Our next adventure!

The Disney Dream

This time next week the hubby and I will be on the Disney Dream. It'll be our first Disney cruise, my 2nd cruise ever and Chauncey's first cruise ever. As you can imagine, we are both very excited! I loved my last cruise and I know that Chauncey will love cruising. What makes this cruise more exciting is that there will be a very special guest on board:

That would be legendary song writer Richard Sherman of the famous Sherman Brothers. Richard along with his brother Robert are responsible for some of the most loved music Disney fans know including the songs from "Mary Poppins", "The Jungle Book", The Tiki Room, It's A Small World and more. 

The reason that Richard Sherman is going to be on this particular cruise is because he's the special guest  of Lou Mongello, host of the WDW Radio Show and author of the Disney World Trivia Books. We didn't know Richard Sherman was going to be on this cruise when we booked it, we've been listening to Lou's podcast for years and when Lou announced this cruise we say "Let's go!" We've been wanting  to do a Disney cruise and figured this would be the best way to go on our first one as we knew that there would be fellow Disney fan and people who also listened to the podcast so we'd have lots in common. When Lou announced several months ago that Richard Sherman would be on the cruise, well you can imagine the excitement!

At this point we're not entirely sure what all will be happening on the cruise as Lou is known for his surprises and keeping things secret, but I can guarantee that I'll have tons to tell you all when I get back!


  1. OMG!!!!! I hope you find him and get a picture. I hear he's super nice. I'm so jealous (in a good way of course! ) I hope you two have a blast! Can't wait to read the recap. Btw, MDB wants to know if your Pirate Duffy is going with you? :)

    1. Oh I shouldn't have any trouble finding him. Since he's Lou's guest and we're part of Lou's group we are included in any appearances Richard Sherman will make during the cruise. I do hope we get to meet him. I'm taking my mom's vintage vinyl copy of the Mary Poppins soundtrack and hope I can get it autographed! Oh and tell MDB that yes, Pirate Duffy is going. Can't have pirate night on the seas without Pirate Duffy!

  2. Oooh well excuse me Miss Fancy! ;) That is so cool! I hope he'll sign your Mom's vinyl record and that you post pictures of your trip. I can't wait to read all about it!

    MDB is beary excited that Pirate Duffy is going with you too! Totally wouldn't have it any other way right? :)

    1. Oh there will be pictures, trust me. And yes, I can't go anywhere without Pirate Duffy!
