This month, the entire Disney Cruise Line fleet transformed into a glistening winter wonderland for our Very Merrytime Cruises. There’s no better way to celebrate the season than with a special atrium celebration, fun-filled tropical parties on deck, carolers throughout the ship and Disney friends dressed in their holiday best.

Check out some of the festive fun for you and your family on a Disney Cruise this holiday:

1. Deck the Deck with Mickey and Friends
Looking for a tropical holiday celebration? You and your little ones can join Mickey, Minnie and their pals for limbo, hula hooping and dancing around the pool. My personal favorite has to be the “Yuletide Slide!”

2. Celebrate the Season in a Winter Wonderland
When Santa and Mrs. Claus come to the ships, the atrium lobby is filled with classic holiday tunes, your favorite Disney characters and a flurry of “Frozen” fun with Anna and Elsa.

3. Savor Festive Feasts
Prepare to indulge a plethora of tasty holiday treats and drinks along with a bountiful feast on Thanksgiving Day and a special dinner on Christmas Day. There are also speciality teas and coffees available throughout the entire season including my favorites, Egg Nog Mocha and Caramel Pecan Chai!

4. Carol Through the Decks
Listen up for the spirit of the holidays ringing throughout the ship as Dickens-inspired carolers sing holiday classics and invite children to join them in a special farewell show.

5. Build Your Own Gingerbread House
From decorating stockings to making holiday cards, there are a ton of activities and crafts for your family. If that’s not enough gingerbread for you, each of our ships have a life-sized, edible gingerbread house right outside of the atriums.

6. Soak Up the Season
When you visit Castaway Cay, the celebration continues with holiday island music,a special Christmas tree, Disney characters in their tropical holiday attire and even “snow” flurries!
