    Hi again! I sure appreciate y’all answering all my questions! Can you tell me what deck on the Fantasy is the sail away party? I assume the top deck?

    Ahoy Liz!

    “Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with Captain Mickey!” OK, so my song lyrics aren’t exactly original, but it does describe Disney Cruise Line perfectly. Wind in my hair, distant destinations awaiting...it’s my idea of pure bliss. 

    I am always so eager to experience all the Disney magic on that very first day, and a deck party is the best kickoff to get in the sailing spirit! I definitely love experiencing these deck parties when on a Disney cruise because they are festive, high-energy, and quite a SAILabration! It really gets me excited because I know that it’s the start of an exciting several days at sea and in different ports.

    The Sailing Away Deck Party on the Disney Fantasy is not to be missed, so I will gladly give you the scoop on where to go so as not to miss this one. Decks 11 and 12 are the places to be during this party. If seeing the characters and being close to the giant Funnel Vision and Deck Stage are more important to you, then head straight for Deck 11 after the Assembly Drill. But my favorite spot to view the deck party is from the railing along Deck 12. It provides a great vantage point for seeing the festivities and also watching the ship cast off its bow lines and officially set sail. 

    You may have already started a countdown to your Disney cruise. Did you know that you can also track the days remaining on the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app? That little countdown calendar is fun to watch as it slowly approaches your Embarkation Day.  Before you know it, you will be a part of the official Sail Away countdown as everyone yells, “5,4,3,2,1!” and then that beautiful ship horn blares! Naturally, it plays “When You Wish Upon a Star.” Would you expect anything less from Captain Mickey?

    Liz, we are tickled to be able to help you with any questions you might have. Cruise back over to planDisney and we will have a pre-Sail Away party answering them anytime!

    SEA ya real soon!
