This is the guy that said H no to a Walt Disney World vacation with our little girl for YEARS, as well. Once I finally broke him, he agreed to a measly 3 days in the park. I knew it wasn't enough, but beggars can't be choosers. I also knew once he went and saw for himself how wonderful Disney is, he'd be back. I love to say I told you so, and I did, often. We now go for no less than 7 nights and spend 7 days in the parks. VICTORY!!
So when he came home from work I said, "Guess what I did today?" Then proceeded to tell him about our cruise on hold. To my SHOCK, instead of him dying laughing on the spot, he said, "Where is it going?" Say what?? Then a Christmas miracle happened right in front of my eyes. I literally had to sit down. He grabbed my tablet, and, get this, started looking up the itinerary destinations for THINGS TO DO WHEN WE GET THERE!!!! We still had a few days to roll the idea around, so I wasn't packing my bags just yet. I kept waiting for the shoe to drop. But it never did. When the day came to put the deposit down, or lose our hold, he had no objections. I could have married him all over again right that minute.
Anyway, back to the cruise. I decided to go big or stay home. We, well, I booked a 7-night Eastern Caribbean Cruise out of Port Canaveral for Spring 2017.
In the meantime, I will be going through the cruise planning process on here in several blogs, including the daunting task of choosing a stateroom, choosing a destination, and all the other details that go into planning a Disney Cruise vacation.
Although technically I had to choose a destination, length of cruise, and stateroom first, I will write about that in a later blog. Today I want to share some of the fun things I have done in my 'spare' time to prepare for our cruise, you know, that is over 6 months away. . .
Decorating your stateroom door . . . It's a thing. My husband thinks it's not, but I will prove him wrong. Again. Seriously, google Disney Cruise Door Magnets and just take it in.
Here's what I've come up with so far. I used google images, my personal designs, and photoshop to create these images. They are for my personal use only. Mostly this is just for fun right now. Not sure if I'll even use any of these. (Though I can hardly resist a skull with a bow!!)
