    My husband and I are planning a Disney vacation with our 2 year old son. We are planning to travel the week after Thanksgiving, then, our son will be 2 1/2 years old. Would you suggest we travel to Disney World or on the Disney Cruise Line?

    Hello fellow Texan!

    This question took me back to a few years ago when my husband and I were dealing with the very same dilemma.  It is so hard to choose one over the other, and you really can’t go wrong with either choice. Thankfully, we came to the perfect solution for this conundrum:  do both!  

    Seeing Walt Disney World Resort through the eyes of a child is truly a magical experience in its own rite. With so much to do for the little guy, you and your family will have a wonderful time.  In Magic Kingdom Park, he can soar on Dumbo the Flying Elephant, in Epcot, he can explore the big blue world in The Seas with Nemo and Friends, in Disney's Hollywood Studios, he can visit his favorite Disney Junior friends and in Disney's Animal Kingdom park, he can come close to his favorite, exotic animals in Kilimanjaro Safaris. And of course, there are countless of recreational activities available to add to the fun too! 

    Now, add a little Disney Cruise Line magic and prepare yourself for the perfect vacation.  It is a wonderful and relaxing trip, and there is something for everyone in the family!  At that age, my son loved spending time in the kids splash zone, and he loved the sights and sounds of the amazing Broadway-caliber Disney shows that are onboard!  Combine that with deck parties, character experiences, amazing rotational dining, wonderful destinations and Port Adventures, and available babysitting services (for an additional charge for children under 3), and you have an unforgettable experience.

    I could go on and on here but, there’s not enough space.  The week after Thanksgiving is a great time to travel and you will be pleased with whatever decision you make!   If you have any further questions or need any additional information, let us know!
