‘Tangled: The Musical’ Coming to Disney Cruise Line

Exciting news from Disney Cruise Line just keeps on coming! Today we announced a brand-new stage show, “Tangled: The Musical,” premiering onboard the Disney Magic this November. It is the very first time this beloved Disney tale has been adapted for the stage, and what’s more, the production includes brand-new songs by Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken!


“Tangled: The Musical” will immerse you in Rapunzel’s fairytale world through lavish production numbers and spellbinding music. The show will stay true to the storyline from the hit feature film—with a few special twists to create a live staged production—featuring favorite characters like Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, the villainous Mother Gothel and Maximus the police horse. Three new songs created exclusively for this show by Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and Grammy Award-winning lyricist Glenn Slater will bring the story to life onstage.

Our highly talented entertainment team has been hard at work on this production, and they’ve given us an all-access pass to take you behind the scenes. Over the next several months, I’ll be sharing with you exclusive videos of this stage show coming together. Stay tuned!

Those of you on our November 11 four-night Bahamian sailing aboard the Disney Magic will be the first to see this new stage show spectacular! Which of you can I expect to see in the front row?


  • I too will be on the sailing right before the first show so I am disappointed too. Hopefully there will be a soft opening for the November 5th cruise.

  • This is the #worstdayever !! I am going on the first sailing in Nov and I am going to miss it. Please tell me there will be a soft opening…..

  • Is Nov 11 sailing set in stone? Would it get bumped to later?

  • I would love to see the new show!

  • Will this also be on the Magic 5 day cruise on Nov. 20th?????

  • Hi Jonathan, I am bittersweet over this news. I am a big Tangled fan (think it’s better than Frozen in fact), so I’m elated it’s getting the big stage treatment. I am, however, an Aladdin fan also (my fave Disney franchise), so I fear that this show may eventually replace Aladdin A Musical Spectacular at Disney California Adventure. Is there any way in Agrabah you can say that Tangled will in fact not replace AAMS?

  • We’re gonna miss it!! 🙁 We’ll be on the Magic in September.

  • YAY! SO glad to see Rapunzel getting some well-deserved love–she’s been pretty darned overshadowed by a certain set of sisters as of late. Well played, DCL! #BESTDAYEVER

  • That sounds awesome! New Alan Menken songs! Yay! I hope there’s going to be a way to get those songs on a CD or iTunes!

  • If this show is popular, will it take over the Aladdin show in Disney California Adventure?

  • This sounds awesome! I hope you take Tangled to the Disney Parks as well, and better yet, Broadway!

  • I’ve heard Villains Tonight is leaving the Magic to make room for Tangled.

  • Awww man disappointed doesn’t even begin to describe. We sailing the last week in October so we’ll miss this by 10 days. We are such huge tangled fans. 🙁 I supposed we’ll just hope and pray for a soft opening at the end of October. <3

  • Jonathan,
    Are there any plans on producing Tangled on the Dream or Fantasy?

  • Can’t wait to hear those new songs and see those videos! I’ve been looking forward to it ever since Alan Menken revealed it last year. 🙂

  • Any word on what show will be taken out of rotation?

  • So boss! We’re on the Nov. 15th Magic sailing, and our 5 year old daughter LOOOOOVVVVVEEEESSSS Tangled. It’s like y’all are custom building a cruise JUST FOR US! 🙂

  • It would be great if the shows rotated amongst the ships.
