The Sea Witch Stole My Voice! Our Two Week Land and Sea Adventure! COMPLETE 4/12
 
Hey everybody! I am back from my fantastic two week land and sea vacation and I am ready to get this, my third trip report started! As with my other reports you can expect lots and lots of photos and detail, our photo count is right around 5000! Also there will be some video for your enjoyment. I am also going to try my best to get an update out AT LEAST once a week or more so there will be no long waits for updates here. I love and appreciate all my readers so if you are reading please don't be shy, post and say hello! :goodvibes Lastly I will be keeping a table of contents here in this first post for easy navigation and at the end of each update there will be a link to the next installment. I do this as I know that not everybody wants to read the chatter between updates. With that said, onto the report!

For those of you who are new to my reports let me give you a brief introduction to my family and myself.

Traveling this year was myself, Lessa, and my mother, Beth. Usually my crazy brothers, Alek and Erich, come along as well but they opted to stay at home this year. What trouble could they have gotten up to while we were away? :scared:

First there is me, Lessa (25), your dedicated trip reporter. I love traveling and WDW is one of my favourite places to visit. I also love to take pictures so you can be sure that this report will be full of them. :thumbsup2 I graduated from university a few years ago and I am heading back to school in the Fall to start working towards a Nursing degree. Since school will be taking up a lot of my time and money for the next couple of years this was our last Disney trip for a while. :sad1:

Next there is Mom, Beth (46) to the rest of you. ;) She is a great Mom and loves to indulge me, thus agreeing to go on this lovely two week adventure. Not that I had to twist her arm or anything, she loves Disney and WDW just as much as I do. :rotfl: She works for a hospital fundraising foundation, very busy and stressful work so she really deserves her vacations.

(No we are not crazy people who walk around wearing napkins on our heads)

Of course I can not leave out my brothers. Of course they did not come with us physically to Florida but their influence is far reaching and I felt like they were there with us in spirit if not in body. Of course the fact that Mom wanted to call them everyday to check on them helped keep them fresh in my mind as well. ;) Keep a look out for them as they like to pop by and make contributions to my reports which usually turn out to be hysterical. ;)

With the introductions out of the way now I can get to the details of the trip! We visited WDW from May 16th - May 23rd staying at Pop Century and then we set sail on the Disney Magic for a 7 night Eastern Caribbean cruise!

The 7 day was fantastic! I can't imagine only doing a 3 day, the 7 day went by so quickly! Any Disney cruise would be great though in my opinion.

I'm in! Two weeks? Wow!

You and your mom look so much alike. At first I thought those napkins were baby bonnets on your heads!
