May the force be with you—at sea.
Come fall, the 4,000-passenger Disney Dream cruise ship will have a Star Wars: Millennium Falcon themed room geared for kids ages 3-12. Inspired by the spaceship from the hit franchise, the play area in the Oceaneer’s Club will feature games and activities, like a Jedi Training Academy, where the little ones can pick up lightsaber moves. Children can also watch episodes from the new Disney XD animated series, “Star Wars Rebels,” on a big screen, or stop at various gaming stations.
But that’s not all that’s coming to the Dream, when it enters dry dock from Oct. 4 through Oct. 24. You’ll also find a virtual Disney Infinity toy box interactive area, Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats for homemade gelato and freshly baked waffle cones, and a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for dress-up parties. Families can begin experiencing these new amenities come Oct. 26, when the ship kicks off its three-and-four night cruises from Port Canaveral into the Bahamas, sailing throughout 2015 and into 2016.
