Haunting the Magic Oct 29, 2011 (Western) The Pre-Scare Report
So the more and more I think about my October cruise the more and more I feel like I need to start my Pre-Trip Report…yes I know its not even close and to the halfway mark but I have to release some of this cruise planning somewhere!
Some of you or maybe a few of you, have read both my PTR & TR for my Dec 2010 4day Cruise on the Wonder. But let me give you little background info..
I first came on the disboards to gather information for my trip to WDW back in 2009..I had went to Disney twice and felt like I wasn’t getting the most out of my visits. So I started my research, and so began my DIS-OBSESSION. I am so hooked on this forum, that I cannot go a day without checking the site. I love to read other peoples PTRs nd TRs so when I re-booked my first Disney Cruise for Dec 2010, I started my first ever PTR. I think writing a PTR helps you remain focused and sane when planning a trip (And it also is a good reference for when you can’t remember what the plan was!). So with me not going a day without thinking of both my cruises I have booked for this and next year, I have to commence the reporting.
The Boo-tiful Cast:
Me (34) Single mother of 2 fun & fantastic gorgeous little boys. Yes I do everything with my kids. I know that will not always be the case when they get older and become teenagers so I am taking advantage that they want to be with me all the time.
Miguelito (3)…I have made him a Disney lover and he still gets excited when we walk onto WDW property. His memory is expanding and he’s now remembering things I wouldn’t have imagined him to remember, like where’s Dinoland in AK. When asked where does he lives? He says Magic Kingdom. He still plays with Mickey Mouse toys, but he also is a fan of Spiderman and Iron Man (which is a plus since they are now owned by Disney).
Manuelito (1) ah my little man. He’s so determined to be like his brother that it almost feels like I have two 3yr olds. He loves the characters and he loves water. He loves to just be with his brother and I. He definitely loves Mickey Mouse. So I cannot wait to get him on the ship again so he can plan in the Splash Pad.
So a lot of folks think I’m crazy that I travel alone with two little ones and they wonder how I do it and they probably under their breaths think what a waste of money since they can’t “remember” the trips . I mean, I just do it because I love to travel and I plan for it. We don’t live a normal life and I accept that this is my family and its little, so I refuse to let the fact that one adult is not participating in my life restrict what I do for vacations or do whatever it is I think my boys will enjoy, even if its only for the moment, who cares if they can remember any of the trips..I barely remember the first time I went to Disney and I was 25yrs old…I just remember the excitement..ANYWHOOOO
I’ve always love going on vacations. And even more so I love cruising…and even better is that there’s Disney Cruising.
So this is my Ohana:
