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

We took our son, daughter-in-law, and two granddaughters (age 3 & 5). The first night we were on our way to a meet and greet when we ran into Minnie Mouse. She gave the 3 year old a big hug and a kiss on the cheek. Her reaction was ... Read more

This was our 3rd Disney cruise and 2nd on the Disney Dream. I have been on over 20 cruises with different lines and still feel that Disney offers the best cruise experience for families with younger children(3-12). Once you get into the ... Read more

What a beautiful ship-it's Disney! Embrakation was seamless-welcome announcement was a delight-BAM there were the Disney characters in all their glory. This is kids only experience so adults don't look a casino-there a few lounges-adult ... Read more

We booked a Disney cruise after speaking to several people that have taken them and after reading reviews. We booked a 1 bedroom concierge suite which was great but not worth the extra charge. Checkin at Port Canaveral was at the ... 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

My wife and I choose to cruise again this month after most spring breaks and before the summer crush. The weather the first night caused some rough seas, but it was great the rest of the cruise. We had a nice day in Nassau, not too hot ... Read more

We took two of our grandchildren (ages 9 and 11) and mom on a four day, three night cruise to Nassau and Castaway Cay. We didn't use any of the Disney child care as the trip was so short and we had plans off ship. The kids had a ball. ... 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
