It’s officially been over a month since I stepped foot off the Disney Magic and back into reality. While my reality is a pretty nice one, it’s certainly no Disney Cruise reality. I’ve already had at least three dreams about going back (I can see why Rose kept dreaming about the Titanic now) and several secret planning sessions online to see when (not if) we can all go together as a family. It may be years, but it will totally be worth it.
So what’s it like on a Disney Cruise? Thankfully I took an awful lot of video to show you. But don’t worry, these aren’t long clips of boring vacation video where you have to listen to me tell Addie where to stand and what to say, this is a highlight reel of the first three days on board. Multiply these few minutes by seven days? You’ll get a better idea of what a vacation is like on board a Disney Cruise ship. Yes, I was there for “work” but everything I filmed and everything we did were things anyone could do on a Disney Cruise (except for one tiny little thing, but that’s in the next video.)

The stingray bit was an excursion I personally paid for in Grand Cayman, but it was booked through the ship. The ship’s horn blowing “When You Wish Upon a Star” was an absolute highlight and never got old in any of the ports. Pirate night happens on every ship and was better than the best thing I can imagine comparing it to. Man you guys, it was amazing.
