Three Disney Cruise Line Ships Sailing from Port Canaveral in Early 2014

Starting in January, three of Disney Cruise Line’s ships will be sailing from Port Canaveral, Fla., giving even more guests the chance to experience two of the magical lands that set Disney apart – Walt Disney World Resort and Castaway Cay.

The Magic of Castaway Cay

The Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy already call Port Canaveral home, offering 3- and 4-night cruises to the Bahamas (Disney Dream) and 7-night cruises to the Caribbean (Disney Fantasy). Beginning January 2, 2014, the Disney Magic will also sail 3- and 4-night cruises from there.

Disney Cruise Line Family Adventure

Port Canaveral is just about a one-hour drive from Walt Disney World Resort, which gives guests the great option of planning the perfect Disney vacation – both on land and at sea! If you’re still looking for that holiday gift you know your family will love, check out the special we’re offering on a 3-night Bahamian cruise and a 3-night stay in Walt Disney World Resort.

Mickey and Minnie LOVE Disney Cruise Line

Disney makes combining a cruise and resort stay easier for you all year-long with options including motor coach transportation between the port and resort and luggage delivery from the resort to your stateroom. Plus, we’ll even assist with booking your accommodations, theme park tickets and resort food package. Pretty convenient, right?

Another really exciting part of our sailings from Port Canaveral is that every one of them includes a stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.

Disney Cruise Line Unveils Itineraries and Ports for 2015

If you haven’t yet had the chance to visit this paradise island reserved exclusively for Disney cruisers, my guess is that this photo alone requires no explanation as to why it is a guest favorite.

Pristine beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters, swaying palm trees … what more could you want? And with plenty of family fun to be had, like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and biking, a day here is unlike any other!

Disney Cruise Line Unveils Itineraries and Ports for 2015

Re-imagined Disney Magic Debuts New ‘Drawn to Magic’ Dinner Show

One of the incredible aspects about the re-imagined Disney Magic is that the transformation wasn’t just an aesthetic makeover. Walt Disney Imagineers worked hard to bring guests a fresh look all around the ship, but they didn’t stop there. WDI is always looking to entertain in new and exciting ways, and that is exactly what they accomplished with the enhancements to the Disney Magic.

Re-imagined Disney Magic Debuts New 'Drawn to Magic' Dinner Show

Take Animator’s Palate as an example. Featured on all four ships, it’s Disney Cruise Line’s signature family dining room and no doubt a guest favorite. Knowing how much guests love the look of the restaurant on the Disney Magic, Imagineers kept the same classic theme but enhanced it with all-new, animation-adorned walls, larger high-definition flat-screens and updated furnishings like custom-built Mickey Mouse chairs.

But that’s not even the best part. On every Disney Magic cruise, guests will get to enjoy a completely re-imagined “Drawn to Magic” dinner animation show, which incorporates even more scenes from favorite Disney films and a dramatic transformation from black and white to color.

Re-imagined Disney Magic Debuts New 'Drawn to Magic' Dinner Show

Throughout the meal, diners will see black and white character portraits sketched in real-time on the over sized digital canvases lining the dining room walls, making a fun game for your family as you guess which favorite heroes and villains are coming to life. As appetizers arrive, pencil tests of Disney characters are revealed, bringing to life iconic moments — from Disney favorites like “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Princess and the Frog” and more — one canvas at a time. Guests get their first taste of color during dinner when the character pencil tests around the room are treated to ink and paint.

Re-imagined Disney Magic Debuts New 'Drawn to Magic' Dinner Show

As dinner winds down and desserts are selected, the grand finale begins, immersing guests in an animated show about a hero’s journey with scenes of Disney and Pixar films on screen, accompanied by dramatic lighting shifts throughout the restaurant. Finally, with the dining room in full color, the celebration comes to life with a fun appearance by Sorcerer Mickey and a parade of the “transformed” wait staff (they also get a full dose of color!)

Little Cruisers Get Even More Fun On The Re-imagined Disney Magic

Last week, I had the privilege of being one of the first to sail on Disney Cruise Line‘s re-imagined Disney Magic.  It is an incredible ship from top to bottom, but one of the most incredible areas was the new kids environments onboard the Disney Magic.

The first area we visited was the new Oceaneer Lab.

Adorned with giant, nautical ropes belayed around columns, ancient navigation maps on the walls and compasses emblazoned throughout the décor, Oceaneer Lab takes pint-sized pirates on a journey of discovery, exploration and adventure.

Craft Area

Just down the hall for the youngest cruisers — ages three months to three years — is the new It’s a Small World Nursery. Inspired by the style of Disney Legend Mary Blair, this whimsical world has cheerful artwork and murals resembling the namesake Disney Parks attraction.

The space is filled with hands-on features, including horns to honk, wheels to spin and buttons to press, along with colorful, kid-sized tables and chairs for toddlers to enjoy crafts, books and games with caring, trained counselors.

At the back of the nursery, a serene motif and a calm, quiet atmosphere is reserved for naptime. Parents wishing to check on their children without disturbing them can glimpse into the nursery’s main play area through a one-way window.

Here Is How You Can Save Money On Your Next Disney Cruise

If you are like me, I love to find a great deal.  I clip coupons, seek out the latest weekly deal at the grocery store, buy gift cards on double bonus point month and plan well for my vacations.

Here Is How You Can Save Money On Your Next Disney Cruise

One of our family’s favorite vacations is setting sail on a Disney Cruise Ship. Whether it be a short getaway tacked on to our Walt Disney World stay, seeing the wonderful natural beauty of Alaska or discovering history in Europe we are never disappointed with a Disney Cruise vacation.  The service is exceptional, the staterooms are comfortable and the family activities and adult only venues make it perfect for the whole family.

As with any family vacation, budget is one of the main contributing factors during the planning phase.  With a family of 5 that usually means, two state rooms, or the Deluxe Family Stateroom on the ship.  We learned early on that planning in advance offers us the best price.  As so as new Itineraries become available, that is when we set the date, but the key to making the most out of our budget is planning for our next cruise while we are still on the cruise!

Here Is How You Can Save Money On Your Next Disney Cruise

How does that work?  When you sail on a Disney Cruise ship you have the opportunity to book your future cruise while still on the ship and get a great discount, ½ deposit and an onboard credit.  Another fantastic bonus is that when you book your future cruise with Kingdom Magic and your Travel Planner you get an additional shipboard credit as well.  All together this translates into a great savings!

Important things to remember:

  1.  You can ONLY take advantage of the savings while you are still on the ship.
  2. You visit the future booking desk and deposit a future cruise.  If you don’t know the date, just let them know and they will book a place holder cruise for you.  Then when you decide on the date and the Itinerary let your Kingdom Magic Travel Planner know.
  3. Make sure that you tell the Cruise Desk that you want to book your vacation with Kingdom Magic and use the same travel planner.
  4. When you return home, your travel planner will touch base will you so you can start dreaming about the next time you will set sail!

Sounds easy!  It is!  You have another perfect vacation planned for the future and you have saved money!
