That is a question that is asked quite often by those who are less than excited at the thought of all the crowds in the Magical World of Disney. The one thing that I can tell you from personal experience is that Disney with young children is not really a vacation for Mom and Dad. If you go with the idea of watching your children have the time of their life, the trip is far more enjoyable. My husband and I just returned from our trip with our twin boys who turned 5 at Disney, and our almost 4 year old daughter. We did many of the things that I caution other families against. Our kids stayed up way too late 5 days in a row and we were all exhausted by the end of our trip. But, we all had a wonderful time, even my husband who is NOT a Disney person. We discussed at length that this trip was for our little ones. We even left our teenager at home this time due to their age difference. But now we are taking a Disney cruise in February with all of our kids and extended family and have decided that it is a better fit for anyone that doesn’t enjoy crowds, lack of control and also wants to take advantage of some adult time as part of the trip.
Disney Cruises are perfect for the families that want to experience Disney while enjoying a more diverse vacation. Most activities are included in the price. You can experience original Disney Broadway style productions each night before or after dinner, specialized children’s programs, character greetings, teen and tween only clubs, fabulous pools, spas and fitness centers as well as plenty of adult time. There are many ports of call available.
