Are You Wanting a Disney Vacation for Fall Break but Worried About the Crowds? Try an October Cruise!

Look, I get it. October is my absolute FAVORITE time to head to Walt Disney World. But the week of Indigenous Peoples Day is WAY crowded! Like, we waited almost 2 hours for a bus to Saratoga Springs from Magic Kingdom crowded. Once again, that week is Fall Break for a ton of states. Usually, this leads to wall-to-wall people in the parks. So, why not consider an October Cruise instead?

Halloween on the High Seas

You may not get to go to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, but Halloween on the High Seas is its own incredible event that you may even find better than the party!

I’m MOST excited for this! Check out this amazing new character meet-and-greet opportunity! Clarabelle Cow, Minnie Mouse, and Daisy Duck will be dressed up for the first time as the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus! HOW COOL IS THIS?!?!?!

The centerpiece of every ship during Halloween sailings is the signature magical Pumpkin Tree towering over the atrium lobby, each with sprouting Jack-O-Lanterns and flickering lights.

October Cruise - Pumpkin Tree

But aboard the Disney Wish, guests will witness the debut of an all-new Pumpkin Tree in the “Cinderella”-inspired Grand Hall. This enchanted tree that grew perfect gourds with the help of a Wishing Star at night produced the perfect pumpkin that became the coach that carried Cinderella to the Prince’s Ball.

What’s Included in a Disney Cruise?

What’s Included?!

Disney Cruise Line is basically an all-inclusive on the sea. More activities, dining, and entertainment is included in the base price of your cruise than in any other cruise line. And this means you will have LESS to pay once on board. To start, almost all of the ship’s entertainment is available at no cost. This means Broadway-quality shows, movies, including first-run movie screenings, fireworks at sea, and your favorite Disney characters. But you will need to pay extra for premium experiences. Things like the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, Pirates League, or the Royal Court Tea.

What about dining experiences? 24-hour room service, rotational dining in three unique dining rooms, unlimited soft serve ice cream, unlimited coffee, tea, and soda, and quick service bites throughout the ship are all included in the cruise price. You will only need to pay extra for Adult-exclusive dining, bottled water, alcohol, and specialty drinks.

Kids Clubs, including the Oceaneer Club/Oceaneer Lab, for children aged 3-12, Edge, for children aged 11-14, and Vibe, for teenagers aged 14-17, are all included, and supervised, for your kids to go off and enjoy a taste of freedom! Also, nightclubs, lounges, live music, adults-only pool and whirlpool, and the fitness center are all included for adults!

Disney’s Castaway Cay
October Cruise

Castaway Cay offers a family and adult-exclusive beach, all included. You will also enjoy access to beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas, too! And that’s not even mentioning your barbecue lunch, unlimited soft serve ice cream, coffee, tea, and soda! Also, free tram transportation from the ship to the beach.

Castaway Cay will also have live music, your favorite Disney characters, and kids and teens clubs. Again, this is all included in the price of your cruise. You do not have to pay for ANY of this. Maybe you’ll choose to enjoy the walking paths around the island, or take part in the Castaway Cay 5K and receive a finisher medal, or take an adult-exclusive yoga class.

Snorkel gear, floats, and rafts; book Port Adventures; or rent bicycles for additional fees. Bottled water, alcohol, and specialty drinks are also available for an additional cost.

More information about Disney Cruise Line can be found here.

How does RoyalUp work?
  • You will have the opportunity to browse through various stateroom options with associated minimum bids.
  • You select the dollar amount they are willing to pay for the upgrade. Making a bid on multiple categories will increase your chance of being upgraded — but you’ll only pay for one upgrade.
  • Your bid is priced per person and based on two guests per stateroom for the entire length of your cruse. Only the first and second guest will be charged, even if four are sailing (amazing for families with greater than double occupancy!).
  • Offers will be accepted at least 2 days before your sailing and charged to the credit card on file.
What are the benefits of RoyalUp?
  • RoyalUp gives you the opportunity to experience a higher category stateroom or Suite for less.
  • There’s nothing to lose. If your bid is not accepted, you will not be charged any additional amount and remain in the stateroom originally booked.

Disney Wish Details Released!

0 0
Read Time:5 Minute, 47 Second

The newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line Fleet, the Disney Wish, had it’s float out just last week, a major construction milestone, as the ship prepares for it’s Maiden Voyage on July 14. This week, Disney released more details about the new ship, and I, for one, am SO excited to sail! Let’s read about the Disney Wish Details!

