Magic Your Way to the Magic Kingdom...sounds like a good idea! COMPLETED

Hi to anyone that may follow along as I stumble through another trip report from Galveston.

Castmembers for our 8 night sailing are....

Jenny (47 and counting, but trying not to) & Scott (ridiculously younger but will be good for my retirement ) We are self-confessed WDW & DCL addicts who are always up for another adventure on the Magic (or any DCL ship) especially when it is sailing from our home port...


our friends who 1) have never sailed on Disney before, 2) have never taken their kids to WDW before and 3) were on the cruise to celebrate A's 40th birthday which had been a month earlier, although I think we can all agree she doesn't look a day over 39.

So! With lots of adventures awaiting us we busily got planning and before we knew it the time had flown by and it was time to go!

Our Itinerary was:

Thursday - Overnight in Galveston
Friday - Sail away on the Disney Magic
Saturday - At Sea
Sunday - At Sea
Monday - Castaway Cay
Tuesday - WDW
Wednesday - At Sea
Thursday - Key West
Friday - At Sea
Saturday - Disembark

Scott & I decided to take an extra day at the beginning of our trip as we both had a ton of stuff going on at work, and I knew there was no way I'd be able to get ready during the evenings prior to Friday. We started packing on Thursday morning while trying to juggle last minute work panics and finally got away from the house at about 1:30 pm after stuffing down a pizza that was delivered while all the packing chaos was going on.

The (world famous) Buccees was first stop for gas and a car wash..because no respectable girl can be seen pulling up to a cruise terminal in an vehicle that is no color other than DIRT!!

I took this photo just to drive Scott nuts with my picture taking but even he has now conceded that it's a pretty cool photo!

Coming up....our overnight stay at Harbor House hotel because Photobucket is acting up and I don't want to lose anything I've done so far. .
