Disney Dream Launches First-ever Disney Infinity Gameplay at Sea

posted on November 5th, 2015 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line

For the first time ever, cruisers are enjoying Disney Infinity gameplay on the high seas. The new Disney Infinity game room opened in Disney’s Oceaneer Club aboard the Disney Dream last week, bringing characters and stories to life in a whole new way for children.


The signature experience in this play area is a life-sized Disney Infinity base that transports players into the Toy Box. Standing on the base, you become a virtual Disney character controlling actions on the giant video screen.


Gaming stations around the room offer children more opportunities for individual and group adventures in the Toy Box. One of the coolest parts about playing Disney Infinity on the Disney Dream is the virtual toys and environments exclusive to Disney Cruise Line. Here’s a look at some of the special toys and environments Disney Infinity created just for Disney cruisers …

After the cruise, you can use your child’s Oceaneer band to download this content for play on Disney Infinity at home. Gaming as Mickey in his race-car-style cruise ship is sure to be a great memento of your fun on the Disney Dream! And while onboard, don’t forget to take your child’s photo in front of the sculptures of Mickey and his pals on display in the Oceaneer Club.

Top Five New Spaces on the Disney Dream

posted on November 3rd, 2015 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line

Just last week we debuted brand-new spaces on the Disney Dream, including the first-ever play area on a Disney ship themed to Star Wars. I was lucky enough to be on the cruise and see the many smiling faces as guests enjoyed all of the new experiences. Guests who have sailed on the Disney Dream before will notice transformed details all around ship; here are five spaces that stand out to me:


Star Wars: Millennium Falcon – May the Force be with you in this super cool spacecraft! The fun here is an out-of-this-galaxy experience for young Jedi hopefuls.


Disney Infinity – Exciting virtual experiences and immersive group activities make this high-tech gaming room unlike any other. There’s even a chance to become one of your favorite Disney characters on the big screen.


Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats – New flavors of handmade gelato and ice cream are offered every day at this sweet shop. Plus, the sundae served in a trophy cup, made with eight heaping scoops of ice cream, is perfect for the family to share.


Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique – Calling all princesses! Your magical makeover awaits in this very special salon, which also transforms cruisers of all ages into swashbuckling pirates on Pirate Night.


Satellite Falls – Exclusive to adults. Peace and quiet. Need I say more? This new water feature is the perfect hangout for those wanting a little rest and relaxation away from the kids.

Over the next several weeks, we’ll be sharing more details about the fun taking place in these new spaces. Stay tuned!
