We are excited about the changes coming to Disney Cruise Line sailings this summer. To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the cruise line, there will be dazzling new entertainment offerings and family activities inspired by menu items and a themed merchandise collection. There is so much to look forward to onboard all five ships from May through September of 2023.
Let’s take a look at the latest update(including new fireworks!):

With the official celebration beginning in just a few months, we’re excited to reveal more details about the brand-new magic you can experience during our “Silver Anniversary at Sea” including a new fireworks show “Light Up the Night.”
In 1998, Disney Cruise Line made history as the first cruise line ever to produce a fireworks show at sea! In the 25 years since, fireworks have remained a quintessential part of the Disney Cruise Line experience, inspiring core memories for generations of dreamers. The night sky will shine even brighter this summer as a shimmering new fireworks display premieres on select “Silver Anniversary at Sea” itineraries! Created in honor of Disney Cruise Line’s 25th anniversary, the limited-time evening extravaganza will uphold the cherished Disney tradition of fireworks and honor Disney’s continuing legacy of adventure. The dazzling spectacle will be set to the tunes of iconic and beloved Disney music, and anchoring the show will be a brand-new signature song created especially for the “Silver Anniversary at Sea.” The 25th anniversary fireworks show will be featured on most Bahamian, Caribbean and Mediterranean cruises this summer.
A captain’s reception is a well-known cruising tradition that Disney Cruise Line guests have enjoyed since the very beginning. In honor of the “Silver Anniversary at Sea,” that event is being reimagined adding an extra dose of magic to sailings this summer.
On one evening each cruise, guests will be invited to join their ship’s captain and cruise director in the atrium for an anniversary toast. The festive affair will feature appearances from Captain Mickey Mouse and Captain Minnie Mouse — dressed for the occasion in their shimmering new looks, of course! — and a delightful rendition of the “Silver Anniversary at Sea” theme song.
If you’ve sailed with Disney Cruise Line before, you can be part of the best club on the high seas – the Castaway Club, which recognizes returning Disney Cruise Line guests with exclusive rewards and perks. All Castaway Club members who sail during the “Silver Anniversary at Sea” this summer will receive a limited-edition framed art print in their stateroom to commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime celebration until supplies last. As shown above, this design was created by Disney artist Joe Kaminski, whose work is featured in The Art of Disney galleries, Disney resort hotels and Disney Cruise Line ships. (One 11×14 framed print will be delivered per stateroom.)
This summer is going to be a great time to set sail! If you are interested in hitting the high seas with Disney Cruise Line now is the time to book! Our friends at Magic Family Getaways are ready to help you with all your travel planning needs!
