    Hello I went for Disney Cruise the Wonder in March 2023. For my stateroom, at the cabinet room, there was a sofa that could turn into a bed. I was wondering where could I buy the sofa bed and also the Disney Cruise blanket? Thank you for the help.

    Well ahoy there Christine, and welcome to planDisney!

    It's so great to have you back on land, and especially to hear that you loved sailing aboard the Disney Wonder so much, you wanted to take a piece of her home with you! The Disney Wonder was my very first Disney Cruise Line ship and after my first voyage, I can definitely say that I found myself in the same boat in search of treasures that I wanted to keep at home. (Pardon the pun, I would never incorrectly refer to a ship as a boat!) Even as I look back on the planDisney Pocket Guide for the Disney Wonder, I am reminded how much I desperately wanted that distinct red blanket with its nautical motifs so badly that I was willing to pay for it, if I were given the opportunity. 

    Alas, I am sad to say that neither the signature Disney Cruise Line blanket nor the single sleeper sofas found in the staterooms are currently available for guests to purchase through any direct, or official merchandise channels. In fact, some of the larger stateroom furnishings were custom designed and pre-installed directly and securely within each cabin unit as a whole and then fitted directly into the ship's hull in blocks. You can not only see a bit of this in action on the National Geographic documentary titled Making the Wish: Disney's Newest Cruise Ship on Disney+, but also watch and imagine how difficult it would be for someone to just purchase one of these pre-fitted sofa beds! 

    However, that isn't to say that budding buccaneers and sea smugglers haven't been able to get their hands on lucrative ship furnishings of their own. I certainly do not recommend removing any of the ship's property during your voyage, especially as your luggage is subject to security checks or screening and may result in fines and/or charges. Instead, I might be able to offer you a bit of nautical knowledge that may help you in the direction of the prized mementos you seek. After nearly a decade of experience at sea you'll find that every few years, each ship is set to undergo a process called "dry dock". This is the opportunity for dry dock repairs, inspections and refurbishments to be made along with any enhancements to the ship's look or experiences on board. In the past, I have personally observed ships replacing furniture pieces, linens and flatware that may either be disposed of or somehow make their way into various antique shops. I've even experienced a double-take as I passed by a very familiar coffee table with a distinct compass design in the least likely of places.

    I recommend commencing your search online to seek out your treasures, and please come back to planDisney to let me know if you were successful in hunting them down, and ask me any other questions you might have ahead of your next voyage. Be sure to reach out to Tracie and Adrianna, our very own Disney Cruise Line Specialists with their own tips and tricks out at sea!

    All the best on your treasure-hunting quest!
