On Friday Costa Rica greeted Mickey and Minnie Mouse aboard the Disney cruise ship the Disney Wonder. This was the first time a Disney cruise ship docked in Costa Rica.
The Costa Rican Tourism Bureau hopes this is the first of many stops for all the Disney cruise boats, there are two. The Disney Wonder carried 1,800 passengers that embarked in Florida and made several stops before coming to visit Costa Rica’s nature parks and reserves.
It is unknown if the Disney company will make the Costa Rican stop a permanent part of its cruise line itinerary. Tourism is one of the largest sources of revenue for this Central American country and is currently the most visited country in the region.
