On Shore with Disney

When docked at port, you can explore on your own or with Disney's Port Adventures. These shore excursions are operated by independent contractors and vary by port, excursion type, age range and activity level (from mild to moderate to athletic). Minimum age requirements vary by activity. When booking, check online or with a Disney Cruise Line customer service representative to verify the age requirement. Passengers younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult on Port Adventures unless it's designated a "teen only" activity.

You can reserve your Port Adventures online 75 to 120 days prior to your cruise departure date (depending on how frequently you sail with Disney and which room you've booked). Or, schedule an excursion on board at the Port Adventures Desk on Deck 5. Cancellations are permitted free of charge up to three days ahead of the cruise departure date. After this deadline, excursion reservations are nonrefundable.

Possible shore excursions include zip lining tours on Antigua and aquarium visits in Key West, Florida. Additionally, you can sign up for adults-only excursions, such as historic tours and wine tastings. Many Caribbean cruises also offer excursions on Disney's privately owned island: Castaway Cay. To better navigate the plethora of available shore activities, use the Port Adventures planning tool available on Disney Cruise Line's website.
