On the 31st March 2012 Disney Fantasy will begin her maiden voyage and will sail out of Port Canaveral on seven-night Western and Eastern Caribbean itineraries. This is the fourth cruise ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet. Disney Fantasy features 14 decks, 1,250 staterooms and can accommodate 4,000 passengers and over 1450 Cast and Crew Members. Other great features include a new interactive dinner show called Animation Magic, princess-and-pirate salon and two new theatre productions.
Animation Magic is a great new diner show were passengers are asked to participate in the entertainment on a different scale. Once seated the passengers will be asked to draw their own characters on the placemats provided, the placemats are then collected by the staff. After dinner Mickey turns up with the placemat drawings, which have been brought to life for the interactive show. After the show the placemats are returned to the passengers with a special animator stamp.
Senior vice president for creative at Walt Disney Imagineering Joe Lanzisero said, “Everyone is guaranteed that moment of seeing there art come to life.”
Disney Fantasy will have its own signature Broadway-style stage shows just like the other ships in the Disney fleet. One of the fantastic shows will be “Disney’s Aladdin A Musical Spectacular.”
On every Disney ship there is always a Disney character in the grand atrium that represents the ship. Mickey mouse is on Disney Magic, Ariel is on Disney Wonder and Donald Duck is on Disney Dream. So who is going to represent the Disney Fantasy? It has to be the fantastic Minnie Mouse. Minnie’s statue is gong to be cast in bronze and dressed in vintage fashion along with a parasol and luggage at her side.
