Although destinations like Alaska and Europe tend to be at the top of bucket list destinations, we think this new exotic locale of Lighthouse Point will quickly join your list of “must visit” destinations.

Lighthouse Point

Lighthouse Point, Disney Cruise Line's new island retreat in The Bahamas

Lighthouse Point, Disney Cruise Line’s new island destination in The Bahamas, on the island of Eleuthera will welcome families for the first time in June 2024. Lighthouse Point was designed with families in mind, imbued with the color and energy of Bahamian artistry and developed with sustainability and conservation.

On June 6, a three-night preview sailing on the Disney Magic from Fort Lauderdale will give cruisers a sneak peek of Lighthouse Point with limited access to some areas of the island.

A seven-night inaugural cruise aboard the Disney Fantasy from Port Canaveral, Florida, on June 8 will allow you to be among the first to make a splash in the crystal-clear waters of this new beach retreat. This ultimate Disney Cruise Line island destination itinerary will feature not one, but two stops at Lighthouse Point … and that’s not all! One day of sun-drenched serenity at Castaway Cay also awaits your family on this once-in-a-lifetime sailing.

After the inaugural cruise, Lighthouse Point will be a featured stop on select three-, four- and five-night sailings to The Bahamas and Caribbean on the Disney Magic out of Fort Lauderdale throughout the summer. These South Florida-based itineraries will vary stops between Lighthouse Point and Castaway Cay, with five special sailings including both Disney Cruise Line island destinations.

Europe

Can you think of anything better than sailing the Mediterranean with Captain Mickey and Captain Minnie at the helm? Those dreams can come to life in next summer as the Disney Dream returns for the second time to exciting European destinations in the Mediterranean, Greek Isles, British Isles and popular locales in the Norwegian Fjords and Iceland.

These sailings will feature a number of new ports of call, including Valencia, Spain; Haugesund, Norway; and Hamburg, Germany, along with three Mediterranean destinations that will return for the first time since 2014: Catania, Italy; Kusadasi, Turkey; and Valletta, Malta.

Mediterranean and Greek Isles cruises from Barcelona and Civitavecchia (Rome) will range from five to 11 nights, while northern Europe and British Isles sailings will offer itineraries anywhere from three nights to one 12-night voyage that includes the Norwegian fjords, three days in Iceland and an overnight stay in Reykjavik. 

Alaska

Cruises to Alaska from Vancouver, Canada, will return on the Disney Wonder from May through September 2024, offering more chances for your family to experience the natural splendor and adventure of “The Last Frontier” with five-, seven- and nine-night sailings. Majestic wildlife and stunning scenery in iconic places like Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan and glacier viewing along the Stikine Icecap will blend with Disney’s world-class entertainment, dining and guest service to create a family-friendly vacation that celebrates the spirit of Alaska both on land and on board.

The Bahamas and Caribbean

In addition to the inaugural season of Lighthouse Point sailings from Fort Lauderdale on the Disney Magic, the Disney Fantasy and Disney Wish will sail to sun-kissed islands throughout The Bahamas and Caribbean in summer 2024. All sailings on these Port Canaveral-based ships will feature a visit to Castaway Cay, a Disney’s original private island paradise in The Bahamas that offers something for everyone in the family, from fun and relaxation to adventurous water activities.

The Disney Wish will continue to offer three- and four-night sailings to the Bahamas out of Port Canaveral while the Disney Fantasy will visit popular ports in both the eastern and western Caribbean on seven-night cruises. One five-night Disney Fantasy voyage in July will visit Nassau and feature two stops in Castaway Cay, while a special 10-night southern Caribbean sailing will give your family another opportunity to visit Lighthouse Point with additional visits to the islands of Antigua, St. Lucia, Dominica, Tortola and Castaway Cay.

Top 5 Tips to Make the Most of Pirate Night on Disney Cruise Line

pirate night

Ahoy! One of my favorite experiences during a Disney cruise is Pirate Night! (almost) Every Disney Cruise Line sailing offers a pirate night featuring a deck party, show, late night buffet, fireworks at sea, Disney characters, and more. Your dinner menu will even be themed to celebrate. If you’re planning your first Disney cruise, you may not be sure what to expect or how to prepare for Pirate Night so we wanted to share these five tips with you.

Before You Go

Pack Your Pirate Night Attire: You’ll receive bandanas from your stateroom host or hostess, but so many guests will go all out in full pirate costumes. Kids of all ages always love some fun pirate accessories, too, like glow sticks, costumes, eye patches, and tattoos.

Book The Pirates League Early: The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique transforms into The Pirates League for Pirate Night! At The Pirates League, you can choose from beards, bandanas, swords, scars, earrings and eye patches to accessorize your costume. You can have a full pirate makeover! The First Mate package comes with a bandana, scars, fake teeth, eye patch and sword. The Empress package comes with a Disney Cruise Line exclusive dress, shimmering makeup, face gem, nail polish, earring, eye patch and sword. If you’re interested in booking The Pirates League experience for your children (or you), be sure to reserve the experience as soon as your booking window opens on the Disney Cruise Line website (which for first time cruisers is 75 days prior to sailing).

pirate night

Once Onboard

Check Your Daily Navigator: Be sure to read your Daily Navigator on the Disney Cruise Line app (or grab a paper copy from guest services) so you don’t miss out on any of the pirate fun. There are pirate themed activities scheduled throughout the afternoon and evening that you won’t want to miss. You will have the opportunity to meet characters like Captain Hook, Captain Jack Sparrow, Tinker Bell, Pirate Mickey, and more so be sure to check their times and locations in your Daily Navigator.

