Disney Cruise Line ~ Get a Little Vitamin SEA

The Disney Dream
The Disney Dream

The service and quality of the Disney theme parks and resorts can be found at sea as well! Disney Cruise Line has been taking families to the warm Caribbean waters since 1988. With beautiful ships designed in the classic ocean liner style, Disney Cruise Line is the leader in family cruising. Customer satisfaction in dining, staterooms, shore excursions, entertainment, and overall service has kept Disney consistently at the top of the charts.


Schedules for two of Disney ships can vary from season to season. In the summer, the Disney Magic can most often be found in the Mediterranean visiting Spain, Italy, and France. Her sister ship, the Disney Wonder, is sailing through the glacial waters of Alaska to ports such as Juneau, Ketchikan, and Skagway. Both ships sail to the Caribbean in the winter to join their little sisters, the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy taking guests to warm weather destinations such as Jamaica, Grand Cayman, Mexico, and the Virgin Islands.


A Caribbean cruise with Disney will always take you to the beach paradise of Disney’s Castaway Cay in the Bahamas. One side of the island is designed for family fun complete with a snorkeling lagoon, bicycle rentals, volleyball, and plenty of beach chairs for everyone. For adults 18 and over, there is Serenity Bay, the adults-only beach on the other side of the island, just a short tram ride away. A place of relaxation and bliss. Including massage cabanas for those who have always wanted to have a massage on the beach.


Back on the ships, you’ll find world class entertainment for the whole family. The incredible shows will have you thinking you’re at a Broadway production in New York instead of sailing through the Caribbean! Delicious food is always available whether it be pizza at the pool deck or filet mignon in one of the dining rooms. You will never go hungry! Kids will have a fantastic time in the two family pools. While most cruise lines offer a gambling, Disney has decided to forgo a casino and devote that space to children. Each ship offers areas for specifically for teens, tweens, kids, and even babies. Adults have their own little piece of heaven with an adult-only pool and full-service spa.


Itineraries range from 3-days to 10-days. You can generally book at least a year in advance which is highly recommended to get the very best cruise pricing. I can help you find the best itinerary, ship, and stateroom that will let your dreams set sail!


My clients often ask me for recommendations on which port adventures they should take when sailing Disney Cruise Line. Now I wish I could say that I’ve done ALL of them…could you just imagine?? But alas, I cannot sail with Disney all year long in an effort to have personal knowledge of every amazing destination that they offer. But a girl can dream! And a girl can certainly take some time to document the excursions she has taken as well as other fun experiences she has had onboard. So please check out my Travel Experiences page for some of my personal adventures with Disney Cruise Line and see if they would be a good fit for your own cruise vacation!

Attention to detail
Laurie has had attention to every detail of our traveling, things that I never would have thought of Laurie has covered!! She has helped us before, during and after our vacations. We have had experiences we have contacted her for while traveling such as illness that she was able to make phone calls on the home front taking the worry out of details for us. After working with her over the past few years, she knows what things we like to do and puts together travel plans for us that we would not think of!
Thanks Laurie for your professional and fun planning!

Trip of a lifetime
Very thorough. Our trip was seamless! We added 2 days in Vancouver prior to our cruise. Laurie orchestrated a terrific day trip to Victoria. In addition, our hotel was exemplary! We added extra time in Anchorage prior to flying home- Laurie again organized a great hotel and rental car. She willingly helped with solidifying day trips throughout our cruise and land tour. We didn't have to worry about a thing! We will definitely will use Laurie and Travel Leaders to plan our 50th wedding anniversary trip in 2020 to Europe!

Disney Magic!
Laurie was VERY knowledgeable about our Disney World trip. Our first meeting with her we were clueless but laid out what we wanted and she did the work with finding us a great resort and setting up transportation. She explained the park options and explained the dining plans so we could pick what best fit our needs/wants. Also gave us alot of suggestions and explained fast passes and dinner reservations. Something we knew nothing about. We took it upon ourselves to book fast passes and then I had asked Laurie to look them over and she gave suggestions on that. We met with her a couple of times to ease our worries and took it step by step with the planning. We had 10 people on the trip 4 flying from a different state and that was no hassle at all. She was quick to respond to emails. Overall very pleased with the service and knowledge we recieved. I plan to head to Disney World again with my family of four, and I would definitely use Laurie again to do the arrangements.
