  • Trip Report Disney Magic Cruise August 1 - August 8 (Photo Heavy)

    Welcome to my Honeymoon trip report. I know a few people have been waiting for this trip report and would like to say sorry that it took me this long to post it. I have been so busy since I have been back.






    My wife found this great deal on-line, it was called "Fly, Snooze, Cruise" package with La Quinta hotel at Cocoa Beach. Included in this package was:
    Transportation from Orlando Airport,
    1 night stay at a hotel (with continental breakfast),
    Transportation to the cruise line the next day,
    When you arrive back to Orlando, transportation back to the airport.

    First it was a great idea to arrive the day before; it is less stress the day of the departure. Once we arrive to the airport we called the shuttle company to pick us up. We were told to wait at the pickup location and the shuttle should be there in about 30 minutes. To make a long story short, we sat there for 2 hours and waited for the Shuttle. The Shuttle Company was having issues that day with no enough drivers (which we found out later). But what annoyed us was that every time my wife called the company, they kept on saying 30 minutes. If they would have been honest we would of sat inside in the air conditioning airport and not outside in the humidity.

    Once the shuttle company picked us up, it was about an hour drive to Cocoa Beach. This is the closet city you can stay at if you are taking a cruise out of Port Canaveral. We finally arrive at the hotel around 9pm and we were starving. We check in to our room and check what time is breakfast and the time the shuttle is to pick us up in the morning. Lucky there was a Denny next door, we went there for dinner.

    The next morning we had breakfast at the hotel and our shuttle was schedule to pick us up at 9 am. Yup, you guess it; it was on time. Soon we were on our way to see our home for one week. It was only about 15 minute drives from the hotel to the port. I highly recommend staying at Cocoa Beach the night before if you have a cruise.

    When we arrive at the gate, we were greeted by port workers that took our bags.

    We were very impress by how organize the check in process was. It was very quick and easy.




    We soon found some seat and took in some sight at the cruise terminal.






    They had this ship model at the terminal, very good detail.










    Mickey and Goofy came out and took pictures with families.




    By 11:30 they started calling group number and we were call in. YAY!

            What is good about buying a Vinylmation on the cruise is that if you bought one and it was a duplicate one that you have. You can actually trade it with a worker at a store that other people have traded also.

              Pictures from our cabin, we decided to book a room with a veranda.









              The rest room was in two different rooms.

              One with a shower and a sink.

                Good morning, son
                In twenty years from now
                Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
                And I can tell you 'bout today
                And how I picked you up and everything changed
                It was pain
                Sunny days and rain
                I knew you'd feel the same things...

                  Soon everyone started to head to the Goofy’s pool where they have a party called “Adventures Away”. Let me say all the entertainment on the ship was very well done.



















                  We were now off for the week!




                  After the show we wonder around the ship.

                    LOL, I was wondering when that question was going to come up. I have posted a few trip report but with no photos of myself or anyone that has gone with me.

                    I'm a shy person :shy: and my wife would not want me to post pictures of us. :blush:

                    I think there was 1 pictures that I was in the background at this past year anniversary for MiceChat. Other than that I don't think people know how I look like.

                            Wow, you added so much more. I really like the character shots too. This makes me sad... I really wanted to go on this... No worries, I understand about your wife not wanting you to post photos of you two on here, but thanks for sharing the rest of the photos with us.

                              Day 2 ~ Day at Sea

                              Today was our group day to have our character breakfast. Everyone on the ship gets 1 day assign to have a character breakfast if you would like to attend. Our character breakfast was in Parrot Cay.



                              Pictures of the restaurant.





                              Characters at the breakfast.








                              After breakfast we wanted to try out some BINGO, which is the closest you will get to gambling on a Disney Cruise ship since they do not have a casino. Just to let you know that as more bingo session is going on throughout the week the cost to play gets higher. I believe this session was $40 - $60, and the last session was over $100. But if you are a regular player that week there is a small discount, $5 or $10 off I believe.

                              After BINGO we went to the lobby where there was a dance party going on with some characters.








                              Follow the train




                              Everyone dancing together.
