Independence Working day Musical Phase Demonstrate in the Atrium

Mickey and friends complete a special stage exhibit for friends in the Atrium Lobby. This show lasts about 15 to 20 minutes, so not also lengthy. For a wonderful viewing spot, I advocate one particular deck earlier mentioned the atrium floor. On the Disney Desire, the Atrium is on Deck 3, so I went to Deck 4 (around Vista Cafe) to appreciate the demonstrate.

The display opened with the Cast of the Walt Disney Theatre performing The Star-Spangled Banner. Please notice, that I am not a skilled videographer. I shot these movies on my mobile cellular phone, with no stabilizing gear – quite sure my thumb can make an appearance in one particular of them. These have been taken for my possess recollections, and I am satisfied to share them in this article.

Fireworks at Sea

A single of the most thrilling occasions on any Disney Cruise Line getaway is going through fireworks in the center of the ocean. Since this was a 5-night time sailing on the Disney Aspiration, we had been lucky adequate to see fireworks two instances!

The Pirates in the Caribbean celebrations had been on a person of the Castaway Cay times, and the 4th of July festivities were on our last night time of the cruise.

There was a quick and lovely phase display wherever Mickey and Buddies all designed appearances. Then it was time for the fireworks at sea (component 2)!

Prepared for the show… and just like in the Atrium, I like to enjoy the exhibits from 1 deck up. In this situation, this intended finding a wonderful place on Deck 12, right higher than the pool deck phase.

What is a holiday break without the need of food items? Just like on standard evenings, you will dine in whichever restaurant locale is on your dining rotation. Company have their alternative to get from the regular menu offered in the dining place – due to the fact it was the very last evening of our cruise, it was the “See Ya Real Soon” menu – or you can select from the unique getaway menu. This a single was a modest menu, and I will be trustworthy, I tried out the Common Independence Platter and was considerably less than enthused. Probably it is for the reason that I grew up on the Southern staples of fried rooster and ribs geared up by grandmas and pit masters. I am really sure the “fried” hen was oven-fried. If you like a holiday break cookout, stick with the fare at Cookies on Castaway Cay, and just get from the frequent menu on the 4th of July.

I just can’t hold out to see what the Disney Desire has in retail store for her friends on this special holiday getaway. Have you at any time knowledgeable the 4th of July (or any holiday break) at sea? What was your most loved portion? The displays? The music? The figures in costume?
