Keeping Disney magic afloat
So while Walt Disney World continues to cultivate its parks for the younger set, the Dream offers an option for travellers who may have outgrown the Magic Kingdom. Once the Dream graduates from Caribbean sailings, it could likely become a more attractive option for cruise-fans as well. And who knows, you just might find your inner child while sipping a piña colada on the lido deck.
How to sail
The Disney Dream (disneycruise.disney.go.com) sails three- and five-night itineraries to the Caribbean and Castaway Cay. Cruise fares vary greatly depending on the date of the cruise and the level of stateroom.
The least expensive accommodation on the Dream, the inside staterooms, fill up fast and are sold out through August. In September, an inside stateroom for a three-night cruise starts at $898 per double occupancy. Starting in April, staterooms with a veranda are available for $1,650 per double occupancy, for a three-night cruise.
Disney's fourth ship, the Disney Fantasy will launch in 2012.
