Our Home Away from Home on the Disney Dream

November 12, 2014

Accessible Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom on the Disney Dream

Our second cruise on the Disney Dream was even better than the first. Our fun started with our stateroom. On our last cruise we had an oceanview stateroom on deck 6 in the back of the ship. It was large and nice but an odd shape. We knew for our next cruise that we wanted to try out a different state room with a verandah.

We booked a Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah that was accessible. The stateroom can sleep 4 or 5 guests and has a queen sized bed, single convertible sofa, wall pull-down bed, and upper berth pull-down bed. There was only two of us but there was definitely enough space and storage for more. We were in stateroom 8092.

The bed is raised so you can fit your suitcases underneath but I didn’t have any problem transferring from my wheelchair. There are nightstands and lamps on both sides which was nice.

The vanity area is a great space. There are drawers and cabinets for storage as well as a refrigerator in the lower right cabinet. The chair was easy to move so I could use it to get ready in the evenings. There is also a hair dryer in one of the drawers. There was so much storage we didn’t use all of it.

There were two separate closets. Drew used the one on the right that had lots of shelving and space to hang his clothes.

The one on the left featured a clothing rack that could be pulled down so I could get to things easily. There was also some shelves as well as a safe.

The main area also had a couch that can convert into a bed, an ottoman that opens for extra storage, and a chair.

The bathroom had a small elevation/ramp to get inside but it was easy use. The bathroom was a great size. The sink was at a great height and I could roll under it to use. I could use the mirror and all of the towel bars.

The shower had a nice bench. Once Drew lowered the shower head for me I could use it easily on my own.

Now let’s talk about my favorite part, the verandah! It was barrier free so it was so easy to go outside and enjoy it.

The wall was clear plexiglass so I could see everything which was awesome since I am just short enough in my chair that it would have been hard to see over the railing. There was also enough space for me to roll out and then be able to shut the door.

One of the best things about having a verandah was being able to see the sun rise and set at sea. It was beautiful!

Have you stayed in an accessible stateroom on the Disney Cruise Line? We’d love to hear about your experience!

    Melissa,
    Thank you for sharing your experiences, comments and observations. We are traveling with our Aunt Faith, who has mobility challenges. This was so helpful and truly eases the anxieties we had regarding accessibility for her & us. Great blog!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!
