Our Wonderful "Pixar" Pacific Coast Cruise, October 7-14, 2012 ~ Completed! ~ w/ pics

Weve been home a week now since we got off of the Wonder in Los Angeles and bid it Aloha as it prepared for its Hawaiian Cruise. After doing a weeks worth of laundry and trying to get over a chest cold that started onboard, Im now ready to share with you our Wonderful Pixar Pacific Cruise!

Backstory:

Back in May of 2011, our neighbors went on a DCL Alaskan cruise. They had a wonderful time and immediately signed up for the Pacific Coast cruise over our fall break in 2012. As soon as they told us, I knew that this was an opportunity too good to pass up: another cruise with our dear friends. I immediately looked into the cruise and found, to my delight, that our regular stateroom was still available for the October 7th sailing of the Wonder out of Los Angeles. I took that as a sign and talked my reluctant DH into putting a deposit down on the cruise, convincing him that we could always cancel (like that was ever a real possibility!) Thus, our third Disney cruise was on the books!

In the meantime, our neighbors had recruited their parents and a cousin to also come with us. Shortly thereafter, they also invited a former caregiver to come along as a reward for her service over the years. Before we knew it, we had a nice little group of 10 people driving over to California to join our cruise.

We also found out that our cruise were going to be one of four special Pixar cruises with special opportunities to meet Pixar characters onboard and meet Pixar executives. At this point, it was just icing on the cake.

Since we were leaving out of LA, we decided to drive, it was, after all, only a few miles further than our drive to Disneyland. We also made reservations for a park and cruise package at the Crowne Plaza San Pedro hotel.

Finally, after almost a year and half of waiting, our DD started 7th grade and it was her fall break before we knew it. California, here we come!

Cast of Characters:

ME: Fan of everything Disney and avid travel planner.
DH: My wonderful husband who indulges all of my Disney dreams.
DD: Our 12 year old daughter who has been begging to go on another cruise for 3 years.
DNeighbors: Our neighbors whom we share an affinity for Disney with and travel often.
DParents: LE and DE: Our neighbors parents, 1st time Disney cruisers.
DCousin C: LEs cousin from Georgia. 1st Disney cruise.
DFriend L: Our neighbors daughter's caregiver, recently moved to North Carolina with her Fiancť and getting married in March. 1st Disney cruise.
