Inside the Disney Fantasy: Stage Spectaculars

posted on April 16th, 2012 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


“Hi-ho the me-ri-o, that’s the only way to be…” I haven’t been able to stop singing this song after seeing “Disney Wishes” aboard the Disney Fantasy. The number “I’ve Got No Strings” from “Pinocchio” is just one of the heart-pounding scenes I love in this brand-new original show.

Of course with a 7-night itinerary, “Disney Wishes” isn’t the only stage spectacular on the Disney Fantasy. But rather than tell you about the others, I’d rather just show you with another “Inside the Disney Fantasy” video from Assistant Cruise Director Natalie. Check it out…

An Exclusive Interview with Pepe the King Prawn About the Disney Fantasy

posted on April 12th, 2012 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


By now you’ve probably heard that the Muppets are starring in the new Midship Detective Agency game aboard the Disney Fantasy. It’s one of the favorite new guest experiences, so when we found out that one of the stars of the game, Pepe the King Prawn, was sailing, we sent investigative reporter John to catch up with him.

The interview started out a bit rocky after a miscommunication between Pepe and John, but they soon smoothed things over. Check out this video of John’s hilarious one-on-one interaction with the King Prawn himself…

Bon Voyage, Disney Fantasy

posted on April 3rd, 2012 by Rebecca Peddie, Manager, Public Affairs


The Disney Fantasy sailing by approximately 4,500 spectators, who were waving Mickey hands along the shoreline.

Members of the community gathered together at Jetty Park in Port Canaveral, Florida, on Saturday to wish the Disney Fantasy “Bon Voyage.” There was excitement in the air that erupted into cheers when the Disney Fantasy played “When You Wish Upon a Star” on its horn and began its way down the channel for its Maiden Voyage to the Western Caribbean.

Our new ship sailed by approximately 4,500 spectators, who were waving Mickey hands along the shoreline and at nearby restaurants, on its way out to sea. Disney Fantasy guests and beloved Disney characters onboard waved back.

Port Canaveral also hosted a similar event to welcome the Disney Dream last year, and many local families were able to attend both events and wave to both ships. Radio Disney and WLRQ FM 99.3 played music and hosted trivia contests.

We were even treated to a visit from Disney fan favorite Bonnie Voyage, who entertained the audience.

Nothing could dampen the spirits of our fans who were there to help us celebrate the newest addition to our fleet, not even a little rain.

posted on March 28th, 2012 by Jason Lasecki, Public Relations Director, Disney Cruise Line, Adventures By Disney, Disney Vacation Club


I got the chance to preview the brand-new play area on the Disney FantasyAquaLab – and it is just as fantastic as I imagined! Kids were splashing and squealing with delight, plugging leaky pipes and geysers, and enjoying the thrill of not knowing where the water would come from next!

In this video, Walt Disney Imagineer Peter Ricci shows us the ins and outs of this fanciful new water play area, including some of the hidden ways your kids might get soaked.

Take a look at more of the fun you can expect when sailing on the Disney Fantasy:

Samantha Brown Explores the Disney Fantasy Ship

posted on March 26th, 2012 by Ryan March, Editor, Disney Vacation Club’s Disney Files Magazine


If my calculations are correct (which my childhood math teachers would find remarkable), this is my tenth post on the Disney Parks Blog, and my third involving travel-television personality Samantha Brown.

The first two posts on my unofficial “Samantha Beat” spoke of her role in Disney Vacation Club online broadcasts filmed on the island of O‘ahu, and they included some offhanded quips (one bitter, one gleefully smug) about whether or not I was in Hawai‘i during the shoots. While I can report in this third Samantha-centric post that I was not on set for the latest shoot aboard the Disney Fantasy, my feelings on the subject are decidedly less bitter – and this show is fantastic!

Viewers can get a sneak peek at the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet and learn more about the wide range of experiences available through Disney Vacation Club by visiting www.dvcwebevent.com and registering for an available on-demand viewing date.
