A Disney Theme Park on the Sea
If you’ve ever been to a Disney theme park like Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort, you’ve experienced the magic of Disney and their eye for detail. That magic and attention to detail is why you should pick a Disney cruise! Well, that and the fact that more things are included on a Disney cruise than most other cruise ships. Still not sure? Here’s all the fantastic things you get when you choose a Disney cruise sailing and book with Get Away Today.
Disney Cruise Line’s Free Room Service
We already mentioned that dining and food are included on your Disney cruise, but did you know that room service is included in your booking? While most other cruise lines charge an extra for this service or only include it for those who have booked pricier cabins, Disney Cruise Line includes room service for all guests. Imagine a day of sleeping in with breakfast in bed or a quick late night snack—just order it right to your cabin. It’s also perfect for when the little ones need to nap and you’re still hungry. Or, it’s a great way to start a tradition of cookies and milk before bed while on vacation. It can’t get much easier than having your tradition hand-delivered to you each night! Luckily for us, Disney Cruise Line includes this perk for all families, no matter which cabin category you chose.
Disney Cruise Line Offers Free Soft Drinks
This is another amenity that so many cruise lines like to charge more for, but not the Disney Cruise Line! You not only have access to unlimited soft drinks during your meals, but also around the pool area on the main deck. Water and different types of fruit juices are also included at the refill station. The best part is that you can choose to bring, or buy, a refillable mug to carry with you all throughout the ship. You can save a few dollars by bringing your own or let the kids pick out their own to double as a souvenir from the best cruise ever! This is a great value when you consider other cruise lines not only charge per kid, but per day too.We love doing this at Disney Aulani as well!
Disney Cruise Line Broadway-Caliber Shows
Disney never disappoints in the entertainment department and the Disney cruises are no exception. You’ll find amazing Broadway-caliber productions on each ship. The Disney Dream hosts “Beauty and the Beast” Live Stage Show, a musical production inspired by Disney’s live-action adaptation of the animated classic. The Disney Magic is home to Tangled: The Musical. On board the Disney Wonder you’ll find the Frozen, A Musical Spectacular or you can choose the Disney Fantasy if you’d rather see Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular. On the Disney Wish you’ll be treated to “Disney Seas the Adventure”, a lively musical celebration, featuring favorite Disney and Pixar characters. No matter which ship you pick, you’re sure to love the signature performances! Don’t forget that you can even catch first-run movies in each of the ships’ Buena Vista Theatre. There’s entertainment for kids of all ages on the Disney cruise ships!
Disney Cruise Line Fireworks at Sea
Even in 2024, Disney Cruise Line is still the only major cruise line to offer firework displays at sea. The display is exclusively offered during Pirate Night, where your family will get to dress up like first-rate Buccaneers and dance off with some classic characters. After a few dances and games, prepare to be amazed as you experience a firework display only Disney could put together. It’s important to note that not all itineraries include Pirate Night or the firework display, so make sure to check with your Get Away Today agent when choosing your itinerary if this is something your family doesn’t want to miss!
Disney Cruise Line Excursions
You may feel like you’re having so much fun that you don’t need to leave the ship, but there is so much to explore when in port. Your family will love all the different sights at each stop. Plus, you can choose to purchase additional adventures on land, known as excursions. We always recommend booking those with your cruise directly, instead of an outside vendor, for two reasons. The first is that since you booked with the cruise ship, they’ll make sure to wait for you if any delays happen while bringing you back to the ship. If you were to book with an outside vendor and not make it back to the ship before sailing time, your family would be stuck at that port. The second reason is because Disney cruises include some special touches on their excursions. These special touches include educated guides as well as stops that aren’t often seen by other tours, making those memories even more special for your family. You might think you have to pay so much more for these, but you don’t. In most cases, the Disney cruise excursions price out only a few dollars more than other cruise lines, if not the same. It’s only a slight difference in price, but a huge difference in experience!
Disney Cruise’s Family-Friendly Atmosphere
This may seem like a no-brainer, but Disney cruises are famous for being family-friendly while still offering adults-only activities. Your kids will love the different clubs and activities offered for each age range, plus you’ll know they’re completely safe running around the ship. Why? Well, Disney doesn’t allow any adults into the kids’ club facilities once the cruise begins. It’s the perfect environment to let your kids have fun while you relax in the adults-only pool or club areas! You can always join your kids on the sports deck or in the arcade to have some family-friendly competition, too.
As you can see, a Disney cruise is never a bad choice, especially when you can save by putting down a deposit early. It’s a great way to lock in the best price for your cruise without paying for everything up front. Plus, if you’re booking for later in the year, it gives you more time to save since full payments aren’t due until 90 days before you sail. There’s no better time to book a Disney cruise than now, so book online or give our cruise experts a call at 877-510-2929. We can’t wait to help you book your most magical vacation yet!
