Should we go for something different and try the cruise????
You asked for opinions so here mine is. Your children will enjoy Disney (even though they went last year) at a wonderful child like level at this age. I am sure you saw this last year in them. Cruising is fun at all ages, but something that they may enjoy a little more in 2 or so years. You also have the free dining at Disney which makes it so much more affordable. I would go to Disney this year and look at a cruise in 2 or so years. Unless you could somehow squeeze a quick 3 or 4 night Disney cruise in. I haven't been yet, but would love to take my little on on a Disney cruise!
As an FYI ... last year my wife and I took a quick CHEAP 3 night cruise to have time as a couple and we took the little one to Disney for a week. If you can afford this that would be my real opinion!
Please let us know what you decided and why. Thanks!
