Disney Wish Ship Design
The magic will begin in the Grand Hall — a bright and elegant space that will welcome guests as they first step onboard. Also referred to as Disney Cruise Line’s castle on the seas. The three-story atrium features a grand staircase and at its base is the ship’s statue which is of none other than Cinderella. The Fairy Godmother has added pixie dust throughout the Grand Hall including on the railings, columns and topped it all off with a swirling spiral of crystal gems crowned with an awe-inspiring wishing star.
“Enchantment is about unlocking the wonder in everything we do and experience,” said Laura Cabo, portfolio creative executive of Walt Disney Imagineering. “For the Disney Wish we are … infusing every inch of this enchanted ship with more Disney stories and characters than ever before. The Disney Wish will be a place where families really do get to wish upon a star.”

The Disney Wish will elevate the concierge experience by doubling the number of premium concierge cabins and suites, including Disney’s very first cabins located above deck, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning ocean views from the bow of the ship.

With exceptional attention to detail, guests will enjoy a variety of dining experiences with friendly, familiar, personalized service every evening.

Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure
Disney ‘s first ‘Frozen’ theatrical dining experience, bringing the world of Arendelle to life through an immersive live show – featuring favorite characters like Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf – and world-class cuisine steeped in Nordic influences.
Exclusive to the Disney Wish, families are invited to attend a royal engagement party for Queen Anna and Kristoff, picking up the story where Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen 2 left off. Elsa and Olaf will host the celebration with catering provided by their friend Oaken’s “Hearty Party Planning Service… and Sauna” and live entertainment by “local” musicians who specialize in Nordic renditions of familiar Frozen songs.
Throughout the meal, guests will enjoy live musical performances by these beloved characters and will even get the opportunity to join the festivities with fun table crafts, hilarious sing-alongs and a grand finale that’ll have everyone in the audience on their feet.
Designed in the style of a theater-in-the-round, this purpose-built entertainment venue will feature dining tables situated around a small center stage and all the theatrical bells and whistles needed to bring a story to life in 360-degree glory. Invisible fiber optics embedded in the ceiling will conjure Elsa’s icy magic, and panoramic windows will magically transform from real-time ocean views to the colorful dancing lights of the Aurora Borealis.
Disney Cruise Line is developing brand-new looks for Anna and Kristoff, plus an all-new way to encounter Olaf through true-to-scale, cutting-edge puppetry that can talk and interact with families as they dine, lending his signature humor and charm to the merriment.
The one-of-a-kind menu for Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure combines traditional flavors and ingredients from the Nordic region with modern, family-friendly fare. Guests will delight in this scrumptious smorgasbord of superior seafoods, rustic game dishes, and tasty nods to the Frozen story. And, last but not least, dessert! It wouldn’t be Queen Anna’s party without plenty of chocolate.
Worlds of Marvel
The first-ever Marvel Cinematic Food Adventure, where you’ll take an interactive role in an action-packed Avengers mission that unfolds around you.
This upscale-restaurant-meets-technology-showcase will up the ante on the traditional “dinner and a show” concept. Outfitted with state-of-the-art Pym Tech and decked out in signature Stark-itecture style, the venue offers surprises in all shapes and sizes, from the tiniest design “Easter eggs” to the larger-than-life story that takes place.
True to its name, Worlds of Marvel will take families on a flavorful tour of the real and fictional settings of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The menu features dishes inspired by legendary locales like African Wakanda, Eastern European Sokovia and the Avengers’ home base of New York City.
Worlds of Marvel will offer an original storyline starring fan-favorite Avengers and an infamous foe.
Named for the year the Walt Disney Company was founded, it is an elegant celebration of the company’s legacy, paying homage to the golden age of animation and offering a tasteful tribute to its Californian heritage with dishes inspired by the state’s unique fusion of cultural flavors.
The two lavishly appointed dining rooms, aptly named for the men behind the magic of the original film studio – Walt and Roy Disney. Adorned with more than 1,000 drawings, props and other tools of the trade, providing an inside look at the evolution of Disney animation from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Frozen 2.
At 1923, guests will enjoy sophisticated dishes designed with families in mind and inspired by the fusion of cultural flavors found throughout the Golden State. The diverse menu will mirror the region’s unique blend of Asian, European, and South American cuisines and will feature local ingredients like fresh produce, wild honey, and earthy pistachios. All paired, of course, with a superlative selection of world-famous Napa Valley wines.
