Featuring unique, character-driven experiences, the day-long celebration will bring to life the beloved Pixar tales of “Toy Story,” “Monsters, Inc.,” “The Incredibles,” “Finding Nemo,” and more.

The full day will feature themed dining, character encounters, dance parties, and a theatrical musical experience, culminating in the all-around fun of a special deck party. A Pixar film festival, exclusive merchandise, and photo opportunities will also be available as part of the new celebration.

The three main experiences are as follows:

Character encounters – Guests will be able to dance, play and interact with their favorite Pixar pals, including Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Bo Peep from “Toy Story”; Mike, Sulley, and Boo from “Monsters, Inc.”; Joy and Sadness from “Inside Out”; Dug and Russell from “Up”; and Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and Frozone from “The Incredibles.”

Immersive entertainment – A new nighttime spectacular will call upon guests to help the Incredibles save the day, while a first-of-its-kind theatrical experience will bring to life the beloved story of Miguel and his family from “Coco” through live music and puppetry. Families will also be able to join the characters for a dance party bash.

Character dining – An interactive experience hosted by Sheriff Woody, Jesse, and Bullseye will kick-start the day with sing-a-longs, cowboy serenades, and country breakfast fixin’s, and a Pixar-themed dinner will offer dishes inspired by Pixar Animation Studios’ California location. Guests dining in the Animator’s Palate restaurant will enjoy an “undersea” occasion, with visits from “Finding Nemo” friends, including interactive conversations with Crush.

The Pixar Day at Sea will be included on nine select Disney Fantasy cruises from January through March 2023, departing from Port Canaveral, Florida, for either eastern or western Caribbean voyages.

Eastern Caribbean itineraries feature stops in Tortola, St. Thomas, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, while the western region sailings visit Grand Cayman, Cozumel in Mexico, and Falmouth, Jamaica. Every cruise also visits Disney’s sparkling private island oasis of Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.
