Have Questions Planning Your Disney Cruise Line Vacation? Andi Has Answers

posted on March 31st, 2011 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


Are you thinking about taking a Disney Cruise Line vacation? Do you need help mapping out the best time of year for your family to travel, selecting an itinerary or picking which Port Adventures to book? Would you like planning and packing tips from a parents’ perspective?

Well, I have good news! There’s someone who can answer all these questions and more. I’d like to introduce you to Andi.

Andi and her pal, Captain Mickey Mouse, get ready to sail on the Disney Dream.

Andi, a mother of four, is part of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel, and is our official Disney Cruise Line Mom. She and her family sail with us often, so she knows our ships from bow to stern and understands the ins and outs of traveling with kids of all ages (and also how to enjoy the adult spaces on a Disney cruise).

Andi told me, “The next best thing to going on a Disney vacation is planning one. From toddlers to teens, we’ve experienced just about everything while cruising with children and I call all hands on deck when helping others make planning decisions for a Disney cruise. It brings me such joy to share my experience with fellow sea-faring Disney guests.”

Visit Andi and ask her your Disney Cruise Line questions at www.disneyworldmoms.com. And, keep an eye out for more Disney Cruise Line info and tips from Andi on the “Mom” Knows Best tab of our Facebook page.

“My best advice is to research and plan while on land, but once you’re on a Disney ship, sit back, relax and hold those plans loosely for unexpected magical surprises,” Andi said.

We are planning our first cruise. My children will be 4,7, and 10. Can they be kept together in the Oceaneer Club? Do they get separated by age?

Thanks!

Andi, could you tell me what the differences are between a Disney Cruise experience and the other cruises? I’d really love to go on a Disney Cruise soon, but I wanna know what it has and includes. Thanks!!!

Why has the Disney Cruise Line never seen fit to install a proper pool lift for disabled travellers on the Disney Magic?????? Royal Caribbean’s Explorer of the Seas is the same approximate age as the Magic and has one. And I am sure that the Magic has been in dry dock for upgrades more than once. What is going on here?????

Thanks for such a warm response, everyone…I just love the Disney Cruise Line community!! For those of you with questions, I’d be happy to help. Just follow Jonathan’s link to my page and post a question. I’ll “see” you there or hopefully on board! :)

Is it me, or does it look like Mickey and Andi went clothes shopping together? And pray tell, what store could that possibly be? Curious minds want to know. . .

I heard it’s very hard to score resv for remy and palo on the dream. I can book it at 90 days out, but it seems that might not be enough either. Any suggestions? I am more interested in remy just to let you know. I am not sailing till dec and I am going at time when kids are still in school. Will that help? Not sure!
