    Hi! I was wondering if we could do a 4 day park vacation at Disney World, then cruise for a 4 day Disney Cruise? And if so how does that all work? Do I book them separately? Help!!! Thank you!

    Howdy Holly!
    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  I'm so glad you are here because I am happy to help you with your plans for a magical surf and turf Disney vacation!  There are two suggestions I have for booking your WDW stay and cruise.  Disney Cruise Line does offer Pre- or Post-Cruise add-ons that can include a resort stay, park tickets and ground transportation to Port Canaveral.  The first step you should take is to choose a cruise date and a WDW resort.  When that is decided give Disney Cruise Line at call at (800) 951-3532 and speak with a Cruise Reservation Agent about booking your cruise.  The agent can reserve your cruise for you as well as add-on the resort stay, park tickets and ground transportation. 
    If you decide you would like to include the Dining Plan for your WDW stay, you will need to book your land and sea vacations separately. Unfortunately, the Pre-Post Cruise add ons can't include the Dining Plan.  Once you have reserved your vacations separately (either online or by calling), you will be able to link your two reservations by calling Disney Cruise Line and letting them know you will be staying at the WDW resort either before or after your sailing.  This is helpful especially if you still plan on purchasing the ground transportation vouchers. 
    If you haven't already, I would spend some time looking at the cruise videos on to get an good idea of what to expect on your sailing!  Also, you can order a free cruise planning DVD as well. 
    I hope my answer helps with your planning, Hollie!  Please stop back by if you need any assistance with your vacation plans!
