A Disney Wish Come True - First Look at the Next Disney Cruise Line Ship

Setting sail in summer 2022, the Disney Wish will be a celebration of Disney’s rich legacy of enchanting storytelling that brings to life the fantastical worlds and beloved characters at the heart of Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars adventures like never before. (Disney)

Disney Cruise Line has been leading the way in family cruising for years now and fans of the cruise line have been anxiously awaiting new additions to the small fleet of four ships.  Disney Cruise Line shared the first look at the next ship in the fleet, the Disney Wish, and it is AMAZING!  You can watch the entire 30+ minute preview on YouTube, but you can also grab my "CliffsNotes" version below.



What's New on the Disney Wish?


Guests will be immersed in “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” animated shorts aboard the first-ever Disney attraction at sea, AquaMouse. Complete with show scenes, lighting and special effects, and splashtacular surprises, this wild water ride is sure to delight everyone in the family as they zig, zag and zoom through 760 feet of winding tubes suspended high above the upper decks. (Disney)


First, let's talk about the pool deck.  You may recall from my guide to the pool deck on the Disney Dream, that Disney Cruise Line really goes above and beyond in providing family friendly spaces that are fun and beautful.  The Disney Wish will be adding an all new first-of-its-kind attraction at sea called AquaMouse.  This new experience will differ from the popular AquaDuck in that it's more than just a water coaster, it's a complete ride experience.  It kind of reminds me of Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway in that it will feature Mickey and Minnie in a "shorts" story, but with a nautical twist.  I'm also thrilled to hear that they will have an infinity pool as part of the Quiet Cove area for adults only - it looks breathtaking!


Did you know that Disney Cruise Line is one of our favorite "adults only" vacations? Find out why!




For the first time on a Disney ship, guests will embark on a space-jumping tour of the Star Wars galaxy at Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge, a high-end bar styled as a luxurious yacht-class spaceship. This richly themed, immersive experience will be reserved for adults every evening, offering interactive tasting experiences and signature beverages inspired by destinations such as Batuu, Tatooine and Mustafar. (Disney)



Speaking of adult spaces, the new Star Wars themed Hyperspace Lounge is truly out of this galaxy and the adult only dining options look phenomenal.  Those adult dining options are themed around Beauty and the Beast and if Palo and Remy have taught me anything, they will deliver high quality food and an elegant dining experience.  Sticking with food, Disney Cruise Line will keep the tradition of rotational dining going strong with new, more immersive dining experiences including a Frozen themed dinner show and Worlds of Marvel - a dining experience so top secret, we'll have to wait a bit longer to learn more!  I loved the dining spaces on the Disney Dream, but these seem to really step up their game!


With an all-new look and feel steeped in enchantment and inspired by dreamy Disney stories, every stateroom on board the Disney Wish will be a luxurious, peaceful retreat designed with ample room for families, plenty of storage and upscale amenities. Most of the ship’s 1,254 staterooms will offer an ocean view, including 877 (70%) with a spacious verandah. (Disney)



There is so much more to come on the Disney Wish including new kids spaces in the Oceaneer's Club, updated staterooms, and new entertainment experiences that will once again redefine the cruising industry.  Hey Disney Cruise Line - if you're out there - sign me up for the maiden voyage!  The Disney Wish sets sail in 2022 and guests can begin making reservations at the end of May 2021.  Bon Voyage!
