Love hanging out in the terminal waiting to be called to board (excitement keeps building) and then walking through the "ears".....also feel it is cruise time when I walk up the gangway and enter the ship for the first time...feels like home

This is my family's first cruise... for me it will be walking into the Port Canaveral cruise terminal on embarkation day in 74 days.

When we sit down for Dinner the first night and the waiters place our napkins in our lap and give us so much attention we don't know what to do.

What a wonderful thread for the first-time ever cruiser. My excitement has been building for the last several days but this just kicked it up a notch or two!! Thanks to all of you that have already experienced the Disney Magic for sharing. Maybe after our Dream cruise in September I'll be able to post my favorite part of the sail-away!
