Was in line at Target buying a cute top with anchors all over it for the sail away party. As luck would have it, a person ahead of me is wearing a jacket with "WONDER" on the back of it in Walt font and it has Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, etc on it. So I ask him "How many times have you sailed on the Wonder?" He laughs. "I'm a stage manager for the shows, so a lot." He's on break now, but will be the SM on my cruise in April I asked him if Disney planned to do Mexico or any other itineraries on the West Coast and he said "We may do a few before heading to Alaska, but Mexico is a definite no, probably for several years." I asked him if safety was the issue and he said "100% yes. We had to practically BEG people to board the ship to go there." A bummer for me since I live in CA. Thought others may want to know. Oh-and I asked him if I should bring candy for the people who will do the character signatures and he said "They get SO much candy and stuff-they'd probably prefer you leave it at home." I was a bit surprised after what i'd read here, but... Maybe I'll give granola bars or something instead!
