Beginning in Fall 2022 and continuing through Spring 2023, the Disney Wonder will offer Disney Cruise Line guests 3-, 4-, 5- and 7-day cruises to Baja, Mexico and the Mexican Riviera from San Diego, California. In fact, it will be Disney Cruise Line’s longest season yet from this popular southern California homeport!
Home to 11 decks overflowing with restaurants, pools, recreation, imaginative kid’s clubs, adult-exclusive hotspots, special encounters with Disney characters, a spa and Broadway-caliber shows, the Disney Wonder is filled with adventure and plenty of Disney magic. And that’s not all! Your family can dine with Princess Tiana herself at Tiana’s Place, a restaurant inspired by “The Princess and the Frog.” While you might enjoy the live jazz music, this restaurant is always a guest favorite because of the southern cuisine. We highly recommend the beignets for dessert!
In case that wasn’t enough, your family can also choose itineraries that include limited-time Halloween and holiday activities. Imagine experiencing the magic of the seasons at sea, including Halloween on the High Seas voyages and – for the first time from San Diego – Very Merrytime holiday cruises! Or, if you’re looking to escape winter back home to soak up magical fun, sun and relaxation while taking in the natural splendor of sun-kissed seaside towns, you can opt for one of the early 2023 sailings.
San Diego, Disney Wonder’s homeport for this extended season, is a picture-perfect urban gem worthy of a stay before or after your cruise. Balboa Park and Old Town speak to the city’s Spanish colonial heritage, while the world-famous San Diego Zoo is home to more than 12,000 animals of more than 650 species.
From San Diego, the Disney Wonder will set sail to popular destinations, alive with color and culture. Ports include:
Mazatlan, the renowned “Pearl of the Pacific” and the perfect beachside escape with breathtaking natural wonders, thriving culture and colorful history.
Cabo San Lucas, a favored destination with dramatic rock formations and white-sand beaches.
Puerto Vallarta, a beautiful seaside resort wrapped around romantic Banderas Bay and bordered by the stunning Sierra Madre Mountains, where outdoor adventures abound.
Ensenada, known for its turquoise blue water and rugged mountainous terrain.
Catalina Island. Fabled in song and legend, Catalina abounds in wildlife, outdoor adventures and seaside charm. No visit is complete without stopping at the vast Wrigley Memorial Botanical Gardens or the gilded splendor of the Catalina Island Casino, a showplace that was beautifully restored to its 1930s Art Deco magnificence as a reminder of the island’s glorious past.
Unforgettable awaits! Cruises from California aboard the Disney Wonder will open for booking on Tuesday, February 22, 2022.
The Disneyland Resort will once again transform into a merry and magical place as guests return to enjoy their holiday season beginning Nov. 12, 2021. You’ll have three more days to celebrate the Holidays, too, because the celebration will be extended through Jan. 9, 2022.
As you visit to make new memories this year, many beloved traditions are back that will provide you with cheerful entertainment, yuletide treats, specialty merchandise, sparkling décor and seasonal transformations of select attractions!
At Disneyland park, nostalgic holiday magic shines brightly with the glistening Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle and a 60-foot Christmas tree on Main Street, U.S.A. Both make wonderful photo locations for that cherished memory of your Holiday visit.
Entertainment making a comeback this year at the park includes “A Christmas Fantasy” parade where beloved Disney characters join Santa Claus for a merry musical celebration down Main Street, U.S.A. You may also see Santa making other stops within the parks throughout your visit. For the perfect kiss goodnight, you will be treated to “Believe … in Holiday Magic” fireworks spectacular and magical snowfall over portions of Main Street, U.S.A. Additionally, seasonal transformations will happen once again at “it’s a small world” Holiday and the 20th installation of Haunted Mansion Holiday.
Disney California Adventure Park
At Disney California Adventure park, create new memories during Festival of Holidays and discover the sights, sounds and tastes of a diverse season of celebrations during this festive time of year, including Christmas/Navidad, Diwali, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Three Kings Day.
Friends and families are invited to celebrate with “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” as Disney characters host a fun street party featuring Mexican folklórico dancers and Mariachis, Brazilian samba dancers and percussionists, giant mojiganga puppets and Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in their fiesta best! At Paradise Gardens, you’ll enjoy festively themed food and beverages, live music and dance, and later in the holiday season, Mirabel from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ upcoming film “Encanto” will make her park debut.
Over in Cars Land, the four-wheeled residents will be pulling out all the stops with their holiday décor. From the snow-covered billboard at the entrance all the way to the hubcap-studded tree at the courthouse, you will see automotive ornamentation at its finest along Route 66. And for a little more festive magic two popular attractions will transform into Luigi’s Joy to the Whirl and Mater’s Jingle Jamboree.
