Disney Vacation Guide to Disney Fantasy’s AquaDuck

While there was lots of hoopla around the christening of the newest member of the cruise ship fleet for Disney Cruise Line, Disney Fantasy, the fun is what it’s all about. And given that the ship was blessed by Grammy Award winner and official godmother Mariah Carey, it’s time to take the plunge down the AquaDuck, an exhilarating flume ride where  water blasters funnel guests through tubes around the perimeter of the ship’s top deck - watch our video below.

The Water Coaster

The first water coaster at sea was the big news when the Disney Dream launched, and because it was so popular among guests, it’s back again with the Fantasy. From afar, the clear tubes of the AquaDuck rise above the upper decks of the cruise ship, like a translucent sea monster. The 765-foot long tubes, some transparent, coil and bend as they drop, turn and propel you toward a wet exit!

AquaLab

If you don’t want to take the big plunge, there are other ways to get wet on the Fantasy, especially for families. The big debut for the Fantasy sailing excursion is the fanciful and imaginative water play area, AquaLab. Located on the upper deck, the 1,800-square-foot space is full of of water “experiments” that will drench you. Squirting walls and falling water will have you dripping wet while pop jets, bubblers and geysers, will give you hours of wet fun. There’s also a gentle splish-splash area for small children and separate pools for families and adults.
