Of course, seeing such luminaries as Ty Pennington, Jerry Seinfeld and Mayor Bloomberg was amazing. And in keeping with maritime tradition, the dazzling Mariah Carey is the ship’s official godmother and christened her with bubbly!
What truly made an impression on me was the beauty of the Disney Fantasy against the wintry backdrop of New York’s skyline. I was breathless when I first arrived at the pier. I walked over the gang plank and into the atrium to the gorgeous art nouveau lobby and front and center I saw the ship’s welcoming statue, “Mademoiselle Minnie.”
In keeping with our own maritime tradition, we debuted earlier this year Nancy Walshe, one of the newest members of the Walt Disney World Moms Panel and a Disney Cruise Line Specialist Mom.
Whether you are traveling with kids of all ages, looking for tips while selecting an itinerary or picking which exhilarating Port Adventures to book, Nancy will help you get your vacation ship shape. A mother of two, Nancy sails on our fleet often and she knows the ins and outs to help make your Disney cruise magical.
“The first cruise that we took included three different generations and one of my favorite memories was watching the kids playing in the ocean with their grandparents on Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.” But Nancy feels that the ship is truly a destination in itself.
“I love that my kids always ask when they can go again even before we get off the ship!”
