I had the opportunity to tour the Disney Dream last week and I was blown away by the amazing details and tributes to Disney theme parks and animated films. It seemed like there was a gorgeous piece of artwork made specifically for the dream or a reproduction from animated film on every deck and down every hall.
One of the first tributes I ran into was a mural that seemed very familiar. Haven’t we seen something like this inside a castle in Florida somewhere?
Another great details was located in Cabanas, the buffet-style restaurant. They had a few sand castles on permanent display.
A complete collection of Disney sand castles.
Ever need to know what time it is around the world? Or the only important time zones to us Disney enthusiasts?
Another display that really excited me was on an upper deck and it was a few pieces that looked like bronze-type castings. They featured some pretty famous Disney ships.
My favorite was Steamboat Willie.
I was surprised at the amount of animation-related art and tributes. Not only were they executed in some amazing ways, but they all had a wonder tie-in
As can be expected, a majority of the artwork was nautically-themed!
There are plenty of nods to classic Disney features and they offer a much more serious look at Disney art.
There were several background layouts for Pinocchio. They were stunning in their beauty.
A large format reproduction from Mickey’s Gala Premiere.
There were also some wonderful images from Alice In Wonderland.
Some concept pieces by Mary Blair.
There were also some great pieces from Peter Pan.
The following piece was created specifically for the Disney Dream.
And here’s the unforgettable Walt Disney Theatre.
Have you been on a Disney Cruise? How do you think they compare to a vacation in the parks?
