Everything to Know About the Disney Wonder
March 29, 2024

Here at Get Away Today we love exploring the variety Disney Cruise Line has to offer. From amazing Disney Cruise Line ships, gorgeous ports of call all over the world, outstanding on board entertainment and dining experiences, our Cruise team knows every in and out of cruising with Disney.

Disney Cruise Line currently sails these ships in their fleet, with more announced for future sailings:

Today, we’re taking a closer look at the Disney Wonder. Keep reading our Disney Wonder review to find out more about the state rooms, dining, entertainment and more.

Disney Wonder Quick Look

Renowned for its classic design, modern innovation and timeless whimsy, the Disney Wonder is home to 11 decks overflowing with restaurants, pools, recreation and more—ready to transport you to exotic locales waiting to be explored.
  • Set Sail: 1999, with reimagined space in 2016
  • Sleeps up To: four in Standard Inside Stateroom or up to seven in the Concierge 2-Bedroom Suite with Verandah
  • Ports of Call: Alaska, Mexico, Caribbean
  • Best Price Guarantee: Yes, when you book your cruise with Get Away Today
Weighing in at over 83,000 tons, The Disney Wonder is almost the exact same size as its sister ship, the Disney Magic. The ship fits up to 2,700 passengers in its 875 staterooms at full capacity.

The crew is not included in that number and usually stands around 1,000 members. You read that right – one staff member for every 2.7 guests. The large crew and attention to detail are just a few reasons why Disney Cruise Line is known for its service.

The Disney Wonder was the second ship to join the Disney fleet in 1999. Her maiden voyage led her to the Bahamas, but she’s traveled to many more ports since then and underwent a complete refurbishment in late Fall 2016.

Disney Wonder Staterooms

The 875 staterooms on the Disney Wonder can be broken down into four types:
  • Inside
  • Oceanview
  • Verandah
  • Concierge
Each category is then broken down into even more selections, such as standard and deluxe rooms. It can seem overwhelming if you don't know what you're looking for, so we've broken it down for you below:

Disney Wonder Inside Staterooms

Inside staterooms are located inside the Disney Wonder ship and do not offer a window or balcony to the outside. When selecting an inside stateroom on the Disney Wonder, you’ll be able to choose from either standard or deluxe options. Below are details on each and how they differ.

Disney Wonder Standard Inside Staterooms
  • Sleeps up to four
  • 184 square feet
  • Queen bed, single sleeper sofa and upper-berth pull-down bed when sleeping four
  • Category 11A on Decks 6 and 7, 11B on Decks 5 and 6, and 11C on Deck
  • Accessible options are offered in categories 11A and 11B
  • Full bathroom with vanity, sink, shower and tub
  • Sitting area with couch, desk and TV
  • Privacy curtain between sitting area and sleeping space

Disney Wonder Deluxe Inside Staterooms

  • Sleeps up to four
  • 214 square feet
  • Queen bed, single sleeper sofa and upper-berth pull-down bed when sleeping four
  • Category 10A on Decks 5, 6 and 7, 10B on Deck 2, and 10C on Decks 1 and 2
  • Accessible staterooms are offered in category 10A
  • Split bath, although deluxe accessible staterooms offer full bath
  • Sitting area with couch, desk and TV
  • Privacy curtain between sitting area and sleeping space
The biggest difference between the inside cabin types are the size and bathroom configuration. These may not make the biggest difference for couples, but can be big decision factors for families of three or four.

Disney Wonder Oceanview Deluxe Staterooms

Only Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms can be found on the Disney Wonder. These cabins are very similar to the Deluxe Inside Staterooms, except they offer a view outside of the ship. If you are worried about sea sickness, consider booking at least an oceanview stateroom.
  • Sleeps up to four
  • 214 square feet
  • One large porthole window or two small porthole windows (found in category 9D staterooms)
  • Queen bed, single sleeper sofa and upper berth pull-down bed when sleeping four
  • Category 9A on Decks 5, 6 and 7, 9B on Deck 2, 9C on Deck 2, and 9D on Deck 1
  • Accessible staterooms are offered in category 9A
  • Split bath, except for in accessible staterooms
  • Sitting area with couch, desk and TV
  • Privacy curtain between the sleeping and sitting areas

Disney Wonder Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah

If you'd like some outdoor space with your room, then a Verandah Stateroom is the choice for you. The Disney Wonder offers two categories, where square footage is the main difference. Let’s take a look.
  • Sleep up to four
  • 268 square feet
  • Private verandah with full view (category 7A staterooms provide limited views)
  • Queen bed, single sleeper sofa and upper berth pull-down bed are provided when sleeping four
  • These staterooms are offered in category 5A on Deck 7, 5B on Decks 6 and 7, 5C on Decks 5 and 6, 6A on Decks 5, 6 and 7, and 7A on Decks 5, 6 and 7
  • Accessible staterooms are available in category 6A
  • Split bath, except for in accessible staterooms where a full bath is offered
  • Sitting area with couch, TV and desk
  • Privacy curtain between sitting and sleeping space

