This was a little get away for my wife and myself. And our first Thanksgiving without children (our youngest is now 19 and too cool for us). We have been on four previous Disney cruises, and this was our second on the Dream. We flew in ... Read more

I have always wanted to do a cruise and we enquired in our travel agents, and they had a great deal on sailing for 7 nights and staying in Animal Kingdom for 6 nights, with an overnight stay on International Drive for our 1st night ... Read more

One of the advantages of our recent move to Florida is to take advantage of the easy access to ports for quick weekends away. With our birthdays bracketing the recent weekend, we chose to celebrate the two of us on the Disney Dream. ... Read more

My Daughter had always wanted to go on a Disney cruise and although we had cruised before on Carnival and loved it, I decided to take the plunge and take her on a Disney Cruise. The Disney Dream was beautiful, but I honestly cannot say I ... Read more

Our waiters were great. The food at dinner was ok it just didn't have enough flavor to it. It was a little slow getting our food, and I wish we had the earlier dining. I would suggest ordering your desert the same time as our meal this ... Read more

Overall, we loved this cruise! Although the weather didn't cooperate (Hurricane Matthew), Disney bent over backwards to give us the vacation we hoped for. From changing the cruise destinations to providing a free night on the ship, they ... Read more

We have been on previous Disney Cruises, and this trip did not disappoint. We traveled during Hurricane Matthew. While DCL was not responsible for the beautiful weather we had, the captain and his staff were responsible for the ... Read more

Do NOT waste your money on a Disney Cruise!!! I thought it would be a spectacular trip, but to my dismay, it was an overpriced joke! We were moved staterooms last minute...after specifically picking the state room that we wanted (which ... Read more

This was my first ever cruise. Family of 4 (kids 2 and 6). Embarkation: Not too bad, but we were very rushed. Our time to get on the ship was close to 2 pm which I think was the latest group time assigned. That left almost no time to ... Read more

Disney standards are second to none. The food and service were exceptional. We were worried about having too many children on the cruise with it being Disney but there are so many adult only areas that we had plenty of time to ourselves. ... Read more

My husband and I have always been big Disney fans. A friend of mine couldn't believe that we had never been on a cruise, let alone a Disney cruise. So in 2011 I convinced my husband that we should try a four night on the Dream. Well now ... Read more
