Here are two videos of the Kids Club Area. Just click on the pictures.

You should look at them, they are really neat areas.

Then we left to go to the top decks, on the way there I took a few videos and pictures.

The Disney Dream offers a Spy game, we never played it, but I got a video of one of the picture frames.

We also stopped by the Buenavista Theater. Here is where they play new movies and do special screenings. On our cruise it was all about Planes, Monsters University and a few others. Planes had just come out.





Once upstairs we relaxed for a little while in the adult pool. All 3 of us made great use of the adult area, I think this is one of my favorite adult areas of any ship. It was very relaxing and sheltered from the noise of the adjacent areas. The only issue I had with it was that it was far from our cabin and it required a long walk to get there. I am also curious as to how will this area work in sea days, it seems to me that there might be a problem with space and lounges. But at this point I cant comment on it. All I can say is that while the other two pools were completely packed, this one was a nice piece of heaven to enjoy.

A side story, the pool attendant in that picture was amazing. We saw him there every second we where there it was incredible. He worked none-stop, excellent work ethic! We made sure the he knew that we noticed how hard he works at his job. The thing is that some of the back stage employees don't get the appreciation they deserve, I wish I was able to do more. But in this case since we spend so much time in the pool and saw him so often, we really appreciated the work he did for us. I am sure it helps his morale to know that guests really do notice all the hard work he does for everyone.



Anyway back to the story.





Since my bag was not in the room yet, I just went with my shorts in the Jacuzzi. Sorry I just could not wait, lol. By the way those things are kept crazy hot, the warmest I have experience of any cruise!

At 3:00 pm they hold a raffle in the spa, and everyone that did the tour participates in the raffle. Since we were right there, we decided to go. I was soaking wet so I did not last long there. The minute that I noticed that it was just a speech of all of their services followed by a raffle 40 minutes later, I decided to leave. Sarah however stayed until the end. You have to be there to win, but our names did not get called.

She told me a funny story, one of the massage staff asked "Who here wants to get stoned?" and an old men yelled "ME" and his wife immediately hushed him and told him to stay quiet. lol, by the way the lady was talking about the hot stone massage, not what might be thinking about. So for those thinking that Disney carries ganga, sorry no go folks, lol.







Then Sarah and I went for a little walking tour on the FWD of the ship. Here are the pictures I took.





By the way most bars are usually empty in the Dream, with the bring your own alcohol rule, you can pretty much go and get a drink at a bar within seconds. I guess in way it lacks the bar atmosphere that some people enjoy.











That is the concierge area.

That is the teen pool area, I heard other people saying that should be the adult area, but I would beg to differ. For me it is crucial that I get an ocean view while I am enjoying myself in the pool, and unless they figure how to implement windows down there I am not sure this area would have much appeal to me. None the less is it a very neat little area, I wish I had gone down there that day and seen it in person.











Those showers are a dream!



This is inside the concierge area.

WE went back down to the adult pool area, and I went to the Cove Cafe to get some pictures I also got the menus for Remy and Palo. We never went to those restaurants as I had no intention on dressing up, and I wanted to try all of their 3 rotational restaurants.

After relaxing in the pool for a little while it was almost time for Muster so we started heading to the room to get ready and the Muster. I took a few pictures on the way.











A lot of doors were decorated.





Muster was about average, ours was in the club. Nothing really to point out except that the alarm noise was excruciating loud. They actually tell to cover your ears and even the crew covers theirs. This picture was after muster was done.



For sail away we decided to stay in our balcony. Disney does have a large event by the pool, but as you can imagine it is packed and that is not exactly what I wanted for my cruise. I asked them if they wanted to go, but neither felt like going either. If you want to see the event just look for the video on youtube, type Disney Dream Sail away and you will see the video. I found out that it was a short show followed by a promotional campaign.

Something to note that is that Disney stream most of the events and Show performances live on TV. We found this out on the last day… lol.

I took a short time lapse of our sail away, I think it came out pretty neat. Check it out!



Here are the pics for our sail away. It was your average sail away, Port Canaveral is surprisingly long, I was not expecting that.

They actually went inside before I could get a clear picture, I hope they lasted outside a little longer for the aft balconies to get a view.

Love the trip report thus far. One small clarification, typically it's just the Disney Wonder and the Disney Magic that are referred to as the "Classic" ships. That term being used instead of "older" or "non-new".

Can't wait to read more.

Good to know, is there a term for the newer ships?

After sail away we went up to the lido deck for a little walk, we noticed that they were almost done with the cleaning from the party. We also picked up some food from the pool food station. I have more pictures later on, but basically there are 3-4 stations with food at tall times. Most of the food there was really good, the only one that I did not enjoy was the pizza.










Sarah loved hers.


That was a BLT with brie.
