  1. Loved watching these two videos! Ive been on a few disney cruises and every time I went was a great experience. One weird tip i’ve picked up on is not leaving the ship on a port day such as nassau. Nassau is fun and a cool experience but most of the ship clears out on that day and by staying on the ship, my family and I rode the waterslides so many times because there was no line!

    As a teen, I think its helpful to know that Edge is 11-14 and Vibe is 14-17. These clubs (especialy Vibe) have activities running from about 9:30am to 2am and your teens might return to the state room when you are trying to sleep. These activities include: invading the kids clubs, invading the adults only areas, late night karaoke and filming music videos. (By invading I mean going in when the adults/kids arent there). On the Wonder and Magic Vibe is in one of the funnels but on the Dream and Fanstasy it is quite hidden and you need to follow the running track to get there.

  3. Wow, Disney Cruises sound like a NIGHTMARE with all the kids, the noise, the prices, the constant upselling and weird rules

    Anyone else notice the cast member using a one-finger point at 13:13 😱😱😱
    I’m being nitpicky lol

  5. Great vlog AJ!
    Do you think you could do a short vlog about consierge service on a Disney cruise?
    What extras do they provide or is it worth the money?

    • I haven’t been in a concierge room yet, but from what I can tell, it isn’t worth it. All you get is a special lounge onboard the ship, a concierge, and priority for booking certain things. It’s basically like being a platinum Castaway Club member, but having a lounge and personal assistant for the cruise

  6. Had an “Inside stateroom” for three years on the ENTERPRISE.  Food was lousy and it was noisy all night long.  Only cruise I was ever on.

    Yeah the “let’s Win” thing does not work 😂 have to skip the beginning of the video because it’s soooo awkward. Love the channel and all the videos tho!

  8. Weirdly can’t ‘subscribe’. Anyone else having this issue? I click it and it asks if I want to UNsubscribe. Odd. For now, I’m subscribed in spirit until YouTube deems me worthy, I guess.

  9. I thought bands were used on the cruises, which is what we used on our 2013 cruise. You mentioned using the key card for the lights in the cabin. I don’t remember this on our 2013 Dream cruise.

    We did do the inside stateroom and would do it again except for the Alaska and Mediterranean cruises. The virtual porthole is really cool and it is fun to see characters unexpectedly swim by or make an appearance. We set up a camera to record it for several hours and it had tons of characters. We were on a DVC cruise, so I don’t know if it was different that regular cruise times.

    AJ and DFB keep up the great work of information. I am seasoned and do learn some things from time to time. I live in Orlando now and frequent the parks and appreciate the new seasonal event information the most (i.e. Flower & Garden, Food & Wine, MNSSHP, and MVMCP). I do like all the different topics you have covered. BRAVO!

  10. One thing AJ has not mentioned about a Disney Cruise is the time and number of quality character time you will be able to find and participate in. I as a 63 year-old man got to spend 5 minutes with Tinkerbell, she was wonderful. My wife spent about the same amount of time with Captain Jack invited her to join his crew.
    I saw little girls having wonderful interaction with Princesses and mother’s with tears seeing those interactions.
    I will never cruise with another company
