Family Cruising: Disney Dream

Meet Disney Dream

Disney Dream is designed to reflect the glamour of the golden age of cruising during the 1930’s. With 1,250 staterooms, maximum capacity is 4,000 passengers. Spanning 14 decks, the 128,000-gross-ton Disney Dream is 1,115 feet long and carries 1,458 crew members.

Family cruisers familiar with Disney Magic and Disney Wonder will recognize the black hull with two funnels (only one is functional) and porthole windows. All Disney ships have the same exterior color palette as Mickey Mouse with black, white, red and yellow.

One-Of-A-Kind Venues and Experiences

Family cruisers know they can count on Disney Cruise Line to offer memorable family vacations. In addition to award winning programming, Disney Dream is offering new venues and experiences that show off Disney’s wizardry.

AquaDuck watercoaster on Disney Dream

AquaDuck – the first water coaster at sea. A high-speed thrill ride that combines the ups and downs of a roller coaster with all the twists and turns of a water slide and a lazy river.

Magical Portholes – a “virtual window” to the world for inside staterooms, with a real-time view outside the ship. High-definition cameras feed live video to each stateroom, and they reflect the scene outside. For example, if Disney Dream is in Bahamas, you see the Bahamas, real-time, in your porthole.

Enchanted Art – Throughout Disney Dream, guests will encounter Enchanted Art that immerses guests in Disney storytelling in a completely new way. Appearing as traditional framed art, Enchanted Art magically comes alive when guests pause to admire the artwork. Enchanted Art looks like other hanging art pieces around the ship, but is actually a framed LCD screen with technology that recognizes a guest is present. There are 22 pieces of Hidden Art on Disney Dream.

Magic Playfloor – Young cruisers in Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Disney’s Oceaneer Lab will enjoy the Magic Playfloor, a cruise industry first that blends the latest in gaming technology with Disney storytelling.


Magic PlayFloor is an interactive experience, a first on Disney Cruise Line.

Living Characters – In Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Disney’s Oceaneer Lab youth areas, Disney characters will interact with children via a 103-inch plasma screen. Look for Crush, the animated sea turtle from the Disney Pixar motion picture “Finding Nemo,” or the animated alien Stitch to chat, play and joke with kids in what Disney Cruise Line promises to be “live, unrehearsed conversations.”

Discover what awaits you and your family onboard the ship

Entertainment – Disney Dream includes live musical productions shows, first-run films, Digital 3-D movies and fun-filled family deck parties.

Pools – On Deck 11, cruisers will find three pools—one for kids, one for families, and one for adults only.

The District caters to adults in the evening

Nightclubs & Lounges – A new feature on Disney Dream is The District. This adults-only entertainment area offers five distinct lounges and nightclubs.

Fine Dining at Remy – this French inspired specialty restaurant is for adults only. The gourmet menu, created by Chef Arnaud Lallement from l’Assiette Champenoise — a Michelin 2-star restaurant just outside Reims, France — and Chef Scott Hunnel from award-winning Victoria & Albert’s at Walt Disney World Resort will be a cruise highlight. Cost $75 per person for the nine-course menu.


Disney Dream will sail three-, four- and five-night cruises to the Bahamas from Port Canaveral, Florida. Calls on Nassau and Disney’s Castaway Cay are featured on all itineraries. In addition, some five-night departures feature a visit to Key West, Florida, Nassau, Bahamas and Disney’s Castaway Cay in the Bahamas.

Some five-night Disney Dream itineraries will feature a second call on Disney’s Castaway Cay. These non-consecutive days allow more time at this popular Disney themed family destination.
