What’s new on the completely reimagined Disney Wonder?
My family recently took a Disney Cruise aboard the Wonder to explore all the completely new and newly reimagined parts of the ship.
Having recently undergone the most extensive dry dock reimagining in Disney Cruise history, the Wonder has really upped it’s game for guests.
From adult areas to kids areas to the pool, new Broadway level Frozen show, and an entirely new dining experience; from stem to stern the Disney Wonder experienced a transformation.
Disney Wonder Adult Areas
The adult area was completely reimagined and renamed on the Wonder.
Now known as “After Hours,” the adult area includes two new destinations for adults, as well as a reimagined old favorite.
Azure is the Wonder’s “nightclub” destination for adults. Bingo during the day and dancing all night!
The Cadillac Lounge was on the Wonder, before, but it’s been completely reimagined.
The Cadillac Lounge is the “piano bar” on the Disney Wonder. Reminiscent of the Rat Pack in their heyday of the late 50’s, you can kick back and enjoy a cocktail and music in this fantastically themed adult destination.
Check out that bar!
Crown & Fin Pub
Crown & Fin is a classic British Pub on the Disney Wonder. Step inside this location and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported “across the pond” to a local spot in the British country side.
Disney Wonder Kids Areas
Completely reimagined for the new Disney Wonder, Disney stepped up all the kids areas from the youngest cruisers to the teens.
The Edge is Disney Cruise’s “tween” area. Originally, only available on the larger ships, the Fantasy and the Dream, now the entire Disney Cruise fleet has a “tween” club. Our kids (11 & 13) absolutely loved Edge and stayed there almost the entire cruise. With games and interactions geared towards their age group, they simply couldn’t resist!
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is an entirely new addition to the Disney Wonder. Turning little girls into princesses and sprinkling them with Pixie Dust.
You can also bring your little pirates up to Deck 10 for a Pirate’s League makeover on the Pirates IN the Caribbean night on the Wonder.
Oceaneers Club and Lab
The Oceaneer Club and Lab were both reimagined and now fully connected! No more checking your child out of one location to bring them across deck to the other. They can switch back and forth all they want with a connecting hallway! Never the need for a check out and back in.
Disney Cruise added so much to the Oceaneer Lab and Club. It’s hard to mention it all. A couple “must sees” in the Lab and Club include the all new Marvel Super Hero Academy and the Frozen Adventures section.
Also, be sure not to miss the Andy’s Room section. Copied from the very popular area on the Disney Magic, your kids will get to play with Andy’s toys and even climb up on his bed! It’s a “toy’s eye” view of the world!
Vibe is Disney Cruise’s teen area. Somewhat “hidden” in the red forward funnel, Vibe provides a great place for your 14-17 year old to chill with their new friends on the Disney Wonder.
Disney Wonder Pool Areas
The kids pool areas were completely remodeled as part of the dry dock for the Disney Wonder. A new water slide, main pool, an added splash park area, and a toddlers area all new to the Wonder.
Twist ‘N Spout Water Slide
The Twist ‘N Spout slide is the new primary water slide aboard the Wonder. A fun slide that originates from the aft funnel and comes down to the ninth deck with a splash!
The Aqua Lab is the splash zone for kids on the Wonder. A great place to cool off or spray your friends!
Dory’s Reef is the water park location for Disney Cruise’s youngest cruisers. Splash, slide, and dance your way to cooling off in this magical play area.
Disney Wonder Dining
Tiana’s Place is an entirely new dining experience on the Wonder that replaces Parrot’s Cay. With live jazz music, New Orleans favorites like shrimp and grits and jambalaya, and meet and greets with Tiana, herself, this is an experience not to be missed!
The Shrimp and Grits were awesome! Just a small portion, though, so you may need to order two!
Live music emanates from the main stage where even Tiana will hop up for a ditty or two.
Animators Palate has added the very popular Animation Magic show to the Disney Wonder. Only available on longer cruises (over 4 nights), the Animation Magic Show brings your characters to life! You’ll even get an “Official Animators” certificate at the end of your experience.
Disney Wonder Entertainment
Enhancing the Senses Spa and the D Lounge were part of the entertainment changes on the Disney Wonder, but the big news was the addition of the Frozen show in the Walt Disney Theatre!
Frozen the Show
It’s the story you know as told in a theater setting by fantastic Disney actors and actresses! We absolutely loved the Frozen show. Great music, excellent puppetry with Olaf, and magical enhancements to the Walt Disney Theatre make this a “can’t miss” experience on the Wonder. When you consider that the ship is moving while the actors/actresses perform this show, we’d say it’s even better than Broadway caliber!
The costumes for the Frozen, A Musical Spectacular were amazingly detailed!
