    Going on the Dream for 3rd time in July. Any ideas for "lesser known" areas/activities? We have 2 boys- 12 & 8. In the past, been lucky & got cabana at Castaway, love Remy & Senses, also really like family games in DLounge. Thanks for

    Ahoy, Kimberly! 

    Our family is going on the Dream this July as well!  One of our favorite activities to do together is the Midship Detective Agency. You sign up for this on Deck 5. There is also a ship's wheel near the sign up booth on Deck 5 where you "drive" the ship in the painting!

    If you have never ordered warm cookies with milk from room service before bed, you definitely need to try it! Or, order a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar to your room and then walk to the large portholes outside the theater on Deck 5 to "hang out". These portholes are also great to get away from everyone and relax.

    Watch the Daily Navigator for animation drawing classes or towel folding demonstrations. This is a favorite of my youngest. Also, if you haven't ever just "wandered" around, there are lots of treasures to be found! (On my last cruise on the Dream, we found the accessible entrance to Vibe!). And, the view from Meridian is worth the walk there!

    Your family can take a walk down to 687, near the adult district, and play a board game. There are TONS of family favorite games there that you can play. Or, head up to Deck 13 to play some mini golf or ping pong on Goofy's Sports Deck.

    If your boys enjoy pin trading, they can trade with the ship's officers on one of your cruise nights. Be sure to watch the Daily Navigator for this listing.

    I hope this helps you to find a "hidden gem" on your cruise this summer! Have a DREAMy cruise!

    Happy Cruising, Tracy V.

Meet the Panelist: Tracy, Illinois

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
