Disney Cruise Line Announces Summer 2022 Itineraries

Disney Cruise Line Announces Summer 2022 Itineraries

Thursday, March 18th, 2021

Disney Cruise Line will offer families exciting adventures around the world in summer 2022, including voyages to new destinations and favorite ports of call in the Greek Isles, Mediterranean, northern Europe, Alaska and the Caribbean. Plus, first-ever summer departures from Miami will take guests to Disney’s enchanting private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay.

Explorations in the Greek Isles, Mediterranean, Northern Europe and Beyond

In summer 2022, a new collection of destinations will be part of the Disney Magic’s grand tour of Europe, which begins with sailings through the Greek Isles and Mediterranean before heading to northern Europe for cruises to the Baltic, the British Isles, Iceland and the Norwegian fjords. Five new ports of call in Europe include Chania, Greece; Porto, Portugal; Riga, Latvia; Maloy, Norway; and Nynashamn, Sweden, near Stockholm.

From Rome, eight-, nine- and 12-night cruises to Greece will whisk families to the beautiful landscapes and archeological wonders of destinations like Piraeus, the gateway to Athens, and to the spectacular Greek islands of Santorini and Mykonos. One nine-night sailing will mark Disney Cruise Line’s first call to Chania, Greece, on the island of Crete, known for its charming harbor and Venetian and Florentine influences.

Mediterranean voyages from Barcelona, Spain, will visit a mix of must-see locales including Rome and Naples, plus French Riviera coastal towns like Villefranche and Cannes. During a seven-night cruise from Barcelona to Dover, England, Disney Cruise Line will make its first-ever visit to Porto, Portugal, a coastal city with old-world charm nestled in one of the world’s leading wine regions and made famous for giving Port Wine its name.

Additional new ports of call in northern Europe include Riga, the capital of Latvia and the largest metropolis in the Baltics; Nynashamn, Sweden, a beautiful seaside town just outside Stockholm; and Maloy, Norway, a charming coastal village bordered by silver-sand beaches and historic lighthouses.

Adventures in Alaska

The Disney Wonder will return to Alaska for the 2022 summer season to explore the region’s breathtaking natural vistas, glaciers and wildlife. Departing from Vancouver, Canada, most of these seven-night cruises will visit Dawes Glacier, Skagway, Juneau and Ketchikan. Two of the cruises will call on Icy Strait Point in place of Skagway.

Each Alaska sailing will offer adventure in port and fun aboard the ship, with stunning scenery, exciting Port Adventures and special Disney Cruise Line touches that will bring the splendor and spirit of “The Last Frontier” to life on board.

First-Ever Summer Cruises from Miami

For the first time ever, families can sail out of Miami during the summer season, enjoying even more opportunities to visit Castaway Cay. Every cruise from Miami in the summer of 2022 features a stop at Disney’s private island paradise. The June 7 voyage marks the Disney Dream’s inaugural cruise from Miami, as the ship has previously only homeported in Port Canaveral, Florida.

In addition to visiting Castaway Cay, three- and four-night cruises from Miami will call on Nassau, Bahamas, while five-night cruises include a stop at either Grand Cayman or Cozumel, Mexico. One special five-night sailing features two stops at Castaway Cay, along with a call on Nassau.

Tropical Vacations from Port Canaveral

Tropical vacations to the Caribbean and Bahamas continue aboard the Disney Fantasy from Port Canaveral near the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. Each Disney Fantasy voyage features a visit to Castaway Cay.

The Disney Fantasy will embark on an assortment of itineraries to the eastern and western Caribbean throughout the summer of 2022, including seven-night voyages, a special five-night sailing and an extended nine-night cruise.

The nine-night Disney Fantasy cruise features a first-time call on Roseau, Dominica, an eastern Caribbean destination filled with natural hot springs, exquisite waterfalls and tropical rainforests. This mountainous island is bordered by pristine beaches and crystal clear water perfect for aquatic activities.

Pre-Cruise Escapes with Adventures by Disney

In summer 2022, Disney Cruise Line Guests can extend the magic of their cruise vacation in Europe with a pre-cruise escape in select cities from Adventures by Disney, a leader in family guided group vacations.

Adventures by Disney offers popular pre-cruise vacations in Rome, London, Barcelona and Copenhagen. These two- to three-night escapes feature unforgettable experiences in iconic cities, such as a private, after-hours visit to the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel in Rome. In addition, activities like flamenco dancing, mosaic making and preparing locally inspired cuisine immerse families in the culture of each region.

Bookings for these Adventures by Disney offerings open to the public March 25, 2021.

Why Stay at an Onsite Universal Resort Hotel?

Tuesday, March 16th, 2021

When it comes to vacation time, there is something to be said about convenience.  Let’s face it, our vacations always go by way too fast, and so we all want to make the most of the time that we do have for them.  Therefore, when it comes to the Universal Orlando Resort in Florida, there is great value in opting to stay as close as you can get to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  After all, no spell a muggle can conjure up is going to make your vacation longer than it is.

