Disney Cruise Line
Magic and enchantment await you onboard the family-friendly, happy and everlasting ships of Disney Cruise Line. Not to anyone’s surprise, Disney Cruise Line is quite popular among families with children and teens. However, it is also a great choice for adults, with the incorporation of adults-only areas (such as bars, nightclubs, specialty restaurants and spa areas).
Of the four ships currently in Disney’s fleet, Disney Magic and Disney Wonder are 83,000-ton sister ships that feature an amazing range of onboard activities for everyone. Sister ships Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, the fleet’s largest, debuted in 2011 and 2012 respectively, introducing new features such as the AquaDuck water coaster.
Among the highlights aboard each Disney cruise ship are spacious staterooms with split bathrooms, Disney Broadway-style musicals, Disney Digital 3-D movies, swimming pools, youth clubs, nightclubs and lounges. Of course, while on a Disney cruise you're sure to encounter some of the most popular Disney characters while onboard…great for a photo op!
Disney Cruise Line Staterooms
The accommodations onboard all Disney cruise ships are well-appointed, comfortable and most have split bathrooms (a great feature for families traveling together). Ensuring that families can travel in the same room together, all ships have staterooms that can accommodate anywhere from 3 to 5 guests, as well as suites that have a capacity for up to 7 guests.
Concierge Suites are the most appealing accommodations onboard, featuring 1 to 2 bedrooms, a private and spacious veranda, and extra premium amenities. Verandah staterooms, also great for families, are perfect for those who want to wake up and privately enjoy the beautiful ocean air or unwind to it at night. Ocean view and inside staterooms are also available for travelers seeking simpler accommodations. No matter your budget and your needs, you can rest assured that there is the perfect room onboard Disney Cruise Line for you.

Dining onboard Disney cruises is a true adventure in itself, as Disney features a unique “rotational” dining schedule.

Animator’s Palate, found onboard all four ships, features a live and innovative dinner show starring some of the most beloved Disney characters. Other main dining venues found onboard Disney cruise ships include Lumiere’s, Rapunzel’s Royal Table, and Enchanted Garden, all of which feature their own live entertainment and hidden surprises. Sodas served during dinner time in the main restaurants are complimentary. 24-hour room service is also a convenient option that’s also available on all ships.

Why Choose Disney Cruise Line?
One-of-a-Kind Experiences for Kids & Teens
Unsurprisingly, Disney Cruise Line features an incredible youth program onboard every ship, split into different age categories. While on a Disney cruise your kids will make Disney memories that will be remembered for years to come. Disney Cruise Line also offers the longest youth program operating hours at sea, so the fun doesn’t have to end for kids; and parents can also enjoy a night out knowing their kids are well taken care of and having fun.
At Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Disney’s Oceanaeer Lab, children ages 3-12 years old can participate in a variety of activities hosted by specially trained, caring Disney counselors. Among the many activities available are storytelling, virtual games, dress-up, arts and crafts, Disney movies, and themed games. The kid’s clubs are open until late and provide kid meals (during lunch and dinner hours) at no extra charge. Most other cruise line youth programs close at various times throughout the day and charge an hourly fee per child after 10 p.m.
Tweens and teens can hang and chill in their own exclusive spaces until even later with an assortment of activities available (like karaoke, video game challenges, trivia shows, dancing and tons more) – all while being supervised by the cool Disney staff. For little-ones ages 3 months up to 3 years, daycare is available at “It’s a Small World” nursery, found onboard all ships.
Staterooms Designed with Families in Mind
Because Disney Cruise Line is an especially popular product among families, they provide large accommodations onboard all of their ships. You can rest in absolute comfort with extra storage and split bathrooms in most rooms, making getting ready easier for everyone. Privacy curtains, sofa beds, in-room Disney movies and attentive service form housekeeping ensure your stay will be smooth sailing. Guests in large travel parties can even request adjoining rooms!
Pampering & Relaxation for Adults
Sure, Disney Cruise Line is a favorite of families and children, but it’s also very popular with adults that want some “alone time.” Parents can enjoy time to themselves, to relax or let loose, while they can rest assured knowing that their kids are being taken care of by the well-trained Disney staff. Escape to the privacy of Disney’s fabulous adults-only spaces, including the Senses Spa & Salon, where you can treat yourselves to a couples’ massage in a private spa villa. The Quiet Cove Pool, another great place to relax, features a whirlpool and outdoor bars. For a romantic dinner you can spend some time at the elegant, adults-only Palo (or Remy on Dream and Fantasy). Adults will also be able to dance the night away in any of the nightclubs and lounges on each Disney cruise ship.
What's New for Disney Cruise Line?
Disney recently announced that it has increased the number of upcoming ships from two to three, revealing that these ships will debut in 2021, 2022 and 2023. All three ships are expected to maintain Disney’s traditional homage to classical ocean cruising while offering exciting new features, more technology, and even more Disney elements than ever before! Each ship is slated to weigh in at 140,000-gross tons, which will make them the largest ships in the fleet, surpassing Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. They will also be powered by liquefied natural gas, one of the cleanest fuels in the world.
Disney Wonder entered a one-month dry dock in September 2016. Enhancements included the addition of Marvel Super Hero Academy, a brand-new stage show based on Disney’s smash hit “Frozen,” dining venues such as Tiana’s Place Restaurant and Cheers English Pub, and even more!
In March 2016, Disney announced plans for the construction of two additional cruise ships. Each is planned to be approximately 135,000 gross tons and boast 1,250 guest staterooms, these ships will not only be the newest additions to Disney’s fleet, but their largest as well. The ships are scheduled to be completed in 2021 and 2022, respectively.
After a 2013 refurbishment, Disney Magic received a thorough face lift, including a new three-story water slide. This ship became Disney’s first vessel to feature experiences with Marvel characters, like Marvel’s Avengers Academy (as Marvel is now a part of the Walt Disney Company family).
In very exciting news, Disney Cruise Line started offering cruises from New York, with departures available since May 25, 2012. Disney Magic did 8-night Bahamas & Florida cruises, 5-night Canada & New England cruises, as well as a few 2-night Cruises to Nowhere. Starting on September 22, 2012, Disney Magic began doing a total of twelve 7-night cruises from Galveston, Texas to the Western Caribbean. Disney Fantasy, sister ship to Disney Dream, debuted in April of 2012; at 128,000-tons, this ship is substantially larger than the already large (83,000 tons each) Disney ships that were previously the sole members of the fleet (Disney Magic and Disney Wonder).
In all, this expansion of Disney’s fleet more than doubled their overall passenger capacity. These new ships are purposely built with families in mind, featuring specially designed areas and activities for each member of the family to allow for both quality time together and wonderful individual experiences. The focus is to provide a setting where families can reconnect, adults can recharge and kids can immerse themselves in worlds only Disney can create.
