Fun Facts

  • The Disney ships are painted in Mickey Mouse-inspired colors – black hull, white superstructure, yellow trim and two giant red funnels, each with the Disney Cruise Line Mickey Mouse logo.
  • Disney Cruise Line was the first cruise line to have yellow lifeboats, instead of the traditional regulation orange. Disney was granted special permission from the U.S. Coast Guard to paint the lifeboats yellow, to keep with the special color theming of the ship.
  • Disney ships are the only cruise ships to have four captains – the ship’s captain, Captain Mickey, Captain Hook and Captain Jack Sparrow.
  • Offer free soft drinks any time of day or night, with a free 24/7 beverage station offering sodas, coffee, tea and water.
  • In a cruise industry first, most staterooms on Disney ships feature a split “bath-and-a-half” design, providing families the added convenience of a sink and tub/shower in one room and a sink and toilet in a separate room.
  • Don’t worry about getting a chill! The swimming pools on Disney ships are heated when the water temperature drops below 75 degrees.
  • Measuring 964 feet in length, the Disney Wonder is longer than Main Street U.S.A at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.
  • The interior on the Disney Wonder is in the art nouveau style, which features organic influences and curved patterns.
  • Every Disney Cruise Line ship has an atrium lobby statue celebrating a classic Disney character. Ariel sits pretty as the feature in the lobby of the Disney Wonder.
  • Disney Cruise Line was the first cruise line to have an animated character as the Godmother of a ship. Tinkerbell is the Godmother of the Disney Wonder.
