Ok well over the next few days I'll post my travel web log, or tblog. or maybe just tlog (the 't' is silent). I took notes several days about our ports of call, especially the day we traveled through the Panama Canal. What an awesome day!! Here are a few tidbits about the trip for the both of you that read my blog. :o)

* Food!
* Special guests Joey Fatone from N'Sync and Alfonso Ribeiro from Fresh Prince of Bel Air!
* Guest speakers: (1) Retired Panama Canal Pilot Capt. Ken Puckett, (2) Disney World senior artist Don "Ducky" Williams, (3) author, Disney consultant, nerd, and former imagineer Jeff Kurtti and more!
* More Food!
* Magician Mike Super
* Did I mention food?
* Palo fine dining
* Lots (and lots) of crazy Hawaiian t-shirts!
* The Cove Cafe
* Even more food!
* Pictures to prove it!

As you can tell, I haven't eaten much in the past few days. :o)

I hope over the next several days to post some of my trip thoughts and share some pictures with you of my 5,700 mile voyage!

I'm excited to read your trip report as I'm taking the East Bound Panama Canal cruise on the Magic in August. I'm sure you had a great time and I'm ready to hear all about it. I found your blog posted on a site called It's a group of disney-cruise-aholics. LOL. I'm particularly interested because I'm a Kansas also (Wichita)!
