Disney Cruise Line Announces Fall 2019 Itineraries (September – December)

Disney Cruise Line announced their fall 2019 sailings today. The Disney Magic will return to New York following the European season with cruises to Bermuda before repositioning to Miami via San Juan for Bahamian and Caribbean sailings to close out 2019. The Disney Wonder will return to San Diego for a series of Baja and Mexican Riviera cruise and close out 2019 sailing Caribbean and Bahamian voyages from Galveston. In fact, there are even a couple of 2020 dates listed for the Wonder.

The Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy will remain at Port Canaveral. The Disney Dream will continue sailing alternating 3- and 4-night Bahamian cruises on Fridays and Mondays. The Disney Fantasy will stick with the alternating 7-night Western and Eastern Caribbean cruises.

There were no new ports of call included with these fall 2019 sailings, but Disney did include the 2019 Halloween on the High Seas and Very Merrytime cruise dates in the announcement. Typically, they hold this information back to generate a spark in bookings after the initial booking period.

In addition to the fall dates, Disney Vacation Club announced two DVC Member Cruises for 2019. The first, fills the itinerary gap from May 15 – 20th for the Wonder with a 5-night reposting cruise to Vancouver from San Diego.

The second is from New York aboard the Disney Magic, a 7-night cruise to Bermuda which includes a day in Boston.

There are currently two itinerary gaps with the Magic & Wonder. The Disney Magic has a 5-night gap October 22 – 26, 2019 from New York which I suspect could be a chartered sailing. I will update the site if we learn more about this sail date. The Disney Wonder has a 14-night gap beginning September 16, 2019 between the final Alaskan cruise and the reposting cruise to San Diego. I suspect this will be the Disney Wonder’s 2019 Dry Dock. In September 2011, the Wonder underwent a 14-day refurbishment in Vancouver.

Today’s release extended the available sail dates through 2019. These new sail dates will allow guest to plan vacations more than one year out, as well as take advantage of opening day pricing for some of the new itineraries.

Although the dates were announced today, general booking will not open until Thursday May 24th. On Monday May 21st, Platinum Castaway Club members will be able to book followed on Tuesday by Gold Castaway Club members, then on Wednesday Silver members can start booking. On Thursday, May 24th, first time cruisers will be able to book.

For the first time ever, Castaway Club members can book online beginning Monday! The only caveat is that this is for new bookings only as they do not have the website set up to move a placeholder to a new sail date. Those types of bookings will still require a phone call. However, given the ability to book new dates online, the call center shouldn’t be as bad, especially if the staffing levels are maintained.

Additionally, residents of Disney’s Golden Oaks will be able to book along with Platinum and DVC members who have not previously sailed with DCL can book along with Silver Castaway Club Members.

The following bears repeating, please do NOT try calling today to book; this will just clog up the phone lines and bog down the reservation cast members. There may be people attempting to book an available cruise vacation today.

Family fun awaits during departures from New York, California, Texas and Florida

CELEBRATION, Fla. (May 17, 2018) – In fall 2019, Disney Cruise Line will return to favorite destinations and home ports on a variety of itineraries, including adventures to Bermuda, Bahamas, Baja, Canada and the Caribbean. With cruises ranging from two-night getaways to weeklong vacations and beyond, this season of sailings offers countless opportunities for families to delight in Disney magic, explore exotic locales and make lifelong memories together.

Bookings open to the public on May 24, 2018. More details on 2019 itineraries can be found on the Ports and Itineraries for 2019 page of disneycruise.com.

Sailings to Bermuda, Bahamas and Canada from New York

The Disney Magic returns to New York in September for a selection of departures to a diverse collection of destinations, including luxurious Bermuda, sun-kissed Bahamas and historic New Brunswick, Canada.

Three special five-night cruises feature two days in Bermuda, allowing extra time for guests to indulge in the island nation’s famous pink-sand beaches, world-class shopping, abundant water activities and distinctive blend of British and Caribbean culture.

During two seven-night sailings from New York to the Bahamas, cruisers are treated to a double-dose of pixie dust. A stop at Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, is paired with a day at Port Canaveral, Florida, where every guest receives a one-day Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket and round-trip transportation to the theme parks in nearby Orlando.

