Ferrytale Sparkling Dessert Cruise

Ferrytale Sparkling Dessert Cruise

Maggie Ballantyne 5.26.20 I always like to sprinkle my own personal travel itineraries with a few new experiences on each trip to Walt Disney World. It is one reason I love to go back: no two trips are ever the same. In November 2019, my mom and I decided to try the Ferrytale Sparkling Dessert Cruise for a special Happily Ever After viewing.
