  • Hi there, My husband and I are so excited to be planning a trip in July for his 40th and our son's 1st birthday---on the same day! We just are not sure which would be the best with our little one along, the Disney cruise, or Walt Disney World Resort.

  • Hi Kate,

    How sweet that your husband and son share a birthday - that is certainly a day worth celebrating somewhere really special!

    I'll be totally honest and tell you that I have found the Disney Cruise experience to be one of the easiest vacations you can take with a little one.  Imagine all of the magic, wonder, fun and excitement of Walt Disney World - but without having to navigate transportation schedules, fight crowds and make dining reservations.  What I love about cruising is having all of the fun your toddler can tolerate - with the quiet comfort of your stateroom just moments away.  No worries about getting on the right bus, or dreading a 45 minute commute back to your room when a meltdown is eminent.  Add to that the incredible value of having fresh, prepared food available to you at all times - and someone to make and turn-down your beds each day and it's a mother's paradise!

    It's also worth considering that the warm ocean breezes may be a wonderful alternative to the hot and muggy weather that July typically brings in Orlando.

    Good luck with your decision!
