2. Unlimited self serve ice cream.

What could be better than helping yourself to ice cream whenever you wish? On other cruise ships, this may come at a cost, but it is included in your Disney Cruise experience. You will find the ice cream stations all over the ship so you can help yourself whenever you are ready for a sweet treat. Sorry though, no free Dole Whips ::sad face::.

3. Faster check-in lines.

Whether it be the arrival check in line or the customs check-in, Disney has twice as many agents working to move you through sooner. You will find yourself waiting less and enjoying the ship more. Disney has an effective and streamlines check-in process so lines aren’t an issue.

4. Nightly freebies delivered to your room.

Each night a cast member will deliver the daily itinerary to your room along with some fun freebies. The freebies might be pirate rags for pirate night, glow sticks for the deck party, or chocolates to enjoy before bed. Look forward to fun freebies arriving nightly for your family to enjoy.

5. Your own private island, Castaway Cay.

Disney has its own island, Castaway Cay for their guests to enjoy. Because it is only Disney guests on the island, you will notice less crowding and lines. You will also enjoy eateries included in the all inclusive dining, which makes visiting the islands even more fun for you and your family. Don’t forget to register for the Castaway Cay 5k!!

6. Unlimited fresh fruit buffets on Castaway Cay.

7. A split bathroom with bathtub and other room amenities.

One thing unique to Disney ships is the cabins have split bathrooms. So while someone is showering, there is the sink and mirror area where another family member can get ready. This split bathroom gives you more space and lets more people get ready at once. Also, Disney is one of the only cruise lines that have bathtubs. No walk-in showers here!

You will also enjoy other room amenities such as fold-down bedroom bunks for kids, magic portholes in cabins, unlimited Disney movie streaming in your cabin, and Disney movie collectibles displayed all over the ship.

Does Disney know how to do cruises or what?

I don’t think this is quite fair to say these are unique to Disney- every other cruise line I’ve been on has unlimited soft serve, many other lines have their own private island (with buffets that have fruit), and while Disney may have more people checking you in we haven’t found to have long waits on any of the three other lines we have traveled on.

Hate to nitpick but the "bathtub" on Fantasy was a bathtub in name only. The bathtub walls were quite low and you would not be able to fully soak your body in it.

Completely fair! I guess it depends on if one wants to soak or not. I’m not a tub soaker.

I wouldn't say the ice cream and soft drink stations are "all over the ship". They are in a centralized location by the pools and the Cabana buffet. If you go to the theater or bars and get soda, there is a cost.

Thanks for the clarification!