Loews Portofino Bay Hotel

Needless to say, proximity to the Universal theme parks is a very big reason that when vacationing to the Universal Orlando Resort, you want to stay inside Universal.  But let me take a moment to share with you a few more:

ExpressPass | Guest staying at * Premier hotels get to skip the regular lines at most popular attractions in Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure, including attractions inside The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Early Entry | Each and every day, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens one hour early for all Universal Resort Hotel Guests.   This allows you with just enough time to get in that one favourite attraction before the park officially opens.  This is also a great perk if you plan to experience new and/or popular attractions as mornings may offer the shortest waiting time.

Waterway to the theme parks

Waterway to Theme Parks

Transportation | Forget about the hassles of car keys and parking.  When staying in Universal, there is no need to rent a vehicle.  There are motorcoaches, water launches and your own two feet to take you everywhere you need to be.

Onsite Location | Oh-so-close to the parks!  The ability to take a mid-day break to go for a swim, nap or just to re-charge your batteries is much more realistic when staying so close to the theme parks.

Pool Hopping | Pool-hopping privileges to use other Universal hotel’s recreational facilities (excluding Endless Summer Resort).

Package Delivery | There is no need to carry souvenirs or similar purchases with you.  Enjoy Universal’s complimentary parcel delivery service to your Universal hotel.

Priority Seating | Guest staying at *Premier hotels receive priority seating at select restaurants throughout both theme parks and enjoy first available seating for your party size at select Universal CityWalk Restaurants.

Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort

Character Calls | Optimus Prime asking you to “rise with me now” can help start off your day with a smile.  From the phone inside your hotel room, you can schedule a wake-up call from various Universal Orlando characters.

Charging Privileges | Talk about convenience.  No need to carry cash or credit cards, when you can take advantage of Universal’s resort-wide charging privileges with your room key.

All of the Universal Orlando Resort hotels are beautiful properties, with incredible theming, dining, recreation and pools.  And most importantly, they offer a wide range of room types from budget-friendly options to minion bedrooms all the way up to luxurious suites.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Opens on October 1st!

Wednesday, March 10th, 2021

Everyone’s favorite “Little Chef” is cooking up something really big for the Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary, because the grand opening of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT is set for October 1st of this year!

That date may sound familiar, as it will also mark exactly 50 years since Walt Disney World officially opened for the first time.  So Chef Remy will help us kick off “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” in Parisian style.

In this delicious new attraction, Guests will feel like they’ve shrunk to the size of Chef Remy as they scurry through Gusteau’s famous restaurant on a wild adventure for the entire family (no height requirement).  Based on Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award-winning “Ratatouille,” the experience will be part of a newly expanded France pavilion inside EPCOT.

Also opening October 1st will be La Crêperie de Paris, a new restaurant offering both table- and quick-service options.  The menu will feature sweet crepes, savory buckwheat galettes (naturally gluten friendly) and authentic French hard cider.  The attraction, restaurant and pavilion expansion are all part of the historic transformation of EPCOT currently underway, celebrating how the impossible becomes possible through the power of imagination – and a little Disney magic.  This amazing time in the park’s history has already brought us a reimagined main entrance with new entrance fountain, “The Soul of Jazz” exhibit and new films in three different pavilions, with much more on the way.

Remy will be joining in for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” an 18-month event that will feature new experiences at the four Walt Disney World theme parks and beyond, where shimmering EARidescent décor will appear as if by magic.

It’s time to take back the magic.  Contact Fairytale Dreams & Destinations™ Inc. to be a part of The Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th Anniversary Celebration today!

Work Continues on ‘Harmonious’ at EPCOT

Monday, March 1st, 2021

EPCOT has always been a special place where the world comes together to celebrate human achievement.  Nothing has embodied this spirit more over the years than the park’s lineup of original nighttime spectaculars.

Although Disney has not yet determined when their next spectacular will debut, Walt Disney Imagineering and Disney Live Entertainment teams are hard at work building on that legacy with “Harmonious.” This grand, original spectacular is a tribute to the power of story and song that unite us, leveraging music and visuals from across Disney and artists around the world.


“Harmonious” is a global effort, truly embracing the magic of possibility.  In recent weeks, Disney Live Entertainment technical designers across the country have been programming various elements of the show, from media and fountains to lighting and pyrotechnics, working in a completely virtual environment.  The music producers at Walt Disney Imagineering have been remotely directing recording sessions with an incredibly diverse array of musical artists, performing in studios around the world.


Once complete, “Harmonious” will be one of the largest nighttime spectaculars Disney has ever produced.  Disney Imagineers are busy setting the stage of this innovative toolkit, preparing each of the show’s five floating platforms to take its place on World Showcase Lagoon.  Positioned like a compass, these platforms house the primary show equipment for “Harmonious,” and on the recently-placed centre platform stands an iconic six-story-tall central ring structure, supporting a high-density water curtain, moving lights, fountains and more.

