A Trip of a Lifetime!! This is how we justified the enourmous expense 15 days on the Magic would bring to our young family. We told ourselves whatever it would take to convince us it was worth it. It did not matter. I wanted on that boat!! This started back in January 2007. We were getting ready to take a Big trip for our family. We were going to set sail for 7 Nights on the Magic to the Western Caribean in Feb 2007! We were also going to spend a week at WDW!! Of course with all the preperations for this trip, devoting time to the DIS-Boards was Mandatory! The Big news in January 2007 was the upcoming date to secure a spot on the Disney Magic as it repositioned itself, through the Panama Canal! After reading a Trip Report from the 2005 Panama Canal Cruise and seeing their pictures, I knew I had to be on that boat. The only problem was, convincing the hubby, that making a deposit for the 6 of us to be on this cruise, two weeks before leaving on Vacation, was a good idea!! I obviously won!! This will be our second attempt writing a trip report. Our first trip report has a link in my signature for those interested. It was mainly written by my husband, but I filled in while he slacked off! This time we will co author, due to the lengh of this cruise!! The cast: DH age 30 DW age 30 DS1 age 10 DD1 age 8 DS2 age 5 DD2 age 2 (Turned 3 on this cruise) We also thought the timing of this cruise was perfect! We wanted DD2's birthday to be magical! She had a rough start to life, and has endured alot. This cruise would put her one year post open heart surgery to repair a hole in her heart and we wanted to celebrate her Birthday BIG!!! And Celebrate we did!!
