Family surprises son with Alaska Disney Cruise for 13th birthday


Denise Milano Sprung sent this video of a special moment for her family. Their son Zach wanted a Disney Cruise to Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder for his bar Mitzvah and 13th birthday. The family planned ahead and were on the phone to get the cruise they wanted at exactly when it went on sale. But that wasn’t the only surprise.

They also sprung for the 1 bedroom stateroom #8534. It’s one of four midship suites that has the sideways layout with an extended balcony to connected staterooms. It’s also on the concierge level to that extra level of guest service.

According to Sprung, “We are big Disney fans. Zach was on the Disney Fantasy two summers ago and asked for Disney Alaska instead of a party.”

Here’s the special moment with Denise’s son Zach enters the suite for the frist time:

“We were so touched by his reaction,” said Sprung. “He wanted to salmon fish in Juneau and he picked each excursion.”

“We are huge fans of Disney service and think the food is top notch. It’s our fourth Disney cruise and we think this was the best crew we have had yet,” said Sprung.

The Disney Wonder is the Disney Cruise Line’s second ship of the fleet (which we recently learned is growing to six ships). Like all Disney ships it features the same high level guest service and elegance that Disney Cruise Line is famous for. It includes a variety of itineraries including: the Bahamas, Caribbean, Europe, Alaska and the Pacific Coast, and even the Panama Canal!
