You're going on a Disney cruise? I actually haven't been on one yet. But we are going on our second carnival cruise next month. Like with any vacation, have a little structure to your days, but remain flexible and willing to change on the fly. Taking things slow and just relaxing on the deck can be just add much fun as trying to see all the shows and do everything.
I'm in Milledgeville. East of Macon. 6 to 6.5 hours to Disney. Depending on traffic and number of stops. We are annual passholders and go at least 10 times a year. Holiday weekends and at least for one whole week sometime during the year.
