The Disney Fantasy Part 2

 *Don’t forget registration for the WDW marathon weekend opens today (at 12:00 eastern) contact me for more info, I am working on a special discounted room block for the event! We may even have a special dessert party!

If you missed it, yesterday I did TWO posts. The second post was very important to me…it was my application for the Hood to Coast relay team with Nuun! I would LOVE your support on the post by comments, or writing on Nuun’s Facebook page saying they need me, Running With Sass on their team. I would SO appreciate your support!

Hood to coast application

As promised, here is my once a week post about the Disney Fantasy. My first update can be found on Disney Fantasy Part 1, and it contains photos of boarding the ship and my stateroom.

We got to tour the kids clubs the day we got on board the ship. I of course don’t have children yet…but is it bad that I wanted to stay and play in the kids clubs?!?

The nursery has food provided for your children, and you can “book” hours online or when you get to the port and check in for your cruise (or while onboard.)

The cafeteria connects the Oceaneer’s club to the Oceaneer’s Lab. Oceaneer’s Lab is also 3-12, but was geared more towards the older kids in that age range.

This was way cool…you can “drive” the ship on your screen!

You can use the wave phones in your stateroom (like cell phones) and that is how the clubs get in touch with you should your child need you for any reason. The kids also wear special bracelets at all times.

Then we headed up to the older teen’s hangout. Vibe. Vibe is for older teens, Edge is for younger teens. I didn’t make it to Edge but here are some photos of vibe. Can I hang out?

They even have their own outside sun deck area

So, if you had any reservations at all about your kids not liking the kids club, or there not being enough for them to do…worry no more! These clubs are awesome! I wish there were things around like this when I was a kid. We were given a box and told to make a fort with it…and we loved it, am I right? Haha!

One thing I really liked was the number of counselors in each club. There were PLENTY of workers all over to keep an eye on things, not like 1-2 per club. I imagine this would make me feel better about leaving my (hypothetical) child there!

Remember, if I book your Disney cruise for you, it does not cost you anything extra to book with me, and I can get you onboard credit. I have been on four DCL cruises and am about to go on my fifth, so I consider myself knowledgeable on all the ships (I have been on them all now.) Please e mail me at heather@travelwiththemagic.com for a quote.

QOTD: What was your favorite thing to do for fun as a kid? I loved playing basketball outside and I loved playing with Barbies.

*Only a couple of days left to vote for me for the fitness magazine best running blog. You can only vote for me once, so I would LOVE it if you took a second and voted for me!

    Very nice! We’ll all have to take a cruise one day and take our “hypothetical” children along with us. Do our husbands count as our children for the time being? I think mine qualifies!! 😀
    Oh yes, and I loved playing with Barbies and My Little Pony!

    I loved playing with my American Girls dolls and reading and writing.

    Those kids clubs look amazing! I would have loved that when I was a kid. I remember wanting to go on a cruise so bad when I was little because I heard about “Carnival Camp” or whatever from a friend who went, what a great way to meet new friends on vacation too. And I’m totally envious of all the Disney princess dress-up clothes in there too!

    Also… it’s neat that Disney has a nursery onboard. I don’t think the cruises I took had that… I think the ages started at 3 or so. I bet that’s a great selling point for Disney to have a nursery.
