    I have a 3 year old and I am trying to decide between going to the disney world parks or doing a disney cruise... suggestions?

    Hi Halee!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   I am smiling ear to ear because you have asked a question about my two favorite things in the world,  Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Cruise Line.  Wow what a question, personally I would choose either vacation but I'll give you some pros of each and you can decide which adventure is right for your crew.

    Walt Disney World Resort is filled with magic, entertainment,  adventure and thrills.   I first took my daughter to Walt Disney World when she was three years old.  The magic that was in her eyes from the minute we entered a theme park was contagious.   I don't think I had smiled as much in my entire life.   She loved meeting the characters and riding all the attractions I had enjoyed as a child.  There was never a dull moment.   I think three years old is the perfect age for a first visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth.  The rides, sights, sounds, and smells are something your child nor you will never forget.  Walt Disney World Resort is every child's dream and I think you can't go wrong with a vacation to Orlando, Florida. 

    A Disney Cruise Line vacation is filled with relaxation,  first class dining and pampering.  You will find characters on board as well as special areas you would find in Walt Disney World such as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.   Parents can also find time away enjoying the first-class dining on board while the children enjoy the youth clubs.   All in all to me a Disney Cruise Line Vacation is more relaxing.     To experience the best of both worlds, have you thought of taking a land and sea vacation?   Spend a few days at Walt Disney World Resort and then enjoy one of the shorter 3 or 4 day cruises on the Disney Cruise Line.   What could be better?   

    No matter which adventure you choose I know your trip will be filled with magic, wonder and fantasy.   I hope you have a great day and please stop in again with any other questions you may have.   

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
