Recently, it was announced that the Disney Wonder would be seeing some updates and this week, those glorious changes were revealed.

The first is the French Quarter Lounge, which brings to life the Princess and the Frog’s New Orleans flare transporting Guests into the heart of the city’s iconic French Quarter. The French Quarter Lounge is the perfect complement to Tiana’s Place Restaurant.

The French Quarter Lounge is designed to look like an outdoor space featuring decorative details like a storefront window with a wrought-iron balcony above. If you’re a fan of the film, you’ll notice that the hats in the display are inspired by hats worn by your favorite characters in the film. Throughout the lounge, Guests will also see full-sized streetcar on the St. Charles line, which is the same trolley that Tiana rides in the film. Authentic wooden bench seating creates a cozy place to sit and listen to music.

Each evening at the French Quarter Lounge, guests can enjoy live music on the lounge’s gazebo stage, sip a New Orleans-themed specialty drink and dance the night away.

The bar is a focal part of the lounge with New Orleans-style wrought-iron adornments and shutters. Guests will be able to enjoy specialty cocktails, nonalcoholic beverages and coffees here. The bar displays elements inspired by Dr. Facilier, as Guests will see a mural on the wall that features the villain’s shadow and his business card. There’s also a door based on the entrance to Dr. Facilier’s shop, with signage and three flickering “candles” overhead.

Throughout the day, Guests will be able to participate in New Orleans-themed family activities, trivia, character meet-and-greets and music.

Other changes on the Disney Wonder a reimagined Cove Café. This coffee shop has been redesigned with warm, comfortable and trendy décor. The Cove Cafe features ample seating and ocean views and is the perfect place to sip a specialty coffee or tea throughout the day, and indulge in wine or a cocktail and light bites during the evening hours. In addition, Signals Bar has also received an update with a similar look.

Vibe, the space for teens ages 14-17, has transformed into a contemporary place to hang out with friends. The club has a timeless feel with an open, bright redesign that includes framed quotes on the walls, a light color palette and metal work. There’s a new coffee bar and updated virtual reality technology now that helps to round out the changes.
