2016 Disney Dream Cruise Trip Report/Layout Share

I decided to combine my Disney Dream Cruise trip report and layout share in one. So I will be sharing bits about the trip along with the scrapbooking layouts as I create them.

Here is the first project—this was originally a countdown frame for the trip that is now wall art and a great introduction to our traveling party.



Back row: my BIL Todd, my sister’s friend and cabinmate Mary Lou, my sister Mary, my sister Ruby, me and DH Gary. Front row: Nephews Ethan, Jordan and DS Nik.

Saturday September 17-We left our house around 5am and were in Indiana by 5:45. And that is when the rain started…it was a pretty constant and steady from there through Kentucky and into Tennessee. We stopped around Murphesboro for gas and realized they were having a gas shortage due to a pipeline leak in Alabama. It took us three stops before we found a station we could fill up in. The rain had finally stopped, but that didn’t stop our traffic delays, we were slowed down north of Chattanooga due to lane closures and hit some heavy traffic in the Atlanta area. When we got to our hotel, the Drury Inn in Marrow, we were told that the BET Hip Hop awards were being filmed that night, causing traffic delays. Between the weather and these delays, what should have been a 12 hour drive turned into 14.5 hours. We got to the hotel around 7:30, too late for the 5:30 Kickback, which was kind of a disappointment because I could have really used an adult beverage after that drive!

Sunday, September 18-We got back on the road around 6:30am and had no major delays for the rest of our drive. We arrived in Cocoa Beach around 2pm and checked in to the Hampton Inn. Gary & I went to Ron Jon Surf Shop and Publix to pick up some beer for our stateroom. When we got back to the room we took a walk along the beach, which I repeated with Nik the following morning.

After texting back and forth with my two sisters, we decided on a time to meet for dinner. We headed out to Fishlips which is at the port.


Nik and I decided to share entrees, I ordered the coconut shrimp and he got the fried shrimp. He didn't end up liking the coconut shrimp very much. I also ordered a Florida Lager which was very good.

Here are some photos from the next morning of the sunrise on Cocoa Beach which I took our walk before we got ready to head to the port for our first ever Disney cruise!!

I realize that. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get photobucket to work as it keeps giving me broken photo link image. I will keep trying....

We had breakfast and got checked out of our hotel around 11am and headed over to the port. We parked on the first level so we had to go up one floor to cross to the terminal. We got checked in fairly easily and was in group 16. We found my sister and her family who had gotten there early but had a later boarding number. We texted my other sister to find out where they were and soon saw them checking in and we all hung out for a bit before they called our number.
