On New Years Eve we were blessed to be able to go on a Disney Cruise with my family. My parents gave this to us as a Christmas gift and we were so thankful. The kids excitedly counted down the days until New Years Eve! We were aboard the Disney Wonder and had a great time connecting with all of our family and enjoying the party that is a Disney Cruise!
Dinner was set up for a party since it was New Years Eve! We all got fun hats and were pleasantly surprised to see coloring books, crayons and cups with lids on the tables for our kiddos that night and every night! We enjoyed meeting our Jamaican waiter Glenford and the girls enjoyed dressing up in their princess dresses which that were also able to do each night.
Happy New Year!
My little princesses
Mickey Mouse-shaped ketchup!
Our room had a full bed and two bunk beds so two of our kids ended up sharing a bed each night. But they were so worn out at the end of everyday there were no problems falling asleep!!
Our first morning on the boat we joined other young kids for a Disney dance party and were surprised to have Mickey join us at the end. We were able to add his autograph to the kids autograph books and continue our collection...
The kids were thrilled to explore the ship, spend time in the kids club, swim in the pools and slide on the water slide, and watch the Broadway-style shows in the theater! There was also a movie theater on board and the kids got to watch Frozen and Monsters University which was one of Oliver's favorite things about the ship! As well as knowing what the schedule was each day. Just like his momma!
One of the highlights of the trip (especially for Gabriella) was meeting all of the characters! Here she is with a few of the friends she met on board...
Princess Anna from Frozen!! (her favorite!)
Megan and baby Davis!
Meme and Pepe enjoying their newest grandbaby
The Hulse family
Aunt Natty and her loves
3 year old cousins!
One of the nights on our cruise was pirate-themed so we all got into character! This was the one night that Oliver felt comfortable enough to get dressed up and looked awesome in his full pirate costume!
There was a bit of sea-sickness involved on the last day of the cruise, but the seas settled down by the afternoon and we enjoyed seeing our big kids perform on stage with the other kids from the kids club. We will long remember the memories we made on this trip and are so blessed to have such a wonderful family to share them with.
