Disney is known for putting on Broadway-level performances — whether that be in their Parks, on cruise ships, or on an actual Broadway stage! Disney Cruise Line has, of course, been heavily affected over the past year as the pandemic has halted the cruising industry altogether. Now, Disney Cruise Lines are bringing back the Disney Magic, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, Disney Wonder, and the new Disney Wish for Guests to enjoy in a year.

Disney needs to ensure that their entertainment aboard will be top-notch to have those ships ready to go, so they are now casting for musical theater roles fleet-wide! On the Disney Auditions webpage, we see that casting will take place on August 9 and 10 in New York. From Tangled to Beauty and the Beast and everything in between, there are a ton of Disney shows that take place on their cruise ships.
