As previously posted on the Disney Parks Blog:
Just announced, we’re bringing exciting new experiences to the Disney Dream
when we transform spaces throughout the ship this fall! Headlining the
enhancements are two new interactive youth areas, one themed to Star Wars and another to Disney Infinity. We’re also adding a whimsical sweet shop serving handmade gelato and the ever-popular Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Here’s a look at the new spaces and the fun in store for Disney Dream cruisers …
Star Wars: Millennium Falcon
In Disney’s Oceaneer Club, kids are in for an out-of-this-galaxy experience in a newly themed play, Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, inspired by the spacecraft from the legendary saga.
Upon entering the spaceship, younglings will join the Rebel Alliance
in the epic battle of good versus evil by assisting with the navigation
of this powerful space vehicle. Sitting in the cockpit, children can
pilot this super-cool spaceship through hyperspace and trigger
lightspeed jumps to different locations around the galaxy.
We’ll also offer Star Wars-themed crafts, games and activities in this space. Plus, kids can 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’ action-packed adventures.
The excitement continues during a shipboard version of the popular
Jedi Training Academy experience that invites young Jedi hopefuls –
known as “Padawans” – to learn lightsaber moves from a Jedi Master. They
can then use the Force and face off in a final test against the evil
Disney Infinity Toy Box
Also in the Oceaneer Club, a high-tech interactive space based on the Disney Infinity 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.
The complete set of Disney Infinity character figures will
be on display for creative inspiration and available for gameplay. Kids
visiting this special room – found only on the Disney Dream – will be
able to unlock exclusive Disney Cruise Line content that they can continue to enjoy when playing Disney Infinity at home.
Special activities will 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 unlike any other. Lighting up in response
to gameplay on a large screen, this interactive floor will allow kids to
be immersed in the Toy Box.
Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats
Handmade gelato and ice cream, an assortment of candy, and delectable
novelty treats are some of the deliciousness available for purchase at
Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats. Resembling the whimsical 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 and checkerboard patterned floor, gas pump-style gumball
dispensers, Vanellope’s race car and King Candy’s throne. This specialty
store coming to Deck 11 will have two entrances, inside Cabana’s restaurant and outside by the pool deck.
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
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 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
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.
This wave of enhancements to the Disney Dream debuts on the October 26 four-night voyage from Port Canaveral, following the ship’s dry dock October 4-24, 2015 in Freeport, Bahamas. Which new space are you most excited about?
