    Hi~ we're looking to book a Very Merrytime Cruise (a 3 or 4 day from Port Canaveral) next November 2017. Are all the November cruises Merrytime ones (from the 4th or so on?) or do we have to wait for them to release the exact dates before booking?

    Ahoy, Carrie!
    A few years ago, my family enjoyed an extra magical voyage during one of Disney Cruise LIne's Very Merrytime Cruises. From the moment we entered the cruise terminal at Port Canaveral, we were in awe of the gorgeous holiday decor. This continued on as we saw our first glimpse of the twinkling lights on the spectacular three-deck-tall tree in the Grand Lobby Atrium. It was the perfect backdrop for our Christmas card photo that year. Since Disney Cruise Line began these themed holiday sailings, they have been offered in the month of November. But, with that being said, the official announcement was not made for 2016 until late spring. For the 2016 sailings, the Disney Magic dates range from November 5-December 23, the Disney Wonder for November 10-December 23, the Disney Dream from November 7-December 22 and the Disney Fantasy from November 19-December 24. These special voyages offer festive fun with events such as the "Deck the Deck Holiday Party,' holiday themed activities and crafts, "Mickey's Tree-Lighting Magic," and your favorite Disney friends decked out from head to toe in their adorable holiday attire! It is definitely one of the most wonderful times of year aboard Disney Cruise Line!
    My advice is to watch the Disney Parks Blog for information on the 2017 holiday-themed cruises. This is the best place to get the latest news on Disney Cruise Line.
    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Carrie! Please let us know if we can assist you further with your merry plans!
