Comparison of the Fantasy vs. the Dream

First, yes I tried the search button. Nothing came up...

Has there been a thread with a list of differences between the Fantasy and the Dream?

More precisely, what is on the Dream that they ended up changing for the Fantasy?
(Better location for the aft elevators, I hope...)

Thanks!

The aft elevators are in the same place on the Fantasy. They added some additional water features on the Fantasy, BBBoutique is also on the Fantasy.

I created a spreadsheet showing the differences, but I don't know how to include it in a post (I know it can be done, because I saw a post with one once).

Let's see if this works:

No, it doesn't include the content. Oh well, it's a start.

Isn't a "figurehead" on the bow of a ship? In that case it would be:
Dream - Captain Mickey
Fantasy - Sorcerer Mickey.

The characters on the stern are:
Dream - Sorcerer Mickey
Fantasy - Dumbo & Timothy

That's a good question and I think you're right. So what do you call them when they're on the stern?

I guess I should include the statues in the atrium too, then. Minnie is on the Fantasy. Who is on the Dream?

If you want to get really nit-picky (sorry, that's how I am) the Fantasy has Mademoiselle Minnie. Don't throw anything at me.

On the Dream, the sports bar 687 is accessible for families during the day to watch sporting events and play games. The similar space on the Fantasy, O'Gills is adults only. So if you're under 18 and want to watch a Sunday afternoon football game, you're out of luck.

The decor is different. They added satellite falls, aqua lab and another mini wading pool for families. The adult bar area has been renamed Europa instead of The District. Pink on the Dream is Ooh la la on the Fantasy. Royal Palace is Royal Court on the Dream, different decor/decorations. They added a new show in AP and kept the Crush show. Also added Bippity Boppity Boutique. I am sure I killed some of the spellings
