Disney in Numbers... Our Magical Vacation

In all honesty, Disney World had never been on my priority list of vacations.  I had never been in my 35 years and my kids had never been either.  Chris had spoken with a Disney Planner while at work and the ball got rolling for a Disney Vacation.  Mainly, a Disney Cruise but we also got to spend a day at Magic Kingdom.

To say I had a lot to buy and plan after we booked the trip was an understatement.  I am not a big "character" fan so my kids owned no shirts or clothes Disney related.  Actually, other than toys, they had nothing Disney... so the shopping began!

I thought it would be fun to share our experience with Disney in numbers!

Number of days left until the trip when we finally told the kids.  We kept this a secret for over two months which was hard but we did it!  A scavenger hunt on the last day of school led to surprises along the way and ended with a Disney Cruise video and a huge box of Disney surprises!

6 the morning.  The time we left the house for our trip.  Waking up at 5:00 was bad enough for me.  Waking the kids was even worse!  As you can tell, Sullivan was not very thrilled with being up this early and having her picture taken!

The number of hours we had to drive to get to Disney World.  Why didn't you just fly, you ask?!  I hate flying.  Like, really hate it so driving it was!

Our full day in the Magic Kingdom.  It was a long day but so worth it.  I was just as excited as my kids were and it totally lived up to everyone's love for it!

Number of minutes we waited to meet Elsa and Anna.  Thank you Fast Pass... that was the best choice I made the whole trip and to see the excitement on Sullivan's face was priceless!  I had kept meeting them a secret just in case Fast Pass lines were long as well!

Number of minutes people without Fast Passes had to wait to meet Elsa and Anna.  Again, thank you Fast Pass!

The longest amount of minutes we had to wait for any ride and/or character.  It was an awesome day! Chris and the kids are waiting to go on Ariel's Under the Sea ride.

Hours spent in one day at Magic Kingdom.  Our kids rocked!  They never complained, they never whined, they never once said they are tired.. nothing.  Nobody fell asleep in our arms and everybody had fun!  But by the end of the day, they were done!

Day we drove to Port Canaveral and boarded the Disney Dream.  So, so exciting!!!

Number of passenger decks aboard the Disney Dream

Our stateroom number aboard the Disney Dream.  We loved our room and I have already asked Chris to book the exact same room on the next cruise.  I'm sentimental and think it would be neat!

35 (again)
Our table number at each restaurant.  The kids loved it because our table number was the same as Mama's age!

217 and 1115
The height in feet  and length in feet of the Disney Dream

Approximate number times Camden and Chris rode the Aqua Duck... Disney Dream's Water Roller Coaster.

13 (again)
Number of feet the Aqua Duck hangs over the open waters of the ocean without the ship under it!

Number of feet long of the Aqua Duck.

Number of cookies ordered from room service.  We would order 4 Chocolate chip and 2 Oatmeal Raisin (for me) every single night around 10:30 or 11:00.  Those cookies were huge too!

A few things fall into the number one.  This is number of escargot I tried.  I thought they were disgusting!  This is also the place our kids took in the Vegetable Car race aboard the ship.

Number of Disney Princesses aboard the Disney Dream.  Sullivan was so excited to get to meet Tiana, Ariel, Rapunzel,  Snow White, Cinderella and Belle.

Number of Disney movies we watched while swimming in the pool.

Number of times anyone got sea sick!  Thankfully, the trip was smooth sailing and no one had problems!  We did have back-up just in case.

Number of pictures I took myself on the trip.

Number of pictures the ship photographers took of our family!

I hope you enjoyed our Disney in Numbers!  This does not even begin to touch the pictures I have to share but thought this would be the most fun way to bring you our Disney Memories!
