5 Disney Dream Activities to Enjoy

All Disney cruise ships are pretty amazing and each has different features that sets it apart from the others in the fleet. Wondering what makes the Disney Dream so impressive? It’s definitely the great Disney Dream activities you’ll get to enjoy.

Top 5 Disney Dream Activities

Kids Midship Detective Agency Game

1. Mickey’s Midship Detective Agency Game

My kids had a blast with Mickey’s Midship Detective Agency Game on board the Disney Dream.

The interactive Mickey’s Midship Detective Agency Game is a game the kids can play while on the ship at their leisure during the course of the cruise.

They register (midship) and get a map and detective badge that helps them interact with artwork throughout the cruise ship.

Each Midship Detective Agency game has guests solve a mystery that involves Disney (or Muppet) characters and hidden clues.

The clues are attached to artwork that comes alive once their Detective badge is used.

The best part of this game is that kids/families can complete the game at their own pace while getting a chance to also explore the cruise ship.

Aquaduck on Disney Dream

2. Disney Aquaduck

With two pools and two slides, the kids will be busy on the main pool deck. One of the top Disney Dream activities for kids is the AquaDuck.

Two people can ride in a 2-seater inner tube on the 765-foot water-coaster ride that takes them on a fun (not scary) around the ship.

The AquaDuck is a one-of-a-kind water ride that not only takes you around the ship but over the ocean for a brief period of time.

There is plenty of dips in this water coaster that make it fun for young and older kids (and their parents too).

3. Funnel Vision Pool Side Movies

There is nothing quite like being able to see movies by the pool on the Funnel Vision screen.

The Disney Dream plays several kid-friendly movies throughout the day and night along with Disney Trivia.

You can also watch newly run movies at Buena Vista Theater!

Sports on the Disney Dream

4. Goofy Sports Deck

When it comes to outdoor sporting activities, Disney Dream has quite a few!

Goofy Sports Deck is filled with fun activities the whole family can enjoy.

Families can play ping pong, shuffleboard, mini golf or even a game of basketball.

5. Beauty & the Beast Live Show

One of the reasons to take a Disney Dream Cruise is that you get to see a live show that is exclusive to the Disney Cruise Line.

Looks like a great family trip! We've been thinking about doing a Disney Cruise. My kids are 9 mos old and 3 yrs old. Do you know of any fun activities for them onboard?

They have an enclosed water area with a Finding Nemo themes for little ones. There is also It's A Small World nursery for children ages 3 months to 3 years. It is $6 per hour for first child and $5 per hour for second child in the same family. Once they are 3, they can go to the Oceaneer club for FREE. They have everything from Dress Up, Storytime with Characters to Group game time with counselors.
