Disney Cruise Line took delivery of the Disney Dream earlier this month but work is far from over. Now that the ship is officially ours, a new phase of construction has begun. With little more than a week remaining before the ship arrives in Florida, Imagineers and crew members are working around the clock to apply the finishing touches as the ship makes her transatlantic voyage from Germany to Port Canaveral.

What are they working on? Here’s a behind-the-scenes look.


  • How exciting to see the computer generated images of Disney Dream slowly come to life. Hoping to see the the fine detail and ‘finishing touches’ in person really soon.

  • I can’t wait!! February 27th needs to get here quickly!!

  • I love your video! Merry Christmas Disney Dream Imagineers and Cast/Crew. Thanks for working around the clock to make this DREAM come true. Von Voyage, we can’t wait to book our trip on the maiden voyage.

  • Good luck everyone!! And have a magical holiday!!

  • Bon Voyage to all the happy sailors on the maiden voyage of the Dream.
    I hope to see lots of pictures and reports upon your return

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful video, and thank you to all the imagineers and cast/crew members for working so hard on all the finishing touches, especially over the holiday season! Remember your Disney Fans truly appreciate all that you do! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! and see you real soon on the maiden voyage!

  • I love the WDI behind the scenes videos like this. It really shows you the dedication and type of work they do. Appears that there is a different Sorcerer Mickey being used for the WDI logo at the beginning of the video, perhaps a new change? As for the Disney Dream, it looks absolutely fantastic! Thanks for sharing.

  • Apparently, to be an Imagineer, you need to use the phrase “finishing touches” as much as possible 😉

  • 30 days and counting!!! Can’t wait to be on board. The ship looks amazing. I have loved all the sneak peaks but I am sure there is nothing like the real thing.

  • I love the dining chairs in the classic Mickey motif! Where are they located?
