    We are sailing Fantasy in February. Are the beaches in Tortola and St.Thomas walking distance from the Port or do we need to make arrangements for travel before hand. Also, any recommendation on best beaches at those Ports? thanks

    Ahoy Lindsay –
    How amazing to have a cruise planned on the Disney Fantasy, and wow it’s coming up very soon! I’m sure that you and your pirate crew will enjoy a fantastic cruise, and your time away for your excursions will be so relaxing. There are many options for beaches and fun at Tortola and St Thomas that it is understandably difficult to choose just one. Most of the beaches are about a 30-40 minute ride from the pier and the port is not near a beach area. The best option for you and your pirate crew would be to choose an excursion through Disney Cruise Line.
    Tortola has many lovely beach options including Cane Garden Bay Beach so check the Island Drive Beach Break and the Island Tour, Beach and Lunch. A Day at the Baths has a sight-seeing tour followed by beach time and includes lunch.The Long Bay Beach excursion is nice, it includes a tour and your own reserved chair at the resort.
    At St Thomas, there are 2 nice beach tours which are Magens Bay Beach Break and Secrets Sands Beach, with the tour portion lasting about 25 minutes. Lindsay, you have plenty of fun beaches to explore on your upcoming cruise, and I wish you happy planning. Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and please come back to see us soon!
