  • Silver Castaway Club Members: 90 days prior to sail date
  • Gold Castaway Club Members: 105 days prior to sail date
  • Concierge Guests and Platinum Castaway Club Members: 120 days prior to sail date

Customers must also be free of any scalp or skin conditions for at least 30 days prior to the appointment.

You must cancel at least 24 hours prior to your reservation to avoid a $10-per-person cancellation fee, which also applies to no-shows.


The Disney Dream has several pool and water areas for kids and adults. If you’re wondering about swim diapers, pool vests, and toy and accessories, here’s what you need to know:

  • Only children who are toilet trained are allowed in the pools and spas. Kids who aren’t potty trained must wear swim diapers and can enjoy the wet play areas and splash zones.
  • Complimentary pool vests are available at the pool decks and can only be used onboard. 
  • Floats, rafts, and noodles are not allowed onboard. 
  • Coast Guard personal flotation devices (PFDs), water wings, and flotation sewn into bathing suits  are permitted at Goofy’s Pool.
  • Swim goggles that fit over the eyes only are permitted at pools, whirlpool spas, and waterslides.
  • Swim masks that cover the eyes and nose are only allowed at pools, but they aren’t on slides.
  • Snorkel tubes are not permitted at any pools, whirlpool spas, waterslides, or water play areas.

Now, here are the three pools on board:


AquaDuck on Disney Cruise Line

Deck: 12

The AquaDuck is a water-gushing acrylic tube, also known as an elevated “water coaster” that is essentially a slide, but transports guests up, down, and around — off the side of the ship. Better yet, try it at night for the multicolored lights.

Those 42 inches or taller can ride and single riders must be 54 inches or taller. Those under 7 who are at least 42 inches tall must ride with someone who is 14 years or older.

Quiet Cove Pool
