    I have 3 kids ages 18,16 and 7. Which vacation would you suggest? Aulani or Disney Cruise to the Caribbean?

    Ahoy, Aneshia!

    Oooo, you're visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with such a difficult question! My family and I are huge fans of vacationing at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa in Ko Olina, Hawai'i and setting sail on Disney Cruise Line cruises! Having had the opportunity to experience both of these vacation destinations and knowing the ages in your family, I would be happy to share my suggestion on which tropical vacation might suit your pirate crew best.

    Aulani is an incredible island paradise with touches of Disney magic around every corner. The restaurants, shopping and activities around the Resort would definitely keep your kids busy! With that being said, I feel sailing to the Caribbean aboard Disney Cruise Line would be the best vacation option for your family! There is so much to do onboard for you and each of your children! The Youth Clubs are a perfect hangout for your 16-year old and 7-year old. Your 18-year old would be allowed with you in the adults-only areas onboard! My family and I love having the opportunity to sail to exotic locations while experiencing all the fun, day and night, onboard the ship!

    Aneshia, when you take a Disney Cruise you can truly customize your days at sea however you want! Each day your Personal Navigator newsletter will have a schedule of activities for you to choose from. Whether you'd rather have a relaxing day lounging by the pool or go see movies in the Buena Vista Theatre after a round of miniature golf, it's all there just steps away!

    I'm wishing you nothing but tropical breezes!