Inside Out: Joyful Sweets

Disney Wish Details - Joyful Sweets

Anything Inside Out-related is a winner in my book, and this sweet shop looks amazing! This Inside Out Sweet Shop, which is designed to resemble the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind where her emotions guide her through everyday life, will feature sculpted figures of the film’s five main characters and glowing Memory Orb light fixtures. PHOTO OP!

Disney Wish Details
Inside Out: Joyful Sweets

While I would be happy and content with just the decor, because I LOVE this movie, let’s get into the Disney Wish Details! This sweet shop has 40 flavors of gelato and ice cream, with daily handcrafted gelato specials. These handcrafted specials will be available in amazing combos, like peanut butter pretzel and white chocolate raspberry. You can’t have plain ice cream, though, so there will be plenty of tasty toppings available. There will be FRESH whipped cream, fruit compotes, and syrup, in addition to traditional toppings. Sign me up and say no more!

Disney Wish Details
Emotion Cupcakes
Disney Wish Details
Chocolate Memory Orbs

The shop will serve signature treats inspired by the hit Pixar film. Get your chocolate memory orbs, filled with sweet candy remembrances.

Or maybe you’d prefer a nice cupcake? There are five signature cupcakes available, one to represent each emotion. Joy, a lemon cupcake; Sadness, who is represented by a blueberry cupcake; Disgust, yummy pistachio; Anger, a delectable red velvet; and, of course, loveable Fear, a spirited bubble gum! There will also be specialty macarons and cake pops, in addition to handcrafted truffles, designer cookies, indulgent brownies, and vibrant candy offerings. I just hope they don’t have that gum commercial!

Disney Wish Details – Olaf’s Royal Picnic

Families with kids ages 3-12 may reserve this Frozen summertime picnic pre-sailing, and it does come with an additional fee. Join Olaf, Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff for a fun picnic and sing-along in Arendelle. Kids will receive an assortment of gifts, including a troll plush, picnic blanket, and a custom mandolin. That mandolin will come in handy, when they sing “Reindeer are better than people,” with Kristoff!

DIsney Wish Details
LOOK AT THIS SHIP!!!!

New Immersive and Interactive Entertainment Venues

The Disney Wish will change the way guests interact with cruise ships. There will be many new immersive and interactive spaces for families to play in and enjoy! The Disney Difference!

The Grand Hall

Of all the things planned for the Disney Wish, I think this is the most intriguing. Disney has designed all-new built-in special effects that will magically transform the the entrance atrium into an amazing theater with the first-EVER atrium stage! Look how amazing this is going to be!

Planned entertainment for the Grand Hall includes, via Disney Cruise Blog:

  • A royal greeting will await families as they enter the glittering Grand Hall for the first time. Every child will receive their very own wishing wand upon embarkation, which they will use to make the “First Wish” of their vacation during a special boarding celebration.
  • During the sailing, families can attend a royal gathering of magnificent proportions as Disney Princesses descend into the Grand Hall to meet and greet with guests.
  • The Grand Hall stage will conceal a host of Disney friends during “Who’s Behind the Curtain?”, a playful game show where guests answer questions to reveal the identity of hidden characters.
  • On the final night of every sailing, cruisers will return to the Grand Hall and raise their wands with Fairy Godmother to ignite a spectacular farewell show featuring favorite characters, special effects and lively performances.

I can’t wait. And I can’t get the Fairy Godmother from the Descendants out of my head right now!

luna

But wait, THERE’S MORE. This all new space will feature a two-story LED screen wall, stage and bar. Luna will be a state-of-the-art entertainment hub where families will be able to laugh, play, and compete.

Luna - Family entertainment hub
Luna

Entertainment will include:

  • Villains Game Night” is a witty game show where guests will attempt to answer Disney trivia questions amid the jeers and sneers of nefarious Disney foes, including Cruella de Vil, Gaston, Hades, Maleficent and more, who will join on screen.
  • Disney Songbook” will put guests in the spotlight as they belt out Disney songs and showcase their star talent for a live camera crew, who will project each performance onto the big screen.
  • During the live grand finale event for Disney Uncharted Adventure, an all-new interactive experience that uses guests’ mobile devices to unlock hidden adventures aboard the ship, families will team up with other cruisers to battle an infamous Disney villain.
hero zone

Hero Zone is a futuristic sports arena where physical activity will blend with imagination during action-packed challenges and game show-style competitions for families to take on together.

