Cool Photo Comparison of Dream & Fantasy

While I was on USA Today's site checking out the article about DCL re-routing the Dream and Fantasy, I came across this comparison. Many have asked about specific differences between the two ships, so I thought I'd share the link:

Thanks for the link. I knew there were differences but it helps to have pictures.

I'm kinda curious how the two ships have sequential hull numbers when they were built years, and multiple ships for other lines, apart. Did MW start both hulls at the same time for that purpose?

My hunch is it's because both ships were ordered at the same time.

Picture 84, where did they get that name? Kind of close to Evolution, I guess.

On the Disney Dream, the dance club is called Metamorphosis. It features fiber-optic butterfly wings in its ceiling that change color.
They also said Royal Court is on the Dream and the Fantasy.

They cut the steel for the Fantasy while they were doing the steel for the Dream. They actually started constructing the blocks for the Fantasy in a seperate building, then moved them to the same one where the Dream was built when that cleared out. That is how the Fantasy was "built" so much quicker than the Dream once the keel was put in place.

I also noticed they had the royal suites on the Dream on deck 11. I thought all the suites were on deck 12.

I saw that too and thought it was kinda neat considering WDW has two steam engines whose serial numbers are one right after another.

The royal suites are on deck 12, but there are some V's and T's on deck 11.
