This game is very similar to Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom interactive game found at the park. From what Iíve read (on the internet so it must be true) this is actually the beta or 1.0 version of the game that eventually became Sorcerers but with limited features and a different story line overlay.
Even though this was a limited feature predecessor to Sorcerers in some ways I like it better. Not exactly sure I can effectively communicate why? Maybe itís just the simplicity of the game. I also think that since the ship was designed for the game it is better integrated into the infrastructure that at the Magic Kingdom where it was added afterwards.
The foundation of this game is ďenchanted artĒ scattered throughout the ship. Even w/o the game the ďenchanted artĒ is an excellent feature of the ships dťcor, something Disney should consider implementing at the resort hotels in Anaheim and Orlando. As I briefly referenced above the ship if elaborately decorated with photos and prints from the golden age of Disney. Hundreds of pieces of art work throughout the ship. However about 20 +/- of those works of art are enchanted, in that they come to life and play and animated clip when you walk by them. They are using some sort of super high resolution retina display technology in that when the art if stagnate you canít tell that it isnít paper or canvas. I donít know how they make a backlit LCD screen look like a front lit piece of art?
The screens used for the Magic Kingdom game arenít as good as the ones on the ship. But perhaps that has something to do with light level of the MK exterior game play compared to the Dreamís interior play?
If you are on the ship and have 30 to 45 minutes to kill (great rainy day activity), I strongly recommend this activity.
Perhaps this type of game is something they should implement at Hilton Head, Vero, Aulani, and any future off property resort?
