    My daughter is 39 years old but is Downs Syndrome. She loves Disney Princesses. What can be done on board the Disney Fantasy in August to make this trip extra special?

    Ahoy Betty!
    I recently returned from a Disney Fantasy cruise and am always so pleased with all the character experiences offered onboard!  The Disney Princesses will be out and about for various meet and greet opportunities each day, but one not to miss is the Royal Princess Gathering held in the Grand Lobby Atrium.  At this event, several princesses will be on hand for autographs and photos.  Since you are on a seven-night sailing, this special princess meeting will be held several times so your daughter can attend them all if she likes.  I do recommend arriving early because this is a popular event!  I also recommend making sure she is in the audience for all the amazing Broadway-style shows.  The lovely Disney Princesses make appearances in Disney Wishes, Disney's Believe and Princess Jasmine stars in Aladdin, A Musical Spectacular. 
    Since your daughter is a princess fan, I also recommend bringing along an item or two to have personalized by Disney royalty!  Each stateroom is allowed to turn in two items to have signed by the characters or just the princesses.  They will sign just about anything, but some suggestions include a pillowcase, photo mat (for a princess picture of course), an ornament, tote bag, or t-shirt.  Be sure to place the two items in a plastic bag along with fabric markers or Sharpies, and on the outside of the bag include your name and stateroom number.  By the last night of your cruise, the items will be returned to your stateroom for your daughter to enjoy!
    I hope your daughter enjoys her magical meetings with the Disney Princesses onboard the Disney Fantasy! If you have further questions, please let me know!
