Well, we did the package of Walt Disney World and the Wonder in December. I like going to WDW ( or Disneyland) first. Very relaxing to do a cruise AFTERWARDS.

We used to live down in Southern Calif. Did Disneyland all the time. The happiest place on earth! We also have been on the Pride. A very nice ship!

So anyways, this is just my opinion.

Definitely do Disney before. We've done it both ways. The first time we did it after and swore we'd never do it that way again. We got back from a nice relaxing cruise and then spent three days going crazy at Disney. When I got home I felt like I needed a vacation from my vacation. Hope this helps.

We have gone to Disneyland before each cruise. I am usually a little unsteady on my feet for a few days after getting off the ship. I don't think I would want to be walking around Disneyland feeling that way.

My wife and I along with my brother and sister-in-law cruised on Carnival Glory from May 15th to the 22nd. Then we spent 3 days at Disney. We have all been to Disney before but we will never do a cruise then Disney again. Just to tiring. Beside this was my brother and sister-in-law's first cruise and now they are spoiled and hooked. First I had to keep reminding my brother my brother that no one was coming behind us to pick up the trays. And most of all it really killed us having to open our wallets so much and for so much. $2.02 for a cup of tea, $5.00 for two cokes. We like having everything paid for up front.

Skip Disney altogether and go on a longer cruise.

I would also say before. We did a lot of running around Disney that it was nice to have the cruise after.

Well i have a horror story for u! We went on the Pride April 25th. We always go to the port a day ahead of time and stay a day after the cruise. So we decided to do the Disneyland thing after the cruise. Well low and behold we hit the hottest May2nd in history. It hit 106*.. No shade. couldnt breathe. I passed out from the heat. 2 others got sick. Our shuttle never came back for us. it took us 4 hrs to get from Anahiem to Los Angeles. Its normally a 45 min ride. Couldnt get any transportation. Well we laugh about it now. But at the time we were very upset. Very tired and very hot. We are a group of 10 of us that cruises. The 7 of us girls went to disney. The men stayed at the hotel and relaxed the whole day. Next trip we all stay at the hotel and relax. Jsut wanted to let u know aobut our experiences. But by all means go and have fun. I am not one of those people that says never go to disney becasue i had a bad experience. Happy cruising...

Im sorry to hear you had a bad experience though and I hope you are ok...Did you feel funky like still walking on water? Or did that not bother you ..I was on my first cruise in Feb and walked funny for a few days afterwards... Thanks all
