The Mouse

It’s that time again.  Yep, time to visit our friendly neighborhood Mouse.  As in Mickey Mouse.  Only this time we are visiting his Florida estate 🙂  We are booking a Disney Cruise/Magic Kingdom stay for Carnival week next year.  Can I just tell you how excited I am?  And the coolest part is I get to have my mom and dad (he’s the BIGGEST Disneyland person I know besides me) come along!  And even better, the whole thing is going to be a Christmas surprise for the kids.  Provided we don’t let it slip before then – that’s a long way away!

It all started because I was telling my mom on the phone about all these airline miles we need to use up.  I had joked (only part joking) to Hubby that we should go to Disney World since I’d never been to that one.  I told my mom.  My dad has always wanted to take the kids to Disney.  So she said if we ever really did it they’d love to come along.  So I told Hubby and one thing led to another…
And we are going.  I have never been on a cruise before and I am a bit worried because boats and the ocean and me don’t mix well (My parents can tell you all about the disastrous trip between the Hawaiian islands when I was 15.  I don’t think I have ever gotten so sick to put it nicely.  And three years ago taking the ferry from Cape May, NJ to Rehobeth, DE.  I was a pretty shade of green though I did manage not to up-chuck lunch.  Nervous, oh yeah.  Everyone says these boats are different and huge and I’ll never feel it.  I better not.  If I throw up in front of Mickey, he just might not want to marry me.
It will be a lovely break in what I am sure will be a bleak dreary winter.  And we will have kid helpers, how cool is that?

  1. I can’t wait to take my girls to Disneyland… but like you, I want my parents and in-laws to go too. I don’t know if we could do it w/o them. They’d enjoy it as much as the kids.Good luck on the cruise! Never been on one – but I hear they’re fun!
