The Walt Disney Company all started with a mouse projected on a movie screen, and its cruise line takes those beginnings seriously. From the sumptuous Buena Vista Theatre on deck 5 aft/4 & 5 midship with its 268/360 stadium-style seats and two-story screen, to the giant 24-by-14-foot outdoor screen on decks 9 & 10/11 & 12, and the free, round-the-clock Disney movie channels or on-demand video on your stateroom TV, you’ll never lack free filmed entertainment on a Disney cruise.

Buena Vista Theatre

Of course, you’ll see Disney animated classics and first-run films from Disney’s motion picture divisions. You can also see popular, non-Disney movies a few months after release. Headline films, including Disney premieres (same day they debut on land), may be shown in the larger Walt Disney Theatre. Disney Digital 3-D is installed on all ships and you can expect at least one 3-D film during your cruise. Films are mostly rated G and PG (with some PG-13 and a rare R in the Buena Vista Theatre only) and are shown at age-appropriate times. Movies are free, and they start as early as 9:30 am—the last show usually starts between 10:00 pm and 11:00 pm. Check your Personal Navigator, the Disney Cruise appor the theater for a list of movies during your cruise. Matinées on at-sea days are popular—arrive early for a good seat. Wondering what will be playing when you cruise? About a week before you cruise, you can call 888-325-2500, choose the “reservations” option, then ask the representative., or check the DisneyInsiderTips.com web site. Tip: If you like to snack during your movies, a stand outside the theater sells packaged snacks, popcorn, and beverages. To save money, order from room service or take a detour up to deck 9/11’s snack counters.

The big-screen outdoor movies on the Ariel View Television/Funnel Vision (see page 27) are always rated G or PG and show a wide variety of Disney favorites. The large, bright screen is affixed to the stack above Goofy’s/Donald’s Pool (deck 9/11 midship). Films play in afternoons and evenings, and movies play throughout the day and evening. We highly recommend the Movie Under the Stars, when you can lay on a deck chair under the night sky and watch Disney movies on the huge screen.

Your stateroom TV has plenty to watch, too... more than 50 channels on the Magic Class, or a huge selection of on-demand entertainment on the Dream Class, and it is all free! Below are examples from the channel guide (channels and stations may vary). Use the TV for Disney background music. Check your stateroom for a printed movie listing. Expect about a dozen highlighted features, plus many Disney and Pixar classics. On the Magic Class, the “all movies, all the time” channels (241-264) each start a new movie every three hours, on a staggered schedule. Tip: You may be able to watch recordings of the live stage shows on your TV—look between 6:30 pm and 10:30 pm on show nights.
