After reading all replies and looking over the polls we officially put our deposit down today for the MAGIC!!! DH was very keen on the two separate rooms and my older DS said he could skip the aquaduct considering we will be going to Atlantis and he gets a few days at Disney before the cruise. Plus he liked everyone's comments that there would be less crowding at the pool. So our loooong count down begins. At least we go to the Disney parks in just a couple months. Thank you everyone for your help!!! Hi All, We are planning our first disney cruise. We have 3 boys that will be 3 (almost 4), 7 and 11 at the time of cruising. So we are a family of 5 We originally thought a 3 night cruise but you DISers talked me into a 4 night cruise. For the dates we'd like (Spring break week of April 2014) we are left with two options. As Follows: 1) 4 night cruise on the Disney Dream in One Category 8c Deluxe Family Ocean View State Room. 241 Square feet. Cost- $4,083.10 (less $200 On Board Credit). There are many of these available so many options for staterooms. OR 2) 4 night cruise on the Disney Magic in Two Connecting Category 10A Deluxe inside staterooms. 214 Square each, total 428 sq. feet. Cost- $3,993.10 (less $150 On Board Credit). We were able to reserve staterooms 5022 & 5024 (the secret porthole rooms) so we would have an obstructed ocean view. Which would you choose? Feel free to add comments or just vote. I would especially love comments from those that have sailed on both ships. Thanks!!!