Families will test their strength, speed and stamina during the Incredi-Games, a high-energy game show featuring an elaborate obstacle course of over-the-top physical challenges, each inspired by the dynamic characters of Pixar’s “The Incredibles.”

  • Heroes will first test their strength by busting through a “brick” wall during Mr. Incredible’s Power Punch.
  • Jack-Jack’s Whack-A Rac will pit players against Rocky and his raccoon friends, who you might remember from “The Incredibles 2.” 
  • Only the most flexible families will conquer the twists and turns of Elastigirl’s Stretch-O-Rama.
  • Family speedsters will be the front-runners of Dash’s Mad Dash Mayhem.
  • Violet’s Force Field Swing will send supers soaring across a lava field. (Remember, we are using our incredible imaginations here!)
  • The strong finish includes a cool down on Frozone’s Ice Slide, where heroes will ascend to the highest peak and slide down the icy slope to victory.

This game show-style experience will feature high-energy hosts, adrenaline-pumping music, special effects and more! And there will be plenty of balcony space for people to just sit and watch the games!

This will also be the home of Jack-Jack’s Incredible Diaper Dash! Now with more fanfare than ever before, this beloved competition will offer terrific tots the chance to compete for the coveted title of Diaper Dash Champion as they speed-crawl across a 20-foot track amid the cheers (and chuckles) of family, friends and adoring fans.

The space will also serve as a free-play gym, with basketball, soccer, and tabletop games, like ping pong, air hockey, foosball, and more!

The Wish sets sail July 14, 2022. Contact me today to book your cruise!

Here’s the latest news from Disney Cruise Line!

Disney Announces Second Year-Round Home Port

Port Everglades, located in Broward County, has been named as Disney’s second year-round homeport. Beginning in 2023, one ship will be homeported in Port Everglades, and a second, seasonal ship in 2025. The port will have a 15-year partnership, and gives Disney a dedicated terminal in a market that will have direct highway access and one of the nation’s fastest growing airports in Fort Lauderdale. Disney’s original homeport is, of course, Port Canaveral.

All-New Live Entertainment Exclusively Aboard the Disney Wish

A Treasure Retold: ‘Disney the Little Mermaid’

“Disney The Little Mermaid” will be an original Broadway-style stage adaptation of the renowned 1989 Disney Animation film developed exclusively for the Disney Wish. During this one-of-a-kind theatrical production, audiences will rediscover the iconic scenes, acclaimed music and beloved characters of “The Little Mermaid” while experiencing the story like never before.

This one-of-a-kind theatrical production of the 1989 Disney Classic “The Little Mermaid” was developed exclusively for the Disney Wish. This will be a modern-day retelling of the story told by Storytellers who have discovered an Enchanted Treasure Chest, including:

  • new orchestrations of your favorite songs
  • playful scenic designs and state-of-the-art video projections will transform the Walt Disney Theater into a 360-degree under the sea adventure
  • cutting-edge puppetry

An Embarkation Celebration: ‘Disney Seas the Adventure’

This original musical spectacular will welcome guests on their first night aboard this brand new ship. This musical voyage into some of your favorite Disney stories. Captain Minnie will pass the helm to Goofy, who will set sail into uncharted waters on a journey to discover his inner captain. Goofy’s journey will, of course, include interactions with Disney and Pixar characters.

  • Tiana will teach Goofy the power of hard work to make a dream come true with a show-stopping performance of “Almost There”
  • Crush and Squirt will show Goofy how to “go with the flow”
  • Exclusive to this show only, Elsa, Moana, and Merida will perform a power medley of “Let it Go,” “How Far I’ll Go,” and “Touch the Sky,” inspiring Goofy to head “into the unknown”
  • when Goofy loses his way, as Goofy tends to do, and begins to doubt himself, Hercules and other Disney Heroes will step in to help Goofy find the courage to “Go the Distance!”

And to end the show, Captain Minnie and Goofy, joined by a cavalcade of Disney Characters, will lead guests to the Grand Hall for an unforgettable sendoff experience – the ULTIMATE “Kiss Goodnight” to close out the first day on board!

