We were able to slow-roll it the morning of embarkation. We didn't have to be there until noon. Which was nice given the day before's zero-dark-thirty wake up. We headed over to the terminal about 11:15 and the minute we got out of the car Disney's incredible service took over. A porter met us at the car with a cart for our bags, then offered to find us a valet for the Tahoe. Other porters wearing Mickey hands directed us from place to place in the terminal. Check in was smooth as silk. Except for the fact that the US government apparently thinks I am man. Although my passport says female, the computer system says male.
Here we are waiting in the check-in line
Once we got on the ship, it was up to the Beach Blanket Buffet on Deck 10 for lunch with a lovely view of the harbor.
And then to the Mickey Pool to await 1:30 when we could get into our stateroom
After the mandatory evacuation it was time for the Adventures Away Party at the Goofy Pool. There are 3 pools on the Disney Wonder. The Mickey Pool, which has multiple levels, so is perfect for all kids, the Goofy Pool, which is more of a traditional swimming pool and has a giant movie screen, and the Quiet Cove Pool, which is adults only and has 2 Jacuzzis and a bar.
The Vincent Thomas Bridge
Off we go!
If you ever want to see commerce at work, take a trip to the Port of Los Angeles - ships, and trucks, and trains all over the place, and CONEX's as far as the eye can see.
After a day of exploring the ship, it was off to dinner at Animator's Palate, which I have no pictures of, because I apparently do no know how to used the no-flash setting on my camera.
