Dreamplay: Upclose with Shrek, Fiona, Etc.

Our visits to Dreamplay has always been fun, entertaining and wonderful. Aside from my daughter being a die-hard fan of Shrek & Fiona, she’s started to appreciate Kungfu Panda’s Po as well. So our visits to this place are practically a dream come true for her to actually play with her favorites.

Shrek Swamp Stomp

Being at Shrek’s Swamp is truly an Ogre-The-Top experience. Either Shrek or Fiona will be home to greet you. Being inside his house feels like being in a giant house, with all the huge chairs and table, not to mention a giant pot. Just be sure to stay away from it or you will end up being in a giant pot soup.

Gingy’s Kitchen

At Gingy’s Kitchen, you’ll learn how to make a gingerbread man from Gingy himself! Just don’t be surprised if Shrek and Donkey catch a whiff of your delicious treats and make an appearance too! It was a funfilled activity from my then first time baker who did everything with the help of her mom and dad.

Fast as Lightning Kung Fu Fightin 

 For kids who have actually seen the movie, this is such a hit. Join in the Kung Fu Panda Dojo and become a Kung Fu master alongside Po and The Furious Five! Ready your Fists of Fury and prepare to kick the dumplings out of your enemies as you train with these KFP legends. Who knows, you may even become the next Dragon Warrior!

Wall of Destiny

This one is especially for those who are not afraid of heights. Kids young and old can test their warrior skills, buckle up their harness as they climb the Wall of Destiny, where one can see “the Valley of Peace” from a “dragon’s eye” point of view. It’s good exercise too.

Whatever Floats your Boat

The Penguins of Madagascar need your help to create a sound seafaring vessel! Joining Skipper, Private, Rico, and Kowalski on their next operation, you will not only assemble your very own boat, you’ll also sail it down river! But be careful There just may be a few obstacles along the way.

Dreamtales Library

Storytelling comes to life as some of your favorite DreamWorks characters take the stage in a puppet show of their own!


 Join some of your favorite DreamWorks characters in DreamTheater! You’ll be part of the story in a unique 4-D experience that allows you to FEEL the excitement! Get ready to get a lil splash of water.

Getting Hungry?

There’s a lot of options, in case you go hungry playing… or waiting. Their menu ranges from light to heavy snacks and even some really full meals. I recommend their burgers and pizza… and well, get some of those gelato to keep your little ones more energized for the day’s activity.

  1. I used to work at City of Dreams and I was assigned to the PR activities of Dreamplay. It’s one of my favorite parts of the hotel/resort! It’s more for bigger kids, though. Smaller kids are not allowed to enter some attractions until they meet the height requirement. Such a fun place… even for adults like us!

  2. We went there during my son’s field trip. Seems you went on a weekday because your pictures don’t look as crowded. It was a zoo when we were there but Jael had so much fun. We didn’t get to try making a gingerbread cookie because we ran out if time. Will try to be back though!

  3. Ever since we heard about this place I have always wanted to bring Jared. He is a big Dreamworks fan and he will absolutely love to see his favorite characters here. I am sure he will enjoy the How To Train Your Dragons bit, as he is crazy about Hiccup and Toothless! Hopefully, we can bring him there during the Christmas break since we failed to do so on his birthday.
