Today In Disney History ~ March 6th
Disney Fantasy is a cruise ship owned and operated by Disney Cruise Line, part of The Walt Disney Company, which entered service in 2012. The Disney Fantasy currently sails seven-night Eastern or Western Caribbean cruises. Her sister ship, Disney Dream, was launched in 2011. Disney Fantasy is the fourth ship in the cruise line, the other two ships being the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder.
Disney Fantasy, structurally, is almost identical to Disney Dream, with gross tonnage of 130,000, a length of 340 m (1,120 ft) and a width of 42 metres (138 ft). Disney Fantasy has 1,250 staterooms.
Additional features, such as on-board services and amenities, are mostly similar to those on Disney Dream. Disney Fantasy has included the popular AquaDuck, matching the one on the Dream, being the first water coaster at sea and also goes above the water. The Nightclub District, called Europa, features a re-imagined and expanded Skyline Club. The Tube, La Piazza, O’Gills Pub and Ooh La La are all new to the Fantasy. During the morning and afternoon hours, they accommodate both adult and family entertainment activities and become adult-only locations after 9:00 pm. The shows in the Walt Disney Theatre include Disney’s Believe, Disney Wishes, and Disney’s Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular. The Disney Fantasy also is home to five youth clubs. “It’s A Small World” nursery for ages 6 months-3 years, the Oceaneers Club and Oceaneers Lab is for ages 3-12 years old, Edge is for years 11-14, and Vibe for ages 14-17.
Disney Fantasy is based at Disney Cruise Line’s terminal at Port Canaveral, Florida. The ship will embark on alternating Eastern and Western 7 night Caribbean cruises and will call on Disney’s private island Castaway Cay.
Disney Fantasy’s horn plays songs from Disney movies and parks, specifically: “When You Wish Upon a Star” (Pinocchio), “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” (Cinderella), “Be Our Guest” (Beauty and the Beast), “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me)” (Pirates of the Caribbean), “Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee (An Actor’s Life for Me)” (Pinocchio) “Do you want to build a Snowman?” (Frozen) and “It’s a Small World.”
