5 Reasons a Disney Cruise is a Dream Come True

Today we’re sharing 5 reasons a cruise aboard the Disney Dream is a dream come true. Take a look!

1. It’s the perfect option for a land and sea vacation. A short cruise aboard the Disney Dream is best when combined with a visit to the theme Parks. The Disney Dream departs from Port Canaveral, Florida, less than an hour drive from Walt Disney World® Resort, so you can easily extend your 3- or 4-night cruise into a week-long Disney vacation.

2. All Disney Dream cruises visit Disney’s dreamy private island, Castaway Cay. The views on Castaway Cay are like something out of a movie with pristine white-sand beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters. The best part is that this sliver of paradise is fitted with everything you need for a day at the beach, including lounge chairs, umbrellas, hammocks, water activities and an all-you-care-to-eat lunch buffet.

3. You’ll be enchanted by a tale as old as time in a whole new way. Exclusively on the Disney Dream, “Beauty and the Beast” is the newest Disney Cruise Line musical to hit the stage aboard this ship. The production was developed by a team of talented Broadway artists who adapted the story for the stage with innovative puppetry, cutting-edge theatrical design and breakthrough story-telling techniques.

4. Everyone in the family will be entertained. Like all Disney ships, the Disney Dream has venues and activities designed specifically for each member of the family. While the kids are piloting the Millennium Falcon and making new friends in the youth spaces, the grown-ups can live it up in The District – a playground just for adults in the evenings. Of course, there’s a ton for the family to do together, too, like deck parties, live shows and the thrilling AquaDuck water coaster.

5. There are plenty of ways for you to treat yourself. Whether you indulge in fine dining at Remy and Palo, a luxurious treatment at Senses Spa or a decadent dessert at Vanellope’s, you can spoil yourself and your loved ones all day long. To surprise the kids with something extra-special, book an appointment at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for a princess, knight or pirate makeover so they can feel like the royalty they truly are!

Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

Come Hang Out at Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland Park

Are you looking for the COOLEST and HIPPEST new spot to hang out at the Disneyland® Resort? Then be sure to fly on over to the planet of Batuu to visit the Black Spire Outpost, where you’ll find a fun cantina hidden away among the streets of the outpost. Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is the notorious watering hole where smugglers, bounty hunters, and weary travelers of all ages can come partake in some out of this world refreshments.

When you step inside, you’ll be greeted with the musical stylings of DJ R-3X (also known as DJ REX), the former Starspeeder 3000 pilot droid you first met in Star Tours. With his quirky banter and rad beats, you’re sure to have a good time as you partake in concoctions made from unique “otherworldly” ingredients from across the galaxy.

One of these concoctions is the Hyperdrive (Punch It!) – a non-alcoholic specialty beverage featuring Powerade Mountain Berry Blast, white cranberry juice, black cherry purée, and Sprite. Or sip on the Jabba Juice, a yummy beverage featuring Simply Orange with pineapple, kiwi, cantaloupe, and blueberry popping pearls. For the adults, the Fuzzy Tauntaun is a delicious concoction with peach vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice with tangerine, pure cane sugar, and “buzz button tingling” foam. And while you’re partaking in these refreshing treats, you can even munch on some Batuu Bits for a light and crispy galactic snack.

To make your trip planning easier, Oga’s Cantina now offers advance reservations, which are highly recommended because walk-in opportunities are limited. Soon, Oga’s Cantina (as well as Savi’s Workshop) will follow the 60-day reservation process currently offered for restaurants and experiences requiring reservations.

To make reservations, visit the Disneyland.com/Cantina or contact your Vacations with Character® Travel Agent to book your next adventure to Disneyland and don’t forget to ask about adding a pit stop at Oga’s Cantina! And if California is in a galaxy too far, far away, ask about the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge coming to Walt Disney World on August 29, 2019!

Disney’s Riviera Resort and the Elegance of the European Riviera

A Special Report From Disney Travel News!

Courtesy of Disney Destinations
Courtesy of Disney Destinations

For centuries, the European Riviera has inspired visitors to relax, rejuvenate and play along the Mediterranean. At Disney’s Riviera Resort, projected to open December 2019, the history and charm that enchanted Walt and Lillian Disney, and so many others, comes alive.

In each meticulous detail and around every turn, you will see how Imagineers are creating a resort that celebrates the elegance of a modern European retreat blended with a touch of old-world glamour and a uniquely Disney twist. Here’s a closer look at the careful planning and thoughtful features that make Disney’s Riviera Resort so special.

Courtesy of Disney Destinations

The overall design of Disney’s Riviera Resort is inspired by the elegant, early 20th century hotels situated along Europe’s Mediterranean coast. Like the region itself, Disney’s Riviera Resort will convey classic European designs mixed with modern expressions.

Its articulated stone base and smooth stucco façades will be accented with decorative metalwork and colorful awnings. French mansard roofs and Italian style arches and loggias will intermingle with other architectural styles found along the coastal region.

The center tower, with expressive roofs and ornamental details, will be at the heart of the resort. Adjacent wings are designed as if added progressively to accommodate more travelers. The resort itself is a layered story, inspired by the buildings and architecture in Europe that grew and evolved over time.

Courtesy of Disney Destinations

Each wing of the resort will grow in height, from eight to 10 stories, allowing for sweeping views of the resort to be seen from the rooftop restaurant, Topolino’s Terrace – Flavors of the Riviera. If this sounds tantalizing, I should mention that bookings are now open for Topolino’s Terrace, with reservations available beginning on December 16!

Porticos, towers and terraces, as well as a unique, coastal-inspired color palette, will give each resort wing an exterior style all its own – a visual representation of the changes in design styles that influenced regional resorts throughout the century.

The window styles will vary across the façade of the resort, with variations in size, shape and mullion designs. Continuing the inspired architectural details, the iconic window awnings of the region will be married with shutters of varying colors and arrangements. A variety of decorative railings throughout the resort will feature a subtle Disney twist, with motifs of Mickey Mouse and his leading lady, Minnie.

Photo Courtesy of Disney Destinations

By incorporating these detailed differences into the design, Imagineers captured the progressive feeling of European architecture, imparting a sense of history and story that developed over time.

Under construction and projected to open December 2019, Disney’s Riviera Resort at Walt Disney World Resort will be inspired by Europe and imagined by Disney. Another perk: from the resort, you will be able to stay just a gondola ride away from all the excitement and experiences via the new Disney Skyliner system when it opens this fall!

Bookings for Disney’s Riviera Resort are open now so contact one of our amazing Travel Professionals to book this amazing resort for your next stay and create your Disney story in the middle of the magic! www.vacationswithcharacter.com

You’ll will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, you’ll be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer — but don’t worry — with the help of some heroes of the Resistance, you’ll break out and in the process, escape the Star Destroyer and protect the secret base, but you must stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren!

Rise of the Resistance will join Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run in the all new Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – a new land now open in Disneyland and coming soon on August 29, 2019 in Walt Disney World.
