I love any and all Disney Cruises. But I know that it’s important for each family to choose the cruise that’s right for them. Two key parts of that decision are your itinerary and cruise ship. If the itinerary is the most important factor for you, you'll want to make sure you select the best ship for you. How do you choose?

That’s where our guide comes in. We’ve gathered everything you could possibly want to know about the Disney Wonder and put it all in one spot. Room categories, dining, entertainment options and even refurbishment and first sailing dates can be found here.

Don’t be afraid to jump right in – I promise the water is warm. Plus, you’ll be that much closer to your Disney Cruise once you’ve learned about the Disney Wonder. Enjoy!

Disney Wonder History and Details

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.

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.

Staterooms on the Disney Wonder

The 875 staterooms on the Disney Wonder can be broken down into four types: inside, oceanview, verandah and 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:

Inside Staterooms on the Disney Wonder

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’s Standard Inside Staterooms

  • Sleep up to four
  • 184 square feet
  • Typically have a queen bed, single sleeper sofa and upper-berth pull-down bed when sleeping four
  • Can be found in 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

  • Sleep up to four
  • 214 square feet
  • Provides a queen bed, single sleeper sofa and upper-berth pull-down bed when four are in the cabin
  • Can be found in 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 instead
  • Sitting area with couch, desk and TV
  • Privacy curtain between sitting area and sleeping space

As you can see, 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 deal breakers for families of three or four.

Oceanview Staterooms on the Disney Wonder

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. Here are the specifications:

Disney Wonder Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms

  • Sleep 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 are offered when sleeping four
  • Can be found in 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

Verandah Staterooms on the Disney Wonder

If you'd like to sit outside 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:

Disney Wonder Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah

  • 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

  • Sleep families of five
  • 304 square feet
  • Private verandah with full view
  • Have queen bed, single sleeper sofa, wall pull-down bed and upper berth pull-down bed
  • Offered in 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.

Dining on the Disney Wonder

Speaking of dining, you have many options on the Disney Wonder. Here they are based on the type of dining:

Casual Dining on the Disney Wonder

Cabanas. 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.

Eye Scream Treats. That hourly ice cream break I 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.

Preludes. 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 - Each night, you’ll rotate between the main dining restaurants for dinner. 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.

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.

Triton’s. 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.

Exclusive Dining on Disney Wonder

Royal Court Royal Tea. Little princes or princesses (ages 3 to 12) can join their favorite Disney characters for a tea party. While this tea party is an additional cost, it includes a chance to meet one-on-one with the princesses and take home a few royal gifts.

Character Dining. One character breakfast is included on most 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.

Palo. The adult-exclusive restaurant features Northern Italian cooking and spectacular sea views. Pricing begins at an additional $30 per person and you won’t want to forget to dress to impress. 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 – did I mention midnight chocolate chip cookies – are included in the price of your cruise.
