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?

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.

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.

Read Time:4 Minute, 16 Second

Travel is back and, with that, we are seeing the return of some of the most popular events. Let’s take a look at Marvel Day at Sea on Disney Cruise Line!!

Sailing out of Miami, the Disney Magic is offering 3 different cruises for Marvel Day at Sea. You can choose a 5-Night Western Caribbean Cruise, with stops at Castaway Cay and Cozumel; 5-Night Bahamian Cruise, with 2 stops at Castaway Cay and a stop in Nassau; and a 5-Night Western Caribbean Cruise, with stops at Castaway Cay and George Town, Grand Cayman.

I want to look at the Bahamian Cruise today. So for a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 children ages 12 and 8, a sailing on February 28-March 5, 2022, with a Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah will cost around $6,300. So what does that include?

ACCOMMODATIONS

Deluxe Family Stateroom – extra beds

Deluxe Family Stateroom
Private Verandah

First and foremost, the accommodations aboard all Disney Cruise Line ships are amazing! The Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah features a Queen bed, single convertible sofa, upper berth single-pull-down bed, and single wall pull-down bed, a split bathroom, and a rectangular tub with shower. PLUS you will have a private verandah! But what else is included in a Disney Cruise?

ENTERTAINMENT

There is plenty of entertainment on board ALL Disney Cruises, and it’s all included in the price! From Broadway-quality shows, to movie screenings, to pools, splash pads, and water slides, there’s sure to be something for everyone!

There are alcohol packages, high-end dining reservations, and more that cost extra, but you can easily board a cruise that you paid for in advance, and not spend another dime!

KIDS CLUBS

All Disney Cruise Ships have plenty of things for the smallest travelers to enjoy themselves and make new friends! The Oceaneer Club/Oceaneer Lab is a place for children ages 3-12. From story time with Princesses, to Avengers training, to flying the Millennium Falcon, your kids will never be bored!

And what about tweens and teens? Well, tweens ages 11-14 can head down to Edge, while teens ages 14-17 can make new friends and hang out at Vibe! Video games, karaoke, coffee bars, and more. Even the most cynical teen is guaranteed to crack the tiniest of smiles!

ADULT-EXCLUSIVE ACTIVITIES

From Nightclubs, bars, adult-only pools and whirlpools, there are plenty of ways to enjoy yourselves while the kids are at the kids clubs! Pay for a spa session, or an alcohol package, and even an occasional beverage tasting. Disney Cruise Line has something for everyone!

CASTAWAY CAY

Disney’s privately-owned island, Castaway Cay, has plenty to do for everyone! There is both a family and adult-only beach; waterslides and splash zones; beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas; walking paths, Castaway Cay 5k and medallion, and adult-only yoga; lunch, unlimited ice cream, unlimited coffee, tea, and soda, and tram transportation ALL INCLUDED IN THE PRICE OF YOUR CRUISE. For an extra fee on the island, you can rent snorkel gear, floats, rafts, bicycles, and more!

MARVEL DAY AT SEA

So, as the name of the cruise implies, there will be at least one day at sea, and that day WILL include Marvel!

What does that entail? You can meet your favorite Marvel Super Heroes, including Spiderman, Thor and Loki, Star-Lord Gamora and Groot, Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel. Guests are encouraged to bring their own costumes for a Super Hero Costume Celebration in the atrium! And OH BOY, wait til you see how Mickey and his pals bring their character game!

At the Marvel’s Avengers Academy in the Oceaneer Club, younger guests will take part in Marvel-themed games, activities and crafts. Spider Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Thor will teach them what the true qualities of being a hero are.

Doctor Strange will host an interactive show. It will allow children to train in the “fundamentals of the Mystic Arts.” In completion of this training, his new young apprentices will receive a certificate to prove their knowledge in the Mystic Arts! After their training a battle breaks out, and Doctor Strange needs the help of his new apprentices to defeat the Dark Dimension!

Guests will be able to catch the latest and fan favorite Marvel movies while onboard, plus viewings of some Marvel television shows!

The cruise staff will host trivia competitions throughout the day, plus teach you how to draw your favorite super heroes.

In case that isn’t enough, guests will enjoy special food & beverage items and merchandise during their cruise, plus an action-packed deck party and show featuring over a dozen Marvel super heroes!
