Re-imagined Disney Wonder – Day 4

Re-imagined Disney Wonder – Day 4

Today is our last full day aboard this beautiful ship, and also a sea day. While those are very relaxing, this morning is jam packed! We decided to add-on to our Disney Vacation Club membership by purchasing points at Disney’s Polynesian Resort Villas. We arrived for our 8:30 appointment to find that they did not have things ready and we had to come back at 12:30 to finalize our contract.

Next up was our Gingerbread House activity. It was full! They did not have a microphone or screen for the Chef demonstrating, so everyone was pretty much on their own unless they were right near the demonstration table. Crew members did walk around and offer assistance. We worked on ours for about 30 minutes and then were off to our Palo Brunch reservation.

Brunch at Palo is our favorite meal on board the ships. They now offer a menu of the freshly prepared meals, but it is still unlimited, and you can order at any time.

As Platinum Castaway members, we were also invited to see the dress rehearsal of the new Frozen, A Musical Spectacular show at 11:00 a.m. My daughter and my husband sped through brunch to attend, while I grazed over my meal until about 11:40 a.m. Of course, no photos were permitted of the dress rehearsal, but Chelsea loved it and was excited to see it again this evening.

Frozen!

We returned at 12:30 p.m. to sign our DVC paperwork and finally had a little downtime. The new show did live up to the hype! I wish we could share video or photos, but none are allowed in the Walt Disney Theater. You can learn more from a few clips and information online. After the performance, we finished this amazing cruise with dinner at Tiana’s Place.

I think Disney did a remarkable job re-imagining the Disney Wonder. Honestly, it may be my new favorite ship! I hope you have the opportunity to be on board for a Disney Cruise Line vacation soon!

Stars Among Us – Best Sea Day Ever!

Stars Among Us – Best Sea Day Ever!

Today was our last day at sea. I was woken up by my alarm reminding me of our character meet and greets. Fortunately, they were an hour early (my phone time is all messed up with the time changes). That gave me time to drag myself out of bed (Will skipped it all) and to get ready. We had pictures with the Princesses (Rapunzel, Belle, Cinderella, and Merida). After those, we had tickets to the Frozen Meet and Greet (Olaf and Anna & Elsa) with a bonus Daisy Duck thrown in there.

We went to breakfast at Cabanas around 10:30. After, we went to O’Gills to pay TV Tunes trivia. We did pretty well but did not win. After trivia we went back to the room to start packing. Packing up 12 days worth of life is a big job! Once we had everything ready to start packing, we decided to grab lunch at Lumiere’s.  Lunch was pretty busy and took a little longer than anticipated, but was good.

We had an exciting surprise in our Navigator today – A Frozen Magical Journey featuring Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez – the songwriting team for Frozen (and so much more!). It was a fantastic program with them sharing early storyboard ideas, songs that didn’t make the movie, and upcoming plans (Frozen II and Frozen on Broadway in 2018). Unfortunately, there were no cameras allowed for this event. Those who skipped this missed a very special event.

I am going to run around the ship and take a few last pictures. It has been a great cruise, but I am ready to head toward home.

Tomorrow we are doing a Disembarkation tour of Copenhagen, Denmark and will fly to London for one last night in Europe.
