Last week, I posted an article with tips and information about sailing during Star Wars Day at Sea on the Disney Fantasy. There are a total of 8 dates through April, or 8 actual days at sea that include Star Wars characters and activities. My thoughts on the cruise are in the first article, this is a photo and video heavy article about the Star Wars portion of the cruise with photos mostly that I haven't yet posted. All other days were as usual, no Star Wars except for merchandise and films being shown in the Buena Vista Theater. We did not do everything available, like the Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple and Padawan Mind Challenge. But we did quite a bit. Suprisingly missing was any sort of celebrities and insiders touted ahead of time.
We spent 4 nights on the Disney Dream to experience a Disney Cruise Line Very MerryTime Cruise. While I've sailed 6 times with Disney since 1998 (including 3 times in 2014), I have never gone during the holiday season. With so many activities included this year, it was a great time for us to celebrate Christmas in a whole new way! We paid our own way with a Florida Resident discount.
Mickey and Minnie in their Holiday Attire
This was our second time sailing on the Disney Dream cruise ship (the first being a quick 2 night media cruise in 2011). Instead of booking shore excursions for this trip, we chose to splurge at Remy for the champagne brunch, and Palo for dinner. We chose Remy for brunch since they don't require a jacket for men as they do for dinner.
Meeting Characters on the Disney Cruise Line - Princess Anna, Mickey, Jack Sparrow, Daisy and More on Disney Dream
Jeff and I just spent 4 nights on the Disney Dream cruise, this was the first time we'd been on the ship since the 2-night media cruise in 2011. It was great actually experiencing it as guests, combining work and play. We both have cruised a total of 4 times now with the Disney Cruise Line, my first time was in 1998 on the new Disney Magic. The experience has even gotten better through the years! One of our favorite aspects of cruising on the Disney Cruise Line is the character interaction. We didn't spend all of our time meeting characters, but we found quite a few through the 4 nights!
Today's Disney Dream photo article is of the Princess Gathering on the Disney Dream. I'd totally forgotten that the princeses were to be in the lobby until we went to breakfast at the Royal Palace. I left our meal for a few minutes to get photos and video of the princesses - I'm glad I did, since they were gone by the time our breakfast was over.
