Our family:




me-Stacey, 39, an avid Disney fan. I have wonderful memories of gathering around the TV every Sunday night at 6pm and awaiting the Wonderful World of Walt Disney with my siblings and cousins. I could hardly wait to see Tinkerbell come across the screen and tap her magic wand! Took my first trip to WDW when I was 19. I was completeing my degree in nursing and working 3 jobs to save for my trip! I moved to Florida (from Canada) after graduating and lived there for 2 years. Lots of WDW trips then! Ended up moving home and marrying my high school sweetheart, Greg.

DH-41, Greg, he just goes along for the ride, never gets too excited. He is pretty great!

DS-13, Drew, knows everthing, sporty & smart.

DD- 9, Grace,the princess, ever helpful, and social

Our travel itinerary:
May 22- leave from Canada, drive to Bangor, Me
May 23- drive to Boston
May 24- drive to NY
May 25 (Day 1)- Sail away! Dreams do come true!
Day 2- at sea
Day 3- at sea
Day 4- Nassau, Blue Lagoon Dolphin Swim (me & DD, boys are not interested, what?!)
Day 5- Castaway Cay- Couples Cabana Massage, Palo!
Day 6- WDW! Heading to AK first for EE, Safari and then to MK for Space Mtn, Splash mtn, a dole whip, and Wishes! (and a lot in between!)
Day 7- at sea
Day 8- at sea, Palo brunch
Day 9- NY

I am beyond excited!

Can't wait to read your trip report. I wanted to book this cruise, but didn't want daughter to miss school, turns out since no snow days were used shes off the 25th, 28th, 29th & has a trip on the 1st. She would have only been missing 2 days. Think we might head out to the city & take a ride on the Circle Line to see you sail away.
Have a great trip!

The traffic into NYC was horrible! Sometimes I'm pretty glad to be a country girl! We made it to our hotel about 3 hrs after we anticipated! We have an awesome view of the NYC skyline. [IMG][/IMG]
Took the subway to Times Square.
[IMG][/IMG]Can't wait to set sail tomorrow!

We are here!! The Manhattan traffic was horrendous! The Magic was just coming into port as we were getting here at 11:45. Parking was easy,$280 for the 8 night stay. Our first glimpse of the ship :

The port has all the Disney touches... Music, decorations, and Mickey hands!

Check-in was very quick. We have boarding pass #9 with an anticipated boarding of 1 pm.
The port is a hive of excitement!

How exciting! What was your port arrival time? Just wanting to see if it seems to be tied to your boarding number.
