Disney Cruise Line reveals its 2020 lineup, so start planning a family getaway


Disney Cruise Line has us anxiously anticipating autumn. 

The fall 2020 itinerary has been revealed, and eager explorers can start booking their forthcoming family vacations! Needless to say, we're ready to grab our mouse ears and pack our bags. 

There are family cruises departing from NYC, California, Texas and Florida, and they focus on a few things we love about the end of the year: Halloween and Christmas! Who wouldn't want to spend these holidays with Mickey and co?! Halloween on the High Seas sets sail in September and October, and vacationers are in for a ghoulishly good time thanks to costume parties, trick or treating and a magical pumpkin tree. Very Merrytime Cruises follow in November and December with a winter wonderland ball, a Frozen-themed snowfall and festive tree lightings, among other activities.  

New Yorkers: If your little mouseketeers are jumping for joy at this news, here's what you need to know!

In October 2020, Halloween on the High Seas will depart from NYC and venture to Bermuda via The Disney Magic. Spending the spookiest time of year in a tropical paradise? We're totally onboard! 

Another autumn expedition worth noting is one five-night cruise to Canada's seaports, including Saint John and New Brunswick. Travelers on this trip will also venture to Halifax, the provincial capital of Nova Scotia.

Those who have their heart set on a holly jolly Very Merrytime Cruise, it might be time to hop onboard a plane for a quick flight. Vacations to the Bahamas and Caribbean set sail from Port Canaveral, Florida, and Very Merrytime Cruises will be on most sailings. 

To best prepare for your adventure, we suggest a marathon of the best Disney Halloween movies and Disney Christmas movies. Happy traveling! 

Visit the Disney Cruise Line website for availability, pricing and more information. Remember bookings open to the public on Thursday, June 13!
