  1. I have 3 kids ages 6, 4 and 15 months. We're doing a 3-night cruise in February. We are 'early to bed, early to rise' people so we have early dining scheduled. I booked the nursery for the 15 month old for after dinner so that the rest of the family can enjoy the shows. Will this work? Will the nursery put him down to sleep? Or would it work best if I just go back to the room with him and my husband takes the older ones to the shows? Daytime: I booked some nursery time in the afternoon (nap time) for Nassau since I don't think we plan on getting off the ship. Has anyone had luck getting their little ones to nap in the nursery? I'm wondering if this is worth the risk because if he doesn't nap, he will be a monster 🙂 My current bookings center around nap/sleep time but I'm wondering if this is a good strategy. I would be interested in hearing feedback of how the nursery worked for others. Thanks!
  2. That’s where we ended up booking. Are these options listed on the Disney site?
  3. Thanks to all for the advice. I booked the night at the airport Hyatt. Our flight leaves around 6:00 a.m. so this will work great. I think I may have waited too long to book because it seems like some of the WDW hotels are all booked up. Our trip is mid-Feb. We were planning on budgeting about $400 a night but it doesn't appear that we'll find anything in that price range at this point. Is my best option to book via the Disney website? It looks like there is availability at the Contemporary Resort. It's quite a bit over our initial budget but I don't want to wait and not have a room available. We will only be spending one day at the park. Is there any benefit to purchasing tickets ahead of time? Thanks again for the great advice!
  4. We will be arriving in Orlando on a Monday morning and our cruise departs on Wednesday. We're hoping to spend Tuesday at Magic Kingdom. Assuming we should stay on the grounds, any advice as to where we should consider staying? We won't have our own car but I assume if we stay at a WDW hotel we can get transportation from our hotel to the port, correct? From a cruise standpoint, we have 3 kids ages 6, 4 and 15 months. My husband wants to get off the ship in Nassau but I haven't had much luck finding excursions that would be fitting for a 15 month old. Other than heading to a beach for the day, is there anything that you would recommend? I understand that we should book nursery time in advance but I have no idea when we would need/want that service. Is the nursery typically booked up if we don't schedule this in advance? Any advice on when we should utilize the nursery? We fly home the morning after our cruise and the flight leaves super early out of Orlando. Any recommendations on where to stay that final night? I am typically great about planning but I'm overwhelmed by the amount of information out there on this so any general advice for a first timer would be greatly appreciated.
