Can I get a Light Saber? Our January '19 SWDAS Trip Report! Hello, and welcome to my first ever Cruise Trip Report! I have done a WDW trip report (and will be working on a pre-cruise WDW TR again), but this is my first Cruise TR! I have enjoyed reading SO many other cruise reports, and they have been so helpful with planning this trip, so I thought I'd give it a go. First, some intros! WHO: Ali (34) and DH Donnie (32) WHAT: Star Wars Day at Sea Cruise WHERE: Disney Fantasy, Western Caribbean WHEN: January 5- January 12, 2019 WHY: Why NOT?! Haha. Okay, so perhaps the "why" needs a bit more explanation? We had had a Disney cruise planned for 3 years ago: it was to be a 5 night Western cruise out of Miami. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the cruise 3 days before sailing because my mother passed away. We have taken 2 WDW trips since then, but I still felt the 'call to the sea' since we didn't get to go on our previously planned cruise. This cruise was to make up for our missed cruise, and we deserved it! DH is halfway through his 3 year MFA program (studying Arts Leadership), so it seemed like a nice halfway done vacation, too! We did a week long WDW vacay July '17 and are hoping to visit Disneyland for his graduation in the spring of 2020. I work full-time at a Dinner Theatre as an actor, singer, dancer, choreographer, director, cast house manager... the list goes on and on. Christmas season is exceptionally busy at the theatre, so taking a January vacation was perfect timing for me. We left chilly SW Virginia January 1 around 6 a.m., drove the approximately 10 hours to Orlando, and spent four wonderful nights at Bay Lake Tower before boarding the Fantasy. We spent 3 very full (and very busy) days at WDW. After the craziness of WDW the days after New Years, we were really looking forward to some relaxation and quiet, and hopefully less crowds and craziness! NOW, on with show!!!
