Fall 2024 Updates to the Disney Dream

Share This!

The Disney Dream will return to Fort Lauderdale this fall with some exciting new changes. First up … the funnel is getting a glow-up with a brand-new Tower Suite. Updates are also coming to the Oceaneer Club, Edge, Vibe, and more. These updates will debut after a drydock period at the end of the summer’s European sailings, with the first post-update sailing departing on October 20, 2024, from Southampton. Read on for details!

Youth Spaces

Marvel WEB Workshop is coming to the Oceaneer Club, Disney’s dedicated youth spaces for cruisers aged 3-10. Recruits will be able to test new suit prototypes, conduct training simulations, and prepare to defend the world. Plus, Avenger “mentors” will put in appearances from time to time to review their work.

The Edge tween club for guests aged 11-14 will move to Deck 5. Along with the move, the club will add a club lounge and dance floor, and access to an outdoor recreational deck space that it will share with Vibe.

Concierge Spaces

The concierge lounge will be updated and expanded into an all-new space inspired by the film “Hercules”. Look for airy details and bright gold touches that call to mind Mount Olympus and its home among the clouds.

Perhaps the biggest ooh-and-ah news … the Dream’s funnel is being retrofitted with a concierge suite. It’s tempting to say this was the driver for the expanded concierge lounge, but there is only one suite and it sleeps 8, so we’re not convinced that was the tipping point. But it is the reason why Edge, formerly located in the funnel on Deck 13, is moving to Deck 5.

The Dream Tower Suite will pay homage to the Dream’s stern character, Sorcerer Mickey, with theming based on the film “Fantasia” and its iconic “Sorcerer’s Apprentice” sequence. Gilt, glitter, and styling in keeping with the Dream’s art deco vibe will be found throughout the stateroom. Look for a carpet that recalls flowing water, a chandelier reminiscent of Mickey’s control of the waves, and a double-height living room with floor-to-ceiling windows that afford you a commanding ocean view of your own.

The 2,030 square-foot Dream Tower Suite will be category 1A, with a private entrance on Deck 13. The suite sleeps 8 in 2 main bedrooms, a library/bedroom, and a children’s room. You’ll find king beds in the main bedrooms and a pull-down queen in the library; bunk beds in the children’s room mean there’ll be no “he kicked me!” complaining.

There will be plenty of space to get ready for a Port Adventure with 4.5 bathrooms that feature a variety of double sinks, stand-alone bathtubs, and walk-in rain showers. The suite also features a large living area including an open dining salon with pantry and wet bar.

New Eats & Spa Refresh

On deck 11, a cantina will join the Quick Service lineup. Expect tacos, burritos, and bowls on the menu. Details were skimpy on the spa updates: “A refreshed check-in area” along with new treatment rooms.