Disney Wonder Deluxe Family Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah

  • Sleeps up to five
  • 304 square feet
  • Private verandah with full view
  • Queen bed, single sleeper sofa, wall pull-down bed and upper berth pull-down bed
  • Categories 4A, 4B and 4E, all on Deck 8
  • Accessible staterooms are available in category 4E
  • Split bath, although accessible staterooms will have a full bath instead
  • Sitting area with desk, couch and TV
  • Privacy curtain between sleeping space and sitting area
Again, the biggest difference here is in the size of each stateroom. Depending on price, it may be worth it to upgrade to the Family Staterooms to have more room to spread out.

Disney Wonder Concierge Staterooms

The last staterooms on the Disney Wonder are the Concierge Staterooms. If you’re looking for a splurge to make your Disney Cruise even more magical, this may be it.

On top of the extra room in these suites, you’ll get access to extra amenities. Things like down duvets, personal robe and slippers, access to the media library, complimentary WiFi service (up to 100mb), dedicated Concierge team and the ability to begin planning 120 days prior to sail date.

Disney Wonder Dining

Amid fanciful restaurants, savor gourmet dining and casual bites—all with a dash of Disney whimsy. Let’s dig into the dishes based on each type of dining.

Casual Dining on Disney Wonder

This boardwalk-themed restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and even dinner if you’d prefer not to stick to your Main Dining selection. The entrees are diverse and include vegetarian options. All items, except for specialty drinks and cocktails, are included.

Daisy’s De-Lites
Daisy serves up healthy food – like salads, sandwiches and fruit – between meals. It’s the perfect balance to eating ice cream every hour.

Soft Drink Station
Another thing we love about Disney Cruise Line are the soft drink stations that are open 24 hours a day. Having soda included with your cruise is huge perk to Disney Cruise Line.

Eye Scream Treats
That hourly ice cream break we just mentioned? Here’s where you’ll find it. And just like almost everything else on the Disney Wonder, this sweet treat is included so you don’t have to worry about breaking the bank on ice cream.

Pete’s Boiler Bites
Open for lunch, dinner and anytime in between, Pete’s offers classic fare like hamburgers, hot dogs and chicken tenders.

Pinocchio’s Pizzeria
Nobody will judge you if you enjoy the pizza from this spot every day of your cruise. Pepperoni, vegetarian, Hawaiian, plain cheese… No lie, Pinocchio's has it all.

The snack bar is located right outside the Walt Disney Theatre and sells items at an additional charge. It is great if you’re wishing for some popcorn or soda during a show.

Main Dining on Disney Wonder

Each night you’ll rotate between the main dining restaurants for dinner. Dining times are typically 6:00 pm and 8:15 pm. If you have the first dining time, you'll be assigned the second show time and vice versa.

You might consider the second dining time for two main reasons. One, your kids might be more alert for the shows. Two, if you choose the second seating, your servers can rush dinner out for your kids and they have the option to go to the Oceaneers Club. The counselors will even come pick them up at the restaurant for you so you can continue with dinner. That may have been the most magical of all!

The Disney Wonder offers three main dining restaurants:

Animator’s Palate
Disney animation is the star of the show here, supported by amazing food and unique entertainment. This restaurant is a favorite that can be found on all of the Disney Cruise Line ships.

Get Away Today staff shares,
“We ate at Animator's Palate twice and experienced two different themed nights. Animator's Palate has their own show that includes animated characters coming to life on the walls of the restaurant. We also got to experience Pirate Night here, which was really cool. The walls became screens that featured some of Disney's most famous pirate scenes.”

Tiana’s Place
Exclusive to the Disney Wonder and inspired by The Princess and the Frog, Tiana’s Place was added during the 2016 refurbishment. You’ll enjoy a Louisiana-inspired menu alongside live jazz music.

Get Away Today staff shares,
”This restaurant transports you to the bayou from Princess and the Frog. The atmosphere was incredible, as was the food and entertainment. Do yourself a favor and order two of Tiana's buttermilk beignets.”

Dine under the sea at another Disney Wonder exclusive inspired by a Disney classic. Themed after The Little Mermaid, Triton’s is also open during breakfast and lunch for non-rotational dining.

Get Away Today staff shares,
“Triton's is a semi-formal dining room that features a larger than life mosaic of a scene from The Little Mermaid. It's pretty spectacular. We had two dinners here, each with a different themed menu. My favorite dinner of the cruise was here on our final night with their French inspired menu. Be sure to try the fried brie.”

Exclusive Dining on Disney Wonder

For something extra magical or even a celebration, there are several reservation restaurants available, some for an additional fee.

Royal Court Royal Tea
Little princes or princesses (ages 3 to 12) receive a few royal gifts as they join their favorite Disney characters for a tea party. Other members of the family are welcome to attend the tea party as well. While this tea party is an additional cost, it includes a chance to meet one-on-one with the princesses and is a favorite of many.

