The new Beauty and the Beast show premiered on the Disney Dream this past week. Disney Parks Blog is inviting the rest of us to be their guest for a sneak peek at the show live on the web at 10:40 am EST today. Be sure to head over to the Disney Parks Blog site to access the link and sing along!

The force has gotten stronger on the upcoming Star Wars Day at Sea sailings. If you are on one of the 15 special cruises, you will be able to reserve a character greeting time in advance for your chance to meet C-3PO, R2D2, Darth Vader, and Chewbacca. You will want to be sure to be online and grab your time when your booking window opens!

Maybe you’ve finished all the Halloween candy and your sweet tooth is having some withdrawal? Disney Parks Blog has a solution with this try-at-home recipe for a Red Velvet Cupcake Milkshake, courtesy of the Sweet on You shop on the Disney Fantasy.

Scott Sanders of the Disney Cruise Line Blog has shared that, one again, Disney Cruise Line is an award winner! Porthole Magazine shared the results of their 2017 Reader’s Choice Awards, and Disney Cruise Line sailed away with the top spot for Most Family-Oriented Cruise Line, Best Children’s Programs, and Best Entertainment. Hip hip, hooray!

Upcoming Entertainment

The following films are being shown aboard the Disney Cruise Line ships this month:

  • Moana

Captain’s Log: Important Tips and Information

VGT. GTY. PAT. No, these aren’t hieroglyphics, but common yet often confusing Disney Cruise Line vernacular. Luckily, we have Tammy Whiting to break down some of the more confusing terms and make it seem oh so simple!



This week kicks off the Very MerryTime Cruises for the entire fleet! The most magical time of the year is full of magic on the ships. One of our favorite activities is the gingerbread house decorating session. This activity is free, but space is limited and you will need to reserve a time. Check your Personal Navigator when you board, and head to guest services to secure your tickets. DCL will provide your family with all the sugary tools, you just need to bring your creativity to the decorating table. The best part? Taking your creation back to your stateroom to nibble all cruise long.



Are you deciding whether to book a Disney Cruise but are having a tough time deciding which ship fits all of your desires? Well, our own Laurel Stewart has put together a chart that makes it easy to compare all of the options in one place. Also available as a valuable planning and companion guide from authors Len Testa, Erin Foster, and Laurel Stewart is The Unofficial Guide to the Disney Cruise Line. The companion guide contains a complete overview of each Disney ship as well as Castaway Cay and includes valuable tips on how to save time and money during your cruise!

Special thanks to Scott Sanders of The DCL Blog for assisting on this article. That concludes this week’s preview of the Disney Cruise Line. Join us next Friday as we take a look at what happens in the world of Disney Cruise Line over the next week!
