    Hi Nancy! We're ready to (finally) book our cruise! Trying to decide between July 18-21 or Aug. 29- Sept. 1. Sailing on the Dream. Which would be better in your opinion crowd/weather wise? Traveling with DH, DS10, DD9, DD6, & grandma.

    Ahoy Melissa!
    It is wonderful to hear from you again!  I'm very excited that you are ready to book your magical voyage on the Disney Dream!  In my opinion the mid July date will probably be more crowded since most schools are out the month of July.  Many schools are back in session by late August so many families will already have completed their summer travel by then.  But, I wouldn't worry too much about the crowds on a Disney Cruise because it is completely different than what you experience on a land based Disney vacation.  The Disney Dream offers a wide variety of activities, entertainment, and recreation so Guests are really spread about the ship during a cruise vacation.  The weather will be similar for both dates so warm tropical temperatures will be enjoyed by your crew.  If I were you, I would look at the calendar and see which date would work best for your party of six and go with that date. 
    Thanks so much for continuing to use the Moms Panel for your cruise plans, Melissa.  Please keep me posted as you continue to prepare for your summer sail away!
    Happy Planning!
