Disney Cruise Line Deck Parties and Fireworks

Disney Cruise Line Deck Parties and Fireworks

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, Marvel heroes and villains, or your favorites from Frozen 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.

Sail-Away Celebration

Looking forward to Embarkation Day? There’s something else to be excited about, too — The Sail-Away Celebration! This party ushers in the start of the Disney cruise vacation. Join the Disney cruise Crew Members and Disney characters for a dance party that is filled with fun music and interactive dance numbers. This party comes complete with roving cameras that project your image on the jumbo television screen, confetti and streamers rocketing through the sky, and “When You Wish Upon a Star” playing on the ship’s blow horn.  (All Disney Cruise Line Ships)

Pirates IN the Caribbean Deck Party and Fireworks

Enjoy an entire day with touches of a pirate theme culminating in a fantastic deck party and fireworks. For the younger ones, there are activities in the youth clubs to get in the spirit. Families can enjoy a game show in the afternoon to test their pirate knowledge. Pirates have even taken over Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and transformed the space into the Pirates League. Guests are transformed into pirates, recite the oath, and officially join Captain Jack’s crew.

Pirate Night officially starts at dinner in the Main Dining restaurants as the servers wear pirate garb and greet guests with an “Ahoy Matey!” or “Arrrr!” and a pirate bandanna at each place. After dinner, head over to the pool deck for entertainment starring your favorite Disney characters decked out in their finest pirate garb. Watch out for the skull-and-crossbones projections because they signal the arrival of Captain Hook, Mr. Smee, and their gang of pirates. Wait to see Mickey and his friends save the day! This party ends with a spectacular fireworks finale. Fireworks weather permitting and not offered on Alaskan cruises.  (All Disney Cruise Line Ships)

Pixar Pals Party

The Pixar Pals Party is available only on Disney Wonder (Alaska Sailings) and takes the place of Pirate Night. Enjoy a dinner with a “Toy Story” theme and party with familiar characters from some of your favorite Disney Pixar films. There will be an opportunity to get autographs and dance and sing with characters like Buzz and Woody.

Marvel Day at Sea – Deck Party and Fireworks

Cap off the Marvel Day at Sea with spectacular deck and stage shows, night club activities, and Mickey and the gang dressed as their favorite heroes. Families have a front seat to an epic battle between Marvel Super Heroes and villains on deck in a spectacular stunt show ending with fireworks as only Disney can do them. For those who prefer entertainment inside, Doctor Strange is displaying his powers in the Walt Disney Theater. Adults get the chance to party in the Ravagers Night Club in Fathoms with appearances by Star-Lord and Gamora. Young children and families get to have their own dance party on deck with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, Pluto and Chip ‘n Dale dressed as their favorite heroes.

Frozen Deck Party

Join Elsa, Anna and Kristoff along with virtual visits from other Frozen characters up on deck for a really cool party! The evening starts with a Frozen themed dinner offering traditional Nordic dishes. After dinner, move up on deck for dancing and singing to your favorite tunes from Frozen.  For non-dancers, Sven is hosting reindeer games on the transformed upper decks. To set the mood for the evening, Elsa has created a winter wonderland with snow covered rocks, giant snowflakes, and icicles. (Disney Magic and Disney Wonder select cruises only)
