Disney Cruise Line

Is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on the Disney Cruise Line Worth It?

If you are going on a Disney Cruise with young kids, you’ll probably want to take advantage of all of the family-friendly activities on the ship. From entertaining Broadway-style shows to traditional character interactions, these special Disney touches are the things that make the Disney Cruise Line stand out to families.

There are also other activities available on the ships - sometimes offered at an additional cost. One of these is the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, which originated at Walt Disney World and expanded to additional locations including the Disney Cruise Line.

When is the best time of year to go on a Disney Cruise?

The four (soon to be five) ships of the Disney Cruise Line generally run year-round. While some of them change homeports during the year, the ships don’t take a seasonal break (unless they are in drydock during a refurbishment).

So, what is the best time of year to go on a Disney Cruise? It really varies, depending on your own plans as well as what you want to experience onboard the ship.

Shows You Can See on a Disney Cruise

As you’d expect on a Disney-owned and operated cruise line, the main stage shows on the Disney Cruise Line are a spectacle of magic and entertainment. Attending one of these kid-friendly, Broadway-style musicals is a great way to end an exciting day at sea. These shows are large-scale productions - separate from the deck parties and other live entertainment that takes place on the ship.

Guide to the Disney Magic cruise ship

The Disney Cruise Line was introduced to the world in 1998, with the maiden voyage of the Disney Magic. This cruise ship, one of the smaller two of the fleet (along with its sister ship the Disney Wonder), offers itineraries around the world. Homeports have included Miami, Galveston, New York, Barcelona, Spain, and Dover, England, and the ship typically spends the summers in Europe.

Disney Wonder Ship Guide

The Disney Wonder, which had its maiden voyage in 1999, is the second ship from the Disney Cruise Line. It is also one of the two smaller ships (along with the Disney Magic), but still offers fun activities and amenities that are perfect for families. As a smaller ship, it is more manageable and can feel more intimate and comfortable.
