Disney Cruise Line has added yet another magical offering with all-new Magic Shots, a photo experience where Disney Cruise Line photographers capture your family’s vacation memories with some of your favorite Disney Characters in their sailor attire! Featured characters include Tinker Bell, Captain Mickey, Captain Minnie, Sailor Pluto, Chip & Dale, Sailor Goofy, Cruise Director Daisy, Sailor Donald, and you can even make your Castaway Cay pictures more magical with Magic Shots of Sebastian, Hei Hei and Flounder. Guests both onboard and on land can even get a sprinkle of pixie dust in the form of Mickey clouds added to your vacation photos.

Disney Cruise Line photographers will be shooting Magic Shots at various locations throughout the ship and on Castaway Cay for our Bahamas and Caribbean itineraries. While there are no scheduled times and locations for Magic Shots, just ask our friendly photographers about adding in the feature during each encounter throughout your cruise.

Disney Cruise Line has also made some changes to its final payment policy. For sailings through March 31, 2022, Disney Cruise Line is temporarily extending final payment until 60 days prior to sailing for Guests booked in unrestricted stateroom categories. This means that those Guests who have not yet reached their final payment due date can wait until up to 60 days prior to sailing to pay for their cruise vacation. Onboard cruise activities can be scheduled within each Guest’s Castaway Club booking window once final payment is received.

In addition, Disney Cruise Line is temporarily relaxing the cruise cancellation fee schedule for sailings through March 31, 2022, as described below.
