Get ready for a new way to “wave” goodbye to work and school and say hello to your Disney cruise vacation with Mickey’s Sail-a-Wave Party on the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic! This high-energy countdown event on embarkation day features a few things we know you love – characters, dancing and a show-stopping performance – for an unforgettable way to start your cruise.

On a Disney cruise, you don’t even have to wait until the horn blows to get the party started! Grab your favorite characters (that is, your friends and family) and join Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Donald on the top decks for this fun-filled celebration. Dance alongside the crew and characters, and participate in the biggest “wave” on the high seas before the official sail-away countdown signifies the start of your vacation!

Mickey’s Sail-a-Wave Party

There are two ways you can get in on the action of Mickey’s Sail-a-Wave Party before you ever leave home. Order your own Mickey mitts ahead of time and plan the perfect sail-away outfit inspired by your favorite Disney character, because there is a moment in the show where cruisers get to walk the runWAVE to show off the best themed outfits!

Mickey’s Sail-a-Wave Party

Mickey’s Sail-a-Wave Party is already making waves aboard the Disney Wonder and will premiere on the Disney Magic on Feb. 22. Are you sailing on one of these two ships soon? Pack your Mickey mitts, don your best character-themed attire and don’t miss out on this opportunity to start your next cruise in style!


  • When will this be rolled out to the Fantasy and Dream?

  • This looks like the perfect way to dance around with our “just boarded the ship” energy and excitement! Mickey’s gloves are a superb touch and will be a wonderful souvenir!

    • We agree, Jessica! We hope you enjoy the party next time you are onboard!

  • I wonder if the mitts be offered for sale other places that the Disney store website? Non-USA shipping is ridiculously expensive. Perhaps before you board or such?

    • Hi Wendy! These are also offered under “Gifts and Amenities” on They will be waiting for you in your stateroom if you purchase that way!

  • Will it eventually make its way to the Disney Dream and Fantasy?

  • Is this new Sail-A-Wave Party going to be permanent for both the Disney Magic and Wonder or is this one only temporary for Mickey’s 90th Celebration this year in 2019?

    How long will they be doing it for?

    I would love <3 to experience this new Sail-A-Wave Party on the Disney Magic come August 2019 when I sail and finally go to Northern Europe.

    • Thanks for the note, Brandon! This is a new party for both ships and will officially be onboard during your sailing (it debuts on the Disney Magic later this month!). Enjoy your trip to Northern Europe!

  • Just got off the Wonder and was able to see the first “Sail-a-Wave”. The cast of the Wonder did a great job but this new offering falls short. Nothing about it is special to the cruise line, nor does it spark excitement about the amazing cruise you are about to have.
