How could having a Mass possibly offend "those of other persuasions". I am grateful that Disney offers this for us.

I think we have a reading comprehension error here. No one said anything about persuading or making anyone do anything. What was said is that celebrating ONE type of religion and not the others could be offensive to those of other religious persuasions. That means offensive to folks belonging to other religions.

Lets all make sure we know what we're reading before hopping all over someone for it.

Thanks.

This was a typo not a reading error. I meant to quote the OP and say offend rather than persuade. Anyway, just curious what the OP meant. I still think the OP could be interpreted in multiple ways including yours and I certainly didn't mean to "hop over anyone". Let's give others the benefit of the doubt.

Thanks - you're typo was snowballing and another poster then moved on to persuading and making people go to mass - that could only have ended badly!

Back to the original question - I would prefer an interdenominational service, as a catholic mass isn't going to float my episcopal boat.

Last year aboard the Dream, on Easter Sunday, there was a Christian service (pretty close to sunrise if I recall correctly) and Catholic Mass, a little later in the am. Friends of ours who we sailed with attended this service, and we attended Mass.

We have a Sunday departure in May and are staying at Hyatt MCO Sat night. Anyone know of a Catholic church near the airport for vigil Mass?

If you go online Masstimes.com gives you this information throughout the US and if I remember right worldwide. We use it all the time when we travel. Sue

The PP mentioned masstimes.org, even better there's a smartphone app for masstimes.org! We've successfully used it several times when traveling.

From what I've heard, they offer both a Catholic Mass and a non-denominational Protestant service on Easter. Disney is very responsive and I'd be surprised if they didn't respond to passenger requests to the best of their ability.

Thank you so much for the infomation, I just booked my first DS for March 29 a week ago.(used to booked one when Disney just came to Galveston, I wanted for 18 months for Thanksgiving cruise, however, due to some urgent family matter I have to cancelled that.)
Look forward to seeing you then!

TrixieM,

Likewise, this is one of the reason delaying my booking at the first place, however, heard the big holidays DCL could have this service onboard, plus my kids have the school off for a week for Easter, therefore, no miss any days from school. I'm not sure if you are going to the meet n greet or not. I'm sure we will be In the same mass service for sure....hihih .

Take care and hope to see you on board.

Hi Annie,

We're with you. We wouldn't have scheduled an Easter cruise without confirming we could make it to Mass. Also, this will be spring break week for us. We are planning to go to the DIS meet and will will look for you there.

Best wishes!

We were not there during those holidays but when we were on the Magic they had a nondenominational service on Sunday.