Also around the resort, traditional holiday décor and carolers bring the holiday spirit to Downtown Disney District and the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort. Over at the lobby inside Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, you’ll want to discover all the fun, new details on the giant gingerbread house this year.
With so much to do at the Disneyland Resort, where will your merry making begin? For more details, continue to check back on the Disney Parks Blog where additional information about Holidays at the Disneyland Resort will be shared.

While the sun is often shining upon the Disneyland Resort, there is a rainy day now and then. If you think damp weather puts a damper on a day at Disneyland, think again! Here are five tips for enjoying a rainy day at Disneyland Resort.
Pack that Poncho… …or grab one when you get here! Many Disneyland Resort merchandise locations offer ponchos and umbrellas. If you don’t see them on the shelves, just ask a cast member.
One More Time! Rainy days can mean more opportunities to ride your favorite attractions!
Unique Photo Opportunities Rainy days are the perfect time to catch a unique photo of icons like Sleeping Beauty Castle, framed by dramatic clouds or even reflected in a puddle. For inspiration, check out these rainy day reflection photos from former Disneyland Resort Chief Photographer Paul Hiffmeyer.
You’ve booked your family’s Disney World, Disneyland, or Disney Cruise Line vacation! Now what? How will you pass the coming weeks and months before your magical adventure? There are so many fun ways to countdown to Disney vacations! You can get the whole family involved to build excitement for your visit.
A countdown chain can be both a fun visual for the kids as you count down the days until your vacation and a great activity to keep them busy! Depending on how early you begin your countdown to Disney, you can count down the number of weeks to go or the number of days to go. Or, make a combination of both! We have a PDF version of the countdown chain that you can print at the bottom.
Have a Disney Movie Marathon
There are so many attractions and shows inspired by Disney movies. Make some time to catch up on any you may have missed. Disney+ has a great selection or you can always order some relatively inexpensively from Amazon.
We recommend the animated classics for Magic Kingdom, Frozen for Epcot, Toy Story and the Star Wars trilogies for Hollywood Studios, and Avatar for Animal Kingdom, just to name a few.
If you have little ones, you can pick up Disney coloring books from your local dollar store. They can color pictures of their favorite characters that they hope to meet during your vacation. We also love Crayola Color Wonder Mess Free Coloring for little ones, even to occupy them on the airplane.
You can even sign up for a FREE Disney World coloring book to get started ASAP here.
Read a Disney Themed Book Series
From TheKingdomKeepers.com, “In this fantastical thriller, five young teens tapped as models for theme park “guides” find themselves pitted against Disney villains and witches that threaten both the future of Walt Disney World and the stability of the world outside its walls. Using a cutting-edge technology called DHI–which stands for both Disney Host Interactive and Daylight Hologram Imaging–Finn Whitman, an Orlando teen, and four other kids are transformed into hologram projections that guide guests through the park. The new technology turns out, however, to have unexpected effects that are both thrilling and scary. Soon Finn finds himself transported in his DHI form into the Magic Kingdom at night. Is it real? Is he dreaming? Finn’s confusion only increases when he encounters Wayne, an elderly Imagineer who tells him that the park is in grave danger. Led by the scheming witch, Maleficent, a mysterious group of characters called the Overtakers is plotting to destroy Disney’s beloved realm, and maybe more. This gripping high-tech tale will thrill every kid who has ever dreamed of sneaking into Walt Disney World after hours and wondered what happens at night, when the park is closed.”
You can start with the Kingdom Keepers Boxed Set which includes the first three books of the series. This is perfect for older kids to read on their own or mom and dad to read together with younger ones.
A Twisted Tale
For adult readers, you could try the “A Twisted Tale” series. This series will “reintroduce fans to their favorite worlds and stories – with game-changing twists that have readers feverishly turning pages to follow their heroes and heroines into all-new adventures.”
One of my favorite things about spending a day at a theme park is the food! There are so many delicious snacks and treats! When we can’t visit the theme parks in person to get our fix, we can make these theme park recipes at home.

One of the most iconic snacks from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or even all of Universal Orlando Resort is butterbeer. Butterbeer is served chilled, frozen, or warm (seasonally) inside of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. You can find this sweet butterscotch flavored treat in the Three Broomsticks, Leaky Cauldron, Hog’s Head, and carts throughout the Wizarding World.
1 cup light or dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons water
6 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
3/4 cup heavy cream divided
1/2 teaspoon rum extract
4 bottles (12 oz. bottles) cream soda
In a small saucepan over medium, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240 F on a candy thermometer.
