  • Trip Report Honeymooning on the Fantasy with MiceChatters (Oct 2013) + WDW

    As some of you know (because you were on the trip with us), Dave and I just got back from a fun Disney World trip, broken up in the middle with a voyage of board the Disney Fantasy. It was super fun! A great way to honeymoon. (What did you expect we would do for our honeymoon, after getting both engaged and married at Disneyland?)

    On Thursday, while several of the MiceChatters went to Universal Studios, we went to the Magic Kingdom to look at New Fantasyland and meet up with my parents. My impression of New Fantasyland: it's beautiful, but incomplete. I do not think they should have opened it (at least not the "Grand Opening") until it was DONE. Having the mine coaster still behind walls seemed like how it would have felt if they opened Cars Land with Radiator Springs Racers not ready yet.

    I'm not sure if Rapunzel's courtyard is officially part of New Fantasyland, but it sure is pretty!

        After dinner at Palo we wandered the ship a little since I was feeling better. We asked a nice fellow guest to take our picture in the atrium. The guests onboard were super nice (usually), compared to the indifferent you often get in the parks.

          One stop on the tour was Remy, to see all of the fun movie-inspired designs and theming. I was amused to see that Remy had their own designated iron, and that the "little chef" was even drawn on the iron.

          I continued to be a good Communicore Cadet, taking Bathroom Break photos for Jeff and George. There were some amazingly beautiful restrooms onboard ship.

            I tried to take a selfie with the sunset before our dinner at Remy. It didn't work, but the rest of the group had a great time laughing at us me.

            After dinner photo, with my Remy rose.

            One more bit of amazing service at Remy: when I got up to use the restroom, our waiter materialized at my elbow, unasked, and proceeded to escort me. Just because. I was blown away.

              the Champagne Catamaran Sail & Snorkel to St. John

              Our second port of call was St. Thomas. Once there, Dave and I joined my parents on a Catamaran Champagne Sail & Snorkel. We sailed out to Honeymoon Beach on St. John, set anchor a ways out from shore, and went out snorkeling. It was my first time snorkeling, and I had a blast. (Plus, the water was warm! Lovely change from Northern California.) We got to see lots of fish and a couple of sea turtles. Very cool.

                After we (sadly) returned to port, Dave and I spent a few more days in Walt Disney World. This time we stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, since Dave knew it was a dream of mine to stay there with a savannah view. YOU GUYS. THERE WERE GIRAFFES AND ZEBRAS AND PELICANS (oh my!) OUTSIDE MY WINDOW.

                Chip and Dale got a bit silly (well, sillier than usual) when they noticed our "Happily Ever After" buttons.

                  Great trip report! This was a wonderful cruise.

                  The Remy dinner was ridiculously good. I want to know how they managed to make breaded soup, which was still liquid within that outer crust.

                  The only time I found no line for the AquaDuck was after 11:00 on Pirates night. It was empty for that last hour. I wish they had kept it open that late every night.
