Missing Disney Cruise Line? Create The Perfect Playlist With These Tracks!

Disney Cruise Line holds a special place in the hearts of many Guests. A Disney Cruise experience is one like no other, and once you’ve sailed with Disney Cruise Line, you’ll understand what we mean by that.

We’re talking next-level Guest service, exquisite Disney dining experiences, unlimited fun, and ultimate magic. This is all whilst having the opportunity to see the world, explore new places and experience new cultures.

We mustn’t forget the incredibly beautiful ships that you will get to sail on too. Whether you’re sailing on the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, or Disney Fantasy, there is no better feeling than seeing your ship at a Port. We’d argue that the Disney ships trump any other cruise ship when it comes to design, looks, and wow-factor!

If you’ve not yet had the chance to experience a Disney Cruise, then it’s likely to be near the top of your Disney bucket list. Maybe, you even have your first Disney Cruise date set? If so, then we have all of the songs that you will need to create a playlist to help you get into the Disney Cruise frame of mind!

Or maybe you’re like us here at Disney Tips and always jump the chance of putting down a placeholder, to encourage you to book your next cruise with Disney Cruise Line very soon. If so, you’re probably missing the magic of a Disney Cruise Line vacation and need something that will help with the post-cruise blues. Alternatively, you’re needing something to remind you of your home at sea! Here, we have compiled a few lists that will help transport you back to your time spent with Disney Cruise Line.

Aboard the Disney Cruise Line Ships

Most of our favorite tracks from around the Disney Ships come from the Cabanas soundtrack. You can’t help but feel uplifted by the tracks played on the outside seating area whilst eating the delicious buffet offerings from Cabanas. You can imagine feeling the sea breeze through your hair overlooking the ocean. Holiday vibes right there! Of course, there are also some other favorites from around the ships that we’ve included below too; including those from dance parties, Pirate Night, and the pool area on top deck!

Disney Classics

The list could go on when it comes to Disney classics, however, we’ve kept it simple with the following tracks. All of these songs are pretty fitting with a Disney Cruise, seeing as they all have some connection with the sea. You’re guaranteed to hear these songs, as well as other Disney sounds around Disney Cruise Line.

Here’s a little tip, too: if you’re feeling a little rusty, you’ll want to add as many Disney songs as you can to your playlist to help with winning that famous Disney Cruise Line Mickey Medallion in Disney Tunes Trivia!

  • Under The Sea – The Little Mermaid
  • Hawaiian Rollercoaster Ride – Lilo & Stitch

Castaway Cay

The music loop from Castaway Cay is perfect for creating those island vibes! Every single song helps to add to the perfect setting of Disney’s private island in the Bahamas. Crystal clear waters sparkle in the bright sunshine and gently lap up the white-sanded beach that is lined with tall palm trees. We can’t help but sing along to these tracks, whether we’re lucky enough to be living our best island lives or are stuck at home, dreaming of island days once more!
