This week in the Way Back Machine, we travel to October 2012. Our First Disney cruise aboard the Disney Dream. And, what a dream it was....or at least it seemed so. But, after pinching ourselves, we discovered that it was totally real!
What a beautiful
ship she is!! But what I want to concentrate on here today, is our
last full day aboard the ship. This was a special day indeed. First
off, we got free bingo cards to go play. That was fun. Never won
anything, but that's ok.
When we arrived back at our
stateroom, there was another note hanging on our door. It was a note
asking us to go to the Vista Gallery on Deck 4, at 3:45pm for a special
surprise. That was all it said.
When we arrived, we
presented the note to the Cast Member who was working at the desk. She
smiled, and said that we needed to wait over in the area where there
were paintings all over. So, we did. It was about five minutes and we noticed a lot of Cast Members were approaching. Not really knowing what to think, we looked at each other and wondered...."what the heck?" Well.........we quickly found out!!
All of a sudden, the Cast Members were blocking the entrances to the gallery area, and a door opened and we were then surrounded by characters! Captain Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, Pluto and Chip and Dale! We had our own private photo session!! Both Paul and I were in tears at this point. DCL had gone above and beyond during the entire cruise to help us celebrate Paul's victory over cancer. This was the icing on the cake!! Disney Cruise Line, #1 in making memories last forver!!
WOW! Just WOW!!
We missed a photo with Pluto on other days, so just had to get this one with him alone!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks trip in the Way Back Machine!! Join us again next week for Throwback Thursday!
