We trust Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Princess Tiana, Pluto and Goofy are good sailors.

They will need to be as they sail from California to Australia and New Zealand onboard Disney Wonder, marking the debut of Disney ships Down Under.

Disney Wonder will sail limited time short cruises from four ports - Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland between October 2023 to February 2024.

Guests young and old will be treated to their favourite stories from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars on the two-to-six night cruises, launching 28 October 2023 from Sydney.

“On these limited-time sailings, the ship is the destination,” said Josh D’Amaro, chairman for Disney Parks, Experiences and Products.

Entertainment will include original Broadway-quality shows, while dining experiences with showcase New Orleans-themed Tiana’s Place, where kids can meet Princess Tiana; and Animater’s Palate, an interactive dining experience that celebrates Disney animation.

There will be fun with Frozen adventures in Disney’s Oceaneer Club, along with a multi-level replica of Andy’s Room from Toy Story and a place to summon their inner superhero at the Marvel Superhero Academy.

Thankfully, adults will find some respite from Disney-mania at the adults-only Quiet Cove pool, dining at Palo and the Senses Spa & Salon.
