It's finally here! The Maiden Voyage of the Disney Fantasy!

Here's a look at some pictures that I took today after we boarded - not sure I'll have time to caption them before sailaway, but we'll see how far I get.

First look at the Fantasy as we approached the port;

I don't have any photos ready yet, but the Sailaway party was fun - we had a few showers and it was quite windy at the start, though. I posted a few pictures to Twitter: @AllEarsLaura. The Fantasy was escorted out to sea by two fireboats spraying water, and there were lots of people waving Mickey hands at us from the parks and restaurants along the shore as we went out the channel..

We have early dining this time, which I think I'm going to like - it was nice to get done with dinner and then have time to go have a drink in Ooh La La (the champagne bar) rather than it being time to go to bed!

At Sea day tomorrow!
