Dreaming, Planning, and Speculating About Our Upcoming Disney Cruise




Yesterday, the husband and I were walking and talking and speculating about adventures and plans we have for our next Disney cruise.  Since our itinerary has a double stop, also known as a “double dip” at Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line’s private island in the Bahamas, we were pleased to discover that our number of times at Castaway Cay will exceed our total Disney Cruise number after our next cruise.  Yeah!

I could go on and on about the beauty and paradise that is Castaway Cay. . . and have previously—click here to read more.  Bikes and floats seem to be in our agenda for our two days at Castaway Cay.

There was the movie speculation for flicks on the ship.  We are hoping for “Brave” but know that Disney likes to put summer movies out on DVD early in November for holiday purchase, so “Brave” may be out of the running.  The husband thought “The Avengers” might be showing.  There is nothing more decadent that taking in a movie at sea—click here to read more—and DCL’s ships are equipped to show the latest movies including 3D.

Pirate Night plans came next.  Our itinerary is Port Canaveral, Nassau, Day at Sea, Castaway Cay, Castaway Cay, with Christmas being our Day at Sea.  I’m predicting that Pirate Night will be the night we are in Nassau—which is also Christmas Eve—complete with Pirate Party, shows, and fireworks at sea.  Pirate Night festivities accompanied by the late night Pirate buffet featuring giant turkey legs as the boy is very much looking forward to having his own, is definitely on our list of must do’s. 

For us, planning our Disney vacation is part of the fun, excitement, and anticipation.  We try to make as many decisions as we can prior to our trip, so that our vacation stress is minimized.  Already, our flights have been changed for our departure day, but to our benefit and without cost, thank goodness!

Packing list is made, plans for ports are in the works, pre-cruise hotel reservations are made, transportation is booked, pet sitter is reserved, and snow removal from driveway is secured.  Oh, and the husband asked if I was going to make him his little cards to carry that have all of our information on them.  I told him I would and may make a set for the boy, too.—click here to read about the info cards.  Now, to count down the days!
