Mickey + NYC = MAGIC - June 2, 2012 8-night - FINAL 2/23

We are back from another wonderful cruise on the Magic. This time out of New York City on the 8-night NYC-Bahamas cruise.

This was our second trip on the Magic, the first being March 26, 2011 Eastern Caribbean.

Who we are:
Kristi: I love everything Disney and love to plan our trips!

Steve: My wonderful husband who works very hard to allow us to take these amazing vacations .

Matt: Our first-born who is 11. We found out on this cruise that the word "Tween" truly fits this age bracket (more to come on this later).

Shawn: Our little man who is 8. He couldn't wait to get back to the Lab.

The planning
On the Magic in 2011 we booked a "dummy" cruise to get the great benefits. After we were home for a week or so they came out with the NYC trips. How great would it be to be able to drive to a Disney cruise and not have to worry about how heavy our luggage is. We live in the Cleveland, OH area, so making the 6.5 hour trip would be easy.

I booked the July 15th 5-night cruise to Canada and we were very excited. After a few weeks though, the 8-night trip that included a day at the parks, kept calling my name. We had not had a trip to the parks since February 2010 and I needed a park fix. Not only would this trip include that but we would also have 4 at-sea days. On our Eastern trip, I loved the at-sea days.

We decided to change the 5-night to the June 2nd cruise! Our boys last day of school would be May 24th, so we would have no books to bring!!!

Up next: Where to stay, when to leave?? The planning begins!
