Welcome to my first-ever pre-trip report - I am beyond excited for this itinerary and that it finally fits our schedules. (Edited on January 18 - I figured out how to add photos!!) A bit about us: We are a family of four who have become Disney lovers - this will be our 5th cruise (GOLD!!!) and definitely the one that I am doing the most 'intense' pre-planning for. - DH and I are in our mid-30s with regular corporate jobs who love to travel and experience new things. This cruise will get me to 37 countries (Iceland and Norway are new) which will match my age at the time of the cruise. - DD1 - referred to as S from here on out- will be 9 for this cruise and has been to over 20 countries. Minnie is her absolute favorite character and we have a very well-loved Minnie that tends to go everywhere with us. - DD2- referred to as C from here on out - will be 4 for this cruise and has been to over 11 countries. She is the only one who won't be gold after this cruise since she wasn't born yet for our first cruise. C prefers princesses to Minnie and has taken a recent fascination with Fancy Nancy. Our previous Disney experiences have all been captured on my personal blog and can easily be glanced through: https://jmsadventure.blogspot.com/search/label/Disney These include: - Visits to Disneyland Paris in 2013 and 2014 - Mediterranean Disney Cruise in 2013 (no C yet!) - Alaska Disney Cruise in 2015 including my parents - Aulani in 2016 - Northern Europe Disney Cruise in 2017 - WDW + Princess Half Marathon in 2017 - Wester Carribbean Disney Cruise in 2018 We simply love Disney, especially cruising, for the amazing service and overall experiences. We tend to enjoy character visits and family activities. DH and I have enjoyed Palo dinner twice (maybe this is the time to try the brunch??) and he enjoyed the mixology last time. My favorite activity on our recent cruise was the Royal Tea as a one time experience. I welcome questions and suggestions since this is my first PTR.
