Kids Can Enjoy High-Tech Fun and Games Aboard the Disney Dream with Magic PlayFloor

posted on March 22nd, 2011 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


There’s lots of innovation and technology aboard the Disney Dream. Every time I sail, I discover something new that completely “wows” me. I’ve showed you high-tech highlights like AquaDuck and Enchanted Art, but now I want to tell you about Magic PlayFloor – a cruise-industry first that takes interactive gaming to the next level.

When kids jump onto the Magic PlayFloor, they can engage in group activities and games where their movements determine the action on a giant grid of LCD screens. They might scramble around the perimeter to control the tilt of a virtual maze or leap over lasers with favorite Disney characters.

We knew the kids would love it, so we created two versions of the Magic PlayFloor to double the fun – one at Disney’s Oceaneer Club and the other at Disney’s Oceaneer Lab (the youth spaces designed for cruisers ages 3-10).

Children and Youth Counselors step onto the Magic PlayFloor for a fun, interactive gaming experience

Youth counselors also incorporate the Magic PlayFloor into storytelling activities, where kids are immersed into their favorite Disney films. They might fly over the streets of London with Peter Pan, ride ocean waves with Crush from “Finding Nemo” or race around a track like Lightning McQueen from “Cars.”

For ages 3-10? Age discrimination! That looks like super fun for adults too.

We sailed on the Dream back in Jan. on the benefit Preview Cruise. I got to play in the kids area on the docking the ship game and the dance floor. I played the CARS game and got my butt beat bad by all the kids. Another dad and myself gave docking a ship a try and failed bad. Some 7 year old sitting next to us did it in about 2 minutes. I had more fun then the kids. Disney really did a great job on the kids area. Oh yea I almost forgot i had a blast playing in the new hand washers too….

Wow! Kids can do physical exercises while playing games. Good for them.

Right! I don’t want to grow up neither.
