Disneyworld Nautical Boat Party

We’re going to Disneyworld for Jenna’s birthday this year, and while it  seems like everyday will be a celebration of sorts, I’m also planning a special event for Jenna’s third birthday. Disney offers many options for adding birthday festivities to your vacation (see here and here),  but I wanted something that was a bit more unique – and, more importantly, not princess themed. Jenna hasn’t yet become obsessed with pixies and princesses, and I’m going to maintain that while I can – though I realize this trip could be the turning point.

After much research, I decided to organize a private cruise for our family during the Epcot Illuminations fireworks display. J+J love fireworks, and the private boat will give us an opportunity to celebrate Jenna’s birthday away from the crowds that we’ll be enduring all week. The boat also provides a built-in theme that goes hand-in-hand with all of the nautical stripes showing up in spring fashions. So, I’ll be packing a few sailor hats, some stripey shirts, boat shoes, and, voila, a party theme that won’t clash with the safety orange life vests we’ll inevitably be wearing.
