    Sailing in Jan 2018 on the Dream and wondering if the Atlantis Aquaventure is worth the price for kids. I have a 11 yr old and a 8 yr old. I thought they might like the water park, but it is pricey. Would they have more fun on the boat?

    Ahoy, Kellie!

    I'm thrilled to welcome you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your cruise aboard the Disney Dream next January will be a great way to start off the year! I really enjoy taking cruises in January because the weather is warm during the day, but a little cooler at night. It makes cozying up under a blanket in the evenings on deck while watching a classic Disney movie on Funnel Vision so much fun!

    In my opinion, your kids would have a splashtacular time during the Atlantis Aquaventure. If they are little fish and love the water, there are so many cool water attractions offered during this Port Adventure. When I went on this excursion with my niece, she had a blast shooting down the slides and playing in the water playground. The Atlantis Paradise Island resort also has this incredible underground aquarium that Guests on this excursion are welcome to explore, too! We had a wonderful day while on this Port Adventure!

    If you and your sea guppies would rather stay onboard and ride the AquaDuck or splash in Mickey's Pool, you're going to have a fun time! Check out your Personal Navigator newsletter or Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to see all the activities planned at the pool deck and around the ship!

    You asked a tough question regarding whether or not your kiddos would have more fun staying onboard the ship. Captain Mickey and his friends pack each day full of fun! Whether you choose to stay onboard or book the Atlantis Aquaventure, I'm sure your kids will have a wonderful time! If you have any other questions before next January, please come and visit us again! We are thrilled to help you plan an unforgettable cruise!
