If you're planning a trip to Disneyland California and you want to extend your LA Disney experience beyond the Disneyland Resort boundaries, or if you've already done the theme parks and you're looking for a new Disney experience, you can schedule in a Disney Cruise departing from the World Cruise Center at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro, CA. If you're a fan of Disney's theme parks, you'll appreciate the attention to detail Disney gives to the family cruise experience.

Which Disney Ships Depart from Los Angeles?

With rare exceptions, all Disney cruises from Los Angeles are aboard the Disney Wonder. Like its sister ship, the Disney Magic, based in Florida, the Disney Wonder was designed with families in mind. Special amenities include family staterooms, youth clubs and children's activity centers, as well as designated family pools and dining rooms and family-friendly entertainment. For those traveling without kids, there are also adults-only pools and dining options.

The art nouveau décor of the Disney Wonder incorporates iconic Disney characters along with nautical wave themes. A bronze statue of Ariel, from The Little Mermaid greets guests in the lobby of the ship.
