We chose the Disney Dream because so many people had raved about the experience. Let me say that the customer service was exceptional from embarkation to debarkation. The cleanliness of the room and the cabin steward were excellent as ... Read more

My family and I was able to finally experience a Disney Cruise for a fraction of the price! We saved a total of $6,000 for two balcony rooms! We are a family of four adults and decided having two rooms would be best. We are Disney fanatics ... Read more

If you can get past the forced smiles and the pain when you walked by (if you were to engage a crew member), just ignore this and it was very nice. We preferred the sit down restaurant experience over the buffet situations on board and our ... Read more

This was our fifth disney cruise. It was of course wonderful. We haven't sailed on the Fantasy for a bit so I thought I would give my tips: 1) Don't bother with Remy or Palo. We liked Remy on our last cruise but I think upon reflection ... Read more

How could I, of all people, diss Disney? After all, I grew up with the Mickey Mouse Club. I’d have given anything to meet Annette Funicello. Later, we lived near Anaheim and visited Disneyland often. I’d have bought a home ... Read more
