Carolyn and I took our second cruise to the
Bahamas in April 2003. It was a 3-Day/4-Night cruise.
Like our previous cruise, this was a combination Walt Disney
World and Bahamas package.
Leaving Disney World
We left Disney World from Animal Kingdom on
Thursday 24 Apr 2003
Our bus ride from Walt Disney World to Port
Canaveral took an hour
Our first view of the Disney Wonder

Boarding the Disney Wonder
Who else but Disney would think about boarding your ship via
some really big Mickey Mouse ears - Let's board the Wonder

Once we were on the ship, we headed straight for our
Our stateroom was 7063 - It was a very nice room with a
queen-sized bed and a sofa - We slept very well

Departing Port Canaveral
We headed topside for a Boarding-Party as we left Port
Carolyn waves goodbye to those waiting portside
It might have been April but it was an absolutely beautiful
day for setting sail from Port Canaveral
I knew what a ship's horn sounded like but I was surprised as
the Wonder sounded hers
It was the first seven notes of the song "When You Wish Upon a
Star" - Who else but Disney could surprise you like this
Just as soon as we embarked on the Disney Wonder, we had lunch
at Parrot Cay.
This was one of several restaurants on the Disney Wonder
Carolyn enjoyed her lunch - All of the food on the cruise was

We were assigned to sit with the same people at meals for the

The food was always Wonderful - and as much or as little as
Parrot Cay and Triton's Restaurant were both located on Deck
Tritons Restaurant on the Disney Wonder
A stroll on the deck before we head to Tritons - Carolyn
holds on for dear life
We rotated through three restaurants on the
Wonder for dinner during our cruise. We ate at Triton's on
Thursday evening, Animator's Palate on Friday evening, and
Parrot Cay on Saturday evening. Dinner was at 6:00 p.m. each
night. Our wait staff rotated with us.
Disney Cruise Line Dinner Tickets
Animator's Palate was located on Deck 4.
The color for the Animator's Palate was all black and white, but
as dinner and the evening progressed, everything became vividly
Can you tell we were early?

Meals were always delicious and attractive - my photos don't
do them justice
Walt Disney Theatre
After dinner each night, there was a show in the Walt Disney
Theatre on Deck 4
We were early so we stopped to take a few photos
Shows each night were based around Disney stories
The show for Thursday night was "Welcome Aboard"
The show for Friday night was "Hercules the Muse-ical"
The show for Saturday night was "Disney Dreams"
Around the Ship

There were Disney touches all around the ship
