The Disney Dream offers a variety of itineraries, mainly sailing to the Caribbean and The Bahamas.
OVERVIEW / PLANNING TOOLS
The maiden voyage for the Disney Dream was January 26, 2011. This ship is 40% larger than the Disney Wonder and Disney Magic, with two additional decks and 1,250 staterooms. Each Inside stateroom has a “virtual” porthole showing rolling waves and Disney characters swimming by all in HD. One of the most popular features is the first ever water roller coaster at sea – the Aqua Duck is 250 yards of transparent tubing that sends guests soaring over the top decks and at one point – over the ocean!
The Disney Dream offers the latest designs with an Art Deco atmosphere, contemporary staterooms, elegant restaurants, and fabulous entertainment. In addition to the kids’ clubs, there are nightclubs and lounges, as well as theaters for movies and live shows.

DISNEY DREAM STATEROOMS
The staterooms on the Disney Dream were designed especially for the needs of families. With this ship, an exciting new feature for inside staterooms was introduced – the addition of virtual portholes! These high-definition “portholes” have a 24-hour view of the ocean brought to you by a hi-def camera that’s mounted on the outside of the ship. Look closely – you may even see some of your favorite Disney characters float by!

There are TV screens on the walls around the restaurant and the Finding Nemo characters will visit the tables to chat with guests during “Undersea Magic.” Guests will also experience “Animation Magic”, an interactive dinner show that will involve the guests in the animation shown during the meal. Guests are invited to draw Disney characters on placemats when they first come into the restaurant; servers will collect the completed drawings, which later show up as animation on screens around the room. The guests’ names will be shown and they will later receive their drawings back with a special animator’s stamp added. The show uses special Disney-created software to bring the drawings to life, along with a brand-new musical score and never-before-seen scenes from Disney films.
Enchanted Garden serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner as a Main Dining restaurant. During the daytime meals, the ceiling is a bright blue sky. For the evening meal, the Enchanted Garden transforms itself from day to night with a starry sky full of constellations. The decor is made to feel like you are eating in the famous gardens of Versailles, France. You are surrounded by white trellises, arches, and landscape artwork. Lighting becomes part of the artwork, with the fixtures designed like glass flowers and light posts lining the center aisle. The glass flowers “bloom” at night and become colorful, as the rest of the gardens open as well. The centerpiece is a seven-foot-tall fountain with a Mickey Mouse statue in the center.
This restaurant serves French-inspired cuisine that’s fit for a king or queen. The decor is inspired by classic Disney Princess films, including hand-painted portraits of Aurora, Cinderella, Snow White, and Belle.
With its 270-degree ocean view from high atop the ship, Palo has the loveliest view of all restaurants on the ship. Palo is for adults 18 and over only, and reservations are required. This restaurant features outstanding Northern Italian cuisine prepared to order.
Guests may only book ONE dinner at Palo in advance, however for guests that make an online reservation for a Palo Dinner for the very first night of their Disney cruise, they may also reserve a second Palo and/or Remy on one other night during their cruise.
The view from Palo is spectacular due to the restaurant’s location on the ship, but please keep in mind that the view is only “viewable” before sunset. Around the perimeter of Palo is a walkway, which at night is illuminated by bright lights. After sunset, the only things visible from Palo are those bright lights and a reflection of the interior of the restaurant. We would certainly not let this deter us from taking an available reservation at a later time, but we like to let guests know that an earlier reservation is often easier to get and offers the addition of the spectacular view and sunset. A new feature on the Dream and Fantasy is the option to dine outside on Palo’s private teak deck.
Because your server does not follow you to this restaurant, a $40 cover charge per person is applied. In addition to dinner, Palo brunch is served at Palo on days at sea.
Dress code: Guests are asked to “preserve the ambiance” of this fine dining venue. Dress pants, slacks, and collared shirts are recommended for men and a dress, skirt, or pants and a blouse are recommended for women. Jeans may also be worn if in good condition (no holes). No tank tops, swimsuits, swimsuit cover-ups, shorts, hats, cut-offs, torn clothing, t-shirts with offensive language and/or graphics, flip-flops, or tennis shoes are allowed.
This adults-only premier dining location is on the Disney Dream and Fantasy. The French-inspired restaurant is named Remy, after the star of the hit film, Ratatouille and uses seasonal ingredients from around the world.
Guests may only book ONE dinner at Remy in advance, however for guests that make an online reservation for a Remy Dinner for the very first night of their Disney cruise, they may also reserve a second Palo and/or Remy on one other night during their cruise.
Chef Arnaud Lallement from l’Assiette Champenoise, a Michelin two-star restaurant in France, and Chef Scott Hunnel from Walt Disney World’s signature restaurant Victoria & Albert’s have teamed up to create the new menu. Dinner starts with a signature chilled Champagne cocktail and features eight or nine small courses. Remy has ocean views from its top deck location and is decorated in Art Nouveau style. Images of the character Remy are hidden throughout the design. This meal has a $125 fee, plus an additional charge if you want wine pairings with your meal. Brunch is $75 per person.
Dress code at Remy on all cruises:
- A tuxedo or jacket (sports or suit jacket) is required with dress pants for men. Ties are optional.
- A cocktail dress, pantsuit, or skirt/blouse is required for women.
- Please no jeans, shorts, capri pants, flip-flops, or tennis shoes
Cabanas is a Casual Dining restaurant that serves fresh food favorites. You have the option of eating indoors or outdoors on the pool deck. Cabanas is a buffet that also serves a few made-to-order food choices for breakfast and lunch. At dinner, the restaurant becomes a table-service dining room serving Main Dining specialties. Cabanas is most easily accessible from the Aft elevators.

