Disney Magic Cruise with Lou and Tinker Bell

Cruise with Lou Mongello and Margaret Kerry (yes, the same Tinker Bell that you just saw on your new Peter Pan Special Edition DVD) on the Disney Magic! Join us for special events, Pirate costume contests, tons of free giveaways, private dining, extra fun things to do Castaway Cay, treasure hunts, trivia games, live podcasting from the ship, where you can help be a part of the show, charity fundraising events to benefit the DWT Dream Team and the Starlight Children’s Foundation, and so much more! Everyone who books as part of our group will get special pixie-dusted items in cabins.

One of the things I’m happy to finally be able to announce is that at many of these events, you can participate and earn KEYS, end of cruise, one of your keys could open a huge treasure chest filled with incredible Disney Surprises and Merchandise!

There will be LOTS of things we have planned just for kids, too, including a special treat from Captain Jack Sparrow, treasure hunts, and more!

Everyone who books by June 1, 2007 will receive a very unique surprise before the cruise. During a wonderful, private event we have planned as we set sail, we will have a very special, very fun-filled drawing at a private event where one person will win a $500 Disney Gift Card that you can use on board! Of course, if you have already booked on the cruise, you will also receive the surprise and be eligible to win, so no worries!
