Disney Fantasy Overview / Planning Tools

The Disney Fantasy is the fourth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet and sailed her maiden voyage on March 31, 2012. A sister ship to the Disney Dream, the Disney Fantasy features an AquaDuck water coaster, magical children’s areas, world-class entertainment, delightful dining, retreats for adults and immersive experiences for guests of all ages with beloved Disney stories and characters.  This massive ship features 14 decks and has 1,250 staterooms.  As guests have come to expect from Disney Cruise Line, the newest ship combines state of the art technology with the elegance and grandeur of old-time ocean liners.  Every Disney Cruise Line ship has a signature character; the Fantasy is no different. The ship's atrium is home to a bronze statue of Mademoiselle Minnie Mouse. Keeping in line with the vintage travel theme seen around the ship, Minnie is dressed in fashions from the 1920s and 30s, complete with a parasol and steamer trunk.

The Disney Fantasy sailing out of Port Canaveral, FL on the popular seven-night Caribbean itineraries – alternating eastern and western – including a stop at Disney’s private island in the Bahamas, Castaway Cay.

Disney Fantasy Ship Details:

  • Passenger Capacity: 4,000 | Gross Tonnage: 128,000 tons
  • Length: 1,115 feet | Beam: 125 feet | Draft: 26 feet

Disney Fantasy Staterooms

These staterooms are designed especially for the needs of families. An exciting new feature for inside staterooms is the addition of virtual portholes! These High Definition "portholes" have a 24-hour view of the ocean brought to you by a Hi-Def camera mounted outside the ship. Look closely - you may even see some of your favorite Disney characters float by!

Popular features from the classic ships are also available, like private verandahs, portholes with built-in seating and elegant Art Deco decor


Restaurants

Animator's Palate

The popular Animator's Palate restaurant is on this ship as well, but a new twist as been added. An interactive dinner show called Animation Magic involves the guests in the animation shown during the meal. Guests are invited to draw characters in a template on their placemats when they first come into the restaurant; servers will collect the completed drawings, which later show up as animation on screens around the room. The guests' names are shown in the credits and and you will later receive your drawings back with a special animator's stamp added. The show uses special Disney-created software to bring the drawings to life, along with a brand-new musical score and never-before-scenes from Disney films.

In addition to Animation Magic, Undersea Magic will also be shown during one of the other nights. Undersea Magic was new on the Disney Dream and features Crush from "Finding Nemo".  Crush swims around the room on screens, interacting with diners and talking about his world under the sea.

Royal Court

This restaurant serves French-inspired, continental cuisine and is inspired by the classic Disney films Cinderella, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty. Designed to look like a palace, some of the features include a whimsical chandelier, lighting fixtures made to look like Cinderella's Carriage, mosaic tile murals of the princesses and hidden images of glass slippers, apples, roses and tiaras. Royal Court is a new restaurant for the Disney Fantasy.

Enchanted Garden

Enchanted Garden serves breakfast, lunch and dinner as a Main Dining restaurant. During the daytime meals, the ceiling is a bright blue sky.  For the evening meal, the Enchanted Garden transforms itself from day to night with a starry sky full of constellations. The decor is made to feel like you are eating in the famous gardens of Versailles, France. You are surrounded by white trellises, arches and landscape artwork.  Lighting becomes part of the artwork, with the fixtures designed like glass flowers and light posts lining the center aisle.  The glass flowers "bloom" at night and become colorful, as the rest of the gardens open as well.  The centerpiece is a seven-foot tall fountain with a Mickey Mouse statue in the center. 

Restaurants on the Fantasy include:



Entertainment


Stage Shows:
Like the other ships in the fleet, the Disney Fantasy offers Broadway-style stage shows at night. Two new shows are being performed. "Disney's Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular" is a musical comedy with many of the classic scenes and songs from the film that can also be seen at Disney California Adventure. At times, performers will be in the aisles of the theater, making guests feel like they're a part of the show. A new song, "To Be Free," is included and was written for the show by Alan Menken, who composed the original score. In addition to the two new shows, other productions offered are a Welcome Aboard show, "Disney's Believe", "Disney's Wishes" and a Farewell show.


Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique:

Themed "dress-up nights" have always been popular on the Disney ships, so Disney Cruise Line is making things a little easier for guests on the Fantasy. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is available for makeovers, including hair, makeup, nails and costumes. Exclusive Disney Cruise Line packages are available, allowing guests to transform into Captain Mickey Mouse, Princess Minnie Mouse, and First Mate Minnie Mouse. For the pirate nights, the Boutique becomes the Pirate's League, offering such pirate garb as makeup, swords, earrings and eye patches. A $10 cancellation fee will be applied for no-shows or failure to cancel 24 hours before the appointment.

