Cruising On The Disney Magic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just got got back from Disney cruise for 8 days. Disney has some REALLY nice military discounts. Saved over 45%, couldn't pass it up and since about have the ship was filled with retirees, reservists and active duty we were in pretty good company.

I brought mostly kilts for this since there was going to be a formal night, a semi-formal and a fancy brunch. Figured why pack twice the stuff since I needed to bring all the stuff for the kilts anyways. There were a couple times I did go conventional. Part of one was my limits of hose. Doing laundry on vacation is not a vacation so there was a limit to how many changes I could do. One of those times was at Animal Kingdom in Disney World. Got a back stage tour which required us to wear harnesses. Kilts and harnesses aren't the best combination. They chafe.

Here is the first installment. Thought I'd hit the kilts first and than get to the rest a bit later. It will be a mix of Disney's and my pics.

My kilt pin for most of the cruise -

Used a clan badge with my Navy rank on it for the plaid pin from Alexis Malcolm. The sporran is a custom "rat" sporran that I had done out of nutria hide -

The rig worn to the fancy brunch. One of the restaurants on board does have an extra charge if you want to eat there for brunch or dinner but they have a higher dress code so went with more of a business casual look. This being my R'lyeh Ancient -

Outstanding! I wore mine on a British isle cruise. Nothing but compliments even when wearing it at Loch Ness.
