MouseFest 2004 Scrapbook!
December 5 - December 13, 2004


Hundreds of Disney Fans from Around the World
Gathered at WDW for MouseFest 2004

 

WEDNESDAY, December 8, 2004

Our final full day on the Wonder could not have been more perfect -- clear blue skies, warm temperatures, a boatload of activities, and, after three-plus days cruising together, lots of friends to share in the Disney Magic!

Official MouseFest activities of the day began with breakfast at Parrot Cay, hosted by Dave and Jennifer Marx and Deb Wills.

Carol Ray shares: "We went to Parrot Cay for a MouseFest breakfast meet - Bob and I sat across from Dave Marx and had a nice chat with everyone at the table. At one point, Pluto came by to visit. We decided that on future cruises we'd come here for breakfast, as the buffet was much more extensive than Beach Blanket Buffet. More great food!!"

Some folks spent the day poolside, others watched first-run movies and a few were online checking email. The kids' club prepared for the graduation and Steve Barrett lead a Hidden Mickey Hunt. Steve reported they found a total of 48 hidden Mickeys, including some that were new even to Steve.

"Steve led us around the ship, pointing out several hidden Mickeys, some of which I'd already noticed, and some of which I hadn't. We also pointed out a few that Steve had overlooked. At the end of the hunt, there was a drawing.....You guessed it! I won a Christmas ornament signed by Captain Henry (our ship's Captain)." (Carol Ray)

On the last evening of the cruise we again gathered in WaveBands for the MouseEarVacations.com Farewell Party. The party started with a tribute of photos of MouseFest 2004, prepared by Deb Wills. If you were on the cruise chances are your pictures were in the display. There were fruity Bahama Mamas, red and white wine, non-alcoholic fruity drinks and lots of food. Then it was raffle time, prizes from PassPorter, AllEarsNet.com, and MouseEarsVacations.com were given away by the truckload, and with the last prize being a beautiful Disney Snow Globe won by Curt Smith.

The evening found many folks dining at Palo -- in fact, at one point it appeared the dining area was full of MouseFest cruisers.
