Just for Kids: On Board the Disney Wonder
While Disney Cruise Line was created for all ages, kids are the true target audience. That’s evident in the careful consideration and design of each age-appropriate children’s space on the Disney Wonder.
Infants have their own space at the Small World’s Nursery, which offers babysitting care for infants ages 6 months to 3 years (for an additional fee).
Disney’s Oceaneer Club and Oceaneer Lab are open to children ages three to 12 years old. Kids rotate with their age group throughout the spaces, and they can even eat meals at the club if mom and dad need some time alone.
Disney is all about storytelling, and the children’s spaces on the Disney Wonder bring some of its favorite stories to life. Kids can step into the story of Frozen at Wandering Oak’s Trading Post. Character programs take place in each space, such as a scavenger hunt with Olaf, or helping Anna and Elsa prepare for the coronation.
In the Club Disney Junior area, Disney Junior characters come to life with storytelling and games. And in Andy’s Room, kids feel like they are toy-sized in this multi-level space from “Toy Story.” Woody and Jessie make frequent appearances.
The biggest addition to the children’s program on the Disney Wonder is the Marvel Super Hero Academy. The Academy is led by favorite superheroes, from Spider Man to Black Widow. Kids undergo superhero training, with careful input from an ongoing stream of super heroes.
In one mission, Spider-Man helps his new recruits to hone their spider senses and increase the skills of reflex, speed and sharp minds. Children practice their web-slinging, and even see themselves in the headlines of the local paper.
The Edge is a space made just for tweens ages 11 to 14, where they can watch movies, play games and hang out with guests their age. Trained Disney kids’ leaders ensure a safe and fun experience.
Teens ages 14 to 17 have their own space as well. The Vibe, which is designed to resemble a laid-back urban loft, is the spot for teens-only dance parties, games, karaoke and other fun teens-only activities.
