With Disney Cruise Line swinging back into action as the Disney Dream, Disney Wonder, Disney Magic, and Disney Fantasy start to come back to life, with the Disney Wish looming behind, ready to set sail, Cast Members are being brought back to work! One of the best parts about taking a Disney Cruise Line is that you can experience the magic of Disney on a ship!

Aside from staying at a Disney Resort, Disney Cruises are the only other place you will be able to meet all your favorite characters, from Mickey Mouse to Minnie Mouse, to characters from Marvel, Star Wars, all the Disney princesses, and so many more. On top of seeing some of your favorite friends, another major plus is being able to see the stunning Broadway-level shows that Guests put on.
