Some of best memories from the first cruise included Castaway Cay. This private island was one place to have fun and we did it all there. At this time it was still fairly new and being developed so there was a lot to explore. But the snorkeling, swimming and just plain bumming around was the best on beautiful, white sand beaches.
OUR stateroom was great, although a little cramped. We were pretty high up and what a view from our verandah, we could see clear, blue ocean for miles and miles. The relaxing sound of the ocean was another huge benefit and being able to leave the balcony door open was so soothing to hear the waves.
The restaurants and food were great too. The Animator's Palate was our favorite, because throughout your meal, Disney character sketches located on the restaurant walls slowly transform from stark black and white to brilliant color, amid the familiar classic orchestral themes of Disney movies playing overhead. Another great perk we took advantage of was the room service. Everyday, our daughter liked to take naps, so we had room service deliver her favorite meal after her nap, it included chicken fingers, warm milk and a chocolate chip cookie.
This truly was a great Disney experience we hope to repeat very soon..
Please share your Disney Cruise experience or one you hope to have.. ~~~~~~

A sister ship to the Disney Dream that debuted in January this year, the Fantasy will feature many of the same elements of the Dream including the over-the-side Aqua Duck water slide, (which I can't wait to try, it looks so fun) but will have a different, more European flavor in the interior as well as new amenities for the cruise line.
A rendering of the bow of Fantasy was also released, featuring the Fantasia--Mickey Mouse is the centerpiece with wand and four stars in the background.
The ship is the fourth for Disney and set to make its maiden voyage March 21, 2012. It will sail out of Port Canaveral on seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries.
Disney Fantasy construction continues, bow design detail revealed
