Getting Ready for the Cruise 9/27/07 Me (Irene), 30 Compulsive planner DH (Erik), 31 Hates to plan DD (Fallon), 17 months old A very outgoing child and lover of all things Elmo After 11 months of perusing the DIS boards, I was in the know for our first DCL voyage. We were cruising the Disney Magic for 7 nights from 9/29 -10/6. I had my list of DIS tips printed, we were flying in the day before, and all our reservations were confirmed. Thursday we dropped DD off at her daycare bright and early so that we could pack quickly. I was all set to pack ASAP but DH had other ideas. After we got the car washed, picked up our ginger (Im a planner but also a procrastinator, they were on order because I just went to the vitamin store the Saturday before and they were out of the Minty Ginger for kids), bought photo mats and Sharpies (which included price comparison shopping ended up getting a pack of 25 for $4 at Target since we did have the WHOLE day ahead of us anyway, according to you know who) I was ready to pack. DH had other plans, so we picked up his mother and headed out for lunch and a quick stop at Blockbuster to watch a movie not sure when. The day went on like this and we finally packed after DD went to sleep, finishing at 1am. A-OK by me because my real concern was getting to the port at the crack of dawn to get a #2 boarding pass and making my Palo reservations. Will we get to the port on time? For that matter, will we make it to the airport on time? Do I get my Palo reservations? Do we follow any of my well thought out planning? Will DD call any/all of the characters Elmo? Stay tuned to find out the answers to these questions and more.
