Disney Dream:

The Disney Dream presents 3 stage shows. Disney's Believe, is a 50-minute show featuring over 20 popular characters like Cinderella, Peter Pan, Mary Poppins, and Belle. It tells the story of a busy father who learns a lesson about the important things in life, like spending time with his daughter. The Golden Mickeys: A Timeless Tribute is a popular show from the Wonder and the Magic, but has a few new twists onboard the Dream. The Little Mermaid's Ariel performs an aerial ballet and the Tangled characters, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider perform a romantic duet. Beauty and the Beast is the newest production to join the incredible lineup. This version of the tale as old as time was inspired by Disney’s live-action adaptation of the animated classic. The show utilizes the most imaginative elements of both the live-action and classic films.

Disney Fantasy:

The Disney Fantasy presents 3 stage shows - Disney's Believe, Disney Wishes, and Disney's Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular.  Disney Wishes is a 45-minute musical tells the story of three friends celebrating high school graduation with a trip to Disneyland. The friends are learning about growing up and what to expect in the future, which leads to several musical numbers with Disney characters. The show involves scenes and characters from Tangled, Lilo and Stitch, Jungle Book, and many others. Wishes ends with the song Breakthrough from the Disney Channel movie Lemonade Mouth.

Disney's Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular is a musical comedy with many of the classic scenes and songs from the film. At times, performers will be in the aisles of the theater, making guests feel like they're a part of the show. A new song, To Be Free, is included and was written for the show by Alan Menken, who composed the original score.

On the 10/26/19 sailing, Frozen, A Musical Spectacular will debut on the Disney Fantasy, replacing Disney Wishes. The final sailing for Disney Wishes is 08/31/19.

There's also the Buena Vista Theatre on board which plays first-run Disney movies morning, afternoon and night, some in Digital 3-D. The theater is decorated in the Art Deco style of the 1920's and 1930's.
