Disney Cruise Line confirmed some of the new additions and experienece coming the the Disney Dream this October during her first dry dock. The Disney Dream 2015 Dry Dock will be in Freeport, Bahamas from October 4 – 24, 2015. There will be some exciting changes to the children’s spaces with the addition of a Star Wars themed area and another dedicated to Disney Infinity video game. A new candy store inspired by Wreck-it Ralph will sell candy and serve homemade gelato to passengers. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique will be added to the Disney Dream. The changes are not just for the kids; Satellite Falls which is a wonderful spot on the Disney Fantasy will be added to the Disney Dream.
Additional enhancements around the Disney Dream include the addition of the Funnel Puddle family wading pool, décor enhancements and high–tech upgrades at 687 Pub, Pink, the District Lounge and Skyline. Midship Detective Agency will be updated with The Muppet themed game, The Case of the Stolen Show.
This wave of enhancements to the Disney Dream will debut on the October 26, 2015 4-Night Bahamian Cruise – Itinerary A from Port Canaveral to sailing to the Nassau and Castaway Cay. Guess what… We have been booked on this cruise since last May and look forward to bringing you live updates on October 26th!
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. Satellite Falls was an instant hit when it debuted on the Disney Fantasy.
Presently, the Disney Dream just has an open deck.
Oceaneer Club Enhancements
Star Wars Experience
A newly themed area in Disney’s Oceaneer Club, open to ages three to 12, will delight children with an out-of-this-galaxy experience inspired by the Star Wars saga.
Kids will be transported to a far away galaxy at Star Wars: Millennium Falcon, a Force-filled play area 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.
In Millennium Falcon, children can express their creativity through Star Wars-themed crafts, games and activities. They 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’ 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 Darth Vader.
Sure, Star Wars will garner most of the attention in the Oceaneer Club, but there is something else…
High-Tech Disney Infinity Space Adds Adventure for Kids
A high-tech interactive space based on the Disney Infinity video game will offer 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 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
Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats will satisfy the sweet tooth of 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.
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.
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 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.
