A Little Disney Magic

Welcome to my pre-trip/trip report!

This is my first report on DISboards and I am very excited to be a part of this awesome community!

Cast of Characters:
Amanda (me)
Scott (DH2b...will be DH on 11/11/11)

We are complete Disney-a-holics! We have just about every Disney movie on VHS and DVD and we are slowly building our Blu-Ray collection I have been to WDW 3 times and DL 5 times (which can be found in my signature). My DH-2b has been to WDW once (with me in 05) and Disneyland twice (with me in 06 and 07). Neither of us have ever been on a DCL cruise...actually, we have never been on ANY cruise

We are currently planning our Disney Cinderella Themed Wedding which will take place on November 11, 2011 aka 11/11/11. No, it will not be at a Disney park but it will be magical nonetheless! For our honeymoon, we will be taking what Disney calls a Land and Sea Vacation.

On November 25, we will drive from our home in Louisville, KY to Cocoa Beach, FL to stay at a little hotel on the beach the night before our cruise on the Disney Magic! Those of you realizing the date as the day after Thanksgiving...yes, I am sacrificing my Black Friday shopping for our honeymoon But I personally think it is a fair trade-off. We are driving because it is SO much cheaper! The money we are saving from not flying is actually paying for our "land" part of our honeymoon. I love to fly, but sacrificing flying for a trip to WDW is totally worth it

We will be setting sail on the Disney Magic on November 26! Because we are newbies to DCL, we cannot book anything until September 12...75 days before the cruise But we do have plans for the cruise, including participating in our cruise group's FE!!

Our itinerary is as follows:
November 26: Port Canaveral, Florida
November 27: Key West, Florida
November 28: At Sea
November 29: Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
November 30: Cozumel, Mexico
December 01: At Sea
December 02: Castaway Cay
December 03: Port Canaveral, Florida

We have decided to do one shore excursion per port:
Presidents, Pirates, and Pioneers at Key West
Seven Mile Beach Break in the Grand Cayman
Cozumel Highlights and Maya Ruins in Cozumel
Parasailing in Castaway Cay

Once we deboard the cruise on December 3rd, our honeymoon is not over yet! We will drive from Cocoa Beach (after we get our car back LOL) to Orlando and stay at the All-Star Movies for 6 days/5 nights to continue our honeymoon with 5-day park hoppers to WDW!!! When we leave the magic of Orlando, we will drive home, stopping in Atlanta to visit the World of Coke Museum. My DH-2b is a Coke-a-holic We have several plastic totes filled with memorabilia!

Back to the wedding planning and present day...One very exciting perk that Disney has created for their honeymooners is the Disney Honeymoon Registry! As soon as the honeymoon was booked, I signed up for it. Here is the link if you would like to see what we have selected http://honeymoonregistry.disney.go.c...-2621C6B63F53}

Well, that is all I can think of for now I will continue as more excitement comes along
