    Hello again DMP! Sailing on the Fantasy at the end of Feb w/a 3yo & 5 yo. We didn't see any port adventures that fit our family. Is there anything walking distance from the port so we can just explore on our own schedule? TIA!

    Ahoy Julie –

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are so happy to see you here with us and it is exciting to help you plan your cruise that is coming really soon. Your pirate crew will love the Fantasy and I wish that I could go along with you! On the Eastern Caribbean route there will be stops at Tortola, St Thomas, St John, and Castaway Cay. We will break down your options one by one below:

    Tortola’s port is Road Town which is the center of town. Your pirate crew will easily be in walking distance of museums, Cane Garden, and shopping. If you choose a Disney excursion instead, then I recommend the Island Drive Beach Break because there are no age restrictions for your sea pups and they can enjoy the beach, sand, and sun.

    St Thomas has a Dollar Bus that charges $1-2 per person to ride throughout the town. There are no shops close by but the buses are open air and you can easily go into town to visit. The Butterfly Anytime excursion is also an option available that you can walk to. On some itineraries the ship may not dock and the island is accessible only by tender boat, so please check your Personal Navigator to see what your options are.

    St John is accessible by tender boat so there is nothing nearby to walk to. If you wish to explore this island, then I suggest a Disney Cruise Port Adventure.

    Julie, your cruise will be here before you know it and we thank you for sharing your excitement with us. Please come back to see us with more questions that may come up.
