If you ask us, the holidays can’t come soon enough. From the twinkling home decor to the heartwarming memories created with family—there’s a reason it’s called “the most wonderful time of the year!” The only thing better than celebrating with your loved ones is doing it with a touch of Disney magic. If you’re looking to kick off the season with an extra special activity, you should consider setting sail on Disney Cruise Line’s Very Merrytime Cruise!
Starting early November, Disney Cruise Line takes their vacation experience to the next level by adding sparkle and holiday cheer to their ships. In addition to the royal treatment guests usually receive, they can indulge in a “turkey day” meal, gush over “snow flurries,” and so much more.
The ships host one-of-a-kind holiday events during this time, including Santa’s Winter Wonderland Ball. Your little one’s jaws will drop when they walk into the atrium lobby of the ship and see Santa and Mrs. Claus welcoming them aboard. The celebration also includes Broadway-style performances, Disney characters in holiday garb, and an appearance by everyone’s favorite Frozen sisters.
Another moment you won’t want to miss is Mickey’s Tree Lighting Magic Ceremony. On the first night of the cruise, Disney characters sing holiday carols with guests and gather to light a glittering tree that stands three decks tall. Does it get more festive than that?!
From Dickens-inspired carolers to building gingerbread houses as a family, there is holiday fun to be had in every corner of the ship. And when you and your kiddo disembark onto Castaway Cay in the Bahamas, the celebration continues with “snow” and holiday island music.
These memorable Very Merrytime Cruises run from November 9th through December 24th—and you better believe you can find us climbing aboard!
