Well it had been a year since our last Disney cruise and while the original plan was a week at WDW in early Dec, the more we thought about it, the more we decided to sneak a 4 day Dream cruise into our vacation plans. A quick call to the legendary Cass and we were booked! This would be our 8th Disney cruise, but 1st on the Dream and we were very excited to see what Disney had in store for us! But first a few precruise days at WDW! The first day of travel and fun would be a long one as Robin woke for work at 5:30 am on Friday..She got out of work a little early as we had a 4 pm flight out of Akron. Robin aka Sweet Polly aka Tart Annihilator and i'm her "worse half" Underdog aka Mike 1st blue skies we'd seen in weeks.. We live in Ohio. Smooth flight and we caught the 1st Magical Express bus to our resort.(our ME bus was even a DCL bus!!)..Dropped off our luggage and headed to Epcot for Illuminations. Its Christmas in FLORIDA!! Orlando airport tree! Whoopie Goldberg was the celeb of the night at Candelight Procession We somehow managed to stay up till 12:30 am..a long day considering we woke at 5:30! Perhaps we're a little too old to be running around like this anymore?? No Way!
