Mickey Sunglasses

We are counting down the days to our very first Disney Cruise.  I have taken on the challenge of participating in the Fish Extender Gift exchange on board the ship.  We have 20 cabins in our group with a variety of ages and some with kids and some without.  As soon as I saw these  polka dot sunglasses at my local Target I knew that they would be perfect for all of the Disney Gals in the group.  With a price tag of just $1, I bought all that they had and then went to the next Target looking for more!

The sunglasses were incredibly easy to assemble and took no time at all! For under $25 dollars, I have 20 FE gifts that are practical, fun, and Disneyfied! (Probably not a word, but I am still going with it)


  • Red Gems
  • Sunglasses
  • Super Glue
  • Tweezers

Who is going on a Disney Cruise? WE ARE!

In just about 60 days the Lewis Family will embark on their very first Disney Cruise.  Scott and I have cruised with other cruise lines before, but we are SUPER excited to take the kids on this adventure. We started planning this cruise almost 18 months ago and I cannot believe that it is right around the corner.  The remainder of summer vacation and getting ready to head back to school are sure to help us pass the time.

I like to think of myself as a Disney expert.  I keep up with all of the news and follow and read lots of sites for updates and ideas.  However, this Disney Cruising thing was all new to me.  It is like learning a totally different theme park inside and out.  Lots of the terminology was the same and of course the magical things that are available are similar, but the amount of information can be overwhelming. Anyways.... I have learned a lot and I plan on sharing it with you!

Oh and I forgot to mention we are also doing 5 days at the parks before the cruise.  This means that I have double planning duty!!!!  I am doing my best... less than 60 days!  Before this I had never heard of Fish Extenders, Door Decorating, Pixie Dusting, Pirate Nights, and dozens of others.  I know, I know.... what the heck is a fish extender?  I thought the exact same thing. I will save that for another day.
