    We are taking our first Disney Cruise in August on the Disney Dream! We have two boys ages 5 and 2 1/2. We are unsure if we need to bring a car seat for the shuttle bus from the airport to the cruise ship? Also, should we bring a stroller?Thank you!

    Hi, Patricia!

    Congratulations on your first Disney Cruise vacation this summer -- you are going to love sailing on the Disney Dream! That ship will make you think you're living a dream!

    From what I remember, the Disney Cruise Line motorcoaches which transport guests back and forth between the Orlando International Airport and the Port Canaveral Cruise Terminal do not have seat belts. Therefore, you will not need car seats.

    I would consider bringing a lightweight stroller for your youngest son -- more for the ports of call than for the ship.  The Disney Dream is a huge ship, but I think that strollers tend to be more trouble than they're worth for toddlers. Sometimes, you need for your little ones to run the length of the long halls or climb the stairs in order to make sure they sleep well at night!

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
