Following on the heels of debuting its first-ever Pixar Day at Sea in January, Disney Cruise Lines has announced that it will extend the popular new offering through early 2024.
And in equally exciting news for Disney fans everywhere, the cruise line has also revealed another brand new themed sailing—Marvel Day at Sea, which will feature the most popular personalities from renowned comics, films and animated series.
Pixar Day at Sea
The popular Pixar Day at Sea, which first launched last month, is offered on seven-night Caribbean cruises aboard Disney Fantasy.
When it initially kicked off, the themed sailing only included dates through March 2023.
However, with its latest announcement, Disney Cruise Line has extended the opportunity to take part in this immersive experience through next year with the following nine new dates:
– Departing Jan. 6, Jan. 20, Feb. 3, Feb. 17, and March 2, 2024, the eastern Caribbean itinerary includes Tortola, St. Thomas and Castaway Cay.

The cruises sail from Port Canaveral, Florida and the highlight is a dedicated Pixar Day at Sea that takes place halfway through the weeklong getaway. On the special day, there’s a packed slate of Pixar-related entertainment including opportunities to meet the wildly popular characters from Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story,” “Monsters, Inc.,” “The Incredibles,” “Finding Nemo” and more.
Some of the most popular events include a themed breakfast with live singing and entertainment from the cast of Toy Story, a pool party with Crush from Finding Nemo, and two high-energy shows at the end of the special themed day featuring a full-roster of Pixar characters, including one show starring The Incredibles. There’s also a themed dinner with Crush from Finding Nemo, special talks from PIxar animators, and animation drawing classes for all ages.
