The interior of the Disney Wonder is art nouveau, characterized by an "art from nature" feel, with whimsical, swirling wave designs.

Each of the three dining rooms on Disney Wonder are themed—Triton’s is named after the King in Disney's animated classic, The Little Mermaid; Parrot Cay is Caribbean style; and Animator’s Palate features artistic décor that changes from black-and-white to full-color during the meal.   

Passengers on Disney Wonder dine in all three main restaurants by “rotation”—moving nightly from one to the next together with their assigned waiters. 

Featuring Italian cuisine, Palo is the Disney Wonder’s adults-only alternative restaurant.

Evening dress on Disney Wonder is resort casual for dinner in Animator’s Palate and Parrot Cay; however, a jacket for men and dresses or pantsuits for ladies are suggested when dining in Triton’s and Palo. 

Disney Wonder is the first cruise ship built with two funnels since the 1950’s. 

Classic Disney movies and first-run films are shown in the Disney Wonder’s cinema.

The Disney Wonder’s sports deck features a paddle tennis court, table tennis, basketball court, shuffleboard, and a golf driving range.

Aboard Disney ships, 73% of the staterooms have outside ocean views and 60% of those have private verandahs.

Passengers can serve themselves complimentary soft drinks from a beverage station near the lido buffet restaurant.

Mickey Mouse, as "Steamboat Willie" stands at the bow of the Disney Wonder while the ship has Donald Duck and his nephew Huey  painting the stern. 

Disney Wonder docks alongside its own pier on Castaway Cay, allowing passengers to alight on their own private island. 

For grown-ups, Disney Wonder has the adults-only Quiet Cove swimming pool on deck and a relaxing Tropical Rain Shower in the Vista Spa. 

Open-air massage treatments can be arranged at the all-adult Serenity Bay beach on Disney Wonder’s private island, Castaway Cay. 

Most cabins on Disney Wonder feature faux steamer trunks for clothing storage, a hairdryer, efficient split-use bathrooms (so that more than one family member can use them at once), and bathrobes are provided for all guests. 

Wheelchair-bound passengers can choose accommodations on Disney Wonder in a variety of categories, including suites with balconies and extra large bathrooms with roll-in showers. 

When children are dropped off at Disney Wonder’s Oceaneer Club or Oceaneer Lab, parents receive pagers so families are always in touch. 

In Disney Wonder’s Oceaneer Club, children from age three to eight find a place just for them with playgrounds, computer stations, costume dress up areas, Disney characters, and special programs like dancing and storytelling. 

Disney Wonder’s Oceaneer Lab is designed for children from age nine to twelve with hands-on, interactive lab stations, computer stations, and scientific gadgets. Special programs teach the secrets of animation. 

With a long yellow water slide, Mickey’s Pool is the swimming pool just for children on  Disney Wonder and Goofy’s Pool, with its adjacent whirlpools, is for families. 

A New York-style coffee house with large-screen television, a lounge area, and coffee bar is Disney Wonder’s “Aloft” and it’s just for teens, ages 13 to 17. 

Adults can club hop along Route 66 on Disney Wonder and enjoy top 40’s music, dancing, and cabaret in Wave Bands or relaxing piano music in the Cadillac Lounge and keep track of sports scores on big-screen TVs in Diversions

There is no casino aboard Disney Wonder and smoking areas are strictly limited.
