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

       DREAM TIP
DCL Character Tip
"We sailed on the Disney Fantasy over Christmas week. As the ship was full, character meet and greet lines could get long. We quickly discovered that lines were set up for meet and greets outside the Walt Disney Theater after the evening shows. By leaving the theater during the final applause and curtain call, we were able to be first or second in line for the character meet and greet. After a couple minutes in line, the character would appear just as the crowd was streaming out of the theater. Rather than rushing and jostling to get in line, we were already having photos taken. To take advantage of this opportunity, sit at the end of a row at least half way back in the theater. There are no bad seats in the theater, and your position will allow for the hasty early exit. "
