Max meets Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and co. on the Disney Fantasy



"Bliss" does not begin to describe how happy Max was to hang with the gang on the Disney Fantasy. His glee was the same every time he'd spot one of them: He'd break into a huge smile, squeal and make a mad dash over. "Ecstatic" pretty much describes how I felt seeing Max so giddy.

Years ago, real-life characters used to scare him but now, Max can't get enough. I was surprised he didn't ask us to buy a plane ticket home for Mickey.

First Mickey sighting on the ship

Max showing Goofy how dogs walk (he didn't think he should be standing up)

I know: awwww....


Double awwww....

Jessie and Woody (my favorite sightings)

Max tries to get the inside scoop

Dance party with Snow White and Happy! Or is it Sneezy? Dopey? Wha?

Pluto

Grooving with Chip at a family dance party—Max had no fear of loud music if characters (and headphones!) were involved

Max escorted Captain Hook back to his lair

Max meets Max

Buzz Lightyear (alas, he did not fly)

Minnie was better dressed than I was

On Castaway Cay



Disclosure: We received a discount from Disney Cruises, but the opinions (and bliss) expressed here are solely my own.

  2. He's right about Goofy. But then, mice don't exactly walk on two legs, either.

    1. Very true! Somehow, though, Mickey is larger than his mouse-hood.

    1. I got a little weepy when he kissed Goofy on the nose.

  4. Can we have a close-up of those adorable red shoes Max is wearing?? Sorry -- I just remembered that he's getting to be a big guy, so I probably can't say that they're adorable. They're REALLY cute, though!

    1. Those, my friend, are the Lightning McQueen sneakers I got Max for his birthday! Here they are, from the Disney Store: http://bit.ly/X1U9aB

  5. That's so awesome! Love Max's grin. So far, all I've met was Goofy at Disney World almost 16 years ago. Max has got me beat big-time! ;)

  6. Max is getting VERY social in his "double digit" years! And when did Sabrina get so tall? The kids look like they had a blast. I'd love to do that someday, but I'd have to win a contest--that kind of adventure is a bit outside my price range!

    1. Max has always been a friendly kid, but he is exceptionally so around these guys! Sabrina's always been big, but in the last year, she shot up over Max. She sure doesn't take after me, I am height-challenged!

    Goodness look at the smiles Max had- loving the pics- and lots of awwwwwww moments there!

  8. A great time for your family! And that being said, my son and his wife work their butts off trying to keep up with my special needs granddaughter's many doc appts (120 last year) and their 4 year old. They can't afford ANY kind of vacation. sometimes, Ellen, I feel like you throw it in our faces how much stuff you all are able to do that most of us only dream of. Ski trips, country side trips, etc. and now cruising...not to mention all the workshops, that you go on to get a little time to yourself. Do you deserve it? of course, but the rest of us can only live vicariously through your adventures.

    1. I'm sorry you feel that way, PJ. I share because this is the place where I chronicle our family's life, and share inspiration and information. I really, really hope that your son and his wife will get the vacation they deserve at some point, soon.
