Not only does Disney have destinations around the world, they also have a fleet of ships that travel the seas! The new Disney Wish just joined Disney Wonder, Disney Magic, Disney Fantasy, and Disney Dream traveling around the world. Disney Treasure will be sailing soon as well!

Each ship has entertainment, dining, kids clubs, adult activities, and recreational activities. There will even be a Haunted Mansion lounge on the Disney Treasure!

Destinations include Alaska, the Caribbean, Europe, and Disney even has two private islands called Castaway Cay and Lookout Cay. To read all the latest planning and reviews, see our page dedicated to Disney Cruise Line HERE.

Changes Coming Up

It’s not always easy hearing there is a change coming up for your Disney vacation. Sometimes the change is good, and sometimes it is bad. Jury is still out on this one.

Guests booked on Disney Magic and Disney Wish sailings departing from Florida-based ports beginning September 2, 2024 will receive SeaMails informing of an updated All Aboard time. The All Aboard time for these sailings has changed from 4:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., and all Guests must be onboard by 3:00 p.m.

Essentially, the ship needs to have everyone onboard an hour earlier than expected.

Why is this a big deal?

This is a big deal for a few reasons. First, it (hopefully) means the ship will be able to leave sooner! We are unsure if this change is for that purpose, or if they simply don’t want any stragglers.

It is highly recommended that you travel to your departure port the day before your cruise leaves just in case you run into any cancellations or delays. If you don’t and something happens you will be refused boarding after 3:00 pm.
