    We have been on other tropical vacations where you have to get up super early just to get chairs by the pool or beach. We are traveling on the Disney Wonder next month - will we run into this problem on the boat or at Castaway Key?

    Ahoy, Jennifer!

    I just recently disembarked the newly re-imagined Disney Wonder, and I'm so excited for you to set sail on this wondrous vessel real soon. I was completely wowed by everything including the new dining venue, Tiana's Place with its Louisiana-inspired food, charming decor, live band and a visit from Tiana herself. I really can't pick a favorite from our dinner there because everything was amazing especially the beignets! Another highlight from my sailing was seeing the brand-new Broadway-style show, Frozen, A Musical Spectacular. Be sure to arrive early to secure a seat close to the action because you won't want to miss a second of seeing your favorite Frozen friends onstage including Olaf and Sven!  

    When you want to relax by the pools, you should not have a problem finding a reclining chair or lounger on either Deck 9 or 10. You may not get one right by the pool, but there are plenty available with options in the shade or sun. I've found that people come and go pretty often since there are lots of things to do on a Disney Cruise, so hopefully you'll be able to find the perfect spot to soak in your vitamin "sea." 

    I also have good news about Castaway Cay. There are more than enough beach chairs, loungers and umbrellas for you to use on the Castaway Family Beach, no matter what time you arrive. You'll find two loungers and two low sitting beach chairs grouped together, some with umbrellas and some without. We like to lounge under the umbrella first and then we pull the beach chairs down to the shore so we can get our toes in the sand and enjoy the refreshing water.

    It's almost time to escape the cold for a pixie dusted vacation with Mickey! Please write back if we can assist you again with your plans.

    Have a WONDERful day!
