From the Shipyard: Disney Fantasy vs. Disney Dream

What’s the difference between building the Disney Fantasy and the Disney Dream?

I caught up with Frank de Heer, VP of New Ship Development for Disney Cruise Line, and Philip Gennotte at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, to get their thoughts during construction of the new ship.

Check out this video to hear what they had to say and get a behind-the-scenes look at how the Disney Fantasy is coming along.

Look for more updates in the coming weeks and months. So tell me, who’s planning on sailing with us on the Disney Fantasy next year?

Check out additional updates we’ve shared on the Disney Parks Blog about the Disney Fantasy:


  • Wasn’t that impressed. Wonder and Magic seemed better to me. Pools too small, not that much for adults to do. Aquaduck was amazing but you need a FastPass and “wave” phones were a plus.

  • Not the maiden voyage but in June and can’t wait!

  • We booked our next DIsney cruise while we were on board the Disney Magic last week in St. Thomas for the brand new Disney Fantasy…
