    I'm planning a trip for five to celebrate college graduation. We can't decided between cruise or parks. We are all 'Disney People', but a few of my friends have never been to the parks. I want to make sure my friends get the best Disney experience possible

    Hmmmm, Alexandria. This is a good question!

    As a bonafide "Disney person" myself I feel it is my mission in life to make sure everyone loves and enjoys the parks like I do! But I'm telling you, when I went on my first Disney Cruise I was literally jumping up and down inside the lobby because it was so fantastic. It was my first cruise ever and I said, "Why have I never done this before?" Cruising is such a fantastic vacation because it's so all-inclusive! And a Disney Cruise? Well, it combines the magic of the parks with an all inclusive vacation. It's amazing.

    The cruise is probably more restful than a vacation at the parks. I never want to stop when I'm at the parks. But the cruise? You can lounge and relax and not feel like you are missing anything. BUT you can still do as much fun stuff as you want with excursions and special events on board.

    Oh, I'm still waffling! I don't know what to say! If I only had to pick one vacation for my entire life, it would be the parks. But it just depends on what kind of vacation you want to have. All I know is whichever one you pick you will LOVE it and it will be magical!
