Day 10 in our Disney Video Tour — Disney Cruise Line Tips

Disney Tips - Cruise Line Tips

Welcome to Day 10 in our 10 Days of Disney Video Tour.

For the last 10 days we’ve taken you through Disney World and taken you on board a Disney Cruise.

In our final video we share some tips to help you get the most out of your Disney Cruise.

See the complete list of videos at 10 Days of Disney video tour.

Or click on each below to enjoy the magic of Disney…

And in the nature of full disclosure… Disney paid for our trip and produced these videos. But as you can imagine, they certainly didn’t need to pay us to love and gush about Disney… that just comes naturally. :)

Sailing the open seas. My dream. Entertainment and fun for the kids… an added bonus.

Am I the worst mom ever if I say the best part would be having someone else entertain my kids? :)

I’m having a hard time picking which part of the cruise I would enjoy most. “Dine and Play” sounds like something we would really love. The adults only pool also looks fantastic. WHAT FUN!

After the year we have had and the next few months of knowing that we only have a few more months left of my husbands current employment … we would enjoy just being away with no cares and being able to enjoy our kids and relax with no things to worry about.

As a mom, I think the babies travel light part is incredible.

For my kids, the bedtime story would be amazing for them.

I would honestly love it all, I am a Disney girl through and through even at 28 going on 29. I think the best part would be just getting away but sitting on the beach watching the kiddos digging dinosaur bones would definitely be top of the list too!

The part where they entertain my children while I spend some time in the Spa! Awesome!

I think the thing I would enjoy the most is the customized care that the cruise provides. They are so family oriented that they have even thought about providing a box of baby care items so you don’t have to pack the whole house. That is a huge thing for me because I am always packing for twins.

I think I would love Serenity Cove on board the ship with the adult only pool. It would be great to get a little alone time with my hubby.

Disney does it again! Every time I’ve ever experienced Disney-anything, it’s been magical. I truly appreciate that Disney pays so much attention to the details.

I especially love the theatrical bedtime story concept. My girls would be captivated by that kind of show. Come to think of it…so would I! :)
