Be Young On the #DisneyCruiseLine

Never too old to be young on Disney Cruise Line

  In 2010, I decided to take a Disney cruise with my Mother in Law for her 80th Birthday. We planned the cruise, picked out our room 12028, made on shore excursions,massages and planned our dining. Our cruise was planned for February 2010,but as luck would have it, my Mother in Law was not well due to a heart condition. So, plans were put on hold to make sure she was ready to go, after all this was her Birthday gift and I wanted it to be perfect.
  Well, the cruise was cancelled and re-booked for November of 2011. Healthy as she could be off the two of us went, flight into Orlando airport, night at the Hyatt and Disney Cruise line express scheduled for a 10:30 pickup. We checked our luggage, our medications and  to add to our luck,Mother in law forgot her blood pressure medication. At 8:00 a call went into her doctor in N.J. Who luckily called back in a timely manner and sent the prescription over to a near by pharmacy. We were frantic now, would we make the Dream leaving at 4:00 with all aboard by3:00?
  Car service to the pharmacy, prescription picked up and packed in her carry-on, off to the DCL terminal on the DCL transportation. We laughed the whole way there. Got there by 1:00, right into our room and the rest of the cruise was flawless!
So flawless that I re-booked for the next year and then the next after that and here we are going on our fourth Disney Cruise together in November. I'm hoping for a smooth course,but life sometimes gets in the way and we readjust to the situation and "Let it Go"! What will be will be.
  These cruises have become a lifeline for her and for me,they brought us closer together and have created magical Dream memories she relives all year until we sail off into the distance of another Disney Magical Adventure!

    I loved your bonding trip adventure! Thank you for sharing*@*

  2. Thank you Dawn. It is a special trip she looks forward to each year since that first trip. Each year she gets a bit slower but she helps me relax and that's why the magic of Disney cruising is so special to me!
