Twenty-eight Disney cruises will depart from San Diego over the course of the next year. And, wow, are you going to want to get onboard.

The Disney Wonder ship is beautiful with large rooms, plenty of secluded space for adults while heaving with kid fun. I also like that some of the itineraries are as short as two nights, making it a doable weekend trip for San Diego residents or people on a San Diego vacation with a few days to spare.

How cool is that?

About the Disney Wonder Ship

Disney Wonder’s 11 decks overflow with recreation. This is only a fraction of what is available.

So Much Entertainment

Frozen, A Musical Spectacular is a show on the Disney Wonder ship which is the Disney cruise departing San Diego.

From fireworks at sea to Broadway caliber shows (like Frozen, A Musical Spectacular), expect to be entertained on Disney Wonder. Guests also enjoy character greetings, live performances, deck parties and 3-D movies inside of a luxurious theater.

Three Themed Pools

Disney cruises from San Diego are on the Disney Wonder ship. It has a new AquaLab water playground.

Of course, there’s the family pool where all can splash around together and a water slide just for kids. Believe it or not, even on a Disney cruise, there’s an adults-only pool!

Youth Clubs for All Ages

On the Disney Wonder, young guests get a special visit from Spider-Man while training at the Marvel Super Hero Academy in Disney's Oceaneer Club

Disney Wonder has supervised kids’ clubs for every age. “it’s a small world” Nursery entertains kids ages 6 months to 6 years (1 – 3 years old on the Panama itinerary) while parents enjoy some much-needed alone time. Disney’s Oceaneer Club for ages 3 – 12 lets kids ages 3-12 adventure into four lands including MARVEL’s Super Hero Academy, Andy’s Room, Frozen Adventures and Disney Junior.  Tweens watch movies, play games, craft and more at Edge while teens mingle at Vibe until 2:00 a.m.

It’s SO nice that various age groups have their own space.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on the Disney Wonder ship, which sails from San Diego.

Kids can enter this very special salon to be transformed into a princess, courageous knight or even a famous mouse. You can read about our Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique experience at Hong Kong Disneyland to get an idea of how it works.

Adults-Only Fun

San Diego Disney Cruises provide adults with plenty of alone time.

In addition to the quiet pool mentioned above, adults can unwind in a full-service spa and salon. They can enjoy drinks in the Crown & Fin British-style pub or Cadillac Lounge (featuring nightly live piano) in addition to dancing the night away at Azure.

Spacious Staterooms

Staterooms on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder are designed with nautical décor and plenty of usable space. Designed with style, comfort and a dash of Disney magic, staterooms include generous storage areas and premium bedding and linens. The innovative bath-and-a-half design is featured in nearly every stateroom on the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder.

Disney Wonder staterooms were designed with families in mind. There are 9 room types ranging from a standard inside stateroom (which is more spacious than same-class rooms on other cruise lines) to 2-bedroom suites with concierge privileges. Families also love the spacious bath-and-a-half design (featured in nearly every stateroom), nautical décor, generous storage areas, premium bedding and linens, and plenty of usable space.

Where a San Diego Disney Cruise Can Go

San Diego Disney Wonder cruises tour Baja and the Mexican Riviera with two sailing through the Panama Canal.

As part of Disney Cruise Line’s fall 2018 itineraries, the Disney Wonder will sail from San Diego to Baja and the Mexican Riviera with visits to Cabo San Lucas

On most Baja sailings, guests can visit Cabo San Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico to enjoy world-famous beaches and snorkeling.

Mexican Riviera itineraries feature snorkeling and scuba diving hot spots, while Puerto Vallerta and Mazatlan are where cliff divers, culture and zip lining through the jungle canopy take center stage.

And, how cool is it that you can depart San Diego, visit the Mexican Riviera along the way, cross through the Panama Canal, hit the Caribbean and land in Texas over the course of two weeks? The Panama Canal!

Friday departures for the two-night cruises also offer the ultimate weekend getaway from San Diego.
