Cruisin into Spring Training-VWL & 4 Nt Dream 3/22-28/13 COMPLETE! 8/11

Or...what I affectionately call the "Mommy and Me, Cruisin' the High Seas" trip- DS13 is not really feelin the love for that title, though, so we'll humor him. But we all know what it's REALLY called! So here begins another TR- welcome back if you've been reading along on my other ones, and welcome first timers too! I'm Ellen, mother of 3 boys, Sean (18), Tyler (15) and Timmy (13- although he turns 14 tomorrow!), and wife of nearly 27 years to my handsome Pods. But this trip is just about 2 of our characters, Moi and my youngest, Tim. My husband is a CPA, so was busy, busy, CRAZY busy with tax season, while Sean (who attends a school out of district for Autism) was in school and Tyler was committed to playing baseball at the High school all week. This is what my Tim will be doing next year for Spring Break, he'll be at the High School and playing baseball. With only one more Spring Break to take, I frantically planned- we actually started out going to an all-inclusive with friends in Mexico, which was then changed to a cruise on RCCL Explorer of the Seas out of Bayonne, NJ..... BUT....that didn't quite work out, so I ended up booking the 4 night Dream cruise, because while Tim was happy to go back on Explorer with friends, he was NOT willing to go again without them (he thought the ship was boring when we sailed 2 years ago and the counselors stunk)- DCL was the only option- he was very comfortable taking any Disney cruise alone with just Mom. I was able to use my DVC points for 2 nights at VWL- our last WDW DVC to stay at- and after freaking out over airfare, found round trip from NJ at just under $1000 for the two of us- which STINKS, but is expected when you travel the week of Passover and Easter. Anyway.....let's get the show on the road....back with our first day in just a minute!
