It seems hard to believe, but it has been 25 years since Disney Cruise Line launched its very first luxury liner — the Disney¬†Magic. Since then, the Disney Cruise Line has added four more amazing ships to its fleet — the Disney¬†Wonder, the Disney¬†Dream, the Disney¬†Fantasy, and most recently, the Disney¬†Wish. Each cruise ship has its own unique Disney spin, and Guests can experience one-of-a-kind dining options, special theatrical shows, and even water rides like the AquaDuck and the AquaMouse — which is Disney‚Äôs first “attraction at sea‚ÄĚ.