Aboard the Disney Wish, guests will savor gourmet meals and exceptional beverages at Palo Steakhouse, Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement and The Rose, an upscale suite of epicurean excellence exclusively for adults, inspired by the elegant icons of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Beauty and the Beast.
Palo Steakhouse is an evolution of the Palo restaurant that Disney cruisers know and love, now combining the relaxed sophistication of authentic Italian dining with the classic refinement of a modern steakhouse in a genteel setting inspired by Cogsworth, the tale’s majordomo-turned-enchanted-clock.
An elegant, welcoming environment with spectacular ocean views off the back of the ship. The venue has a warm, luxurious palette of rich woods and shining metals, along with artwork and details that evoke ornate clocks, pendulums, and gears. A private dining room will be available for more intimate gatherings of up to 12 guests.
The Palo Steakhouse menu offers a selection of exquisite Italian dishes and the world’s best steaks, from the most elite American prime cuts to melt-in-your-mouth Australian wagyu to succulent Japanese Kobe and Miyazaki beefs. The menu offers pairings with the finest Italian wines and bold craft beers. For dessert, the signature Palo chocolate soufflé is prepared fresh-to-order and served piping hot with luscious vanilla bean and chocolate sauces.
Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement
Enchanté will offer the most luxurious dining experience onboard the Disney Wish. Featuring a gourmet menu crafted by three-Michelin-starred Chef Arnaud Lallement — of L’Assiette Champenoise, near Reims, France — one of the culinary masterminds behind the French-inspired fine dining experience at Remy aboard the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
This romantic and intimate venue will evoke the dazzling candlelight and lavish hospitality of the film’s candelabra maitre d’, Lumiere, with shimmering light fixtures and illuminations that will give life to the two intimate dining areas and private 10-seat dining room. With an elegant infusion of soft blues and metallic embellishments, the enchanting atmosphere will be completed by stunning ocean views.
The menu will offer superior products and seasonal ingredients sourced from around the world to create an exceptional ensemble of international dishes, masterfully developed with the passion, philosophy, and expertise of Chef Lallement. From the moment they enter the glittering champagne room, guests will be swept up in a sumptuous journey marked by consummate cuisine, superlative wines and first-class service.
Entertainment on the Disney Wish
Disney specializes in family entertainment, so it should come as no surprise that the Disney Wish will amp up the opportunities for shows and experiences. The combination of innovative new venue concepts and evolutionary storytelling techniques will set the stage for original productions, guest-favorite shows and brand-new experiences for the entire family to enjoy.
Among the highlights: Three Broadway-style shows, including Aladdin, a Musical Journey (and two new productions that have yet to be announced); two movie theaters showing first-run films; and the Grand Hall stage in the atrium. Of course, no Disney vacation is complete without fireworks so the Disney Wish will have fireworks at sea.
There are also two family entertainment concepts that will eventually come to life: Luna, which will transform into an adult entertainment area at night, and the superhero-themed Hero Zone, where families can participate in an obstacle course and competitions.
If the Grand Hall is the castle of the Disney Wish, Luna is the town square: an event gathering place that evokes the warmth and enchantment of classic Disney stories. This brand-new entertainment hub 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 and night.
The celestial design is inspired by the Disney and Pixar short La Luna, this venue will be outfitted with a two-story LED screen wall, stylish stage, full-service bar, and spacious seating. The lower level will buzz with community and life in the energetic atmosphere. For a more intimate setting, the balcony is suitable for enjoying the festivities in small groups, with secluded seating in semi-private booths.
A completely new category of active family play for the Disney Cruise Line fleet, Hero Zone is a futuristic sports arena where physical activity will blend with imagination, alternating between an elaborate family obstacle course and a free-play sports hub.
Families will take on action-packed physical challenges themed to some of Disney’s most incredible heroes during over-the-top, game show-style competitions. Balcony viewing space will be available for other guests to watch, cheer and admire the fearless feats performed during the epic games.
Walt Disney Theatre
On the Disney Wish, the design of the Walt Disney Theatre will evoke an enchanted forest, imbuing the atmosphere with a sense of magic inspired by scenes from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ legendary film Fantasia.
The unparalleled roster of original Broadway-style stage shows developed exclusively for the Disney Cruise Line fleet by world-class creative teams is one of the items that set the fleet apart from the competition. The elegant 1,274-seat show palace spans three decks and offers orchestra and balcony seating.
The theater will be equipped with state-of the-art technology, including the most robust projection mapping capabilities of any Disney ship and a Dolby Atmos 3D audio system — a first for the cruise industry — to create a transformative theatrical experience rivaling anything on land or at sea.
