Disney Cruise Line Announces Plans for Its New Fantasy, Due Next Spring
(6:45 p.m. EDT) -- Disney Cruise Line has unveiled its design plans for the 4,000-passenger Disney Fantasy, which is scheduled for launch next spring.

While retaining many of the design elements of its sibling Disney Dream (including the AquaDuck, the semi-thrilling water coaster onboard), there are a few new elements:

"Animation Magic": The dinner show takes place in the Animator's Palate restaurant and features a salute to animation, starring Mickey Mouse himself. Expect a wide range of Disney icons to appear, via animation, and an homage to "Be Our Guest" from "Beauty and the Beast."

Europa: This adults-only entertainment district will include bars and lounges and give off a European vibe. Venues include O'Gill's Pub, an Irish bar, and Skyline, which will provide bird's-eye views of European capitals.

"Disney's Aladdin -- A Musical Spectacular": Rub the lamp, and poof -- new stage entertainment appears. This Broadway-style show will occupy the 1,340-seat Walt Disney Theatre.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique: The theme park stalwart makes the leap to the high seas. Kids can be transformed into princesses and pirates, courtesy of a staff keen on giving wee ones the royal treatment.
