Disney Cruise Line's Newest Ship - Disney Dream
With the construction of their newest ship, the Disney Dream, under way, Disney Cruise Line is literally building a Dream. Today in New York City, Disney Cruise Line held an event that allowed attendees to explore some of the signature elements from the Disney Dream.
We are all looking forward to innovations like:
*First of a kind watercoaster! A high speed thrill ride called, The AquaDuck! Riders zip through a see through tube that curves out over the side of the ship giving riders a view of the ocean 150 feet below!!!!!!
*2 new restaurants-The Royal Palace, a tribute to the Disney princess stories & The Enchanted Garden which transforms from day to night!
*A re-imagination of Animators Palette.
*Parents can escape on the perfect date night at the Dream's Skyline Bar that has views of the world's most famous cities!
*Virtual Portholes in the ship's interior cabins let guests have "views" of the ocean using digital technology. That's right, a TV instead of a window, and it'll occasionally show a character popping up, like Mickey or the starfish from Finding Nemo.
*Interactive experiences for the kids, Disney-style. Kids will be able to interact with Crush, the animated turtle from "Finding Nemo," via a cinema-size plasma screen, and experience what it is like to be "toy size" in Andy's Room, a larger-than-life replica of the "Toy Story" set. There will also be a play area called Monsters Academy, visited regularly by Mike, the lovable green guy from "Monsters Inc."

Read from the experts, and watch the video. It has a lot of concept art and cool stuff not talked about on the post.
On a sidenote, they're doing a rebroadcasting (I think) of the live webcast where they announced all of this at 5:45 EST on www.disneycruiselineevents.com/disneydream/
