Sun-Drenched Getaways from South Florida

The Disney Dream will begin early 2024 with an assortment of three- and four-night getaways to the Bahamas and five-night vacations to the western Caribbean, all of which will feature classic Disney Cruise Line experiences such as Broadway-style shows, innovative dining, character encounters and fireworks at sea.

All sailings from Florida will include a stop at Castaway Cay, a picturesque private island oasis reserved exclusively for Disney Cruise Line guests. Located in the turquoise waters of the Bahamas, Castaway Cay provides the ultimate escape with something for everyone in the family, including adventure, relaxation and quality time.

Tropical Vacations from Central Florida

The Disney Wish will kick off 2024 with three- and four-night voyages to Nassau, Bahamas, and Castaway Cay departing from Port Canaveral, Florida, Disney Cruise Line’s home port located just one hour from Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. Cruises aboard the Disney Wish combine enchanting entertainment and numerous Disney Cruise Line firsts, bringing to life Disney, Marvel, Pixar and Star Wars stories around every corner of the vessel. 

Also from Port Canaveral, the Disney Fantasy will continue seven-night sailings to the white-sand beaches of the eastern and western Caribbean. Eastern Caribbean cruises will visit Tortola and St. Thomas, while western Caribbean itineraries will feature the ports of Cozumel, Mexico; Grand Cayman; and Falmouth, Jamaica. Every Disney Fantasy sailing also includes a stop at Castaway Cay, along with several days at sea, giving the family more time to enjoy all the fun and relaxation offered on board.

Caribbean Adventures from Texas and Louisiana

The Disney Magic will have two limited-time engagements in Galveston in early 2024. After ringing in the New Year from the Lonestar State, the ship will embark on Caribbean adventures ranging in length from four to six nights through the end of January. Upon returning for another month-long stint between March and April, the ship will sail cruises ranging from four to seven nights to the western Caribbean during the popular spring break period.

New Orleans will welcome the Disney Magic back for a second consecutive year in February 2024 with four-, five- and seven-night cruises to the Caribbean. The Big Easy is the perfect city to extend a vacation either before or after a cruise to enjoy jazz and jambalaya in the city that inspired Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “The Princess and the Frog.”

In this edition of What’s Cooking from Disney Eats, we'll be giving everyone the full run-down of all the new dishes on the way!

Starting out at Maji Pool Bar, this spot will be refreshing its menu starting on Dec. 8 to add poolside snacks with an African twist. First up is the Shrimp Bakuli, which means bowl in Swahili. This dish is inspired by the open-air food markets found in Zanzibar, Chef Sahib Bhatti’s home country, where each evening as the sun sets, the vendors prepare seafood delicacies with the day’s catch. The bakuli includes chilled poached shrimp, pickled carrots, and Basmati rice with a flavorful soy-ginger dressing and berbere aïoli.

For plant-based diners, the chefs have also created a new offering just for them – the Multigrain Tabbouleh. This bowl is comprised of a vibrant salad with protein rich grains, fresh herbs, and grilled vegetables. How delicious!

For those with a less adventurous palate, the team has developed two more traditional offerings with African flair. The Spiced Pork Nachos are topped with spiced pork, beans, herbed crema, and kachumbari. The ‘spiced pork’ used is pork vindaloo, originally from Goa but based on a Portuguese dish ‘carne de vinha d’alhos.’ This tender pork is prepared with flavors of paprika, garlic, tomato, vinegar, and a house-made spice blend.

Another mouth-watering option available is the Short Rib Grilled Cheese. The short ribs are slow cooked with a house-made spice blend, tamarind, and red wine until tender. The buttery brioche bread is topped with short ribs, gouda cheese, and pickled onion and pressed to order.

The Mara will also be adding a few items to the menu starting on Dec. 8. For those who are looking to keep their safari on the tamer side, there is the Marinated Sun-dried Tomato and Herbed Ricotta Flatbread with sun-dried tomatoes, fresh herb ricotta, tomato sauce, four-cheese blend, and arugula.

 

ab9a3db7-67cd-44cc-b559-14b88209b882.jpg

 

For those looking to walk on the wild side, the chefs have created three new bowls sure to please. The Chermoula-spiced Shrimp Bowl is a must-try with grilled shrimp, pilau rice, kale slaw, cucumber-tomato salad, and chermoula sour cream. Pilau rice is similar to rice pilaf, and this version is simmered with The Mara’s unique spice blend and utilized as the base for all three bowls. Also available is the Oak-grilled Chicken Bowl made with marinated chicken thighs, slow-roasted over the oak-fired spit.

 

9e79ddc9-2d70-4363-b93f-ab0c48010bab.jpg

 

Rounding out the new additions at The Mara is the plant-based, and very tasty, South African Vegetable Bowl, a perfect balance of flavors! Chef Wendy Welcovitz and Sous Chef Khuloud Abu Samra drew inspiration from South African cuisine to thoughtfully craft each component: curried vegetable stew, pilau rice, kale slaw, dried fruit achar, and avocado-tahini sauce.

Of course, no trip to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge is complete without experiencing the vibrant flavors simmering at Jiko: The Cooking Place and this winter is no exception. Guests can always enjoy fan-favorites like the Oak-grilled Filet Mignon or Braaied Wild Boar Tenderloin, but there is a new appetizer to try – Sweet Potato-Groundnut Soup. This soup features spiced groundnuts, finger lime, pickled red chilies, and sorrel. Now, guests may be asking ‘what is a groundnut?’ Popular in modern African cuisine, they know this ingredient as a peanut, the name is used in reference to how these legumes grow… in the ground!

