This Thanksgiving, a new ship is setting sail through the streets of Manhattan as Disney Cruise Line will have a brand new parade float in the iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

What’s Happening:

  • On Nov. 25, Disney Cruise Line’s brand-new cruise ship float will embark on its maiden voyage in New York City as part of the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • The imaginatively designed “ship” has been christened “Magic Meets the Sea” and is inspired by the fantastical style of the Disney Wish, which sets sail in summer 2022.
  • During its inaugural Parade voyage, the float will feature 15 favorite Disney friends who represent the stories and experiences aboard the newest ship in the fleet, including Captain Minnie Mouse, Princess Tiana, Aladdin and Jasmine, and Cinderella, whose beautiful bronze statue will grace the fairytale-inspired Grand Hall.
  • Showcasing the grandeur of a Disney Cruise Line vessel, the new float will feature iconic design elements including a Mickey Mouse-inspired color palette, towering red funnels and an intricate filigree motif along the hull.
  • Additional details about Disney Cruise Line’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade appearance are anticipated in the near future.
  • The 95th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will air nationwide on NBC-TV, Thursday, Nov. 25 from 9:00 a.m. to noon in all time zones.
