The Best Tropical Disney Getaways
Problem: you love the beach. And you love anything, everything, all things Disney. You only get one effortless week of paid-time-off a year and you simply can’t choose between the magic of the happiest place on Earth (or it’s fellow lands around the world) and lounging in the sunshine, soaking up that vitamin D and forgetting about your work meetings.
Solution: combine your affinity for the tropics and your Disney fandom by escaping the winter with a warm weather getaway. Thanks to the imaginations behind the scenes at Disney, there are plenty of options that allow you to have the best of both of your true passions by booking a stay at a Caribbean beach-styled resort at Walt Disney World or taking a Disney cruise to the Caribbean itself.
Here, a few ideas to toast your toes when you’re stuck inside from the wintry weather. When you’re ready to get out of the cold ASAP, contact us and a specialized Disney agent can have you sailing away to animated paradise tomorrow:
Stay at the Disney Caribbean Beach Resort year-round.
No matter how frigid the weather is in your hometown, you can close your eyes and dream of palm trees, since it’s always nice in the Sunshine State. If your budget doesn’t allow for flights or a cruise to Mexico, Belize and beyond, don’t worry – you can still enjoy the style of the area by booking your off-season stay at the Disney Caribbean Beach Resort at Walt Disney World. It’s build around the 45-acre Barefoot Bay, you’ll find white, sandy beaches, colonial architecture, hammocks, pools and fruity cocktails. For those kiddos who are less inclined to read a book for hours, they’ll wear out their energy levels with two waterslides and pool cannons. And to get extra cool mom and dad points, book one of their pirate-themed rooms that will have your little mateys giggly as they feel like they’re living in a real-life ship!
3-Night Bahamian Cruise from Port Canaveral
Throughout January, February and March, pack up your precious cargo (ahem, your kids) and board a three-day voyage aboard the Disney Wonder, Disney Fantasy or Disney Dream to explore the Bahamas. You and your fam will leave from Port Canaveral, Florida and stop at Disney Castaway Cay and Nassau, Bahamas before returning. While you’re rocking in the sea, you’ll enjoy multiple pools, sing-a-long waterslides, live shows, super-fun dining experiences, and adults-only whirlpool spa excursions once the kids go to bed. This cruise includes a day-long trek through Disney’s own private island retreat, offering even more surprises for all those aboard!
4-Night Bahamian Cruise From Miami
Craving a lot of Florida with a side of Mickey Mouse and your daughter’s favorite princesses? Consider a four-day adventure on Disney Magic, leaving from none-other than Miami itself. You can start your vacation renting a home on Miami Beach to lounge on the sand before your departure date, giving you even more extra R&R. Once you’re on the ship, you can nom on barbecue, splash in the pools, attend Broadway-style shows, get dressed up for themed dinners and catch a movie screening. You’ll stop by Key West and Nassau, Bahamas as you head toward Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. Here, you can play games on the sand and try your hand at watersports. Or ya know, let the kiddos try it while you catch up your celeb gossip or latest football stats.
4-Night Eastern Caribbean Cruise from San Juan to Port Canaveral
Want to show your children the wonders of collecting passport stamps and experiencing different cultures… but still make your vacation age-appropriate? A great starter trip for those little ones who are still earning their ship legs is this 4-night journey starting in San Juan and ending in Port Canaveral, Florida. Along the way, you’ll stop by St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands and explore Disney’s own private island. Here, you can buy local goods and sample the food, explaining the history of this spec of the Earth before it’s time to sail back home.
7-Night Eastern Caribbean Cruise From Port Canaveral with Star Wars Day At Sea
You and your partner love one another and your lucky kids the most – but in your heart, Star Wars will always have a place. You can make your own dreams come true – and raise a new generation of jedis – when you embark on a week-long, mega-fun Star Wars-themed cruise. You’ll hop on the (smartly-named) Disney Fantasy in Port Canaveral and explore Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Falmouth and Castaway Cay with two days at sea that are totally, completely Star Wars-themed. From pool parties and photo opps with characters to themed experiences and plenty of movie screenings, the hardest part will be packing your bags to head back to your office.
