5 Magical Happenings on a Disney Very Merrytime Cruise
Have you ever heard about Disney Cruise Line’s Very Merrytime Cruises but just not sure what all the extra magic is? Well, I am here for you! And, I’ll start by saying if you are one who would like to trade this cold weather for some warm, fun-in-the-sun, this cruise is for you!
Here are five magical happenings Guests on a Disney Very Merrytime Cruise can enjoy:
1. Mickey’s Tree Lighting Magic
As soon as you step onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship for a Disney Very Merrytime Cruise, you will notice holiday decorations everywhere you look and then your eyes immediately go to the larger-than-life Christmas tree.
(When, I say larger than life, I am talking three decks high!) However, when you board, the lights on the tree aren’t turned on yet. But, that is because the tree lights up when you are out to sea with a special ceremony hosted by some of your favorite Disney characters.
With holiday music, stories from different cultures as told by crew members and special opportunities for kids to get involved, this tree-lighting ceremony is much more than just an opportunity to make these festive lights come to life!
2. Santa’s Winter Wonderland Ball
You can’t celebrate the holidays without a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus! And on a Disney Very Merrytime Cruise, you will get to see the Big Man and his wife as well during Santa’s Winter Wonderland Ball.
This magical holiday soiree features Broadway-style entertainment, classic holiday tunes, your favorite characters and even a little magical “snow” even overtakes the atrium and is sure to leave each and every guest in the holiday spirit.
3. Your Favorite Disney Pals Dressed Up for the Holidays
All Disney Cruises feature your favorite Disney pals. But, only on Disney Very Merrytime Cruises will you see your favorites all dressed up in their holiday finest!
Whether it’s Mickey in his winter sweater, Pluto with antlers or Goofy in a full-fledged Santa suit, these pictures are sure to provide both precious memories and a spot on your family’s Christmas card!
As mentioned, the characters are on hand during Mickey’s Tree-Lighting Magic Ceremony and Santa’s Winter Wonderland Ball but you can also check your Navigator App for special meet-and-greet times and locations during your cruise.
4. Life-Size Gingerbread Displays
Each Disney Cruise Line ship during the holiday season features a larger-than-life gingerbread display. (They even hold a competition between all four ships to decide which ship’s is the best! CLICK HERE to find out this year’s winner.)
Culinary teams on each ship work day and night to bring these magical creations to life and the outcome is a draw-dropping display and a cruise ship atrium that smells of delicious gingerbread.
In addition, Disney Very Merrytime Cruises offer gingerbread cookie decorating classes. And, unlike the gingerbread displays, you can actually eat these!
5. Disney’s Castaway Cay
As mentioned, if you are looking to trade in snow and cold weather for some fun in the sun, be sure to pack you bathing suit and flip flops for Disney’s Castaway Cay, Disney Cruise Line’s private island, during your Disney Very Merrytime Cruise.
Even though you may be in the middle of the Bahams, this slice of paradise is decked for the holidays as well – with a tropical flair, of course! A massive Christmas tree, holiday island music and even “snow” flurries await your family, guaranteeing that the only “blue” you’ll be feeling this holiday season is the color of the crystal-clear waters!
