Disney Wonder rules on the high seas
Not all Miami-based cruises have days at sea, so if you want to enjoy the ship, set out early, whether it’s for an excursion or just to browse around a port of call, so you have time to try out all the pools, entertainment and activities onboard before dinner.

Also not to be missed is the “Pirates IN the Caribbean” deck party, complete with dancing, Disney characters, food and fireworks at sea. Many guests dress up as pirates for Pirate Night, but if you don’t have a costume, your servers will get you in the pirate spirit by outfitting you with bandanas at dinner.

There are several 45-minute live musicals in the 977-seat Walt Disney Theatre. Our personal favorite was “Toy Story – The Musical.”

“Our guests are sometimes experiencing theater for the first time. This is the first time that their child has sat through a musical production…” Abbott said. “I think it’s a great opportunity to teach children about theater, live theater, theater etiquette and appreciation. … I truly believe our shows are second to none in the cruising industry. It’s a great opportunity for children to experience live theater for the first time and for adults to appreciate the quality of the shows that we do, as well.”

With a special touch of magic — or in our case, Wonder — that only Disney can do, sailing on a Disney cruise is sure to create lasting memories for you and your family.