Senses Spa & Salon sports a contemporary design and offers a variety of services. The Rejuvenation Spa offers an array of cosmetic body and facial treatments.
For the Whole Family
The D Lounge is the ship’s main hangout for games, dance parties, live entertainment, and family-friendly activities.
The “it’s a small world” nursery, based on the theme park attraction, is the perfect place for your little ones to play while you enjoy a grownups’ night out.
The Oceaneer Club, one of the areas for children age 3-12, has 4 separate areas that are themed as a Andy’s Room (from Toy Story), the Disney Infinity Game Room, Pixie Hollow, and Star Wars: Millennium Falcon.
One play area is themed around the Millennium Falcon from the Star Wars films. Kids will join the Rebel Alliance and help pilot the ship from the cockpit. They can go through hyperspace and jump to different points around the galaxy. There are also Star Wars Rebels gaming stations; themed crafts, games, and activities; and showings of Star Wars Rebels on a large screen.
The Oceaneer Lab will take kids (ages 3-12) on a great adventure full of maps, constellations, and even a stage for all of their greatest performances! This stage is one of the main gathering spaces in the Lab – perfect for kids to listen to stories and to act out their own. Individual computer stations will allow them to enjoy interactive games.
Disney movies will be shown on the 103-inch plasma TV; animated characters will come to life on this screen and interact with the kids. The main room is also the beginning of a ship-wide adventure where kids will become explorers and hunt for clues. The Club and Lab are connected with a secure, kids-only hallway, so children can go between the two areas freely.
Edge and Vibe
Catering to this basic fact of family-vacation life, Disney Cruise Line provides ultra-cool plush pads exclusively for teens and tweens who want a little independence. These trendy and tranquil areas offer an elite getaway for teens and tweens to set their own vacation agenda, whether socializing with new friends, playing the latest video games, experiencing cutting-edge technology or just chilling out.
While the Edge experience aboard each pair of ships differs, the idea behind them is the same: Edge provides guests ages 11 to 14 with their own special hangout where they can connect with other tweens from around the world. Equipped with high-tech entertainment including flat-screen TVs, computers and video games and featuring daily guided activities, this interactive play space becomes teens’ favorite on-ship destination.
While the Vibe experience aboard each ship differs, the idea behind them is the same: Vibe provides guests ages 14 to 17 with their own special place where they can break off from the family and connect with other teens from around the world. Designed with their interests in mind, each lounge is laden with amenities and activities that will keep them engaged and entertained while encouraging them to mingle.
DISNEY DREAM RECREATION
The AquaDuck is the first-ever water coaster at sea featuring 250 yards of transparent tubing that sends you twisting and turning over the top decks and out over the sea. This coaster is 765 feet long and features a 4 deck drop. Riders must be 42″ tall to ride with someone else, 54″ to ride alone. If a rider is under 7 years old, they must ride with someone 14 years of age or older.
The Disney Dream has an open-air sports deck. This innovative complex is located on Deck 13 and has activities for all ages while the grown-ups join in or relax and enjoy the expansive views of the sea.
- Miniature Golf: This 9-hole course was designed by Goofy and his son, Max, so you may find yourself trying to golf with a crooked club!
- Virtual Sports Simulators: Don’t want to play actual sports? How about virtual ones? Digital sports simulators provide virtual games such as soccer, golf, tennis, and basketball.
- Sports Courts: The full-size basketball court can be changed to a mini soccer field or volleyball court. Two mini-sized courts are available for the younger kids to play soccer or basketball.
- Other activities: You can find ping pong, foosball tables, and a walking track around the sports deck. The walking track is .4 miles per lap – 8 laps equal a 5K race.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Kids ages 3-12 can visit Deck 10 for a Princess or Royal Knight makeover (Pirate makeovers will be available for all ages on Pirate Night).
The Fitness Center onboard the Disney Dream is located on Deck 11/Forward and is a full-service facility that hosts aerobic, yoga, and Pilates classes, as well as health seminars. Weight machines, ellipticals, and personal trainers ($89 for a 60 min session) will keep you in great shape while on vacation!
