If you're planning a trip to Disneyland California and you want to extend your LA Disney experience beyond the Disneyland Resort boundaries, or if you've already done the theme parks and you're looking for a new Disney experience, you can schedule in a Disney Cruise departing from San Diego. They used to depart from the World Cruise Center at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro, but now only stop in San Diego as they reposition. 

Which Disney Ships Depart from Los Angeles?

The Disney Wonder, which used to offer cruises from the Port of Los Angeles, has moved its Southern California port of call to San Diego, so there are not currently any Disney Cruise offerings out of Los Angeles or Long Beach, but that can always change, so keep an eye on their cruise schedule.
The art nouveau décor of the Disney Wonder incorporates iconic Disney characters along with nautical wave themes. A bronze statue of Ariel, from The Little Mermaid greets guests in the lobby of the ship.