‘Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular’
As part of its line-up of theatrical productions, the Disney Wish will feature a reimagined adaptation of Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular, a guest-favorite show from across the fleet. This fast-paced musical comedy is based on the classic Disney Animation tale of “street rat” Aladdin meeting the wise-cracking Genie, battling the evil Jafar and falling in love with Princess Jasmine.
Iconic scenes and songs from the movie will be re-created on stage, including a lively, Las Vegas-style rendition of Friend Like Me and a breathtaking performance of A Whole New World atop a flying magic carpet. Grammy Award-winning composer Alan Menken created an original song for Disney Cruise Line entitled To Be Free, a solo performance for Jasmine.
The Disney Wish will elevate the onboard cinematic experience with two intimate screening rooms steeped in Disney storytelling. These boutique cinemas will be the first in the cruise industry to offer Dolby Atmos 3D audio technology for the most immersive movie-going experience on the high seas.
At 84 and 86 seats respectively, the Wonderland and Never Land cinemas offer guests more options than ever before to watch classic and first-run films from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm and more.
- Wonderland Cinema, inspired by the fantastical world of Alice in Wonderland, incorporates otherworldly creatures and distinctive characters who inhabit the ever-curiouser Tulgey Wood. The woodland motif continues into the ceiling to create the feeling that guests are peering up through the enchanted tree canopy above.
- Never Land Cinema, inspired by Peter Pan’s flight from London to Never Land, guests are swept into their own flight of fantasy, past the second star to the right and straight into the magical world of movies. As guests revisit iconic scenes such as Skull Rock and Mermaid Lagoon, the venue’s night-sky color palette will light up with the flutter of Tinker Bell’s wings.
The family pool district of the Disney Wish will also double as an entertainment venue. With a poolside stage and Funnel Vision a jumbo LED screen, guests will enjoy a variety of entertainment ranging from movies and live sporting events to brand-new deck parties and nighttime fireworks spectaculars developed exclusively for this ship.
Kids Clubs on the Disney Wish
Great programming for kids is a must from Disney Cruise Line — and parents won’t be disappointed.
Aboard the Disney Wish, kids of all ages will find a ship filled with fun – from an immersive wonderland of heroes, princesses, and storytellers, to a whimsical nursery for babies and toddlers, to seriously cool hangouts for tweens and teens.
- It’s A Small World Nursery (for children ages 6 months to 3 years)
- Disney’s Oceaneer Club (for children ages 3 to 12)
- Edge (for tweens ages 11 to 14)
- Vibe (for teens ages 14 to 17)
It’s A Small World Nursery (for children ages 6 months to 3 years)
For the littlest cruisers babysitting services in a whimsical environment inspired by the beloved Disney attraction of the same name. Here, little ones will play games, make crafts, watch movies, read books and even spend time with special Disney friends under the expert care of Disney-trained counselors.
In the nursery, toddlers will take a playful trip around the world in the company of Disney, Pixar and Marvel characters reimagined as “it’s a small world” dolls. Each section of the space is themed to different areas of the world, with characters grouped by their homelands.
In the play room, magical murals will feature interactive hand cranks that trigger delightful effects. Little ones will be able to spark a cascade of ice magic from Elsa’s hand, send Aladdin and Jasmine swaying on the magic carpet, uncover Flynn Rider as he clings to Rapunzel’s enchanted tresses, and more. A toy train will chug along the ceiling, filling the space with colorful lights, playful sounds and kinetic energy.
Disney’s Oceaneer Club (for children ages 3 to 12)
Aboard the Disney Wish, this club will feature more themed spaces than ever, each filled with endless entertainment – from storytelling, arts and crafts, and dress-up to toys, games and watching Disney movies. It will also offer more opportunities for kids to have fun with their favorite Disney friends during an exclusive line-up of interactive games and programs where characters don’t just stop by – they stay to play.
With the club located on deck 2, parents will be able to check-in their children in the Grand Hall on deck 3 and then send them “down the rabbit hole” on a twisting slide that lands directly and securely into the Oceaneer Lab. An alternate entrance called a door is available for parents.
Marvel Super Hero Academy
This high-tech Avengers headquarters is where young “recruits” will train to be the next generation of Super-Heroes with the help of their own real-life heroes, like Spider-Man, Black Panther, Ant-Man, and the Wasp.
Children will begin by choosing a superhero suit from a selection of power sets based on Marvel heroes like Iron Man and Captain Marvel, and watching their choices become nanotech forms around mannequins in real-time. Once they are suited up it’s time for “Avengers: Mission Training”. The gesture-based technology game will put their new suits and skills to the test as they virtually battle bad guys.
