Disney Dream Christening Cruise


(photo credit Disney Parks blog)

A week and a half ago my doorbell rang and a package was at my door. This was not unusual, deliveries are a common occurrence around these parts. But this time I checked the return label and noticed it was from Disney. My first thought was "it must have something to do with the Disney Princess Half Marathon" because I registered that week. But to my surprise when I opened the box I was greeted with this.






A treasure chest that says Disney Cruise line. My heart started beating quickly because my next thought was I won the contest to win a cruise on the Disney Dream that I'd entered online. When I opened the treasure chest I discovered this





An invitation to the inaugural christening cruise of the Disney Dream! The Disney Dream is the newest ship in the Disney cruise line boasting 14 decks, the Aqua Duck water coaster (that goes around the ship, over the edge and back) and a multitude of activities for children and adults alike!

I nearly fainted. I've always planned to take my son on a Disney Cruise. Before I ever became a parent good friends of mine told me a Disney Cruise must be experienced.

Today when I spoke to the event coordinator it all became a reality for me. In January my son, mom and I will be embarking on an adventure. My son will see the ocean and experience a beach for the first time. My mom and I can enjoy another mother/daughter trip (we haven't had one since 2003) and of course we will all enjoy the magic of Disney together!

In my usual style I'll be telling you all about the fitness facilities on board and of course all the activities for children. I know my mom and I will be indulging in spa services and I can't wait to report back to you - in my bikini of course!

I truly feel blessed to be among the first to experience the Disney Dream; I feel like I've won the lottery!
