    we are starting to plan our first Cruise with Disney. We live in Los angeles...are the cruises that leave from LA as good as the ones from Florida? Or should we spend the extra money and fly to Florida?

    Hi Kristen!

    With cruises departing from all over the United States, the options with Disney are endless.  No matter where you choose to embark on your first cruise, you will find spectacular ships with outstanding accommodations and impeccable service.  Six and seven-night Mexican Riviera cruises are scheduled from now until April and then from the end of October until the first week of December.  In May, the Wonder will be leaving from LA cruising up to Vancouver, Canada.  In September, you will find her sailing to San Fran, San Diego and Ensenada, Mexico  Two special Hawaii sailings are scheduled to leave from LA in April & October. In the summer months, she will be in Alaska!  Check out to find out exact sailing dates and itinerary details.

    This year, the Disney Magic will be sailing from Port Canaveral as well as New York City and Galveston, TX!  These cruises range from two-nights to eight-nights. NYC departures are either Bahamian or Canada/New England Coast sailings and Galveston cruises will be a Caribbean itinerary.

    The Disney Dream sails the shorter three and four night Bahamian cruises from Port Canaveral and includes a fun-filled day on Disney's island Castaway Cay. The Disney Fantasy will join the Disney fleet in March and will sail seven-night Caribbean cruises.

    If you are looking to sail in 2013, the Disney Dream & Fantasy will continue their Bahamian and Caribbean cruise while the Magic returns to Europe and Galveston, TX,  and the Disney Wonder will call Miami and Vancouver her home ports!

     My best advice would be to navigate through the website and learn a little more about the ships and itineraries. Please let me know if you have any further questions!
