As the saying goes, we're all kids at heart! (And most of us guys will admit there's still alot of kid in us!!)
We love Disney! The ship, the cleanliness, the staff, the staterooms, Castaway Cay, and especially their shows! They are awesome.
Our grandson has gone over our Disney brochures and DVD's time and time again, and is constantly telling us how he wants to go on a Disney cruise. We have a picture on our desk of Nancy and I with Mickey and I always tell our grandson that I know Mickey personally - he gets a kick out of that. And I know that probably within the next year we'll be taking a Disney cruise with him and we'll turn into kids again because we'll see the wonderment through his eyes.
The only thing I've never really liked about Disney is their price and the food. While the food is not bad and Palo's was very good, we thought the food should be much better given the price they charge when compared to other cruise lines.
As for Disneyworld, yes, there are many places to stay and it depends on the price you want to pay and the experience you want to get. You can even do a WDW stay along with a cruise. We've sold alot of these to clients and those with families will often decide to save money and stay in a fully furnished house with its only private screen-in lanai and swimming pool. So much nicer than staying in a hotel room, especially when kids are involved. If you want a hotel experience, WDW can be a bit steep - there are several really nice hotels outside of WDW that are cheaper and offer free shuttle service.
But there are WDW packages available for everyone and every budget. Plus, there are packages that will include WDW, Seaworld, MGM, etc.
