Aimed at children ages 3-12, the new Star Wars-themed area will allow children to join the Rebel Alliance, punch up the hyperdrive and navigate Han Solo’s ship across the galaxy. A large-screen TV will play the #Disney XD series “Star Wars Rebels” while gaming stations will let kids play video games based on the TV series.
Also coming to Dream is Disney Infinity Toy Box, a space dedicated to the company’s figurine-based gaming system with a life-size Disney Infinity Base for children to step onto for interactive game play. On display and available for use will be a complete set of figurines from all of Disney’s franchises including Pixar, Marvel and classic Disney characters. The Star Wars and Infinity play spaces replace the Monster’s Academy and Disney’s Explorer Pod play areas while Andy’s Room and Pixie Hollow remain.
Star Wars will also be embraced with the on-board version of Jedi Training Academy, a popular experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Young cruisers will become Padawans to master a lightsaber and use the Force in a showdown with Darth Vader.
Dream’s overhaul will also see the addition of Vanellope’s Sweets & Treats, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, adults-only splash pool Satellite Falls and the addition of a “Muppets”-themed adventure to the Midship Detective Agency scavenger hunt.
First up will be the revamp of Disney Dream, currently in dry dock until Oct. 24 in the Bahamas. Among new features coming to the nearly five-year-old ship will be two new spaces in the Oceaneer Club including the “Star Wars: Millennium Falcon” play area.
