    We are sailing on the Disney wonder and I would love to get up early one day to watch the sunrise over the ocean. Will the coffee shops be open that early (approx. 6AM)?

    Ahoy, Kate!

    Your "WONDER"ous voyage is this week! I recently returned from a sailing on the newly re-imagined Disney Wonder and know what a fantastic vacation you have to look forward to in just a few days. I'm still in awe over the new Broadway-style show, Frozen, A Musical Spectacular and the one-of-a-kind dining experience offered at Tiana's Place! Your mouth will be watering as soon as you open the menu, and the delectable desserts are the icing on the cake! I couldn't decide, so I tried two including the melt in your mouth Buttermilk Beignets! So delicious! 
    I love your idea to get up early to soak in a sunrise at sea with a warm cup of joe! The only time I've done it was on the upper decks relaxing on a lounge chair watching the sky come alive over the ocean. It was just so peaceful, and I did not mind missing a few hours of sleep to take it all in. Typically Cove Café, the coffee shop onboard, starts brewing around 7:00 a.m. except for disembarkation morning when it opens at 6:30 a.m. But, there are two other options for an early cup of java-room service and the 24-hour beverage station. You'll find hanging room service menus in your stateroom that allows you to pre-order a continental-style breakfast along with juice and coffee before turning in the night before, and you do pick a specific window for delivery. If you just want a cup of coffee, you can swing by the beverage station on Deck 9. The two spots I recommend to watch the sunrise are on Deck 10 like I mentioned above or Deck 4. This is one of my favorite spots on the ship because it takes you back to feeling like you are cruising on a classic oceanliner like Walt and Lillian Disney sailed on years ago. The wooden, padded loungers are very comfortable, and a perfect spot to gaze out at the stunning oceanviews. 

    Best wishes for a "WONDER"ful time this weekend!
