We can’t even begin to tell you how fabulous our weekend getaway on The Disney Dream was! We started off by catching an early afternoon flight into MCO. We used a shuttle service and stayed overnight in Port Canaveral for the evening. The receptionist at the hotel suggested a great local place to grab a bite and we weren’t disappointed! We hit up the Preachers Pub, shared some appetizers, drinks and laughs, then Ubered back to the hotel and got a good night’s sleep!
The next morning, the shuttle showed up on time, drove us the 5 minutes it took to get to the ship, and before we knew it, we were ready to board! After being announced like royalty, we were escorted to The Enchanted Garden for a yummy lunch. Our staterooms were ready by 1:30 and we headed to room 6053, or 6035 or 5063, something like that. 😉 Thank goodness for the Navigator app, I had to keep texting the girls to ask what our room number was! I finally wised up and took a picture of it, 6530, phew! 🙂
Friday night we toured every inch, space, nook and cranny of the ship! I must say I was so incredibly impressed with the kids clubs! The Millennium Falcon was so cool and I don’t know anything about Star Wars! The Aqua Duck and the pool are like a child’s dream come true! What I truly can’t get over is the amount of adult only spaces on board! Pools, sundecks, hot tubs, bars, clubs and lounges all sans kids! That night we had Dinner at Palo, one of the adult restaurants on the Dream. This is a MUST! It was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had. The littles won’t mind hanging out in The Oceaneer Club at The Millennium Falcon, Pixie Hollow, Disney Infinity Game Room, or Andy’s Room while you have some adult time!
Saturday morning had us up bright and early as we woke in Nassau! After breakfast and our pre-scheduled princess meet and greet, we headed out, hopped in a cab and made our way over to the Comfort Suites, Paradise Island and after that the brand new Baha Mar! I will leave you wondering about those two properties for another day. 😉 Back to the ship for the halloween party and the pirate party! Fireworks on the ship! Need I say more? Later we headed to The District, an area on the ship for the adults only. We spent the evening there, grabbing a drink in the Skyline Bar and took part in a hilarious show in the club!
Sunday we slept a bit later, had a leisurely breakfast at Cabanas, then off the ship to Castaway Cay. A little walk then a short tram and we found ourselves on the playful family beach! There was certainly no shortage of chairs or umbrellas here! We did an inspection, took lots of pictures, took in the vibe then headed over to Serenity Bay. It’s like a whole other world! Very quiet, relaxing and chill! We rented floats and drifted in the Caribbean for a while before heading to Cookies for a bbq lunch. Everything was perfect. Soon it was time to head back to the ship, and get our spa on! We were able to relax in the hot tub looking out of the floor to ceiling glass windows as we pulled out of port saying goodbye to Castaway Cay.
It was hard to believe this was our last night on the beautiful Disney Dream! We packed up our luggage and enjoyed a very “animated” dinner in Animator’s Palate – it’s not every day that the room “comes to life” around you! Then we headed to the on board shops to do some last minute shopping. It made me wonder… just how much can I fit in my suitcase?
The next morning it was time to leave the Dream and head back to reality, no fun. But as we rode the shuttle to the airport, sadness was quickly replaced by excitement when we started planning our next Disney cruise! It was JUST THAT FABULOUS!! Hope to see you on the SEA!!
