There and Back Again: A Land and Sea Disney Christmas Tale! Introduction Hello everyone and welcome to my next Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line Trip Report! This will be my first time doing this style of a Trip Report. That is because I am going to include 2 separate trips in this trip report. I’m really excited to head to Walt Disney World for my Birthday on a November Trip. This will also be the start of my favorite time of year at any Disney Theme Park which is Christmas time! Then in December, I will be traveling to Walt Disney World again before boarding the Disney Fantasy for a Merrytime Cruise to the Caribbean!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME: My name is Zach, and I grew up 20 minutes away from the Happiest Place On Earth (Disneyland) before choosing to go to school in Kansas. I still wonder why I left Disneyland for a school in a colder climate? So, Disneyland is where my love for Disney began at a very young age. We would go to Disneyland about 2 times a week for most of my life. I really like music (my Disboards name might answer that), and I actually got my degree in Music Education. I play several instruments (saxophone and piano), and I also sing. For this reason, I really like seeing shows more than riding attractions while at Disney Theme Parks. Even if I like shows more than attractions, I will still find myself going on rides. Favorite Disney Theme Parks: Disneyland, Disney's Animal Kingdom (WDW). Favorite Disney Theme Park Show: Festival of the Lion King. Favorite Disney Parade: Main Street Electrical Parade. Favorite Disney Theme Park Nighttime Show: Illuminations. Favorite Disney Theme Park Attractions: Big Thunder Railroad, Expedition Everest, and Flight of Passage. Favorite Disney Theme Park Entertainment: Voices of Liberty! Favorite Disney Movies: Lion King and Toy Story (1, 2, and 3). Favorite Disney Songs: Anything from the Lion King, A Whole New World (Aladdin), Santa Fe (Newsies - Broadway version), Seize the Day (Newsies), Go the Distance (Hercules), You've Got A Friend In Me (Toy Story), and many more.

MORE ABOUT THIS TRIP: On my first trip, I will be staying at All-Star Movies for 6-nights. This will be my 2nd time staying at this resort. I really liked this resort the first time I went, and I am hoping to get a refurbished room again. On my 2nd trip, I will be doing a split stay at All-Star Music and Port Orleans French Quarter. I’m really excited to stay at Port Orleans French Quarter for the first time! This stay at Walt Disney World will total a week. Afterwards, I will be boarding the Disney Fantasy for a Western Caribbean Merrytime Cruise which I am also really excited about! I will be attending Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for the first time on both of these trips which is one thing that I am really excited about! There is another reason why I’m heading to Florida a couple times really close to each other, but I will get into that when I start another Trip Report in the future. I hope that you enjoy…There and Back Again: A Land and Sea Disney Christmas Tale!
