7 Tips for Enjoying A Trip on Disney Dream

Not only did I have the wonderful opportunity to sail onboard Disney Cruise Line’s newly reimagined Disney Dream with my fiancée, I also had the chance to revisit the ship just weeks later with my parents as well. Now having sailed on the ship for seven evenings across a three- and a four-night sailing, I’ve compiled a list of tips to make the most of your experience on the magical vessel.Book a Cabin on Deck 5 Forward or AftI was blown away by the generously sized balcony of our deluxe family oceanview stateroom with veranda (cabin 5160) near the stern of the ship on deck five. Most of the cabins onboard are situated on decks that pinch in from the overall width of the ship’s hull to minimize structural weight up high and maximize overall stability, but those on deck five forward and aft from the kids facilities and Buena Vista Theatre stretch across the full width of the ship for extra-long cabins that should be prized for their expanded real estate.Ride the AquaDuck on Port Days One thing I noticed on both sailings is that no matter when you ride the popular AquaDuck water coaster, there is a longer line for it on the Disney Dream than on the Disney Fantasy.

A solution: get in a shorter line on a port day when a large amount of passengers are ashore.Don’t Worry About Waiting for the Walt Disney TheatreThe Walt Disney Theatre doesn’t open its doors for evening performances until 30 minutes prior to showtime.

Use that precious time to go shopping or enjoy a drink to the tune of great live music instead.Arrive for Dinner at Your Designated TimeYou might be seeing a recurring theme here, but I was shocked to see such a long line ahead of meal times at the ship’s signature rotational dining rooms prior to
