Fall 2023 Disney Cruise Line Itineraries Available Beginning July 28, 2022

Although it’s still summertime, it’s never too early to be dreaming of the holidays! Disney has just announced its fall 2023 Disney Cruise Line itineraries, which include special Halloween on the High Seas and Very Merrytime voyages – and, for the first time ever – departures from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 

Halloween on the High Seas cruises will return from mid-September through October 2023. Aboard these not-so-spooky sailings, guests will eat, drink and be scary with their favorite characters dressed in Halloween costumes, celebrate the season at Mickey’s Mouse-querade party, enjoy trick-or-treating at sea and more.

From early November through December, Disney Cruise Line ships will be extra merry and bright during Very Merrytime Cruises that celebrate the spirit of the holiday season. On these sailings, Disney magic will take on a whole new meaning with characters dressed in festive garb from head to (mistle)toe, a special tree-lighting ceremony, holiday décor, and special guests – Santa and Mrs. Claus. 

Bookings open to the public on July 28, 2022. More details can be found on disneycruise.com.

New Adventures Aboard the Disney Dream  

The Disney Dream will have new destinations on the horizon in the fall of 2023, which means even more fun for the whole family! 

Following its inaugural season in Europe, the Disney Dream will set sail from New York City for the first time. Families will enjoy four-, five- and six-night sailings from the Big Apple to Bermuda, where they will explore the island’s renowned pink-sand beaches, world-class shopping, aquatic adventures and distinctive blend of British and Caribbean culture. Plus, a special four-night voyage on the Disney Dream will transport guests to the charming Canadian seaport city of Saint John.

Starting November 20, 2023, Disney Cruise Line will find a new South Florida home in Port Everglades, offering four- and five-night cruises aboard the Disney Dream to tropical locales in the western Caribbean and Bahamas. Families will enjoy stops in places like Grand Cayman, Cozumel and Nassau from Disney Cruise Line’s second year-round home port, along with visits to Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island oasis. 

Mexican Riviera Adventures from California 

Beginning in mid-October 2023, the Disney Magic will find its home on the West Coast, setting sail from San Diego for voyages ranging from two to seven nights to Baja and the Mexican Riviera. Guests will experience the sparkling waters and beautiful landscapes of Santa Catalina Island, Calif., Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico. An exclusive seven-night Mexican Riviera sailing will feature the breathtaking ports of Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas, which are perfect for recreational water activities such as snorkeling and scuba diving. 

Tropical Vacations from Port Canaveral, Florida 

While guests can sail from places like New York, Fort Lauderdale and San Diego in the fall of 2023, the Disney Wish and Disney Fantasy will continue sailing from Port Canaveral to tropical destinations in the Bahamas and Caribbean. 

The Disney Wish will sail three- and four-night cruises to the Bahamas, including visits to Nassau and Castaway Cay. 

The Disney Fantasy will offer families even more time to experience Disney Cruise Line’s world-class dining, Broadway-style shows and spaces designed for the entire family during seven-night cruises to stunning destinations in the eastern and western Caribbean. 

The only thing more magical than a Disney cruise with family is a Disney cruise with family for Halloween and the holidays! If this is a dream your family has, these fall 2023 Disney Cruise Line itineraries can make that dream a reality!

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!

pirate night

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.

After dinner – or let’s be honest, before dinner – why not grab dessert? While sailing on the Disney Dream or Disney Fantasy, stop by Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats or Sweet on You for a tasty treat to share! The delectable milkshakes and ice cream sundaes crafted by Disney’s culinary team are perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth. And let’s not forget all the great photo opportunities in these bright and colorful dessert shops that one could truly call eye candy!

2. Escape to a sanctuary for the senses.

3. Experience a tropical island paradise.

Did you know that Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, is the perfect place to spend quiet time together, whether relaxing on the soft, white-sand beach of Serenity Bay or enjoying an open-air cabana massage? You could call it a couple’s paradise away from paradise!

4. Share in the rich flavors of Italy and France.

Top 7 Reasons to Book a 7 Night Disney Cruise Line Vacation

If you’ve never experienced a Disney cruise, the 3- and 4-night Bahamas sailings are a great way for you to “test the waters.” But, once you’ve had the pleasure of sailing on a Disney cruise, you’ll probably have your next booked before you even disembark. For those of you who want to persuade your loved one to spend an entire week at sea, we have compiled a list of the top seven reasons you should book a 7 night Disney cruise!

