Disney Cruise Alaska Adventure #24: A Disney Cruise – It’s not just for kids! Part 2

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Last week I posted my layout featuring Palo restaurant and described some of the adults-only entertainment on board Disney cruise ships. This week I will continue that same theme with a layout featuring some of the character snapshots we took onboard as well as some of the restaurant fun!  I am saving the very best character photos for my very last post of my Alaskan cruise which will be in a couple weeks.  I am super excited to share those with you so stay tuned this month!

Disney Cruise Scrapbook Layout - Character Meets

So, not to repeat myself too much but Disney cruises are for adults too.  Now if you don’t enjoy goofing around and having napkins put on your head by the wait staff then maybe it wouldn’t be for you.  But we love all of that.  On this cruise I loved how the wait staff transformed my husband into a desert sheik.  Such great napkin art!  I had a brief Minnie look-alike moment with a big bow on my head.  Even without little kids in tow I still love the character breakfasts.

I think Disney has the towel & napkin art done to perfection.  On this trip we noted that with the exception of a monkey our towel animals were Alaskan themed.  We had this great lobster – look at those masterful folds!  We also had a super cute bear which did not make it on this layout. I always look forward to seeing the towel animal of the day when we return to our rooms in the evening.

Placing these fun imperfect snapshots into Pocket style scrapbooking layouts made this layout super fast and easy.  I left the photos “as-is” – no editing to keep a playful feel.  I especially love how the scratched hand-drawn circles, playful typewriter font and messy overlays add to the playfulness of the layout. Hand drawn elements, doodles & chalkboards can really add playfulness and movement to a layout. Again I used journal cards from Project Mouse by Sahlin Studio & Britt-ish designs. I used some fun neon colored overlays by Sugarplum Paperie to liven up the page.

See you next week with some more character pages!  Please share in our comments thread any goofy moments or special character meetings that you enjoyed while cruising Disney style – we would love to hear about them!

    I think Disney is the most magical gift a parent can give their kids – at least in our American ideal fantasy. Packaging a piece of that in a cruise is a double fantasy. I’d love to experience this with my kids – definitely putting it on the bucket list.
