Get ready Pixar fans, in early 2023 as the Disney Fantasy cruise line will venture to the Caribbean waters on select 7-night trips and include a special “Pixar Day at Sea.” This special Pixar one-day event will feature loads of character meet-and-greets, entertainment, and even a Pixar-themed dinner. Check out more details below (compiled from the Disney Parks BlogDisney Cruise Line, and Disney Parks TikTok sites).

As a side note — this isn’t the first time a Pixar-themed cruise set sail. First launched in 2012, the Disney Wonder ship was decked out in Pixar magic as it sailed the California coast and included presentations by many Pixar employees.


In addition to a Pixar film festival, exclusive merchandise, and photo opportunities, Pixar Day at Sea will include a variety of one-of-a-kind experiences, including:
