    We head out on the Wonder this weekend and have a few questions- 1) How soon after we board can we get into our room? 2) can we eat anywhere at anytime and it’s covered? 3) what activities are best for a 4 yo?

    Hi there, Shannon!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Your trip is SO SOON!  A few more sleeps and then you’ll be sailing away on a WONDERful adventure at sea with Captain Mickey!  I am so thrilled for you!

    Once you board the ship, you’ll have some time to explore and grab some lunch while awaiting access to your room.  Rooms are typically ready at approximately 1:30pm, and your luggage will be delivered throughout the afternoon.  If you’re planning on swimming or need some spare clothes or items, I suggest carrying on a day bag with those necessary items for the afternoon.  

    Your dining is included with your reservation and you will receive a rotational schedule for your dinner which will be noted on your Key to the World Card you receive when you check in at the port.  You will eat dinner at one of the main dining rooms each night unless you opt to have an adult-only brunch or dinner at Palo which is currently an additional $30/per person, but always subject to change.  Breakfast and lunch are served at either Cabanas buffet or a main dining room restaurant.  You can order room service which is included aside from prepackaged snacks and drinks. Alcohol, bottled water and speacialty coffees are an additional cost, billed to your stateroom.    

    Register your four-year old for the onboard Youth Clubs for fun playing, doing arts and crafts and meeting new friends in the Oceanner Club and Lab.  Character Greetings and Character dance parties are so much fun as well! Download the Navigator app for detailed times and schedules for onboard fun!

    Happy Sailing!
