    Hello there! We have a 3 weeks Disney trip planned for July 2024. We want to stay at a WDW resort at our arrival to Orlando, then go to Disney cruise and finally return to a WDW resort again. How should I do this hotel booking? Thanks a lot!!

    Hey there, Maria!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're so happy you've stopped by with a fabulous Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! An adventure aboard Disney Cruise Line bookended by stays at The Most Magical Place on Earth... does it get any better than that!? Maria, I'd be thrilled to assist you in planning your perfect land-and-sea getaway.

    A Disney Land and Sea vacation combines the best of two outstanding vacation types: sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line and enjoying theme park thrills at the Walt Disney World Resort! An extended three-week-long stay split between the high seas and The Most Magical Place on Earth sounds like a dream come true, Maria. I'm happy to inform you that you may book your Disney Land and Sea vacation by reaching out to your travel agent or by contacting the friendly Cast Members at Disney Cruise Line via phone. Even if you've already booked the cruise portion of your vacation, these individuals will be able to assist you with adding on Disney Resort hotel reservations and theme park tickets. You may even be able to add airfare and ground transportation to your booking!

    Maria, be sure to check out whether any special offers for Resort hotel reservations or vacation packages are available during your travel dates. This information may help you decide whether you purchase theme park tickets for the period before or after your sailing (or both!). I encourage you to consider staying at two different Disney Resort hotels before and after your cruise. A "split-stay" will allow you to experience variety in the dining offerings, recreation, and atmosphere between two different Resort hotels! For example, you could stay at Disney's Wilderness Lodge ahead of your sailing, then cruise to a tropical oasis, and end your trip with a stay at Disney's Riviera Resort. It'd be like circumnavigating the globe!

    I hope you've found these suggestions helpful, Maria. If you have questions specific to Disney Cruise Line, consider reaching out directly to my panelist pal, Tracie, as she has lots of experience with Disney Land and Sea vacations! You're welcome to stop by planDisney again anytime for any additional planning questions you might have. We're all ears!

    SEA ya real soon,
