This Dream in February will take you away aboard the Disney Dream for a Marvel Day at Sea!
Next February, 2023, there will be a convergence of “holidays” that will make you want to head out to sea! What am I talking about? Well, Mardi Gras and Presidents’ Day happen at the same time. This is going to lead to a massive flux of people to Disney Theme Parks AND Universal Studios. Instead, consider a cruise! This Dream in February will take you to sunny, warm, tropical destinations with beaches and umbrella drinks. Sounds like HEAVEN to me!
This sailing aboard the Disney Dream will sail from Miami on February 18, 2023. You will get two days at sea, including Marvel Day at Sea, amd stops in George Town, Grand Cayman, and Disney’s Private Island, Castaway Cay. This 5-Night cruise for a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children under 10) in a Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Extended Verandah will run less than $6500.

Walt Disney World is not the only Disney Park celebrating an anniversary this year! Disneyland Paris opened on March 6, 1992, and will be embarking on a 30th Anniversary Celebration that can’t be missed! Take a deep dive into the magic of this beautiful European theme park, from hotels to meal plans to parks and attractions!
6 Uniquely Themed Disney Hotels
Disneyland Paris has 6 on-site hotels (there are actually 7, but the Disneyland Hotel is undergoing a massive refurbishment!), that each offer a different level of Disney Magic. There are also numerous hotels off-site that are close to the parks, but you would lose the added benefits that come with booking the Disney hotels. And what are those benefits? That’s a great question, and I’d love to answer it! You receive Extra Magic Time in the Parks, Access to Both Parks (walking and free shuttles), Close Proximity to the Parks, Free Parking.
This Wild West-Themed Hotel lets you relax with with Woody and Jessie! Embrace your inner toy and your Wild West fantasies in one lively setting in Paris! That’s a really weird sentence, but, surprisingly, it all works! This hotel is a 20 minute walk to the parks or, again, a free, 8 minute shuttle ride.
KA-CHOW! This Pixar’s Cars-Themed Hotel will have you racing to enjoy it! The Paris hotels are all tastefully themed, with many properties that are quite popular, and the Hotel Santa Fe does not disappoint! This hotel, too, is a 20 minute walk to the parks and a free, 8 minute shuttle ride.
These self-catering cabins in the heart of the forest are for the adventurous traveler looking for a new form of relaxation. They are a 15 minute walk to the parks, with no shuttles.
Two Theme Parks
Disneyland Paris has two theme parks for you to enjoy. At Disneyland Park, you will find all the things Disney you would expect in a flagship park: Sleeping Beauty Castle, Big Thunder Mountain, Fantasyland, etc. Walt Disney Studios Park offers the Worlds of Pixar and, coming Summer 2022, Avengers Campus!
Unlike the American Disney Parks, Disneyland Paris is still offering their popular meal plans! There are 3 options, which I’ll get into shortly, and the perks are fairly obvious!
CULINARY ADVENTURE. Savor a variety of delicious cuisines in a Disney-themed setting for the ultimate Disney Dining Experience.
CHOICE AND FLEXIBILITY. Opt for 1, 2, or 3 meals per day, or add extra treats. There are options for all tastes and budgets!
A WELL-MANAGED BUDGET. With a pre-paid meal plan, you’ll know what’s included and how much you’ll spend ahead of time.
three basic meal plan options
Breakfast: Start your day with breakfast at your hotel, including drinks!
Half-Board: Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, then choose either lunch or dinner at the (included) restaurant of your choice!
Full Board: Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, then enjoy lunch AND dinner, for a total of 3 meals per day!
And that’s just the beginning! Are you interested in visiting Disneyland Paris? Contact me today to discuss packages!!

MARVEL DAY AT SEA
So, as the name of the cruise implies, there will be at least one day at sea, and that day WILL include Marvel!
What does that entail? You can meet your favorite Marvel Super Heroes, including Spiderman, Thor and Loki, Star-Lord Gamora and Groot, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel. Guests are encouraged to bring their own costumes for a Super Hero Costume Celebration in the atrium! And OH BOY, wait til you see how Mickey and his pals bring their character game!
At the Marvel’s Avengers Academy in the Oceaneer Club, younger guests will take part in Marvel-themed games, activities and crafts. Spider Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Thor will teach them what the true qualities of being a hero are.
Doctor Strange will host an interactive show. It will allow children to train in the “fundamentals of the Mystic Arts.” In completion of this training, his new young apprentices will receive a certificate to prove their knowledge in the Mystic Arts! After their training a battle breaks out, and Doctor Strange needs the help of his new apprentices to defeat the Dark Dimension!
Guests will be able to catch the latest and fan favorite Marvel movies while onboard, plus viewings of some Marvel television shows!
The cruise staff will host trivia competitions throughout the day, plus teach you how to draw your favorite super heroes.