Last, but certainly not least, to celebrate the premiere of Avatar: The Way of Water on December 16, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge will be introducing a signature beverage for those over 21 to ‘sivako!’ Available at Boma: Flavors of Africa, Sanaa, and Victoria Falls Lounge, Way of Water is a shimmering blend of African Starr Rum, BACARDÍ Raspberry Rum, Bols Blue Curaçao, and lemonade garnished with a glowing lotus flower and mint.

There we have it – the delicious dishes and sips coming to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge this month! Happy eating!

Character Encounters

Characters will abound during Pixar Day at Sea, including character greetings with some of our favorites from Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story,” “Monsters, Inc.,” “The Incredibles” and “Inside Out,” along with Miguel (“Coco”), Remy (“Ratatouille”) and Dug and Russell from “Up.” Be sure to keep ears open for special ship-wide guest announcements from Dug, Dory (“Finding Nemo”), Edna Mode (“The Incredibles”) and Roz (“Monsters, Inc.”).

Fun on the Top Deck

Another way to celebrate the friends we've met throughout the day is the “Pixar Pals Celebration,” an interactive, high-energy deck party extravaganza in the early evening featuring many of our favorite Pixar pals.

During the day, families can ‘just keep swimming’ with a variety of activities – such as “Crush’s Totally Awesome Pool Party,” featuring pool-side games with interactions from the dude himself – and other surprise interactive moments on the upper decks.

An Incredible Deck Party

At the conclusion of Pixar Day at Sea, the Incredibles will be guests of honor at a super celebration up on deck – and everyone is invited! Join Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible and Frozone for “An Incredible Deck Party: Celebrate the Supers” as they receive a smooth sailing award for a spectacular day at sea – that is, until Jack-Jack is discovered on the loose about the ship. Action, antics and surprises ensue, ending with a fireworks finale that will send The Incredibles – and families – off in super spirits.

In between character encounters, pool parties and deck shows, there will be an abundance of Pixar-themed activities offered on this day at sea, including the chance to meet the Pixar storytellers behind the movies, learn to draw our favorite characters and watch many of the movies at the heart of the celebration.

Families will be able to test their memory skills with “Dory’s Memory Game,” get in touch with their emotions at the “’Inside Out’ Game Show,” become an honorary member of the Green Army Patrol during “Sarge Says,” make Remy’s favorite dish, Ratatouille, at “Anyone Can Cook” or take the stage with their best jokes during a “‘Monsters, Inc.’ Open Mike Nite.” Themed activities created especially for kids will include making music with Miguel (“Coco”), chilling out with Ian (“Onward”) and building their very own Forky (“Toy Story 4”).

A New Scene and New Critters Are Introduced for Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Today, we are excited to give guests a first look at a new scene and some of the brand-new characters we’re creating specifically for this attraction. In preparation for this new experience and the many exciting updates ahead, Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World Resort will be closed starting Jan. 23, 2023, so we can begin the next phase of this attraction’s development. Additional information about Splash Mountain at Disneyland Resort will be shared at a later date.

Fri, 02 Dec 2022 10:43:42 -0500 https://www.disneytravelagents.com/news/10331 https://www.disneytravelagents.com/news/10331 (Disney Destinations) Disney Destinations We’re getting closer to going down the bayou with Tiana and friends as progress continues on Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. Since the attraction was announced in 2020, Imagineers have been hard at work designing an immersive experience inspired by the Walt Disney Animation Studios film “The Princess and the Frog” and the heart and culture of New Orleans. We’ve shared additional details and some sneak peeks since then at events such as ESSENCE Fest and D23 Expo 2022, demonstrating how our research brought us to New Orleans in an effort to remain authentic to the story’s setting.

 

ec116a58-c8a8-4316-829e-563a323dbe7d.png

 

Today, we are excited to give guests a first look at a new scene and some of the brand-new characters we’re creating specifically for this attraction. In Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, guests will join Princess Tiana and jazz-loving alligator Louis during Mardi Gras season as they prepare to host a one-of-a-kind celebration for the people of New Orleans. This new scene is the thrilling moment guests first drop into the bayou and encounter some friends both new and familiar.

 

957afb9a-0e38-4513-98ae-a775ad025c79.jpg

 

As guests can see here, fireflies will light up the night and invite them deeper into the bayou … almost like they’re waving everyone forward. What guests can’t tell from this rendering – so they'll just have to trust us on this one – is that beautiful zydeco music will fill the air. Zydeco is a special blend of rhythm and blues that was born in Louisiana, and when guests hear it, they'll feel like they've truly stepped into Tiana’s world.

Here guests will find Louis, who explains where this amazing music is coming from. Tiana made some new friends out here – a band full of adorable critters, including an otter, a rabbit, a racoon, a beaver, a turtle and others. The band members sing and play instruments made of natural materials they found in the bayou. It feels like they may have a bigger role to play in this story … but we’ll just have to wait and see on that one.

Like so many musical genres, zydeco brings together the sounds and styles of many cultures. We wanted that spirit reflected in this scene (and throughout the attraction) so that all our guests feel welcome to join in the celebration. It’s emblematic of what we’re always striving for with our attractions – bringing people of different backgrounds together through timeless Disney stories. This new musical adventure provides us with a song sheet to write that concept into reality.

 d59f54ff-dbde-4a79-9b5f-5b80ca2b9eef.jpg

 

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will take guests on a journey inspired by the story and characters from the hit film, picking up where that story left off. In preparation for this new experience and the many exciting updates ahead, Splash Mountain at Walt Disney World Resort will be closed starting Jan. 23, 2023, so we can begin the next phase of this attraction’s development. Additional information about Splash Mountain at Disneyland Resort will be shared at a later date.

Continue following along for all updates relating to Tiana’s Bayou Adventure as it makes its way to Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort in 2024.
