It begins the instant you step aboard. You and your entire family are greeted as honored friends by a host of Disney Cruise Line Cast Members. A magical moment that sets a magical tone for all that’s to come.
While you should expect big things from Disney magic, you’ll also find that same kind of magic in every detail great and small.
Disney Cruise Line has selected the most stunning destinations - in the most exciting regions around the world - for cruises you and your family will not soon forget. Enjoy the service and expertise of our dedicated crew as we guide you in your exploration of international ports of call, from the Caribbean to Alaska to Europe and beyond. Discover, in detail, the world of delights waiting for you.
Disney Cruise Line has always set sail on creativity, innovation and unexpected surprises that delight kids, adults and families alike. Now, Disney Magic is even more magical, with new spaces and new enhancements from stem to stern, making this ship of dreams come true even more magical for all who come aboard.
In the all-new Disney’s Oceaneer Club, kids enter the top secret S.H.I.E.L.D. Headquarters and become members of the Avengers team inside the high-tech MARVEL’s Avengers Academy. Iron Man’s suit, Thor’s hammer and Captain America’s shield all await you in a space that puts you inside the Avengers’ super cool heli-carrier!
Kids are also invited to play in Andy’s Room, much as it appeared in the Disney•Pixar hit Toy Story. Here in this larger-than-life playroom, there’s fun with Hamm, Mr. Potato Head and even a Slinky Dog slide. Disney’s Oceaneer Club enhancements include Mickey Mouse Club, where kids play games with Mickey, Minnie and pals; and Pixie Hollow, where they’ll explore Tinker Bell’s pixie world.
For the thrill-seekers in the family, there are two new slides on deck - the new AquaDunk, a breathtaking waterslide that begins with a near-vertical drop and then loops riders out over the water and back, and Twist ‘n’ Spout that loops riders to a watery splashdown. Also new, kids can conduct water experiments designed by Huey, Dewey and Louie in the AquaLab pool and infants and toddlers will love Nephews’ Splash Zone, a bubbly water playground.
This much fun will make anyone hungry - so come discover an all-new experience in family dining at Carioca’s. Celebrating the South American settings showcased in the classic Disney film The Three Caballeros, this eye-popping restaurant features a Brazilian marketplace-themed entryway and floor patterns reminiscent of the beach sidewalks of Rio.
Adult-only spaces are an important part of every Disney Cruise Line ship. On the Disney Magic, an all-new entertainment district called After Hours will entertain adults with music, dancing and entertainment. Three clubs including O’Gill’s sports bar, Keys piano bar and Fathoms, the brand-new hotspot everyone will be talking about, are sure to entertain! Plus, adults savor the dining experience in Palo, an adult-exclusive experience.
Disney Cruise Line staterooms are among the first in the industry to be tailored especially for families, pioneering innovative comforts and modern features you won’t find with any other cruise line. Ranging from cozy private lodgings, to rooms with sweeping views, to grand and richly appointed suites, there’s a category to fit your need.
The "Disney difference" can be found in every detail. Most rooms feature:
And of course, enjoy the unsurpassed personal attention and in-room service from our legendary staff and crew throughout the stay.
Note: Guests traveling with wheelchairs, electric mobility scooters or electric convenience vehicles (ECVs) should consider a wheelchair-accessible stateroom to accommodate their needs.

Deck Parties: Deck parties are spectacular, open-air music and dance extravaganzas that happen on the upper open-air deck of the ship. Starring many of your favorite Disney Characters alongside Disney Cruise Cast Members, Deck Parties invite you and your family to join in the excitement and be a part of the show.
Movies: On all Disney Ships, there are 2 large, state-of-the art theatre venues that screen first-run films and other popular motion pictures.

Equipped with the latest digital 3-D projectors, experience the fun and excitement of both new and classic films during your cruise with some special surprises - adding a fourth dimension to your Disney cruise movie-going experience.
Character Experiences: A Disney cruise offers you what no other cruise line can - memorable experiences with Disney Characters*. Say hello and shake hands with Cinderella, Snow White and Stitch. Share warm hugs and hearty laughs with Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. Receive one-of-a-kind autographs from the likes of Donald Duck and Daisy Duck. And pose for pictures alongside the lovable, but scheming chipmunks, Chip ’n Dale.
You don’t have to visit a Disney Park to meet and greet favorite pals. Disney Characters love to cruise! Be on the look-out for Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Captain Hook and more - as they make their way both around the ship and appear at designated places.
Plus, on all Disney cruises, a final farewell reception lets you share goodbye hugs and snap some last-minute pictures of your favorite Characters, Crew Members and stars of the Live Shows before your cruise vacation draws to an end.

Disney Cruise Line, the undisputed leader in children’s cruise entertainment, offers dedicated clubs and lounges plus customized interactive programs for kids, tweens and teens ages 3 to 17 years. Disney was the first cruise line to offer almost an entire deck for children’s activities and a dedicated space just for teens. Plus, Disney has some of the industry’s longest operating hours for children’s activities. And while kids enjoy the most extensive youth activity areas at sea, parents can enjoy the ship thanks to an onboard communication service allowing kids to contact their parents anywhere on the ship.
This lavish children’s activity center is the ideal place for children 3 to 12 to dress up as a favorite Disney character, play computer games and enjoy a wide variety of supervised themed activities throughout the day. While some activities are recommended for certain age groups, participation is based on a child’s interest level and maturity - not age. As a result of this, siblings and friends can play together without restriction. The central Library is the main gathering place and a portal to 4 themed "storybook worlds" within Disney’s Oceaneer Club, including Andy’s Room, MARVEL’s Avengers Academy, Mickey Mouse Club, and Pixie Hollow.
This activity center dedicated to adventure and exploration is the ideal place for children ages 3 to 12 to play games, perform educational experiments, access computer games and enjoy a wide variety of supervised activities. Kids 8 to 12 years of age also can check themselves in and out of Disney’s Oceaneer Lab at their parents’ discretion.
This special lounge is available exclusively to tweens-children 11 to 14 years of age. This interactive space is designed to look like the ship’s bridge where pre-teens can steer a virtual ship, play videogames, watch television and participate in arts and crafts. Tweens can also sing karaoke, go on scavenger hunts and take part in special themed nights.
It’s "teens-only" in this exclusive space for those ages 14 through 17. Here, teenage Guests can listen to music, watch television, play videogames or take part in a number of other activities chaperoned by some of the coolest counselors at sea.
