Disney Fantasy Cruise ~ Exploring the boat

Here are a few things we saw around the boat on the first day. It's crazy the details they thought of in these different sections of the ship. We started in the kids playroom called "Oceaneer Club & Oceaneer Lab". It was opened for adults on the first day but then kids 3 - 10 only with Mickey wristbands. So, it was time for us to be kids... literally. So much fun! 

 Lost the hubs for a while.... (long while). He stayed in the game room. lol!

A picture with character Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc. and Jim.

Well, if you are wondering what my friend Melissa is doing on the floor, she's trying to capture a good picture of the ceiling lights. They were so pretty. All kinds of character. The next picture is a pretty decent representation of what we were seeing. Go Meliss, lol!

This is it. It illuminated the whole area. Several characters. This is a great shot of Disney fairy "Tinker Bell".

Yup! I found the princess closet. Everything was way too small but you get the picture..

This is "Andy's Room" from Toy Story. Where all of Andy's toys were kept and where all their stories began. Very cool!

Throughout the Disney cruise, Melissa and I kept noticing the chandeliers. Most luxurious ceiling lights patterns. These pictures might not do it justice but they were colorful and gorgeous.

Atrium lobby!

Large Walt Disney area rug.

A big statue of Mademoiselle Minnie Mouse serving as a welcome guests as we entered the atrium lobby. She is considered "La piece de resistance".

Picture of "The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure".

We were the 15th cruise leaving Port Canaveral to sail on the Disney Fantasy. Picture below.

Right off the atrium is one of the 3 main dining venues, Royal Court. It's inspired by classic Disney films including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and The Beast, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. Here is one of the many hand-crafted mosaic tile wall murals in this restaurant.

Beautiful picture of Princess Snow White.

Our very first meal at Cabanas (below). Casual dining food court restaurant on Deck 11.

The AquaDuck water slide. A thrilling water coaster on Deck 12 which is 765 feet long. It goes up, down, around and off the side of the ship. Eek!

Back to the kids club area. Melissa found a BIG hat. 

The automatic hand washing machines station before entering the kids room.

The hubs got a real kick out of these machines! It washed his hands for like 25 seconds. Washed & rinsed!

A submarine inspired by one in "Finding Nemo" in the Oceaneer Club full of explorer pods and computer game stations.

Jim found a hat!

An area of the Oceaneer Club where I found those dresses for dress-up play.

I was surprised to see a water fountain, like the one below, inside the Enchanted Garden Restaurant. It's one of the main dining restaurants with decor modeled after the famous gardens of Versailles. It was magical!

A fancy piece of furniture.

Disney Fantasy Bon Voyage Lounge on the atrium level. Bon Voyage is a cute little bar where we relaxed while waiting for a show to start to just to hang out. They had a crazy expensive shot ~ $200.00 for a 2oz pour of Remy Martin Louis XIII Cognac!!!
