Disney Dream Coverage: AquaDuck Water Coaster, Oceaneer Club, Vibe Teen Lounge – Photos & Video (Now in HD)

Hi everyone!

Here is my third report on the Disney Dream Christening Cruise! Mousesteps.com was invited, and I was there to take video. One of the most fun things I was able to do was to be taped going down the AquaDuck water coaster! (below, left and right)

The AquaDuck is what I’d call a gentle water coaster, but a lot of fun and with great views (below left and right). We actually rode 5 times total on the Castaway Cay day, and enjoyed seeing the island from the tube!

We were given Disney Dream shirts to wear during the ride (below, left). The rafts allow for one or two guests (below, right). This water coaster really is for almost anyone – it is a lot of fun, it doesn’t splash much and ends in a few inches of water.

Video #1 – Disney Dream AquaDuck Water Coaster POV Christening Cruise 1/20/11 HD – This is POV video of my ride on the Aqua Duck shipboard roller coaster (a cruise industry first) recorded on the new Disney Dream during it’s Christening Cruise Jan 19-21, 2011.

Huey, Dewey and Louie play around (below, left). Denise and I posed with Minnie Mouse in her cruise line outfit (below, right).

This is the way to Cabana’s (a casual buffet restaurant). You can see it at the end of the hall (below, left). Looking down towards the front of the ship, the Vibe teen club has an outdoor area with a pool, jacuzzi’s, chairs and games (below, right).

There is a mini-golf course on deck 13, which offers 9 interactive holes. Sports balls and glasses are part of the fun at one hole (below, left) and a sand castle with a crab crawling out is at one of the other holes (below, right).

Video #2 – Disney Dream Deck 11 and 12 Tour – Christening Cruise 1/20/11 Disney Cruise Line – A walk around decks 11 and 12, includes a look at the pool as well as the AquaDuck and characters including Mickey, Donald, and more.

Whozits and Whatzits offers merchandise such as sunblock and AquaDuck merchandise. Nemo’s Reef is a water play area for kids on deck 11.

Fountains dance in this lively water play area (below, left). A fish and seahorse are part of the theming (below, right).

Disney’s Oceaneer Club (below, left) offers areas based on pixies, Finding Nemo, Monsters, Inc. and Toy Story. The entryway is a brilliant blue (below, right).

The Explorer Pod offers a Finding Nemo submarine (below, left), where kids can find computers to enjoy a variety of games (below, right).

The Pixie area offers costumes for kids (below, left), as well as computers (below, right), and other activities.

Andy’s room includes Hamm, a Barrel of Monkeys and blocks (below, left), as well as other areas to explore (below, right).

Video #3 – Oceaneer Club Tour Disney Dream Christening Cruise 1/20/11 – Disney Cruise Line – This neat kids area offers so much to do! Children from 3 – 10 can enjoy a wide range of activities in the Oceaneer Club. Denise from Mousesteps.com shows the unique hand washing sinks that kids will love.

This hallway to the teen lounge Vibe (below, left) reminds me of the former Imageworks tunnel at Journey Into Imagination. A list of activities is outside the lounge (below, right).

There is a large room with couches and a big-screen TV (below, left), a small movie room, a kitchen that has a smoothie maker, another room with kids who were playing the game Rock Band when we arrived, and plenty of seating (below, right).  It really is a wonderful haven for teens!

Video #4 – Vibe Teen Lounge – Disney Dream – Christening Cruise 1/20/11 – This is the Vibe teen lounge, it also includes a pool area that is not included (we toured it at night). There weren’t a lot of teens on the christening cruise, there normally would be a lot more in these areas.
