Behind the Scenes of Disney Cruise Line’s ‘Tangled: The Musical’

posted on April 14th, 2015 by Ray Smale, Cruise Director, Disney Cruise Line

Many of you joined us last week at Disney Cruise Line’s first-ever meet-up as our Creative Entertainment team gave a sneak peek at some of the new fun coming soon to our ships. What a great show! I was honored to be a part of it and have the chance to talk with our talented show directors about our new entertainment experiences inspired by “Frozen,” Star Wars and “Tangled.”

One of the highlights was getting a behind-the-scenes look at “Tangled: The Musical” in production. For those of you who weren’t able to join us in person, we don’t want you to miss the exciting video we shared. You’ll see scenes from rehearsal and hear from part of the team adapting this beloved Disney tale to the stage for the very first time. Check it out!

Which “Tangled” star are you most excited to see on stage?

Disney Cruise Line Itinerary Options from Miami

posted on January 22nd, 2013 by Ray Smale, Cruise Director, Disney Cruise Line

Hi again, Disney Parks Blog fans! I just boarded the Disney Wonder this past weekend, and I am so excited to be a part of Disney Cruise Line’s inaugural season from Miami. Sailing out of this vibrant city for the first time on Saturday was such a fun experience for me!

One of the great things about Disney sailing from Miami, other than departing from such a bustling and iconic metropolis, is the abundance of itinerary options. Here’s a snapshot of the variety you have to choose from when planning a Disney cruise from South Florida in 2013:

Which of these voyages is the best fit for your family?

Disney Fantasy Decorated for First Holiday Season

posted on November 23rd, 2012 by Ray Smale, Cruise Director, Disney Cruise Line

Hi Disney Parks Blog fans, I’m Ray, cruise director on the Disney Fantasy, writing to you from the warm waters of Castaway Cay. I’ve been with Disney Cruise Line for 11 years, and I was lucky enough to join the crew of the Disney Fantasy for the ship’s inaugural year. (You may recognize me from the Disney Fantasy video journals as the ship crossed the Atlantic Ocean after being built in Germany!)

It’s the Disney Fantasy’s first holiday season, and guests and crew alike are excited about all of the holiday festivities taking place this month and next. When guests arrived to the ship this week, they were welcomed with a very special surprise – the ship decked to the “raft-ers” with holiday cheer!

Check out this fun video as Santa’s elves worked quickly to put up the 20-foot-tall Christmas tree in the Disney Fantasy’s atrium lobby:

You’ll get to see other décor throughout the ship in upcoming posts from Disney Parks Blog author Jonathan Frontado, who will be sharing more about the Disney Fantasy’s first holiday season.

I imagine there’s a good amount of relaxing going on at Castaway Cay today after our extravagant Thanksgiving feast last night. But I also imagine there’s a good bit of joy being spread since guests were greeted on the island with a beautiful Christmas tree, “snow flurries,” holiday island music and their favorite Disney friends in holiday attire!

The Disney Dream also got her holiday makeover this week, and the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic are ready to be decorated this weekend. Do you share the Disney cruise tradition of decorating for the holidays this week?
