Differences from Disney Dream

The nightclub area transforms into "districts" representing different cities and countries of Europe. The Tube is a dance club themed after the London Underground, complete with white subway tile, subway map carpet, and handlebars at the booths. Ooh La La is a champagne bar reminiscent of an elegant French boudoir. O'Gill's Pub is an Irish themed pub representing the lively neighborhood pubs throughout Ireland. La Piazza is in the heart of the Europa district, inspired by the decorative plazas throughout Italian cities. Skyline Lounge, carried over from Disney Dream, is rethemed a bit; adding European cities to its backdrop. Satellite Falls is an adults-only pool deck added to the top deck of Disney Fantasy, for an added quiet retreat.
