Our Recent Disney Fantasy Cruise: The Final Day

My family and I recently sailed on the Disney Fantasy. It was our third Disney Cruise Line vacation, and the first since the industry opened up again. I thought I’d share some of our experiences with you, so that you can decide if now is the time for your Disney Cruise Line vacation.

Our final full day was at sea. Starting early in the afternoon, a video was available in our stateroom. Cruise Director Matthew explained what we needed to do and what to expect when we disembarked.

We were given a survey in our stateroom to let Disney Cruise Line know what we thought of our vacation. We gave high marks on just about everything. There was a spot to leave a compliment for any Crew Member who went above and beyond. That space wasn’t nearly big enough.

Our stateroom host left color and character coded luggage tags in our room. Anything we wouldn’t need overnight we placed in our luggage, and left the bags in the hall by 10:00 P.M. Anything not in the bags we needed to carry with us in the morning.

There was a character dance party on Deck 11, which was the last time to see all of the characters. After that was our final dinner.

In the morning, we had breakfast in the same restaurant that we had eaten in the night before. It was our last chance to see our serving team, and it was hard to say goodbye.

On our past cruises there was a bit of a wait to disembark, but by the time we finished breakfast all of the groups had been called. We left the ship, found our luggage, then went through Customs. There wasn’t even half an hour between leaving the Disney Fantasy and finding our car.

It is never easy when a vacation comes to an end, but somehow it’s even harder when you’re about to disembark from a Disney Cruise Line ship. Even with the changes in itinerary and extra safety measures, we had an incredible week.

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH, and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married, and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010, we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the Parks. Under the name Paula Brown, I penned the novels 'Dream Wanderers' and 'The Coffee Cruiser'. I also am a co-author of 'Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide'. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida.
