Teens Rule Aboard the Disney Cruise Line Ships

posted on August 10th, 2011 by Jonathan Frontado, Disney Cruise Line


There comes a time in every family vacation when teenagers want to get some time to hang out with other teens.

On the Disney Cruise Line ships teens have access to exclusive hangouts designed specially for them. These trendy areas offer an elite getaway for them to create their own vacation agenda – whether socializing with new friends, playing the latest video games, experiencing cutting-edge technology or just chilling out.

On the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder the teen club sits in a primo location, right inside the forward funnel of the ship. The space is decorated like an upscale New York loft filled with technology gadgets and fun activities.

Vibe Aboard Disney Cruise Line Ships

On the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy (premiering March 31, 2012), the teen club is located in the forward-most section of the ship. The chic space features indoor and outdoor areas filled with every must-haves for every teen.

We recently sent Andi, from the Walt Disney World Moms Panel, on a mission to bring us a report of Vibe aboard the Disney Dream. Check it out.

Disney Fanatics Receive a Dream-Inspired Backyard

posted on June 20th, 2011 by Tony Shepherd, Producer, Broadcast Marketing


From your enthusiastic response, we’re thrilled to see how much you’ve enjoyed the first two episodes of “My Yard Goes Disney”. The inspiration for tonight’s backyard makeover didn’t come from Walt Disney World Resort…or Disneyland Resort, for that matter. This week’s episode took its cue from the biggest “dream” of all: the Disney Dream cruise ship.

The Farrell Family Receives a Disney Dream-Inspired Backyard Makeover

Tonight’s lucky family is the Farrells. They’re all Disney, all the time, on land and at sea. They told the show’s producers they have 3,000 Disney related family pictures, with 600 from their Disney Dream cruise in January alone! They were on the ship in its first month of sailing on a cruise that they describe as “the most amazing four days of their lives.”

What I think you’ll find amazing is the truly extraordinary backyard the designers built for them. You know by now that I love to bring you sneak peeks, so check it out. Mickey Mouse-shaped pool, anyone?

The Farrell Family Receives a Disney Dream-Inspired Backyard Makeover

The episode required filming with the family aboard the Disney Dream in the luxurious staterooms, Senses Spa & Salon, Palo and even on the AquaDuck water attraction. It was a tough assignment. (See? I told you I have the best job at Disney Parks).

Speaking of the AquaDuck, we developed this incredibly cool camera mount just for this attraction and captures in-the-moment reaction of the family riding. Check it out in tonight’s episode.

Here’s one more picture. The show’s designers created a cool backyard addition inspired by a statue at a Disney destination other than the Disney Dream. Who has the first correct guess?
