If you are looking for a great cruise for your family, look no further than a Disney Dream Cruise! There is a reason why Disney Cruise Line is known as the top cruise line for family vacations.  

The Disney Dream ship is packed full of activities that the whole family will enjoy and although a bit more pricey than other cruise lines, I think you will find that it is worth every penny.

Disney Dream Cruise Review

Disney Dream Oceanview Room

Disney Dream Stateroom with Split Bathrooms

Staterooms on a Disney Dream Cruise are more spacious than most other cruise line cabins.

There are four designations for rooms: Concierge, Verandah, Oceanview & Inside.

Each room has different configurations and features a mini-fridge and a safe.

Kids sailing on the Disney Dream will enjoy sleeping on the bunk beds that fold into a couch during the day to give you extra seating area when you want to relax in your room.

Staterooms on the Disney Dream have one feature that we just love, a split bathroom. One bathroom has tub & sink, while other has toilet & sink. Makes getting ready a breeze for families!

Teen Activities on Disney Dream Ship

Kids Activities on Disney Dream

Kids have so much to do on a Disney Dream Cruise that they will NEVER get bored especially with the new updates of the Oceaneer Club.

Younger kids (under 12) can spend time playing video games, dressing up, doing art or just watching a movie on the big screen. Disney Characters even come to join in on the fun!

Older kids (11-14) will enjoy all the fun activities they have at Club Edge! They can watch sports on the large screen TVs, play group activities, craft or just enjoy playing video games.

There is also a Teen club (Vibe) for older kids that has a smoothie bar, video games and planned activities geared toward their age group.

Disney Dream Pools & Waterslides

One of the highlights on the Disney Dream is the Aquaduck! This 765-foot-long water coaster will even take you over the side of the ship!

It is fun and there is really nothing scary about it! You will also find 2 pools and a toddler water play area on deck!

Disney Poolside Trivia

Poolside Movies

If water slides aren’t your thing, then you can always spend time playing trivia or watching a movie poolside.

Movies are played both day and night on the big screen! There are also movies inside (at the Buena Vista Theater) you can check out!

Animator's Palate on Disney Dream

Rotating Dining on the Disney Dream

Dining on the Disney Dream is AMAZING. There are three restaurants you will dine at on rotation.

Our favorite is Animator’s Palate.  Your servers will come with you each night and will treat you like you are royalty!

Broadway Style Entertainment

One of the reasons to take a Disney Dream Cruise is the shows you get to see on board the ship.

Each evening, you will get to see a live show that is exclusive to the Disney Cruise Line.

These shows are fabulous. I am talking Broadway caliber! You will not want to miss any of them!

Disney “Beauty and the Beast” is a brand-new musical theater performance inspired by the live-action adaptation of the animated classic. This musical is only shown aboard the Disney Dream!

Character Meet & Greets on a Disney Dream Cruise

So if you do not reserve online or get a ticket, you can't meet Mickey and friends well, ''randomly'?
