A couple new signature shore excursions have been added to the list of Port Adventures for Disney Magic® when she makes New York City her home port this summer.
- The New Amsterdam Theatre Backstage Tour with The Lion King on Broadway (Pre & Post Cruise Only)
- The New Amsterdam Theatre Backstage Tour with Mary Poppins on Broadway (Pre & Post Cruise Only)
Both of these tours start off at the New Amsterdam Theatre located just off Times Square. Here you will have an exclusive tour of this New York City landmark. This theater, along with the Lyceum Theatre, is the oldest Broadway venue in NYC. For years, this theater was a movie theater from 1937 to 1985, after which the Walt Disney Corporation came in to lease the building and renovations were then done. You will visit areas not open to the general public, including the props archive room and meet with the Disney Theatrical Group.
Following your tour, you will pick up tickets for either Mary Poppins (at New Amsterdam Theatre) or The Lion King (at Minskoff Theater). Pricing ranges from $137 to $174 per person and lasts 4 to 4.5 hours.
Bookings for signature Port Adventures is a little different than most shore excursion. A request form must be completed and then emailed to Disney for confirmation. Full payment is required at the time of confirmation rather than once onboard. Bookings will not be available onboard and must be requested at least 30 days prior to your cruise date.
