    Hi Denise,

    It sounds like you have a great trip planned!  If I read correctly, you will be spending three and a half days at Walt Disney World, then heading on a three-night cruise on the Disney Dream, followed by one and a half days back at Walt Disney World.  It sounds like a great vacation!

    When my family and I did a Land & Sea vacation like this, we did the sea part first, starting with a cruise on the Disney Dream, and followed with the land part, spending a few days at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.  We loved both parts of this vacation, but found that we were much more mellow and low-key at Walt Disney World than we typically are.  We spend a lot of time just relaxing at Bay Cove Pool.  Therefore, I would suggest that you plan on your time at Walt Disney World after your cruise as being down time to relax, and plan your days at the Disney Water Parks and Disney's Hollywood Studios before you go on your cruise.  As to whether to spend one or two days at the water park, that will depend on your family.  My family loves a day at a Disney Water Park, but I think that one day is good for my family because it does take a lot of energy to be at a water park all day, including carrying tubes and walking up stairs!

    Currently, there is a discount available for Disney Vacation Club Members at the Disney Water Parks. Disney Vacation Club members save $4 per adult, ages 10 and up, and $3 per child, ages 3 - 9, on daily admission to Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park or Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I am not aware of any current discount at the Disney Water Parks for Disney Visa cardholder.  Please do know that all discounts are subject to change.

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Denise.  Have a wonderful time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions!
