    Hi, We are sailing on the Dream in August ‘23. Can I pre-book the Golf simulator prior to boarding?

    Well ahoy there Barry, and welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so glad that you've come to us for a bit of nautical knowledge ahead of your summer sailing aboard the Disney Dream! As you might already know, some of the things signature to that ship and her sister the Disney Fantasy, are the Virtual Sports Simulators found at Goofy's Sports Deck; in my experience these digital recreation spaces up on Deck 13 are enclosed and can get pretty warm, which may come in handy as the Disney Dream takes on itineraries in northern Europe!

    While offerings and availability are subject to change without prior notice, you may be happy to hear that fellow seafaring guests are still currently able to book Onboard Fun recreation activities such as the Golf 30-Minute Package and Golf 60-Minute Package on board the Disney Dream ahead of their Embarkation date. If this activity is available during your voyage you'll be able to find it once you've logged into your account on the Disney Cruise Line website via the My Reservations page (under the Already Booked tab) through the header options up top. If you look for Cruise Activities or My Plans, it will either provide you with the ability to Add Activities on the right-hand side of the page or notify you when your booking window opens for you to be able to make these advance reservations. (For example, seasoned sailors who are part of the Disney Cruise Line Castaway Club enjoy the benefit of the chance to access an earlier booking window ahead of their voyage!)

    Depending on the sailing and how many fellow golf enthusiasts may be on board, acquiring a spot may be very competitive as the hours of operation may be limited over the course of your cruise. In the event you're unable to find any availability online in advance, I also recommend connecting to the ship's wireless network as early as possible and accessing your Disney Cruise Line Navigator App upon Embarkation Day, as it doesn't hurt to check whether there may be new spots opening or if folks have cancelled their session times.

    Here are a few more of my personal Princely Picks, Tips and Tricks:

    • I find that it's always more worth it to book the 60-Minute Package as it affords you more flexibility and better value overall.
    • While the green may be virtual, the clubs definitely are real so do take caution so you don't end up with any Goofy Golfing mishaps when you take a swing!
    • I always recommend giving Goofy Golf a shot under the sunny skies at sea; there's nothing like a rousing round of miniature golf, especially if you run into Goofy and ask for some pointers on the perfect golf stance!
    I hope this helps Barry, please come back to let me know how it went and to ask any more questions you may have ahead of your voyage. Be sure to connect with our Disney Cruise Line specialists Tracie and Adrianna for their deep knowledge of cruising!

    Here's to the good times golfing as you sail into the Great Wide Somewhere!
