    I'm trying to figure out what to budget for a trip on fantasy to the eastern car. I was wondering exactly what the cruise fare includes? What things should I budget extra and how much should I budget for them? A big thank you to everyone on this panel! :)

    Hi Dana!
    It is our pleasure to make your cruise planning a stress-free and fun process!  I love the planning almost as much as the cruise itself and love so much is included in the cruise fare.  Here is what you can expect to be covered in the price-spacious accommodations, delicious meals (including soft drinks), phenomenal entertainment, wide-variety of activities, lots of recreational fun, incredible kids' programming, and stunning ports of call.  The Fantasy is a floating destination so you could enjoy the ship for the entire seven days or decide to venture ashore to experience the ports of call on the Port Adventures offered by Disney Cruise Line.  These are an additional fee as well as alcoholic beverages, spa or salon treatments, adult-only dining at Palo and/or Remy, souvenirs, photos, childcare for under 3, and soft drinks when ordered from bar/room service.  Other fees you need to budget for are parking or ground transportation (if you are flying), trip insurance and gratuities.  It is hard to put an exact number on these items because most of them are optional.  Most of the pricing is included on the Disney Cruise Line website so if any of these extras interest you be sure to click on the link so you can see the price. 
    I like to pick up Disney Gift at the store while we are waiting for our voyage to begin so I can use them once we are onboard and it really helps with our budget.
    I'm about out of room, Dana so please follow up with any additional questions.
