Disney In Depth: Aboard Disney Cruise Line, An Unforgettable Fantasy

Disney In Depth banner

Do you remember watching the Disney Cruise Line commercials that aired in 1998, encouraging you to “discover uncharted magic” and set sail on the Disney Magic? Sixteen years have passed, and with four ships in its fleet, Disney Cruise Line is as bustling as ever with many dozens of voyages around the world each year.

I recently returned from a most excellent, elegant, and exciting voyage on the Disney Fantasy, the newest of the vessels. I continue to praise everything about what the ship has to offer, both tangibly and emotionally, but to describe an experience does not mean as much as actually living it.

I hope to encourage you to realize the possibilities of Disney Cruise Line, albeit through experiencing it vicariously, as I share memories of my time aboard the Disney Fantasy. My story is just one of many that individuals experienced on the same ship during the same week. Each varies in level of relaxation and fun, but almost all contain the same core elements that define Disney Cruise Line: magic, in every sense of the word.

Another day, another big trailer for a highly anticipated upcoming movie.

Today we have for you the teaser trailer for the much-buzzed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The movie is the fourth installment in Disney’s mammoth Pirates of the Caribbean franchise starring Johnny Depp as the beloved Captain Jack Sparrow.

Not much needs to be said, really. You’ve either stopped reading by now or you’ve already sprinted off to see the trailer! And speaking of the trailer, everything is looking pretty solid so far. There’s definitely a Pirates of the Caribbean movie on the way, but it also looks like it might be toning down the fantasy elements just a bit and embracing the human elements. That’s not to say fantasy won’t be a huge part of the movie though; as you’ll see, all of the promised mermaids and zombies and Fountain of Youth fun is accounted for.

Be sure to click on over to the other side to check out the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides!

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – Chapter IINOTE: For structural reasons and to ensure that this list is super-duper pretty at all times, we’ll be posting this same intro for all sections of The Decade List. If you’ve already read all of this, you can just head down to the continuation of our list!

Let’s just get it out of the way right off the ol’ bat: yes, we know it’s been month since we left the decade. Most folks undertook this heavy task pre-2010, but we decided that it would be a little bit better to let the new year settle in a bit before hitting you with something of this magnitude.

So here we are, geeks: we’ve officially arrived in FUTURE *cue retro ’50s sci-fi music* and still we have no freakin’ flying cars yet. What’s the deal with that? While it is pretty exciting to be inside of the year 2010 — a year that always seemed unreachable to us mere mortals — we are also exiting another entire decade that leaves us staring at one majorly epic task. That task? To search, dig, locate, retrieve, organize, polish, and present the very best films of the past ten years!
