Disney’s Oceaneer Club onboard the Disney Dream
Disney’s Oceaneer Club on the Disney Dream is a child-friendly oasis that transports kids to the magical lands of Disney fairies, friendly monsters, adventuresome toys and undersea exploration. Disney’s Oceaneer Club is open to 3-to-10-year-old children.
The central rotunda, with a whimsical Peter Pan’s Never Land motif, is the main gathering place and hub of Disney’s Oceaneer Club. Constellations of Disney characters created with fiber optics twinkle across the ceiling, and iridescent finishes give the room a sparkling glow. The focal point of the rotunda is a stage where children can create and star in their very own theatrical performances, participate in storytelling sessions and delight in meeting Disney characters such as Tinker Bell and Peter Pan.
The Disney's Oceaneer Club's rotunda has a 103-inch plasma screen for watching movies and for magical interactions with a "most excellent" live character: Crush, the animated sea turtle from the Disney•Pixar animated motion picture "Finding Nemo," stops mid-stream in his digital undersea environment to chat, play and joke with kids in live, unrehearsed conversations. Sometimes using silly props and joined by this "Finding Nemo" friends, Crush amazes and entertains "little surfer dudes" during real-time, personalized appearances that showcase his most-excellent personality. These one-of-a-kind experiences with Crush continuing Disney's legacy of bringing characters to life in new and incredible ways.
In Andy’s Room, the world of the Disney•Pixar “Toy Story” films comes to life. Inside the vibrantly-colored room, kids experience the feeling of being toy-sized as they play among larger-than-life characters from the animated film. Children can rearrange features on Mr. Potato Head, crawl through the coiled body of Slinky Dog and get behind the wheel of an oversize, remote-controlled race car.
Monster’s Academy is a fun, interactive space inspired by the DisneywPixar film “Monsters Inc.” The centerpiece is an elaborately-themed play structure for climbing that is fashioned after the film’s scare floor, where monster pals Michael "Mike" Wazowski and James P. "Sulley" Sullivan work. Computers integrated into the walls feature unique, interactive games. For kids who want to become a monster, there is an assortment of monster costumes and props.
In Pixie Hollow, children are transported to the enchanted land inhabited by Tinker Bell and her fairy friends. A pixie tree stands in the room, its branches extending overhead with hundreds of fairy lights twinkling among the leaves and hummingbird-sized fairy houses hanging from the boughs. In this magical forest setting, children can make crafts just like a true tinker fairy while sitting on stools shaped like acorns and mushrooms, or dress up in fanciful costumes.
Explorer Pod is inspired by the Disney•Pixar animated film “Finding Nemo.” Surrounded by a seascape and seeming to emerge from a pool of water, a bright-blue-and-yellow submarine surfaces in the center of the room. Inside, children can explore and play games at 16 interactive computer stations. Outside of the sub, eight computer stations provide gaming fun as the familiar flock of seagulls from “Finding Nemo” looks on.
Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Disney’s Oceaneer Lab will feature an interactive play-floor, a cruise industry first that blends the latest in gaming technology with Disney’s panache for storytelling. Located in the main gathering space in both venues, the interactive play-floor allows children to engage in team play exercises where their movements control the action on the interactive floor. For example, one activity has children scrambling around the perimeter of the interactive play-floor with their movements controlling the pitch of a virtual tilt maze.
On the interactive play-floor, children will be able to explore a wide variety of gaming options with varying levels of difficulty. Disney Cruise Line youth counselors will use the interactive play-floor during storytelling activities where children will be able to fly over the streets of London with Peter Pan or ride the ocean waves with Crush.
Disney characters come to life and interact with children in one-of-a-kind experiences. On a 103-inch screen, Crush, the animated sea turtle from the Disney•Pixar motion picture “Finding Nemo,” or the mischievous animated alien Stitch make scheduled appearances to chat, play and joke with kids in live, unrehearsed conversations.
Sometimes using silly props from their digital environments, Crush and Stitch amaze and entertain children during real-time, personalized appearances. These magical experiences with Crush and Stitch continue Disney’s legacy of bringing characters to life in new and incredible ways.
Connecting the Disney’s Oceaneer Club and the Disney’s Oceaneer Lab are two Workshops. In these specialized areas, kids concoct creations in an interactive science lab, conduct crazy experiments, express their creativity through art projects, stretch their culinary skills and participate in other hands-on activities.
