We had to take these ferry boats to the island, as the cruise ship could not get close enough due to shallower waters

Now to another little part of the island where they have this church

 

Looks like a fun place for a party

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This looks like a statue, but it is really a man dressed up and he scares you when you walk by because you don't expect him to move, much of the theme is Pirates

 

 

 

Pirate Night on the Disney Fantasy, fun, fun, fun

 

 

 

Ronaldo, our server dressed in his pirate finest

 

 

 

 

 

Napkins are boats, also notice the butter knife is shaped like a paintbrush, the name of this restaurant was the Animators Palate, Disney really gives a lot of attention to detail

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every night we had crayons at the table, washable crayons, you can draw on the crisp white tablecloths in any restaurant

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They even had things to do for the babies, this is the Diaper Dash Race

Daring seagull stole this bag of BBQ chips from someone and proceeded to open the bag with his beak and eat the chips, it was quite a sight

 

 

 

 

A view of our ship from the island

 

 

 

 

 

Most art on the wall was animated. You walk by and a short animation was played

Everett and Pam did 3 games of Detective Agency and searched for clues over the entire ship to solve the mystery

 

It's that Mickey Ice Cream bar for dessert again
