From Cinderella to Frozen, you've probably spent countless hours (from childhood until now) getting lost in the magic of Disney movies. You can soon relive some of your favorite nostalgic moments on this immersive Disney Cruise line ship departing from Louisiana. Watch out Disney World, this wonderous experience is taking over(seas).
Beginning later this month, Disney Wonder (a Disney cruise line ship), will set sail from an all-new port in NOLA. Although there is no set date, a statement by the brand reports that departures will begin during Mardi Gras season.
Down by the bayou, you can hop aboard a magical wonderland on the water to travel through the Caribbean.
Given that most cruise lines in the U.S. depart from Miami or Fort Lauderdale, Tennessee travelers can look forward to a shorter trip to depart on an international adventure at sea.
About an eight hour drive from Nashville, the New Orleans spot will be the newest home for Disney ships.
Disney Wonder is one of four massive ships offered through the cruise line with a sleek, modern look and feel towering at 11 decks high.
As you explore the premises, you'll discover Disney-themed everything including musicals, 3D movies and live characters that roam around looking for photo ops.
You can explore themed boutiques, salons, spas, the Marvel Superhero academy, lots of pubs and bars, three massive themed pools with a waterslide and more.
As you drink your way through the ship and get a taste of all the amenities, you might find yourself pondering whether or not you actually want to leave the ship for on-land excursions.
The journey will transport you to tropical destinations including the Bahamas, Key West, Panama Canal and (drum roll, please) Castaway Cay - Disney's private island with an adults-only beach, snorkeling and plenty of waterslides.
If a cruise has been on your radar, take the trek to coastal LA to climb aboard a whimsical, magical journey that lets you express your true childlike wonder.
