Good review! I am wondering though, is the Spa owned and operated by a 3rd party as it is on other lines? That could be the reason for the lull in customer service there. Since this was only a 3 night cruise, is it possible that the activities you were expecting were not offered due to the length of the cruise? Did your friends cruise longer than 3 nights? Disney is on our bucket list.

Thank you and great questions! I totally didn't think about that regarding the spa - I believe it was called "Senses Spa" so you may be correct. Good call, not everyone can be Disney :)
Sorry for the confusion regarding my comment about activities. The individuals that told us about the events were on the ship with us. We didn't personally know them, they were just assigned at the same dinner table as us. They would tell us each night about activities they were planning on attending, such as the fireworks show, and then we would look on the app or schedule and couldn't find them listed anywhere. The next morning, we were a bit let down when they would rave about the events.
We should have probably inquired with the staff, but we tried to be as independent as possible.
Hope this helps and I would certainly recommend doing a Disney cruise at least one time - so good addition to your bucket list! My very first cruise several years ago was this same Disney Dream 3-day cruise (I think the first year it launched), and since then, it's been a unsuccessful search for a similar grand experience. Guess I got spoiled!
LOL gsadan! Sailing on a Disney cruise sounds like the feeling you get after flying 1st class. You don't want to go back to Coach seats after! No comparison.
I have never been on a Disney ship. Someday, I hope to do so as I enjoy experiencing different ships and cruise lines.
Moving Disney up a notch on our must-sail list! Thanks so much for the review and follow-up!
