Every cruise on the Disney Cruise Line is special, but day four of the MiceChat cruise on the Disney Wonder stands out because of the activities that were planned by MiceChat and Fairy Godmother Travel. Join our cruisers as they visit Pixar Studios, Silverado Winery, the Frank Family Winery and the Charles M. Schulz Museum. ~~Rick
