    Is there a beach within walking distance of the port in St. Marteen and St. Thomas or do you need to book a shore excursion?

    Ahoy Jill!
    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  You have so much to look forward to on your upcoming cruise on the majestic Disney Fantasy!  If you are looking to spend some time on the beach, I do recommend looking into the beach offerings in the Port Adventure section of the Disney Cruise website.  In St. Thomas, you will not find a beach within walking distance so you will have to venture out on your own via taxi.  If you decide to let Disney Cruise Line take care of all the details, Magens Bay Beach Break is a great choice! In St. Maarten, there is a beach area located not too far and you can reach it easily by water taxi or taxi.  Shopping and dining is also available close by.   There are two options to consider-Afternoon Beach Bash Tour and the French Riviera Beach Rendevous. Don't forget your last full day of your vacation will be spent on Disney's island paradise, Castaway Cay!  From the moment you disembark the ship, you will be awe of the natural beauty combined with the rustic Disney charm!  There are plenty of beach chairs, lounges, and umbrellas for your day on this beautiful beach!
    I hope I've been of help, Jill!  Please let me know if I can assist you further with your cruise plans!
    Have a magical day!
