Disney Dream Getting Ready for Guests

I know what you’re thinking.

“Now that the Disney Dream has arrived in Florida, when do we get to see what she looks like inside?”

Here’s a peek at Royal Palace taken while the ship was on her way to Port Canaveral. The beautifully decorated restaurant is right off the atrium lobby on Deck 3.

The dining room is filled with fairy tale details like chandeliers decorated with glass slippers and repeating motifs such as Princess Aurora’s tiara from “Sleeping Beauty” and the enchanted rose from “Beauty and the Beast.”

I spent more than 10 days aboard the Disney Dream as the ship crossed the Atlantic and I’m still amazed at her beauty and the attention to detail lavished everywhere by Walt Disney Imagineering. Here’s a small sample of what Disney Cruise Line guests will find when they step aboard.

Today’s sneak peeks include a wide view of the Art Deco atrium lobby on Deck 3, the first area guests will see when they board. Next, left to right, are Andy’s Room and Monster’s Academy, two wonderfully fun spaces for kids inside Disney’s Oceaneer Club that were inspired by the classic Disney∙Pixar films “Toy Story” and “Monsters, Inc.” And finally, here’s a glimpse of the Rainforest area within the Senses Spa & Salon for adults.

Let me pause here for a public service announcement: Make sure you bring plenty of memory cards for your camera! And batteries! You won’t want to miss a single shot.

Later this week the Disney Dream will host a traditional “plaque and key” ceremony commemorating her first stop at Port Canaveral. Afterward she’ll sail the first of a few preview cruises that will help crew members prepare for the ship’s gala maiden voyage on January 26th.

  • This ship looks great we are hoping to plan a trip in 2013 thru DVC.

  • I am so excited for our cruise on June 7th. We will be visiting Kenneday Space Center on June 6th and then off to a wonderful cruise. I have to navigate around every single day and the pictures are fantastic. I was so excited to go again (we went in 2009 on the Disney Wonder) that I had to invite one of my very good friends who is a single mother and her 10 year old daughter who is best friends with my daughter. She is so excited

  • Can’t wait to sail on 11/27/11. It will be my son’s bithday, and he will be surprised!!!!!!!

  • We sail in April! I love seeing all the pics – it gets me even more excited!

  • Hey, Does anyone know when the keel laying for the Disney “Fantasy” will be? The “Dream” took about 14 months to build and the Maiden voyage of the “Fantasy” is April 2012. Keel Laying Should be pretty soon !!!

  • We set sail Jan. 30! Can’t wait, it’s AMAZING!!!

  • I just wanted to thank you Jonathan for all of your posts on the new Disney Dream. All of the photo’s have been fantastic!!! And, these latest ones are just as great. My wife and I always look forward to seeing your posts. Keep up the GREAT work!!!

  • Jonathan,

    With the new Magical Portholes on the inside cabins, will guests who stay in the outside cabins have a TV channel that will replicate those same portholes?

  • THE ROYAL PALACE IS SO BEAUTIFUL. cALLS FOR A NICE OUTFIT TO WEAR ONBOARD.
    ALL THE NEW SPOTS ONBOARD HAVE GOT TO BE……….WHAT CAN I SAY? ABOVE IMPRESSIVE! I LOOKED FOR THE DREAM AT DOCK THIS A.M. TO SEE……..THE DOCK “EMPTY” NOT TO WORRY AS THE DREAM WAS MOVED TO JETTY PARK TO ALLOW THE WONDER TO DROP HER LAST LOCAL TRIP. GUESSING NOW THE WONDER WILL BID FAREWELL AND OFF TO PANAMA CANAL AND THE WEST COAST.
    GOD SPEED WONDER.
    THEN THE DREAM WILL OCCUPY HER PLACE OF HONOR AT PORT CANAVERAL.
    CAN’T WAIT TO TO BOARD HER IN APRIL.
    WONDERFUL WORK D.C.L.

  • I can’t wait we’re setting sail aboard it on the 16th of August. I am so looking forward to this like you wouldn’t believe… probably the first vacation I have been so excited about I can hardly contain myself.

    From everything I’ve seen of this ship, nothing compares… I’ll probably sit in the atrium of it in just utter shock and awe.

    I’ve never been on a cruise ship, what a better way to get my sea legs so to speak.

  • Wish we didn’t have to wait until May!! I want to go NOW!

  • Me too Mary. We cruise on June 12th. I hope your vacation will be as exciting as ours. Counting down the days.

  • We also look forward to our cruise at the end of this year, in fact the first New Year’s Eve cruise for the dream will be very much anticipated and appreciate when we are aboard. An awesome ship with gorgeous lines of course no one does it like Disney.

  • Every new photo makes me more excited, Feb 13, less than 6 weeks!

  • The Disney Dream looks magnificent.
    So looking forward to sailing on this amazing ship.
    Disney out did themselves again. 🙂

  • I can see why you named it Disney “Dream”! I can’t wait to book a cruise on her!

  • Beautiful! I can’t wait until June to get on this ship.I am counting down the days….

  • Anxious to step aboard in September…

  • It looks so amazing! I want to go to the spa! maybe next year =)

  • Seeing all these pictures makes me even more excited about our upcoming sailing in March!! I want to see some pics of the AquaDuck! My kids can’t wait to ride that slide!

  • Ditto — I would love to see pics of Quiet Cove. Especially the loungers and the new hot tubs that overlook the sides of the ship. 🙂

  • Disney did a terrific job here, we cannot wait to sail this August 25-September 1, on our back to back cruises and looking so forward to cabin 10098.
    Thank you so much, for helping us make more happy memories.
