For some added Disney magic, all inside staterooms on Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy feature a Magical Porthole, providing you with a real-time view of the outside of the ship that reflects the actual stateroom’s location – port or starboard. High-definition cameras placed on the exterior of the ship feed live video to an LCD flat-screen monitor with a stylized nautical frame cleverly disguised as a porthole.
Be on the lookout for enchanting surprises. From time to time, Disney animated characters may make cameo appearances in the Magical Porthole. You never know who might pop by! And when it’s time for bed (or a nap), just turn off the Magical Porthole with a quick flip of the switch.
I love some of these latest imagineering items Disney has been adding to the parks and ships. Rides like Toy Story Midway Mania, the Magical Portholes and the Muppet Caper game are all examples of innovative additions to a location that can be change rather quickly and inexpensively. Disney releases a new blockbuster animated movie? Bam! New character added to the porthole in a matter of hours. Disney has added Rapunzel from Tangled since the Dream was launched, and expect a character from this Summer’s Pixar release Brave to show up sometime soon.
The Magical Portholes can only be found in category 10 and 11 staterooms on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
