I am certainly not a kid. As a matter of fact, I am retired, but I'm a big Disney fan.

We have no kids. We love Disney and I hope to cruise DCL from here on out (despite my Carnival gold status) because it was the best cruise I have ever had.

I think it's not so much that it's any more kids than any other cruise line, I think what it is is that family atmosphere. Instead of constantly pushing drink sales, you can quietly bring some with you to enjoy and not feel pushed to order something. No smokey casinos to walk through on the promenade deck. No bingo games to have to sit through before the show.

Superior service, very fun dancing people! (Other cruise line deck parties are always dead.) Castaway Cay is amazing. It would be hard for me to book another DCL that didn't go there, as it is a great value and we saw tons of fish and enjoyed lunch, volleyball, hermit crab races, everything.

My husband gets bored easily (even at 37!) he was coloring and doing puzzles at the table, the 'boys' (41 and 37) went around and played the mystery games, he was early for every show and stayed through the whole thing, when normally he can't stand to sit at a show.

If you love Disney, well then you will be on cloud9 as we were. We mixed in a few Land park days too, which was even better.

I will stick to DCL even if my friends try to get me to book another Carnival. I may have paid the same as a 7 day carn for Dis 3 day, but it was SOO much better than 7 days of mediocrity...

To make a slight comparison. I had my five grandkids on Royal Caribbean with the Dreamworks experience. There were adults at the character breakfast by themselves having pics taken with the characters and there were adults in line at the character meet and greet around ship. Nothing unusual about that just fans.

Donna if u r still interested in WDW I read a blog from a gal who specializes in Disney. I think it's called "ears of experience" or the mouse experts.

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.

Thumbs up First Cruise was Disney Magic

My first cruise was on the Disney Magic (sailing as a solo as well), which I use today as my standard I judge other lines by. All in all I believe that the Disney ship had the best overall cabins (layout & size) and best officers and staff of any line I have traveled. The rotational dining I believe to be the best overall dining on any ship/line I have experienced.

Since my Disney cruise, I have traveled with Royal Caribbean, NCL, Carnival, Celebrity, MSC, and Princess. When I decided on a cruise line for my upcoming Panama Canal cruise with my father: it was an easy decision to save a full $5,000 by going on the Sept. 2013 Disney Wonder sailing, (compared with Holland, RCCL, & Princess). What's great is that my first time was in a balcony and for this cruise it will be a family deluxe balcony, which looks to be the same size as the mini-suite on Caribbean Princess.

So all in all, sometimes you can save money with Disney: repositioning & transatlantic!!

I know what you mean. We don't live that far from Disney and it has been pouring for that last 36 hours.
It's all about timing.
Prior to this it had been very dry in Central Florida for weeks.

Hi AF,
I have always loved Pirates of the Carnibbean in the Magic Kingdom...Don't forget space mountain and the other roller coaster right across from there. Also, splash mountain if you want to get wet...

We loved "Soaring" in Epcot, "the land" and build your own car. In Animal Kingdom, be sure to do Mt. Everest and the raft ride. At Hollywood, there is the Tower of Terror and the Aerosmith roller coaster. Some of these, you may want to get a fastpass and avoid some waiting. We were lucky and walked on most rides, lots of kids under the age of 5, but school is still in session, so not many older kids, tons of strollers....I am sure I am forgetting a few, just allow plenty of time.

Be sure to catch the fireworks at Epcot at 9 or 10. We also caught the fireworks at Magic Kingdom that they pipe in the music at our hotel across the lake, was great.

Have a great time, hope for good weather, pack a cheap poncho, they come in handy.

Thanks Donna, I plan on going to Walmart and buying a bunch of ponchos. Hope to catch fireworks, but with three little ones under the age of 6; they may not be able to stay up; but we have a double stroller; so they can sleep while we watch fireworks. Take care and thanks.

i personally would sail with disney (when i can afford it) with or without my kid. of course, she is young so if we do ever get a chance to sail within the next several years with her, we will. but i can totally see myself sailing on disney (or going to disney world/disney land) with just my husband.

i am just a huge disney fan. and i know a lot of adults who love disney.

as far as more commercial-like vacations, disney has always proven to us as being top notch with customer service. i would think their cruises are also top-notch in this area (of course, not being on a disney cruise, i could be wrong - but going off other reviews, it seems to be pretty consistent with all things disney).

as far as the OP, yes, certainly up to their opinion - to each his/her own! but for me, i would have to respectfully disagree.

anyway - anything to do with disney, one should expect line-ups. it is just the reality. i don't love it (who does?) but it is the price to pay for disney fans of any age. this is especially true with character meet and greet. i don't know if the cruise has character dining? if so, it's worth it even if it costs more.

i know with disney world, we never line-up to meet characters anymore. we choose at least two character dining experiences when we vacation at disney. that way, the characters come to our table. it's the best way to go! plus the food is good - and well, we had to eat anyway so it killed two birds with one stone.

Donna,

just returned from Disneyworld. All the things you mentioned we did; plus some additional rides; we spent six nights seven days; so we did almost all there was available. Thanks

Donna, Epcot was our favorite Park. Soarin, Spaceship Earth, and the Mars ride. Kids favorite ride was Mt. Everest in Animal Kingdom. Best food was Via Napoli which had great wood fired pizza.

Annoying? Eveyone is entitled to "meet the characters"! Children do not have a exclusive entitlement to the characters. If you do not like the way it is set up, do not go on a Disney cruise. You probably complain when adults pose for pictures with the characters at the Parks as well. Disney is for children OF ALL AGES, not just little kids, as Walt Disney himself said. Without adults to pay for the trip, there would be no going on the cruise!. We pay a lot to go on these cruises that we love and we are going to try to get the full experience out of it as much as you are.

