    Hello Richard!

    Thank you for all of the personal sacrifices you've made for our great country.  It's an absolute pleasure to help you with your much deserved family time.

    Your princess is 3.  She's going to LOVE the Oceaneer Club and Lab.  The clubs are amazing with everything there is to see and do.  My kids would literally BEG us to leave them at the club until closing (midnight-1:00am).  We'd find them partying all over the ship.  Whether it was trying to figure out who stole Tinkerbell's pixie dust, or a dance party on deck, they wanted all of it.  Of course, every activity is closely supervised by the youth counselors.  I'm telling you this is because I don't want you to feel guilty about having your time with your wife.

    Your rotational dining meals are scheduled for you.  Book a romantic dinner at Palo on any night that you can grab it.  It's my favorite restaurant!  Romantic too.  Take your daughter to the pool deck before your reservation, have her eat there, and then drop her off at her club.  You and your wife will have the rest of the evening to enjoy Palo and the great nightlife onboard.  Even when you do dine with your daughter, you can still drop her off after dinner and enjoy the clubs.  Goodness!  Don't forget to take her on a nighttime stroll on the's gorgeous (ok, and romantic)!

    I wish I had more space to write Richard!  I could continue with advice for days!  Please let me know if you need any help with anything else.  I hope you have a truly magical vacation with your girls.  You all have earned it!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
