Disney Fantasy; Broadway Worthy Stage Productions

Hi friends,

Cast From Disney Fantasy’s Aladdin

I’ll never forget being transported to the Disney Cruise terminal in Port Canaveral, Florida. The rent-a-car mini-van driver was dropping off a van full of us excited cruisers to the cruise terminal. There was Carnival and Disney.

The driver asked for a show of hands who’s going to Carnival. Then he asked for the hands for the ones who were going to the floating day care center. We were shocked but remained quiet. We whispered quietly, “Obviously he’s never been on a Disney cruise.” How sad.  He doesn’t know what he’s missing.

Disney's Aladden

A Musical Number

We  enjoyed our 7-night Western Caribbean cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy. We enjoyed an array of comedy, variety shows, and Broadway-style stage performances held nightly in the  Walt Disney Theatre.  Three of these evenings were the stage performances of Believe, Disney’s Aladdin, and Wishes.

We attended Disney’s Aladdin first; we enjoyed this show so much we saw both the matinee and evening performances.

Aladdin is a stage presentation of the classic Disney animation movie Aladdin.  We enjoyed the talents of all the characters; Aladdin, the Genie, Jafar, Princess Jasmine, and the Magic Carpet; the backdrops, costumes, and stagings were stunning.

Aladdin and Genie

Aladdin and Genie

Aladdin was our favorite of the three performances.  In my opinion, the comical scenes between the Genie and Aladdin were hilarious to watch.  The Magic Carpet, in all his acrobatic glory, stole the show.  These stage productions are always one of our highlights of a Disney Cruise.

The Jungle Book Scene from Disney Wishes

The other two stage shows, Disney Wishes and Believe, were montages of many different scenes of classic Disney animation movies, including Mary Poppins, the Lion King, The Jungle Book, Lilo and Stitch, Cinderella, and others.

We also enjoyed the scenes from Tangled, I Have A Dream-included in the show Wishes; another of my favorites.

Every night is show time at Walt Disney Theatre, an elegant, 1,340-seat palace onboard the Disney Dream that is equipped with advanced theatrical technology and state-of-the-art sound, lighting, staging and set design. Premiering on the Disney Dream and headlining the musical repertoire is DisneyÕs Believe, an original stage spectacular that combines a heartfelt story about a father and daughter with a captivating musical score, a comical and insightful performance by Genie from DisneyÕs ÒAladdinÓ and appearances from more than 20 of DisneyÕs most beloved characters.

Genie and the Dad who Believed!

If you like Broadway musicals and cruising, I recommend Disney Cruises for their production shows, included in each amazing cruise experience.

The ending of the show Believe tugged at our heart  strings.  The main character, an average Dad, realized he believed in magic.  He was not too old.  He could share this joy with his daughter.

Mickey Mouse pranced onto the stage to thunderous applause; Pure Disney Magic. “All it takes is faith and trust, and a little bit of pixie dust,” and you too can Believe.

Broadway musicals are one of a host of great things that Disney Cruise Line offers on board each and every ship.

If you love Disney and you love to cruise, try tying them together in a Disney Cruise; we have.

May good fortune guide your path,

The Dunjyn Asylum Escape; Free Today

Dear SciFi Readers,

My entire life I’ve dreamed of being a writer. Several years ago I pursued that dream. I created Detective Maxx Zeqster, Sesla…The Enchanted Planet, and a lot of other characters that makes my Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases work.

The Dunjyn Asylum EscapeSesla is a magical planet within the Whirlpool Galaxy; she’s bewitched and beautiful; just as spectacular as the galaxy she dwells within. She loves and provides for her beloved animals, coteries, and plant life that dwells on her surface and in her mystical seas.

Just as the Whirlpool Galaxy is similar to the Milky Way in many ways, in many ways Sesla appears similar to a very small earth—in some ways. In other ways, she’s very different—very different indeed.

Today I’m giving away free downloads of the fourth book in my Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases series, The Dunjyn Asylum Escape. In this youth, SciFi horror book, we join Detective Maxx Zeqster as he travels to the wet lands on a daring, life-threatening, mission to find a cure for Art’s dying parents in Dunjyn Asylum. Will he be successful or will he become another doxer fever mutant?

I hope you take advantage of my free offer and meet Detective Maxx Zeqster, Art Nekuma, and many of the other characters including the Mad Scientist; Dr. Myro Rewqust at Qashlet Lab.

Rydon’s Fall — Book Review

Greetings from Sesla,

It’s J.A. Ireland. It’s good to talk with you again. A lot has happened since I last wrote. Kinkorx is a bustling metropolis with a lot going on.

The Horned Hares are improving again and Maxx Zeqster has another assignment. He and his partner, Art Nekuma are working on the Maladroit Bomber case. Knowing Maxx the way I do, it won’t take them long to find the bomber.Rydon's Fall Book Cover on Kindle

I just completed my latest Maxx Zeqster Creepy Cases novel. This book is about Art’s father, Rydon Nekuma, and his plights. He was a sailor in Tos-Xiron with gambling issues. He’s in a bad place now—Dunjyn Asylum; a doxer fever victim and mutating.

I have a picture of his rented schooner on the book cover. He used it for fishing—when the weather allowed. Apparently, the frequent storms at Tos-Xiron added to his problems. Gambling didn’t help either.

If you would like to read his tragic story; my novel is available on Kindle. It’s free in the lending library. Occasionally I’ll give away downloads of my novels for a day. Watch for the specials on this blog, facebook, and twitter, then download all my novels—Free. If you take advantage of the free downloads; after reading the book, write a brief review.

I hope you’ll  read all of my novels and learn more about Sesla; my home, in the Whirlpool Galaxy. It’s nice to talk with you. Until we talk again.

May good fortune guide your path,

Ever since I wrote Sesla…The Enchanted Planet, I’ve been dissatisfied with the name and other things. It’s been on my to do list for some time  to improve certain areas of the novel.  Recently, I made it a priority and corrected the issues that bugged me.The Unthinkable Duo of Justice on Kindle

I’d like to share my friend Maxx Zeqster, and his unlikely partner, Art Nekuma, with you.  My new novel introduces Maxx,  Art, and Sesla. I’ve chosen the name, The Unthinkable Duo of Justice. This name, along with the new cover, fits the story perfectly.
