The Disney Cruise Line fleet is comprised of five world-class ships: the Disney Magic, the Disney Wonder, the Disney Dream, the Disney Fantasy, and the newest ship in the fleet: the Disney Wish.
Are you ready to set sail with Captain Mickey, Captain Minnie, and the WHOLE gang?
Because with truly unique features like Rotational Dining in beautifully themed restaurants to its own private island for select itineraries — Castaway Cay! (and — in 2024 — the new Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point) — and SO much more, a Disney Cruise Line sailing is truly a vacation like no other!
The Disney Magic is the original Disney Cruise Line ship. She first set sail in 1998. Fifteen years later, she launched again after a lengthy stay in dry-dock where she spent her time being “re-imagined.”
Carrying guests in 875 Staterooms (with a capacity of 2,713 passengers), the Disney Magic sails to the Bahamas and the Caribbean, Bermuda, Canada and New England. The Disney Magic also offers unique Panama Canal cruises.
In early 2024, the Disney Magic will have two limited-time engagements in Galveston, Texas. The ship will offer trips ranging in length from four to six nights through the end of January. In February, the Magic will be leaving out of New Orleans with four-, five-, and seven-night cruises to the Caribbean. Then, between March and April, the ship will sail out of Galveston again for cruises ranging from four to seven nights in the western Caribbean.
The Disney Wonder is the sister ship to the Disney Magic, first setting sail in 1999.
Also carrying guests in 875 Staterooms (with a capacity of 2,713 passengers).
The longest season of San Diego sailings yet has begun for the Disney Wonder! 3-, 4-, 5-, and 7-day cruises to Baja, Mexico, and the Mexican Riviera started in the fall of 2022 and will extend into early 2023. Ports include Mazatlan, Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, and Ensenada, as well as Catalina Island.
Additionally, the Disney Wonder will carry Disney Cruise Line passengers on new Disney Magic at Sea sailings to Australia and New Zealand for the first time! These sailings — which are now open for booking — will be available for a limited time in 2023 and 2024, starting in October 2023.
You can book your cruise for two to six-night cruises from Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney, all aboard the Disney Wonder. Cruise prices vary depending on the location, type of stateroom, and the number of nights. You can view sail dates by clicking here.
Disney also shared that repositioning cruises for the Disney Wonder will present the first South Pacific voyages for Disney Cruise Line, and will visit destinations such as Fiji and Samoa.
The Disney Wonder will return from its first season in Australia and New Zealand to arrive in San Diego in March 2024. From there, it will have three- to seven-night voyages to Mexico, including the Baja peninsula. Some of the locations you could visit include Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Ensenada, along with Catalina Island in California.

Disney Cruise Line Seasonal and Special-themed Sailings
Along with incredibly varied itineraries, Disney Cruise Line also offers seasonal sailings, such as Halloween on the High Seas, and even THEMED sailings such as Marvel Day at Sea and Pixar Day at Sea!
And, as the summer of 2023 will mark the 25th anniversary of the cruise line, Disney will be celebrating the milestone with a Silver Anniversary at Sea celebration on all five cruise ships!
While these unique sailings feature several things in common such as exclusive Deck Parties, rare characters and/or Disney pals in special costumes, limited-time food and beverage offerings, fun-filled activities and MUCH MORE, each season or theme has its own different experiences. Therefore, we’ve dedicated this page to these special sailings so you can learn more about each one.
DisneyBand+ — Now on Select Disney Cruise Line Ships!
If you’ve been to Disney World, you’re probably already familiar with MagicBand+ technology. Not only can you use MagicBand+ to unlock your hotel room, pay for purchases, and scan into parks, but you can also use it to interact with elements like fireworks shows inside the parks. Well, a very similar technology is currently rolling out on Disney Cruise Line ships.
DisneyBand+ is basically a MagicBand+ you can use on Disney cruises. It allows cruisers to unlock their stateroom doors as well as pay for purchases.
Kids can use their DisneyBand+ to access kids’ clubs on the ship, like the Oceaneer Club and Scuttle’s Cove at Castaway Cay. (They can use the new band instead of the Oceaneer Club band.) DisneyBand+ can also be used with PhotoPass photographers on the ships to link those photos to their stateroom, making it easy to view and purchase photos. DisneyBand+ also interacts with elements on the ship, much like MagicBand+ interacts with elements in Disney parks.
DisneyBand+ is currently in use on the Disney Wish and the Disney Fantasy and will continue to rollout to the other ships in the fleet. Disney Cruise Line shares that “DisneyBand+ designs may be limited on board—so be sure to purchase in advance to shop the full variety of available bands.” Passengers “will be able to order a DisneyBand+ by visiting My Reservations between 11 and 45 days of their sail date” if paid in full. Those who purchase a DisneyBand+ in advance will also get a $10 discount.
PLEASE NOTE: Stateroom Cards will still be available to cruisers who want them and they will still work aboard ships. Additionally, if you already have a MagicBand+ that you love, you can bring that along instead of buying a new DisneyBand+, and it will work, too.
