The magic of the holiday season makes November and December an incredible time of year to take a Disney vacation. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the holidays than a fun-filled trip to Walt Disney World Resort followed a relaxing few days at sea. For those of you planning (or dreaming about) a Disney vacation, here are my top five reasons to make a Disney cruise part of the fun.
- Give the gift that’s nautical and nice. Treat your family with an extra special holiday gift this year. Our Very Merrytime cruises will make you feel at home for the holidays with festive fun and holiday décor from stem-to-stern.
- Double your holiday spirit, cheer and fun.Port Canaveral is just a short drive to or from the Walt Disney World Resort. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to watch the brand-new “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios or attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, then embark on a relaxing, but spirited cruise the very next day? You can take my word for it, there’s nothing more spectacular.
- Festive experiences you can’t get anywhere else. Get ready to pack your Santa hat and reindeer antlers because holiday events include magical merriment all cruise long! I could go on and on about the amazing offerings onboard like the magical Christmas tree lighting, “Santa’s’ Winter Wonderland Ball,” the spirited carolers and the “Deck the Deck Holiday Party,” but the holidays might be over by then.
- A wintery island paradise. I’ve been dreaming of a white Christmas … white sand that is. On cruises departing from Port Canaveral, you’ll stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, but with a winter holiday twist. It combines everything you love about the holidays (even snow!), but you get to leave your sweater and mittens at home as you join your favorite Disney characters in a tropical paradise which includes a decked-out Christmas tree and holiday island music.
- All I want for Christmas is … relaxation. After the non-stop adventures during your Walt Disney World vacation, you’ll be ready for some non-stop relaxation. Trust me; a Disney cruise is the perfect way to conclude your Walt Disney World vacation. You will find yourself in the ultimate state of relaxation as you enjoy world-class entertainment, rejuvenating spa treatments and indulge in food prepared by top-rated chefs, especially when it comes to your favorite holiday sweets and treats.
