iPod Docking Station

Internet Access—Wireless Internet access is available in staterooms onboard (though we find the reception to be weak/spotty in some staterooms), as well as in many public areas. For details, see page 157.

iPod Docking Station—On all ships, there is an iPod player/clock/alarm near the bed. The player will charge and play music from both iPods and iPhones. To hear music from its speakers, use the Mode button to put it into iPod mode.

Card-operated laundry on the Dream

Laundry—Self-service laundries are available on all ships, as are valet laundry service, dry cleaning, and pressing. The three laundry rooms onboard the Magic Class are located across the hall from staterooms 2096, 6588, and 7590, while the seven laundry rooms on the Dream Class are across the hall from staterooms 2002, 5190, 6510, 7014, 8150, 9500, and 10572. Each laundry room has several stacked washer/dryers ($2.00 each), two irons and boards (no charge), detergent vending machine ($1.00), and table. Washers and dryers take about 45 minutes for each cycle. Estimate $5.00 for a full load of laundry. Machines have a card reader, so you must swipe your Key to the World card (no coins accepted). If you plan to do laundry, pack some detergent or Purex sheets and a mesh bag to tote your items. Plan to visit in the mornings—afternoons are very busy. We do not recommend you bring your own iron or steamer as their use is prohibited in the staterooms for safety reasons.

Lights—The staterooms are well illuminated, but it can get pitch black in your room when you turn off the lights (especially the staterooms without a porthole). If you need it, bring a night light, leave the bathroom light on, or open your closet door a crack to trigger its automatic light. Tip: On the Dream Class, look for a switch at the desk for a night light above the sitting area.

Underbed space on all ships

Luggage—Once you’ve unpacked, you can store your empty luggage in the closet, or slide it under the bed. The clearance is 13” on all ships. You’ll have plenty of drawers handy when you unpack your belongings—there is a lot of storage in your stateroom!

Messages—You'll find a variety of ways to leave and retrieve messages. First, the phone system allows you to call staterooms directly (dial 7 + the stateroom number) and leave voice mail messages. To check and retrieve your messages, just pick up the phone and press the “Messages” button. If you have messages, the light on your phone will blink until you listen to them. See page 156 for more details on the voice mail system. The Disney Cruise Line Navigator app (see page 187) includes free texting to fellow passengers. For a lower-tech message system, a decorative sea creature ornament outside your stateroom door serves as a message holder—you may find messages from crew members or fellow passengers. Third, we recommend you pack a pad of sticky notes!

      For a night light you might consider getting a dual tap USB plug in transformer/charger with an LED. I got mine at WalMart for about $10. Blue light is bright enough to avoid obstacles but not to read by.
