We are back from the Disney Dream Christening Cruise and amazed at the luxury of the ship, the fantastic restaurants, and the surprises that one encounters at almost every turn. Disney sure knows what they are doing when it comes to making a dream vacation a magical experience.
The arrival transfers on board Disney’s Magical Express make it easy to get from airport to resort to port to airport. I would suggest you pack the kids’ swimsuits in a carryon bag, as they will be chomping at the bit to get on the Aqua Duck. It can take a bit of time for your luggage to arrive in your stateroom.
Our couple days on board the amazing Christening Celebration had us all feeling like celebrities. And even though Johnny Depp did not join us ( we did brush elbows with Whoopi Goldberg entering an elevator) , we had the most amazing experience and the opportunity to interact with the real stars, Mickey, Minne, Goofy, Pluto, Chip n Dale, Donald, Daisy and all the Princesses who make a Disney Cruise a true red carpet event.
There are plenty of Character appearances to appease even the most die hard Disney Fan. Times are listed on a board in the lobby for those who want to see – or for those who want to avoid.
Adults will find plenty of adult fun and libation in The District, which offers a number of different clubs, with totally different atmospheres. From the frothy and bubbly Pink, the every changing Skyline, the lively and upbeat Evolution, to the sports enthusiasts venue 687 and a few more I’m sure we missed.
Restaurant options are varied, and Disney uses a rotating system, so all guests will have the chance to experience each. You can trust me when I say, you don’t want to miss your chance to dine at any as, typical Disney, things are not always as they appear.
