One of the Disney’s Port Canaveral Christmas Decorations. Like other holidays, Disney does the Christmas season very well. Their decorations on board the ship, are wonderful, the decorations on shore are also magical.
Bookings for the new itineraries open to the public on March 25 for Platinum Castaway Club members (10+ sailings) and Gold Castaway Club (5-9) and March 26 for Silver Castaway Club members and everyone else.
More Summer 2016 Itineraries
During the summer of 2016, the Disney Magic will return to favorite destinations in northern Europe, the Greek Isles and the Mediterranean with a variety of seven-night and longer sailings.
Disney today announced Summer 2016 itineraries.
Disney is heading to Scotland, Ireland, and France:
Disney Cruise Line is sailing its first British Isles itinerary, visiting Scotland, England, Ireland and France. Throughout the summer of 2016, Disney Cruise Line also will return to Norway, Iceland and ports of call in more than 15 European countries.
Stingray encounters can be a nice excursion on a cruise. Encounters can involve feeding the stingrays, snorkeling with the stingrays or wading with them. The photo below is from Disney’s stingray encounter at Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.
Initially the Flying Dutchman was at sea, but after the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, the Flying Dutchman came to Castaway Cay. The Flying Dutchman remained at Castaway Cay for a number of years, but alas it set sail again a year or two ago and it is no longer at Castaway Cay. With new Pirates of the Caribbean movies coming, will Castaway see ships from the films in the future? Time will tell! If you have the scoop, let us know in the comment section!
A Disney Cruise for Spring Break? A cruise on another line? Spring can be a good time to take a cruise with the children. The weather is usually very pleasant, although sometimes a little cool. But often a great time to get away. And if your Spring Break includes Easter, you will probably see some Easter decorations here and there around the ships.
Video of Port Canaveral packed with six cruise ships for the first time:
As on the Disney Wonder (and Fantasy and Dream), the Magic features the cast of Disney characters around the ship. On the Magic, Mickey is featured in the atrium. Like Ariel on the Disney Wonder, Mickey faces forward, so if you get turned around, you can see which way Mickey is facing to find the front of the ship.

The Disney Wonder at Castaway Cay with a Waterspout (Tornado) in the distance. Later that day, another waterspout appeared off to the forward starboard side of the ship. None came near the shore, but several excursions that involved being at sea were cancelled. It was an exciting time, but Disney did a great job to make sure everyone was safe.
