    My son has autism and we had planned an August cruise for this year on the Disney's Fantasy. I was wondering, does the kids' camp accommodate my child with one on one supervision.

    Ahoy Jenny!
    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  The Disney Fantasy is a magnificent vessel, and I'm sure you are counting the days until it is your family's turn to sail away to the beautiful Caribbean!  The youth counselors are trained to deal with children with special needs including children with autism.  Since every child's needs are different, you will need to speak to the youth programming coordinator once you board the ship.  The Oceaneer Club & Lab will be open for families to explore on embarkation day so this is the perfect time to experience this space with your son and meet with the coordinator & counselors about your son.  If you haven't already, you might want to note that your son is autistic on your cruise reservation by calling Disney Cruise Line at (800) 951-3532.  Also, there is a Special Services Information Form that you should fill out when you are completing your online check-in on  This information will be helpful to the crew of the Disney Fantasy. 
    I hope you have the most magical time sailing on the newest beauty in the Disney fleet! 
    Have a wonderful day and bon voyage!
