Disney Cruise Line Adventures in Key West

When you think of Key West, Florida, what comes to your mind? Turquoise water, world-class fishing, colorful culture, interesting history, delicious key lime pie, amazing sunsets…? The list of what this tropical paradise is known for could go on and on.

With the addition of Galveston, Texas, and Miami as new homeports, Disney Cruise Line is returning to the vibrant city of Key West on select Western Caribbean and Bahamas sailings.

Here are just a few ways you can explore the southernmost city in the continental U.S.:

Trolley, Train and Bike Tours

Sit back and relax on the Old Town Trolley or Conch Train Tour or get a little exercise on the Key Lime Island Bike Tour.

Disney Fantasy Moves a Step Closer to Reality with Final Building Block in Place

disney_fantasy_83555_orig-640x497The final building block for the newest Disney Cruise Line ship, the Disney Fantasy, was put into place on Sept. 3, 2011, at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg. Signaling completion of a major milestone in the ship’s overall construction, the final block was a 260-ton portion of the ship’s bow, complete with the signature Disney Cruise Line golden filigree.

Once all 80 building blocks of the Disney Fantasy are in place, the focus shifts to outfitting the interior spaces that include the whimsical children’s spaces, dynamic adult venues, spectacular restaurants and elaborate theaters.

Sister ship to the Disney Dream which entered service in January 2011, the Disney Fantasy will feature new design elements and guest experiences that give the ship an identity all its own, including:

  • “Animation Magic” dinner show that celebrates the magic of Disney animation and allows families to create characters that “come alive” and interact with classic Disney characters in animated films.
  • Europa — a nighttime entertainment district exclusively for adults with sophisticated bars and trendy lounges inspired by European travel.
  • Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique salon, where aspiring young princesses and pirates receive the full fairy tale treatment with pixie-dusted and pirate makeovers.
  • New main stage entertainment at the 1,340-seat Walt Disney Theatre, including “Disney’s Aladdin — A Musical Spectacular” — a Broadway-style production featuring the cast from the classic animated Disney film “Aladdin.”

The 4,000-passenger Disney Fantasy will sail week-long Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral, Fla., with its maiden voyage scheduled for March 31, 2012.
