During our Alaska sailings, not only do you see some of the world’s most beautiful sights, but you also get to experience immersive Disney storytelling onboard. In addition to the Disney Wonder’s signature entertainment — including dinner and a show at Tiana’s Place and Broadway-style musicals like “Frozen, A Musical Spectacular” — Alaska sailings feature even more ways to step into the worlds of your favorite Disney stories.
Whether you’re a Mickey Mouse fan, a Pixar aficionado or prefer to just “Let it Go” with Elsa and friends, there is something special for you aboard these one-of-a-kind cruises. Here are a few of my favorite offerings:
Disney Pals Embrace the Spirit of The Last Frontier
Only on these itineraries can you find Mickey and friends in their best northern-themed finery. Mickey is decked out in Alaskan fisherman’s gear, Minnie dons a stylish parka, Goofy is geared up to explore a glacier and Donald is dressed to pan for gold… Everyone gets in on the fun!
Favorite Pixar Friends Join the Party
Exclusive to the Disney Wonder, the Pixar Pals Party gives guests the chance to hang out with all of their favorite Pixar characters in one spot! Hosted in the lobby atrium, this musical celebration includes friends from “Up,” “Toy Story” and “Ratatouille.”
A Full Day of “Frozen” Festivities
One day during every Alaska cruise, guests are transported to the land of “Frozen” for a day of fun with Anna, Elsa and friends. Highlights include a magical freeze that overtakes the atrium, exciting “Frozen”-themed activities and a dining experience inspired by traditional Nordic fare. The day culminates in a high-energy deck party where our friends from Arendelle take you along for a fun night of singing, dancing and games.
While the current Alaska season is nearly complete, the Disney Wonder will return to America’s Last Frontier next year with a variety of five-, seven- and nine-night itineraries departing from Vancouver, Canada. Which of these incredible onboard experiences are you most excited to try?
