Usually I’m not big into clubbing, but things are a bit different over on the Disney Dream…
I absolutely loved Evolution on Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship. While this probably had a lot to do with the company I was keeping — some of my favorite people were at the club with me — it also had a lot to do with the alternately relaxed and invigorating atmosphere of the club.
During the day, Evolution serves as a venue for family-friendly seminars and activities; in the evening, it transforms into a dance club — part of the interwoven series of adults-only nightclubs collectively called The District.
The name — Evolution — refers to a butterfly metamorphosis theme that spreads throughout the massive club, from silvery undertones in the furnishings and stage to a stylized butterfly wing pattern covering the walls and ceiling.
Evolution is the only club where you’ll find dancing, but there’s plenty of space on the illuminated dance floor! Once in a while you’ll even see some Disney Dream entertainment cast members tearing it up on the tiles. The stage is also used for other shows and acts on longer cruises.
On the nights I visited, I stuck with margaritas (of course I did… you know me…). Not the best I’ve ever had, but certainly not the worst. What I can say is that they were strong!
Also ordered and within photo range was this lovely mojito…
I wonder if I could have ordered a Konk Kooler…
Like I said, I really enjoyed this club. Even if you’re a homebody usually (like me), consider taking an evening on your cruise and exploring The District and its clubs. We’ll be covering each one individually, but the best thing about The District is that — taken as a whole — there’s something for everyone.
Evolution is definitely the place to let your hair down and burn off a few of those cruise calories on the dance floor. Fortify and enjoy! (And then let us know your favorite drink so we can get it next time!)
