Fantastic Features On Disney Fantasy

Disney Fantasy Details Released

Disney Cruise Line announced details of the latest ship, Disney Fantasy, which is currently under construction  by Meyer Werft shipyard.  It is the sister ship to Disney Dream which debuted this year.

Disney Fantasy will have some of the same features as the Disney Dream, such as the AquaDuck water coaster, Magical Portholes inside the staterooms and Enchanted Art throughout the ship.  There will be new design elements to give the new ship its own identity.

"Animation Magic" at Animator's Palate

For those of you who have sailed on a Disney ship before, Animator's Palate needs no introduction.  For those of you who have not, Disney Cruise Line takes dinner to a whole new dimension... with the scene changing as dinner progresses.

On Disney Fantasy, DCL takes things a step further.  "Animation Magic" will be a dinner show that celebrates the magic of Disney animation and allows families to participate in a unique new way.

Everyone will be a “guest animator,” as they will be invited to draw a character of their own using a simple template on their placemat. Later, these sketches will be revealed on several large screens along the walls to join in an animated sequence with beloved Disney characters. Check out this photo, courtesy of Disney Cruise Line, that illustrates some of the magic that will dazzle guests during their dining experience.

Guests 18 and older can escape and enjoy a collection of sophisticated bars and trendy lounges inspired by European travel. La Piazza is themed after Italian cities and their decorative outdoor plazas. Skyline is a chic bar that provides birds-eye views of stunning European city skylines that transform from day to night. O’Gill’s Pub is a rollicking Irish bar with modern day twists. Ooh La La is inspired by an elegant French boudoir adorned with velvet tufted walls. And finally, The Tube transports guests to a vibrant metropolitan club via the London Underground.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Young cruisers haven't been left out.  At this very special salon, aspiring young princesses and pirates receive the full fairy tale treatment with pixie-dusted and piratical makeovers. After making their royal entrance, young princesses-to-be are greeted by their very own Fairy Godmother-in-training, who will transform them with the most magical makeovers you can imagine.

And on pirate party nights aboard the Disney Fantasy, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique becomes a buccaneer’s dream – Pirate’s League, where we can help guests of all ages prepare for a swashbuckling evening with beards and bandanas, swords and scars, earrings and eye patches and more. If you like dressing up for the occasion, you arrrr going to love this place!

This is only a small sampling of what you can look forward to on the Disney Fantasy – Disney will be releasing more details and we'll bring you the information as that happens.   A special thank you to Disney Cruise Line for these artist renderings and for letting us take a sneak peak into the new ship.
