Behind The Scenes: New Disney Dream Experiences

posted on March 31st, 2010 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line

What do you get when you mix technological innovation with Disney’s creative imagination and set it out to sea? Short and simple – the Disney Dream cruise ship! We recently took a trip to the secret labs of Walt Disney Imagineering and got a behind-the-scenes glimpse at some amazing new experiences in development for the Disney Dream.

Enchanted Art

As you walk around the Disney Dream, pay close attention the artwork hanging from the walls. You see what appears to be traditional framed art (photos, oil paintings, etc.) may actually be Enchanted Art. These special pieces of art will magically come alive when you stop to admire the artwork.

Detective Game

Walt Disney Imagineering is also working on a really cool concept for an interactive adventure game that uses Enchanted Art and spans the entire Disney Dream. Equipped with a special detective device, guests will travel through the ship revealing secret clues hidden within the Enchanted Art to solve a mystery.

Interactive Play-Floor

Just for kids, we’re adding a super-cool interactive play-floor in Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Lab. The interactive play-floor allows children to participate in games and activities as their movements control the action on the floor. Thanks to this new technology, story time will be even more fun as kids feel like they are flying over the streets of London with Peter Pan or riding the ocean waves with Crush.

Forget about “Just for Kids”, there should be one of those interactive play floors for those kids-at-heart who are too old to get into the Oceaneer Club and Lab.

We have booked our holiday on the “Dream” and we look forward to every release of information on this magical vesselthat Disney are creating. We cannot wait as Disney reveals more and our cruise gets closer. I hope as mentioned above that Disney will have magical adventures for the adults and the older children.

Four days is no longer enough… I sense more cruises in our future to experience all that the Dream has to offer!
