If you want the definition of “Living the dream”, taking a voyage aboard the Disney Dream Cruise Ship would definitely fit the bill. Having been on our bucket list, going on a Disney cruise was a dream come true (pun intended) which is why I was so grateful to have been invited the Disney Social Media Moms Conference. Each and every one of us were super excited about our Disney Cruise that we even had matching t-shirts (which is not something we typically do, LOL).

Family aboard the Disney Dream

Magic, luxury, fun for all ages – here are five reasons why we loved our time aboard the Disney Dream and why any family would want to book a Disney Dream Cruise:

The Disney Dream Cruise Ship

#1: Accommodations Fit For a King

Whether you’re traveling with a small group or bringing the entire extended family, there’s a stateroom on board the Disney Dream that will suit your needs. A standard stateroom sleeps 3 to 4 people and includes a “Magical porthole”, which is an LCD screen showing a live feed of the ship with magical surprises added, like Disney characters floating by!

For 3 to 5 guests, a deluxe family oceanview stateroom is just the ticket, with a great view through one to two porthole windows with seating built in. If you prefer more space, perhaps a stateroom with a private verandah is more your style; or go full luxury with a concierge oceanview stateroom and enjoy 306 square feet of comfort.

#2: Show-Stopping Entertainment

With nightly performances of musicals, taking a Disney Dream cruise means that you can enjoy live shows worthy of Broadway from the high seas! Sing along to shows like Beauty and the Beast and Disney’s Believe, an original story about a father and daughter reconnecting thanks to a little help from some beloved Disney friends. My husband (who isn’t a fan of musicals) was extremely impressed by the shows, especially Beauty and the Beast.

#3: Once-in-a-Lifetime Experiences

There is so much to do on a Disney Dream cruise that you will never be bored for a minute. The smallest members of the family will be entertained at the “It’s a small world” nursery; for kids aged 3 to 12 years old, the Oceaneer Club offers experiences with their favorite Disney Characters, from the Disney Infinity Game Room to crafting with Tinker Bell. Kids can pay a visit to Star Wars: Millennium Falcon and train like a Jedi, stop by for playtime with Mickey and friends, or have a dance party with Lilo and Stitch! Or perhaps your little princess would like to stop by the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and get a makeover from their very own Fairy Godmother? Meanwhile, Edge and Vibe offer the coolest activities for tweens and teens, like dancing, karaoke and pizza parties!

And lest you think this cruise was all about the kids, think again – there is and adults-only section on the ship, The District, where grownups can kick back and enjoy drinks, dance, and watch live sports while their children are enjoying all the kid-friendly activities on board. And the whole family will delight in watching first-run Disney movies, attending deck parties, splashing in one of the three pools, and riding the AquaDuck water coaster!

#4: Dining Worthy of Lumière

If you want to enjoy French cuisine that would make Lumière himself say sacrè bleu, then you won’t want to miss Remy, the adults-only restaurant where you can experience a Champagne brunch and other gourmet gastronomical experiences. Or perhaps you’d like to sip a handcrafted cocktail at Skyline? Meanwhile, families will enjoy dinner and a show at Animator’s Palate and enjoy a feast worthy of a Disney Princess at Royal Palace.

#5: Magical Destinations

Aside from all of the entertainment you’ll find on board a Disney Dream cruise, you’ll also enjoy stopping at top vacation spots with ports of call at the Bahamas and Castaway Cay, which is Disney’s own private island!
