5 Reasons to Book a Disney Cruise Today!



I'm just returning from a marvelous 4 day cruise to the Bahamas aboard the fabulous Disney Wonder as part of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. The Disney Wonder is one of the ships in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. It was our very first cruise and I was not disappointed. Disney does what it does best, captivate and illuminate your senses. So why am I telling you to book your own Disney Cruise today? Because I don't want you to miss out on the awesomeness that is a Disney Cruise. Here are my top 5 reasons.


Exclusive Character Meet and Greet
While you can obviously do a meet and greet with the characters at any of the many Disney parks, there is something to be said for Minnie or Mickey dressed in their nautical outfits. On board a Disney Cruise Line is the only place you can get such an experience. Be sure to consult with your Disney Cruise Line app for the times when they will be available. However, if you want to meet the Frozen characters and the Disney Princesses, appointments will need to be made. These can be done before your cruise or while on board as long as there is availability.



Fine Dining
Ok, Disney is known for their characters, but they're also known for their fine dining. Just check out Epcot, but this isn't about Epcot. Their onboard restaurants feature some amazing culinary choices as well, and it doesn't just stop at the food, their in-house restaurant entertainment is spectacularly dazzling. If you're on board the Disney Wonder, be sure to check out Tiana's Place (as in The Princess and the Frog), known for their southern hospitality and charm, the food is amazing. You can get up close to Tiana and she even gets off stage to interact with her guests. The waiters are friendly and they all aim to please, so when you leave, you feel like you're leaving family behind. They're just that great!

If fine dining isn't your thing and all you want are Mickey Bars (you know the ones you get addicted to while at Disney Parks), you can eat as much as you can, because they're FREE on board a Disney Cruise.




Exclusive Shows
Spectacular Broadway style shows are in store for you. Shows such as Beauty and the Beast (Disney Dream), Frozen (Disney Wonder) and so much more. Each ship have their own exclusives. Have you ever heard of the "Golden Mickey"? Unless you've been aboard on one of Disney's ship, you're probably wondering what is that? Think the Oscars but for Disney's Cruise Line. It's a Hollywood style show that is exclusive to the cruise line and it immerses you into most of Disney's famous characters, complete with red carpet pre-show. At the end you have a chance to even grab a few Golden Mickey's yourself and maybe even pick you up your own Golden Mickey to commemorate the show.


Activities for You and Your Family
Now sometimes you want some time for yourself as an adult even though you're with family. With salons and spas, you can take some time off and you won't even need to worry about your kids. Disney cruises comes complete with youth clubs for the kids. With "It's a Small World Nursery" (6months - 3years) or the "Oceaneer Club" (3yrs - 12yrs), parents can leave their little ones behind knowing that they'll be cared for and entertained by Disney counselors. Security is their top priority and your kids are probably safer there than anywhere else. As a matter of fact kids very rarely want to leave. If the spa or salon isn't quite your style, feel free to take a dip in the pool or hot tub, or maybe spend some quiet time in their adult only lounge. There's also a sports and fitness center for those still thinking about their body image while on vacation.



Sun, Sand and Sea
Last but certainly not least, Sun, Sand and Sea. Or if you would prefer snow there's a cruise for that too. Since I took one to the Bahamas, I'm going to focus on Disney's private island the Castaway Cay. Tired of Old Man Winter and want a getaway to somewhere exotic? Then Disney's Castaway Cay is the perfect place for you. With lots of activities to keep you and your little ones occupied, there's something for everyone. Sign up for the 5K or even take a bike ride around the island, get on a catamaran and enjoy a nice casual sail, or how about even getting up close to a stingray? Just want to relax, then you can do that as well, and when you're done, enjoy some shopping that is exclusive to the island. And don't forget the fresh fruit! Disney's Castaway Cay is the Caribbean island adventure you've been waiting for and perfect for families.





So whether you're looking for a nice vacation with the family, or maybe you just want to get away, explore somewhere new or just relax, booking a Disney Cruise Line vacation can do that all for you. Just sit back, relax and be catered on hand and foot. With not a care in the world, the only thing you have to worry about is getting back to reality when it's all over. So what are you waiting for? Book your own Disney Cruise Line vacation today!

  2. I never had much interest in one, but the other day my little one asked us to go on one, so now I am reconsidering. Maybe next year.

  4. I'm so envious that you got to go! But, it sounds like you had an unbelievable time! I think seeing the Disney characters in their nautical outfits would be a major perk for my family!

  5. Shows and fine dining! Madison is a lucky kid!
    We've never been on a cruise. The longest I've ever been on a boat was five hours. I was fine but Cassidy gets claustrophobic more about boats than planes. If I were to do a cruise, it would be this for sure. And then without kids, an Alaska cruise. BOOM.

  12. I've been to Disneyland and Disney World but have yet to take a cruise. I've heard only good things about them and I'm sure my kiddos (8 and 3) would adore it. I've never heard of the Golden Mickey Awards though, fun!

  26. I have to say, my husband and I went on a cruise together and even though we didn't have the kids, we still struggled to have fun. Unless you were the partying type that was the boat for you. We remember being parked next to a Disney ship and both of us saying, we are going on a Disney cruise next time, haha!

  27. Anything Disney is a memorable experience. Disney cruises are the best for families. Sometime soon when my grandchildren are old enough to appreciate it, I will be taking them on their first Disney cruise.

  30. I'm convinced this cruise looks like it has something for everyone of any age. The food looks delicious. The daycare seems perfect for a couple with kids.
