For this #tbt post, I’m taking you along on our cruise with Disney! With 2 kids, we knew we had to cruise with Disney at least once while they were still young. The kids were 7 and 9 years old when we went on the Disney Dream back in 2015. Disney details, such as Mickey Mouse ears, were everywhere.
Our room was pretty big for a cruise room. We had a partially blocked balcony but that didn’t hinder our view of the ocean. Plus, the natural light pouring into our room was awesome! Here the kids are checking out every nook and cranny of the room…lol.
Getting ready to sail out of Orlando…
One day while we were in port, the kids and I stayed on board and rode the Aquaduck at least 10 times, no exaggeration! The line was minimal as everyone else was in port. That water slide was SO.MUCH.FUN!
Kids being silly, clinking their milk glasses, at dinner.
Again with the silliness, showing off their little Mickey and Minnie character dolls.
We loved having our own balcony!
Breakfast consisted of Mickey Mouse shaped waffles and other breakfast goodies.
Swimming while watching the big screen. What a life! I wish it lasted more than 7 days. 😉
We were on the cruise a week before Halloween so we got to enjoy the Halloween-themed decor all around the ship.
Every cabin gets a wave phone that can be used throughout the ship. When the kids were in the kids’ club, I carried the phone around so I’d get notifications. This one day, my daughter wanted to leave early so I went to check her out.
Beautiful mosaic along the wall in the buffet area.
Mickey Mouse ears all over the ship, including mirror ears in the public bathrooms.
At turn-down, our steward made towel animals and used one of the kid’s sunglasses as a prop. The kids looked forward to the different animal shapes every night, and the chocolate!
Disney has their own island, Castaway Cay. Water was unbelievably blue! There were plenty of lounge chairs. With the Disney ship in the background, the view was amazing!
Lunch was included on the island.
Back on the ship, there were fireworks one night. We got a great view through the Aquaduck.
The last night was reserved for pin-swapping with the crew.
It was a memorable cruise. But to be honest, I don’t think the kids are interested in a Disney cruise now, just 2 years later. They’re all grown up, or so they think, ha! Everyone loved cruising though so I know this won’t be our last!
