Disney’s Cruise Is What We All Need Right Now

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

For passionate Disney fans, taking a cruise with your favorite mouse is old news. Disney has been embarking on oceanic journeys for several years already.  But recently, they’ve added a new destination, and not one that you would generally expect.

Passengers who board from the trip that leaves from Pacific Northwest will be the very first to experience a Disney Cruise that sails to Astoria, Oregon.  This coastal side located between Youngs Bay and the Columbia river is well known for it’s endless attractions, and Disney will make sure that passengers have the best possible experience, seeing only the best spots.

Astoria is also popular for it’s magnificent scenery, and even it’s exploded volcano with remains offering some brutal beauty.  What’s most exciting however for Disney fans is the role that Astoria serves in Hollywood, with many studios using the town as a place to film.  You will surely recognize many landmarks from your favorite Hollywood classics, such as The Goonies and Free Willy.
