A Disney-tastic Water Coaster

A Disney-tastic Water Coaster

One thing you’ll find that really wins a child’s heart during a family cruise vacation is the promise of a righteous water ride (In fact, that goes for many adults, too). And many cruise lines have done a great job making sure their pools are properly equipped for the occasional thrill-seeker.  But as far as waterslides go, Disney Cruise Line has really blown all the rest out of the water with the one on their soon-to-be-sailing Disney Dream.

They call it the AquaDuck, which to us almost seems like too docile a name for the 765-foot long “water coaster” that carries you over the side of the ship and back, in and outside of the ship itself, and through a scenic lazy river that follows a stomach-churning 4-deck drop.  Not to mention, most of the tube is made of clear acrylic, which makes for one heck of a bird’s eye view of the ship and of the ocean below.

The Dream sets out on her maiden voyage on January 26th, 2011 and is already open for reservations.  For her first year in service, she’ll remain in the Bahamas where she’ll do 3-, 4-, and 5-night sailings out of Port Canaveral—just a short drive from Disney World in Orlando.  So, it’d be pretty manageable to piggy-back your vacation in the park with a magical voyage to Nassau and Disney’s privately owned paradise, Castaway Cay.

And of course, the great part about Disney Cruise Line is that they’re well equipped to give us a pretty good sneak peek of what fun the AquaDuck holds in store before 2011 rolls around.

Knowing what Disney and its Imagineers can do on land, is it really surprising to see that they can really soup up your family’s poolside experience at sea?
