We recently came back from our sixth Disney Cruise on the Wonder. Here are my top five reasons to Disney Cruise!
1. The Characters!
On a Disney cruise, especially on one of the smaller boats, you have a greater chance of reducing your wait time to meet a character and increasing the amount of time you get to spend with them! Take a picture with them, talk to them, and interact! Priceless memories for Disney fans of all ages!
|Chip and Dale|
|Snow White, Ariel, and Cinderella|
2. The Food!
Let's admit it, most people love cruising for the 24/7 fantastic food available! As a foodie, the high end entrees and especially the desserts are incredible! Fast casual counter service and room service also is available!
|Truffle pasta purseilles, Beef Tenderloin, Sticky toffee pudding, mango cheesecake, chocolate walnut mousse cake|
|Charcuterie, tuna tartar, mushroom pasta, lobster salad|
|Pastries and desserts at Cove Cave|
|Cookies and Cream cake|
3. The Service!
Disney is a brand known for making family memories! All of that is in making sure they meet and exceed your expectations! EVERYONE is super friendly and will try to accommodate any of your requests! We have enjoyed exceptional service by our housekeeping and restaurant staff! Always a tidy room when you come back even from being away just for a short while! Love the chocolate and towel/blanket animals as part of the turn down service. Our Filipino server Roman indulged us with a Filipino dish of chicken/pork adobo and garlic rice during one of our dinners too! Disney has rotational dining for dinner at their three sit down restaurants. Your serving staff stays with you at the different restaurants. They get to know you pretty well! What you like to drink! I had my hot tea with lemon and honey ready when we would arrive. Want something from the kids' menu instead? You got it! They knew that I liked to order a dessert sampler too. One of everything please! All of them are contract employees that depend a lot on gratuities. We make sure we acknowledge their efforts through a hopefully generous tip at the end of the cruise.

4. The Entertainment!
Disney entertainment is unmatched! Their nightly shows are masterpieces! No filming or photographing allowed so I don't have pictures to show of the productions. However, I do have some pictures of their other activities available! They usually have a performance a dinner time, on the deck as well at night and some specialty classes! Our family attended the napkin folding class, a culinary demonstration, we played bingo and some trivia games with prizes awarded for the winners! Of course the pool and specialty clubs are available for the little ones and tweens.

|Broadway Guest Artist presentation!|

5. The ship is beautiful!
We have stayed in rooms with verandahs the last two or three cruises and I don't think I can do without a verandah now! I love watching and listening to the water! All of the ships are well appointed and they take great care in maintenance and keeping things looking good as new! Lots of places to enjoy on the ship!

There are so many other benefits to a Disney Cruise, I can go on and on, but these are my top five reasons! They are other lines that are more affordable, but for me Disney is the best! The food and shows alone are worth their value! I plan to continue Disney Cruising into my golden years! Thanks for reading!
