Traditions – they are what make your holidays and events special. Adding Disney to those traditions can make your holidays even more magical. Even if you have a tradition that has been passed down for generations, it’s never too late to add a few new fun ones! This month, we will highlight some of our personal family traditions that show off our Disney side. Want to share yours as well?

As I started compiling a list of what my family wanted for Christmas so that I could start my holiday shopping, it dawned on me that we really don’t NEED anything at all. Seriously, how many Legos and Pokemon cards can one house hold? One thing our family is short on is quality time together, but how to put that on the Christmas list was the question. We live in Orlando so there is no shortage of Disney park time for us but that is hardly the relaxing family time I had in mind. The perfect solution for us – a Disney cruise!
The kids quickly jumped at the chance to forego their usual overload of “stuff” for a week at sea with Mickey! Now, there will still be a visit from Santa and a gift or 2 from Mom and Dad under the tree but our big family gift this year is a week on the Disney Fantasy. We managed to snag a great rate last minute with the military discount and instead of spending the last few weeks Christmas shopping, we have been cruise supply shopping! Instead of stocking stuffers, we have a bag full of Fish Extender goodies to hand out to our cruise meet group. We are all looking forward to a week of no emails or cell phones and plenty of AquaDuck rides. My 7 year old has the lofty ambition of riding the AquaDuck 47 times during our week at sea. I’ll report back in a later article to see if he reached his goal.
I have a feeling this holiday tradition of a Disney cruise will stick around. I certainly hope so!
