5 Reasons You Need To Book A Disney Cruise

5 Reasons You Need To Book A Disney Cruise


Last weekend I got to do something pretty incredible, I got to preview the Disney Magic in a very special preview event! You all know how I feel about Disney. From my engagement in front of the castle, to races, to conferences–Orlando is pretty much my most frequently travelled place, ever.


It was a super cold and rainy day but that didn’t matter much because my heart was warm with excitement for the day. I’ve been on a few cruises in the past but never a Disney cruise! Here are some of the awesome highlights of the day.

Have you ever thought about booking a Disney Cruise? Here are five magical reasons why you should give it a try! From the amazing spas, to the pools, your family will have the vacation of a lifetime! #travel #disneytips #disney

  1. The Spa: I’ve never seen a spa like this in real life much less on a BOAT! The spa was gorgeous, you can get pretty much anything done from facials to teeth whitening (!). The spa area is gorgeous and super zen. You can get a mani/pedi or simply even relax in the sauna. They even have top of the line products to choose from. Couples massage? Why not?! The rooms are plenty and clean. Every mom deserves at least one treatment while on the boat, self care is awesome even on vacation!disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4896 disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4898
  2. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: the Mickey Mouse clubhouse is a special play area for kids 4-12. They have plenty of fun things to keep them busy (while you get that spa treatment) like tablets, and this super fun iron man virtual game. I got to try it out and it’s the coolest!! It’s a really fun adult free place for kids to hang.disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4815SAMSUNG CSCSAMSUNG CSCdisney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4823SAMSUNG CSCdisney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4836 disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4837 disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4846
  3. Animator’s Palate: We were able to have lunch in the Animator’s Palate restaurant. Little did I know that it was a completely interactive experience! There are fun drawings everywhere (which reminded me of my second favorite resort at Walt Disney World, Art of Animation). When you arrive you are asked to draw a character then your waiter collects them. Halfway through your meal your artwork comes to life for everyone to see! It was the coolest! Oh and the food was divine as well. 🙂SAMSUNG CSCSAMSUNG CSCdisney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4954 disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4958 disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4964
  4. Tangled the Musical: We got to preview the awesome musical version of one of my favorite Disney movies Tangled. The show was a little over an hour and it was held in the beautiful Walt Disney Theater. The acting, singing and dancing was incredible. The set was really gorgeous as well, it could easily be on Broadway with Aladdin and The Lion King. So good!disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4929 disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4932
  5. Mixology classes: Another fun adult offering was the mixology classes held at “Keys” which resembles a stunning old school Chicago bar. You will get taught what you need to make the perfect cocktail, how to combine flavors and how to make the perfect mojito. Did I mention you get a drink ALL the drinks?! I made myself a no-jito made of agave, blueberry, mint, club soda and lime and it was pretty delish! We even got to mash the ingredients like a real bartender :).disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4970 disney-cruise-line-disney-magic-preview-4984



Honorable mentions:

Pools: The pools are gorgeous. There is even an adult only pool if you want!

Family Announcements: the Disney cruise staff makes an individual announcement for every family that arrives making them feel welcome right away.


Health safety is a priority: before we sat down for lunch each person in line was handed a wipe to clean their hands. Also in the Mickey Mouse club there was a really cool hand washing machine. I saw several anti bacterial types of machines all around the deck.


Special thanks to Disney Cruise Line for giving this Disney Junkie a very special day. I can’t wait to start planning our cruise for next year! For more visuals of the fun day out, check out the video below!

I only need one reason! My kids! Although I want to go to the spa and Avengers Academy. And the food! And I do think they're better about germs. I've heard they don't break out with the stomach bug like so many other cruises.

I want to go next year so I am trying to save now. I think we will do this as our summer trip and call it a summer.

I was on the Disney Magic exactly one year ago. We went to Grand Cayman and Castaway Cay. It was AMAZING. Even for three childless women, it was a blast. I think Disney is my favorite Cruise Line EVER. I've also been on the Wonder and Dream. Can't wait to try the Fantasy!

We have actually toyed with this idea for a while and you're just making a huge case for why we should do it soon!! Oh that spa!!! And Disney is just the ultimate in entertaining kids AND parents so I have no doubt it would be an incredible experience. Also - Tangled is one of my favs too!! :-) Love that you were able to get a sneak peek at this!!
