    Will Disney Cruises return to New York anytime soon? It was so convenient for us and we really want to take our grandchildren on a Disney cruise. Flying to your other ports is not an option for us.

    Hi there, Charlotte!

    Thanks for sharing your cruising wish with me. I'll share a secret with you, too: I'm making the same wish!

    I love that Disney Cruise Line voyages from New York give guests the chance to explore the city for a few days (Broadway shows, please!) before embarking on their cruise. And what a wonderful benefit for you to be able to cruise from a port that is close to home! At the moment there are no announced sailings out of New York, but we are anxiously waiting to hear about itineraries in late 2025. Perhaps there will be some magical news for us? We will have to wait and watch the Disney Parks Blog to find out!  

    Knowing that flying to other ports isn't a good option for you, I would suggest that maybe your grandchildren would enjoy a little Disney magic in the beautiful city of New York! Both 'The Lion King' and 'Aladdin' are great options for families. My son first saw 'The Lion King' when he was about five years old and he was totally captivated. I spent many years attending plays, musicals, and even the opera with my grandparents as I grew up, and those are some of my favorite memories of us together. I know it's not the same as a cruise, but it would certainly be an unforgettable experience for your grandchildren!

    I wish I had better news for you, Charlotte! I'm sure you are a magical grandmother whether you are cruising the high seas or simply sharing stories with your grandchildren. I'm hoping there will be some pixie dust sprinkled in your part of the world soon!

    Keep moving forward!