Stir in the butter, salt, vinegar and 1/4 heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.
In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened, but not completely whipped, about 2 to 3 minutes.
To serve, divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass). Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass, then stir to combine. Fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.
To make your butterbeer most like the original version served at Universal Orlando Resort, you will want to freeze this recipe since it served hot.
We even have a Harry Potter recipe card that you can print out to save your butterbeer recipe to make again and again!
Fried PB&J with Bananas Sandwich Recipe from Halloween Horror Nights
Although Universal Orlando Resort was unable to offer Halloween Horror Nights in 2020, you can still enjoy a delicious treat from the nation’s premier Halloween event as you dream about the fun for 2021!
The first step to enjoying these fried pb&j with bananas sandwich is to make the secret ingredient that makes this sandwich unbelievable… FUNNEL CAKE BATTER!
Funnel Cake Batter Recipe
1 ½ cups of whole milk
2 large eggs
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
In a large bowl, mix the milk and eggs together.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Next, stir the bowl of dry ingredients into the large bowl of wet ingredients and mix until smooth.
Set aside for later.
Fried PB&J with Bananas Sandwich Recipe
2 slices of thick cut, white bread
1 ½ tablespoons of creamy peanut butter
1 ½ tablespoons of grape jelly
½ banana sliced
1 teaspoon chocolate syrup
½ cup funnel cake batter
1 tablespoon of powdered sugar
Canola oil (I would get at least 48 oz.)
Preheat a large, heavy bottomed pot or large fry pan with canola oil until it reaches 350 degrees (use a candy thermometer to check temp).
You can also use a dutch oven or stock pot to fry as well. Whatever floats your boat… or in this case, sandwich.
For the canola oil, you’ll want around 2 inches or so. You want to be able to fully submerge the sandwich in the oil.
If you don’t have a candy thermometer (which I did not), you can tell the oil is ready when it’s shimmering with a whiff of smoke.
Spread creamy peanut butter evenly on one slice of bread.
Spread grape jelly evenly on another slice of bread.
Pause to lick any peanut butter or jelly you may have gotten on your fingers.
Slice the banana and place onto the piece of bread with the peanut butter.
Close sandwich and submerge into the bowl of funnel cake batter until completely covered.
Place the sandwich into the preheated oil but be careful! I recommend using tongs or a large slotted spoon.
Fry until golden brown on both sides.
Remove from oil and place onto paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
Drizzle as much chocolate syrup as you’d like and garnish with powdered sugar. I love A LOT of chocolate as you can probably tell in the picture!
First, let’s get fancy and get a bunch of little bowls and divide all the ingredients up into them. Then, let’s get mixing!
Put the jalapeños in a large bowl (if you don’t like spiciness, skip this step.)
Carefully cut the avocado in half and discard the pit by inserting the blade into the seed using a quick and gentle cutting movement, then twist and remove. Gently scoop the avocado with a spoon and place in a bowl.
Add the red onion, tomatoes, cilantro, salt, and olives to the bowl.
Add a drizzle of olive oil.
Mash and mix all the ingredients together using the back of a large spoon or fork, then mix in the lime juice.
Shape it into a perfect little guac mountain and garnish with extra cilantro or tomatoes.
Get your favorite chips and get your guac on!
Blast the mariachi music, throw those chips in a bowl, and get that salt shaker ready. It’s time to fiesta!
Big Apple Grilled Cheese Recipe from TODAY Cafe
You can bring a taste of Universal’s comfort food to your home with the Big Apple Grilled Cheese recipe from TODAY Cafe. This fun twist on grilled cheese combines the savory flavors of melted cheesiness and tomatoes with the crisp sweetness of apples all in one sandwich. It’s a great lunch option for your kids or for the big kid that’s in all of us.
2 slices of white bread
2 slices of cheddar cheese
2 slices of Swiss cheese
1 slice of pepper jack cheese
1 tablespoon roasted plum tomato
2 teaspoons unsalted butter
4 thin slices of Red Delicious apple
Butter two slices of white bread with softened butter
Remove the core of the apple and cut into 4 wedges
Thinly slice one wedge of apple and set aside for later
Place bread butter side down into non-stick fry pan on medium heat
Begin to build the sandwich by laying the pepper jack and Swiss cheese on one slice
Allow the cheese to begin to melt from the heat below
Once the cheese begins to soften, place apples and tomatoes on top of the slice with cheddar
Using a spatula, flip the side with the pepper jack onto the other side and press for one minute
Ensure that both sides are golden brown, remove from pan and place onto cutting board
Cut in half and enjoy the cheesiness!