Character Dining
One character breakfast is included on select 7-night Disney Wonder sailings that include at least two days at sea. This is available for no additional charge, but a ticket and reservation is required.

The adult-exclusive restaurant features Northern Italian cooking and spectacular sea views. Pricing begins at an additional $45 per person and you won’t want to forget to dress to impress—formal or semi-formal attire is required. It’s sure to be the best date night on the sea!

Room Service
Craving an early breakfast? Or maybe a midnight chocolate chip cookie? The Disney Wonder provides 24/7 room service to every stateroom. The best part is that most items – including those midnight chocolate chip cookies – are included in the price of your cruise.

Disney Cruise Line is known for their food and service, which is why you can be sure you won’t be disappointed at any of these options. Especially when you follow them up with Disney’s world-class entertainment.

Disney Wonder Entertainment

We all know that Disney Parks tend to go big or go home and Disney Cruise Line is no different. On the Disney Wonder, you’ll find deck parties, Broadway-caliber shows, the chance to meet Disney characters and more.

Here’s a breakdown of all the fun to be had aboard.

Mickey’s Sail-A-Wave Party!... A Bon Voyage Celebration
Get ready to party when you step onto the Disney Wonder! You’ll be joined by Disney characters who are ready to celebrate the beginning of your cruise.

Pirate Night
Check your itinerary for this swashbuckling event. Your entire family will want to dress the part as this event spans through dinner and into the night. Pirate-themed games, meet-and-greets and more will end with a spectacular fireworks show. Just be aware that fireworks are not permitted on some Alaskan sailings on the Disney Wonder.

Pixar Pals Party
This party is exclusive to Alaska sailings on the Disney Wonder and promises a fun time with all the Pixar pals your family loves.

Seasonal Celebrations
If you’re going on a Very Merrytime, New Year’s Eve or Halloween on the High Seas itinerary, make sure to check the daily schedule for additional seasonal deck parties.

The Golden Mickeys
Celebrate Disney movies in all their glory with this Hollywood-style awards show. There’s even a red carpet for your family to flaunt their style before the big event!

Disney Dreams – An Enchanted Classic
Both young and old family members will enjoy this musical and its reminder to always believe. After all, no one can beat Disney at inspiration.

Frozen, A Musical Spectacular
One of the newest offerings, this musical is exclusive to Disney Wonder and has been praised by families and critics alike.

Disney Wonder Clubs and Lounges

Family cruising with Disney doesn’t have to mean everything is a family event. There is plenty of space to explore onboard specific for all ages, adults only, kids only and even some teen only spaces.

Adults only are welcome to Azure where drinks, dancing and live music can be found in this lively nightclub.

Cadillac Lounge
Another adults only location you’ll find live piano music and a taste of Hollywood glitz night after night.

“it’s a small world” Nursery

Oceaneer Club and Lab
This kids only location caters to children ages 3-12. Kids will love hanging out with Disney Characters each day. They can explore Andy’s Room, Marvel’s Super Hero Academy, Disney Junior or Frozen Adventures in this fun area.

It’s the perfect spot for tweens and tweens with a space imagined just for them. This hangout offers a space for movies, crafts, games and hanging out with other kids their age Teens and tweens ages 11-14 only.

Teens ages 15-17 will have a blast at Vibe, whether it’s listening to music, dancing or competing with other teens to get the highest video game score. The decor matches the name, it’s a total Vibe.

Disney Wonder Pools & Amenities

Carefree days at sea mean leisurely afternoons by the pool or It’s just one way to spend your day aboard Disney Wonder

Make a splash in the middle of the ocean! At Goofy’s Pool, the whole family can participate in splash-tastic activities or make waves all on their own. Pint-sized paddlers can ride the double-looping Twist ‘n’ Spout slide at AquaLab and Dory's Reef! And adults? They have their very own exclusive swim spot at Quiet Cove Pool.

There are even options to stay shipshape and lose yourself to sweeping ocean views at the full-service fitness center, featuring state-of-the-art weight machines and instructional classes. In addition, The Wide World of Sports Deck has plenty of space for a pick-up game, ping-pong match or enjoying ocean views.

One more tip for your Disney Wonder cruise, download the Disney Cruise Line app before your trip. It serves as both a personal navigator and a communication tool throughout your cruise. All you have to do is download the app before your cruise, and it becomes activated once you are on your ship. You'll just turn your phone on airplane mode and use the Disney Cruise Line Guest Wi-Fi.

You will be able to view all of the scheduled activities, meal times, menus, shows and more for each day of the cruise. You can even favorite which activities and the app will send you a reminder 15 minutes prior to the activity beginning.

The app also served as a free messaging service that you can use to communicate with other guests aboard the ship. You are assigned a specific messaging number (different from your stateroom number) which makes meeting up much easier.
