065 3 Day Cruise on the Disney Dream with a child with special needs child

Listener Jennifer joins me to discuss her families 3 day cruise on the Disney Dream, and her mother daughter 2 day cruise on the Disney Wonder.  Her 3 day cruise was a test cruise to see how one of her children (a child who has special needs) would handle the cruise, before they took a longer cruise this November.  She offers a lot of good advice for other families who may be thinking about cruising with a child with special needs.  She also finishes out with some great thoughts on how to prepare for a 2 day cruise.  Enjoy everyone.
