Disney Cruise 2015 ~ All Aboard!!!

(Friday, February 20, 2015)  We were SO excited for our cruise to begin that we booked the earliest shuttle we could and arrived in time to be the first in line and the first in the terminal!  Woot!!IMG_6375


Glimpse of the Disney Wonder as we arrived at the Port of Miami.IMG_6374

It was great arriving early as we were able to check in, register Hannah for the Oceaneer’s Club, meet Mickey IMG_6387and wait (im)patiently for the approval to board!IMG_6388

We filled our time with photo shoots.IMG_6394






Around noon the announcement was made that boarding could commence.  Woo hoo!!!  Goosebumps!!

We immediately made our way to Parrot Cay to enjoy a delicious buffet lunch.IMG_6400

We took a tour of the ship during the afternoonIMG_6407

then made our way to our lifeboat drill.


After the drill it was time for the All Aboard show and to wave to family and friends watching our ship leave port via the port webcam…far, far away.  The Port of Miami webcams don’t get very close but we still had fun waving.   Papa got his Mickey groove on!

After the show it was time to change and head to our first dinner. IMG_6419 Disney cruising offers something unique to cruising in the form of rotational dining.  We always sat at the same table number and had the same great servers but we rotated between 3 different restaurants throughout the cruise.  This night and our final night we were at ' target=_blank>Animator’s Palate.   It was neat as the restaurant (and server Beata’s clothing) starting the evening in black and white IMG_6422

and then everything transformed as the evening progressed.

Dinner was followed by a welcome show in the Walt Disney Theater and then a first glimpse at the shops onboard where we bumped into our friends Liz and Ava who were also sailing on the same cruise.  Such cute little sailors!IMG_6435

Good night!  It was time to turn in and be gently rocked to sleep by the sway of the ship.  I could get used to this!!  Yo ho, yo ho a sailor’s life for me!!


  1. Looks like so much fun! It's too bad Papa didn't have a good time! Ha! I am excited to see the posts from the rest of your trip!

  2. I miss reading about Ava and Liz. Hannah is so tall.
