Looking across the way….(while on a ship inspection) and what did I see…..

The Disney Fantasy!!!

The Disney Fantasy is the fourth ship in the expanding Disney cruise line, and was Christened on March 1, 2012. It is Disney Dreams sister ship.

Disney Fantasy also has the popular AquaDuck Water Coaster, the first Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at sea that will turn into the Pirates League on Mickey’s Pirates in the Caribbean Party Nights. The Nightclubs District is called Europa and features a re-imagined and expanded Skyline Club, The Tube, Le Plazza, O’Gills Pub and Ooh La La, an adults only lounge.

The shows in the Walt Disney Theater include Disney’s BelieveDisney Wishes, and Disney’s Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular.

She also sails from Port Canaveral, FL.

The ship will embark on alternating Eastern and Western 7 night Caribbean cruises, and will call on Disney’s private island Castaway Cay.

Disney’s Castaway Cay

Posted in DISNEY CRUISE LINE with tags on August 22, 2011 by disneychronicles

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again! I LOVE THIS PLACE!

Castaway Cay is officially one of my favorite places on Earth! 
I would take another cruise just to go there! I can honestly say this was the best part of the whole trip. The water is beautiful. There is something for everyone to do; water slides, palm trees to lay under, water bikes, stingrays, snorkeling, bicycles, massages cabanas, endless drinks and even places to eat.

 Disney makes everything easy for you, and the food, childcare, and beach experience is no exception. The new water slide was great, but you have to swim out and back about 50 yards to use it. Disney’s idea of a buffer, I guess. The entire operation was well supervised with life jackets for kids who were not great swimmers. The “Spring-a-Leak” water playground may not look like much to an adult (a series of spouting water), but every kid between 3-10 loved it. They also have a kids club, which features a “whale Dig” children dig for whalebones in the sand. As adults is was great to be able to relax at a beach knowing kids were engaged and safe. Which brings me to Serenity Bay, this is a adults only beach. The sand is white….the water a clear turquoise! It is beautiful and quiet! HEAVEN!
