What better place to start your high seas Disney Cruise Line adventure than in the very town whose first known European settler was a pirate? The cultured and debonair privateer, Jean Lafitte established the colony of Campeche on Galveston Island in 1817. Lafitte was forced to leave (burning the town behind him), and Galveston as we know it today grew out of the ashes.
Disney Cruise Line has announced Galveston, Texas as one of their newest ports of departure for the Disney Magic to the Western Caribbean. The first cruise out of Galveston is set to sail on September 22, 2012 for a 7 Night Western Caribbean adventure. The itinerary includes stops on Grand Cayman, Costa Maya, and Cozumel, Mexico.

This year, Walt Disney World guests will be able to celebrate the luck o’ the Irish in a big festive way! Continue reading Walt Disney World Resorts Celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day
