Disney Cruise

Disney Cruise Line Tips


This past July, Susan and I got the incredible treat of taking our families on a Disney Cruise to shoot some videos to share here at 5 Minutes for Mom. And as you can imagine, it was incredible! The BEST vacation experience ever!

If I could choose any vacation to do with my children, I would choose a Disney Cruise!

Disney thinks of everything! Every detail of your vacation aboard the Disney ships is beautifully crafted to create a carefree, relaxing, fun and luxurious experience.

The children’s activities, the entertainment, the food, the pools, the private island in the Bahamas! It is all just so wonderful!

If you are considering a cruise with your family, I cannot more highly recommend a Disney Cruise. Disney makes vacationing with kids a fantastic experience for EVERYONE in the family! Seriously ladies — vacationing doesn’t get better than this!!!

Check Out the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy

Take a look on board two of the other Disney Cruise Ships… the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy.

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. :)

I have a feeling that my first cruise is going to be a Disney Cruise.


2 Carrie September 17, 2009 at 7:08 pm

We’re so dying to take one of these- as soon as the kids get a little older, I’m so there!


3 Amy September 17, 2009 at 7:14 pm

I never really considered a Disney Cruise until watching these last 10 days. Now I can’t wait! Thank you!


4 Ivy September 17, 2009 at 7:35 pm

Grandma is taking the little one on a Disney cruise when she gets a little older. I may have to figure out a way to tag along!


5 Cat September 17, 2009 at 7:36 pm

Can I just say I think you ladies are fabulous for taking your time out of all of the fun activities to bring us these videos. Disney and ya’ll did a fantastic job bringing these together to really give us an inside look at what all the magic is about.


6 Amy September 17, 2009 at 7:46 pm

This is on the list of must do’s for me! I adore Disney and have never taken a cruise, I can’t imagine a better company to take me on my first big boat voyage!


7 Alka September 17, 2009 at 8:30 pm

These videos and everything are very nice, the cruise shows look awesome: And its a unique experience, good post.


8 brandy September 17, 2009 at 8:45 pm

no way toy story is so cool. i definitly need to go on a disney cruise


9 Thao September 17, 2009 at 10:20 pm

I have only been on one cruise and it was nothing like the Disney cruise you showcased. I just might have to conquer my fear of boats and seasickness to go on this cruise.


10 Staci A September 17, 2009 at 10:45 pm

It sounds (and looks) absolutely perfect. I love how Disney has paid attention to every little detail to make for a perfect cruise. I’m definitely going to talk to hubby about looking into one for our next vacation.


11 Elli September 17, 2009 at 10:52 pm

what a great vacation! truly looks like a dream trip!


12 Andrea September 17, 2009 at 11:00 pm

I didn’t even know there were Disney Cruises until you mentioned it…and I love the idea!


13 Melissa September 17, 2009 at 11:01 pm

Oh Gosh, I have been wanting to go on a Disney Cruise for the longest time. Now I’m not only going to want but I am going to make that dream come true for myself and my son. I am going to start saving and planning ASAP. I can’t wait.


14 Pamk September 17, 2009 at 11:03 pm

I so want to do a disney cruise. It is definitely on my bucket list lol


15 Shawn C. September 18, 2009 at 12:00 am

I’ve never been on a cruise but really want to do a Disney Cruise now! I will have to talk with my hubby to see when we can do the Disney Cruise…not if but WHEN! ;) It looks like so much fun!

I have never been on a cruise. But, when I do, I hope it will be a Disney cruise. I have always thought it would be a lot of fun, but your videos convinced me.


17 Rebecca September 18, 2009 at 1:44 am

Super fun… I hope my next cruise is a Disney cruise!


18 sara loud September 18, 2009 at 8:49 am

19 Vickie Couturier September 18, 2009 at 8:57 am

Im looking into this,I would love to take my grandkids on a trip like this


20 Susan Heim September 18, 2009 at 9:38 am

The only cruise I’ve ever taken was a short 3-day cruise for grown-ups. I would love to take a Disney cruise with our family. I love how they take care of helping to entertain the kids. Thanks for a great video series.


21 Emily September 18, 2009 at 10:13 am

Both my husband and I really want to take a Disney Cruise- I’ve heard they are just FABULOUS!


22 Angie (Losing It and Loving It) September 18, 2009 at 10:56 am

I wouldn’t mind going on a Disney cruise but I would have to go with someone other than hubs because he would not do well on a boat. ha ha

Any takers? LOL

Glad you had a blast. Enjoyed all the videos.


23 Karyn B. September 18, 2009 at 10:58 am

After seeing all of the videos, I am wanting to go on a Disney cruise now more than ever! Thank you for sharing your experiences!


24 Krista September 18, 2009 at 11:29 am

We’ve already booked our Disney cruise for March! We’re really excited about going, especially after watching your videos!!


25 sheri September 18, 2009 at 3:13 pm

I never thought that I would want to go on a cruise, but you changed my mind.


26 Krista September 18, 2009 at 6:47 pm

Yay, extra comment! Now, if I could just convince my husband that a cruise wouldn’t be his worst nightmare…


27 Heidi September 18, 2009 at 9:33 pm

Though I’ve always thought the Disney Cruises looked like fun, I couldn’t really imagine giving up a REAL Disney vacation for time on a ship. My opinion has changed after viewing your videos – these cruises, like everything else that Disney does – look simply amazing.


28 Marj M. September 19, 2009 at 10:09 am

Thank you for all the play by play you gave us. This inside information could come in handy. (I hope)


29 shelly September 19, 2009 at 1:47 pm

Thanks for posting your videos. We now have Disney fever and are hoping to plan our own trip in the near future.


30 Jessica T September 19, 2009 at 2:31 pm

I’m wondering if I can convince my husband to add a Disney Cruise onto our vacation!


31 Jinii September 19, 2009 at 7:21 pm

I would love to go!!!


32 Becky September 20, 2009 at 8:41 pm

I never even knew that Disney had cruises for families and kids, but it sounds like an amazing experience!


33 jeccica simpson September 22, 2009 at 2:00 pm

Thanks for all th great info, inspires me to works towards a great vacation foru our family!!


34 CherylS22 September 22, 2009 at 3:16 pm

I can’t say I would enjoy a cruise, but I know my family sure did when they went – I stayed on land!


35 Stephanie September 22, 2009 at 4:50 pm

I’m so glad you guys got to have that experience. It sounds like the whole thing was magical and fun-filled. I’m not surprised, however. I definitely equate the Disney brand with excellence.


36 Noreen September 23, 2009 at 1:28 am

a disney cruise would be a dream come true


37 Lindsey Daly May 12, 2012 at 10:33 am

We have been thinking about taking our kids on a Disney cruise and now I want to even more!


38 Mark Lukes February 14, 2014 at 2:51 am

I wish that I’ll be on a Disney Cruise! I totally agree with you. The vacation you have is beyond perfect! I envy you for experiencing such great escapade! Good thing you have shared such great things to us!
