The beginning of the month we were invited onboard the Disney Fantasy to tour the ship. We were able to see the staterooms, restaurants, public spaces. We were given 3 and a half hours and we didn’t think it was enough time to tour this massive ship with 14 decks with a length of 1,115 feet and a maximum width of 125 feet!
This 130,000-ton ship when at capacity comfortably accommodates 4,000 passengers—along with the over 1,450 Cast and Crew Members is breathtaking. The 3-deck atrium lobby welcomes all of its guests with a huge chandelier and Mademoiselle Minnie Mouse. You are immediately transported back to the 1920s and 1930s as you gaze upon the grand piano and marble and stone inlay floor with fluted columns raising from the floor to the ceilings.
Just off of the lobby atrium you will find… SHOPPING! Mickey’s Mainsail, Sea Treasures, and Whitecaps is where you will find everything from pirate and princess costumes, Disney Cruise Line Merchandise, jewelery, and toiletries.
Continuing moving forward through the ship, you will find Walt Disney Theater. Here you will be treated nightly to amazing entertainment, including Disney themed Broadway style shows.
Passing back through the shopping area heading towards the midship elevators, you’ll pass by a great spot for pictures…
And even a place to grab a drink and unwind a bit too!
If you take the midship elevators down to deck 2, you will Find Enchanted Garden. Check out the ceilings here, as the day progresses, the restaurant’s ceiling changes from sunrise to sunset to twinkling stars! It truly captures the beautiful gardens of Versailles setting. Here, we suggest you start your dinner with the Ahi Tuna and Avacado Tower followed by either the Mushroom Glazed Portobello or the Pan Seared Sea Bass.
If you take the midship elevators back up tp deck 3, you will find Royal Court just behind Minnie just off the Atrium Lobby. This restaurant is truly fit for royalty with its elegant setting. We highly suggest The Royal Court Aged Angus Grilled Beef Tenderloin and Lobster Tail for dinner followed by the Tahitian Vanilla Creme Brule.
To get o the rest of deck 3 gets a little complicated but worth it! You will need to travel to decks 4 or 5 and walk to the aft to take the elevators there down to deck 3. Once you are there, you will find a Disney Cruise line Fan Favorite, Animator’s Palate. Here you will have dinner with Crush one night (as those who have sailed on the Dream are familiar with) and on another night you can actually watch your own animation come to life on screen! This special interactive experience is exclusive to Disney Cruise Line- you are given a special place mat that is collected and while you are dining your creation comes to life and performs for you and the rest of the guests during dinner! We HIGHLY suggest ending your dinner with their Mini Lava Cake for dessert you might even want to ask for seconds!
Can you just imagine what will be found on deck 4? What about the staterooms? Kids Club? Nursery? Stay tuned…
