Disney Cruise Line Shares New Experiences for Star Wars Day at Sea DCLSW01

As part of Disney Parks Blog’s 12 Days of Disney Parks Christmas, Disney Cruise Line has shared details about some new and updated experiences coming to the Disney Fantasy when Star Wars Day at Sea returns next year.

Guests will be able to get into the spirit of the celebration before it even starts as the Buena Vista Theatre presents screenings of all the Star Wars films throughout the cruise, including the newest release, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Then, as a hint of things to come, the night before Star Wars Day at Sea, Darth Vader and Stormtroopers will march into the atrium in a new show of Imperial strength.

The Dark Side’s influence continues the next day as Kylo Ren joins Darth Vader in a special Jedi Training Academy, where young guests will learn the ways of the Force and battle Darth Vader or Kylo Ren.

The Resistance will be present as well as Chewbacca asks guests to help him track down Porgs that are wreaking havoc on the ship in the new Porgs Onboard! Scavenger Hunt.

The fun continues as guests get a chance to draw some favorite Star Wars characters in the Star Wars Drawing Academy, or pose in front of a life-size replica of Han Solo frozen in carbonite. The cruise staff will also host games, trivia and other activities out on the pool deck or in the D Lounge.

Young guests might also enjoy Droid Racing in the atrium as guests race BB-Unit droids through a special course. The whole family can test their skills as master droid builders in a new hands-on activity.

In the Oceaneer Club, C-3PO will participate in a special activity where young guests will be trained as members of the Resistance.

The day culminates with Summon the Force, where Rey takes the stage during a nighttime deck show celebrating some of the greatest Star Wars moments, then Star Wars Day at Sea concludes with a fireworks show to the John Williams classic soundtrack.
