Disney Wonder Tour

I was invited to visit Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Wonder to see Frozen: A Musical Spectacular, to have lunch in the new Tiana’s Place, and to take a tour of the ship. (Except for tolls and gas, Disney Cruise Line issued me and a guest Media credentials and covered all of the expenses of the visit.) The ship is as impressive as its twin, Disney Magic that I toured last year. The show is broadway-caliber with a good cast, with very impressive special effects and an on-stage costume change that got a round of applause. Tiana’s Place (the restaurant) is drawn from Disney’s The Princess and the Frog, down to the menu — with top-notch service and a live jazz band (introduced by Tiana, of course). Like last year’s tour of Disney Magic at Port Canaveral, in addition to the ship, I got a nice photo of NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building at neighboring Kennedy Space Center. With the rest of the media, was escorted off the ship before its sailing that afternoon.

Disney Magic Tour

I was invited to visit Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Magic to see Tangled: The Musical, to have lunch in the Animator’s Palate, and to take a tour of the ship. (Except for tolls and gas, Disney Cruise Line issued me a Media credential and covered all of the expenses of the visit.) The ship is impressive. The show is broadway-caliber with a top-notch cast, a score by Alan Menken, impressive costumes and sets that mixes physical and digital elements. Animator’s Palate (the restaurant) is quite a sight to see — the food was a sampler of the ship’s major restaurants and I only ate a small sampling of that, but the service here was top-notch too and then there was the video-based animation which included the works drawn by every guest in the room mixed with classic Disney animated scenes. During the tour, in addition to the ship, I got some nice photos of NASA’s Vehicle Assembly Building at neighboring Kennedy Space Center. With the rest of the media, was escorted off the ship before its sailing this afternoon. March 17, 2016.
