Disney Cruise Pixar Day at Sea – Is it For You?

Sharing is caring!

Disney Cruise Line first announced a new Pixar Day at Sea theme for select sailings on the Disney Fantasy for January to March 2023.

Now DCL has confirmed that there will also be a number of Pixar Day at Sea cruises on the Disney Fantasy for 2024 too!

This is not the first time that Disney has offered Pixar-themed cruises.

The last time they did this was many years ago to help sales of the Mexican Riviera cruises.

Those sailings were a whole lot of fun, and one of our very favorite themed Disney cruises.

From the announcement, it seems that Pixar Day at Sea will follow the same kind of format as Star Wars Day at Sea and Marvel Day at Sea.

We can expect Pixar-themed dining, character encounters, dance parties, and a theatrical musical experience. The day of celebration will end with a fun-filled Pixar Deck Party.

The Disney website announces “sing, dance, play, and swim with your favorite toys, supers, monsters, and more”.

For those of you wondering what has happened to the Star Ways Day at Sea sailings, these seem to be on hold for right now, with nothing announced for 2023 or 2024.

Disney Cruise Pixar Day at Sea Entertainment

Some basic details have been released about the new entertainment for Pixar Day at Sea.

  • A new nighttime show spectacular will call upon Disney Cruise Line guests to help the Incredibles save the day.
  • A first-of-its-kind theatrical experience will bring to life the beloved story of Miguel and his family from “Coco” through live music and puppetry.
  • Families will be able to join their favorite Pixar characters from the films for a dance party bash.

Disney Pixar Day at Sea Character Greetings

There will be plenty of chances to interact with your favorite Pixar characters including:

  • Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Bo Peep from Toy Story
  • Mike, Sulley, and Boo from Monster’s Inc
  • Joy and Sadness from Inside Out
  • Dug and Russell from the movie Up
  • Mr. Incredible, Elastagirl, and Frozone from The Incredibles.

Pixar Day at Sea Themed Dining

This seems to indicate a welcome return to the Disney cruise character breakfast (at least for these Pixar-themed sailings).

  • A new, interactive character dining experience hosted by Sheriff Woody, Jesse, and Bullseye will kick-start the day with sing-a-longs, cowboy serenades, and all the country breakfast fixings.
  • Families will enjoy a Pixar-themed dinner with dishes inspired by the Pixar Animation Studios’ California locale.
  • Guests will immerse themselves in undersea magic while dining in Animator’s Palate with visits from some of their favorite “Finding Nemo” friends, including interactive conversations with Crush.

The one thing that isn’t clear is whether or not this marks the end for Disney’s Star Wars Days at Sea. Traditionally these have been offered during the first few months of the year on Disney Fantasy.

Perhaps they will be moved to later on in the year, or even move to another one of the ships in the Disney fleet.
