If you don't wanna miss too much school, it's a good solution. I believe you can make the best of it if you pick your priorities and don't expect to do everything. I'd pick a very short excursion in Nassau or would stay on the ship and just get off at Castaway Cay.Hoping to experience a 3 day Disney Cruise next year. We're a 2 hour flight away from Florida, and would do a long weekend with 3 elementary-aged kids. Is this enough time to enjoy the cruise? Or should we go for a longer period of time.
It depends on your goal. I would do it for the above reasons - a great rate, living near the port, and just wanting to do a little fun Disney magic. Kind of like going to WDW for a day.We have our first 3-night cruise booked next month. It will be our 7th Disney cruise but first on the Fantasy. We're worried that 3-nights will feel too short, but it's not our annual vacation, it's just a quick getaway that requires us to only take one day off and was a great deal with the Florida resident rate. I hope that going into this with that mindset, we'll be able to enjoy it for what it is.
Yes, you can certainly enjoy a 3-night cruise. We're a 2.5 hour flight from Orlando & Miami, and have enjoyed two 3-night cruises, one of which was our first cruise. I also have a solo 3-night cruise booked for the end of this month, and am looking forward to it.Hoping to experience a 3 day Disney Cruise next year.

Yes! We live in South Jersey and it was an easy train ride from Hamilton Station and then taxi to the port. Very stress free. It was just our younger ds and myself; he was 12 then. Older ds was 15 at the time. He and dh felt it was too short so why bother. I took a Friday off and we had a wonderful weekend with lots of pictures sailing past the Statue of Liberty. Camera flashes were flying in both directions. It was nice to be able to book another placeholder too. Following the map channel, it looked like we sailed south to approximately VA Beach then turned around back to NYC. I would totally do it again.I did a 2 night cruise from NYC, it was fabulous. But I lived in North jersey and it was a quick drive to the port. Worth every minute.
