The Magical Porthole in the Disney Dream inside cabins is the most noticeable difference from other cruise ships. This large round monitor has a live video feed from cameras located on the port, starboard, bow, or stern of the ship, giving guests a real-time view of what's on the outside of the Disney Dream. Disney Cruises wasn't content to just have a video porthole. Their imagineers added animated Disney or Pixar characters who randomly pop-up in the video. Characters such as Mickey Mouse, dancing hippos, or Dumbo might stay for a few seconds or just dash across the screen.
