    Hi, is it worth it to buy a land-sea cruise now for January (10-17)and add the hotel when the prices come out or should I wait and buy the whole package all at once Also, chance of hurricanes at that period. Humidity level and bugs at that time?

    While a Land and Sea package offers convenience, it’s not the only way to organize a Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise vacation.

    In fact, I find booking the components of the trip separately often offers greater savings. Price it out and see which works best.

    Most of our vacations to WDW are booked without a package. See for discounts.

    Factor in whether you will have your own car, rent a car or need transfers. Disney’s Magical Express provides complimentary transport between the Orlando International Airport and the WDW resorts. Transportation to Port Canaveral can be purchased through the Disney Cruise Line.

    It’ll take a little research to figure out the best plan for your family, however your magical vacation will be worth the work. Try pricing a package or the trip components separately as 2010 rates were recently released.

    Hurricane season is June 1 to November 30. Cooler temperatures and less humidity prevails during mid January in the Caribbean. I have never had a problem with bugs during shore excursions however depending on the activity that you are considering, you may want to pack bug repellant as a preventative measure.
