To date, Disney has four magical cruise ships: Magic, Wonder, Fantasy and Dream. After sailing aboard the Magic during the summer of 2016 we’ve made it our new goal to sail on every single ship that Disney has in their fleet. Yes, it was that wonderful! Just thinking about taking a Disney cruise is exciting, and I’m not the only one who thinks that. A friend I work with has taken 20 cruises in the past seven years, all exclusively on Disney ships!
In 2017 we boarded the Disney Wonder!

The Magic and the Wonder are sister ships, and in many aspects the ships are identical. There really isn’t much of a difference in the experience aside from the castmembers, which we found to be much more personal and magical on the Wonder. The size and layout of the ship is almost indistinguishable, with the exception of one notable restaurant and the disappointing lack of an AquaDunk slide on the top deck. There are also varying shows, and the ports change regardless of the ship you are on.

We’ve also sailed on the Disney Magic and prepared a full Destination Guide for this ship as well!
