Dream a Little Dream With Me - 4/3 Final two posts!!!! Hope to see you real soon!
 
This is a very exciting TR for me to write :goodvibes

I just got off the Disney Dream! :yay: :yay: - a cruise that we booked last February when we were on the Wonder taking a short cruise, just DH and I. I hadn’t really been watching the time tick away, but after Christmas it really hit home that we were going to be onboard the new ship in a few short months! :cloud9:

Let me say I have totally enjoyed the past DCL adventures we have had, but this one was AMAZING! We are not avid cruisers, in fact we have never taken our kids!, but I think this last cruise, and the next few we now have planned, is the beginning of a “beautiful friend SHIP…” Yeah, yeah, sorry for the corny joke! Still am giddy after all the fun we had! :laughing:

SO… let the fun begin! First, the lowdown and the trip details:

Feb 19th Arrive at MCO, one day car rental, and an overnight at BLT – MK view!

Feb 20th Check out of BLT, and head down to Port Canaveral for our adventure aboard the Disney Dream!

Feb 20th – 24th A four night cruise!!! Nassau, Castaway Cay and 2 day/nights at sea.

Feb 24th return home, rested, and tan… :laughing:

SO, I am Happy Dog on the DIS, just by way of introductions! For those of you who don’t know me, I am a mom of two boys, and my DH is a great guy, who actually enjoys himself at Disney – he is not a “head over heels no where BUT Disney” kind of guy, but he appreciates the amazing attention to detail, the entertainment value, the showmanship involved, and he enjoys eating… :laughing: He also recognizes that our kids LOVE going. So it has become a great family place for us. We are fortunate enough to vacation many other places, too, so we have been able to find balance. He also loves a good deal when it comes to Disney, and we have had our share of luck that way, these February cruises included!

Here is DH at Castaway Cay… You will see lots of him in this TR, but less of me, so here I am, on embarkation day!, sitting in the chair of all chairs…. Cinderella’s!!!!

This mosaic is a replica of those in Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom…there are two onboard. I have photos of both (the other is on the opposite side of the ship’s lobby which has a blue chair for the prince I guess!)

DH and I justified this cruise as our “scouting” mission… :magnify: ... last year we had booked TWO cruises, this one we just returned from, AND a family cruise in June, the 5 night cruise with two stops at Castaway Cay! Since we would be on the Dream, we wanted to check things out ahead of time. If you want to follow our Summer plans, which is 5 nights on the Dream and 5 nights at Disney's Vero Beach, see the link below in my signature, or click, HERE.

I have tons of photos, both from our pre-cruise fun and the ship. I am setting up my TR by the day, and will focus on some of the highlights and features of the ship that I think my fellow DISer pals would want to know…
I will also give you a list of “tips” that I came up with, just observing others, and my own recommendations based on our experience this time. :thumbsup2

Without a doubt, I love Disney, and Disney makes it really easy to love Disney Cruise Line!!!! :lovestruc

Hope you will join me! :wave2:
