Disney Wonder Ship Report by Tyesha Collier, Landry & Kling Sales Administrator, Client Services
Disney Wonder is a true ocean-going masterpiece. With 875 staterooms and 11 decks of restaurants, pools, entertainment, and meeting venues, the ship offers an enchanting experience for guests of all ages. I recently had the pleasure of sailing on a four-night Baja cruise from San Diego on this majestic vessel. As I approached Disney Wonder, my heart raced. The massive ship loomed over me, and I couldn’t wait to board.
The staff greeted me with big smiles, and I immediately felt welcomed. They checked my passport, verified my information, and provided my boarding wristband. The security screening process was efficient, and I felt secure knowing Disney takes safety seriously. There was nothing left to do except enjoy!
Excitement built within me as I stepped onto the Disney Wonder. I couldn’t help but be in awe of the attention to detail and the Disney magic that permeated every corner. Everywhere I looked, subtle touches of Disney’s trademark reminded me that I was sailing with a famous mouse. From the Mickey Mouse-shaped portholes to the character greetings and the Disney-themed restaurants, the ship was truly a sight to see.
Venues For Adults and Kids
.As we sailed, I spent my days enjoying onboard events, embracing the sunshine, and taking full advantage of Disney’s Senses Spa services. The ship has an impressive array of amenities, including the adults-only spa and fitness center, a movie theater, multiple bars, and lounges that host trivia, seminars, and interactive game shows.
Disney Wonder offers a sports deck, family pools, and a water slide – great for multigenerational meetings and incentives! And, of course, there are youth areas and clubs where children, tweens, and teens can enjoy supervised activities while their parents relax in adult-only dedicated venues. There is even a fine dining restaurant exclusively for adults.
Innovative Meeting Space
Imagine hosting a meeting or awards presentation in the Buena Vista Theatre (278 capacity) or Walt Disney Theater (977 capacity, available during private ship charter), equipped with cutting-edge audiovisual technology and comfortable seating. Each plush seat has a perfect view of the stage, giving it that award-show feel.
There are a variety of other venues, including The D-Lounge, with state-of-the-art technology, built-in decor, and full bar service. All offer top-notch service and are perfect for breakout meetings, cocktail receptions, and icebreakers.
For truly memorable business events on board Disney Wonder, Broadway-quality lighting and laser systems, plus digital surround sound with video and film support for presentations, are also available.
Dining & Entertainment Experiences
After meetings and adventures ashore, your group will enjoy complimentary dining in restaurants like Animator’s Palate, where the artwork comes to life, and Tiana’s Place, where live music will surely get you out of your seat!
Our dinner was hosted at a different themed restaurant each evening while the wait staff and the same table guests rotated with us, creating a bond that would lead to heartfelt, teary-eyed goodbyes on our final day. There was something for every palate, from fine dining to buffets and snack bars. The food was exquisite, and our friendly and accommodating staff met my every need.
When it’s time for evening entertainment, Disney shines! There is something to keep everyone in your group entertained, whether they choose live Disney productions, Disney’s Pirate-Themed deck party (pictured), interactive game shows, or comedy acts – all complimentary. I even had the opportunity to meet my favorite Disney characters, who made surprise appearances throughout the ship.
An Inspiring and Memorable Cruise Experience
The next morning, I woke up feeling sad to leave the ship and the magical world it had created for me. On the other hand, I felt grateful for the memories I had made and the experiences I had shared with my fellow passengers.
Overall, my experience sailing on the Disney Wonder was magical. The attention to detail, quality of the amenities, extraordinary dining and entertainment, and friendliness of the staff all combined to create a truly unforgettable experience.
If you’re looking for an adventure combining luxury, entertainment, and a bit of pixie dust, a Disney Wonder cruise is the perfect choice for meetings, incentives, and groups of all ages.
