Port Canaveral is homeport to 3 Disney Cruise Ships throughout 2022, making it the perfect destination to experience Disney on the high seas this year. With Walt Disney World located less than an hour from the port in Orlando, there is no better place to kick off your magical vacation. Use this guide to help you decide whether to sail on the Dream, Fantasy, and Wish for your Disney Cruise 2022 and learn a few money-saving Port Canaveral travel tips.
The Disney Dream offers voyages from Port Canaveral until June 2022, making this a great option if you plan to sail in the Spring. She’s ideal for long weekend getaways, offering 3 and 4-night sailings to the Bahamas. Indulge in Broadway-caliber entertainment with a Beauty and the Beast performance as well as French-inspired eats at Remy — named after Ratatouille’s talented little chef. Young Star Wars fans can gather at the Millenium Falcon-themed play space, keeping the kids entertained for hours. The Disney Dream is the first ship of her fleet to have a water roller coaster at sea: the Aquaduck! This 4-deck-tall slide features powerful water blasters that take guests on an exciting ride with stunning views while landing in a not-so-lazy river. For adult cruisers, there’s an area called The District that showcases fun-filled venues dedicated to celebrating nightlife, including a piano bar featuring nightly entertainment.
The Disney Fantasy offers voyages from Port Canaveral the entire year with continuous 7-night sailings rotating between the Eastern and Western Caribbean. Her differences from the Dream are slight, and she also features an Aquaduck water coaster. With longer sailing itineraries, the Disney Fantasy has two more shows than the Dream. Don’t miss out on the top-notch musical productions of Aladdin and Frozen on the Fantasy, as well as the “Animation Magic” dinner show at Animator’s Palate allowing guests to design their own characters at the table. Adult-exclusive areas aboard include a grown-up playground of bars and lounges called Europa. Cruisers will feel like they’re clubbing in Europe at the La Piazza lounge with a festive Italian-inspired atmosphere. Enjoy the merry-go-round Carosello bar and go “country hopping” at O’Gills Irish Pub or the London-themed spot called The Tube. Both the Fantasy and the Dream ships have five bars including the Skyline Lounge, with scenic “skyline” views that transform into a different city every few minutes.
The Disney Wish starts sailing from Port Canaveral in June 2022, offering 3 and 4-day trips to the Bahamas when the Dream departs. If you’d like to experience a summer or fall cruise, splurging on the Wish is your best bet. She’s Disney’s newest and largest ship, known for her interactive activities and dining experiences. Marvel fans can meet Ant-Man and the Wasp at “Avengers: Quantum Encounter,” a cinematic dining experience where cruisers get to participate in Avengers missions using gadgets while enjoying the Marvel-inspired menu ranging from all-American flavors to rich African fares. Join “Arendelle: a Frozen Dining Experience”, where Queen Anna and Kristoff invite you to celebrate their royal engagement. See exciting musical performances from Elsa and Olaf as you indulge in hearty Norwegian-inspired dishes. Disney storytelling also comes to life with the immersive family game, Disney Uncharted Adventure — where cruisers can use their smartphone to find missing clues with the help of Captain Mickey and other Disney characters to solve puzzles and save the day! Cruisers of all ages can make a splash at AquaMouse, Disney’s first-ever attraction at sea, that combines a water coaster and animated short stories for a one-of-a-kind ride. When it comes to adults-only endeavors, prepare to blast off to the lively Star Wars Lounge, raise a toast at the Viking Bar, or delight in innovative international cuisine at Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement, inspired by Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast.
