Pool parties, pyrotechnics and pirates! Welcome to The Disney Fantasy’s Upper Decks
Disney Vacation Guide to the Upper Decks of the Disney Fantasy
Your family vacation aboard the Disney Fantasy starts the minute the ship leaves the dock with “Sailing Away,” a “welcome aboard” show where Minnie, Mickey and the rest of the Disney characters and crew welcome you until the ship’s horn lets out its grand finale, playing the first two lines of “When You Wish Upon a Star” and several measures from “Hi Diddle Dee Dee”, “It’s a Small World” and “Yo Ho.”
This send off party also gives guests an idea of the active outdoor family fun that takes place on the upper decks of the ship.
Disney Fantasy Upper Deck Highlights
Family-friendly swimming pools
Disney doesn’t overlook any details in its parks or on its ships. A great example of this, Donald’s Pool for families and Mickey’s Pool for little ones are very close to each other so everyone can have a splashing good time without being far apart from one another.
A whimsical play area for small sailors on the Disney Fantasy, Mickey’s Pool is shaped like Mickey’s famous head, with his face forming the main pool, and his ears forming two more shallow pools. The highlight of this childrens-only play area is a giant waterslide held up by an oversized version of Mickey’s hand.
If you’re all soaking wet but feel like chilling in front of a TV (hey, you’re on vacation!) then head straight to Donald’s pool. It’s the one with a massive, 18 foot by 30 foot wide LED screen!
Mickey’s Pirates IN the Caribbean
For one evening on each cruise, the Disney Fantasy transforms into a pirate ship in an event inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean. The fun starts with an interactive show at Donald’s Pool where guests are made part of the pirate crew in some swashbuckling fun musical numbers. Hunt for Jack Sparrow in a production that ends with a pirate showdown. Afterwards, watch the pyrotechnical Buccaneer Blast followed by “Club Pirate,” a family-friendly upper deck dance party for everyone.
Sports fans rejoice
At Goofy’s Sports Deck on Deck 13 there’s tons of activity happening for everyone in the family. Digital sports simulators offer virtual game experiences in rugby, hockey, golf, soccer, football, basketball and even baseball. Max’s Courts provide fun for little ones allowing them to play basketball or soccer at mini-sized sports courts! Teens will love the foosball tables and the table tennis. If you want to stick to your fitness regime while on the ship, take a few laps around the walking track!
Take a ride on the first water coaster at sea
Take a daring plunge down the AquaDuck, an exciting flume ride where water blasters funnel guests through clear tubes around the perimeter of the ship’s upper deck.
