    Hi, my family just booked our first Disney Cruise Sept. 2017 for West Coast Vancouver to San Diego. We know some of the features on the Disney Wonder, do you have any advise, etc. about our cruise, what not to miss, etc? Thanks

    Ahoy Carmen!

    Oh my goodness, I get so excited when I hear someone is sailing with Captain Mickey for the first time! Thank you for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about your upcoming cruise aboard the newly re-imagined Disney Wonder! I'm happy to share any advice, as well as what not to miss, while sailing the beautiful California Coast!

    With regard to planning for your cruise, I suggest downloading the complimentary Disney Cruise Line Navigator app on your smart phone or tablet before setting sail. With this app, you'll be able to see a schedule of all the onboard activities, a complete deck plan of the ship, chat with other members of your party onboard who've also downloaded the app and so much more! I also suggest looking at the Port Adventures offered for your itinerary so you're ready to book all the fun as soon as your advance booking window opens!

    I think Vancouver is one of the most magical Ports of Call to set sail from! Dancing during the Sail-Away Celebration on embarkation day, while watching seaplanes fly overhead, would kick your cruise off to the greatest start! Another thing not to miss is the stage show, exclusive to the Disney Wonder, "Frozen, a Musical Spectacular".

    I hope these suggestions give you an idea of all the WONDERs you have to look forward to during your inaugural sailing with the Disney Cruise Line! If you find yourself having additional questions during your planning, please stop back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are so happy to help!
