Oops! Booked a Disney Cruise!

We had a placeholder booked for August for a 7 night Caribbean.

We were going to hold it until next year as we are in Florida this year, but are limited on time as we have to wait until after A Level results and be back in time for our youngest to go back to school.

We considered doing the 7 nights, but this would not given us much time in the parks.

So up until lunchtime today, we were flying to Fort Lauderdale and heading to the Keys, before going up to Orlando to stay on site. Then a cruise was mentioned by our youngest and my husband looked and saw there was a 3 night cruise on the Dream which came back on the day we are due to fly home.

It didn't take us long to decide that we were happy to knock the Keys on the head and do a Disney holiday and tag a cruise on the end of it!

We have been on longer Disney cruises, so know that this is going to feel very short, but we thought that any Disney cruise is better than no Disney cruise!

So now looking forward to a lovely family holiday before our eldest goes off to University!

Fantastic! We just got back from our 3 night cruise on the Dream - I absolutely loved it, going to try and do a week next year. I would definitely do a 3 night one again though
Enjoy! X

We love that short cruise on the Dream. Just enough time to rest the feet from all the walking. 😀

Good on you! It's so nice to have a magical trip before the kids head of to Uni.
We just booked an impromptu 3 night cruise too as our daughter will be going to Uni next year and life's just too short not to grab adventures when ever possible . We did our first ever 4 night one last October and loved it so much more than we ever imagined possible! Honestly never thought we'd book anything less than the 4 nights tbh, however when thinking about booking Universal tickets for 3 days, and adding a dessert party etc we realised that we'd much rather just spend 3 nights chilling out completely on the Dream in the Bahamas ...especially as Galaxies Edge being open will inevitably make things even busier...can't wait!

Yes we thought about going to Universal, but when we priced it all up, 3 nights on the Dream was much more appealing!

It will be such a nice time to relax together at the end of the holiday before our daughter goes to Uni (which I am dreading!)

We plan to go to Galaxies Edge the day before the cruise (the day it opens 😱😱😱&#128561 and then relax on the cruise.

Oaft! Youll defo need the rest after Galaxies Edge opening day 😱... you should maybe even consider a nice wee mother/daughter massage on the Dream 😀...magical memories made!

Awe, and try not to dread the Uni move too much, its not so bad. My eldest is currently in Toronto Uni finishing his 3rd year, and its honestly flown by! Like you, I was dreading him going, and there were definitely a few watery eyed moments but I hung onto to the exciting new chapter feeling as much as I could. Its true that it brings lots of changes but its good positive changes and I guess thats what makes all the wonderful, magical memories even more important! Its lovely to see how the memories made during special times together help to keep our kids close and grounded but also help them to have the confidence to fly 🙂.

Super exciting times ahead for you guys x
