Who would have
thought, way back in 1998, that the company that brought you Mickey Mouse
and Lion King, would figure out the formula for providing award winning
cruises and designing a magical cruise experience that would keep families
coming back for more at an industry setting pace. Consider this:
Spacious cabins and suites built with families in mind - and most
feature 1 ˝ baths. Even the smallest, at 184 square feet, is well above
the industry norm of 150 square feet.
Five, distinct and amazing programs for kids 3-17. In fact, almost an
entire deck is devoted to kids and teens.
On Disney, teenagers have their own place to hang, including a private
For grown ups, there are separate, adults-only entertainment venues,
an adults -only pool, and an adults-only restaurant. Even their private
isle has a beach that's off limits to kids.
Only Disney offers "rotational dining" where you and your wait staff
move to a different dining atmosphere each night. Kids (and their parents)
The icing on the cake is Disney's unique, all-inclusive, 7-Night land
and sea packages - a vacation exclusive.
And here’s something new – Segways! – those two-wheeled,
gyroscopically-balanced personal transports – on every cruise! There are
four on each ship for passengers to try. Staff members use them on the
ship and at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
If you're concerned that the Disney Magic and Wonder are designed for the
kids and not their parents, worry no more. With adults in mind, Disney
styled its two ships after yesteryear's majestic transatlantic cruise
liners. Their mature Art Nouveau (Wonder) and Art Deco (Magic) styles,
richly appointed rooms with hand-woven rugs and polished woods maintain the
ships' romance and elegance.
That said - Disney is still very much a cruise line for kids and the
young at heart. Tightly run programs and enthusiastic staff members - not to
mention regular appearances from Mickey and the gang - keep your kids amused
and involved. And with the kids up to their mouse ears in events and
activities, your usual vacation role as Camp Counselor is history. Onboard,
there's an adults-only pool, an adults-only restaurant, and plenty of late
night entertainment geared towards grown up audiences. But though you'll
find plenty of bars and lounges onboard, Uncle Walt won't let you gamble
your money away. That's right - no casino. Trust us…you won't miss it.
In the evening you'll meet for a fun dinner and share your adventures.
Talk about quality family time! And with their rotational dining program,
you and your wait staff move each night to a different dining adventure - a
feature unique to the Disney Cruise Line. The Disney team arranges it so
that similar groups of travelers (families with young children, couples,
singles, etc.) dine together in the same rotation. As always, Disney strives
to keep everyone happy by tying up all the loose ends. Disney has it down.
In short, if you're looking for the most well rounded family cruise line
- you've found it.
Now here's another thing to think about: Disney's 7-Night Land and Sea
Mention to your kids that you're taking them along on a Disney cruise and
you can bet that they're expecting a visit to Disney World as well. And, of
course, you've got to do both. Not taking them there would be like treating
them to a trip to the candy store, showing them the light fixtures, and then
walking out. Spare yourself the headache of trying to piece together a
cruise and juggling the logistics of a theme park visit. Streamline your
purchase by choosing one of Disney's 7-Night Land and Sea Vacation packages.
Why? Because a Land and Sea Vacation gives you:
More Convenience. One call does it all
More Action. Staying at a close-in Disney resort puts you right
where you want to be
More Access. Some packages allow early park access one hour
before the general public
More fun. Park-Hopper Pass allows convenient access to multiple
parks within Disney World
More food! You have the option to include meals in your package
- a great idea if you're on a limited budget
Buying a Disney Land and Sea Vacation package offers you a unique and
seamless Disney experience.
