AquaLab aboard Disney FantasyAlthough the Disney Fantasy has already arrived in New York City for her christening on March 1, the Transatlantic voyage vlog continues with today’s entry: a look at just some of the water-based recreation for families.

Of note amongst the items (re-)introduced by Cruise Director Brent Davies, is what may a first look at the Disney Fantasy-exclusive water play area known as the AquaLab. Located on deck 12 aft aboard the Disney Fantasy, the AquaLab is the result of Donald’s nephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie as they look to build the AquaDuck water coaster with ‘spare’ parts found around the ship. The result is a 2,000 square foot area laden with 24 pop jets and other aquatic features that keep water cycling through at a magnificent 900 gallons per minute.
