The fireworks cruise looks like such a fun thing to do

Have you ever taken an Illuminations Cruise Karin?

What a fun cruise. I always forget how many different things Disney has to offer that I have yet to try.

Ah, Ann, we loved driving you back to your resort .... gave us more time to spend with you!

I was so happy the photos of all of us turned out good. I have one of them in a frame on my photowall.

And thank you for your birthday wishes.

May I ask how/where you booked that cruise and how much it was? Although we are doing the Keys to the Kingdom Tour, I really want to do something extra for Mark for our 30th anniversary.
It was the most wonderful time spent with friends.

As for the Wishes cruise .... you can book it by dialling (407) WDW-Play 180 days in advance.
There are two Pontoon boats to choose from. The smaller one is for 8 people and does not offer sound and is about 300$. The larger one, the one we had is for 10 people and has sound. It's about 350$.
It was an awesome experience! We are repeating it on our first full day back at WDW. Jeff and his family will join us as will Michelle and her family again.

Lovely pictures of the fireworks cruise, but I bet it was too cold for me.
Thank you, Doris!
You are right, vacation time will be here again soon. Less than three months until we leave for the US again.

The fireworks cruise was so much fun. It was cool, not really cold and if I remember correctly they even had blankets on board.

Can I just tell you how absolutely fantastic that cruise looks. How wonderful that you were able to plan that. What a fun group and what fantastic views. I hope I have the occasion to do that cruise someday. It looks simply amazing!
Happy belated birthday, Mary Ellen! And a very happy birthday to your oldest son as well.

It was a wonderful cruise and such a great experience. I highly recommend it. It really is special.
And it was extra special since we were able to share it with friends.

I'm glad your "mini cruise" turned out so special. You are so sweet to arrange that for everyone - I know it meant a lot to them!
Thank you, Tammie!
I am so honoured that you stick with me and my ever lasting TRs. Ana and Matija should be on their last contract with Disney. They want to open their own place in Croatia. Can't wait for them to make final plans.

I think we all enjoyed that fireworks cruise. It was so neat to see them all and enjoy the fireworks together.

The fireworks cruise really was wonderful. So much fun and so exciting to see the fireworks from the water!
We have not taken an Illuminations cruise yet, but I am toying with the idea.

It was really great, Jen. I highly recommend trying it. Might be something you might consider for your next family trip!

Half term vacation 2013, Feb 16 - Feb 24

Day 7, February 22




Who needs plans, we go with the flow! - part 1

Despite the late night the day before we were up around 7am and getting ready. We threw around the idea of having breakfast at The Wave, but there were so many yummy things in our fridge that we just ate some of it for breakfast. Around 9am we started to get on our walk over to the Magic Kingdom.







We arrived just when a ferry and the Monorail arrived and we hotfooted it to security, so we at least were at the head of the line. They had different lines for the new ticket media and even though we had our APs we were told to go to the new turnstiles. There was a cast member scanning our tickets and in we went. Main Street looked pretty packed but that was no surprise since the park had just opened.









We walked through the Emporium and up to the Casey’s. From there we went towards Adventureland and past the Crystal Palace. We stopped and took some photos





when a cast member approached us and asked us if we had a reservation. Nope, sorry. We walked over the bridge and then turned into Adventureland. Maybe we can try the Jungle cruise.
No, 20 minute wait already, same for Pirates, so we walked back to Liberty Square and from there to Peter Pan, to get a FastPass. The park started to get crowded by then and we were on a mission to get some more photos of the New Fantasyland, so we walked towards the area







and saw a line of already 60 minutes for Storytime with Belle.









No chance that we would get in this line. Next stop was the Little Mermaid ride and to our huge surprise it only had a 15 minute wait.

To be continued ...........

60 minutes for Belle? That's crazy.

I love the walkway from the contemporary to the MK. That is just the best!!!!!

Too bad the lines were long for JC and Pirates!

What a great start to your day... the walk from the contemporary to MK!

I am sorry the lines were so icky. I know we didn't go nearly as many rides last trip, just cause lines were so long.

Love the pics of the new fantasyland. The mine ride looks to really be coming along! I can't wait!!!

Fun start to the day.

We've yet to see the Storytime with Belle and probably won't...no way I can get Mark to wait in line for that.
