    I am sailing on the Fantasy in August and a few weeks ago I saw you could order a case of bottled water for your cabin. It isn't listed anymore. How can I do this? Also they talk about a coaster bus on some excursions. What is that?

    Ahoy there Lorraine! Welcome aboard the decks here at planDisney! I see you're going to be sailing from Port Canaveral on the Disney Fantasy on your way to a Western Caribbean itinerary! What a perfect way to spend the middle of August! That itinerary is such a great way to have the perfect mix of amazing Ports of Call and (my favorite) relaxing days at sea! 

    Truthfully, I'm still waiting for another opportunity to sail the Panama Canal (talk about sea days!) but you've got me thinking about squeezing in another Western Caribbean sailing! 

    When it comes to ordering water to your cabin, if Onboard Gifts isn't currently showing it as available, in my experience, it's usually a temporary omission! That said, onboard gift availability is always subject to change like the tides, but I'd keep checking back periodically as you approach your sail date! If pre-ordering doesn't work out for you, don't fret! On embarkation day, there are usually plenty of opportunities around the ship to purchase a water package which often includes a soft cooler, too! Keep a weather eye open for the helpful beverage crew members in the colorful costumes on the open decks and around the lounges and you'll likely be able to snag one!

    Oh, and here's a planDrew-approved tip - on most port days, they'll also set up water package sales right outside the meeting areas for Port Adventures - you know what they say: location, location, location! 

    Ah, the Coaster bus! Allow me to nerd-out a bit for a moment: I may be a Disney Cruise Line specialist, but I'm also a fan of transportation in all forms - not just the most beautiful ships sailing the high seas! The Coaster is just a type of minibus that can be found basically everywhere in the world - except the US! They usually carry between 24 and 30 Guests at a time, in a small form factor, making them the perfect vehicles for traveling from Ports of Call on Port Adventures! They sort of look like those Class-A RVs that you see around Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground! 

    Well, Lorraine, I hope I've managed to quench your thirst for knowledge for now! Thank you so incredibly much for your questions! If you find that any others bubble to the surface between now and August, please sail my way again and drop me a line! You know where to find me here at planDisney! 

    Until then, fair winds and following seas!
