Disney Dream Ready for Her Closeup

Last week, the Disney Dream arrived in Florida and only two weeks remain until the new ship’s maiden voyage on January 26th.

Aboard the ship, crew members continue making final preparations for her debut, fine-tuning every last detail so that everything’s pixie dusted when guests arrive.

It’s an exciting time filled with anticipation and lots of hard work. For so many, it’s really the culmination of a dream come true, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Meanwhile, back on land, preparations of a different kind are taking place for another exciting event. We can’t have a maiden voyage without a christening, right? It’s a time-honored tradition in the maritime industry and trust me when I say that this one will be spectacular.

Best of all, you’re invited to watch it live!

On Wednesday, January 19th, we’ll be streaming a live webcast of the Disney Dream christening ceremony beginning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern, direct from Port Canaveral in Florida. The program will be available at www.disneycruise.com/dream and here on the Disney Parks Blog.

Don’t miss it!

During the show, we’ll also answer some of your questions about the Disney Dream and Disney Cruise Line, including our 2011 itineraries to the Mexican Riviera and Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder, and to Europe aboard the Disney Magic.

We want to hear from you so put your question in a comment on this blog post, send it via Twitter to @DisneyCruise or write a comment on our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/DisneyCruiseLine.


  • I’ll be there thanks to Good Morning America, ABC & Disney:) I won one of 10 Dream Inaugural Christening Cruise pkgs!! Thanks to all and especially Sam Blum with LeadDog Marketing Group, NYC for his help and James, Event Services Coordinator, Walt Disney World, Florida, for his patience and kindness:)

  • I’m so excited for the christening event. I’m one of the AHS cheerleaders thats going to be performing there. I can’t wait to finally see the beauty in person. Having this invitation & opportunity is amazing. Keep Blogging <|3

  • Who will be the Godmother? Any word on that?!

  • Oh, Will there be any kind of preview open house prior to the Maiden voyage at the Port? We were on the Wonder in August and will be on the Dream in July but would be a Thrill to tour the Dream prior to the Maiden Voyage.

    • Because of our security protocols, we’re unable to offer tours of the Disney Dream. We encourage fans to watch the webcast and check out the great content here on the Disney Parks Blog and on disneycruise.com.

  • We were at the park beside Grills for the arrival of that majestic ship to it’s new home at Port Canaveral and we’ll be there to wish it well on it’s Maiden voyage on January 26th and many more times before our July 24th cruise date.

  • Will the Webcast be posted for viewing later that evening? We are on the Maiden voyage and cannot wait(seems like time is moving to slow), but my daughter will be in school and my husband and I will be at work without computer access. Thanks…

    • We hope to make the full webcast available on demand for a limited time after the christening. We’ll also post highlights at disneycruise.com/dream and the Disney Parks Blog sometime later that day.

  • Is the Dream going out after the christening on a media/travel industry cruise before the preview benefit cruise on the 21st? If so does it leave the port right after or the usual 5:00ish?

  • We will be at Grills or Jetty park to watch her sail out. We’ll have to take the iPad to watch your stream! thanks so much!

    • Hi. The webcast will require a computer or mobile device compatible with Flash. Unfortunately, the iPad and iPhone do not support Flash.

  • poo we are heading to florida that day, but our plane doesn’t get in until noon…i was crossing my fingers until the 20th 🙁 I think we will still stop by and take a peek!:) we are going to titusville for 2 days to spend with my grandad and then off to Disney World! Can’t wait!!!!
