Captain Mickey and all of us at Disney Cruise Line cordially invite you to what promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime celebration for our new ship, the Disney Dream.

On Wednesday, January 19th – tomorrow! – we’ll stream a live webcast of the ship’s spectacular christening ceremony to all our fans on the Internet. The show will start at 10:30 a.m. Eastern, direct from Port Canaveral in Florida, where the Disney Dream calls home.

You can watch it at www.disneycruise.com/dream and right here on the Disney Parks Blog. Flash is required so make sure you’re watching from a compatible computer or mobile device.

The webcast will show the entire ceremony, including a special appearance by the godmother of the Disney Dream. Can you guess who it’ll be? It’s a dream come true for someone very special to Disney Cruise Line.

Be sure to watch for the last big sneak peek before the Disney Dream sails her maiden voyage to the Bahamas on January 26th!


  • I presume this isn’t 10:30am G.M.T.?

  • Could it be Jennifer Hudson?

    Hoping you all will provide a replay later as I shouldn’t/can’t watch from work. 😉

  • I would love it to be Whoppi Goldberg 🙂

  • Tinker Bell – the cat was let out of the bag two posts earlier!

    As a former crew member on the Magic, it’s very exciting to see the Dream become a reality…

    But why is Capt Mickey no longer wearing his red jacket / black pants? That looked so much more majestic, and was a good reflection of the ship’s colour scheme and also of Mickey’s standard black tux/tails with red pants… The blue jacket / white pants (as well as the other characters’ redesigned nautical outfits) just aren’t doing it for me!

  • is it tinker bell?

  • Oops- my bad. Just read the other post again and Tinker Bell was the Godmother for the Wonder…

    So my guess is one of the Princesses, most likely Snow White or Cinderella… Or Minnie?

  • Is the Godmother of the Disney Dream “Whoopi Goldberg” ??
    The Disney Dream looks abosulutely spectacular……wish I were going ♥

  • I am so excited about the ship!!! Just 536 more days till I get to go!!! I do have one question… when will we get to see Goofy’s Sports deck? You have shown so many wonderful pictures… I can’t wait to see the sports area. Will that be one of the future features?

  • The Godmother? Julie Andrews??? 😉

  • Hey !
    Can I watch the live webcast from France ?
    Thanks !

  • Cannot wait to go in November!!! My first cruise.

  • Perhaps it will be Cinderella. The ships horn plays, A dream IIs A Wish Your Heart Makes, from that movie and sung by Cinderella.

  • I am SO excited for the christening of this new ship! It looks absolutely gorgeous, and I know that Disney will introduce her to the world in GRANDEST of ways! Jonathan, will they be showing the christening throughout the day? I am unable to watch, due to work and school 🙁

  • It says 10:30 am Eastern

  • It has to be Whoopi. She would be the best godmother!

  • I cant see it will it be on YouTube

  • I was on the Magic last year and had a blast! Can’t wait to be a repeat cruiser on one of the new ships! As for the godmother, what about the real godmother? From cinderella?

  • Can we go there and watch from there?

  • I wonder if the godmother of the ship will sail on the maiden voyage?? I am booked on it–leaving in 1 week—so excited!!!!

  • I’m booked on the 2 nd cruise. Waiting for the fun to BEGIN !!!!!!

  • Want to go on a Disney Cruise? I do, so excited about all the magic going on with Disney
    What a great way to enjoy family, Live the Disney Lifestyle….

  • Oaooo!!! Splashtacular!!!!!
    My best wishes for a Disney Dream!!

  • What time does the Disney Dream leave Port Canaveral today? A bunch of us who live in CapeCanaveral and Cocoa Beach want to see her off.
