A Disney cruise has quickly become one of our favorite family vacations. Although we’ve only been on 2 Disney cruises, we feel in love the first time we set sail.
There is something for everyone onboard a Disney Cruise Line Ship. Each family member can be as busy or as relaxed as they want. There is plenty of choices for food, that everyone will find something they like. Plus, all the Disney magic that we love.

Disney Cruise Line 2020 – Itineraries
Disney Cruise Line has lots of itineraries to choose from, including anything from 3 to 14 days at sea. You can also set sail from ports in New York, California, Texas or Florida. Depending on the length of cruise you’d like, you could visit destinations in Alaska, Mexico, New England, Panama or Europe. Disney also has a private island, Castaway Cay, located in the Bahamas. Here’s a look at some of the Disney Cruise Line 2020 itineraries you can choose from:
- New York to Bermuda or Canada
- San Diego, California to Baja, Mexico, the Mexican Riviera or Panama Canal
- Galveston, Texas to the Caribbean, the Bahamas or Castaway Cay
- Port Canaveral, Florida to the Bahamas or the Caribbean
Depending on the Disney Cruise you choose, you could make stops in Saint John, New Brunswick or Halifax, Nova Scotia. Mexican cruises offer ports in Mazatlan or Puerto Vallarta. This is one of the best parts of a cruise; it’s like two vacations in one!
We absolutely loved our stop at Disney’s private Island Castaway Cay. I would choose to go to the their island every cruise if that were possible. It is so gorgeous and super relaxing.
Disney Cruise Line – Ships
Disney Cruise Line has four ships, and their attention to detail can’t be beat! Something my family loves about Disney vacations is all the magical touches in the hotels and, of course, in the Resort itself. Nothing is left without a little sprinkling of pixie dust, and a Disney Cruise is no exception. The Disney Cruise itinerary you want will determine which ship you enjoy, but let me tell you a little bit about each one.
Disney Wonder: The Wonder boasts water play in three different themed pools, gourmet dining, Character encounters and classic, modern design. You’ll find entertainment such as movies, musicals and more aboard the Wonder. It is one of the two smaller ships in the Disney Cruise Line, with 11 passenger decks.
Disney Magic: The Magic is Wonder’s sister ship, and offers decor with a nod to Disney’s roots. Aboard the Magic you can view nighttime fireworks at sea, ride the water slide and enjoy Character encounters.
Disney Fantasy: Larger than the Wonder and the Magic, Disney Fantasy has 14 passenger decks. Fantasy has an Art Nouveau esthetic and features Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular. Interior state rooms on the Fantasy have Magical Portholes that allow animated guests to visit you in your room.
Disney Dream: Fantasy’s sister ship, Disney Dream is one of the two larger ships in the Disney Cruise Line. With 14 passenger decks, it also offers fun features such as themed pools and water slides, Magical Portholes and Broadway calibur shows.
All four ships celebrate a number of themes at sea, so check out those details below!
Disney Cruise Line – Themes and Holidays
Disney does holidays right, and Disney Cruise Line lives up to that expectation. Did you know they not only celebrate holidays such as Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas, but they offer themed days at sea as well? Again, it depends on the itinerary you choose, but you can enjoy Marvel Days at Sea, Pirate Night or Star Wars Days at Sea. Plus, ships in the Disney Cruise Line have Bippidi Boppidi Boutique, which will transform guests into princesses with the wave of a wand (with the help of some make up, hair spray and expert stylists).
Disney Cruise Line – Kids’ Clubs
All four ships in the Disney Cruise Line have kids’ club options for nearly all ages. The kids’ clubs provide age-appropriate activities, crafts and even meals on select itineraries. There are four kids’ clubs that are no additional cost, and a fifth that is for the youngest of guests that does have an additional cost.
“It’s a small world” nursery!”: Since this club is for ages 0 – 3, there is an additional fee to use the nursery. Disney counselors provide areas in this nursery to allow little ones to get used to being away from mom and dad, to nap and to play.
Disney’s Oceaneer Club: This club is for ages 3 – 12, and it allows children to stay together regardless of age. Activities are not divided up by age, so siblings can stick together if they prefer. Disney counselors facilitate play areas, reading, movies and games in Oceaneer Club.
Disney’s Oceaneer Lab: This club is connected to Oceaneer Club, and provides activities in a pirate-themed environment for ages 3 – 12. Guided and individual discovery and learning is promoted in the Lab by Disney Counselors.
Edge: This club is for ages 11 – 14, providing them with a hangout under the supervision of Disney counselors. Tweens can play games, watch movies or participate in age-appropriate guided activities.
Vibe: Teens 14 – 17 are invited to gather in this kids’ club, with opportunities to lounge, play games, watch movies and mingle with Disney counselor chaperones present.
Disney Cruise Line – Dining
The number one selling point for a lot of people who consider a Disney Cruise is the complimentary soft drinks! Aboard all Disney Cruise Line ships, soda, juice, tea and other soft drink beverages are no additional charge. Also, room service is complimentary, so take advantage of it if you need to take naps in your cabin or want to have a snack while winding down in the evening reading together or watching a movie.
When you dine onboard during your Disney Cruise, you’ll have the same Cast Member assigned to you each evening. This rotational dining allows the Cast Member to serve you at each of the restaurants you experience and get to know you and your family. Typically you can make dining reservations about four days before your cruise departs, so you can plan special dining experiences at one of the 25 combined options aboard the four different ships. Also, keep in mind that you can check kids in for evening activities and a Disney counselor will come right to your dinner table and escort kids (ages 3 – 12) to one of the kids’ clubs. Then mom and dad can finish dinner and/or enjoy the evening’s performance like it’s date night!
