And I am glad to see you DH will be with you after all.
Not sure if DH will be traveling with me yet. Thought I should add him, just in case. I'll be able to give plenty of notice, whether he is or isn't traveling with us.

We chose this itinerary as it has very little travel for us since we live on Vancouver Island which is a two hour ferry ride to Vancouver. Travelling in two adjoining rooms will be my dh, ds (18), ds’s friend (18), dd (4), and I. Hopefully there will be enough activities and things to do for the 18 year olds, I’m confident my soon to be four year old will be over the moon with all there is to do for her. Anyone ever taken 18 year olds on a Disney Cruise? How did it go and did they find other older teens to hang out with?

We are looking into going to the zoo in San Francisco, it doesn’t seem to be a popular choice but we do not have a zoo here so it will be thrilling for us. What is everyone else doing on our stop?

I look forward to hearing from others and want to know all the tips and tricks of the Wonder.
Trisha - we took our 14 yo on the Wonder from LA to VAN. she thought she wouldn't meet anyone.. we never saw the girl!!! she was so busy and now they have all sorts of chatting going on .. tons of activities and fun for them!

Wow my posts and replies are making zero sense here..
For those that are wondering about the Pirate night - I was just on the Wonder LA to Van repo. At the last minute (like a week before the cruise), DCL changed from Pirate to Pixar night. You may want to double check with them before packing and planning on a pirate night.

For those who have kids going to the club for the first time - go straight to the kids area and get your kids bands before the ship leaves, it will save you time the next morning! Also, don't be surprised if your kids dont' want to leave the kids club - I couldnt' get my 6 yo to leave because she was having so much fun!! It was nice to have time without her, but it was a bit different!
Also, for those with teenagers - there are so many activities, you may not see your teen! My 14 yo had so much fun and they had dances, competitions and games!!! She was often out till 2 AM with the activities!!!

For the FE - if you participate, remember what you take up to the cruise to give away, will be MULTIPLIED to bring back. I didn't budget that in my packing space and it was crazy trying to get all our FE gifts home. Sadly I had to give some to friends in Seattle, but they enjoyed the fun toys and bubbles!!!

If anyone wants to go a group brunch at Palo, I will work on booking one when it gets closer to the sail date. We did this on the last cruise and it was so fun! Most of us didn't know each other and it was so cool getting to know other people over food and then seeing each other later!!

If you want to do wine tastings or learn about mixology, head straight to GS when you get on the boat and sign up. The classes are about $20/pp and about 2 hrs long (head was foggy after 4 drinks...) but well worth it and very informative!!!

If no one has set up a MNG before sailing, let's set one up in the Promenade lounge, really fun to put real faces with names etc and then see each other around the boat later!!

Yes, I just got off the cruise a few weeks ago and am so excited to go again with a friend and show her how fun this stuff is!

Nothing special about that verandah that I know of. Room should be the same as all the others in that section.

6652, has a larger verandah but the room only sleeps 3.

We docked in San Pedro last year. I believe it's the same this year.

I originally booked 6652 for the northbound repo, but when I moved my rez to the southbound repo, I switched to 6152. It does have a larger, white-walled verandah. Didn't realize it only sleeps 3 though. Not sure if I even need the verandah now, with this being a shorter cruise, and the reports from the northbound repo saying it was too cold most of the time to use the verandah.
