We are thrilled about the all new Disney Wish from Disney Cruise Line! The Disney Wish sails in June of 2022 with cruises departing for the Bahamas and Castaway Cay and we can’t wait to climb aboard. Today, we share our favorite things about the new Disney Wish cruise ship from our recent preview of this all new ship from Disney Cruise Line.
Disney Wish Dining
Disney Cruise provides a unique dining experience for Guests aboard all their cruise ships. The Disney Wish steps up the dining to a whole new level with 3 completely new dining experiences. Disney Cruise utilizes a rotational dining system on board the cruise ships where Guests stay with the same dining team while rotating to a different restaurant each night. Until now, the Disney Cruise ships all had very similar dining options, including an Animators Palette on board each ship. Now, Guests will have 3 all-new dining experiences. For experienced Disney cruisers like us, this was very exciting news.
Arrendale: A Frozen Dining Adventure
This restaurant continues the story after Frozen II. Queen Anna and Kristoff are celebrating their engagement and have invited you to join the celebration. You will enjoy music, characters like Elsa and Olaf, and a Norwegian inspired menu. The stage is right in the middle of the restaurant with tables around, so everyone has an excellent view.
Worlds of Marvel
Our second favorite addition to the Disney Wish is the restaurant called Worlds of Marvel. I actually got goosebumps when I saw this restaurant. Our family is huge Marvel fans and love the Disney Cruise with the Marvel Day at Sea.
We are so excited the Disney Wish has a Marvel dinner experience. During your dinner, you will actually be part of the Super Hero story as the Avengers may turn to you for help to save the day. This restaurant looks like so much fun!
Disney Wish Pool
One of our favorite parts of a Disney Cruise is the pool time. The pool deck on the Disney Wish looks amazing. The main area features (6) tiered pools. This is a wonderful way to experience the pool and watch your favorite movies on the huge movie screen.
For thrills, Disney has the first attraction at sea. This attraction is called the AquaMouse. It is twice as long as the AquaDuck. Plus, there is a whole story theme with your favorite Disney Characters from the new animated short called “Scuba Scramble.” This one looks like a must do! Check out our AquaMouse post for more detail about this thrilling attraction at sea.
For the little ones, they will enjoy the new Toy Story themed splash park. If adults need quiet time, you will still be able to enjoy Quiet Cove with the first ever infinity pool on the Disney Cruise Line.
Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge
I am so excited that Disney Wish finally has some fun themed areas, just for the adults! One of these spaces is the Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge. You will watch worlds drift by at this stylish bar. This bar was inspired by the movie Solo. You can sit back and sip on some out-of-this-world drinks, while being transported throughout the Star Wars galaxy.
Families can visit during the day. In the evening hours it becomes a club with a cantina-like vibe, just for adults. I am thinking I may need to pack a Star Wars costume for the Disney Wish cruise.
Disney Wish Kids Clubs
We all love the Kids Clubs on board the Disney Cruise Ships. For the Disney Wish, Disney has taken the Kids Clubs to a whole new level. One of my favorite additions is a secret entrance (just for the kids) at the Oceaneer Club. The kids can actually slide down this secret entrance into the Club. Adults are welcome to use the door (if they prefer). I am definitely going down the slide!
The Oceaneer Club has different theming areas including Fairytale Hall, Marvel Super Hero Academy, and Walt Disney Imagineering Lab. These areas are for the younger cruisers. However, Disney does offer Open House opportunities throughout the cruise. You and your teens or just you can head down to these areas during Open House to play.
For Marvel Super Hero Academy, your kids will go into the Avengers Headquarters. You may meet characters like Spider-Man, Black Panther, Ant-Man or the Wasp. Your kids will get to test their skills to see what it is like to become a SuperHero.
My favorite room in the Oceaneer Club is the Walt Disney Imagineering Lab. This is a first-of-its-kind opportunity for kids to discover the secrets of Disney Imagineers with hands-on activities and inventive experiments. You can even create your own track for Big Thunder Mountain, save it to your MagicBand, and come back and ride it later with your family.
There is so much to love on this new Disney Cruise Ship.