Fairytale Hall is a royal trio of activity rooms where kids will join some of their favorite Disney Princesses and Frozen Queens as they let their creativity shine at Rapunzel’s Art Studio, read and act out stories at Belle’s Library, and test newfound icy powers at Anna and Elsa’s Sommerhus.
- Inspired by her love of expression, Rapunzel’s Art Studio will be a creative escape where kids will have the best day ever making their own arts and crafts projects, like floating lanterns and paintings.
- Belle’s Library will be a cozy corner for reading and acting out stories with the help of Disney characters. An enchanted painting above the fireplace will magically transform to bring the tales to life.
- Anna and Elsa are never far from snow, even in their summer cabin. Here, kids will unlock icy powers during “Frozen Fun,” a series of gesture-based games hosted by Olaf, which include snowball fights with friendly trolls and a hunt for mischievous Snowgies – the tiny, playful snowmen created by Elsa in the animated short Frozen Fever.
Walt Disney Imagineering Lab
Walt Disney Imagineering Lab is a first-of-its-kind opportunity for kids to discover the secrets of world-renowned Disney Imagineers — the creative masterminds behind Disney theme parks, resorts, and cruise ships — with hands-on activities and inventive experiments. Sorcerer Mickey, the ambassador of Walt Disney Imagineering, may even stop by to lend a wand to the newly minted magic makers.
One of the most exciting things Imagineers get to do is design roller coasters. At the Ride Studio, kids will create a coaster along the lines of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain or Matterhorn Bobsleds – and then climb into a capsule where they will virtually ride their imaginative masterpiece.
Edge (for tweens ages 11 to 14)
Have fun, make friends and play games in a bright, colorful hangout inspired by a chic New York City loft. A faux-grass picnic area and graphic art displays called “photo walls” will provide ample opportunities for tweens to capture cool, shareable vacation pics that will be the envy of their friends back home.
Located on deck 5, the exclusive entrance to Edge will be hidden behind a framed piece of art that reimagines world-famous paintings in a pop art-inspired compilation of Disney characters, including Minnie as the ‘Girl with the Pearl Earring’ and Donald as Salvador Dali.
Vibe (for teens ages 14 to 17)
Meet new friends, watch movies, play games and participate in entertaining activities created just for them. Inspired by a Parisian artists’ loft, this stylish space features classic architectural elements with an electric retro twist, with vibrant neon signs and funky pop art. Combine those with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the ocean, and every angle in Vibe will offer a selfie-worthy backdrop for the trendiest teens on the high seas.
Pools, Waterslides, and Splash pads on the Disney Wish
Disney takes fun in the sun to the next level aboard Disney Wish with an all-new family water attraction and three themed districts that provide dedicated space for families, kids and adults.
Families will have more pools, more deck space, and more dining options than ever before in a spacious Mickey and Friends-themed space. In addition to AquaMouse, the area will feature six swimming pools – spaciously spread over the decks and surrounded by lounge chairs – and a new take on casual, fast food with a festive touch of characters.
AquaMouse – The First Disney Attraction at Sea
The first-ever Disney attraction at sea. Families will be immersed in The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse animated shorts. Complete with show scenes, lighting and special effects, and splashtacular surprises, this first-of-its-kind water ride will send guests on a fun family adventure through 760 feet of winding tubes suspended high above the upper decks.
As the story goes, Mickey and Minnie are starting their very own seaside excursion company — aptly named Port Misadventures — onboard the Disney Wish, and adventuresome cruisers will join them on an undersea excursion to Mermaid Lagoon that will inevitably (and hilariously) go awry.
The journey will begin when guests board their two-seater ride vehicles and ascend into a magical tunnel that will teleport them into the cartoon world of Scuba Scramble, a new animated short that plays out through oversized virtual portholes. Along the way, they’ll encounter curious sea creatures, familiar Disney friends and more than 60 water effects that bring the subaquatic hijinks to life – all perfectly synched to an original musical score by Emmy-nominated composer Christopher Willis (The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse).
At the height of the show, guests will blast out of the tunnel and embark on a wild water ride around the upper decks. First, they’ll zip into the forward funnel through an enclosed tube surrounded by dazzling lighting effects, followed by a quick dash through a dark tunnel that opens up to reveal breathtaking views of the ocean.
They’ll then jet up and down a series of speed blasters as they are propelled toward the grand finale: a soaring loop over the edge of the ship, with clear views down to the deep blue sea. With that, they’ll splash down for a sendoff message from Mickey and Minnie – another successful tour in the books!
