Watch Out DCL...oopsiDAISY is Having a Quackattack on the High Seas!!!

Out with the old and in with the new for this January 2014! I have just wrapped up my 2013 trip report, so now it is time to start my 2014 pre-trip report! For those who are new to the oopsiDAISY report experience ! To get to know our family better, feel free to click on the links in my signature. Here is a very squinty sneak peek of the oopsiFAMILY:

This year the oopsiFAMILY is embarking on a brand new adventure…a Disney Cruise!!! This whole thing is brand new for us. We have never been on a cruise before AT. ALL. To say that we are excited would be a huge understatement.

Another new facet of the adventure is that we will be joined by IRL friends, who also happen to be Disers…the Quackattack family! This is obviously where I got the report title from, clever, huh? The Quackattacks are fellow Disney nuts, and have been on multiple Disney cruises. They will be an invaluable resource for us as we plan for this adventure. Quackattack will be tag-teaming this PTR with me, so expect to hear from her from time to time as well. Here is a sneak peak of Quackattack and her family:

Her son is photobombing the otherwise lovely picture of his parents.

Cruise details so far are as follows…

Cruise Dates: October 4-11, 2014
Cruising Vessel: Disney Fantasy
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Ports of Call: St. Marteen/St. John, St. Thomas, Castaway Cay

It’s going to be a great adventure, and we hope you will join us as we plan for it. For anyone who has followed previous oopsi-reports you already know this; but to those who are new to us…..get ready, because oopsi-reports always have thrills and chills, ups and downs, lots of silliness, and some really fun Disney movie nights sprinkled in, too. Are you ready? Hang on because:

oopsiDAISY is having a Quackattack on the High Seas!!!!

Meet the oopsiFAMILY

Would you like to meet the oopsiFAMILY?

First there is me, oopsiDAISY. I am Connie, and I am a fourtysomething year old Disney fan. I work as an administrative assistant for a small, private university right here in our hometown. I enjoy reading, planning and hosting themed parties and movie nights, all things DISNEY, and just hanging out with my wonderful family.

Next is the oopsiHUBBY, Brian. Brian is an almostfourty year old Star Wars fan. He works as an aircraft maintenance planner. He enjoys Star Wars, playing his X-box, and relaxing at home. He is also a part time student. Brian is working hard to complete his Business degree through the online program offered by the university that employs me. He is just a year and a half away from completion, and will have to spend part of his time on the cruise doing schoolwork.

Next in the oopsi-line-up is:

Jillian is fourteen years old, and a daddy’s girl all the way. Like her daddy, she is a sci-fi fan. She has a wicked sense of humor as well. She loves to bake, and do creative things with cupcakes. Cake Boss is high on her list of faves, but like the rest of us…Disney is TOPS for Jillian.

Next we have:

Charity is our almost twelve year old girly-girl. She loves to play around with fashion, and LOVES jewelry, accessories of all kinds, and SHOES, lots of SHOES. She is as her name, very loving. She is a social butterfly who befriends all she meets. She is the source of lots of laughter and silliness in our family.

And the caboose to the oopsiFAMILY is:

Gabriel is our seven year old BOY, ALL BOY! He is a creative genius. His one liners keep us in stitches. He must have a costume for every occasion, every movie, and every TV show he watches. He could entertain himself for HOURS, but we are so glad he entertains us as well!

Expect a post from Quackattack later on with introductions to her family!

Yay! So excited to hear all about your cruise plans! I have been on many cruises, but never a Disney one. I think you are going to be in trouble....you are NEVER going to be able to take a "regular cruise" after this Just like theme parks, Disney does it right and nothing will ever measure up again. So excited for you and the oopsiFAMILY!

I cannot wait to compare notes with you! Please pipe in and give advice, wisdom, tips ANYTIME! And I do hope you will share pictures from time to time as well.