Contact the team at Fairytale Dreams & Destinations to plan your vacation to see Harmonious today!

MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack: Defending the Galaxy for More Than 20 Years

Thursday, January 28th, 2021

MEN IN BLACK Alien Attack is located inside Universal Studios at the Universal Orlando Resort.  And after 20 years, it’s no wonder this ride has endured and remains one of the fan-favorites at the parks.  After all, who doesn’t love the idea of joining a secret agency that defends Earth and the universe from alien scum?  And with new MIB movies released over the years, the viral sensation of storming Area 51, and the recent confirmation of unidentified objects, it only continues to remain relevant.

The first Men in Black film hit theaters in July 1997 with wild success.  It had the perfect formula; an incredible cast, great comedic and action-packed writing, and a storyline that hooked into the age-old question of does intelligent alien-life exist?   It was just begging to be made into a theme park ride, and who better to make that a reality than a destination that touted the tagline “Ride the Movies”?  When the ride opened in April 2000, it did so to a wave of fanfare.  It was the most ambitious for animatronics at Universal Orlando.

Once you board the ride and your training begins, you’re told that your help is needed with an alien invasion that has hit New York. It’s your job to zap those alien bugs and save planet Earth. The more aliens you defeat and the more points you get, the closer you are to earning your very own MIB suit.  This interactive element hooks into the competitive nature in all of us and provides a huge repeatability factor largely because Guests wish to beat their own previous score.  But no matter what you do, don’t push that red button!

So, here’s to many more years of competitive banter, zapping bugs, saving the universe on a daily basis, and forever earning the last suit you’ll ever wear.  The good guys dress in black, remember that.

Changes Coming to the World-Famous Jungle Cruise at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom Park

Tuesday, January 26th, 2021

Disney Parks continue to look for ways to enhance classic attractions and elevate the experience for all Guests.  The story of the Jungle Cruise at both Disneyland park at Disneyland Resort and Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort will be updated to include new adventures that stay true to the experience we know and love – humour, wildlife and skipper heart – and also reflect and value the diversity of the world around us.

There are no bigger fans of this attraction than Disney Imagineers.  Here is Kevin Lively – former Jungle Cruise skipper – to share a transmission from the world’s most remote tropical rivers.

The Jungle Cruise is a slow moving attraction for all ages.  Board a canopied tramp steamer piloted by your trusty skipper, who will expertly navigate you through some of the world’s most treacherous waters.

Steam past lush foliage, butterflies and waterfalls on the Amazon in South America.  Glimpse an abandoned camp overrun by curious gorillas on the shores of the African Congo.

Along the Nile, watch for bathing elephants, angry hippos and hungry lions.  Your cruise continues down the Mekong River in Asia, home to baboons, cobras and other fearsomely life-like creatures.

Contact Fairytale Dreams & Destinations™ Inc. when you’re ready to experience this 10-minute, 10,000-mile journey that you won’t soon forget.

Tom Holland in WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure Coming to Avengers Campus at Disneyland Resort

Tuesday, January 19th, 2021

When Avengers Campus opens at the Disneyland Resort at a future top secret date, you will see a very familiar face inside the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – or WEB as the kids call it.  Tom Holland reprises his role as Peter Parker for WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure.

Tom shared more details about his role in the attraction and his excitement for working with Walt Disney Imagineering on this new adventure.  Check out this first look below!

In the WEB workshop, young engineers specialize in developing innovative technologies to equip and empower a new generation of Super Heroes.  This workshop showcases the inventions of Peter Parker and the rest of the WEB Tech team, including their adorable Spider-Bots, which are designed to be robotic sidekicks capable of building anything a Super Hero might need.  When Peter’s demonstration goes awry, the Spider-Bots are stuck in a replication loop, creating even more Spider-Bots!

Donning 3D glasses, your mission will be to test-drive the aspiring inventor’s latest invention, the WEB Slinger vehicle, and discover your web-slinging super powers!  Through specially designed, innovative technology that recognizes body movements and gestures, you will reach out your hands and sling webs from your wrists, just like Spider-Man.  As the WEB Slinger vehicles progress, they will virtually pass through several other Campus addresses, including Pym Test Kitchen, Avengers Headquarters and the Collector’s Fortress, also home to Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!  As the mission continues, Spider-Bots will become harder and harder to beat as they continue to multiply.

WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure is just one of the many addresses found inside Avengers Campus, an entirely new land dedicated to discovering, recruiting and training the next generation of heroes at Disney California Adventure park.

Are you spider senses tingling?  Contact Fairytale Dreams & Destinations™ Inc. to learn more about Avengers Campus at the Disneyland Resort today!
