Disney Wonder Announces Major Changes Coming After Dry Dock This Fall – Marvel, Tiana’s Place, And More

A couple of years ago, the Disney Magic went into dry dock and came out with a whole new look. Everyone has been curious as to when the Disney Wonder would get the same treatment from Disney Cruise Line, and now, we know it is happening very soon and it’s going to be awesome.

Beginning on Sept. 9, 2016, the Disney Wonder will go into dry dock over in Cadiz, Spain, and it will stay there through Oct. 23, 2016. After that, it will return to Galveston with a brand new restaurant, new kid’s areas, new slide, and so much more.

The Disney Parks Blog has reported that Parrot Cay will be changing to Tiana’s Place Restaurant, and it is going to be insanely awesome.

Tiana’s Place restaurant – inspired by Princess Tiana in “The Princess and the Frog” – will transport you to an era of southern charm, spirited jazz and street party celebrations. Here you’ll be treated to New Orleans dining and entertainment, with live music creating a French Quarter supper club atmosphere.

Chefs will cook up Tiana’s recipes, drawing inspiration from the flavors and ingredients of the Louisiana bayou. Tiana’s personal touch will be evident in the menu, the entertainment and throughout every detail in the restaurant.

Next up, there are some serious changes coming to Disney’s Oceaneer Club as it is getting a huge makeover into the Marvel Super Hero Academy.

With the mentorship of some of Marvel’s greatest Super Heroes, young trainees will learn the value of teamwork, bravery and problem solving through hands-on play and programs.

Spider-Man will appear in person to help children hone their spider senses by perfecting their skills of reflex, speed and sharp minds. Other Marvel Super Heroes will interact with children via a large digital display. In one program, kids can control the movement of a character on screen to practice super skills like repulsor-blasting.

For the little ones that want even more, there are going to be other areas themed after Toy StoryFrozen, and Disney Jr.

  • Frozen Adventures is where fun takes the form of imaginative play and hands-on activities. On the digital screen, Olaf leads summer-y games with a wintery twist and a sing-a-long of “In Summer.”
  • In another festive activity, young guests prepare for a coronation and receive a truly royal and in-person visit by Anna and Elsa.
  • Club Disney Junior features favorite Disney Junior characters, storytelling and games. During one activity, Doc McStuffins pays a visit to the club to help children diagnose and treat the stuffed animals.
  • Andy’s Room where kids feel toy-sized in the multi-level play space themed to the Disney•Pixar “Toy Story” trilogy. As a special treat, Woody appears in person to join youngsters in a hoedown and Jesse stops by to join in a scavenger hunt.

Adults don’t need to feel left out as there is also going to be a brand new bar for them to enjoy throughout the day and into the night at Cheers, to an English Pub.

The adult district includes a brand-new pub that invites you to take a jaunt to an authentic English tavern. The space is adorned with dark woods, plush leather furniture and brass accents, and subtle nods to classic Disney films set in London can be found in artwork and props. British and specialty beers create the perfect pub atmosphere, where adults can sip a pint, or sample a brew made especially for the pub.

But wait…there’s more as the Disney Parks Blog has announced that there will be changes and enhancements from one end to the other.

The ship’s upper decks also will be redesigned for waterful fun:

  • Twist ‘n’ Spout water slide provides splashtacular fun
  • Dory’s Reef is a splash zone that offers fanciful water play for toddlers
  • AquaLab is a pool and interactive water play area for kids and families

For those wanting to experience the new Disney Wonder, you can do so later this fall as the first sailing is out of Galveston, Texas, on Nov. 10, 2016. From there, sailings will continue to the Bahamas and Caribbean into the new year.

On Jan. 20, 2016, the Disney Wonder will sail to San Juan, Puerto Rico and then at the end of January, it will land in Port Canaveral for the spring.
