Disney Cruise Line Debuts Diverse Lineup of Itineraries and Home Ports for Fall 2019

CELEBRATION, Fla. (May 17, 2018) – In fall 2019, Disney Cruise Line will return to favorite destinations and home ports on a variety of itineraries, including adventures to Bermuda, Bahamas, Baja, Canada and the Caribbean. With cruises ranging from two-night getaways to weeklong vacations and beyond, this season of sailings offers countless opportunities for families to delight in Disney magic, explore exotic locales and make lifelong memories together.

Sailings to Bermuda, Bahamas and Canada from New York

The Disney Magic returns to New York in September for a selection of departures to a diverse collection of destinations, including luxurious Bermuda, sun-kissed Bahamas and historic New Brunswick, Canada.

Three special five-night cruises feature two days in Bermuda, allowing extra time for guests to indulge in the island nation’s famous pink-sand beaches, world-class shopping, abundant water activities and distinctive blend of British and Caribbean culture.

During two seven-night sailings from New York to the Bahamas, cruisers are treated to a double-dose of pixie dust. A stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, is paired with a day at Port Canaveral, Florida, where every guest receives a one-day Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket and round-trip transportation to the theme parks in nearby Orlando.

A single five-night cruise to Canada transports guests from New York to charming Saint John, New Brunswick with a stop in Bar Harbor, Maine. Saint John is the home of majestic natural phenomena like the renowned Reversing Falls and the world’s highest tides, located where the Saint John River meets the Bay of Fundy.

Baja and Mexican Riviera Voyages from California        

In September, the Disney Wonder sets sail for a limited engagement in San Diego, where guests embark on adventures to Baja and the Mexican Riviera. Baja itineraries highlight the region’s famous beaches and exciting water activities with calls on Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico. Two exclusive seven-night Mexican Riviera sailings feature the snorkeling and scuba diving hot spots Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán and Cabo San Lucas.

Disney Cruise Line guests can enrich their experience by combining select San Diego-based cruises with a pre-cruise package from Adventures by Disney, a leader in family guided group vacations. During this three-night itinerary, guests embark on a rare behind-the-magic visit to The Walt Disney Studios and Disney Archives, a private tour of Walt Disney Imagineering and a visit to the place where it all began — the Disneyland Resort.

Vacations to Bahamas and Caribbean from Texas         

Beginning late November, the Disney Wonder will make Galveston its home port for a special series of sailings to the Caribbean and Bahamas, with options at four, six and seven nights. Caribbean cruises include stops in Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico; and Falmouth, Jamaica. Bahamian itineraries feature stops in Castaway Cay and Key West, Florida. Two of the Bahamian sailings also take guests to Nassau, Bahamas, while another includes an exclusive second day on Disney’s private island.

Tropical Escapes from Florida

In fall 2019, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy continue sailing guest-favorite itineraries to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Port Canaveral, while the Disney Magic returns to Miami in November with a variety of cruise lengths and itineraries.

The Disney Magic’s diverse lineup includes three-, four- and five-night Bahamian sailings and five- and six-night Western Caribbean cruises, and most itineraries feature a day ashore at Castaway Cay. Other ports of call on Bahamian voyages include Nassau and Key West, while stops in Grand Cayman and Cozumel headline the Western Caribbean itineraries.

The Disney Dream sails three- and four-night cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay. These itineraries make for the perfect family getaway, combining the magic of Disney with the ease and enjoyment of a tropical cruise vacation.

The Disney Fantasy sails seven-night Caribbean voyages, and every cruise includes a stop at Castaway Cay. Eastern Caribbean itineraries visit the Virgin Islands of Tortola and St. Thomas, and Western Caribbean cruises call on Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Falmouth. These weeklong experiences allow for even more family fun as guests make memories aboard their Disney cruise ship and at port in renowned tropical destinations.

