Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship The Disney Wish has final been unveiled, and we have all the details!
I can not express to you how excited I am for Disney’s 5th Cruise ship, The Disney Wish! Disney promised to unveil so details, boy did they deliver. So sit back and take a long at the most magical Disney Cruise Line ship to date!
The Disney Wish will sail its maiden voyage — a five-night cruise to Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay — on June 9, 2022, followed by an inaugural season of three- and four-night cruises to the same destinations from Port Canaveral, Florida. Bookings open to the general public on May 27, 2021.
The Grand Hall features my girl Cindy (Cinderella) and she is in her glory with a lobby themed around timeless tales of wishes come true. The theme found at the heart of so many beloved Disney stories. The fairytale castle-inspired Grand Hall, where a dazzling wishing star descends from the shimmering chandelier above. Big plus is a stage that seems to be present in the main lobby, which is brand new to the ships.
“Daring to dream even bigger, our Imagineers are creating a breathtaking new world of enchantment aboard the Disney Wish,” said Laura Cabo, portfolio creative executive, Walt Disney Imagineering. “This motif provides the perfect platform to infuse Disney storytelling into every aspect of the design, giving the Disney Wish its own unique personality and a completely new look unlike anything else at sea.”
New Water Features!
Disney Cruise Line will take fun in the sun to the next level on board the Disney Wish with a brand-new family water attraction and three themed districts that offer dedicated space for families, children and adults alike.
Guests will be immersed in “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” animated shorts aboard the first-ever Disney attraction at sea, AquaMouse. I’m thinking that this is a combination of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and a water ride. This brand new attraction has 760 feet of winding tubes suspended high above the upper decks.
In addition to AquaMouse, the area will feature six pools — spaciously staggered among tiered decks and surrounded by lounge chairs — and a fresh take on quick and casual fare with a festive character twist.
Little ones will delight in an all-new Toy Story-themed district designed especially for families with toddlers and young children. This whimsical water wonderland will include a splash zone, wading pool, family waterslide and smoothie bar.
Can’t wait to check these out!
Aboard Disney Cruise Line, my kids absolute favorite areas are the Kids Clubs and the Disney Wish has announced some brand new features, and some returning that we know and love from the other ships.
Disney’s Oceaneer’s Club is getting an update! Children ages 3 to 12 will enter the magical world of their favorite Disney stories in the reimagined Disney’s Oceaneer Club.

Teen lounges from the other ships will be running as well.
All Things Entertainment
Disney Cruise Line’s entertainment is the top of the line, and they are going to go above their gold standard on the Disney Wish.
As mentioned the Grand Hall will evolve from a fairytale gathering space into an environmental theater through the magic of built-in special effects and the first-ever atrium stage on a Disney ship. Dedicated shows and interactive entertainment will come to life all around the hall, putting guests front and center as they play a special role in the magic.
Luna – is a brand-new entertainment hub that will transition from a daytime setting for family fun into an elegant evening venue for adult-exclusive entertainment, offering a variety of live shows and interactive programming throughout the day.
Hero Zone – is a futuristic sports arena where physical activity will blend with imagination during action-packed challenges and game show-style competitions for families to take on together.
Staying true with the brand they will have the Walt Disney Theater showing their broadway shows, and announced a reimagined Aladdin will be back and better than ever!
They will of course have their cinemas to show brand new released Disney Movies for all of the ships guests.
Most importantly the food!
Disney announced the the Disney Wish will have ALL NEW Dining restaurants for their guests, that’s right, all new themes! Take a look at the three options for restaurants, I can’t decide which one I am more excited for!
