Disney World & Cruises

It’s been over a year since I have been at Disney World and I am craving it! We went to Disneyland in May/June of this year, but it’s just not the same! We decided to remedy that.

We recently booked a pair of Disney cruises, a short one in January 2014 aboard the Disney Dream and a longer one in March, also aboard the Dream. In January we will fly down and board the ship the same day, but for March we decided to extend the vacation longer to be able to enjoy the parks. In March, we are staying on the Walt Disney World Resort, at Coronado Springs, and will be able to go to Magic Kingdom and Epcot. I’ve had a lot of fun planning this trip with selecting Magic Bands and making advanced dining reservations at Via Napoli and the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party. I have to wait until February to make FastPass selections and will try to get a FastPass lunch at the always booked Be Our Guest restaurant.

I think we’re going to get into cruising. My next booked cruise will likely be Alaska (ports of call) on a Disney ship. Following that I would love to start planning for a Panama Canal cruise. The Panama Canal cruise is 14 days so that would require a bit of planning and saving of vacation time, but it’s definitely high on my list of vacation plans, right behind Alaska.
