    Hello just wondering if the Disney Dream Cruise will be a nice birthday surprise for a 10 year old girl. I am debating between Disney Cruise and Disney World we have never been to either. Please provide me with your honest opinion. Thanks so much!

    Welcome aboard, Raven! My daughter is ten years old and if I were to surprise her with a cruise on the Disney Dream, she would be incredibly thrilled! She adores sailing with Disney, and has said over and over that it is her favorite kind of vacation. Not only will your daughter have lots of family fun with you, but she will get to meet new friends with exciting activities all day and night in the Youth Clubs, and you can enjoy the fabulous Adult Exclusive entertainment and activities. When you sail with Disney Cruise Line, there is truly something for everyone!

    My daughter also loves visits to Walt Disney World, but she very much prefers the cruises because it allows her to not only spend lots of quality family time with activities, shows, water fun, Port Adventures, and fabulous dinning, but she really enjoys the independence of being able to head to the Youth Clubs without Mom and Dad for some super exciting fun!

    Will she miss out on rides since you wouldn't be at the parks? No way! Did you know that the Disney Dream offers a water coaster at sea? The AquaDuck is a super fun way to spend time onboard while spending time on the amazing pool deck! You'll enjoy the convenience of having so much included in the cost of your vacation.

    If you're still debating between the parks and a cruise, you may consider a Land and Sea vacation with one or two days at one of the Walt Disney World Resorts with park tickets before you set sail. Disney even offers optional ground transfers between the resorts and the cruise port, so it's super easy, Raven! Have fun deciding and stop back with other questions! We are happy to help as you consider this birthday surprise for your princess!
