mel! Have fun back in Australia, see you soon! ), Becca (aka Be-Caaaaaaaaw), but I got to do Wave Goodbye, which is where we get to wave goodbye (go figure) to all of our guests that are disembarking. The best part of Wave Goodbye is that you get to wear a giant Mickey hand as you wave. Alas, it seems that this week Captain Hook had stolen all the Mickey Hands to add to his hook decoration collection, leaving my hand naked and exposed to the thousands of guests that passed through the gangway. But it’s nice being able to see some of our kids one last time before they leave – you get lots of hugs. Then, after waving goodbye for almost three hours, it was then time to turn around, walk into the terminal, and start welcoming all of our new guests for the week. In less than an hour, we went from “Goodbye”, “Have a safe trip home, and “See you real soon” to “Hello” and “Welcome aboard.” Craziness.
I also got to have dinner in another one of the restaurants tonight – Animator’s Palate. This restaurant is all about…you guess it, Animation! Later in the week there’s an animation show, where the guests get to draw their own characters, which then get inserted into a movie montage, where they dance along with other Disney characters. It’s pretty cool to see your own creation up on a giant screen waltzing with Mickey Mouse. But tonight Crush came to visit. Crush, the surfer dude turtle from Finding Nemo floats around the room by way of the television screens, talking to and playing with guests. It was really a lot of fun, and my tummy is still super duper happy from all the deliciousness.
On one last note, we have a crew sale for the merchandise shops coming up during the next week or something, so if you have any gift requests (watches, shirts, Christmas ornaments, little girl princess dresses…), hit me up.
Toodles till Later.
