Geeking Out with the Disney Dream, Part 6: AquaDuck!


The line for the AquaDuck is heading up the stairs against the red funnel. The line you see here is about a 30 minute wait. The ride starts in the upper left, loops out off the edge of the ship (it really does stick out over the ocean!) and then travels along the starboard side, curves at the bow of the ship, then returns up the port side.

Yes, I’ve made it up to Part 6! I didn’t plan to write this much, but I’ve received some really nice feedback from you and I keep finding more and more features to geek out about!

Today’s post will be about AquaDuck, a 765-foot water slide that will only be found on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy (when the Fantasy is commissioned later this month). They’re the only cruise ships in the world with complete water slides on board. I had to wait until my waterproof camera pictures were developed to do this one and I’m so excited about it! AquaDuck starts inside the rear funnel and travels from the aft of the ship towards the bow, then goes under the front funnel (behind the Funnel Vision screen) and then continues back toward the aft of the ship, depositing you right at the bottom of the stairs so you can hop right back in line!