Just be patient and wait your turn. I am 60 ys old and get in line to get my picture taken with characters all the time and I have to wait my turn too. It is fun and enhances my vacation and I don't give a hoot if you are annoyed. If you let the fact that adults are having as much fun as your kids on the ship, ruin your trip, you are in for a terrible cruise vacation with Disney because adults have their own areas and restaurants and can pose for pics with characters as often and as much as they want. There was no law against it the last time I went on a Disney cruise (in April 2013).
Get over it and just enjoy the fact that you even can afford to take a Disney cruise. Many people can't.

Also, Disney replenishes their cartoons and brings them back - for example: My very first movie I went to see was when I was a preschooler in the early 1990's was Snow White! My wonderful grandmother took me to see it, and that is when I fell in love with Disney. My husband and I are taking our three great kids on the Disney Wonder next fall. Why? Because my husband's first movie he seen was Peter Pan, and we both have never experienced anything Disney before. My children also love Disney. Why I give these examples is because your post is implying grossly that Disney is JUST for kids, when in fact...Disney is for everyone. Disney has been around for a great while, meaning lots of us have grown to have Disney's entertainment be apart of their lives. There is absolutely nothing wrong with adults going on anything Disney. After this cruise, my husband and I plan on taking a Disney Cruise...just for us! It is very troubling that you feel that not everyone can enjoy Disney. Those adults standing in line paid high rates to be on that ship as well. If you have this attitude, you better change it fast or it will ruin any future Disney trips for you.

I hope you find peace in your next cruise adventure and enjoy it regardless who else is on the boat with you. (hugs)
The original Disneyland in Anaheim, California opened in 1955. The Magic Kingdom Park in Florida opened in 1971 and the other Parks and areas like DtD opened in the ensuing years. WDW was being planned in the late 1960's when Walt was in the hospital dying from lung cancer. Over the many years of Disney, there have been many changes. The new Parks in other countries, not to mention just all the new parks added to Walt Disney World in Florida over the years since 1971 and then a wonderful addition: The Disney Cruise Line.

My husband and I LOVE cruising on DCL. WE won't cruise with any other cruise line. We have done 8 cruises on Disney in the last 4 years and we have two more already paid for and planned, a 7 day on the Wonder to the Bahamas in Novenber and a 7 day Eastern Carib on the Fantasy (our ship!) in January for my birthday. (Yay, we will be Platinum Castaway Club after those two cruises!)

We just did B2B Eastern/Western Caribbean cruises in April. We were on the Fantasy when it went through hurricane Sandy this past October! Yes, we were actually in the hurricane's outer bands and experienced a real hurricane at sea. That night in the storm was not that magical, but we had the best captain in DCL, Captain Tom and we made it just fine. Sandy actually grew from 600 miles acrosss to 1000 miles across and we were about 200 miles behind her and she came to us. We did not sail into the storm, the ships captain's NEVER do that, they do everything they can to avoid hurricanes, but she grew and we were in the expansion area of her growth from 600 miles to 1000 miles. Also, Hurricane Sandy stalled off the coast of Florida for a few hours. That was an interesting cruise, it was the last night of our cruise that week! There was nothing we could do at that point. So the captain sailed at 1 knot per hour and we made it in late to port the next day. The ship took some damage and we got right back on for our second part of our B2B cruises to the western carib. That second week was fine, no storms... :o) We LOVE the Fantasy and will sail on her most of the time.

We are huge Disney fans and love everything Disney. Our home looks like a Disney museum. Most of my clothing is Disney, yes, down to my socks and underwear! We LOVE it. We go to WDW every year for three weeks and do at least 2 cruises a year, if not more when we can. We are retired and would rather go to Disney than anywhere else in the world. It is just so much fun for us.

The cruise ships have so many nice amenties for adults, Palo restaurant, without any screaming and running kids, and the adult pool and hot tub area, the spas where I love to go and get facials and massages and relax with no noise or stress or kids, and the whole ambience of the ships.

We don't hate kids, we could never get on a Disney ship if we did, but we love Disney and the adult areas are great and we have lots of fun on our cruises. And yes, I LOVE to get pictures with the characters. And, no I am not weird! I am just a huge Disney fan! It is as magical as Disney makes it and as fun and amgical as you make it!

The only proiblem we have had on the ships is families saving seats in the Walt Disney Theatre for their kids and friends while they change clothes from dinner. There is NO saving seats in the theatre and at the pools, but do you think people follow those rules. No.

I had a lady yell at me for taking a disabled seat (I am disabled, I have had spine surgery and have two bad knees that need surgery) when she said she was saving it for a disabled person. It was 30 minutes before the show and that is when disabled people are supposed to show up and I did and took the seat. She was livid that I took "her" seat that she was saving for someone that was not even there, but I was there already and I am disabled and needed to sit. Do you think a disdabled person ever showed up wanting that seat? No. No one ever did. She was just saving it for someone else and they could not have the disabled seat. So that is really the only problem we have had on ships and it is always big families who do it, save the seats in the shows and at the pools. The cast members will stop them if they catch them doing it now. That is good. I am used to lines at Disney, so you just deal with them. LInes are so common at any Disney venue, Park or ship, that you get used to them and figure out away to entertain yourself while in them. Sometimes you even make new friends in lines at Disney! You spend enough time in them to get to know people!

Just booked my next Disney Cruise. Dream on December 8th. I always have to wait last minute if I want to get the CM rates. But I just plan ahead and take 2 weeks off in early December, book what I can get, and cancel the rest of the vacation request.
This will be my 2nd Disney cruise. Didn't even think about booking anything else at this point.
Gonna be me and my best friend from over in Melbourne Florida. He's almost as big a Disney dork as I am. Heh, the 2 of us have almost 20 room nights at WDW for 2013.
