Disney unveils some entertainment offerings for new ship

Disney unveils some entertainment offerings for new ship

By Donna Tunney
A handful of new entertainment options will debut on the Disney Fantasy, a 4,000-passenger ship under construction at Germany’s Meyer Werft shipyard.

Disney animation will expand into the ship's dining room with a new show called "Animation Magic," which "celebrates the magic of Disney animation and allows families to create and participate in a whole new way," Disney Cruise Line said.

The Disney Dream, which entered service in January, introduced the Animators’ Palate restaurant, where video screens on the wall come alive with characters from Disney’s various underwater worlds, which "swim" from screen to screen to talk to diners.

The ship will have a nighttime entertainment district exclusively for guests 18 and older, with "sophisticated bars and trendy lounges inspired by the very best in European travel."

Additionally, the Disney Fantasy will introduce new stage entertainment in its 1,340-seat theater with "Disney’s Aladdin — A Musical Spectacular." The Broadway-style production will feature the wise-cracking Genie and the cast from the classic animated Disney film "Aladdin."

The Disney Fantasy will operate week-long Caribbean cruises from Florida's Port Canaveral following its maiden voyage on March 31, 2012.
