I like not having a must do list on this trip but some part of me will say get off the ship if only to walk the pier and back!!! Haha also my goal for this trip is to bring carry ons only! I'm an over packer at heart so not sure if this is possible for me ���� never mind my last statement. I just got scared seeing it in print!!!
Did the DCL site let you check in at midnight...or was it later?

I am the same as you...weather may or may not be good, so what we do will depend on that. We may just walk to the duty free....or if the weather is decent we may venture further than that.

Too funny that you mentioned carry on only...I thought about it...but then realized there's no way.


ETA: Aren't you leaving this coming Saturday??? Have a MAGICAL time!! Look forward to hearing about it.

Well it was my plan to check in at midnight... I completely forgot and panicked that afternoon! Lol Next time I'm putting an alert on my phone!

Yes we leave on the 10th! 😜😝 I'm getting super excited since we'll have 5 first time DCL cruisers. They love WDW so I know we're gonna have a blast. It's been funny seeing my Sis get pirate outfits together ( she even made tops for her and my niece )) I look terrible in hats but we decorated mini pirate hats that we got at Target. I'm getting crazier the older I get... So I'm having a drink or two and wearing that darn hat!!!

Thanks again for your trip report!! Before my Mom's passing she would travel with us and it was a wonderful reminder of those times together.😊

Busy week ahead but so worth it!!!! Fill you in when I get back!

We'll be joining you in February for our first Disney cruise! We've been on a couple cruises before and always wanted to go Disney but couldn't afford it. So happy this very affordable one came about!

We plan to surprise our 4 children (ages 10, 8, 6 & 6) Christmas morning. Thinking about a scavenger hunt that leads to a treasure box with a "countdown clothesline" that hangs bags or balloons with small gifts &/or fun things to expect on the cruise. They can take turns opening one each day...we'll have to see how much time I find to be creative. It'll be here before we know it!

Can't wait!

We have decided to move our "reveal" to Thanksgiving. We were going to surprise the kids on Christmas Eve but my 9 yr grandson mentioned to me the other day that he was so excited to be going on a cruise in Jan. I asked why he said that and he said " Grandma you said you would take us on a cruise next Jan last yr" Opps he never got the memo that that cruise idea had been put on hold. Oh well he may not be surprised but he will be real happy.
And I read some stories about older children wanting to be part of the planning and getting real upset when they were surprised later. We can"t check in or book excursions til Thanksgiving Day so we want the 12 yr old to be as much a part of the planning as she wants to be.
Plus I am having a very hard time keeping the secret. Was never good at that.
Anyway they will never expect anything at Thanksgiving and there is more extended family here that day.
I hope everyone will share their "reveals" with us...sooo excited.
