    We have 3 daughters ages 11, 6 and 2 (the baby will be celebrating her 2nd b'day onboard the Disney Dream). We are very money$ conscious and want to know the most efficient & money saving way to do the cruise & WDW

    Hello and welcome to the Moms Panel!

    First, let me be the first to wish your daughter a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Your girls must be so excited about their upcoming trip.  Well, I am sure your husband and you are just as excited, too!

    I can certainly understand how money is a factor when it comes to your trip.  You want this to be a trip to remember, but you certainly do not want to be feeling the pinch for many months.  One of the nice things about a Walt Disney World Cruise is the fact that all the meals will be included in the price.  There really seems to  be no other way around it when it comes to the price.  However, in order to incorporate a WDW vacation with a cruise, I would highly recommend visiting just one park.  Considering the ages of your children, a visit to the Magic Kingdom would be the best choice.  There is so much "fantasy" around every corner and your little ones will be able to visit all the Princesses while there.  Now if your heart is set on visiting all four major theme parks, I would just stick to purchasing a four day Magic Your Way ticket with no Hopper Pass Options.  The Hopper Pass Option adds a lot to the price of your tickets.  Now don't forget to look into the Dining Plan options.  This will help you in the area of food.  I am a big fan of this.

    Now if you are planning to return to Walt Disney World real soon, I would also recommend saving the parks for that time.  The cruise will leave you with lots of new and wonderful memories and the girls will not feel as if they have missed out on anything.  

    ~Have a MAGICAL day!~
