The area features untouched beaches, lush jungles, idyllic waterfalls, and dramatic landscapes, including the Waimea Canyon, often described as the “Grand Canyon of the Pacific.” The port also provides the opportunity to experience local culture and flavor, from meeting the locals to exploring restored plantation buildings that house shops and restaurants.

How Many Disney Cruises to Hawaii Are There?

In comparison with other Disney Cruise Line destinations, Hawaii has significantly fewer sailings than other itineraries. There are typically two to four Disney Cruises visiting Hawaii each year.

Due to the small number of cruises, it is essential to book your trip as early as possible since there are only a limited number of staterooms available. The Vacationeer can help you pick out the perfect Disney cruise based on your budget and preferences.

How Long Are Disney’s Hawaii Cruises?

Disney Cruise Line offers a unique opportunity to experience the stunning beauty of Hawaii through a limited number of Hawaiian cruises. Disney Hawaiian cruises usually last 9-10 nights, while South Pacific Cruises (which also include Hawaii) last around 15 nights.

Experienced and adventurous cruisers may prefer these extended Disney cruises to Hawaii and Disney South Pacific cruises, spending more time in Disney’s Hawaiian ports of call and aboard the magnificent Disney Wonder out at sea. First-time Disney cruisers, however, may find the shorter Disney cruises from Florida to Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island, a better choice, as it offers a glimpse of Disney’s magical experiences without the commitment of an extended trip while still being in a sunny tropical setting.

Since availability is limited, it’s important to act quickly to secure your spot on one of these exclusive cruises. The Vacationeer can provide expert trip-planning guidance to ensure you choose the perfect Disney cruise that fits your budget and preferences. They can also keep you informed about future Disney Cruise Line Hawaiian cruise itineraries. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them with any inquiries – they’re friendly, and their services are free!

How Much Do Disney Cruises to Hawaii Cost?

Guests are often pleasantly surprised at how much value they receive on Disney cruises, and these Hawaiian cruises are no exception.

For example, the March 2024 10-Night Hawaiian Cruise from Honolulu to Vancouver starts at $5,200.

The cost of your Disney Hawaiian cruise depends on the stateroom type you choose and the number of people in your party. More luxurious staterooms generally begin at a higher price than those in the Inside tier. Adding more than two people to your reservation will also increase the cost.

For instance, if you have a family of four, an Inside stateroom starts at around $7,500. And if you want to upgrade to the Verandah category, which offers spectacular ocean views, it starts at around $7,800 for two people — and roughly $11,400 for four.

It’s important to note that prices and availability are subject to change, so it’s always wise to check with The Vacationeer for the most up-to-date information.

Also don’t forget to factor in airfare; these cruises are typically one-way voyages which do not return to the original departure port. You’ll almost certainly need to purchase “open jaw” airfare, with one leg of the flight being as far away as Canada or possibly even Australia.

Disney Hawaiian Cruises: What’s Included in the Price?

Disney cruises are all-inclusive, which is a selling point and a place where value is found. Dining, entertainment, activities, and services are all included in the price, as are character meet-and-greets, movie screenings, Broadway-quality shows, water activities, and fireworks.

Oceaneer Club, Edge, and Vibe provide complimentary activities for children and teens. At the same time, adults can access a range of amenities such as an adult-only pool, nightclub, and fitness center.

Moreover, the price of a Disney cruise includes port expenses, taxes, and fees, making it an exceptional value for families. However, keep in mind that airfare, gratuities, specialty restaurants, spas, shore excursions (Port Adventures), bottled beverages, and alcohol purchased on a Disney cruise aren’t covered.

The main restaurants include Triton’s, Tiana’s Place, and Animator’s Palate, which serve French cuisine, Southern cooking with live jazz, and contemporary cuisine with Disney characters, respectively. There are also a variety of other dining options, including a buffet-style restaurant, a sandwich and salad shop, a pizza place, and an adult-only Italian restaurant with live music called Palo.

Activities on Disney Wonder

Guests of all ages will find a wealth of activities onboard a Disney cruise. Disney Wonder attractions include Goofy’s Pool, AquaLab water playground, Frozen, A Musical Spectacular, and movies at the Buena Vista Theatre.

About the Disney Hawaiian Cruise Terminals

Disney’s 2024 and 2025 Hawaiian Cruises are all one-way cruises. Your cruise will start in either:

  • Vancouver (British Columbia), Canada
  • Honolulu, Hawaii
  • Sydney, Australia

You’ll end in one of the remaining two ports.

Given that most travelers from the US will be traveling from either Honolulu or Vancouver, we’re focusing on these two ports below.

Honolulu Harbor has two cruise terminals – the Aloha Tower Cruise Terminal (Pier 11) and Terminal Pier 2. Disney Cruise Line uses Pier 2, which offers modern passenger amenities and luggage storage for a nominal fee.

As the state’s principal airport, Honolulu International Airport offers regular domestic and international flights. It is easily accessible by Uber, taxi, or Oahu Island’s public transportation. The Port of Honolulu is about five miles from Honolulu International Airport.

The estimated prices are $19.16 for Uber X or Uber Green and $34.12 for Uber XL.

This amount is higher than what you’d pay for Uber X (but comparable to Uber XL fares).

Which Vancouver Airport Should I Use for a Disney Hawaiian Cruise?

The airport is known for its excellent restaurants, lounges, and shops, providing passengers with a relaxing and refreshing experience before or after their journey. YVR’s convenience, transportation options, and amenities make it an ideal place to begin or end a Disney Hawaiian cruise.

How Do I Get from Vancouver Airport to Disney’s Canada Place Terminal?

Ways to get from Vancouver Airport to Canada Place Terminal:

  • Ridesharing apps (Uber, Lyft) are popular and affordable.
  • Taxis are available but more expensive than ridesharing.
  • Public transit via Canada Line Rapid Transit SkyTrain takes 26 minutes and costs approximately $8-$10 per person per trip.
  • Renting a car is possible but unnecessary as many transportation alternatives are available.

How Much Does the Disney Shuttle Cost From the Airport to the Cruise Port?

Disney’s Vancouver shuttle service is available for $25 for a one-way trip (or $50 for a round trip). It does cost more than a taxi or Uber, especially for families or groups of more than two, but the convenience and peace of mind associated with the Disney brand could be worth it.
