After returning from a three-week dry dock, new experiences and fun await guests sailing the Disney Dream.
Headlining the ship’s enhancements are two new interactive youth areas, one themed to Star Wars and another to Disney Infinity. Also new is a sweet shop serving handmade gelato and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. For adults, a new splash pool and sun deck provide an oasis for relaxing.
Here is a glimpse at what is in store for guests of all ages:
A newly themed area in Disney’s Oceaneer Club, open to ages three to 12, features an out-of-this-galaxy experience inspired by the Star Wars saga.
Kids are transported far far away at Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, a Force-filled play area inspired by the spacecraft from the saga. Upon entering the spaceship, younglings join the Rebel Alliance in the battle of good versus evil by assisting with navigation of the space vehicle. Sitting in the cockpit, children can pilot the spaceship through hyperspace and trigger lightspeed jumps to different locations around the galaxy.
Kids can also watch episodes from the new Disney XD animated series, “Star Wars Rebels,” on a large screen or virtually join the rebellion at gaming stations featuring the series’ adventures.
The excitement continues during a shipboard version of the popular Jedi Training experience that invites young Jedi hopefuls to learn lightsaber moves from a Jedi Master.
In the Disney Infinity area, children can experience a whole new way of playing together with virtual experiences and immersive activities. Customized, on-screen adventures bring to life characters and stories from across The Walt Disney Company.
The complete set of Disney Infinity character figures is on display for creative inspiration and available for gameplay. Kids visiting this special room – found only on the Disney Dream – can also unlock exclusive Disney Cruise Line content that they can continue to enjoy when playing Disney Infinity at home.
Special activities bring the virtual gameplay experience to life in the real world. For example, a life-sized Disney Infinity Base sets the stage where children take the place of character figures for a group gaming experience. Lighting up in response to gameplay on a large screen, this interactive floor allows kids to be immersed in the Toy Box.
Vanellope’s Sweets and Treats satisfies the sweet tooth of cruisers of all ages, with handmade gelato and ice cream, an assortment of candy, and novelty treats for purchase. New to Deck 11, the smell of freshly baked waffle cones and candy lingers from the specialty store’s two entrances, inside Cabanas restaurant and outside by the pool deck.
Resembling the candy land of the Sugar Rush race car game in “Wreck-It Ralph,” the sweet shop’s décor features nods to the film, including a race track, gas pump-style gumball dispensers, Vanellope’s race car and King Candy’s throne.
New flavors of gelato and ice cream are offered daily, along with a wide selection of toppings. Signature sundaes include Vanellope Von Schweetz’s Race Kart Sundae, served in Vanellope’s very own race car, and Ralph’s Family Challenge Sundae, presented in a trophy cup and made with eight heaping scoops of ice cream, meant for the entire family to share.
Bibbidi Bobbed Boutique on Deck 5 midship brings pixie-dusted and piratical makeovers to young guests. The salon offers aspiring princesses and knights ages three to 12 the chance to transform into royalty with the help of a fairy godmother-in-training. On pirate party night, this boutique becomes “The Pirates League” where swashbuckling pirates of all ages will have the opportunity to unleash their inner buccaneer.
Retreat for Adults
Exclusively for adults, Deck 13 forward includes a new water feature, Satellite Falls, a circular splash pool with benches and a gently falling rain curtain that provides cool comfort. Around this upper deck, adult guests can soak up the sun in loungers or relax in the shade under a canopy.
