We did a Wishes cruise in December and loved it, reading about the problem people had with the smoke on the Illuminations cruise is what pushed me over the edge in deciding to do the Wishes one instead.
Yup. My DH is a prince!
I think I would recommend Wishes instead of Illuminations now. I wasn't sure if I wanted to pay the extra money for a Wishes cruise with MUSIC and knew I didn't want to do a Wishes cruise without music; which is why I went for the Illuminations one instead. Oh well....maybe there may be a next time

What a great way to spend your Birthday! And what a super-nice touch with the Birthday Banner and balloons...that was great that Disney threw that in there for you!

How great as well that your husband and son surprised you with that gorgeous cake! You certainly do have 2 princes in your family!

The photos look great from the cruise...too bad about the smoke. Although I guess you never know from nite to nite which way the wind will blow.

Seeing the fireworks from the boat must have been truly special!

I haven't been commenting, but I have been reading along the whole way. The Illuminations Cruise sounds neat, but I'm the only one who really likes it, not going to happen!

I've been enjoying the report!

Thanks Trish. Yes, all the extended family really enjoyed the fireworks from the cruise. We couldn't do anything about the smoke but it was a perfect ending to the WDW trip!

I've been meaning to ask...
Is your DH a Disney Nut? Or just enjoys it...
Have you been gradually increasing his Disney experiences? Or were you both Disney fans when you met?

I just wonder sometimes....lol....
So many people seem to have a 'reluctant' spouse

It is clear the DS is born and bred Disney...well done with the brain washing

DH is a Disney Fan. He was a fan when we met and had even been to WDW way before me. He's not completely nutty; but he enjoys the rides.
He's a real prince....he knows that DS and I love Disney (yes, I made sure it was genetically coded into him; no need for brain washing ); so he's happy if we're happy.

To be perfectly honest, we're both outdoor FREAKS and just love the National Parks. Unfortunately for us, DS just hasn't picked up that gene (yet). So, we normally try to mix the two things for our holidays....and will be balancing things more in favour of more time at National Parks next time.

My WDW Photopass pictures - July 15

Thanks to information gathered from the DisBoard, I had decided to take up the Photopass CD pre-order special in April. I'm so glad I did and once again....DisBoard information comes through trumps again.

We didn't actively seek out Photopass Photographers but every time we came across one, we would stop and get our photos taken. We didn't end up with a heap of photos...but there were still more than 250 shots.

By the time I finished editing, I ended up with close on 350 photos.

You'll be pleased to know that I don't plan on putting EVERY ONE of the 350 photos up; just a small selection over the next couple of posts, as I load them up into photobucket...without commentary.

I love that border that you put on the pic with Baloo and King Louie, I don't think I've seen that one before - it's very cute!

It was in Animal Kingdom. When you walk from Africa to Asia, there's an area off the side (before the Flights of Wonder) and Baloo and Louie were there.

Absolutely. I think this is the first trip we've had where we have SOOOO many pictures of the 3 of us together. Usually it's only 2 out of the 3.