Signature Pirate Night with Rock-and-Roll Twist

As the only cruise line to feature fireworks at sea, Disney Cruise Line lights up the sky to dazzle guests with the largest, awe-inspiring fireworks extravaganza presented aboard a cruise ship. The skies above the Disney Dream explode with brilliant colors during “Buccaneer Blast!” – a pyrotechnic spectacular choreographed to a dramatic score featuring songs from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, “Peter Pan” and the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction at the Disney theme parks. (Todd Anderson, photographer)

An all-new version of the popular nighttime deck celebration with a rock-and-roll extravaganza and fireworks at sea! This party is hosted by Captain Redd, a descendent of the fiery Red Head from the popular Pirates of the Caribbean ride. Pirate’s Rockin’ Parlay Party will feature live music, remarkable stunts, special effects, and plenty of surprises, including a fantastic fireworks display with a score from the music of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise!

It’s time for a Disney Cruise Line Update! It’s been a while, and it’s #SailingSaturday, so there’s no time like the present! It’s the perfect time to book a cruise, and I am definitely here to help you! Disney Cruise Line is one of the best in the business! Let’s get into it!

Disney Wonder Resumed Sailing from California on October 1, 2021, and Galveston November 19, 2021

Photo: Disney

Great news for west coast cruisers! The Wonder has returned and has resumed sailing, including a November 5 Panama Canal sailing. Sailings from Galveston will resume November 19. Contact me today for more information on sailings on the Disney Wonder!

Additionally, the Disney Fantasy will begin 7-night and longer voyages out of Port Canaveral beginning Oct. 9, 2021.

On Castaway Cay, guests can get their photos with magic including Sebastian, Hei Hei, and Flounder. All guests, both on board and on Castaway Cay, can get some pixie dust in the form of Mickey-shaped clouds. As with all cruise photos, these can be purchased digitally or printed at Shutters on board each ship. Magic Shots are also included in our unlimited digital photo package, which can be booked in advance for a 15% discount.

A Change to Dining Rotation and Key to the World Cards

DCL will no longer be printing dining rotations on your Key to the World Cards. Instead, guests will be encouraged to check the My Plans section of the Navigator App. Because things have changed, dining is not just a rotation, but your party is given an exact time, in order to manage crowds and physical distancing. The Navigator App will now have information on restaurant rotation, arrival time, table numbers, menus, and even recommended attire.

New Kids Adventures Coming to the Disney Wish

The Oceaneer Club, for ages 3-12, has already shown it’s princesses and super heroes. Now, some all-new experiences coming to the Disney Wish!

Photo: Disney

Star Wars: Cargo Bay will be an all-new augmented reality experience featuring the peculiar creatures and legendary characters of the Star Wars Universe. Kids will become Creature Handlers, and they will learn to care for exotic species from around the galaxy, including porgs, loth cats, worrts, and more! They will get an augmented reality datapad to use during the cruise, and that will enable them to track and care for their creature. And they will be joining a special adventure to deliver two stowaways to Rey, Chewbacca, and the Resistance. During the interactive “Star Wars: Creature Challenge” experience, the newly minted caretakers will be put to the test as they help feed the lifelike creatures and encounter some of the most dangerous beings in the galaxy. When things go awry, they’ll need to call on the expertise of Rey and Chewbacca —and even channel the Force —to secure the ship from destruction.

Photo: Disney

Mickey and Minnie Captain’s Deck is a nautical playground inspired by the colors, icons and magic of Disney Cruise Line, for the littlest cruisers. This brand-new space will be filled with an array of maritime-themed physical and sensory-style games and activities, such as pipe slides and crawl-throughs, ship’s wheels, “busy boxes” fashioned as ship controls and cushy life preserver seating areas.

At select times throughout the voyage, the space will be open to little ones’ families for group play, and the toddlers from It’s a Small World Nursery will also get dedicated access to the club to explore, learn and play with Mickey and Minnie.

The signature experience will be “Minnie’s Captain Academy,” a high-energy training session for kids to exercise their bodies (through playful games, dancing and maritime “drills”) and their minds, testing their imagination and ingenuity during a series of challenges tied to STEAM principles (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics). Captain Minnie will inspect their progress and officially declare them honorary captains!

Disney Wish will have NEW Spaces for Teens and Tweens

At Edge, tweens ages 11 to 14 will have fun, make friends and play games in a bright, colorful hangout inspired by a chic New York City loft. The club will include cozy furnishings, comfortable niches for solo gaming and movie watching, and a soda bar.

