Disney Cruise Line announced it will join the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The cruise line will debut a new ship-inspired float which will ‘embark’ on its maiden voyage down the streets of New York City in the annual event. The ‘ship’ named, ‘Magic Meets the Sea’, is inspired by Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship Disney Wish which is slated to set sail in summer 2022.

As the standard with any Disney Cruise Line ship, the float will feature an iconic design including red funnels and a filigree motif on the hull. Joining the float for the parade will be 15  iconic Disney characters that represent special experiences that guests will find on the Disney Wish. Some of of these fan-favorite characters include Captain Minnie Mouse, who proudly adorns the ship’s bow; Princess Tiana who is featured in an interactive adventure; Aladdin and Jasmine, whose story is featured in a Broadway-style stage show on board; and Cinderella, whose beautiful bronze statue will grace the Disney Wish fairytale-inspired Grand Hall.

“The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a treasured tradition at the heart of family holiday celebrations,” said Sharon Siskie, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Cruise Line. “We are honored to collaborate with Macy’s for this renowned event and build upon the shared legacy of creating magical memories year after year. Just like the Disney Wish, our float will be a celebration of enchanting Disney storytelling, beloved characters and wishes come true.”
