Disney Cruise Line: In The News

Dress in costume, you will. Star Wars Day at Sea sailings return on the Disney Fantasy beginning in January, and it’s not too early to begin thinking about your packing list if you are on one of these epic sailings! Disney Parks Blog shared a video that may help you find the perfect costume. Will you be representing the light side or the dark side??

The holiday season has gone full steam ahead on the entire fleet, and we are well on our way into the Very Merrytime Cruise season for 2017. There is so much fun to be had during these sailings, and Disney Parks Blog brought us a list of six special experiences not to miss. Of course this includes a visit from the big man himself — where else would Santa rest up besides on a Disney Cruise?

Upcoming Entertainment

The following films are being shown aboard the Disney Cruise Line ships this month:

  • Moana
  • Beauty and the Beast
  • Born in China
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Captain’s Log: Important Tips and Information

 

Last week, we told you about the exciting addition of Rapunzel’s Royal Table coming to the Disney Magic this spring. Can’t wait until then to get your fill of Tangled fun? If you will be sailing on the Disney Magic, be sure to go see Tangled: The Musical. On the night of the show, do NOT MISS the transformation of O’Gills into the Snuggly Duckling — quite simply the best family pub there ever was! You’ll be treated to snacks, sing-alongs with Thugs, and enjoy a rousing game of THUGO. Best night ever!!

 

If you’ve been on the Disney Fantasy and noticed a stateroom door on Deck 5 that’s not quite like the others, you have discovered the room of Pepe the King Prawn! Pepe’s door plays a role in the Muppet version of the Midship Detective Agency game on board. Did you know you can also call Pepe’s stateroom and be treated to much hilarity on his answering machine? Just dial 41-5148 and enjoy! If you simply can’t wait and don’t mind spoilers, check out the audio recording from The Disney Cruise Line Blog.

Are you deciding whether to book a Disney Cruise but are having a tough time deciding which ship fits all of your desires? Well, our own Laurel Stewart has put together a chart that makes it easy to compare all of the options in one place. Also available as a valuable planning and companion guide from authors Len Testa, Erin Foster, and Laurel Stewart is The Unofficial Guide to the Disney Cruise Line. The companion guide contains a complete overview of each Disney ship as well as Castaway Cay and includes valuable tips on how to save time and money during your cruise!
