Exciting new experiences await guests aboard the Disney Dream after spaces throughout the Disney Cruise Line vessel are transformed this fall.
Headlining the enhancements are two new interactive youth areas, one themed to Star Wars and another to Disney Infinity. Also, a whimsical sweet shop serving handmade gelato and the ever-popular Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will debut after the Disney Dream undergoes dry dock Oct. 4-24, 2015.
Here’s a glimpse at what’s in store:
Star Wars Area Brings Force-filled Fun for Children
At Disney’s Oceaneer Club, kids ages 3-12 will be transported to a far away galaxy with Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, a new Force-filled play area inspired by the spacecraft from the legendary saga.
Kids will join the Rebel Alliance in the epic battle of good versus evil by assisting with the navigation of the powerful space vehicle. They can also express their creativity through Star Wars-themed crafts, games and activities. Watch episodes from the new Disney XD animated series, “Star Wars Rebels.” Or, join the rebellion at gaming stations featuring the series’ action-packed adventures.
Plus, a shipboard version of the popular Jedi Training Academy experience invites young Jedi hopefuls to learn lightsaber moves from a Jedi Master. They can then use the Force and face off in a final test against the evil Darth Vader.
High-Tech Disney Infinity Space Adds Adventure for Kids
Also in the Oceaneer Club, a high-tech interactive space based on the Disney Infinity hybrid toy/video game offers more fun for kids.
In the Disney Infinity Toy Box area, children can experience a whole new way of playing together with exciting virtual experiences and immersive activities. Customized, on-screen adventures will bring to life characters and stories from across The Walt Disney Company. Kids will be able to unlock exclusive Disney Cruise Line content that they can continue to enjoy when playing Disney Infinity at home.
Specialty Sweet Shop for Families
Venellope’s Sweets & Treats, resembling the whimsical candy land of the Sugar Rush race car game in “Wreck-It-Ralph”, will satisfy cruisers of all ages with handmade gelato and ice cream, an assortment of candy and delectable novelty treats for purchase. New to Deck 11, the smell of freshly baked waffle cones and candy will linger from the specialty store’s two entrances, inside Cabana’s restaurant and outside by the pool deck.
Magical Makeover Salon for Princesses and Pirates
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, coming to Deck 5 midship, will bring to life the storybook fantasies of young Guests with pixie-dusted and piratical makeovers. This very special salon will offer aspiring princesses and knights ages 3-12 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.
Cool and Comfortable Retreat for Adults
Exclusively for adults, Deck 13 forward will include 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.
These enhancements will debut on the 4-Night Bahamian cruise departing Port Canaveral on Oct. 26, 2015.