One of our favorite details is the indoor solarium area, which will feature a sunny overhead skylight effect, carpet patterned with fresh grass and daisies, a back wall mural of a bright blue sky, and games inspired by a colorful outdoor city park.

Throughout Edge, graphic art displays known as “photo walls” will provide ample opportunities for tweens to capture cool, shareable vacation pics that will surely be the envy of their friends back home.

At Vibe, teens ages 14 to 17 will meet new friends, watch movies, play games and participate in entertaining activities created just for them. Inspired by a Parisian artists’ loft, this stylish space will feature classic architectural elements like regal French columns and paneled walls covered with whimsical pop art murals and colorful graffiti, as well as a traditional French Morris column plastered with Disney-inspired travel posters.

The décor will feature an electric retro twist, with vibrant neon signs and funky pop art throughout, accentuated by a larger-than-life, brightly painted Mickey Mouse statue. Combine all of that with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean, and every angle in Vibe will offer a selfie-worthy backdrop for the trendiest teens on the high seas.

For the first time on a Disney ship, the Disney Wish will feature a third retreat for tweens and teens: The Hideaway. This hip new hangout will offer older kids and young adults another place to relax, sip a smoothie, listen to music and more in a posh setting complete with a dance floor and DJ booth – perfect for karaoke contests and dance competitions.

The Hideaway will be adorned in a vibrant color palette, retro-inspired design details, a stylized “Hiya, pal” mural and disco ball lights. Adjacent to Vibe, this flexible venue can be opened to the teen club, closed off for tween activities and even reserved especially for guests ages 18 to 20.

For the first time in Disney Cruise Line history, guests will be able to reserve a stay in the Disney Wish Funnel Suite! This suite is IN THE FUNNEL of the ship. Via Disney: ” With nearly 2,000 square feet of living space, including a spacious upper-level loft, the Wish Tower Suite will sleep up to eight guests with two main bedrooms, a children’s room, a library that converts to a bedroom, and four-and-a-half bathrooms. The magnificent living room will be flanked by an open dining area and a bar, all offering extraordinary views across the upper decks to the horizon through an expansive two-story window wall.” I’m pretty sure that’s bigger than my house!

Unveiling of the Disney Wish!!!!!

0 0
Read Time:3 Minute, 49 Second

MASSIVELY HUGE NEWS from Disney Cruise Line this morning! Disney has officially unveiled their fifth cruise ship, the Disney Wish, this morning, announcing it will officially set sail on June 9, 2022.

Starting with the water entertainment, Disney has created new, exciting spaces for one and all. First is the first-of-its-kind attraction at sea, the AquaMouse! From the brief description, it sounds a lot like Mickey’s Runaway Railway, only on a waterslide, but we’ll all have to wait and see just EXACTLY what this attraction at sea has in store for us all! Also new will be a Toy Story Splash Pad for little ones (and, hopefully, me). There will be bigger and more family spaces to swim and play and, of course, the Adults-Only area. I’m already excited and this is just the beginning!!

Up next, FOOD! There are 3 new dining concepts, from dinner and a show to classic Hollywood! “Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure” will be a first-of-it’s-kind dinner theater experience, featuring Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf. Worlds of Marvel will allow you to dine while you solve a mystery as AN AVENGER!!!!! And 1923 will celebrate The Walt Disney Company. They all sound amazing, and I want to spend every day as an Avenger, please!

There is SO MUCH MORE, but we’re going to have to wait to see what else is in store for us! Ok, so…if you’re currently a Platinum, Gold or Silver Castaway Club member, OR a Disney Vacation Club Member OR an Adventure Insider with Adventures by Disney, be among the VERY FIRST to book a new Summer 2022 Disney Wish cruise before they go on sale to the general public on May 27, 2021!! This special early booking window is exclusive to the inaugural season of the Disney Wish and includes an extended booking window for Platinum Castaway Club members based on their total number of sailings. All Castaway Club members should sign in to their account before booking begins to verify their Castaway Club status and their number of sailings. Due to anticipated high call volume, booking through a travel agent—or online at Disneycruise.com beginning May 20—is strongly recommended.

BOOKING WINDOWS:

If you want to book the very first sailing aboard the Disney Wish on June 9, 2022, you should be aware that a non-refundable deposit of 20% must be paid by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on the day of booking.
