Since it was a holiday, hubby and I took our one-year-old to Dreamplay by Dreamworks Manila. It’s a theme park inside the resort and casino complex, City of Dreams. Dreamplay is a great destination for families looking for fun activities for both kids and adults. 🙂
Operating Hours and Ticket Price
Dreamplay is open from Monday to Sunday. During weekdays, the attraction is open from 10 am to 8 pm. During weekends and holidays, it opens at 9 am and closes at 8 pm.
As of our visit, weekday pass costs PHP680, while weekend/holiday pass costs PHP880. Children below 80 cm (like our toddler Tash) are given FREE pass! 🙂 But of course, it’s best to check Dreamplay’s official website for updated price list.
Those who own an SM advantage card and BDO rewards card may avail 10% discount, while Intellicare card holders can get 20% off.
The Dreamplay Experience
Dreamplay boasts of various attractions inspired by Dreamworks movies like Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon, and Madagscar. Each attraction offers activities that both children and adults can enjoy. Our one-year-old can’t enjoy the activities yet, but Dreamplay is perfect for her pictorial. Oh, Mom is so happy! 🙂
Cooking Class with Gingy
The baking class with Gingerbreadman, Shrek and Donkey was my favorite activity in Dreamplay. It’s great to spend quality time with my family (and some of our friends) by learning how to make our own Gingerbread Man cookie! 🙂
Learning Kung Fu Moves with Master Po
At the Furious 6 Academy, we trained with Master Po, the Dragon Warrior. His Kung Fu dance moves were entertaining. Too bad, I didn’t get the highest score at the end of our training. 🙂
Finding inner peace at the Wall of Destiny
Daddies, titos of Manila and little boys will definitely enjoy this part of the theme park. My husband enjoyed it the most. 🙂
The Wall of Destiny consists of challenges that will require you to conquer your fear of heights, maintain focus and look for inner peace.

Fly your Dragon
My husband and our friends had fun searching for Hiccup’s collection of hand crafted dragon parts, creating their own dragons and flying them.
Slides and Hanging Bridge
Children will definitely enjoy climbing, sliding, walking on a hanging bridge.
Dreamplay Souvenir Shop
Of course, at the end of the tour, who doesn’t want a Dreamplay souvenir? 🙂
Dreamplay is a child-friendly (and mommy-friendly) place. It has a Mother’s Lounge where moms can breastfeed their little ones or change their diapers.
Chez Gingy Resto
There’s also a restaurant inside Dreamplay. The price of food, however, is a bit expensive.
We spent around three hours roaming around Dreamplay theme park, and we enjoyed every second of it. 🙂