Adults Only:

Europa is the nighttime entertainment district on the Fantasy, located on Deck 4, Aft. Exclusively for guests age 18 and up, Europa is the place to be in the evening, offering guests the chance to "travel" through the clubs and lounges of Europe!

One night during each cruise, guests will experience an international street party - "Viva Europa!" Singers, dancers and interactive performers will move through the 5 clubs, bringing the entertainment to a whole new level.

  • La Piazza is a lounge inspired by the cities of Italy and their famous outdoor plazas. The bar here takes center stage - it's modeled after a vintage carousel and is surrounded by colorful Venetian masks. A Vespa (complete with sidecar) and intimate booths add to the feeling that you're spending a romantic evening in Italy. La Piazza serves Italian favorites like sparkling Prosecco, Moretti Peroni beer, red and white wines, grappa, and limoncello.
  • O'Gill's Pub features classic Irish neighborhood pub decor and dark wood accented in brass. This is the place to be when the game's on - HD TVs will be broadcasting live sporting events. O'Gills serves up Irish classics, but with a Fantasy twist - their own private label Irish Cream and vintage Irish whisky.
  • Ooh La La, the ship's champagne bar, will remind guests of a French boudoir, complete with Victorian furniture, velvet-tufted walls, and mirrors. The bar, designed to look like a sparking jewel box, serves the Fantasy's private label - Ooh La La Champagne by Taittinger.
  • The Tube dance club is like stepping into the London transportation system. Floors are covered with route maps, the bar is inspired by Big Ben, and there's even a photo op with one of four red English phone booths. The illuminated dance floor features a Union Jack flag. The Tube offers two live shows for their guests. "Pop!" will test guests' trivia knowledge about pop culture and "London Rocks!" brings English rock and roll to life with dancers, singers and audience participation. Drinks served here include the 1863 (the year London's Tube opened) with vanilla vodka and Imperial English Breakfast Tea.
  • Skyline has a chic penthouse feel and offers panoramic views of European skylines as they transform from day to night. From your seat, take in the views of St. Petersburg, Russia; Athens, Greece; Florence, Italy; Budapest, Hungary; Paris; London and Barcelona. As the skyline changes, so does the music, the art and the menu! Signature cocktails, inspired by the city of the day, are offered here. Because of its popularity on the Dream, Skyline on the Fantasy is one third bigger than its predecessor.

Meridian Bar is located on Deck 12 located between Palo and Remy. Enjoy a pre or post dinner cocktail in this adults only bar. The decor is inspired by the golden age of sea travel. A sextant navigational tool is embedded on the floor, the booths are decorated with buckles like old luggage and the walls are covered with leather maps and passport stamps.




Recreation

Pools and Water Features:

Just like on the Disney Dream, the AquaDuck water coaster is 250 yards of transparent tubing that sends you twisting and turning over the top decks and out over the sea. This coaster is 765 feet long and features a 4 deck drop. Riders must be 42" tall to ride with someone else, 54" to ride alone. If a rider is under 7 years old, they must ride with someone 14 years of age or older.

The 1,800-square-foot AquaLab water play area on Deck 12 is filled with water pop jets, geysers and bubblers, perfect to keep the whole family cool. Just as Disney does with all their attractions, there is a story to how the AquaLab came to be. Huey, Dewey and Louie, Donald Duck's nephews, created the AquaLab, but it's up to young cruisers to operate the AquaLab to keep the AquaDuck up and running for the other guests! At three different stations, there are wheels to turn and levers to pull, "controlling" the speed and temperature of the AquaDuck water coaster.  One leaky wall invites kids to cover squirting holes and pipes, soaking themselves in the process.  The Ducky Dinghy leaks water from overhead.


AquaLab isn't the only new water feature to be found on the Disney Fantasy. On Deck 12 Forward, a canopy shades a fountain surrounded by plenty of lounge chairs for relaxing near the water. Satellite Falls, an adults-only area on Deck 13 Forward, includes a circular splash pool with benches and a cascading rain curtain.

Muppets Adventure Game:

This interactive adventure game involving the Muppets is new for the Fantasy. The ship is filled with "Enchanted Art" and technology designed to bring the guest into the story. "The Case of the Stolen Show" leads guests around the ship in search of clues to solve a mystery. In this adventure, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo and Animal are planning a big stage show, but they discover that their props are missing. Guests will use a map and special game card to check out pieces of the Enchanted Art to find clues and uncover the whereabouts of the missing props. Guests will even find a Muppets message board and a Muppet-sized stateroom door on board, containing clues to help solve the crime before curtain time for the big show. This game, designed for ages nine and up, is self-paced and can be played over and over, as events and endings will change each time.
