After a spectacular summer in Europe, the Disney Magic is now sailing across the Atlantic to kick off our fall voyages from New York City. For the next couple of months, we’re taking Disney cruisers from the Big Apple to beautiful destinations in Canada, Bermuda, Florida and the Bahamas…with plenty of exciting Port Adventures to entertain the entire family.
But that’s not all we have in store for cruisers departing from New York City. A visit to New York isn’t complete without seeing a theatrical show, which is why we’ve reserved tickets exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests to see some of the most popular shows on Broadway. Whether you arrive to New York early or extend your vacation after the cruise, you can have the perfect night out in the city watching Disney stories come to life on stage.
Experience Disney’s “Aladdin” at the New Amsterdam Theatre, “The Lion King” at the Minskoff Theatre or, new for 2018, the Broadway retelling of “Frozen” at the famed St. James Theatre in the heart of Times Square!
Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions, “Frozen” premiered on Broadway in March 2018. You’ll be amazed at the stunning artistry, music and choreography of this musical theatre phenomenon. The all-new production was created for the stage by an award-winning team and features twice as many songs as the original film.
In addition to taking in a show, only Disney Cruise Line guests can go behind the music to tour the New Amsterdam Theatre and discover how Disney creates such amazing Broadway performances. The New Amsterdam Behind the Magic Tour lets you get an up-close view of the original props, costumes and set pieces that bring the world of Disney to life on the stage.
Remember, when the ship’s in port, venture ashore…and in this case, venture to Broadway to make the most of your time in New York City before and after your cruise!