The Disney Fantasy will also sail a selection of special itineraries. In October, an eight-night voyage transports guests south to St. Kitts, Antigua and San Juan, Puerto Rico, while a six-night Western Caribbean itinerary includes calls on Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico. Both itineraries are capped off with a day at Castaway Cay. In December, two unique seven-night itineraries include one cruise to San Juan, Tortola and Castaway Cay, and another voyage featuring two days on Disney’s private island after visits to Cozumel and Grand Cayman.

Location Announced for NEW Space-Themed Restaurant Coming to Epcot!

Last summer at D23 we found out that Epcot would be receiving a new space themed restaurant! At the time however Disney did not release any details as to where the restaurant would be located which left many fans very curious and sparked many theories and predictions. Well now the location has been revealed for this new Space-themed restaurant coming to Epcot!

We found out at D23 that this new restaurant would be an immersive dining experience among the stars which would offer guests views “from high above Earth.” We also learned that it will be operated by the Patina Restaurant Group. This restaurant group is known for being the creators of other favorite Disney restaurants such as Via Napoli and Tutto Italia! At the time of the restaurant’s announcement, all Disney revealed regarding location was that the restaurant would be adjacent to the Mission: SPACE attraction. This information was very broad and left us Disney fans very curious as to where, exactly that meant!

Well, now we know! A new area is being developed just for the new restaurant, and it will be located between Mission: SPACE and another favorite Future World attraction, Test Track! Now that we have this clarity on the restaurants location we can’t wait to hear more soon about what we can expect at this new dining location! From the concept art and what Disney has shared we know that the restaurant will be a very unique and out of this world experience! The space theme will give a futuristic vibe and fit into that part of Epcot very well!

Dinner at Satu’li Canteen in Pandora the World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park!

On my most recent trip to Disney World my family and I arrived to Animal Kingdom in the evening and wanted to have some dinner and walk through Pandora the World of Avatar at night! We had a long travel day and were very hungry. We walked straight to Pandora and decided to try Satu’li Canteen for dinner!

This is a quick service location that serves unique cuisine and has many interesting offerings. Everyone is sure to find something that they will enjoy! This dining location has a very nice atmosphere and both a large indoor and outdoor seating. I was impressed with the fact that they use real silverware and flatware which gives this a much more upscale feel. This location offers a fountain drink station where you can get refills on your beverages.

I had the cheeseburger pods which I had heard good reviews on and I was not disappointed. It reminded me of the steamed buns served in world showcase china pavilion! The bun was filled with a ground beef which reminded me of a taco meat filling. It was very flavorful. It was served with a very tasty tangy coleslaw and delicious homemade chips

Overall there where many other items on the menu that I will definitely be coming back to try on my next visit! If you are in Animal Kingdom and looking for a unique and reasonable quick-service dining experience then you will definitely want to try Satu’li Canteen for a meal!

Maria and Enzo’s at Disney Springs! Disney Restaurant Review!

Back in January Maria and Enzo’s opened its doors at Disney Springs. This Italian eatery is themed after an abandoned airline terminal that has been transformed into a luxurious restaurant. Ever since this dining location opened I was intrigued by the beautiful pictures of this waterfront restaurant, the theming and by the menu selections. Recently I had the opportunity to dine here myself and experience everything Maria and Enzo’s had to offer!

We went to the restaurant for lunch. During this period Maria and Enzo’s offers a lunch special. For $21 you can choose between a soup or a caesar salad and then have your choice of an entrée of either spaghetti and meatballs or chicken parmigiana. The lunch special is also served with breadsticks, mostarda fruit and pickled vegetables. After we order the waiter brought us a warm basket of bread accompanied with olive oil.

We found everything to be very authentic and truly delicious! The service was incredible. The staff was all so friendly and very attentive. The wait staff were all very knowledgeable about the menu and made wonderful suggestions based on everyone’s likes!

I would highly recommend dining at Maria and Enzo’s on your next visit to Disney Springs!
