    Hi! Going to Alaska in May 2023 aboard the Disney Wonder and my family and I are so excited! Will there be a character dining experience available and is this something I need to reserve ahead of time? Thank you in advance for your help!

    Welcome aboard, Joyce! 

    I’m so happy to see your question because I just booked an Alaskan Cruise on the Disney Wonder for the summer of 2023, too! I hope you like wildlife because you will be amazed by how many bald eagles you’ll see in port. So many that a tour guide called them the pigeons of the north.

    I know that in the past, they have offered a Character Breakfast in Animator’s Palate featuring Mickey Mouse and the gang. I reached out to Disney Cruise Line Guest Services to see if I could get any information about your sailing. It appears that those details are still under lock and key. However, they assured me that if there is a Character Breakfast, you can reserve it when your advance booking window opens. Your advance booking window is determined by your Castaway Club membership level, as specified below.

    - First-Time Guests: 75 days prior to sail date
    - Silver Castaway Club Members: 90 days prior to sail date
    - Gold Castaway Club Members: 105 days prior to sail date
    - Concierge Guests and Platinum Castaway Club Members: 120 days prior to sail date

    The Disney Wonder is home to one of my favorite restaurants, Tiana’s Place. You’re in for a toe-tapping southern cooking feast influenced by the French Quarter. While my husband and I can never agree on the best dish, we both agree that the beignets for dessert are divine! 

    Joyce, I am so excited about your sailing to Alaska this summer. If you have any additional planning questions, please visit us again. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! My name is Tracie! I couldn't agree more with Moana: The sea calls me. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether eating gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or soaking up a little vitamin SEA on deck, every destination provides us with memories to last a lifetime.
