On November 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.

Showcasing the grandeur of a Disney Cruise Line vessel, the new float will feature iconic design elements including a Mickey Mouse-inspired colour palette, towering red funnels and an intricate filigree motif along the hull. 

The float will feature 15 favourite Disney friends who represent the stories and experiences on the Disney Wish, including Captain Minnie Mouse, Princess Tiana, Aladdin and Jasmine, and Cinderella, whose beautiful bronze statue will grace the fairytale-inspired Grand Hall.

“The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a treasured tradition at the heart of family holiday celebrations,” said Sharon Siskie, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Disney Cruise Line. “We are honoured to collaborate with Macy’s for this renowned event and build upon the shared legacy of creating magical memories year after year. Just like the Disney Wish, our float will be a celebration of enchanting Disney storytelling, beloved characters and wishes come true,”

“The entire Macy’s Parade team is thrilled to welcome Disney Cruise Line to this year’s outstanding Parade lineup,” said Jordan Dabby, Producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. “This magical float will enchant an audience of millions in New York City, and nationwide on television with Disney’s signature brand of imagination and innovation,”
