While you’re in Florida for your Disney Cruise vacation, why not stop by to visit Mickey and the gang at their home in Disney World? Land and Sea vacation packages are available, combining a 3 or 4 day cruise with a Disney World Cruise vacation package, giving you a full week of fun in the sun, or you can make your own plans to spend some time at Disney World either before or after your Disney Cruise Vacation.
Most people prefer to go to Disney World first, and then finish their vacation with the Disney Cruise. This is probably because after spending several days in Disney World, you’re going to feel as if you need a vacation!
The 4 night Disney Cruise departs from Port Canaveral each Sunday, while the 3 night Disney cruise departs on Thursday, so many visitors opt for 4 nights in Disney World followed by 3 nights on the Disney Cruise ship, since that fits in well with a Sunday to Sunday vacation. Of course, if you’re able to vacation from midweek to midweek, airfares are generally cheaper than on the weekends.
If you’re cruising after a Disney World vacation and you have young children, you’ll have many more opportunities for character pictures and autographs on the Disney Cruise ship than in Disney World, so don’t bother spending too much time chasing down Disney characters in the theme parks, since you will surely see them on the ship. However you plan it, a Disney Cruise vacation paired with a stay at Disney World is sure to please the entire family – beach combers and landlubbers alike.
