If you’re planning to take a Disney cruise vacation and want to extend your trip to include a visit to either Walt Disney World or Disneyland, you’re in the right place!
Let’s dive in and explore what a Disney Land and Sea Package is exactly and the 3 steps you can take today to craft your custom Disney vacation experience.
What Are Disney Land And Sea Packages?
A Disney Land and Sea vacation is a single vacation that includes both time in the Disney parks – at Disneyland or Walt Disney World – and time on the high seas enjoying a Disney Cruise Line vacation.
Many moons ago, Disney offered a single vacation package option that would allow you to book your Disney Cruise and time in the parks in one seamless experience.
Today, you can technically still book a Land and Sea package directly with Disney Cruise Lines. But, if you read the fine print, you can see that you’re on your own to line up the dates and make sure everything goes smoothly.
Even if you feel comfortable using the Disney systems and booking the trip yourself, the major downside of booking directly through Disney is that you won’t have a single agent to connect with if something goes wrong.
You could be left scrambling at the last minute, explaining a difficult situation to a new representative every time you pick up the phone. Frustrating, to say the least.
To make sure you have the most relaxing Disney Land & Sea vacation experience, we highly recommend availing yourself of the expertise and knowledge of our Disney-specialized travel planners here at Ear To There Travel, an EarMarked Disney travel agency.

- We do all the leg work of booking and coordinating your travel plans for you.
- You will have a dedicated agent to connect with before, during, and after your vacation should you need any help at any point.
Yet another advantage of working with our knowledgeable Disney-specialized travel planners is that we continuously monitor new Disney Deals as they come out.

How To Craft A Custom Disney Land And Sea Vacation
Step 1: Decide Which Coast You Want To Vacation On
When booking your custom Disney Land And Sea Package, you can choose if you want to prioritize visiting Disney World by taking a cruise that leaves from a Florida port or Disneyland and focusing on the cruises that leave from the port in San Diego.
One advantage of a trip from a Florida port is that you may be able to book a Bahamian cruise that includes a visit to Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line’s private island. But there are other cruise options from Florida ports, like Caribbean cruises and Bermuda cruises, as well as Transatlantic cruises if you’re partial to sea days and spending time in Europe is something you’re interested in.
But if you love Disneyland or want to include a little time at the beaches in Orange County or a trip to Hollywood, the cruises leaving from San Diego – like the Pacific Coast cruises or Mexico cruises – are the ones you should prioritize.
Step 2: Choose Your Disney Cruise Itinerary
Since the parks stay in the same place and are open 365 days a year, it’s best to create your vacation timeline around the cruise itinerary.
Once you’ve selected your Disney Cruise destination, you can drill down and choose the precise Disney cruise itinerary that best suits your vacation needs.
Step 3: Decide If You Want To Enjoy Land Before Or After Sea
Once you have your dates for cruising determined, you can decide if you want to enjoy your time in the parks before or after your cruise experience.
You might even decide to bookend your trip with a few days in the parks both before and after your cruise.
If this feels overwhelming, by all means, please do reach out to us. We are happy to help you every step of the way or, if you know what you want, we can go through the rigamarole of booking exactly what you specify.
Whether you have lots of questions that you need answered or are a Disney vacation veteran who simply wants the support of a professional to book the most magical trip of your dreams, we are here for you.
