Disney Fantasy-We Want to Go Back!


We just returned from a week on the Disney Fantasy. You know the Disney commercials where they sing-It’s The Time of Your Lives-that sums up being on a Disney Cruise perfectly!

The Magic Begins Before You Even Step onto the Ship!


We were so ready for this cruise. We booked the Disney Fantasy five weeks prior to departure date. It was me, my mom and of course Julia! As Florida residents we were able to get an amazing deal.

We live an hour away from Port Canaveral, but we decided to make it easy on ourselves, and we headed down the night before. We stayed at a Residence Inn which was literally 5 minutes from the Disney Cruise. We did a ride and park package where we parked our car at the resort, and then hopped on a bus that took us and our luggage to the Disney Fantasy!


We had a boarding time of 11:45. So we checked in, and got a number. The number would be called when it was our time to actually go on.

Read Your Navigator!

At check in they handed us a Navigaor which is basically a daily newsletter that tells guests everything that is going on on the cruise for the day. I skimmed it, and immediately saw an Anna and Elsa Meet and Greet. They were handing out passes, and the numbers would be limited for upcoming times to meet Anna and Elsa. Guess what the first thing was that we did on the cruise? We went to get our passes. We all went. Although only one of us was needed. The pass allowed all guests on your Key to the World Card to gain entrance into the Meet and Greet Time.


Trust me I know there is so much to see while in the terminal before even boarding. But many guests managed to miss reading about picking up passes to the Anna and Elsa Meet and Greet. Take a minute to at least skim it after you are all check in just to make sure there isn’t anything you will miss out on.

So Much to Do and See!

There is so much going on that first day-that first hour it was hard to figure out what to do first. The rooms would not be ready for at least an hour so we had lunch in the Enchanted Garden!



Sail Away Party!

Make sure you don’t miss the Sail Away Party! Again, read the Navigator-it will tell you what time you should be prepared to party and sail away!



This post is just to give you a taste of what we experienced on our magical cruise. In my upcoming posts I will be writing about:




Oceaneer’s Lab/Club!


The Pirates League & Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique!



Ports of Call & Castaway Cay!



Entertainment and Character Meet & Greets!
