We went down to the atrium right in time to get a picture with Pirate Mickey!
We checked the Navigator and noticed it was almost time for all the pirate characters to come out, so we hung around! We basically went up and down the stairs and didn't have to wait in line for any of them! Perfect timing!
|Captain Hook and Mr. Smee!|
|A few pirate poses in between...|
|I missed the picture, but Minnie and Emma twirled before they took this picture. So sweet!|
|And another pose!|
|He told her she was "Cap'n Emma" because she had a captain hat on!|
|Stitch stole Emma's hat, and she cackled!|
Next up was the Pirate dinner at Animator's Palate. I had heard bad reviews about this menu, but I ended up really liking it!
|My app- pot stickers. Delicious.|
|Clinton's app- crab cake. He really like it. Apparently, he had already had a bite before this picture! Ha!|
|Nesha made Em another ketchup Mickey (I had missed the other night's!)|
|My entree- braised shortribs. Didn't care much for potatoes underneath, but the meat was great!|
|Clinton's entree- steak of some sort. He said it as very good.|
|My dessert- floating islands with tropical fruit. I really liked the sauce and fruit, but the meringues were too sweet for me.|
|Clinton's dessert- I think was cheesecake.|
We went back to the room for a bit after supper and we had a silly little monkey waiting for us.
Clinton and I went up and watched the pre-party festivities on the top deck. Also, we wanted to stake out a good spot!
Clinton went down to drag Em out of the kids club before the pirate party. She literally hated to leave every time, and if we didn't have something better to go to, it was a fight! She did come out for the party, though!
I thought it was going to be more of a show, but it was more like a dance party. We weren't in a good spot to dance, so we just watched.
|Someone was beginning to feel the effects of a very full day...|
|then Mickey, came out of nowhere to save the day from the pirates!|
|Perked her up a bit.|
|Then fireworks over the water! Amazing! Though I couldn't get a good picture.|
|Mickey banished the pesky pirates, and the party continued.|
