Hi Kara!

I've been lurking, but wanted to thank you for a great trip report! We're taking the same cruise next month and will visit the Blue B* Bar in your honor! Thanks for telling us about it!

Our Magical Disney Cruise - VIDEO

The "Wake up Ally" video was hilarious! I am sure she was just voicing how everyone felt that morning!

And the picture started the tears in my eyes and I was crying through the entire video! Wonderful report, wonderful video! Thank you for sharing it all!

I haven't watched this yet (but will!), just curious on how you get YouTube to let you upload long videos? It won't let me upload anything more than 10 minutes!

I'll make my way over to your PTR too. So you are booked for DCL again and RCI?

Um, I'm a McSparkleson!!!! Duhhhhhh!

Actually, I have no idea, but my account has a banner at the top saying, "you are now allowed to upload videos longer than 15 minutes." Originally I made the movie, then when I went to put on youtube it said the movie had to be less than 15 minutes. So I edited.... a lot. Finally got it under 15. I'm guessing either I've had enough views or enough uploads (cause I uploaded all those little blips too).

Either that or it's because I'm a McSparkleson. And I'm..... too sexy for youtube......

That wake up video was so sad. I don't know who sounded sadder, you or her?
I'm glad you have some future trips in the works though!

My DD has the same chesire cat shirt the Tori was wearing too!

Thank you so much for taking the time to do such an informative and completely entertaining trip report!

We will be taking our very first cruise on the Magic in April next year (eastern) so i have read thru your report eagerly, soaking up any and all info!

I also have an only child, and was almost crying tears of joy, when I saw that Ally had made such a good friend. I am already praying my son finds just one friend...it would be so wonderful!

Thanks again! You have a beautiful family. Absolutely beautiful!

I am so sad your TR is over- and so happy you thought it was the BEST family vacation you have ever had. Because now I can say....

Told ya so!! Told ya so! Told ya told ya told ya told ya TOLD ya so!!

Poor Ally- but lucky Ally because now her Mama is OBSESSED and someday soon she's gonna forget what a vacation on land was ever like, you are going to take her on so many fabulous cruises!!

And in May...we are NOT going to the WORST show on the last night! Joan will flood the freakin ship if we take her in there!!

Also....maybe we should plan on rebooking while we're on the ship for a future DISmom cruise in a couple of years....Dummy date and then book it when the 2014 ones are released.....I'll be doing a dummy anyway, I want to sail out of NYC in 2014- I'm hoping they alternate the Magic between Europe & NYC in summers from now on.....

I really enjoyed your TR, it was great fun! We are on this cruise over Thanksgiving this year, our first 7 day with kids!! I love DCL, and I agree, it is just as sad going home!!! I hate eating in the restaurants b/c no one seems to want to be there! Do you know if they allow you to do breakfast at the buffet, or just the sit down? I found eating at the buffet on our Dream cruises made cutting the strings a little easier...

Just WONDERing if the MAGIC can continue for a little longer...

We called it the "love connection." When we took Ally the first full day to the Oceaneers Lab to make flubber, Jeff and I hit the adult pool and he just kept saying, "please let there be a love connection, please let there be a love connection." And she hit it off! Also, the FE thread that we were on helped a lot. A couple of us PM'd each other our email addresses and our kids were able to email before the cruise. So Ally was looking for Tori at the first DISmeet on board. Jeff has admitted that it was a good thing, even though he stayed away from the DISmeet.

I didn't think we could do Topsiders? But I don't think that there is ANYTHING that could have taken away the pain. Medication maybe?

You can do the buffet - we did it in April. They just don't tell you about it, because they want the "eat quick, now get out" touch from the servers, and the buffet is a little less controlled - also a little less room for bags.

Kara - thanks for letting me live vicariously through you! I had a blast following along. I love the last sad pic of Ally - it truly does say it all.

I'm definitely stopping at the bar in yours & ellens honor to get me some guavaberry rum!
