Enjoying the Shows
Enjoying the Shows
Depend on the world’s greatest entertainment company to deliver the best live shows on the Seven Seas. Disney turned to Broadway and Hollywood for inspiration (rather than Las Vegas), and delivers shows that the whole family enjoys. Live shows are presented in the Walt Disney Theatre on deck 4/3 & 4 forward, a 975/1,340-seat showplace. State-of-the-art staging, sound, and lighting systems (there are nearly 400 stage lights!) and a very talented cast combine to entertain you.
On all of the cruise itineraries, you can expect to see three elaborately produced stage shows. Cruises of 4 nights or longer may include a movie screening. The 7+-night cruises add a welcome aboard variety show, an entertainer (such as a juggler or magician), and a farewell variety show. Shows are held twice nightly at roughly the same times as the dinner seatings (see page 160), so if you have the early seating, you’ll see the “late” show (and vice versa). Shows are 50 to 55 minutes long. Arrive about 15 to 30 minutes before show time to get a good seat. Disney doesn’t allow videotaping, photography, or the saving of seats in the theater. Preludes (just outside the theater) sells beverages and snacks, or bring your own. Smoothies and beverages are sold in the theater before the show.
Disney Dreams (Magic and Wonder)—Every Disney fan will be misty-eyed by the end of this “bedtime story!” Anne-Marie is visited in her dreams by characters from her favorite Disney stories. It’s the most popular show aboard, so be prepared for a full house and arrive early. Check your Personal Navigator for an extra performance in the afternoon.
Disney’s Aladdin–A Musical Spectacular (Fantasy)—The beloved Disney film comes to life, “Street Rat,” Genie, Princess Jasmine, Magic Carpet, and all!
Disney's Beauty and the Beast (Dream)–Coming November 6, 2017. Inspired by the live-action film. (See a short video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zM8Zm3oDRc).
Disney’s Believe (Dream and Fantasy)—A no-nonsense dad learns to believe in magic with the help of his daughter and Aladdin’s Genie, featuring scenes from beloved Disney classics.
Disney’s Wishes (Fantasy)—A trio of high school friends contemplate adult life at a last fling at Disneyland. Beloved Disney characters and music bring them insight.
Frozen, A Musical Spectacular (Wonder)—Join Anna, Elsa, and their Frozen friends for a brand-new production based on the wildly popular animated film. Debuted following the Wonder's late 2016 dry dock. (See a short preview at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1vm4cBtvxQ)
The Golden Mickeys (Wonder and Dream)—This delightful, Hollywood-style award show includes favorite musical scenes from Disney films, just as you might see at the Oscars.
Tangled: The Musical (Magic)—Three new songs from Alan Menken and Glenn Slater grace this stage adaptation of Disney's animated take on Rapunzel.
Twice Charmed—An Original Twist on the Cinderella Story (Magic)—What would happen if an Evil Fairy Godfather turned back time to stop Cinderella from wearing the glass slipper?
Variety and Cabaret Shows (Magic, Wonder, Fantasy)—Featuring guest performers who do a short sampling of the shows they’ll perform later in the night clubs.
Villains Tonight (Dream)—Hades, Pain, and Panic (who “starred” in the cruise line’s Hercules the Muse-ical) are on hand to drive the plot forward, while an incredible lineup of Disney villains make their musically evil way across the stage. This stage show ends in November 2017 in favor of Disney's Beauty & the Beast.
Welcome and Farewell Shows (Magic, Wonder, Fantasy)—The 7-night and longer itineraries include special shows to kick off and wrap up a memorable voyage. The Magic Class features the Let the Magic Begin and Remember the Magic shows.
