A Fantasy AquaDuck
This isn't an aqueduct, it's the AquaDuck. Riders sit on rafts and zoom through AquaDuck's tube system that wraps around both sides of the Fantasy, Disney's newest cruise ship. Passengers on deck can watching rafts go by high overhead.
Ride the Duck
The centerpiece of the ship’s AquaLab –a 1,800-square-foot water play area --is the AquaDuck, which takes riders out over the ocean through transparent tubes set high above the deck. Click here for more.
The first turn on the AquaDuck takes passengers out over the open ocean.
Out of Control?
The story goes that Donald Duck’s nephews -- Huey, Dewey, and Louie --built the AquaDuck. They were worried their uncle would get stuck, but he sailed through "like an AquaDuck,” so fast that he got stuck in the smoke stack. Click here for more.
Climb to the Top
The AquaDuck begins with a 69-step climb up the Mickey Mouse-eared entrance that leads guests inside the smoke stack, and the start of the ride.
Inside the Action
The ride’s operators use cameras to watch passengers as they slide along and determine when it’s safe for the next rider to enter.
Into the Lights of Darkness
In the darkest portion of the ride, a Space Mountain-style star field of sorts illuminates the tube in a variety of passing colors.

When the sun goes down the Disney Fantasy top decks glow in shades of red, blue, orange, and white, and the tubes are illuminated with lights that rotate colors.
