Disney Cruise Line-Star Wars Day at Sea


Disney is starting to put the purchase of Star Wars to use. A slew of new Star Wars movies are due out as well as rides and TV shows. We can add one more thing to the list of things taken over by The Force. Next year Disney Cruise Line guest will be able to party with characters from the Star Wars universe. The day-long celebration will take place on eight special sailings. It will be called Disney Fantasy: Star Wars Day at Sea. This will be the first time Disney has used the Star Wars characters on Disney Cruise.

Star Wars Day at Sea will transport guests to a galaxy far, far away — in the Western Caribbean. The event features a full day of Star Wars celebrations, including a deck party, meet-and-greets with favorite characters, Star Wars-themed youth activities, unique food and beverage offerings, and special merchandise.
