Good things coming soon...

It is hot.  My children's schedule is oddly demanding.  Work has been pleasantly busy...It is summer time.  Vacation time.  And while I am not headed off to Disney this summer, there is a sandy South Carolina beach calling my name.

But I am also getting really excited about my upcoming Disney cruise.  Well, it is not upcoming until spring, but since we are now officially in summer that means I am one season closer...Right?  I know, I am mildly pathetic.  But did I mention that I am REALLY excited about checking out the Disney Dream?!?

Another thing that has me excited is that I hear a new blog dedicated to Disney cruising is on the way!  No comment on if this is part of the reason I have been staying up half the night lately.  Stay tuned for more details.

I am also working with several families who are headed off to Disney in December.  I love the first week of December at Disney.  The decorations, the parties, the lights, the low crowds, the Santa Mickey Ears...what is not to love?  To that end an executive decision has been made to run a Christmas in July series on The Mouse Connection.  Disney has really gotten me in the mood by publishing a partial list of guest narrators.  In case you missed the announcement, here is the latest (no official date on the dining packages, but I would expect it will be sometime next month):
     Nov. 25-27 — Mira Sorvino (“Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion”)
     Nov. 28-Dec. 1 — Michael W. Smith (Christian singer)
     Dec. 2-3 — Whoopi Goldberg (“The View”)
     Dec. 4-6 — TBD
     Dec. 7-9 — Isabella Rossellini (“Alias”)
     Dec. 10-12 — Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”)
     Dec. 13-14 — TBD
     Dec. 16-18 — TBD
     Dec. 19-21 — Trace Adkins (country singer)
     Dec. 22-24 — Susan Lucci (“All My Children”)
     Dec. 25-27 — Blair Underwood (“The Event”)
     Dec. 28-30 — Marlee Matlin (“Celebrity Apprentice”)

My whole family really enjoyed the Candlelight Processional last year, in spite of the freakish cold snap. Susan Lucci was our narrator and she did a great job.  I would love to see Whoopi or NPH this year, but sadly, I do not think it will be in the cards for us this year.  (Did I mention a few months after Christmas I am going on a Disney cruise? )

If you want to whet your cruse whistle, check out this video posted on the Disney Parks Blog.  Their amazing photog Matt Stroshane assembled 10,000still photos to condense a week long Alaskan cruise into 1 minute and 58 seconds.  While I am a total and complete beach bum, and it is hard for me to fathom taking a vacation where sunscreen is not involved, this has me rethinking things!

If I can help plan your cruise, Alaskan or otherwise, send me an email and we will find something perfect!
