5 Don’t Miss Activities During Star Wars Day at Sea on the Disney Fantasy | #DisneyCruise Series

My husband and I are huge Star Wars fans – we even honeymooned at Disney’s Star Wars Weekend in 2009 and walked out to the Imperial Death March at our wedding. So when we were planning a family cruise, we just knew we had to take advantage of Disney’s Star Wars Day at Sea onboard the Disney Fantasy’s 7 day cruise. Star Wars day actually started the night before, when Captain Phasma showed up unannounced with some Stormtroopers to look for “rebel scum” that were hiding on our ship. That in itself was pretty amazing (and my 5 year old was a bit freaked out) but it only got better from there. There were so many amazing activities throughout the entire day. If you are going on a Disney Cruise that features the Star Wars Day at Sea, here are a few activities that you can’t miss out on!

I have never had an issue with mine, they are always well made – and totally adorable!

Our Moana Viewing Party Fun + Win Your Own Digital Copy! | #Moana #Disney #MoanaOnDigital

When I was vacationing with my family in Disney World last November, we were lucky enough to see Moana a few days before it came out. We actually watched it on the beach at the Polynesian Resort – and despite being an uncharacteristically cold night in Florida, it is a great family memory of ours. We all loved the movie so much that my husband came home and immediately got HeiHei and Pua tattoos! We are also planning to get matching Mini Maui tattoos soon. So of course we were thrilled to hear that Moana was finally coming out on Blu-ray and DVD! It recently became available on Disney Movies Anywhere and Digital HD/3D. We actually rented it from a hotel when we were on vacation a couple weeks ago. But Moana is coming home on Blu-ray and DVD on March 7 and it is jam packed with amazing bonus features!
