    Should we do Caribbean Cruise or Disney World? 11 yo boy + 8 yo girl. We did Disney World twice (2 and 4 yrs ago now). Looking for something fun that will keep them entertained :) Boy nervous so won't do much solo. Want long vaca - 7+ days :) THX!

    Hi Pamela! Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your little buccaneers are at such an exciting age for Disney vacations! What lucky kiddos to have visited the Walt Disney World Resort twice already! It sounds like they are huge fans of Walt Disney World so I can only imagine how excited they'd be setting sail with Captain Mickey!

    Have you ever considered taking a land and sea vacation? Since your family enjoys vacations over seven days, why not take a 7 Night Caribbean Cruise and couple it with a few nights at the Walt Disney World Resort? Or, start your vacation off playing in the parks before sailing the high seas? It seems you already know what exciting things the parks have to offer, so let me tell you a few reasons why your family might enjoy cruising!

    There is so much to do onboard! There are movies, Broadway-calibur musicals, incredible restaurants, multiple pools, Youth Clubs as well as entire areas of the ship dedicated to adults-only, all just steps away from your stateroom! Plus, pretty much everything is included in the price of your cruise with the exception of a few optional activities that are an additional charge! If your son is a little nervous to go out on his own, the Youth Clubs have an open house when parents are invited to join the kids while they explore the club! You will get a Personal Navigator newsletter in your stateroom each evening with a schedule of activities for the following day to keep your entire family entertained!

    If you decide to do a land and sea vacation, Disney Cruise Line offers ground transportation (for a nominal fee) from your Walt Disney World Resort or the Orlando International airport to the Cruise Terminal at Port Canaveral and back again. It makes arriving to and from your cruise so easy!

    Whichever vacation you choose, please visit us again with any other questions!
