This year the Very Merrytime Cruises will begin on November 9th with a 7-Night Western on the Disney Fantasy, and a 7-Night Bahamian on the Disney Wonder. We were fortunate enough to sail aboard the Disney Fantasy during the holiday season last year, and all I can say is wow. On Thanksgiving Day, guests will enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving Day feast, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and friends dressed in traditional Thanksgiving attire and a special turkey towel animal in their stateroom upon turndown. Christmas morning at the atrium lobby tree, Santa Claus and his elves will have surprises for all the kids.
During the Very Merrytime Cruises guests will have the opportunity to experience King Triton’s Tree Lighting Ceremony in the atrium lobby on the first night of the cruise, where a young guest helps Disney characters light the glittering, three-deck-tall tree.
Additional onboard activities include holiday crafts such as decorating stockings and gingerbread men cookies, making holiday cards and creating holiday animation cells. Aboard the Fantasy, Magic, and Wonder a Deck the Deck Holiday Party guests will be invited to a a tropical celebration with Disney friends leading games such as hula hooping and limbo under oversized candy canes, along with dances for the whole family like the Yuletide Slide and a conga line around the pool.
A special holiday edition of Disney Cruise Line’s Til We Meet Again will be performed on the final night of each cruise with beloved Disney characters and the ship’s crew in an engaging musical finale led by Mickey Mouse.


When the ships stop at Castaway Cay during the holidays, the celebration continues with “snow flurries,” a decked-out Christmas tree, Disney character meet-and-greets and holiday island music. To celebrate the new year, voyages will include a special New Year’s Eve party to ring in 2014, complete with music, sparkling wine in commemorative flutes and a midnight countdown with balloon drops. Check out this video from Disney Cruise Line to see what makes these Very Merrytime Cruises so very merry!

Also during the special Thanksgiving voyages, big NFL football games will be broadcast live on Funnel Vision.
Later in the day, guests will enjoy caroling from the crew choir plus a special musical performance from the children. Plus, a story just for Disney Cruise Line guests about the magical feeling of the holidays on a ship.
We sailed on the Magic one year, the first cruise after New Years and the decorations were gone.


My family and I are booked for the Disney Dream Cruise for Christmas this year and I can’t wait.
It’s the delightful trip that lets you basically chill out, take it easy rather than keep worrying regarding reservations or where you can go next. Additional meet and greets will feature the Disney characters in their festive holiday outfits, including Belle in her Christmas gown!
Plus, the holiday music did not include some of the more unique Disney catalog songs that range from songs featuring Mickey and the gang to the Walt Disney World Cast Choir from the Candlelight Processional.
