Below: Read all about our very first Disney Cruise Vacation!
Back in the fall of 2009, our little family of three took our first Disney Vacation!
I had been to Disneyland as a child, but this was the first time I would be going with my husband and our son, who was two and a half at the time. Grandma and Uncle-N also joined us.
We had scored an awesome deal on a 3-night Disney Cruise and added a few days at Disney World too!
For those that don’t already know, I am a Disney nut! As a child/teen I had been to Disneyland four times, and I loved each and every trip. The atmosphere in the parks is just so much fun, and of course there are all the rides and spectacular shows to see!
Anyways, back to the trip at hand.
Because we are from Western Canada, we had some driving and flying to get out of the way before we could start our Disney fun. We drove across the border so that we could fly out of Seattle. (Much cheaper than flying out of Vancouver!) It was a long trip, but so worth it!
Although we were all pretty tired once we landed in Orlando, we were still pretty excited to go on our first cruise. We grabbed our luggage and made our way to the Disney Bus transfer area. Loaded into the bus and were on our way!
Next came the Sail Away party, dinner at Parrots Cay, the Golden Mickey’s show and then bedtime for these tired travelers.
Well, that concludes the first day of our trip. Stay tuned for part two.
