One of the unique experiences on a Disney cruise is its character meet and greets. Characters are located throughout the day at different locations. Scheduled times are listed in your personal navigator each day and there are also surprise visits during the day. You may be lucky enough to run into a character while walking down the hall. During the scheduled times adults and children are able to take pictures and get autographs from their favorite characters. All the ships in Disney’s fleet offer character meet and greets. Some of your favorites you will see are: Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto, Goofy, Captain Hook, Peter Pan, Lilo, Stitch, and Chip & Dale. The characters also appear at the Sail Away party and See Ya’ real soon party.

The Disney Dream is now offering a ticketed character meet and greet for the Princess Gathering and Anna and Elsa. On embarkation day you can pick up tickets to both events at Port Adventures located on deck 5. Tickets are distributed between 11:45-2:30pm. Tickets are limited so I suggest this is one of the first things you do when you board the ship.

During our cruise on the Disney Dream we had tickets for day two of our cruise. Our first time was for the Princess Gathering. The Princess Gathering is located in the atrium. This event is roped off and you do need to present your ticket to be granted access in. The Princesses that are at this event are: Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, and Rapunzel. Each princess spent a good amount of time talking with my daughter and taking pictures. After the Princess Gathering we headed over to Anna and Elsa with our tickets in hand.

The meet & greet for Anna and Elsa is located in Animator’s Palate. This is a really unique experience. The TV screens all have scenes of Arendelle displayed and the table cloths look like snow. The sisters made my daughter feel so special. This experience is a must do while on the Disney Dream!