Enjoy Your Pirate Themed Dinner: All of the main dining rooms serve a special “Pirates IN the Caribbean” themed menu for pirate night. If you’re planning an adults only dining experience like Palo or Remy, try to avoid Pirate Night, if possible. You can always request a dining rotation in advance to make sure you don’t miss your favorite restaurant, either. The servers even offer light up skull cups for a small charge during dinner!

End the Night with “Mickey’s Pirates IN the Caribbean” and “Buccaneer Blast”

Arrive Early for “Mickey’s Pirates IN the Caribbean” and “Buccaneer Blast”: There are two incredible shows up on the pool deck for Pirate Night. These “must see” shows are “Mickey’s Pirates IN the Caribbean,” a family-friendly interactive show featuring the famous Disney characters; “Hunt Fer Jack,” a thrilling live-action pirate showdown; and “Buccaneer Blast,” a spectacular display of fireworks at sea. If you have little ones, try to get an afternoon nap so they are up for a late night!

PS- Don’t forget to check out the late night buffet at Cabanas after the Buccaneer Blast! You will enjoy tacos, ham, turkey legs, baked potatoes, crepes, fresh fruit, and more! Your main dining room server should fill you in on all of the details, including serving times!

15 Things to Bring on a Disney Cruise Line Vacation

Things to Bring on a Disney Cruise

We absolutely love Disney cruises! They are such a perfect blend of relaxation, entertainment, and Disney magic! We’ve taken four Disney cruises just within the last 18 months and have found that there are some items that can be really helpful to have with you to make your experience even more enjoyable! So, today, we wanted to share with you 15 things to bring on a Disney cruise!

Things to Bring on a Disney Cruise for Onboard Fun

Things to Bring on a Disney Cruise

Pirate Night Attire: One of my favorite parts of a Disney cruise is Pirate Night! (almost) Every Disney Cruise Line sailing offers a pirate night with a deck party, late night buffet, and fireworks at sea. Your dinner menu will even be themed to celebrate. You’ll receive bandanas from your stateroom host or hostess, but our kids always love glow sticks, costumes, eye patches, and tattoos.

Autograph Book or Photo Mat: You will have the opportunity to meet a number of Disney characters throughout your sailing! Many guests ask the characters to sign an autograph book so they can keep the signatures all together in one place. We also love these photo mats so that we can display our favorite vacation memory inside when we return home.

Fish Extender Holder: A popular experience for many Disney Cruise Line guests is the fish extender gift exchange. This gift exchange is generally organized through your cruise’s Facebook group prior to sailing. It is a fun way to exchange gifts with fellow cruisers. Some guests will also leave “pixie dust” gifts for fellow cruises without any type of organized exchange. To participate, you’ll need a fish extender holder for your gifts to hang outside of your stateroom.

Candy or Snacks for Movies & Shows: One of the few things not included in your cruise fare is the popcorn and candy available outside of the theaters. We can’t help you resist the fresh buttered popcorn smell, but you can bring prepackaged candy and snacks to enjoy during the evening Broadway style shows and movies onboard.

Magnets: Disney Cruise staterooms doors are magnetic so you can decorate your door. Show off your Disney side with magnets that can be customized with your family name, ship, sail date, and more! We also love this port hole Mickey that fits around your stateroom door’s port hole.

Things to Bring on a Disney Cruise to Use In Your Stateroom

Things to Bring on a Disney Cruise

Laundry Bag: Space is limited in a cruise stateroom so it can be nice to have a dedicated location for dirty clothes. Although your suitcases fit under your bed, you probably won’t want to have to pull them out to put dirty clothes away. We recommend packing a laundry bag or pop up hamper to save space and keep all of your dirty clothes easily together in one place.

Shoe Rack: As you may know, space is often at a premium in cruise staterooms. Although Disney does offer some of the largest staterooms, you can maximize your space with a shoe rack. It can be a great way to store toiletries in the bathroom or even drink cups and kids toys in the stateroom.

Clothes Pins: Clothes pins can be really useful to have in your stateroom with wet swim suits. There is a clothes line that can be hung across your bath tub. You can fit more on the line and not have to worry about anything falling off when you can secure them with clothes pins.

Night Light: If you’re in an inside stateroom, it can be pretty dark in there at night. If you are traveling with little ones or just want to be able to easily find your way around the room at night, we recommend packing a night light.

Dry Erase Board: Many guests hang a dry erase board on their (magnetic) stateroom door. This way, your fellow cruisers can leave messages or artwork. You never know who might leave you a message. It’s also especially helpful if you are traveling with any family and friends.

Magnetic Hooks: You may also find a magnetic hook helpful for hanging your lanyard inside your stateroom. These can also be used for jackets, wet swim suits, and more.

Things to Bring on a Disney Cruise to Make Travel Easier

Things to Bring on a Disney Cruise

Tumblers/Cups/Water Bottles: Soft drinks are included with your cruise fare. They are readily available up on the pool deck during your Disney cruise. Although Disney provides small paper cups, we enjoy bringing something bigger and more portable like these water bottles. We especially love our stainless steel Mickey Tervis for both hot and cold beverages!

Sea Band or Non-Drowsy Dramamine: If you are concerned about motion sickness, we highly recommend packing sea bands and/or non-drowsy dramamine. It’s always better to be prepared. We’ve found rougher seas going in and out of port so you may want something to help relieve discomfort before the gift shops have opened. You can even order some dramamine for kids.

Reusable Straws: In an effort to be more environmentally responsible, Disney has eliminated plastic straws on board. Although you can request paper straws, we find that they are difficult for small children. They don’t hold up very well so we prefer to bring reusable straws like these metal straws or these silicone straws. The silicone straws even come with a cleaning brush and portable case.

Lanyards: You will receive a plastic Key to the World card for your room key and all purchases onboard. We find it convenient to wear a lanyard to easily access (and remember) our Key to the World card. We recommend one of these fun Mickey and friends lanyards.
