This year has been the year of firsts for me with Disney. It’s my first year being here for the Halloween Season ( Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party was AWESOME!!). It’s my first year being here for the Food and Wine Festival (i.e- that time I tried snails on purpose). And it will be my first year being in the parks for the Holiday season. But my most exciting first this year is….MY VERY FIRST DISNEY CRUISE!!! That’s right guys I’ll be cruise with the mouse himself in December! To say I’m excited is pretty much the understatement of the year, but I have to say I’m a little bit nervous because I have no idea what to expect. I’ll be traveling with two of my closest friends that have cruised with the mouse before so I’m very happy they’ll know what they are doing, but still I’m a wee bit nervous of what a Disney cruise entails.
From my research I know I’ll be spending a fair amount of time on the ship itself—I’ll be traveling on The Disney Dream which looks absolutely amazing! I’ve been reading up on the dining options and I think I’m most excited about the Animator’s Palate. I’ve been checking out videos of the Aquaduck because I’m the biggest chicken ever when it comes to water slides but I’m determined to try it out! And of course I’ve got my blank vinyalmation all set for character autographs! Since it will be a Holiday cruise there are special offerings just for Christmas but one thing I’m very excited about participating is Fish Extenders! Essentially it’s secret santa with a group of cabins through your cruise. I’ve been steady working on my gifts and bar packaging I’m almost done making them. If you look on pinterest you’ll find a host of fun ideas for gifts and even the doorhangers to collect them in!
I have no clue how I’m going to package my gifts just yet, but I’ll figure it out eventually. For now I’m making sure I’m swimsuit ready and reading up on seasickness remedies just in case. When we get a little closer to sailing time I’ll have even more fun things to tell you about, but that’s all for now. Any other Disney Cruisers here? Help me out with some tips for an awesome time! I’d love to hear! 😀
