Disney Cruise Line’s sister ships Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy are just like real life identical twins. Exactly the same on the outside, but different on the inside, two fabulous ships with unique characteristics that set them apart.
Once upon a time, Donald Duck’s nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie, dreamed up a fantastic water coaster in their madcap AquaLab. It was a water driven ride that blasted raft riding guests through translucent tubes out over the sea and all over the upper reaches of the Disney Fantasy. As the story goes, Uncle Donald was the first to test out the flume ride before it was completely finished. He flew out of the open pipeline and right into the ship’s forward funnel. His image is forever immortalized in 3-D with his rear extremities protruding out of the stack where he landed. Continue reading AquaDuck On The Disney Fantasy Is A Blast→
I just returned from a 3 night cruise on the brand new Disney Fantasy. Wow, what a beautiful ship! As I was arriving at the port, I thought of all the steps and processes that guests must take in order to just board one of these Disney beauties, and I thought wouldn’t be a good idea to break down a few of the processes and also touch on the debarkation process as well to make it easier for people who haven’t cruised before… but might want to consider it; >) Continue reading Disney Cruise Line Embarkation and Debarkation Process→
What is the first thing you think of when you think of a cruise? FOOD! Unlimited quantities of food. When ever I told someone I was going on a Disney Cruise, they would say, “No dieting on a cruise ship! You can eat 24 hours if you want! Make sure you get your fill!” And, of course, a Disney Cruise provides exactly that. Thus, this article is NOT about making wise food choices, but all about making DARING food choices!

The Disney Cruise Line Fantasy; what can I say? I am in love with this ship! It is a Disney Fantasy cruise experience. When I sailed on The Disney Dream I thought she was the most amazing ship ever; a Dream Cruise. How could Disney Cruise Line imagineers plus that? I was filled with anticipation to see the different things that Disney did to re-imagine what I perceived as the perfect cruise experience I had on the Dream. Disney imagineers are all about creating themed experiences, and all I could imagine was if they made the Dream ship a Dream cruise, what absolute Disney fantasy I would experience on the Disney Fantasy. I was not disappointed, by any means. After all the Disney vacation experiences I have had, I still found myself with the jaw dropping awe, as I explored the Disney Fantasy. So, what impressed me most? That would be a tough question, because I found myself saying several times, “I think this is my favorite part of the ship.” Here are a couple of Disney Fantasy additions that impressed me.
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.
Whether you live in a temperate region or a chilly one, summer is only 4 months away! 134 days proper, give or take a few! Vacation dreams invade our every thought as we sweat away our winter fluff at the gym, trying to fit back into those warm weather clothes. Well, imagine this while you walk that treadmill: The quiet slap of waves, the smell of salt water in the air, starry nights as far as the eye can see without a single streetlight to break the spell. THIS is the magic of a Disney Cruise Line Vacation!
When we started thinking about a vacation two years ago, my husband and I were leaning toward a cruise on the Disney Cruise Line. We are serious Disney people and after over 25 trips to the parks, we wanted to try something different. At the time, my twin boys would be celebrating their 19th birthday on the ship.
We sat down at the dinner table to let them know that we were leaning in the cruise direction, thinking, of course, that they would be ecstatic at the idea. We couldn’t have been more wrong! They were very unhappy. The first thing out of their mouth was “you’re wasting our Disney money”!
