Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- We are going on a 6 night cruise on the Wonder on October 11. I can't find information on what is offered on a 6 night, since most itineraries are 5 or 7 nights. Is there a formal night? Character breakfast or any other special events? Thanks!

- Welcome aboard, Amber! A six-night sailing aboard the Disney Wonder this fall will be such fun for your family. In fact, last year, I took my son on a Mommy-Son cruise on the Magic for six nights. We've cruised four nights, five nights and seven nights, but that was our first six-night and it was a great length!
While I don't have the exact attire rotation yet for your particular sailing, I can tell you that you can expect a Formal Night, Semi-Formal Night, Pirate Night, and a Character Breakfast. Character Breakfasts are typically on sea days. This is subject to change, so I do suggest you check back later this summer or early fall just to be sure.
One of our favorite events that is not very well known on the Wonder is the Disney Friends Tea Party. This is only currently offered on the Wonder, and it's a complimentary event! What a treat! Do be sure to stop by Guest Services as soon as you board to sign up, as space is limited. My daughter and I participate each time we sail on the Wonder and love it every time. Guests get to enjoy tea (really it's apple juice) and cookies as two of the Disney princesses (usually we've seen Tiana and Ariel) teach us how to properly take tea. If you have little girls, you won't want to miss this. Also, don't miss the Princess Gathering, which will happen twice on your sailing. Four or five Disney Princesses gather in the Atrium to greet little ones, pose for pictures and sign autographs. Be sure to arrive very early. My daughter and I get there about 45 minutes to an hour before it starts and we are in the first part of the line. Then we sit down and write postcards to pass the time. Before we know it, the princesses are arriving and we're some of the first to greet them. We much prefer that to waiting in line and having to inch our way along for an hour! Other character greetings will be short lines, but this one is very popular since you'll get to meet so many at once!
Stop back with other questions, Amber!
