The Disney Wonder ship makes for a magical vacation. For Disney loving families, you just can't go wrong with a Disney Cruise.
We spent a week on the Disney Fantasy back in 2014, and our family had such a fabulous time.
At the time, our daughters were 17 and 13. You might think a Disney Cruise is just for younger kids, but our daughters loved every minute!
With 11 decks filled with all kinds of things to do from kids clubs -including one just for teens- to 3 themed pools, and the Wide World of Sports.
Families will never know what's around the corner with character experiences popping up out of the blue and deck parties galore!
Broadway-style shows and movies are on the schedule throughout the day so you can plan to see your favorites.
But the Disney Wonder is not just for kids! Adults can chill out at the Senses Spa & Salon, relax with a cocktail at Crown & Fin Pub or Cadillac Lounge, or dance the night away at Azure.
Disney’s philosophy of reinvesting in its fleet is evident on the Disney Wonder.
With six restaurants plus one just for adults, you'll have lots of choices. Don't miss Animator's Palate!
For this special look inside the ship, guests were treated to a meal at Tiana's Place Restaurant.
Tiana’s Place Restaurant
This is one of the unique features to the Disney Wonder. Southern charm fills Tiana's, Disney's fabulous newly designed restaurant.
Tiana’s Place takes its inspiration from Princess Tiana from Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog.”
As Tiana takes the stage, backed by a jazz ensemble, her smooth, soulful voice tugs at the recesses of your heart.
As the musical pace picks up a bit, your toes are soon tapping out a beat, making you want to get up and dance. Jazz, swing, and blues musical selections round out the set.
Mouth-watering selections fill the menu. The bayous of Louisiana are the inspiration.
Duck Confit, Ahi Tuna Tartare, Artichoke Ravioli, and Cajun Spiced Sea Bass are a few choice selections from the tantalizing menu.
As Disney always does, there is a storyline that runs through the restaurant, chronicling Tiana’s journey from a waitress to a frog to a princess to a proud restaurant owner.
Framed family pictures are hanging on the walls. Lily-shaped candleholders and Tiana's culinary awards are scattered throughout the restaurant.
The Wonder is for Children
In the Marvel Super Hero Academy, the kids are learning to develop the brave and adventurous heroes that reside inside themselves.
During the day, superheroes will come out, meet the kids and spend time mentoring them and teaching them to develop their superhero strengths.
They’ll learn the importance of teamwork, bravery, and problem-solving in the unique program, part of the Disney Oceaneer Club.
Inside the Oceaneer Club, designed for kids age three to twelve, the spaces have been reimagined.
Your kids will feel bigger with the ceilings lower than normal. There are more chances for character interaction than ever before.
These new spaces let kids dance, play and just have plain old kid fun.
Your kids will have the opportunity to hang out with Olaf from Frozen for some hands-on fun via the digital screen.
Club Disney features storytelling and games. Andy’s Room offers kids a multilevel play area with a “Toy Story” theme.
Family Fun onboard the Wonder
The D Lounge is a new concept onboard the Wonder. This comfortable but chic family lounge offers games and family-style entertainment for the whole family.
Chill Teen Spa offers spa treatments specially designed for teens. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique provides makeovers for the littlest family members.
Head up for maximum family water fun. Twist ’n’ Spout water slide provides exciting water fun for everyone.
Dory's Reef water-play area is for toddlers. The AquaLab offers hours of interactive water play fun for the entire family.
The Wonder is for Adults too!
Do you love Disney and love to cruise, but don’t have kids? No problem!
The Wonder is for you, too!
You'll feel as if you are in a neighborhood pub when you walk into The Crown & Fin.
The bar feels like an authentic English tavern filled with dark wood, leather furniture, and brass accents.
Crown & Fin offers an extensive selection of British and specialty beers and cocktails.
Throughout the lounge, you will see artwork, props and other items that link to Disney films set in London.
As part of the peek inside the ship, guests were treated to Frozen, A Musical Spectacular aboard the Disney Wonder.
Frozen a Musical Spectacular
This hit show debuts exclusively onboard the Wonder. They have combined traditional theater with modern technology, and of course, a bit of Disney magic thrown in for good measure.
Transporting the guests on a whirlwind trip through the kingdom of Arendelle, following the adventures of the royal sisters Anna and Elsa, you meet some of your beloved characters and favorite musical selections.
Disney has hit it out of the park with this fantastic musical! Incredible costumes, sets and stunning special effects blend together to bring the characters to life.
The newly transformed Disney theater immerses guests in the kingdom of Arendelle.
They have indeed achieved a high bar with the Disney Wonder ship. Who can’t wait to board her for a cruise?
