How do you like to use your Disney Gift Cards?  Is there anything I forgot on my list that you would add?

My daughter and I use them for buying souvenirs while on vacation.  My daughter always gets a couple for her birthday, and she loves having her own “money” to shop with on our trips.  I’m also a fan of using them for shopping for Christmas gifts on DisneyStore.com or at my local Disney Store.

If you are a budget shopper, there are ways to get discounted gift cards from Target, Sam’s Club, and a few other places.  The savings can make using gift cards well worth it.  Where do you get your discounted Disney Gift Cards?

Why choose a Disney Cruise?

There are many Cruise Lines to choose from, and they all offer different dining options, activities, staterooms, etc.  They all travel to incredible destinations, and they have beautiful cruise ships.  So the question ends up being, why choose a Disney Cruise?

Well….when you sail on a Disney cruise, the magic and memorable experiences for families are seemingly endless.  You’ll have access to outstanding entertainment, dining, amenities, and much more.  Most experiences are included in the cost of your cruise.

Ever wondered what the staterooms look like on a Disney Cruise Ship?

Staterooms can differ from Cruise Line to Cruise Line, but most have a basic layout.  What makes Disney Cruise Ships unique is that they focus on families.  Staterooms are a little larger then on other Cruse Lines, they have extra sleeping options (like pull down beds), some have split bathrooms, and they have magical extras (like magical portholes).  Disney does their best to make even the cruising experience comfortable for families with various stateroom choices.

Disney Cruise Line currently has four ships:  Wonder, Magic, Fantasy, and Dream.  The Disney Wonder and Disney Magic are sister ships, and the Disney Fantasy and Disney Dream are sister ships.  Sister ships are virtually the same in design/layout.  There are some differences, but they are very similar.

Take a look at some of the stateroom options on the Disney Fantasy and the Disney Dream.
