Disney Fantasy Returns to Florida After Spending Months in France

The Disney Fantasy returned to Port Canaveral on Wednesday, December 2, 2020, joining the Disney Wonder which returned last week. The Disney Fantasy returned from a trip abroad which was part of a repatriation effort as well as an opportunity for a dry/wet dock in Europe. The following image gallery shows the Disney Fantasy’s morning arrival and maneuvering into her berth at Port Canaveral’s Cruise Terminal 10 (CT10). Photos are from PTZtv’s Port Canaveral webcam.

The Disney Fantasy sailed to Europe in late July, spending nearly four months in dry/wet dock in Brest, France with a stop in Southampton before charting a course back to Florida. The Disney Fantasy spent time out of water in the Brest, France dry dock berth between November 10 – 16, 2020.

As part of the CDC’s conditional sail order, each ship will need to earn certification to resume cruise operations and via test cruises. The Wonder’s arrival back in Florida within the CDC’s jurisdiction is a step in the right direction. While this is a positive step forward, there are many hurdles left to cross before cruising resumes.

The Disney Dream will soon join the Disney Wonder and Disney Fantasy as she is currently sailing across the Atlantic, and is scheduled to arrive in Florida late on December 9th – early December 10, 2020.

    Can anyone explain why the cruise ships continue to go out to sea? I understand that they travel for dry dock and there was a time they were transporting goods. But today both the Fantasy and Wonder are just off shore from Port Canaveral. Anchored, I assume. Just curious what they are doing.

    Sure do miss Disney cruising. I was thinking about a cruise in August 2021. Nothing was available for what I wanted from Disney. I researched another company. But quickly realized, there’s no way I could do it. Disney all the way. No need to even shop. Just take my money.

      Hi Mike,
      It costs money for the ships to dock. Dropping anchor does not incur port fees. They also need to go out ever so often to remain seaworthy and well… exchange some water.
