    would like to take family on a land/sea vacation but would like more that 3 or 4 days for land part of vacation is this possible as 3 or 4 days is just not long enough at the parks for us

    Absolutely. It's difficult for our family to only allow 3 or 4 days at Walt Disney World when also planning a 3 or 4 night cruise. Despite our love of the ocean, we seem to want extra days on land. Maybe it's because we all enjoy different parts of WDW and need the time to get to our favorite attractions!

    Here are some ways to create more time at Walt Disney World.

    1- book the cruise and land portions of your trip separately. I've used this method several times not only to add more WDW days but also to save money. For example, booking a higher category stateroom on the cruise ship but a value resort at WDW. Once, we spent a few days pre-cruise at WDW, went on a 3 night cruise and then went back to the WDW resort for additional nights.

    2- book the land and sea package. Then, separately book extra WDW hotel nights post-cruise. Magic Your Way tickets are valid for 14 days from day of first use.

    3- call your travel agent or the Disney Cruise Line and ask to add extra nights to your package. The WDW portion is pre-cruise when booking a Land-Sea package.

    Best wishes for a magical vacation!
