Sail Away Celebration

Kick off the cruise at a festive party with friends, family and favorite Disney characters!

The Goofy pool on deck 9 is covered over to provide the dance floor for the party.

The fun starts before sailing out of dock with a DJ party and a whole host of your favorite Disney characters on stage. Then Mickey arrives to start the countdown to sailaway...5...4...3...2...1...streamers fly up into the air as the ship sets sail and the party gets into full swing!

Characters usually present are-

  • Captain Mickey Mouse
  • Minnie Mouse
  • Donald Duck
  • Daisy Duck
  • Goofy
  • Pluto
  • Captain Hook

Disney Dream
Disney Magic
Disney Wonder



Be in the center of the action on deck 9, or go up to deck 10 for a great view of all the partying.

Arrive early if you want to get a seat. Start time will be listed on the itinerary you'll get at check-in, but is usually at 4:15pm.

The party lasts around 45 minutes.

Look out for the Cast Members at the Disney Cruise Line Terminal who'll wave you off, wearing oversized Mickey gloves, as you sail away.

Listen to the ship's horn as you set sail, it plays to the tune of "When You Wish Upon a Star."

Watch out for your image being projected onto the big screen, from one of the roving cameras.

Adults can get a refreshing cocktail in a souvenir glass from one of the servers walking around decks 9 & 10.

If you want a snack during the party, Pinocchio's Pizzeria is usually open.
