An 8-Year-Old on the Disney Dream

Indulge me, if you would, for a moment. Well, really for about three minutes. As I mentioned in my post on Tips for First-Time Cruisers, I was on the inaugural sailing of the Disney Dream last month. I decided to take my 8-year-old-niece along to see what she thought of the ship since, of course, kids and families are very important to Disney Cruise Line’s bottom line.

She loved the ship — as did I — and it was a treat to see it through her eyes. This video is just a few of her favorite parts of the trip.

My name: Genevieve Shaw Brown. I also answer to Genny and Gen.

How I earn my keep: I work at Travelocity.

Greatest travel lesson learned: I travel for my job, but I've learned work is work, vacation is vacation, and it's best not to try and do both on one trip.

Fondest travel memory: There are so many... but a recent experience was being totally jet-lagged and waking up pre-dawn in Koh Samui, Thailand, and watching the sun rise with my husband on the beach. We talked about what all our friends and family were doing at that very same moment as the sun set back home in New York.

First thing I do in a new place: Peruse the local restaurants and map out my dining strategy for the duration of my trip. Dining strategy = eating at as many restaurants as humanly possible.

First thing I do when I get home: Put a push pin on the destination I just returned from on the map of the world that hangs on the wall above my couch.

Travel ambition: To cover that map completely in push pins.

My most beloved place in the whole world: Cockle Cove Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts.



Too cute!


We are not long returned from a Disney trip.

It was magical for 3 little girls.

Disney does everything so professionally.

Thank you for sharing.
