THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW
A Disney Cruise Vacation may seem like a far-off dream, but with a little planning, your Disney vacation on the Dream can become a reality.
MICKEY MOUSE -INSPIRED COLORS
The Disney ships are painted with a black hull, white superstructure, yellow trim and two giant red funnels, each with the Disney Cruise Line Mickey Mouse logo.
EACH SHIP HAS 5 CAPTAINS
Disney ships are the only cruise ships to have five captains – the ship’s captain, Captain Mickey, Captain Minnie, Captain Hook and Captain Jack Sparrow.
Guests can mail a special souvenir message to family and friends back home by using the Castaway Cay Post Office.
Disney Cruise Line ships use the iconic first seven notes of the “When You Wish Upon a Star” song melody as their horn signals.
"WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR"
FIREWORKS AT SEA
On a special night aboard most Disney cruises, the “Pirates IN the Caribbean” deck party features a spectacular pyrotechnics performance – fireworks at sea like only Disney can do!
Disney was granted special permission from the U.S. Coast Guard to paint the lifeboats yellow, to keep with the special color theming of the ship.
MOVIE RELEASES AT SEA
Disney is the only cruise line to first-run feature films, including films in 3-D, with movies premiering at sea on the same day that they are released on land.
Don’t worry about getting a chill! The swimming pools on Disney ships are heated when the water temperature drops below 75 degrees.
