Once Upon A Disney Wish Sets Sail Summer 2022

I was so excited to be invited to Disney Cruise Line's virtual reveal of their newest ship, Disney Wish. Disney Wish is the 5th ship to join the Disney Cruise Line Fleet.  What a grand unveiling it was! I was able to see sneak peeks of the magic that awaits, a look behind the scenes with Walt Disney Imagineers and special character appearances. It will set sail summer 2022.  Sign up here for the latest updates.  Bookings start May 27, 2021!

The stern of the Disney Wish will boast a custom sculpture of the optimistic and adventurous Rapunzel. Suspended by her golden tresses, this artistic Disney Princess will appear to be “decorating” the exterior of the ship with her trusty paintbrush and the help of her chameleon pal, Pascal.

Let's lift the curtain to unveil this elegant ship full of enchantment. Prepare to be amazed with the new worlds and experiences that await all of us, from dining in the Kingdom of Arendelle, to riding through the animated world of Mickey Mouse, and even finding yourself in a Galaxy Far, Far Away.  The Disney Wish will have everything families love about a Disney cruise, in addition to new and incredible experiences and I cannot wait!

The spellbinding Grand Hall, a bright, airy and elegant space that will welcome guests as they first step on board,  it is a fairy tale inspired 3 story atrium and will be Disney Cruise Line's Castle on the Seas!  So many memories will be made here!  The Grand Hall will serve as the gate way to all the magic that awaits you on the Disney Wish!  It will be the heart of the ship and families will gather for theatrical surprises throughout the day.  Cinderella the strong, quintessential Disney princes who made us believe that dreams and wishes can come true, will greet guests entering the Grand Hall.

The beautiful bronze statue of this beloved and kind princess is just one of many tributes to her story in the Grand Hall’s design, others include railings that glisten with elegant stained glass in her signature colors, rich carpeting embellished with icons from the film, and sophisticated nods to her carriage and glass slipper in the delicate metalwork and light fixtures.  The Grand Hall will be the enchanted gateway to everything that awaits on board the Disney Wish: fairytale worlds, heroic challenges, epicurean indulgences, thrilling adventures, galactic encounters, peaceful escapes and so much more.
There will also be Luna where the entertainment will evolve from day to night, and Hero Zone a futuristic arena where imagination will meet active play.

Captain Minnie Mouse will have a prominent place on the Disney Wish.  Her likeness will be on the bow, leading Disney Cruise Line into the future.

The Walt Disney Company has a strong commitment to the environment, the Disney Wish and all the new ships they are building will run on liquefied natural gas, one of the cleanest burning fuels in the marine industry.  It is an important action Disney is taking today for a better tomorrow.

Let's talk about the Upper Deck!

On the upper deck you will have the first ever Disney attraction at sea!  It is called the AquaMouse!  It sounds splashtacular!!  The AquaMouse has a rich storyline, complete with show scenes, lighting, special effects and even a few surprises.  A ride on the AquaMouse will take you into the animated world of the Mickey Mouse shorts with an original story called Scuba Scramble.  Mickey and Minnie have started their very own excursion company and they want YOU to be among their first guests on an exciting adventure to Mermaid Lagoon.  Along the way, you will encounter lots of sea creatures and some familiar Disney characters.  Their excursion company is called Port Misadventures, so what could go wrong?!  The thrill of attraction is just as awesome, you will take off on a wild water ride that spans 760 feet around the upper deck!  Also on the upper deck it is Mickey & Friends themed district designed for families.  It will have casual dining and plenty of space for everyone to relax and hang out together.  

There is also a dedicated space just for adults with an infinity pool.  As well as an all new area for families with little ones themed to Toy Story.  The Toy Story Splash Zone is where little ones can splash, swim, and slide with Woody, Buzz and the gang!

Let's talk about the Kids Clubs!

