    Hi Panel! im looking at booking the pirate adventure cruise for my daugter (7) is there any difference between the 4 cruises from the different resorts - im struggling to decide which one to choose - we are staying at AKL

    Hello, Gina,

    The Pirate Adventure Cruises are such a great adventure for children.  In fact, on our last trip to Walt Disney World a couple of weeks ago, my husband and I watched one of the cruises returning to shore. It was just too cute for words seeing the excited children arriving with all the stories to tell their parents about their adventure.  

    While I think all of the locations will provide your daughter with loads of fun, I think the Disney's Pirate Adventure that departs from the marina of the Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is a good match because of the convenience of the location.  With this resort being right next to the Magic Kingdom, it makes it easy to use Disney transportation if you don't have your own car.  You can leave your resort for the Magic Kingdom then hop on the boat or resort monorail to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  While your daughter is on the cruise, the resort has several stores for a little shopping. You can also grab a quick bite to eat at Gasparilla Island Grill or a coffee at Mizner's Lounge. It also has one of the loveliest lobbies, so you can settle in for some relaxation and people watching. I also think it is treat for children to get to see the Magic Kingdom from the water; it really takes on a different appearance. They will also visit both the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake, so they will get to see quite a bit of the area. 

    However with all that in mind, if you opt to go with another one, it will still be an incredible and memorable adventure for your daughter!  -Kara
