Disney Fantasy Enhancements Revealed

When the Disney Fantasy emerges from her 18-day dry dock on May 17, 2017, she’ll have a brand new, extra cost ice cream and treats shop, a legendary jewelry emporium, and super-heroic play zones in the kids clubs. The new Sweet on You shop will be on deck 11 by Mickey’s Pool, no doubt replacing the cruise line’s last remaining arcade. We expect Tiffany & Co. will set its sales on deck 4, in place of Vista Gallery. Finally, Star Wars: Command Post and Marvel Super Hero Academy will bring new, high-tech play to the Oceaneer Club.<

Disney Cruisers Can Now Reserve Two Palo or Remy Dinners

Posted by: PassPorter News   03/08/2017

Image of Palo brunch contributed by chezp from the PassPorter Photo Archive

Disney cruisers can now reserve up to two Palo or Remy dinners online, pre-cruise! The catch (if you consider it one), is that one of those two meals has to be on the first night of the cruise. The online reservation system now has an option for first night dinner at Palo or Remy (sorry, not both!), and separate options for the other nights of the cruise, as well as Palo and/or Remy brunch, if available. That adds up to three dinners total, if both Palo and Remy are available (Palo is available on all four ships, Remy is available on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy).
