Disney Dream Atrium Tour

Atrium Splendour: A Grand Entrance To Your Cruise

The atrium is truly the heart of the ship, a central hub where guests gather and embark on their extraordinary journey. It sets the tone for the entire Disney Dream experience, inviting you to leave the ordinary world behind and enter a realm of wonder and excitement.

As you enter the atrium, your eyes are immediately drawn to the sparkling chandelier that hangs from the ceiling, casting a warm and inviting glow. Its intricate design is a work of art, reflecting the elegance and charm of the ship. The chandelier is a symbol of the attention to detail and craftsmanship that can be found throughout the Disney Dream.

The art deco atrium is flanked by stunning sweeping staircases, inviting you to make your grand entrance into the world of Disney magic. Each step you take brings you closer to the adventures that await, creating a sense of anticipation and excitement. The staircases themselves are a sight to behold, with their ornate railings and exquisite detailing.

As you explore the atrium, you’ll discover that it is not just a beautiful space, but also a hub of activity and entertainment. Throughout your cruise, you’ll find character meet and greets, live performances, and interactive experiences taking place here. It’s a place where memories are made and cherished, where dreams come true.

Disney Dream Dining Delights: Main Restaurants

When it comes to dining on a cruise, there’s no shortage of options. But on a Disney cruise, the dining experience is taken to a whole new level. Get ready to indulge in a unique culinary adventure as you rotate through the three main dining rooms each night.

The Royal Palace

The Royal Palace is one of the exquisite options you’ll have the pleasure of dining in. Step into a world themed around Disney royalty, and feel like a prince or princess yourself. The elegant décor, regal ambiance, and impeccable service make every meal here a truly magical experience.

Animator’s Palate

Animator’s Palate is my favourite place to dine onboard the Disney Dream.  The entire restaurant is filled with animated Disney characters, with sketched characters adorning the walls. The dining area features a diverse selection of tables, and the ceiling is adorned with a beautifully lit design resembling an artist’s palette. Can you guess the name of this delightful establishment now? And that’s not all – there’s even a pillar designed to resemble a paintbrush! As you enjoy your meal, you’ll be entertained by the amazing show called Undersea Magic. It’s a lot like the beloved Turtle Talk With Crush experience in EPCOT. Crush himself will visit your table (there are screens conveniently located at the ends of each table) and engage in conversation with you. And when Crush isn’t on the screen, a school of fish will keep you entertained with fun guessing games!

 The bread offering included delectable Garlic and Herb Focaccia Bread, perfectly complemented with butter and a delightful roasted garlic dip. Without a doubt, this was the absolute highlight among the three exceptional dining venues! While the rolls were satisfactory, it was the roasted garlic dip that truly stole the show. It surpassed all expectations with its exquisite creaminess and bold garlic flavour, reminiscent of a high-end rendition of Papa John’s renowned garlic sauce. We were so enthralled by its enticing taste that we found ourselves meticulously scraping every last drop from the bowl. Speak with one of our cruise team to start your Disney Cruise Line holiday.

Enchanted Garden

Our last restaurant was the Enchanted Garden.  The restaurant has been beautifully crafted to resemble an Arboretum in Versailles, with elegant white trellises and stunning fountains.

 The shift in lighting between day and night adds a fantastic element to the atmosphere! On one evening, I indulged in a generous portion of prime rib that was prepared to perfection. While it didn’t surpass our expectations for the most remarkable steak we’ve ever had, it was undeniably delicious. What made the meal truly special were the delightful accompanying vegetables. The double baked potato served alongside was a pleasant departure from the typical mashed potatoes usually paired with this type of meat, and the addition of horseradish enhanced the overall flavour. We believe this dish is sure to please a large gathering of people!

Each dining room offers a unique menu filled with mouth-watering options. From fresh seafood to delectable desserts, there’s something to please every palate. And the best part? You don’t have to choose just one dish. Feel free to indulge in multiple courses and explore new flavours.

The rotation between dining rooms adds an element of surprise and excitement to each evening. You never know where you’ll be dining next, but you can be sure that it will be a remarkable experience. Each room has its own theme and atmosphere, ensuring that every night feels like a brand new adventure.

Disney Dream Staterooms Review

Disney Cruise Line ships, including the Disney Dream, offer a variety of stateroom options to cater to different preferences. These options include Concierge, Oceanview with Verandah, Oceanview, and Inside staterooms. Each category comes with its own unique set of features and amenities, allowing you to choose the one that suits your needs and desires perfectly. Not only that, but each stateroom category also comes with its own price point, ensuring that there is something available for every budget. So, let’s explore these fantastic options and find the perfect stateroom for your unforgettable cruise experience! 

Experience unparalleled luxury and extravagance in the magnificent Concierge Suites aboard the remarkable Disney Dream. These opulent accommodations can comfortably accommodate parties of 5 to 7 guests, providing you with abundant space to unwind and rejuvenate. As an added bonus, each suite boasts a delightful veranda, allowing you to relish in some much-needed serenity. Moreover, indulge in the exceptional privilege of being attended to by our devoted Concierge Service, ensuring that your every desire is fulfilled during your stay in these remarkable suites.

Discover the incredible variety of Oceanview Staterooms, each offering a unique experience. Choose the category that includes verandahs or balconies, allowing you to soak up the breathtaking ocean views. These accommodations provide ample space for your utmost comfort, even though they are technically single rooms unlike the Concierge Suites. Depending on your preferences, Oceanview Verandah rooms can comfortably accommodate 3 to 5 guests, ensuring a memorable stay for everyone.

The Oceanview Staterooms offer a similar experience to the Oceanview Staterooms with Verandahs, although they may be more compact (and of course, don’t come with verandahs!). Instead of a balcony, guests can admire the breath-taking ocean views through a porthole.

If you don’t prioritise having a balcony or a view of the ocean, then an Inside Stateroom could be the perfect choice for you. These inside cabins are situated within the ship’s interior, which means they don’t have any exterior walls or windows – and consequently, they lack natural sunlight. However, fear not, as there are virtual portholes called “Magical Portholes” that provide live views of the magnificent sea. Moreover, you never know what surprises await you, such as spotting your beloved Disney character or even a swashbuckling pirate ship passing by.
