Cruise with Favorite Pixar Characters

Imagine cruising the California coastline with Mr. Incredible, Remy, Woody, Jessie and Buzz Lightyear! If you and your family are fans of animated films, you know that these are some of the most beloved characters from Pixar Animation Studios’ award-winning films. And, if you’re a fan of Disney Cruises, you’ll be interested to know that Disney will present a series of four seven-night cruises featuring this wonderful cast of characters from September 16 through October 14.


The Disney Wonder will sail round-trip from Los Angeles, calling on San Francisco, San Diego and Ensenada, Mexico. While on board, guests will be able to meet, take photos and even dance with more than a dozen Pixar characters. They’ll also get an inside look at the creative process used to develop a Pixar animated feature or short film, such as the upcoming “Monsters University.”


Special events for guests of all ages will include presentations on the art of animated filmmaking by artists and filmmakers from Pixar. There will be an exhibition of Pixar storyboards, character sketches, environmental paintings and other art that is rarely seen outside of Pixar Animation Studios or a special art museum exhibit. While on board, guests will also be able to enjoy Pixar’s entire library of films. Pixar masterpieces will be playing in the Buena Vista Theater and the Walt Disney Theater; on the giant LED screen on deck; or on in-stateroom television.


As a special memento of the cruise, guests will be able to take home complimentary commemorative lithographs created by the co-director of Pixar’s theatrical release, “Brave.”


In addition to the special Pixar events, guests will have all the amenities of the Disney Wonder to explore. The three pools on Deck 9 – one for children, one for families, and one for adults – are always popular gathering spots. With lots of organized activities for kids, parents and grandparents can indulge in gourmet dining or some socializing in the clubs and lounges of the ship’s Route 66 adults-only entertainment district.


There are also lots of great family excursions to choose from while the ship is in port. In San Francisco, visit the Golden Gate Bridge or the Walt Disney Family Museum; in San Diego, passengers can head to the San Diego Zoo, Coronado Island, the Gaslamp Quarter or even the beach.
