Disney Cruise Line is well known for its attention to detail, imaginative storytelling and world class customer service. While sailing on one of Disney Cruise Line’s spectacular cruise ships you will enjoy delicious food, amazing ports of call, and exciting onboard activities. While planning our Disney Cruise Line vacation, I was so surprised to learn everything that was included in the cost of a Disney Cruise. One of my favorite things that’s included is all the entertainment options available! Entertainment abounds onboard including amusing deck parties, Broadway-style musicals, and dazzling fireworks at sea. Let’s take a look at all the amazing entertainment waiting for you on your next Disney Cruise Line vacation.
Whether its as you are sailing away from the port or enjoying the festivities during pirate night, Disney Cruise Line knows how to throw a deck party. There are numerous deck parties on various ships, each one entertaining and amusing for the whole family.
Some of these thrilling deck parties include:
- “Sailing Away” (Disney Dream & Disney Fantasy) – Start your vacation off with this dance party that includes special visits from Captain Mickey and the gang as your cruise sets sail towards your memorable vacation.
- “Mickey’s Sail-A-Wave Party! … A Bon Voyage Celebration” (Disney Magic & Disney Wonder) – Let the confetti fly and get your dancing shoes ready because it’s time to wave goodbye to the real world and set sail with Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Donald as you start your vacation with this energetic deck party. The DJ will pump out the latest dance mix hits as you get into vacation mode before the countdown to the horn blow as your ship leaves port. You could even see yourself on the big screen as concert video cameras capture guests dancing to the beat!

Delicious Dining Experiences:
Mealtime onboard a Disney Cruise is a special time. You get to reconnect as a family while you reminisce on all the fun you had that day, enjoy some seriously tasty food, and you get to chat with your amazing dining room servers who become a part of the family as you cruise. To add even more memories to your dining experience, Disney cruise line has some restaurants onboard that are as entertaining as the food is delicious.

Rivaling any Broadway show, each cruise ship has a distinct and enchanting line up of live musicals nightly. These shows bring some of your favorite Disney films to life on stage with talented actors and magical special effects.
Musicals that you can enjoy include:
- “Beauty and the Beast” (Disney Dream) – Inspired by the popular live-action movie released a few years ago, the beautiful story of Belle and the Beast comes alive through superb acting, high-definition projections, and vibrant scenery. Let’s not forget the unbelievable puppetry that brings to life characters such as Mrs. Potts, Lumiere, and Cogsworth.

In addition, Disney Cruise Line also offers entertaining themed cruises throughout the year to ramp up the fun! There are holiday cruises such as Halloween on the High Seas or the Very Merrytime Cruises that bring the magic of these holidays to the open seas with characters dressed in festive attire, holiday-inspired deck parties and much more. Then there are Marvel Day at Sea aboard the Disney Magic and Star Wars Day at Sea aboard the Disney Fantasy. On these sailings, you will have special meet and greets, deck parties and more to bring the adventure of these films and characters to life for a special day.
