Woot! Another Trip Report

I read your first trip report when I first joined these boards awhile back. . I was touched by your love for your daughter and your enthusiasm. Having been on 6 Disney Cruises I know how wonderful they are and have enjoyed reading your story. Can't believe you just went. We went Aug 16th-23rd Back to Back. Glad you got to get onboard early....on the turnaround we had to go back through the terminal and then reboard. I know the CM you speak of and he got us on early also. It was sooo much fun roaming an empty ship. Can't wait to hear the rest....

I can't believe it's been over a year since we all were on the Wonder. I still can't believe we were at the Dolphins with you and Maddie and never met you! Thanks for writing another trip report; I'm curious to know what's different this year on the Wonder. We haven't been on another cruise, but we're thinking maybe 2009 when my 20 year old graduates from college. She may not want Disney, though since she'll be legal to do all that casino stuff! I'm hoping for Disney, though!

We did go back to Disney World this summer and discovered that no two trips are the same. What was super special last year wasn't so cool this year, and we had new special moments! I can't wait to read all about your trip!

Kelly, i am so glad to read another TR from you! I remember reading your last TR last year.. and we chatted b/c i am taking my (going to be)7 yr old dd on a DCL trip next year, and i was concerned taking her by myself.. and you totally showed me that it can be such a magical mother/daughter thing.. now i can't wait!!!
We are going on our first family DCL this year, and then next yr, just me and my dd are going (well, not totally alone, i will be with my inlaws.. but you know what i mean).
Thanks for writing such a great report so far, i just love reading about the great relationship that you and your dd clearly have with each other.. It is really touching. I already have tears reading your report,and we haven't even gotten past the boarding!! LOL Can't wait for more!!

I think that is so nice that it is just the two of you.......what fun it must be ! I have one question for you - I noticed you said you left your luggage outside the night before while staying at the hyatt. Do they handle the luggage from there to the ship? We were thinking about staying there next September and I was just wondering how that goes...........

Thanks and I can't wait to hear more !
Thanks BuckeyeGal!

Hi, i am not the OP here, but yes, from what i know, you put your luggage out in the hall, and DCL takes it and you don't see it til later when you are on the ship.. You just keep your day bag.HTH

I so want to take a cruise but no one will go with me. I get motion sickness and so do my parents. I am 30 this year and never gone. I am determined too.

Maddie is sooo adorable.
