Dinner Time or Party Time?

We had second seating for dinner every night, so we didn't eat until 7:45.  There were 2 dining rooms, the Sensation and the Imagination.  We were seated in the Imagination at Table 300.  They told us this was the captain's table.  It was the largest table, able to seat 13 of us.
 This was Meagan's fruit plate she ordered as a "starter" one night.  So fancy!
 We had a different menu each night, but the items on the left-hand page were the same every day.  They were a little more like "every day" food.  The items that changed each day on the right side of the menu were a little more "exotic", like lobster or alligator.
 Nanna ordered cheese pizza all 5 nights!!  Our waiter had her figured out after the second night.  He'd just ask her, "Cheese pizza?"
 Each night the waiters did a little show for us and sang for us.  It was always a lot of fun.  It made us feel like we were going to a party every night.
 Erin was a brave girl.  She tried something new every night.  She tried escargot, frog legs, alligator, lobster...  I believe this picture is of Erin & Heather trying frog legs.  Looks like they're not too crazy about them!
 The girls posed for a picture with our waiters on the last night.  The tall one in the back is Fernando.  He is from the Philippines.  He was very quiet and business-like the first couple of nights, but then he seemed to come out of his shell.  He was so much fun!  The shorter man is Jhoni (Yes, that's spelled right.)  He was from Indonesia.  He knew all of our names by the end of the first evening.
 This was a vegetable pot pie my mom had one evening.  Isn't it beautiful?  She said it was delicious too.
 I think this was the evening Erin ordered alligator.  I don't think Heather was the least bit impressed!

We usually ate our breakfast and lunch in the Coconut Grove at the buffet or the grill or the Pizza Pirate.  Those girls ate pizza for breakfast, lunch, and snacks.  We all think Laura ate her weight in ice cream during the week too!  They couldn't keep the machines full with all the ice cream all the girls consumed!
