The world of The Princess and the Frog has an even larger footprint onboard the Disney Wonder following the ship’s 2019 dry dock. The Disney Wonder welcomed the first guests aboard today in Vancouver to see the enhancements.
Thanks Krissie Patterson and Mike Haven for sharing photos of the all new lounge as they embarked today for the repositioning cruise to San Diego.
The New Orleans-themed family themed lounge which replaces the Promendade Lounge, the Connect@Sea desk, and the toddler play are on deck 3 between Tritons and Tiana’s place will transport guests deeper into the heart of the city’s iconic French Quarter.
At the French Quarter Lounge, guests will get a touch of bayou hospitality as they enjoy live music on the gazebo stage and sip specialty drinks at an updated whimsical bar. This natural precursor to dinner at Tiana’s Place Restaurant is the perfect destination for entertainment and libations before or after dinner, while the space will come alive throughout the day with New Orleans-themed family activities, trivia and character encounters.
The jazzy atmosphere of the French Quarter Lounge, also inspired by the Disney animated feature The Princess and the Frog, will evoke an airy outdoor space in New Orleans, surrounded by touches of iconic architecture such as wrought-iron balconies, classic brick walls and shutter-framed windows. Decorative details including a life-size trolley car and nods to the film in the form of signs and facades on the walls add to the ambiance of the space.
Finally, here is a look at the all new French Quarter Lounge spirits and libations menu.
The La Bouff Favorite is a coffee, with 2 beignets, a macaron and something. The something else has varied from those that have reported back. Possibly still being worked out or testing options to determine a guest favorite.
Disney’s first look at the Disney Wonder enhancements on October 4, 2019 included a look at the renovated Cove Cafe along with some more images of the French Quarter Lounge.
We will continue to share updates as we receive them from the recently enhanced Disney Wonder.
