One of our all-time favorite vacation destinations is Disney – Land, World, Cruise, Hawaii – doesn’t matter. We LOVE Disney. Starting about 10 years ago, we’ve made at least one vacation a year a Disney vacation. We’re members of the Disney Vacation Club and love to share our knowledge and interests with our friends. So, if you have any questions at all, please let me know and I’ll be happy to answer them for you!
This year our vacation will be a Disney Cruise. We are going along with two friends that we met on our first Disney Cruise about 6 years ago. Neither of us have kids and we thought it would be fun to see what kind of trouble we could all get into together. One of the most fabulous things about the Disney Cruiseline is how they have everything set-up. Part of the ship is mostly for Littles – Part for Families – Part for Adults Only. Each group has it’s own pool and snack areas. So if your kids are at the Kid’s Club (which most kids seems to adore) you and your spouse can go sit at the adult pool, listen to the live music and enjoy a drink. But, if you want to spend pool time with your kids you can all go to the family pool and watch movies on the big screen they have there while you swim.
Disney also has fabulous dinner shows! This is one of the things I’m most looking forward to doing on our trip. We always get 2nd dinner, so we see our show first, then have a little time before dinner. I’m amazed at how they can pull some of these amazing shows off while sailing on a ship. The costumes and make-up are totally up to Disney quality and equal or better than things you’d see in the Parks.
The best part of most Disney Cruises is the visit to Disney’s private island – Castaway Cay. We’ve been on one cruise that sailed out of Galveston that didn’t hit this port of call and we really missed it – This year it’s back on the agenda!!! The island is set-up a lot like the ship. Areas for teens, areas for families and areas for adults only. It’s super clean and the water is beautiful. When we first went, one of the prop ships from the Pirates of the Caribbean was parked right off the ship as we docked. I’ve heard it is no longer there…
You’ll be hearing more about Disney from me in the future since it’s one of my favorite things to talk about and if you have any questions, please post them in the comments and I’ll be happy to answer them.
