The Disney Fantasy cruise ship is now officially launched and is running regular seven-day cruises out of Port Canaveral. We were invited on a three-day preview cruise to Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. Here are some of the interesting things we noticed and some of our best photos. Our full photo gallery is at the bottom. Be sure to look for our other post featuring all our videos from the cruise.
Disney Imagineers aren’t just happy with adding a prop to the Europa adult nightlife area. When you sit down and put your foot down, you’ll hear the sound of a real Vespa motor running. Also notice the license plate number. You’ll see the 688 different places around the ship. It’s the yard number where the ship was built.
I found it interesting that during the musical stage shows, many characters had mouths that moved and eyes that open and shut. The characters I saw on in the shows don’t do that when at Walt Disney World. But Mickey does at Disney World, but didn’t in the shows on the ship.
There were a lot of cute moments to be seen with kids meeting Disney characters. This particular little girl was seen just about every night in similar outfits as the characters. You’ll see her again … (On her wrist is a wristband used as a safety device for kids onboard.)
You can see more about the Muppets Midship Detective agency game in our video, but my favorite part was finding Pepe the King Prawn’s stateroom door.
A few times during our cruise, we passed by the Disney Dream, sister ship to the Fantasy. Click Here to see our video of the Fantasy blowing her many horns at the Dream.