A single five-night cruise to Canada transports guests from New York to charming Saint John, New Brunswick with a stop in Bar Harbor, Maine. Saint John is the home of majestic natural phenomena like the renowned Reversing Falls and the world’s highest tides, located where the Saint John River meets the Bay of Fundy.

Baja and Mexican Riviera Voyages from California

In September, the Disney Wonder sets sail for a limited engagement in San Diego, where guests embark on adventures to Baja and the Mexican Riviera. Baja itineraries highlight the region’s famous beaches and exciting water activities with calls on Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico. Two exclusive seven-night Mexican Riviera sailings feature the snorkeling and scuba diving hot spots Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlán and Cabo San Lucas.

Disney Cruise Line guests can enrich their experience by combining select San Diego-based cruises with a pre-cruise package from Adventures by Disney, a leader in family guided group vacations. During this three-night itinerary, guests embark on a rare behind-the-magic visit to The Walt Disney Studios and Disney Archives, a private tour of Walt Disney Imagineering and a visit to the place where it all began — the Disneyland Resort.

Vacations to Bahamas and Caribbean from Texas

Beginning late November, the Disney Wonder will make Galveston its home port for a special series of sailings to the Caribbean and Bahamas, with options at four, six and seven nights. Caribbean cruises include stops in Grand Cayman; Cozumel, Mexico; and Falmouth, Jamaica. Bahamian itineraries feature stops in Castaway Cay and Key West, Florida. Two of the Bahamian sailings also take guests to Nassau, Bahamas, while another includes an exclusive second day on Disney’s private island.

Tropical Escapes from Florida

In fall 2019, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy continue sailing guest-favorite itineraries to the Bahamas and Caribbean from Port Canaveral, while the Disney Magic returns to Miami in November with a variety of cruise lengths and itineraries.

The Disney Magic’s diverse lineup includes three-, four- and five-night Bahamian sailings and five- and six-night Western Caribbean cruises, and most itineraries feature a day ashore at Castaway Cay. Other ports of call on Bahamian voyages include Nassau and Key West, while stops in Grand Cayman and Cozumel headline the Western Caribbean itineraries.

The Disney Dream sails three- and four-night cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay. These itineraries make for the perfect family getaway, combining the magic of Disney with the ease and enjoyment of a tropical cruise vacation.

The Disney Fantasy sails seven-night Caribbean voyages, and every cruise includes a stop at Castaway Cay. Eastern Caribbean itineraries visit the Virgin Islands of Tortola and St. Thomas, and Western Caribbean cruises call on Cozumel, Grand Cayman and Falmouth. These weeklong experiences allow for even more family fun as guests make memories aboard their Disney cruise ship and at port in renowned tropical destinations.

The Disney Fantasy will also sail a selection of special itineraries. In October, an eight-night voyage transports guests south to St. Kitts, Antigua and San Juan, Puerto Rico, while a six-night Western Caribbean itinerary includes calls on Cozumel and Costa Maya, Mexico. Both itineraries are capped off with a day at Castaway Cay. In December, two unique seven-night itineraries include one cruise to San Juan, Tortola and Castaway Cay, and another voyage featuring two days on Disney’s private island after visits to Cozumel and Grand Cayman.

    Yay! I have been waiting for these dates to be released. If you are able to answer a question for me, I can avoid calling today to find this out. As gold, am I able to book 2 staterooms, one for me and another for extended family, or since they are not gold, will I not be able to book their room for them on Tuesday? Thank you in advance. I always appreciate all the great info I learn here! : )

      1. DCLCVA

        Gina, You can book two staterooms, just put someone in your family who is a Gold CC member on the other reservation. Now when it comes time to book excursions etc you will want to make sure you have the reservation as you want it. The other non-gold CC members can’t book excursions at the same time, but you probably already know that.

  2. Anonymous

    Thanks as always for putting this together, your info is so much more helpful than any other press release or official pages. One minor question/note, is the 10/5/19 sailing on the Magic supposed to be a Halloween one?

  3. Brian S.

    we are going to do our 1st 8 day cruise. oct 19th fantasy here we come. finally gold. hard to do from wisconsin.

  4. Katie T

    Are the prices usually cheaper right when they release the itineraries? I’m trying to decide if we should book today (silver members) or wait until September & book on board while on our next cruise (to get the discount/room credit). Are we able to book today & then “release” & re-book our room while on board in September? I know there’s a chance we could lose the specific room but would we even be able to do that?
