Ask a Disney Question: Toy Story The Musical on the Disney Wonder.

This email comes from Kris, who writes:  "We are cruising on the Wonder in Jan. I am very excited and have two cruises booked for 2011. Advertised on the ship is the Toy Story show.

I think this is good solid … [Read more...]

Ask A Disney Question: How Often Does DCL Change Their Menus?

This question comes from Natalie, who asks:  "Does the Disney Wonder food menus change often? If so, how often and do you know how I can find out what has changed before I go?The frequency that Disney Cruise Lines (DCL) changes menus is a thorny issue for frequent cruisers, who complain that the menu doesn't change often enough.  There's no set time that restaurants change their menus, but figure every two to three years.  For example, the most recent signature restaurant to change, Palo, … [Read more...]
