I think the only cruiseline that includes time at Disney World is the Disney Ships. Hopefully, someone else can confirm.

You certainly can plan the Disney part yourself. We did. Not that big of a deal and probably was much cheaper in the long run.

Do the Enchantment of the Seas out of Ft Lauderdale for 5 nights. Depending on when you go, you may have to go on the Empress of the Seas instead while the Enchantment is is dry dock or New England. You have two days at seas and stops in Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman. Skip the whole Disney world thing. You will just get aggravated with the whole 'stand inline all day in the hot sun' routine and wish you were still on the ship.

We did it ourselves. We spent a couple of days in Orlando precruise and then cruised to the Bahamas out of Port Canaveral. I'm not sure what goes out of Port Canaveral to Ocho Rios and Grand Cayman. Your other alternative would be to go out of Tampa which might have those ports.

I agree with Darcy............we did a 2 week cruise/WDW trip in 2003. A GREAT vacation and about the same price as the 1 week land/sea Disney packages! To save money on the cruise, we didn't pick the biggest or newest ship. We sailed the Carnival Inspiration out of Tampa (it sailed 7 day cruises back then, now, I believe it sails 5 day trips), rented a car post-cruise and spent 7 nights at WDW. I really wanted to stay on-site and, through research on disney message boards, was able to get a good price at the Coronado Springs Resort-----BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Anyway, you are not limited by the land/sea packages if you do it on your own and will save money. Pick the ship and itinerary you want and go from there. Takes some planning, but it's well worth it. HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We did the Inspiration last year and loved her so much we're going again this year in August. She's doing 4/5 day cruises now. 4 day to Cozumel and 5 day to Key West and Cozumel.

Darcy, have a great time., we enjoyed the ship too. It cracks me up when ships are labeled "old", just because they aren't a year or two old. We're going on the Conquest, this summer and I recently read a post asking if they'll be disappointed in the cruise, after just sailing on a "new ship". Anyway, since the Inspiration was "old" we were able to budget in the cruise and WDW vacation; something we never thought we could pull off.

PS........I just noticed you have a cruise in 18 days too! Lucky you! Happy sailing on that one too.
