The first thing that you will see when you board the ship is the Disney Wonder Atrium.
When you enter on Deck 3 of the Disney Wonder you will step into the beautiful lobby.
The photo below is taken from Deck 4.
To the right, you see the ornate midship elevators – the middle 2 are glass elevators.
All of the Disney ships have a statue in the lobby. For the Disney Wonder this is Ariel The Little Mermaid.
If you haven’t sailed on the Disney Wonder for some time you may notice some radical changes that were made to the atrium lobby during the dry dock in 2016.
The most significant change was that one of the staircases was removed. There used to be stairs on each side, but now, there is just one.
This created quite a bit more space in the atrium.
After the Dream and Fantasy were launched the staircases on the Classic ships always just looked not quite right. The beautiful and grand space on the Dream Class ships rather overshadowed the older ships.
It was therefore a sensible choice to remove the port side staircase in both Disney Wonder and Magic.
The other change was the Disney Wonder Chandelier which was completely replaced.
Both the old and the new atrium chandelier were designed by Dale Chihuly.
The Disney Wonder Atrium is often used for Character Greetings.
Look in your Navigator App for times when the Disney characters are available for a meet and greet in the Disney Wonder atrium.
You will see that the front entrance to Triton’s Restaurant is located in the Disney Wonder atrium.
There is an alternative accessible entrance at the side of the restaurant which you can find by walking towards the French Quarter Bar.
Whilst the Disney Wonder atrium isn’t as grand as most of the others in the fleet, it is very beautiful and functional at the same time.
