In fall 2016, Disney Cruise Line will return to New York for a limited time with sailings to the Bahamas that include a visit to Walt Disney World in Florida. New seven-night Caribbean cruises from Miami and a return to Galveston round out the season.

Disney Magic will sail from New York on seven-night cruises Oct. 15, 22 and 29 that stop at Castaway Cay and Port Canaveral.

Each sailing gives the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World when the ship calls Port Canaveral. Each passenger will receive a one-day Walt Disney World Park Hopper ticket and round-trip transportation between the ship and the resort.

On Oct. 2, Disney Magic will sail from New York on a five-night cruise to Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Saint John, New Brunswick.
