    How do the cruises compare with going to the parks? Planning a vacation for 2014 and debating on which would be good....parks again (we LOVE the parks) or a cruise!

    Ahoy Ashley!
    My family loves visiting the Disney Parks as well, but cruising with Disney is our favorite way to vacation. Once you board the ship, you will be spoiled and pampered by the amazing crew who bring the magic to life each day to every Guest!  The ships are stylish and elegant with a touch of whimsy and have so much for offer! I don't know the ages of your children, but if they are between the ages of 3-17, they will be able to take advantage of the best youth programming on the high seas!  The trained counselors plan activities that inspire and entertain which will allow you an opportunity to have a world to your own as Disney has many adult-only activities and areas of the ship to enjoy!  If you enjoy dining at the Disney Parks, the exclusive rotational dining experience will immerse you in three different dining rooms that all have their own story to tell!  Your dining servers will take care of all your dining needs each evening while they rotate along with you!  The Disney Culinary Crew goes above and beyond to serve tasty cuisine at all the dining locations onboard!  At night, you will be entertained by a talented group of performers who bring Disney stories to life in the stunning Walt Disney Theatre!  If you have an active crew, recreation is available on the pool deck, sports deck and of course, ashore on the fabulous Port Adventures!  Character experiences are also plentiful with many "meet & greet" opportunities available throughout the day, and you never know who you might run in to in the hallway! 
    I could keep on going, but I'm about out of room, Ashley!  I'd love to answer more questions for you so please write back!  Also, if you haven't done so already, please request the Free Disney Cruise Planning DVD so you can begin planning your first magical voyage!