Poolside fun for the Whole Family
In addition to AquaMouse, families will have more pools, more deck space and more dining than ever before in an expansive pool district themed to Mickey and friends.
Located on decks 11 and 12 midship, this area will include six pools of various sizes and depths, spaciously staggered among tiered decks and surrounded by lounge chairs to provide families with space to stretch out and soak up the sunshine. Throughout the day, guests will enjoy a variety of poolside entertainment on Funnel Vision, a jumbo LED display that screens Disney movies, TV shows, live sporting events and more. For guests seeking a laid-back environment, another family pool will be available on deck 14 forward.
The Disney Wish will feature brand-new food and beverage offerings on the upper decks, including relaxed indoor dining and a fresh take on quick and casual fare with a festive character twist.
Toy Story Splash Zone
Toddlers and young children prepare to go to “swim”-finity and beyond in this Toy Story-themed neighborhood designed especially for them. This whimsical water paradise will feature a splash zone, wading pool, family-friendly waterslide, and smoothie bar.
Children will have a tub-full of fun in the Toy Story Splash Zone. A fantastical water playground where Woody, Buzz and friends will be adorably reimagined as larger-than-life rubber bath toys that move and spray water at kids’ whim. Inspired by the Disney and Pixar short “Partysaurus Rex,” this bathtub-themed splash zone will combine the Old West of Woody’s Roundup with the intergalactic world of Buzz Lightyear, featuring two toddler-sized slides and pop jets, geysers and bubblers galore.
To complete the splish-splashing antics, everyone in the family will enjoy a trip down Slide-a-saurus Rex – a double-looping waterslide that sends guests plunging “down the drain” with the rest of the toys when the metaphorical bathtub overflows.
Other features of this playful pool district will include Trixie’s Falls — a six-inch-deep wading pool with a small fountain and waterfall — and Wheezy’s Freezies, a smoothie bar serving up refreshing fruit blends for the perfect cool-down treat.
Adult Areas on the Disney Wish
Aboard a Disney Cruise, we are all kids at heart, but sometimes it’s nice to be treated like an adult. The Disney Wish is treating grown-ups to a number of kid-free zones on the ship. You will escape, relax, dine and play in more ways than ever with exclusive venues and entertainment tailored just for adults.
Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge
For the first time on a Disney ship, you’ll embark on a journey through the Star Wars galaxy. This upscale bar is designed like a luxurious spaceship. This immersive experience will be for adults-only every night. The interactive tasting experiences and signature drinks are inspired by destinations such as Batuu, Tatooine, and Mustafar.
The venue’s sleek interior design and metallic detailing are inspired by Dryden Vos’ ship in Solo: A Star Wars Story. While guests sip their galactic concoctions, this space-faring voyage will transport them to iconic locations from the eras of the Republic, Empire and First Order, employing hyperspace jumps to travel from planet to planet while sensational scenes unfold just beyond the ship’s panoramic viewport at each stop.
Ranging from serene vistas to action-packed encounters, the spectacles seen through this virtual “window” into the galaxy will feature famous space ships from the films and fan-favorite locales like Batuu, Tatooine, Mustafar, and Coruscant. The experience will be amplified by surround-sound audio and a holotube that presents holographic models of nearby ships.
Beauty and the Beast Inspired Dining
Enjoy gourmet meals and exceptional beverages in an epicurean, upscale, adults-only suite, inspired by the film “Beauty and the Beast”.
The Rose is a chic lounge at the entrance of Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté. Guests will enter The Rose through a corridor of beautiful, bespoke artwork commissioned exclusively for the Disney Wish. This grand entrance culminates in a gilded, golden rotunda, unfolding into a plush lounge with rich velvet seating, glorious views and magical illuminations.
The Rose will be an idyllic setting for a pre-dinner aperitif or after-dinner cocktail, with an extensive selection of high-end wines and liquors. Guests will also indulge in a special menu of gourmet amuse-bouche and small plates from the Enchanté galley, curated by Chef Lallement.
This restaurant by chef Arnaud Lallement will offer the most luxurious gastronomic experience onboard. This romantic and intimate place evokes the dazzling spirit of the candelabra butler of the film, Lumière. For more information see Dining.
Combining the relaxed sophistication of an authentic Italian meal with the classic sophistication of a modern steakhouse in an elegant setting inspired by Cogsworth, the butler of tale turned enchanted clock. For more information see Dining.
Quiet Cove Pool District
