Listen to this episode

Join us In this special episode, as we recap our first Me and the Magic group cruise.

Our group sailed November 11-18, 2023, on the Disney Fantasy for a Very Merrytime sailing. The itinerary was a 7-night Eastern Caribbean sailing, with stops in Tortola, British Virgin Islands; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Disney’s Castaway Cay in the Bahamas. We also had 3 glorious sea days.

Several people from our group are here to share our favorite memories as we talk about the Disney Fantasy ship, the Eastern Caribbean itinerary, excursions at Tortola and St. Thomas, activities on board the ship, and what it was like to sail on a Very Merrytime cruise. 

Thanks to everyone for being on the show today. A special thanks to Beci Mahnken and Grace Korba, with MEI-Travel and Mouse Fan Travel, for sailing with us, and to all at MEI-Travel and Mouse Fan Travel who planned our group’s travels for the cruise and also pre-cruise and post-cruise. Also, thanks to Grace Korba for being part of this episode recap. Connect with Grace online on Facebook, or email Grace at to plan your next trip.
