Exclusively on the Disney Wonder, the line will add a Marvel Super Hero Academy, which will allow young guests to participate in adventures with Marvel super heroes like Spider-Man. In Disney’s Oceaneer Club, the line will add more live and in-person interactions, including visits from Anna, Elsa, Doc McStuffins, Jessie and Woody.
Also exclusively on the Disney Wonder, the ship will get a new restaurant. Called Tiana’s Place, it will be inspired by “The Princess and the Frog” and will offer a menu influenced by southern-style cuisine.
The ship’s will also add a new adult district, After Hours, with an English Pub, which will offer classic English bar fare, as well as subtle nods to classic Disney films set in London in artwork, props and other items throughout the space.
Other updates include a reimagined Senses Spa & Salon, as well as a new Chill Teen Spa. The Animator’s Palate main dining restaurant will also introduce the “Drawn to Magic” and “Animation Magic” dinner shows. The ship will also add a D Lounge for family games and entertainment, the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for makeovers, an Edge club for tweens, a Cabanas casual dining location, and a Palo specialty restaurant.
On the ship’s upper decks, new water features will include a Twist ’n’ Spout waterslide, a Dory’s Reef splash zone for toddlers, and an AquaLab pool and interactive play area.
After the Disney Wonder undergoes dry dock September 9 to October 23, 2016, in Cadiz, Spain, the wave of new enhancements debut on sailings starting November 10, from Galveston, Texas.
The Disney Wonder will continue to sail from Galveston to the Bahamas and Caribbean, until the ship sails to San Juan, Puerto Rico, on January 20, 2017. On January 26, 2017, a three-night cruise aboard the Disney Wonder takes guests from San Juan to Port Canaveral, FL, where the ship will homeport for the spring.
