Disney Cruise Line deck parties and fireworks are a great way to increase the excitement of an already anticipated cruise! Each ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet has at least one party during its voyage. Whether it’s the Sail-Away Celebration, a night with the pirates, or time with Pixar Pals there is a lot of fun for all!
Firework displays are something that Disney does well, whether it be on land or at sea, and Disney Cruise Lines’ fireworks are the first in the world to be offered by a cruise line at sea. Take a look at the various Deck Parties and Fireworks that you could experience on your next cruise.
