“Always magical for children”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

I love to see the expression of my daughter when she sees the characters at the Magic Kingdom. It is probably the best run "company" I have ever seen. There are underground tunnels so no child will ever see Cinderella taking off her costume and they go to great lengths to make your experience "magical." I do not like the lines, so read up on fast pass, pre-booking etc. because if you are expecting to have breakfast with the characters, or lunch or dinner with the princesses, you will need to book weeks in advance. Also note, these experiences are for the kids to enjoy (although I see adults going alone) so unless you love the all you can eat breakfast idea, don't expect great food. In fact the food everywhere in the Magic Kingdom, hotels included, is mediocre at best. The experience overall, is awesome.

“Disney Fantasy Cruise... Caribbean 100% FUN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Could not believe how big was the ship. The Fantasy is a huge boat that accommodates more than 6 thousands persons including the crew. It was my first experience in a cruise. We celebrated my daughter birthday. It was great from food to every single show on board. The characters, the pool area and the ability only Disney has to locate attractions to each range of age. Small kids, teenagers, adults and senior people. The new water attraction called aquaduck is just an engineering piece of art. Then, you have the destination thru the Caribbean. From cayman islands thru Mexico, it was all very well prepared and we enjoyed this. The personal attention you receive is because you have an small team dedicated to you which see on every need you have during the trip. The crew was very professional and the Iron Man 3 premier was the tip of the ice cream after those incredible shows on board. Finally the private island that Disney has in Bahamas "Castaway" is hand made to allow you to enjoy the multiple and colorful fishes close to the shore. Pristine waters and a great barbecue. The only bad if there is something to say is that as any boat you will fell the motion especially when the tide is up. Take your dramamine if you do not tolerate this easy.... My hugs to our friend Engel (room keeper) Houri (restaurant) and Tomislav ( restaurant) all from different countries and cultures but looks pretty good working together under Disney flag.

“Disney April 2013”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Too much construction going on at Magic Kingdom. The commercials led you to believe Fantasyland would be completed.
The new Little Mermaid ride was cute, but if it is over 70 degrees outside, you will roast waiting to actually board the ride portion as there isn't any air flow in the cavern pre-board area.
