Talking OOO WAHH SHAA GAHH (brushing up on my whale)-A Cruise Trip Report Update 3/21

Hello Disboards, did you miss me?



Hello Disboards, did you miss me? For those of you who don’t know I am Mark and this is my second trip report.
You can read my first one here. Anyways I am back… in about a month, as this is a PRE-trip report! So lets get right to the good stuff!!!!!
First let’s explain the title, I am sure a lot of you have seen the amazing Disney/Pixar movie Finding Nemo. Well if you happened to miss that one, let me catch you up. In the movie, Dory (who is voiced by Ellen Degeneres) claims that she can speak whale and since on a Disney Cruise trip you never know who you might meet, so I am working on a second language!

So….

What: Disney Cruise

When: January 6-10, 2014 (although we are flying in on the 5th)

Where: Disney Magic 4-night Bahama’s cruise

Who: Me, My Mom and My Dad

I am so excited about this trip because I love, Love, LOVE! Broadway musicals and I know there are a bunch of Broadway style shows.
Plus there is a lot of other fun stuff planned, such as Pirate Night!
I hope you all will join me on my trip, I love to respond so don’t be afraid to post!!!

Cast of Characters!

Me (Mark)



I am Mark! I have been to Disney World 3 times (2000, 2012 and 2013), Disneyland once in 2013 and I was at WDW in the Spring of 2013 for my college program.
I was in Entertainment and had some pretty cool friends. If you want to read about my college program check out Here. Jess is one of my best friends and I had the pleasure of doing my college program with her!
Anyways a lot of people ask me what my mark (he he he that’s my name) on the Disney community is and I will always answer with… the Character Selfie. Not saying I invented it but I like to think I popularized it!
So that being said we can expect a lot on this trip, because characters are my favorite things in the whole world!!!!!
The first time I went to Disney was in 2000 and it was amazing, but it wasn’t until my college program that I became completely obsessed!

Here are my deets!

This is my Mother. She’s great!
She has been to Disney World 5 ½ times (the half is because she stayed at Coronado Springs with me when I went on my college program) and Disneyland once!

I am fan of yours AND of character greets!
I went on a couple of Disney cruises but it has been quite a while back so I am looking forward to seeing what has changed since 2004 and 2006! (I'm not gonna rule out the possibility of another cruise someday!).
I think whale is one of those languages that will impress your friends and add depth to your personality! Good choice!

Hello!
I read through Jess's DCP report and it looks liek you guys had a lot of fun! I wish I had found out about the DCP BEFORE I graduated, that probably would have changed a lot for me, lol.

We are sailing on the Magic on the 13th so it will be fun to compare experiences! Look forward to hearing your plans!
