Have you been to Walt Disney World in Florida and gone to one or more of the water parks there?   Perhaps you've been to River Country, Typhoon Lagoon, or Blizzard Beach?    If not, maybe you've been to a local water park in your area.   If you have, I suspect you have some pleasant memories of those times splashing in the water, going down water slides, or just relaxing on a lazy river ride.

Speaking of splashing, have you ever ridden on Splash Mountain in Disneyland or Walt Disney World? 

Did you ever think you could go on a water ride as much fun as those rides on a cruise ship?   Well, we have some good news for you.   On Disney Dream you can ...

Introducing the Cruise Industry's First Water Coaster Ride

AquaDuck is a thrilling "water coaster," whose entrance is on Deck 12, Aft aboard the Disney Dream. In a cruise industry first, Guests are propelled at high speeds from Deck 12, Aft through an acrylic tube on a breathtaking journey up, down, around and off the side of the ship, through the Forward Funnel and—following a mammoth drop—into a lazy river.

Developed by the Disney Imagineers, this elevated water coaster—the first of its kind at sea—travels 765 feet and features an exciting 4 deck drop. It was designed for Adults and Children at least 48" or taller.

AquaDuck affords breathtaking views of the ocean and ship below—that is, if you're brave enough to keep your eyes open during this exciting ride! It also offers a bird's-eye view of the exciting new pools available to family, kids and adults on the Disney Dream.

Fun Facts & Tips

The AquaDuck water coaster boasts a thrilling 4-deck drop and safely carries Guests over the side of the ship and back.

AquaDuck is the first water coaster on a Disney Cruise Line ship—or, for that matter, any cruise ship—setting the standard for height, length and excitement.

Be one of the first to enjoy this new attraction onboard Disney Dream or plan now to be one of the first to try the AquaDuck on her sister ship, Disney Fantasy, when she starts sailing in 2012.
