Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy – All Three Encounters


Disney Fantasy as seen from the Dream

While on the preview cruise of the Disney Fantasy, we were blessed to have three up close encounters with the Disney Dream, the Fantasy’s older sister by about a year. As it turns out we had a friend on the Dream who sent me some great photos of the Fantasy and I managed to get some great video looking in the other direction.

On the final encounter, I was lucky enough to be up on deck 13 with just a few imagineers inlcuding Joe Lanzisero who played a large part in the creation of the Dream and the Fantasy. Here he is with his famously curly hair blown straight by the wind and his creation the Disney Dream in the water behind him.

This video was taken around the same time as the photo of Joe.
