Kids love the disney cruise more than disney world!

Just got off the magic and the kids had so much fun that they decided they would rather go on another disney cruise instead of going to disney world next year.

So, we took advantage of the OBB and just booked a Caribbean out of port canaveral for thanksgiving 2014. So excited! Ports include san Juan, st. Maarten and castaway cay.

I'm still shocked that my princess loving 5 year old would rather be on the Mickey ship instead of eating in cinderella's castle on thanksgiving day.

This was surprisingly true about my kids as well. After their first cruise in 2009, they were completely hooked.

Don't get me wrong, they won't turn down a WDW trip (we are going in August 2013), but they inevitably ask now "Are we going to go on the cruise too?" Not this time I told them, but our next DCL is August 2014.

Wow...I am interested in my families reaction too. Our first ever cruise is only a 3 night Bahamas on the Dreams, so I really hope it is enough to get everyone hooked! Our three DD's are going to be 9,7,5 and I really hope they love it!

Now if only I could just stop worrying about me being seasick! I don't have a very good track record, but have never been on a cruise 'ship'. Hopefully it will be different!

We have videos of all 4 WDW parks and the cruise line. DD loves to watch the cruise line - rarely any of the others. In fact, today's a snow day and I think it's been on almost continuous this afternoon!

ditto here....my daughter took her first Disney cruise at age four in 2007...in August she'll be 10YO for the fifth...

she always asks "what do you like better- Disney World or Disney Cruise?"...for her DCL is the resounding answer and when i say Disney World she gives me ten reasons why i should like DCL better...

We loved our cruise so much that none of us even want to try WDW.

My DD, 7 at the time of our 1st dream cruise last sept, & she did not want to leave the ship! (I don't blame her - I didn't want to leave either

She loved the clubs, especially the last night, because she got a little backpack & the projects they worked on & she said they had a bunch of character greetings!

She is counting down the days til our next cruise this September

I get extreme motion sickness so I took bonine starting with the first morning we boarded. We had some rough water at various times and I never got seasick.

Grand chrildren 11 and 15 loved it, if their mother had not made them come to dinner we would only seen them until clubs closed at 1:00 am. They have both been to WDW more that 8 times have no interest in going back. Did Smokey Mountains last summer. Hosreback riding, zip lines, white water rafting, playing in rivers in park. All the things WDW does not do.

My kids were upset when we announced that we were going to WDW last May. My nine year old said, "Why are you spending the money we could use to go on a Disney cruise?" Lucky him, our next cruise is now booked.

My kids were exactly the same. Our Trip of a lifetime has now turned into.... Another Disney Cruise LOL. Booked for Panama Canal 2014. The budget is tight so we can get there from New Zealand!

DD#10 had the same reaction to our cruise last month. I have a surprise trip to WDW booked for August and now I almost don't want to tell her about it..........I expect to hear something like, "Could we go on a cruise instead?"