There are so many amazing spaces designed for kids.  From littlest cruisers to our tweens and teens there is something for all ages!  Disney's Oceaneer Club will even have the first ever secret entrance into the club!  Kids will be able to slide right into the club!  This club will be non-stop fun.  Ages 3-12 will explore the creative world of Walt Disney Imagineering, become part of their favorite fairy tale stories, and even train alongside Marvel Super Heroes!  

Marvel Super Hero Academy is a high tech Avengers head quarters young requites will train alongside some of their favorite Super Heroes.  Spider Man, Black Panther, Ant Man, and The Wasp will be there!  Kids can also choose their own super hero suit and put it to the test!  It is going to be epic.

Have you ever wanted to channel your enter artist with Rapunzel?  Read stories with Belle?  Or perfect your icy powers with Elsa?  Well now you can!  At Fairytale Hall young princess and princes will find themselves in Rapunzel's Art Studio, Belle's Library and Anna and Elsa's Sommerhus. 

Kids can also see what it is like to be a real Disney Imagineer!!  Disney Imagineers create, design, and build Disney theme parks, resorts, and cruise ships!  In the first of its kind interactive lab, kids will get an inside look at what it takes to make the magic.  They will even be able to design their own roller coaster and virtually ride it.  

Let's talk about the entertainment!

It's not a Disney Cruise without Broadway style musicals, characters, fireworks at sea and so much more.  The Walt Disney theater on the Disney Wish, has a magical forest design.  It is the perfect setting for the musical productions.  Disney's Aladdin is being reimagined and will be on the Disney Wish.  There will also be 2 original shows that are being developed for the Disney Wish as well.  More to come on those details at a later date.

Let's talk about how much fun adults can have too!

Disney Cruise Line is famous for creating the ultimate vacations for families, but people are often surprised to learn just how much fun and relaxation adults can have too.  Get ready to planet hop through the galaxy at Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge.  When you enter this lounge, you will board a spaceship where you will sip otherworldly concoctions and enjoy galaxy wide panoramic views of the worlds of Tatooine, Mustafar, Batuu and more.  There will also be a suite of adult exclusive dining experiences inspired by Disney's Beauty & The Beast.  The Rose will be the perfect setting for a before or after dinner cocktail.  Next stop is a reimagined classic Palo steakhouse featuring décor inspired by Cogsworth.  It will be Italian dining with the refinement of a modern steakhouse.  Enchante will be the most elegant dining experience inspired by Lumiere.  The food will be as spectacular as the setting.  There will also be a Quiet Cover an adult exclusive retreat on the upper deck with an infinity pool or head to Senses Spa for a relaxing treatment.

Let's talk about the place where you and your family will truly make yourselves at home!

Your stateroom will have an enchanted new look, with beautiful artwork, and elegant details inspired by our favorite Disney characters and stories.  The staterooms offer amazing ocean views, plenty of storage options, and upscale amenities and great features for families.  When it comes to suites they are taking them to the next level literally!  The Disney Wish will feature the first ever two story Royal Suites.  These are gorgeous rooms and have a spiral staircase and stained glass artwork and stunning views of the ocean.

Let's talk about the dining venues and the food for families! 

The family restaurants are the best.  There will be 3 new concepts for the Disney Wish!  You can see your favorite Frozen characters perform while you eat.  I can't think of anything better.    It is a Frozen themed theatrical dining experience on the Disney Wish.  Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf will all take center stage to entertain guests during a 1 of a kind musical celebration.  It will have world class cuisine with Nordic influences.  Let's go back in time to Hollywood in 1923!  Named after the year Walt Disney Studios was founded.  It will be a dining experience that combines classic Hollywood elegance with a menu inspired by California's fusion of cultural flavors.  Worlds of Marvel will transport you to an Avengers technology showcase where you will play an interactive role  in an action packed mission that unfolds around you.  This will be the first ever Marvel cinematic dining adventure.  It will be an epic dining adventure you will not forget.

This all sounds pretty spectacular.  I can't wait to find out more and set sail on the Disney Wish in summer 2022.  It can't get here soon enough!
