Planning for our Disney UK Staycation Cruise | May 2021

I am a massive Disney fan and also love to be by the sea so a Disney cruise is something that we have always wanted to experience. So when we heard about the UK staycation cruises this year it was definitely a trip that we wanted to consider and explore further. 

Last year we were really lucky to be able to see the Disney Magic Cruise Ship docked at Dover and it was an amazing sight. There was so much excitement at just being able to see the ship, we knew at that moment that we needed (at some point) to book a Disney Cruise to experience the magic of cruising mixed with our love of Disney. As well as getting to experience being on Board a Disney cruise ship!

Obviously this past year has been very different in terms of booking holidays and/or cruises but when we heard about the UK staycation cruise it was definitely something that we wanted to consider. Even up to the day that the sailings were released for reservations we still didn't know if it was something that we were going to do. There are a lot of booking requirements (in terms of vaccines) that have to be met as well as restrictions whilst on board which we needed to take into consideration. In the end and after talking it through a lot we decided that we would go ahead and book. 

In the end we went for a two-night cruise and will be sailing from London Tillbury which is a perfect location for us. Now that we have gone through the booking process and have it all confirmed as well as starting to get our vaccines, we are now very much looking forward to boarding the ship. You've got to love a holiday countdown especially when it relates to Disney!

We decided that we would just go for a 2-night cruise as it will also be our first cruise experience, and thought that this would be a great way to try out a cruise before looking at booking anything longer or further afield. One of our dreams would be to experience a Disney Cruise in the Bahamas and to get to visit the private Castaway Cay island. 

Now we are at the stage of planning our trip and working out what activities or additional bookings that we want to make during our cruise. We have definitely missed all the planning that goes into holidays and especially Disney holidays so it has been great to get back into this. Whilst there are differences to our planning for this cruise due to the current circumstances, we are enjoying starting to think about outfits and activities to do whilst at sea. 

So far I have purchased this amazing jumper from Magical Day Apparel which is going to be perfect for this cruise alongside these face masks from LaursCraftyThings on Etsy. I have had the Disney Cruise Dream Guide by Adam Hatten for a while but now it is going to be perfect for our trip and to understand any tips that will be useful to know!

Are any of you going on a Disney UK Staycation this year and do you have any planning tips for first time cruisers?
