The guests have all gone home. The leftovers are stored in the refrigerator. The presents have all been opened; the tree looks a bit bare. It’s the day after Christmas.
And while we didn’t have a white Christmas, and some people are still wishing for a bit of snow, my wishes are turning towards next Christmas. It’s 365 days from today—2012 is a Leap Year! We are dreaming of Christmas on the Disney Dream!
Yesterday, amidst the cooking, cleaning, and entertaining, my mind kept going there. . . to Christmas next year on the Dream. No cooking, no cleaning, no navigating extended family schedules and expectations. Even the husband was daydreaming a bit about what Christmas would be like next year.
We know some people who are on the Dream for this Christmas. They are disembarking today. I can’t wait to hear all about the festivities and celebrations.
Already my mind has gone into planning mode. (I’m chuckling as I write this as the boy stated at the dinner table on Christmas Eve the plan for the next day—he comes by that quite naturally!) Do we need any special holiday items to take with us that might be on clearance right now? It’s too early to set the flight alerts on Kayak.com—we need another 3 weeks or so. This will be our 5th Disney Cruise, our last as Silver Castaway Club Members, so when we book our next cruise on board, we will be able to get the Gold Castaway Club on board credits—that means more! See, already thinking ahead.
In the meantime, I’ll keep dreaming about Christmas on the Dream.
I found this video on the Disney Parks Blog. It made me smile and I hope it makes you smile, too.
