Fantasy Takes Shape


The Muppets will make their debut aboard DISNEY CRUISE LINE when the new Disney Fantasy makes its debut next March.


T


he popular TV and film stars will feature in a new onboard adventure game called The Case Of The Stolen


Show, which will be an interactive quest around the 128,000-ton ship to uncover ‘evidence’ and pieces of Disney’s trademark ‘Enchanted Art.’ The self-paced game starts with a special film introduction from Kermit and Co and requires guests to find the missing Muppet bric-a-brac from the show and solve the ‘crime’ perpetuated by a missing thief, using unique game cards and maps. Enchanted Art – which made its debut


on this year’s Disney Dream – looks like other hanging art pieces around the ship but is actually a framed LCD screen that uses technology to create special visual effects. Enchanted Art “recognises” a guest is present and activates several seconds of animation. Guests may see new and different animation when they visit the Enchanted Art another time. Another new feature on the Fantasy will


be in the Animator’s Palate restaurant, which will stage a completely different show called Animation Magic. Instead of the Finding Nemo theme on board the Dream, this will be a dinner-show that invites guests to take part and become ‘animators’ in their own right. All the artwork is then incorporated

into the show with a ‘parade’ of drawings being taken by Mickey through various well-known animated film scenes, which should be another real highlight for Disney’s ship designers. The 2,500-passenger ship will also boast the signature ‘Water-coaster’ ride atop the pool deck of her sister vessel while other original touches on the latest vessel include the ‘Magical Porthole’ for inside cabins (a real-time virtual reality window on the outside world); Skyline Bar, wit its ever-changing backdrop of well-known cityscapes; Oceaneer Club and Lab for children, including new features like Living Characters and Magic Playfloor; and the AquaLab outdoor water-play area, featuring new elements like Donald Duck’s Dinghy.


New entertainment will include


Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular in the main theatre and the Bibbidi- Bobbidi Boutique and Pirate’s League centre, where children (and even some grown-ups!) can be transformed into the princess or Pirate of their choice for themed nights.


Another change from Fantasy will be


the Royal Court restaurant instead of Enchanted Garden. Inspired by classic films Snow White, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty, it features a fairytale background for Disney’s unique rotational dining system, where guests have dinner in a different restaurant each evening. Fantasy will operate alternating 7-day


voyages to the east and west Caribbean year-round from its base in Port Canaveral, Florida. Disney have also announced new 2012 itineraries featuring New York, Canada and New England.