Serve with your favorite side of fruit, potato salad, or whatever your heart desires
Bonus: it’s an easy recipe to tackle for those of us who aren’t necessarily cooking savvy.
Mini Pumpkin Donuts with Green Icing Recipe
This is the perfect pumpkin donut recipe to bring a little Halloween Horror Nights to your home. Not only are they deliciously pumpkin flavored, they’re also mini and very cute!
Makes 24 Mini Pumpkin Donuts
1 cup sugar
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
¼ cup of pumpkin pie spice
1⁄4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup milk
4 cups flour (plus a little more if dough is sticky)
Vegetable oil (for frying)

In a large bowl mix the sugar, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and nutmeg together.
Add eggs, milk, and melted butter. Beat well.
Add 3 cups of the flour, beating until blended. Add one more cup of flour and beat well. The dough should be soft and sticky but firm enough to handle. If you feel it’s necessary, add up to 1/2 cup more flour.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill for (at least) one hour.
Early 2022 Disney Cruise Line itineraries will return to Hawaii and other favorite tropical destinations to delight families with one-of-a-kind vacations at sea. Adventure awaits during 10-night Hawaiian Islands cruises and a variety of sailings to the Bahamas, Caribbean and Mexico, departing from coast-to-coast homeports including New Orleans, Galveston, Texas, San Diego, Miami and Port Canaveral, Florida.
Hawaiian Islands Cruises from Honolulu and Vancouver
The Disney Wonder will return to the Hawaiian Islands in early 2022 for two special 10-night cruises: a voyage to Honolulu from Vancouver, Canada, on April 26, 2022 and a return sailing to Vancouver on May 6, 2022.
Guests will discover the breathtaking beauty of the Hawaiian Islands, including the famous beaches of Waikiki on Oahu; unforgettable views from high atop the summit of Haleakala Crater on Maui; the lush tropical gardens and waterfalls of Kauai; and the diverse natural wonders of Hawaii Island.
Even More Family Vacations from Florida
Vacationers can combine a Disney cruise getaway with a stay at Walt Disney World Resort in early 2022 with two ships sailing from Port Canaveral, Florida, and a third ship departing from Miami. Every cruise from Florida in early 2022 includes a visit to Disney’s private island paradise, Castaway Cay.
From Port Canaveral, the Disney Fantasy begins 2022 with a six-night Western Caribbean cruise, followed by seven-night voyages to a variety of favorite destinations in the Eastern and Western Caribbean.
The Disney Dream, also sailing from Port Canaveral, embarks on three- and four-night Bahamian cruises to Nassau and Castaway Cay. Offering even more fun in the sun, one special four-night cruise includes two stops at Castaway Cay.
From Miami, the Disney Magic sails four- and five-night Bahamian cruises and five-night Western Caribbean cruises. One special three-night sailing to Castaway Cay and Key West, Florida, makes the perfect long weekend escape.
With a variety of options from Florida to choose from, guests can look forward to embarking on a vacation that provides something for everyone in the family, combining the adventure and relaxation of tropical destinations, the ease and indulgence of an ocean cruise, and the world-class entertainment and service of a Disney vacation.
Popular Tropical Destinations from Galveston and New Orleans
The Disney Wonder will offer Western Caribbean getaways early in 2022. Initially from Galveston, Texas, with four-night itineraries, followed by four- and six-night voyages from New Orleans.
A special six-night Bahamian voyage offered from both Galveston and New Orleans will give guests the opportunity to visit Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island paradise in the Bahamas, in addition to the lively beach town of Key West.
Baja Getaways from San Diego
The Disney Wonder will return to San Diego, California in March and April 2022 with cruises to Baja, Mexico, where you can enjoy vibrant culture, stunning beaches and exciting water activities.
Most sailings to the Baja peninsula call on the charming coastal city of Ensenada, known for its turquoise blue water and rugged mountainous terrain. A two-night cruise to Ensenada has a Friday departure from San Diego, giving you an amazing weekend getaway to experience world-class entertainment aboard the Disney Wonder.
Four- and five-night Baja cruises include a visit to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, a popular destination with dramatic rock formations and white-sand beaches, or to Catalina Island, a tropical gem off the California coast with plenty of outdoor adventures and seaside charm.
Early 2022 Disney Cruise Line bookings will open to the public beginning October 22, 2020. Castaway Club members are eligible for early access.
Disney Wish Update
Although the Disney Wish was originally scheduled to sail in early 2022, its maiden voyage has been postponed to summer 2022 as a result of pandemic-related delays at the Meyer-Werft shipyard in Germany. The ship will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy at approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms.
