Ahoy, fellow cruisers!

Our fantasy comes true as we sail the Disney Fantasy ... and you can follow along on our cruise adventures through the photos, videos, and reviews linked here. Check back frequently, as this page changes often.

Wondering if our award-winning guidebook to the Disney Cruise Line and its ports of call will contain information on the Disney Fantasy? Yes -- in fact, our current edition already covers both the Dream AND Fantasy, and our next edition due out in a few months will have firsthand information and photos on the Fantasy.


We also have several PassPorter e-books that cover the Disney Cruise Line, including PassPorter's Cruise Clues, PassPorter's Answer Book, and PassPorter's Disney Character Yearbook, and PassPorter's Disney Weddings & Honeymoons, all of which are available through the PassPorter Store or our all-you-can-read PassPorter's Club.

May all your fantasies come true,
PassPorter Founders/Authors

Recent Disney Fantasy News:
"Disney Cruise Line is celebrating the holidays on all four of its ships between now and the New Year. There will be a tree-lighting ceremony in The Atrium on the first night of each cruise, a Winter Wonderland Ball in the Atrium that features Santa and Mrs. Claus and magical snowfall, as well as Holiday Carolers throughout the cruise."

       DREAM TIP
Learn to Love Late Dining
"Don't be afraid of the late seating for dinner on the Disney cruises. Even if it is later than your family normally eats dinner, you don't have to worry that everyone will be too hungry. There are several other options on board so grab a few chicken fingers around 5:00 or so and it'll tide you over! The benefits are: you can stay in the pools longer than those having to go back and change for dinner, you can stay at the ports of call longer on occasion if the boarding time is later than the early dining time, you can enjoy the early show and it'll keep you and the kids occupied until dinner, and if you your kiddos want to eat quickly and go to the kids clubs while you enjoy your dinner, there is a cast member that comes to pick up kiddos part way through dinner so you can combine family meal with date night all in one seating!"
