Disney Decisions … with help from a Disney Travel Expert
There is nothing more magical than a Disney vacation with your family! But deciding what to do and where to go can be a daunting task. So which do you choose – a Disney World resort vacation or a Disney cruise?
While both offer the Disney experience we expect and enjoy, each type of vacation has its advantages. So let’s explore several categories (and tips) to help make the decision a little easier.
When staying on property at Disney World there are 5 Value Resorts, 4 Moderate Resorts, 8 Deluxe Resorts and 8 Home Away From Home Resorts. Wow 23 resorts to choose from!
Guests staying at any Disney owned resorts who are flying into the Orlando airport can take advantage of Magical Express. This complimentary service shuttles you to and from your Disney resort and the airport. There’s Disney’s Extra Magic Hours for resort guests as well. Each day one of the Disney Theme Parks opens an hour early or remains open for three additional hours exclusively for Disney resort guests. In addition, guests staying at Disney Resorts can use the buses, monorails and/or water ferries to get to their destination or park free at the parks.
From budget-friendly resort rooms to 2 bedroom villas with a view of the savannah at Animal Kingdom or a theme park view, there are many options to choose from for all budgets.
On the four Disney Cruise Line cruise ships that sail 3, 4, 5 and 7-night cruises year round, guests can choose an inside cabin (with virtual port holes!) to a suite as well as the destination and length of the cruise. Disney Cruise Line designed most staterooms with families in mind with split bathrooms making it easier for busy families to get ready for the day. For an extra treat, try a stateroom with a private balcony to give you the perfect ocean view!
TIP: When choosing a stateroom on a Disney cruise, be aware of what decks are above and below your stateroom.
