    Been reading your TR throughout the day - LOVE all the info especially pictures!! Your daughter is precious.. I think my favorite picture is her running to Mickey! Headed to our first Disney cruise in July. We are doing concierge on 11th deck.

    Question.. is it possible to watch the pirate fireworks from the concierge sun deck? It never seems crowded!

    Also.. this shoreside concierge.. how do you contact them? I have a few ?s and don't have a phone #.

    Outstanding TR. As you can tell from my post count, I'm pretty new here. We did our first Disney cruise, and my first cruise ever, on the Dream back in August. We did 4 days at Disney World and then the short cruise to Nassau. We lucked out and got a Cabana when we got to Castaway Cay. I just walked up to the Cabana reception and asked if there had been any cancellations, and we got #17 on Serenity Bay. We had our kids. 18,20, and 22 with us.

    In September, we're on the Fantasy. My wife and I will be in a 1 bedroom concierge suite, and we're taking my parents with us. They'll be right down the hall a couple of doors. My mom is a big kid and is going to have the time of her life. We have another cabana on Serenity Bay, #20. Can't wait to spoil my parents rotten. They've never done anything like this.

    Thanks for the great report!

    Wow! I just came upon your report and thoroughly enjoyed reading it! I have been loving reading everything on the boards. I have learned so much. We are sailing on the Fantasy June 2015!!!! We are going to be on the conceirge level in 12016. Reading your report has given me so much insight. I made the decision to spend the extra money on the conceirge for us bc I knew Disney would make it great. Now I am even more excited! Thanks for taking the time to write about your trip in such detail and give info on the conceirge services. I was already planning to try to get a cabana but now I have to have one!

    I did have one question I am hoping you can answer......in the conceirge lounge do you remember what kind of food and snacks they offered for the kids? Did your little girl find food in there she enjoyed? Thanks for your reply!

    They will get you anything (within reason) you want for your kids. Literally.

    For instance, emme loves blueberry yogurt. Every time they saw her for breakfast, they would give her a pack of yogurt...even stocked our fridge in addition to 2% milk.

    One breakfast, it was a bit drizzly and EMME said she wanted some pancakes. So Alice went and got her a plate of pancakes and blueberries from cabanas. It was so sweet as she said a princess shouldn't get wet.

    There's always fresh fruit and pastries available...lots of desserts too. The CL was awesome...we loved our experience and the food was delicious and so fresh.

    Hi! It's great to see another Asian on these boards. I'm also doing a 3 generational trip on the Fantasy in April. Although not concierge...and your TR isn't helping LOL...cuz I so want to do Concierge too but not enough funds...

    My 65 yr old mom is going w/ me in April, as well as my sister, and my toddler girl. Can you share with me what your mom did during the cruise? Did she try out the Rainforest?
