We brought our 11 month old and 3 year old on this cruise thinking that our 3 year old would love it.  Boy were we wrong.  She did not want to play in the clubhouse or the kids' rooms -- and neither would we.  They are dimly lit, dingy, and have screens everywhere.  Most people do not want to pay so much money to have their kids watch TV or play video games all day.  The infant room was sad too.  

The food was mediocre at best, but the worst part is that a crew member tries to sell your child a cheap cup during most dinners and when you politely decline, and your child accepts your answer, they still put the blinking cup in your child's face, begging them to take it.  No thanks.  We do not need a $10 cup worth fifty cents that will end up in the trash.  But at least be respectful of the parents' wishes.  

The last night of our trip, their was a fire on the ninth floor on our side of the ship, and at 3:45 AM, we were awoken by a terrible smell of burning rubber.  Our girls were woken up too by the smell, two loud announcements were made over the intercom that a fire was put out, and then, our girls could not go back to sleep.  By the time it was breakfast, they fell asleep at the table and could not eat anything.  Then we had to have a long day of traveling back to our home, which included buying breakfast for the girls at the airport, and a very cranky toddler and infant.  Disney would not even reimburse us for the amount of breakfast or make any accommodation for the fact that our room smelled of smoke the last evening and we couldn't sleep.

I wouldn't recommend this cruise.  You save your money to go on vacation. Not to be tortured.
