    Planning 1st Disney Cruise. Booked room 5520 & 5522 in 9/2012 because of good reviews and space. I have also seen that this deck is noisy from below and kids clubs on this floor. Can you tell me if this area on the boat will be a good place to stay?

    Hi, Tammie!

    Congratulations on your first Disney cruise -- that's so exciting! I've never stayed on Deck 5 of any of the three current Disney Cruise Line ships, but those staterooms are pretty much in the same location for all four. It's simply the difference of being an outside stateroom (Dream/Fantasy) versus inside staterooms (Magic/Wonder).

    I have stayed in areas which were deemed "noisy" by some cruise critics. Either my family's noisiness drowned the other out, or we just didn't have the same experience. Therefore, I would caution you about reading too much into critiques. I personally think it would be great to have the convenience of being on the same deck as the kid's clubs since my children would wander back and forth. Plus, I would love being on the same deck as the Buena Vista Theater. The only drawback which you may want to investigate further is the potential of your room being over the Walt Disney Theatre. Yet, as long as you don't try to go to bed before the last show -- I really don't see that as a problem either.

    I hope that helps! Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
