Most of the excursions are of no interest to us except one and of course my younger son will be a couple of months too young for it While I would love to see the island I have boys ages 10 & 7 who have zero interest in that. No surprise there. They want beach time. Oh and while my oldest wants to snorkle my youngest and I would be unable to. Disney has the Magen's Beach excursion for a price. I also keep reading about people doing the same thing for much less via taxi. My only concern is on that day something like 6 ships will be in port I really do not want to find ourselves in the midst of craziness trying to get to a decent beach and relax. Why or why not should we do our own thing or should we stick with Disney? Thanks for any advice!
