On Thursday, April 29, Disney unveiled the first look at the Disney Wish. Setting sail from Port Canaveral, Fla., in summer 2022, the Disney Wish promises a wide variety of adventures and delights for the whole family.
From Captain Minnie at the helm to a golden Cinderella statue in the Grand Hall, the whole ship is packed with Disney magic. On the upper deck, you can experience the first ever Disney attraction at sea – the AquaMouse. With show scenes, lighting and special effects, you and your family can enter the Mickey Mouse cartoon “Scuba Scramble.” This water attraction spans 760 feet around the upper deck, and is sure to be a family favorite.
That’s not the only thing the kids will love, though. The Disney Wish features a reimagined Disney’s Oceaneer Club, with a secret slide for kids to enter from the Grand Hall. In the Oceaneer Club, kids can discover their powers at the Marvel Super Hero Academy, flex their creative muscles at Fairytale Hall and become inventors at the Walt Disney Imagineering Lab.
The Disney Wish also features brand new experiences for grown-ups, like the immersive Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge, where you can order drinks while gazing at views from a galaxy far, far away. Grown-ups will also love the trio of Beauty and the Beast themed dining experiences: the Rose lounge, the Cogsworth-themed Palo Steakhouse, and the Lumiere-themed Enchante.
Kids get hungry too, though, and there are plenty of experiences for a family to choose from. The Disney Wish offers three new family restaurants. 1923 is a restaurant inspired by old Hollywood, featuring California-inspired foods and decorated with animation pencil sketches. At Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure, you can dine on a menu infused with Nordic influences while being serenaded by Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and even Olaf. At Worlds of Marvel, you and your family will experience an immersive, cinematic dining adventure inspired by the Marvel universe.
We’ve only gotten a sneak peek at all the new experiences waiting aboard the Disney Wish, but it’s already enough to be excited about. Want to make sure you can sail with Captain Minnie in 2022? Bookings open on May 27, 2021.
