Disney world or disney cruise???

Sorry if this isn't the right place for this question. Wasn't sure where exactly to post it!

This is becoming a difficult decision in our house! Originally we planned to go to WDW in November '14. Now we are considering a cruise instead. DH doesn't feel all that motivated for WDW, since we've already been to Disneyland twice in the past few years. He isn't looking forward to the hot weather, walking and lines again. I think the kids could be excited either way.

So.... Disney World, or Disney Cruise?

Kids are 11, 9 and 9. Been to Disneyland twice (including last December). But never experienced WDW or Disney Cruise. Might be our last vacation opportunity for several years!

You will probably have a great time doing either. However, if you really want the Disney Vibe with no walking then a cruise sounds a mighty fine way to find it.

Have a great trip what ever you decide.

Cheers Larry.

PS As the only Disney Cruise I've done is the Jungle Cruise, you can see that I'm not an expert in this department.

Been to Both

My kids are 15 & 12. We do a Disney trip every year. DWD is not jut the Magic Kingdom. Its Epcot, Animal Kingdom & Hollywood Studios. 4 parks. We also do the Disney Water Park. If you kids enjoy the rides do the parks.

If you want a more laid back trip with NO rides do the Cruise. But make sure to pay extra for the Ocean View room its worth it.

I would choose DW. It's so magical seeing the castle decorated with lights at christmas.

It should not be hot in November. We've gone then and found the weather pleasant and on the cool side without ever getting cold. But I can understand where you're coming from about walking. If you're fearing the walking, go for the cruise.

If the cruise is anything less than 7 days with a verandah, then no go to WDW. Short cruises will barely get your feet wet and will be over before you know it.
