Disney World or Disney Cruise??? Decisions, decisions... HELP!

Have you been watching the news? Disney World. - MagicalCaprice  480.7 #442 11:34AM
I had finally talked myself into cruises being ok, and then, that happened. 😁 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 11:36AM
You never see Disney ships going down. - Romec123aKaSmartyPants  751.8 #251 11:39AM
That accident had everything to do with the captain being an idiot and nothing to do with cruise safety. He is responsible to give the abandon ship order and stay until all guest are off board. He just took off. He also was not on the approved course when they hit that reef. And most appallingly they had not done their lifeboat drill! We did ours on the Disney cruise before we left the dock! - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 11:41AM
Did you hear the captain took one of the first boats off and left so many to fight for themselves in chaos. I'm happy he's going to jail. - Nyghtngale  572.3 #355 11:41AM
I am just catching up on that story. So so sooo sad. - BooEve123  800.9 #232 11:43AM
Such an idiot. And so very sad for those who didn't make it. What a senseless accident. - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 11:43AM
The point is, Disney World is superior. - MagicalCaprice  480.7 #442 11:44AM
No I'm sure it is. 😊 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 11:46AM
how sad and disgusting at the same time. crew had no idea what to do - misschurro  6362.1 #17 11:55AM
I just want to punch the so called "Captin". What a jerk. - MagicalCaprice  480.7 #442 12:06PM
Well, not being a very manly man, I guess the Captain took the Women and Children first literally. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 12:06PM
The parent corporation for that ship is Carnival. They are horrible and I would never cruise with them. I have been on two DCL and I never felt unsafe. - Lelundrial  656.4 #304 12:50PM
What exactly happened? - theRealDisneygirlforevr  175.3 #2312 2:06PM
Agree the disney cruise was SO much better than any other cruise I've been on, in every aspect, safety included - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 2:08PM
Off the coast of Italy the capital veered off course hitting a reef, the power went out and boat began listing to the side. Regardless of this they kept delaying removing passengers from the sinking ship. Things went downhill from there. People are still missing and the boat is resting on its side in the ocean. The captain has been arrested on multiple charges of manslaughter - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 2:11PM
Captain not capital - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 2:11PM
My brother went to school to be a ship captain and is currently working his way up the ladder, and from what I understand cruise ship captains are usually the most unreliable captains - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 3:23PM
World. - misschurro  6362.1 #17 11:31AM
Word. - Alicewhoareyou  2566.5 #53 11:33AM
Cruise - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 11:35AM
Disney World, then a Disney Cruise. πŸ˜‰ - Nyghtngale  572.3 #355 11:37AM
Both! Wear yourself out at the parks then relax on a cruise! I loved our land and sea Disney Cruise when I was a teen! - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 11:40AM
We did 5 days at Disney world than 7 on the cruise. We could have done 2 weeks on the cruise there was so much to do. - SteamboatAndy  17.4 #7922 11:44AM
Disney world - MelB  108.6 #3458 12:00PM
Do the cruise! It looks amazing and eat at animation paint restaurant. So cool. - lesley.belle.  262.4 #1234 2:59PM
The Animator's Palette is in the normal dining rotation. Do bring a camera to that one. - Lelundrial  656.4 #304 3:17PM

Disney World (my opinion) - JanAriel  9.8 #11138 11:34AM
Cruise - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 11:35AM
I believe some of the cruise packages include a couple days in WDW if you leave from Florida...you could do both! =0) - iyuzMickey  515.9 #406 11:35AM
I know I saw that but is a couple of days enough to get the full experience there? - GoofyFace  18.0 #7784 11:37AM

Cruise - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 11:38AM
The cruise is fun, but a lot of the activities are for kids and teens. For adults Its good if you like sun bathing and learning to fold towels into animal shapes. I'd say go to disney world, more to see and do. - BlackCanary86  69.0 #4189 11:38AM
There was TONS to do on the Disney dream for adults! I spent less than 2 hours sitting by the pool on the whole trip - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 11:42AM

no casinos on disney ships; i'm not a serious gambler, but my husband and i enjoyed the cheapy slots after dinner on cruise we went on - ima-pirateswife  745.0 #260 11:42AM
woah reallly :( I understand why not but same here I loved walking by the roulette table and throwing 5 down on black :-D - BooEve123  800.9 #232 11:45AM
A whole $5 Boo! - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 11:49AM

You changed you profile pic, MISTER APRIL!!!! - misschurro  6362.1 #17 11:58AM
the month, that is. - misschurro  6362.1 #17 11:59AM
I suggest going to Disney World. Both seem to be wonderful, but Disney World has so much to offer, and although the cruise has plenty to offer as well, the fact remains that Disney World has **more** to offer. I went in 1997 before they added the Animal Kingdom and plenty more. Even still, I felt like I wouldn't be able to see even half of it. Turns out, it took one week to see the majority of it. So I would personally choose WDW. I'm sure you'll have lots of fun either way though! - nappyrocks2  6.9 #14247 11:59AM

It depends on what you like to do. If you love the sea and beach, go to cruise... If you love rides, go for WDW... If you choose WDW, go there when they have a special events (christmas time is awesome!) - otilegna  2678.9 #48 12:12PM
I would say wdw, but you can do a land and sea thing when you do both, if you do go to wdw post pics on the wdw side, if you can't do both then go to wdw! - nodell111  166.4 #54 12:15PM
We've done the cruise/WDW twice (anyone remember The Big Red Boat?!). We hit WDW first, then relaxed on the cruise. - Gia  802.0 #231 12:17PM
Thats easy WDW. - Motorboatrider  38.4 #5304 12:19PM
Disney world! - JazzSingingMermaid  338.6 #708 12:47PM
The parent corporation for that ship is Carnival. They are horrible and I would never cruise with them. I have been on two DCL and I never felt unsafe. - Lelundrial  656.4 #304 12:50PM
How about WDW this year and DCL next year? For one thing it is best to reserve your stateroom a year in advance for DCL. The room you want might already be gone. - Lelundrial  656.4 #304 12:52PM
Thanks everyone for the input it's making the decision much easier. ;) - GoofyFace  18.0 #7784 12:54PM
Both! In June, my family will be doing a week at WDW, 5 nights on the Dream, another week at WDW. The best part about DCL is the interest free financing. - 415beachgirl  475.6 #447 2:05PM
What exactly happened? - theRealDisneygirlforevr  175.3 #2312 2:06PM
If your taking the cruise from California then my vote go to WDW. - Bambi.  605.0 #338 2:08PM

Cruise! They are so much fun and all-inclusive. - MXPrincess399  753.7 #250 2:12PM
We are doing the 3 day Disney cruise to Bahamas to get married then go to disneyworld after we return to port for like 4 days. I wanted to do the alaska but then I looked it up and the boat that goes in ca dosnt have any of the fun watersides and water activities.. So that's what sold me on fl. We took it as if we're spending that much to fly to Florida we should just go to disneyworld.. Can't wait!! Hth - jeanicej  9.6 #11311 2:12PM
Ok more seriously though what cruise vs wdw and what time of year? - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 2:12PM
The price of cruises might go down - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 2:15PM
I hope so I have fun on cruises! - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 2:23PM

I haven't done either. But I'm going in March and would like to do both. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 2:32PM
