Wondering about the Disney Dream? If this is your first Disney Cruise or just your first time on the Disney Dream you may be curious about what the staterooms look like. This is a photo tour of an Oceanview Stateroom on the Disney Dream. Read on for more information and detailed photos.

Outside the Room
The main bed is a very comfortable queen-sized bed. Unlike many other cruise lines-- these beds are not made up of 2 singles that lock together, so you don't get the mattress split down the middle of your bed. However, it does limit the bed combinations for your travelling party. The beds are high enough that your suitcases should easily fit underneath. We had no problem fitting 4 large suitcases and one carry on under the bed. This is a HUGE space saver. Both sides of the bed have their own bedside lamp attached to the wall and a small shelf with a drawer. One side has a stateroom phone on it.
The main bed is separated from the sitting area/bunk beds with a curtain. This is a nice touch. It gives a bit of separation and privacy between the kids and parent area or can block some light if you are staying up while the kids sleep.
In the sitting area the couch makes into a single bed. Another single bed lowers from the cupboard by the window. In other configurations you may have a bunk bed where the top bunk lowers from the ceiling. (Read our Oceanview Stateroom on the Disney Wonder post to see what that looks like). Rooms that sleep 5 will have both a bunkbed and the fold out bed. Your stateroom host will set up the beds for you while you are at dinner. In the morning they will tuck it all away ready for the day. If you would like them to keep it out as beds all day so the kids can nap, just speak with your host. They are very helpful and accommodating.
The Sitting Area--Daytime
Curtains over the port hole come in both sheers and black out curtains depending on the level of privacy and light proofing you want. The coffee table is a chest for extra storage (just don't forget to check it to make sure you have everything before you leave!). The desk area across from the couch has a small padded stool that can tuck under the desk when not in use for more floor space. There are shallow drawers to either side of the desk and a drawer with stationary in the middle. This is also where you will most likely find the hairdryer that is provided with the stateroom. At the very end of the desk is a small cupboard.
The TV is on an extendable arm that allows you to angle the TV to where you want to watch it from, ie. the couch or the bed. There is a range of Disney shows and movies available to watch. You can also watch a bridge view channel and an information channel that shows you where the ship is on a map.
The Closet and Storage
The closet comes with a number of hangers and space to hang both long and shorter items. Both sides have shelves and one includes a safe. The safe is large enough to hold several ipads and wallets or cameras but may not be big enough for some laptops. (We didn't have ours with us). Also you might have to carefully arrange it if you have larger camera lenses. We use the shelves to organize all of our shoes (let us know in the comments if you have other uses for them). In the bottom of the closet on one side we set up our pop up laundry hamper.
The Light Switches
The room plugs are an area that needs improvement on the Disney Dream. As you can see by the plugs on the desk -- they are not plentiful. There are only 2 plugs and one of them is taken up with the plug for the wave phone. (We recommend using your own cell phone and the Disney Cruise Line App rather than the wave phones, and unplugged ours). There is another plug behind the TV and one on the side of the bed closest to the bathroom. As you are not allowed to bring extension cords or power strips onboard we suggest that you invest in a USB splitter which is allowed at this time.
The Bathrooms -- the toilet room
The toilet room includes a toilet and sink. There is a set of small storage shelves to the right of the toilet that are suitable for a small toiletry case or storing bottles of sunscreen etc. The small glass shelf above the sink can also hold a few toiletries or tooth brushes.
The Bathrooms -- the shower room
The shower room includes a bathtub/shower and a sink. This is a very small tub as you would expect in such a small room but perfectly adequate for what you need. It is nice that there is a tub for those who are travelling with smaller children who need a bath rather than a shower. There is a flat bench area behind the shower that is convenient for those who have trouble standing in the shower or for shaving your legs. The split bathroom layout also allows for a little more flexibility when getting ready in the morning or heading to bed at night as there are two sinks available. The small glass shelf above the sink comes stocked with complementary shampoo, conditioner and body lotion from H2O. It is large enough to hold a few toiletries or tooth brushes. There is a tissue dispenser built into the sink.
Note: There is a small step up into both of the bathrooms.
There is a subtle Mickey theming to the room. Be sure to look for hidden Mickeys in your room and throughout the ship.
