The Disney Cruise line hit it out of the park with their Buena Vista Theater. This movie theater located on board each of the Disney cruise ships seats a little over 250 and plays not only first run films, but also has the ability to show movies in 3D.
Going to the Movies on a Disney Cruise
While you might find different Disney movies playing depending on how long the cruise lasts, pretty much all of the Disney Cruise Ships (Dream, Fantasy, Magic and Wonder) will have the same movie line ups.
This is even more true when it comes to new releases.
Heading to the movies on board your Disney Cruise? You will find a refreshment stand that serves popcorn, candy and canned soda (and beer), but you are free to bring your own with you.
I try to pack snack sized movie theater candy for our cruise and we’ll stop by the beverage station before we go to the theater.
What Movies are Playing on our Disney Cruise?
If you are trying to find out the specifics of what movies are playing and at what time, you will want to look at your Disney Cruise Navigator. All of the movies on the Disney Cruise are listed on your Disney Cruise navigator (your daily newsletter) giving you the ability to plan ahead.
List of Current Movies on the Disney Cruise Line
- Captain Marvel
- Christopher Robin
- Mary Poppins Returns
- Ralph Breaks the Internet
- The Incredibles 2
- Avengers End Game
Most of the family movies are run during the day into the early evening. Later at night, you may find films tailoring more toward adults (rated R).
No tickets are needed to see movies at the Buena Vista theater. You simply show up at the movie time listed in your Personal Navigator, find a seat, and there you have it!
We have never had a problem getting a seat as there are nearly 400 seats in the theater and movies typically run more than once per cruise.
You might want to give yourself a little extra time if you want to purchase concessions because usually there is only one person working the counter.
