Mummy is no Martha Stewart


The all important Lanyard

Disney Cruise Mummys are organized enough to bring lanyards, not only to display buttons and pins collected, but to keep cruise keys safe. Nothing is more irritating than , ” “MOMMA, WHERE’S MY KEY ???” 1000 times a day, apart from having to buy lanyards on the ship.




Speaking of buying disney paraphernalia, Disney cruise mummys  get into the spirit of it all, shopping for and wearing Minnie ears as a point of pride, before breakfast and beyond. The ones with sequins are superior and confer extra special Disney Cruise Mummy love.


Nothing says Disney love like these sparklies

Disney Cruise Mummys happily rock bikinis, tankinis and a variety of other beach casual outfits but also know that formal means just that. They come prepared  packing gowns, heels and full makeup, while Disney Cruise Dads squeeze into tuxedos without complaint. Disney Cruise Mummys also know that theme night means just that and come prepared to dress as pirates for a costume extravaganza that rivals Halloween. To avoid costume overload, Disney Cruise Mummys come prelaoded with a princess buffer zone. This allows them to embrace and absorb a shitload of  sparkle and fluffy stuff before it all gets too much!

Ahoy me hearties! Searching for Johnny

Disney Cruise Mummys are always mummys, but they leave their mummy rules on land. They don’t mind if their kids live on fruit loops, blue juice, pizza, hotdogs, ice-cream and cookies for the duration of the trip, after all it is vacation!!! They don’t mind if the kids are totally off schedule and don’t go to bed before 10 30pm every night because there is too much to do and too much fun to be had to waste time sleeping. Above all, Disney Cruise Mummys know that Disney is just that, time to reconnect with their inner child, their family and embrace the magic and wonder of it all. There are so many Disney Cruise Mummy Warriors out there.  I am just a foot soldier and have a lot to learn.
