Hey y'all, if you're jumping on over from The Land portion of this TR I'm so glad to have you on board with me! If you are climbing aboard as a new reader this TR is a three part vacation that started at Walt Disney World with a two night stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo House. If you're interested in our memories there please jump on over http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2932896 If you're only interested in the cruise portion of this TR, you are in the right place and I'm so glad to have you as a new reader! Here's a quick intro for those only joining us at sea (from left to right) First up, there's me. I'm Shannon, a 30 year old Disney lover, dreamer, planner and self-proclaimed addict. I don't think I will ever tire of the magic that is in a Disney vacation whether it's on land or at sea. Next up is the Hubs, Candi. Also 30, he got bit by the Disney bug a few years back and now encourages our yearly rendezvous' with the Mouse! He does, however, prefer our cruise trips to our land trips and has this strange belief that vacations are for putting up your feet and relaxing That cutie in the arms of my Handsome man is our son, Candido. He is fifth generation so we go by his middle name, James or his nickname, Cinco. James tunred 16 months during our trip and although this was his first trip where he could experience all Disney has to offer, he technically had been on a Cruise and to Epcot in my belly Joining us on this trip we also had my parents, Ken and Mary. This was their very first cruise and their first time to WDW since our family vacation in 1998 Since they live over 600 miles away from us I was beyond ecstatic for them to be able to create these memories with their Grandson! A Few Quick Details: Ship: Disney Magic Embarkation Date: May 18, 2012 Debarkation Date: May 23, 2012 Itinerary: Key West, Day at Sea, Nassau, Castaway Cay This cruise was originally planned to be a double dip at Castaway Cay on board the Disney Dream. However, too much hemming and hawing over time off resulted in there not being any more rooms available for DVC (which is how the three of us were booking). So, we chose a cruise that fit the dates we wanted which was this one. Would we miss our second stop at Castway Cay? How would we like Key West? Would we be sad that we were on an "oldie" and not a "newbie" ship? And, just how would a cruise live up to my parents expectations?
