Imagine if you will that it is New Year’s Eve on the Disney Fantasy. Hundreds of guests are milling around in the Lobby Atrium on Deck 3, listening to live music, and getting their photos taken while dressed in some of their finest clothing. The time is just after the first dinner seating and show and just before the second dinner seating and show. That’s when we did it!
We walked into the Lobby Atrium in our slippers and matching flannel pajamas. Why? We wanted photos!
We brought along the New Year’s Eve top hats that were left in our stateroom and provided to all guests to commemorate the occasion.
Other guests’ responses? Smiles, nods, and positive comments. I’m thinking Disney Cruise Line might get more guests doing the same in the future. And the photographers were happy to snap our photos. I had checked with one of the photographers on a previous evening, as she even offered the vestibule area for us to change in if we wanted/needed. We didn’t use the space but it was great of her to offer.
The pajamas were so comfortable, I almost wore them to the show, but the boy frowned upon that idea. A guest who had been with us in line for photos with her family of 18 prior to dinner, caught a glimpse of us in our pajamas. She saw us again as we entered the Walt Disney Theater to catch the production and we were back in our dinner clothes. She said, “How did you do that?” Ah, it’s all about the quick change! I was thinking that the location of our stateroom helps too!
Not only do we have photos, but we have the fun memories!
