Whether you love cruising but have never tried Disney, you’re a Castaway Club member who has been on quite a few Disney Cruises, or you’ve never cruised in your life but always wanted to try it, this winter may be the perfect time to try a Disney Cruise!
There are so many reasons to take a Disney Cruise Line vacation in the winter season. From getting a tropical escape from the cold to experiencing the magic at sea during the most wonderful time of the year to giving the gift of Disney for the holidays, Disney Cruise Line Guests truly get the royal treatment. And even though winter is basically here in most parts of the U.S., there’s still plenty of time to book a last-minute Disney Cruise Line vacation for this winter 2019-2020 season — or get a head start on booking a winter 2021 trip!
Sail from one of two Florida ports for that iconic Disney Cruise Line experience at Castaway Cay
Cruising on a Disney ship is magical no matter your destination. But when you sail from Florida, you can get an experience like no other: the opportunity to relax and adventure on Disney’s private island in the Bahamas. Castaway Cay is a truly magical little island in the middle of paradise: white sand beaches, crystal blue water, and a private beach just for adults, a water park in the middle of the ocean, bike and snorkel rentals, and so much more. Seasoned Disney Cruisers regard Castaway Cay as their favorite port ever, and we definitely see why.
Plus, you can choose to sail from Miami or Port Canaveral, and while your ports of call may be different throughout your trip, you can still visit Castaway Cay. How awesome is that?
Experience epic adventures you can only get on a Disney Cruise
There are some epic experiences and adventures that you can only get aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship, and we’re happy to report that these definitely make the Disney Cruise price worth it. You can book a cruise with an itinerary that includes a Marvel Day at Sea or a Star Wars Day at Sea. You can sail on the Disney Magic and have the opportunity to dine at the unforgettable Rapunzel’s Royal Table. You can check out the AquaDuck waterslide that stretches the length of the ship, enjoy fireworks at sea, and experience Pirate Night. You can even book a reservation at Palo on any of the four ships or the upscale, French-inspired Remy restaurant on the Disney Dream or Disney Fantasy.
Disney also offers Very Merrytime cruises in December, so you can celebrate Christmas and the holidays at sea and see all of your favorite characters — like Mickey and Minnie Mouse, the rest of the Fab Five, Disney Princesses, and more — in their holiday best.
Try a Land and Sea vacation and experience Walt Disney World in the winter
We love Walt Disney World no matter the time of year, but in early 2020 you can expect mild weather, typically lower crowds, and the parks with their most magical atmosphere. Yes, the holidays will be over by January and February 2020, but if you’re anything like us then you love experiencing the Disney Parks without all of their seasonal décor, just as they are. There’s something so special about that!
And when you take a Disney Cruise Line vacation from Florida, you can book a “land and sea” trip and add on some days before or after (or both!) your Disney Cruise so you can visit the Most Magical Place on Earth. What better reason to sail out of Florida on a Bahamas or Caribbean cruise?
