Doing something different on holiday can be daunting, especially when you’re used to going back to the same place time and time again. This is particularly relevant for those who love Walt Disney World and Disney Parks around the world, but then go on their first Disney Cruise. You can go from knowing Magic Kingdom like the back of your hand, to being in a whole new world aboard one of Disney’s cruise ships: the Wonder, Magic, Dream or Fantasy. This shouldn’t be scary – it should be exciting! For those who love to plan, there is a lot to learn and get excited about before your trip.
Here are my top 10 tips to help you with your first trip on Disney Cruise Line. And it might even be helpful for those who have already been on a cruise. There is always more to learn!
If you have any questions about cruising with Disney, feel free to leave them in the comments below and I will try my best to help. Holidays on Disney Cruise Line really are my favourite things to do in the world now.
If you’ve visited Faraway Lisa Mae on YouTube in the last few months, you’ll know that I went on a Disney Cruise this year. Of course, I vlogged the whole trip and now all of the highlights are online. From exploring Barcelona for two days, to finally getting on board the Disney Magic, it was an eventful ten days with lots of excitement.
Here’s a look back at all of our days at sea and on land.
You’ve seen them all over Twitter. The bloggers who have weeks, or even months, of blog posts scheduled in advance. The ones that spend a whole Sunday taking blog photos and editing them. Whenever I see this, I feel incredibly impressed, and then I always wonder where I’m going wrong. But I don’t think that being a blogger who plans ahead is always the best thing to do, and here is why.
It’s now been a year since I got out my Canon G7x and vlogged our whole two-week Walt Disney World trip in October 2017. I felt pretty clueless back then. I didn’t know how much footage I was really filming or how to split between shots of what is happening and talking to the camera.
I like to think I’ve become slightly less clueless since then (which is a bit of a shame, as that first ever Disney vlog was my most viewed of all time – I kinda wish it was one I was more proud of). In fact, there’s a lot that I’ve learned through a year of vlogging.
I’m back off my Disney Cruise and life at home and work doesn’t quite compare to living on the Disney Magic. After counting down to a holiday for so long, I always come home feeling a little bit empty. Of course there are all the happy memories to look back on, but what next?
I get this after every holiday, so I’m used to dealing with it. Here are my top tips to get over the post-holiday blues.
