Hi, I’m Mary Ann, and I have been an avid Mickey Mouse fan going back to the days when the Mickey Mouse Club aired on TV. As a kid, I always wanted to go to Disneyland in California, and remember my excitement when I heard that Disneyworld was being to be built in Orlando, Florida.
My family and I were in Miami shortly after the Magic Kingdom opened in Disneyworld and we took a day trip to visit the “happiest place on earth” envisioned by Walt Disney, a man of dreams who believed that “anything can happen if you let it”.The Magic Kingdom was breathtaking and I was immediately hooked on it.
I continued visiting the parks year after year, but my husband’s and my greatest joy was seeing the looks on the faces of our 3 children when they saw Mickey & Minnie in Walt Disney World for the very first time in the early 1980’s. Preparing and making the plans for our trips was very exciting for me and my enthusiasm built as our vacation date grew closer. By 2000, we had visited WDW 10 + times.We took our first Disney cruise in 2000.
It was a 4 night cruise to the Bahamas on the Disney Magic and we combined the cruise with a 3 night stay at Disneyworld. Since then, we have cruised with Disney Cruise Line every year and combined the parks with the cruises that departed from Port Canaveral. We never wanted the magic to end, so we stretched our vacation every time we could.
Cruising with Disney is awesome. We have been to exciting new ports in the Caribbean, Bahamas, Mexican Riviera, Barcelona, Gibraltar, Portugal, Northern European Capitals, Alaska, Hawaii and Canada. With Disney Cruise Line you can see the world.I look forward with excitement to planning your magical dream vacation so you too can build memories will last a lifetime.
