Whether you’re lining the city streets of New York City or watching from the comfort of your home, one of the greatest ways for families to kick off the holiday season is by watching the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade together.

Disney Cruise Line debuted an all-new cruise ship float during the turkey day tradition last year, and I am thrilled to share that the same stunning vessel will be returning to the parade later this month! This year, our majestic “ship” – inspired by the fantastical style of the Disney Wish – will float through the streets of New York once again, accompanied by an all-new performance in Herald Square.

This year’s live parade performance will be inspired by one of the new Broadway-style shows on board the Disney Wish, “Disney Seas the Adventure.” Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse and Goofy will lead an incredible cast of performers and Disney characters in this show-stopping number, which has quickly become a guest favorite aboard our newest ship.

Check out the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this magical float and its pixie-dusted debut last year.

Be sure to gather your friends and family and tune in to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC-TV on Nov. 24 from 9 a.m. to noon in all time zones.

We’ll “see you real soon” on 34th Street!

  • I’m so excited! Can’t wait to watch. I’m pretty sure y’all have given LOTS of attention to WDW’s 50th Anniversary— I’ve seen it all across all sorts of media as well as at WDW — for the past YEAR!

    Can’t wait to sail Wish next year! Sailed Magic last month — NE/CA cruise! A M A Z I N G!!!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️

  • So, are you all here to tell me that you all are bringing back The Disney Wish to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade when you all have something bigger going on called the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World?
    I love Disney Cruise Line and I wish that it was in the cards for me in my life but when there is something much bigger and more special going on, please use this time to give me something special because those are the things that will have more of a stop and look effect in my life.
    Otherwise, it’s good to see a Disney entry in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade at any time, any year because it makes me want to watch the show.
    Everyone, sail safely and happily!
