UPDATE: Disney Dream Christening Webcast

UPDATE: Hi everyone, we are no longer replaying the Disney Dream christening ceremony but you can see some video highlights from celebration as well as some new images in my most recent post.

Live from Port Canaveral in Florida, Disney Cruise Line is holding a spectacular christening ceremony today for the newest ship in our fleet, the Disney Dream. Watch it live here on the Disney Parks Blog or at, starting at 10:30 a.m. Eastern.

It’s another magical milestone in the ship’s journey to her public debut one week from today, when she’ll invite guests aboard for her long-awaited maiden voyage to the Bahamas.

Today’s webcast will include the entire christening event plus material just for those of you watching online. We’ll also answer several questions fans submitted on Facebook, Twitter and the Disney Parks Blog. The webcast requires a computer or mobile device that supports Flash so wherever you are, make sure you’re able to watch it.

Disney Cruise Line wouldn’t be the success it is without the support of our fans all over the world so we’re delighted to share today’s special occasion with you.

Tell us what you thought of the ceremony by adding a comment below. Later today, we’ll post photo and video highlights here on the Disney Parks Blog. Thanks for watching!


  • Very excited for this!

  • I can’t hardly stand it I am so excited… Hoping to be able to be on the maiden voyage of the Disney Fantasy in a little over a year. Wanting to celebrate our 15th year anniversary Disney style plus wanting that honeymoon that was never taken….
    Disney is the most spectacular place on earth … moves me to tears each time we are able to take the kids!

But maybe someday with my grandkids! haha
