I “wonder” what will be exciting for this fall?? Ha! Ha! Well, this fall, new incredible experiences for the entire family are coming to the Disney Wonder. Here are just a few new things to look for:
Marvel Super Hero Academy
Just on the Disney Wonder you will find the Marvel universe come to life in the Marvel Super Hero Academy. This is where your little ones can train to develop the adventurous and always brave heroes that are inside each of them. This new addition to the Oceaneer Club will offer even more engaging and interactive activities for your children. One is an integral role with mentors being some of Marvel’s greatest heroes in person and via a large digital display that is interactive (I love technology!). Lessons learned will be the value of teamwork, problem solving and great bravery through programs just for them! For example one mission has Spider-Man will appear in person to help children find their “spider senses” by working on their skills of reflex, sharp minds and spidey speed. As they work on their web-slinging, they get to see themselves in the headlines of the “Daily Bugle.” It’s pretty cool!! Throughout the academy, you will find displays of Captain America’s World War II shield, Iron Man’s helmet, Spider-Man’s web shooters and Black Widow’s gauntlets.
More Oceaneer Club Fun
Even more new play spaces and more character interactions than ever before can be found on the Wonder for those ages 3-12. Frozen Adventures with Olaf leading games and sing-a-longs on a digital screen and others can help plan a visit for the royal sisters, Anna and Elsa. In the Club Disney Junior they can find their favorite Disney Junior characters, games, storytelling, and even help Doc McStuffins diagnose and treat the stuffed animals when she pays a visit to the club. And then in Andy’s Room (where kids feel toy-sized in the multi-level play space themed from the “Toy Story” movies) can have a hoedown with Woody and Jesse in person to join in a scavenger hunt. I love how the kids can not only meet their favorite movie characters but also get to “play”, dance, sing and more with them!
New Nursery Theme
A new “it’s a small world” nursery will make the your youngest light up in delight with a new whimsical world inspired by the style of the legendary theme park attraction. Who doesn’t love that ride??!!
Tiana’s Place Restaurant
Another Disney Wonder exclusive, Tiana’s Place restaurant will transport you to an era of jazz entertainment, southern charm, and street parties like no other. The menu is influenced by southern-style cuisine that is good for your body and soul – straight from the bayou, and showing you that “dreams and dishes come true.” Live music will set the tone of the French Quarter and you’ll be tapping your toes all night!
English Pub Cheers
The adult district includes a brand-new pub that invites you to take a jaunt to an authentic English tavern just like in bloody ole England! Along with the English dark woods, plush leather furniture and brass accents, you are certain to feel the friendly neighborhood pub experience when you walk through the door! An incredible selection of British and specialty beers by pint (or cocktails if you’d rather), also help to create that “perfect pub atmosphere.” I heard there will even be a pub exclusive brew for you to try!
Lastly, of course Disney does it right and has so much more to offer. Here are a few other enhancements that I will shortly list if you are interested:
After Hours – a new adult district featuring two new additions
An updated Senses Spa & Salon and a new Chill Teen Spa
Animator’s Palate main dining restaurant updated to introduce the popular “Drawn to Magic” and “Animation Magic” dinner shows
D Lounge enhanced for family games and entertainment
Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique providing magical makeovers for children

Cabanas casual dining location
Palo -the specialty restaurant has had a makeover with Venetian-inspired décor

The Disney Wonder will show off all these new enhancements 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.
