Disney Cruise Line Float Joining This Year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The Disney Parks Blog recently shared the news that a brand new kind of “maiden voyage” is coming to Disney Cruise Line! During this year’s parade, viewers at home can expect to see a float entirely devoted to Disney Cruise Line.

The float will be modeled after the newest ship to join the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the Disney Wish. This entirely unique “ship” will make its appearance during the 95th Macy’ Thanksgiving Day Parade (which we are also excited to see return after the holidays last year!).

Christened “Magic Meets the Sea,” the float is inspired by the design of the Disney Wish and will include iconic designs Guests are familiar with aboard Disney Cruise Line like its Mickey Mouse color scheme.

The float will also include a series of 15 Disney characters worked into the design. Each character included will be a representation of different experiences Guests can have aboard the Disney Wish. Some characters include Captain Minnie Mouse (in honor of the new kids experiences), Princess Tiana, Aladdin and Jasmine, Cinderella, and more.

You can watch this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC-TV on November 25, 2021. The parade will be shown from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, regardless of your time zone.

Hoping to set sail aboard the real Disney Wish? Disney’s newest cruise liner will make her maiden voyage in summer 2022. If you have not yet taken a Disney Cruise Line vacation, we do highly recommend it as it truly does offer the magic of the parks with the magic that comes with being at sea and traveling to new destinations! It was ranked one of the top cruise lines for the 10th year in a row by Conde Nast Traveler, after all.

And if 2022 is too soon for your next cruise, be sure to check out some of the 2023 itineraries that were just released by Disney Cruise Line.

Happy Thanksgiving!