7 Night Disney Cruise
  • You have 165 hours to eat as many Mickey Bars as you’d like. And that’s not all … with the beverage stations and room service available 24 hours a day, AND included in your cruise fare, it’s easy to satisfy whatever you’re craving, whenever you want!
7 Night Disney Cruise
  • You can eat twice in each of the three family restaurants … and still have a night for an adult-only dinner at Palo. Your taste buds are sure to thank you – and so are your kids after they get to see not one but two awesome shows at Animator’s Palate. And I think no explanation is necessary as to why you won’t want to miss your chance to have a romantic date night at Palo, wining and dining like you’re in Italy!
“Disney Wishes” - “I’ve Got No Strings”
  • You’ll have more chances to be blown away by the spectacular entertainment in the Walt Disney Theatre. Every night is show time in the Walt Disney Theatre, so not only will you get to see three Broadway-style musicals, you’ll also have time to catch a first-run film in the Buena Vista Theatre, watch an amusing variety performer and enjoy a heartfelt welcome and farewell theatrical productions.
7 Night Disney Cruise
  • You can explore more of the world, still unpacking just once. All Disney Cruise Line voyages visit stunning destinations … there’s just more of them to explore on a weeklong cruise! Most 7-night cruises call on at least three or more ports, with itineraries visiting Alaska, Europe, Mexico, or the Caribbean (including Southern, Eastern and Western itineraries).
SKYLINE IN THE DISTRICT ON THE DISNEY DREAM
  • You’ll have double the fun in the adult-exclusive night clubs. With the kids off having a blast in our clubs just for them, you won’t want to miss the fun in our clubs just for you! We have several venues to suit your tastes and mood, from a champagne bar and an elegant lounge to a sports pub and a dance club. Of course, more nights gives you the opportunity to experience them all.
Royal Court Royal Tea
  • You’ll get extra special chances to say hi to your favorite Disney pals. From character breakfasts to high tea with princesses and photo opps with Anna and Elsa, some meet-and-greets are exclusive to 7-night or longer voyages. Need I say more?
7 Night Disney Cruise
  • More nights = more towel animals! Let’s be honest, walking into your stateroom each night to see a new towel animal creation never gets old, does it?

Now it’s your turn … why is a 7 night Disney cruise a great option for your family’s vacation?

7 Fun Facts About Castaway Cay, Disney’s Private Island Paradise

How much do you know about Castaway Cay? No matter how many times you’ve been to Disney’s private island paradise, there’s a good chance that you still learn something new with each visit. If you’re looking forward to your first day at this little slice of paradise in the Bahamas, here are seven fun facts about Castaway Cay …

Facts About Castaway Cay

The island is reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests. If the Castaway Cay post office is open, be sure to stop by to mail a message (and brag) to friends back home. Also check out the merchandise you can only get on the island, like beachwear, hats and collectible pins with the Castaway Cay logo, at She Sells Sea Shells … and Everything Else!

You can walk right off the ship to the island. The dock built at Castaway Cay eliminates the need to tender, making the ship easily accessible throughout the day. Trams provide transportation to and from various points on the 1,000-acre island. All you’ll need is your Key to the World card to get on and off the ship as you please.

Facts About Castaway Cay

There’s something for everyone. Disney Imagineers designed Castaway Cay much like their ships, with unique activities and areas for every age group. Places for the family to spend time together are plenty, but when it’s time to do your own thing, kids can head to Scuttle’s Cove, teens to the secluded Hide Out and adults to the pristine Serenity Bay.

All that you need is included. From complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas to an all-you-care-to-eat lunch buffet and ice cream station, Disney has you covered. They even provide beach towels, wagons and strollers to make your day more comfortable. There isn’t much you’ll need to bring onto the island with you, except for of course plenty of sunblock and a good book!

There are plenty of Port Adventures options for your family. Just like in other Disney Cruise Line destinations, they work with local operators to offer excursions such as parasailing, deep sea fishing and boat tours. Plus, you won’t want to miss the activities exclusive to the island, including Castaway Ray’s Stingray Adventure, the Castaway Cay Walking and Kayak Nature Adventure and the teen-only Wild Side Adventure.

The island is stocked with toys for water sports enthusiasts. Water cycles, paddleboats, sea kayaks, sailboats, stand-up paddle boards, floats and snorkel gear are all available to rent. There’s also a watercraft ski adventure for the chance to drive a personal watercraft through mangroves and around the island.

You can stay cool even in the warm sunshine. Besides joining the water fun with one of the many activities listed above, the Pelican Plunge slide is a great way to cool off. When you need a break from the sun, shaded areas are located around the island, including covered seating near the lunch buffets and bars, In Da Shade Game Pavilion and private rental cabanas.
