Booking Date and Itineraries Announced for Fall 2023 Disney Cruises

Have you ever been on a Disney cruise?

The Disney Wish!

Disney cruises offer so much to see and do while onboard the ship, from tons of unique restaurants, to kids only zones, live entertainment, and more! If you’ve been eyeing a Disney Cruise Line vacation, now may be the time to book because Disney just released the itineraries for Fall 2023, which include the popular Halloween on the High Seas and Very Merrytime voyages. Let’s take a look at them!

Fall 2023 cruises start as early as September with new ports and new destinations, too! For example, the Disney Dream will sail to and from New York City for the first time ever on cruises to Bermuda as well as cruises headed northward into Canada. The Disney Dream will also have one cruise next fall that departs from Southampton, England, visiting Spain, Portugal, and Bermuda, before ending in New York City.

Also for the first time ever, the Disney Dream will sail out of Fort Lauderdale on cruises headed to the Western Caribbean and the Bahamas. These sailings begin on November 20th, 2023.

The Disney Magic will offer two cruises out of Miami, Florida, but the second ends in San Diego, California and from then until the end of the year, the Magic will sail from San Diego on two-to-seven night cruises to Baja and the Mexican Riviera.

And the Disney Wish and Disney Fantasy will continue to sail out of the typical Port Canaveral on cruises to the Bahamas and destinations in the Caribbean.

Of course, fall sailings with Disney Cruise Line mean that you’ll get to take part in either Halloween on the High Seas or a Very Merrytime cruise! Halloween on the High Seas cruises take place beginning in mid-September through October 2023. Guests on these cruises will be able to see characters dressed in their Halloween costumes, trick-or-treat at sea, and even take part in Mickey’s Mouse-querade party. There will also be a Halloween tree and a “scare-a-bration” with characters dressed in their costumes.

Guests on these sailings are welcome to bring costumes of their own for the celebration.


When the spooky fun is over, from early November through December, you can celebrate the holidays with Very Merrytime Cruises. On these cruises, the characters will be dressed in holiday outfits and you’ll be able to see a tree-lighting ceremony, holiday decorations, and even Santa and Mrs. Claus!


These sailings open to the general public for booking on July 28th, 2022, but you may be eligible to start booking early:
