    My family and I would like to plan a short cruise in december where we end up at WDW for christmas! I think we're shooting for 2-3 days at sea and then port in time to spend Christmas Day at the resort. Help please!

    Ho-ho-ho, Ari!

    Thanks for bringing your very merry question to us here at planDisney! I'm so happy you wrote to us because nothing is better than planning a Disney holiday on Land & Sea. Your plan sounds so holly jolly that I can hardly wait to help you make this dream come true!

    I checked the Disney Cruise Line website and it appears that you have two options for sailing out of Port Canaveral on a Very Merrytime Cruise. What a perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit! One is a 3-Night cruise aboard Disney Wish, December 20-23, with stops in Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney Castaway Cay. The other is a 4-Night cruise aboard Disney Fantasy, December 18-22, with stops in Disney Lookout Cay at Lighthouse Point and Disney Castaway Cay. Either of these sailings will have you singing "Roll Out the Holly" all the way to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Ari, you will love a Very Merrytime Cruise. The ship is decked out in holiday decor and there are special events each day like Story Time with Mrs. Clause, caroling, Characters in their finest festive attire, and more! 

    My recommendation is to contact Disney Cruise Line directly and allow one of the helpful Cast Members to plan your Land & Sea vacation for you. They can even arrange for transportation between the port and Walt Disney World Resort for you (for an extra fee) and provide information for events such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. There is no cost to use their planning services. 

    Visions of sugarplums are already dancing in my head, Ari! I hope you will call today and make plans for this yuletide vacation. Christmas aboard Disney Cruise Line and at Walt Disney World is my favorite time of year, so let me know if you have other questions!

    'Tis the season to make magical memories,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
