    1st Time Cruisers+combining w/ WDW MLK wknd! 4day cruise to Bahama's...should we do WDW before or after? Thinking WDW before so we could have the relaxing cruise to recoup. Or am I thinking about the cruise all wrong? Are they as exhausting as WDW???

    Welcome aboard, Mindy! You are thinking the same way I do! My family loves to enjoy the parks before we cruise so that we have that relaxing sailing to wind down after our whirlwind trip to the parks. 

    Now, I say relaxing because there are so many opportunities to just live in the moment, be present with your family and enjoy down time. However, if you're up for more excitement, there is no lack of that on Disney Cruise Line either. Be sure to check your Personal Navigator each day. This is the schedule of the events and activities that will go on around the ship all day and night. We like to bring different colored highlighters for each member of our family so that we can highlight our favorite activities and plan for the next day. The nice thing about Disney Cruise Line is that there are so many family activities for when your whole family wants to have fun together. But, there are also unlimited adults-only activities for you to enjoy while your kids have the time of their lives with the amazing counselors in the Youth Clubs. 

    There is truly something for everyone every hour of the day, and when you're ready to do absolutely nothing but relax and enjoy the view, I promise that you'll discover new spots around the ship to do just that every single day.

    Have fun as you plan, and please let me know if I can help with anything else before you set sail!
