Simply Spectacular Disney Fantasy Christening Event

 

Wow! Triple Wow. Wishes do come true. And Disney is simply magical. Always.

What a night. After touring the new Disney Fantasy cruise ship all day long with Disney Imagineers (AMAZING!), I changed into a fancy strapless dress and met Mike for an evening of fabulousness at the Disney Fantasy Christening event.  It was simply spectacular. Tough to describe in words the incredibleness of the Fantasy Christening Celebration. Every detail was thought about and the entire evening was ripe with non-stop entertainment and decadence as only the Disney Cruise Line can provide.

All the entertainment was top secret until the moment the show began. Neil Patrick Harris was the emcee of the evening. I nearly died when he walked out on stage as I’ve adored him ever since my crush on him in Jr. High when he play Dr. Doogie Howser. He sang and danced and introduced the evenings talent. All the dance routines were very New York mixed with Disney magic which I loved – Disney has my number!

And Jerry Seinfeld was the major “comedy” act of the evening. He was unbelievable. Totally hysterical. Mike and I were dying he was so good. I’ve never experienced comedy like that and I wish we could have his stand up act every date night! His comments on public bathrooms and the miscommunications between husbands & wives had Mike and I in stitches.

Every moment just got better and better with more surprises, glitz, glam, entertainment, divine food, decadent desserts and of course lots of celebrities - from Ty Pennington to Mayor Bloomberg. Being included in this guest list of about 800 people felt like winning a lottery ticket. I’ve just never been to a party like this before. It was unreal and simply spectacular.  The need for a 24 hour babysitter so we could both attend was well worth every penny for a date night like this – a far cry from our usual dinner and a movie in the suburbs.

I loved the confetti and fanfare of it all. I felt like we were living a dream as it all rained down on us  on multiple occasions throughout the evening!

Mariah Carey was named the Godmother of the ship and popped the cork on that HUGE Champagne bottle with her blessing to let loose all that magic!

Here’s lots of great photos from the Christening Celebration  - at Animator’s Palate – a magical meal with friends and where our own drawings were literally brought to life and animated on the big screen at the restaurant all in the time between the appetizer and dessert. Food was beyond yummy too!

We dined at a table with @SavvyMommy. So wonderful to catch up with old friends!

Our desserts were divine!

The ambience was awesome. Very artistic!

Hanging with my blogger friends @FoodieCityMom @RoleMommy @Mom101 @SelfishMom and @SavvyMommy. What a night!

Post dinner Mike and I toured the ship to take a few more snapshots of the glam environment and hang out in Europa. Europa is the adult “night club” district on the ship. It is magnificent and made up of 7 different countries – and 7 areas – all themed in totally different ways to match each country. Think an Irish pub, a bubbly champagne bar, an Italian Piazza, and my favorite – the Tube – a London dance club.

Loved the dessert trays they were strolling around with in Europa along with the Light Up cocktails that glowed in the dark.

Desserts at the Tube – so very London with the red teleophone booth.

Look at this Chocolate slipper!

 

No company throws a better party then Disney – they are in the Entertainment business after all and they sure know how to create magical memories. We’ll never forget our evening at the Christening of the Disney Fantasy and I can’t thank Disney enough for including Classy Mommy.

Stay tuned for continuous coverage of the new Disney Fantasy Cruise ship on both ClassyMommy.com and Disneyed.com as I’ll posting videos and photos of my tour with Disney Imagineers yesterday and Kenzie, Kyle, Mike and I will be sailing on a preview cruise for 3 nights later this month.

  8. If you have dry skin in some other areas, attention should be given there as well.

    For instance having a nice tan on your face will hide things like wrinkles and blemishes.
    The fake tan is made to stay on for a while yes you can speed up the process but you can’t
    make it completely disappear overnight, expect to wear it for a bit
    before it goes away. Beautisol offers formulations for
    dry and oily skin. You will need to fill in a
    short questionnaire asking you about the condition of your skin. To sustain up the color,
    employ your ointment each and every three-5 days.
    To steer clear of this additional cost and also trouble, you can buy your very own spray machines, so that
    you could tan your skin layer in the comfort spot. And here is an opportunity for
    individuals who wish to have a tan physical appearance, and that may be getting through
    the use of spray tan machines which are safe to utilize and
    provides safety to your skin. The initial shade only lasts
    until taking the first shower, after the initial application of it
    was done. Its best to swim and take a bath only after the tan has completely dried out and
    has been absorbed completely.

  9. There are many offices of movers in the city of Hyderabad helping people on their home
    shifting and other kinds of relocation needs.
    In fact you may just adore the procedure of moving.
    They usually provide long distance mover provides
    services to the customer who wants it from them.

  10. Everyone needs to take a break sometimes it’s nice to know that with a reliable property manager you can actually sit back and relax while taking those breaks
    without worrying about all the particulars of the properties you own so far away.
    In general I advise to wait for an email, but if
    someone catches your eye and winks at you, go ahead and respond.
    Start with places you normally go (opera, theater, museums, SCUBA, hiking) just amp it up.

  11. With a skilled ultrasonographer, two gestational sacs,
    two embryos and two distinct fetal heartbeats can be seen six weeks after
    the first day of the last menstrual period.
    The 1000-calorie diet menu plan is not that easy; hence consult your
    dietitian or doctor before starting it. We got a brightlycolored box of cereal with
    every flavor.

  12. He will sometimes guide you with extracting a unwanted food item like fatty, oily in addition to carbohydrates.

       Once you are on the calorie restricted diet and when the body demands energy, the HCG hormone will ensure
    that that energy is released from the stored fats and not from your lean muscle mass.
    This is greatly do to the fact that eating and lifestyle choices were not in place once the weight had been eliminated.

  13. The exact same low sodium reduced fat diet plan philosophy
    is abided by. The EPT pregnancy test will normally have a test display window which will not only
    show the outcome of the test but also whether or not the test is being undertaken in accordance with the
    manufacturer. Program focus is on all round change in life-style as opposed to a short
    term eating plan modification.

  14. Essential is a good set of insulated waders as well as a hooded, waterproof coat to wear over your clothing and waders.
    Connect “A’s” positive terminal to “B’s” negative
    terminal. Here are the guild quests along with a handy location and a listing of the reward for completion.

  15. Yes! Finally something about sunfire cinema.
