Water Play aboard the Disney Wish with AquaMouse
AquaMouse is the First Disney Attraction at Sea
Families will be immersed in “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” animated shorts aboard AquaMouse, the first-ever Disney attraction at sea. Complete with show scenes, lighting & 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”—on board 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 2-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. But before that blast, 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!
More Family Fun in the Sun on the Mickey and Friends Themed District
The Disney Wish features more pools, more deck space, and more dining than ever before in its expansive pool district themed to Mickey and friends.
Located on decks 11 and 12 midship, this area will include 6 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).
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. More details on these experiences will be released at a later date.
Toy Story Splash Zone for Little Kids
For families seeking a more laid-back environment, the Disney Wish will feature a little kids-only water zone. Little ones will go to “swim”-finity and beyond in a new Toy Story-themed waterplay district designed especially for families with toddlers and young children. 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 6-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.
Dedicated Adult Spaces Provide Serenity when Needed
Disney Wish didn't forget about its dedicated adult spaces in their new ship design.
At Disney Wish's Quiet Cove, guests ages 18 and older will find a secluded adults-only district dedicated to lounging, sipping, and soaking. Set away from the bustle of family activities, this relaxing refuge at the back of the ship will offer breathtaking panoramic views of the ocean from a luxurious infinity pool. While kids are hanging out with Disney characters in the coolest kids’ clubs at sea, parents will be able to enjoy some much-needed “me time” with an escape to Quiet Cove.
Take a dip in the pool, unwind in a whirlpool spa, relax in a chaise lounge, and indulge in a cool beverage from Cove Bar–an open-air watering hole offering beer, wine, and cocktails. A Disney Cruise Line guest favorite, Cove Cafe is a chic poolside lounge that will offer gourmet coffees, teas, specialty drinks, and treats throughout the day. For the Disney Wish, the sophisticated yet casual spot will get a fresh new look that reflects the Oceania-inspired artistry of Disney’s “Moana.”
Improved Kids' Clubs on The Disney Wish
The Oceaneer Club (ages 3-12) has been reimagined, including a slide entrance from the Grand Hall!
Aboard the Disney Wish, the Oceaneer Club will feature more themed spaces than ever, each filled with endless entertainment for every interest.
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 central hub.
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. More new spaces and experiences at Disney’s Oceaneer Club will be revealed at a later date.
Marvel Super Hero Academy
Marvel Super Hero Academy in the Oceaneer Club is a high-tech Avengers headquarters 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.
Kids will begin by choosing a super hero 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. Then it will be time for “Avengers: Mission Training,” a gesture-based technology game where they put their new suits and skills to the test as they virtually battle bad guys.
Entertainment on the Disney Wish
- Disney Wish entertainment includes The Walt Disney Theatre inspired by a magical forest and the shows will be a reimagined Aladdin, as well as two new original shows being developed
- The Grand Hall Stage is a reimagined classical Atrium performance area
- Hero Zone will be a new area where imagination meets active play, more details coming later this year
Adult Only Experiences on the Disney Wish
Adults ages 18 and up aboard the Disney Wish will escape, relax, dine and play in more ways than ever with exclusive venues and entertainment tailored just for them. Unwind and indulge, including in unique a first-of-its-kind lounge in a galaxy far, far away and a trio of premium culinary experiences inspired by a tale as old as time.
Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge
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 the films. Guests will enjoy otherworldly concoctions on their ride through space in the venue's sleek interior design and metallic detailing inspired by lavish star cruisers similar to Dryden Vos’ ship in Solo: A Star Wars Story. This space-faring voyage will transport guests 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 as guests sip their themed beverages.
This chic cocktail lounge at the entrance of Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté is inspired by the fateful flower at the heart of the Beauty and the Beast. 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.
Palo Steakhouse is an evolution of the Palo restaurant familiar to past Disney cruisers, combining the relaxed sophistication of authentic Italian dining with the classic refinement of a modern steakhouse in a genteel setting inspired by Cogsworth. An elegant, welcoming environment with spectacular ocean views off the back of the ship, the venue has been designed with 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. At Palo Steakhouse, guests will choose from 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 show-stopping menu will be paired with the finest Italian wines and bold craft beers–and for dessert, a fan-favorite indulgence: signature Palo chocolate souffle, prepared fresh-to-order & served piping hot with luscious vanilla bean and chocolate sauces.
Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement
Enchanté will offer the most luxurious dining experience onboard, 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 is inspired by Lumiere, outfitted 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 feature 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.
Senses Spa and Senses Fitness
Adult tranquility is what you will find when you visit the Senses Spa. Choose indulgent spa and beauty treatments, drawing on the serenity of natural elements to promote pampering and relaxation. Private treatment rooms, lavish spa villas for couples, and steam and aromatherapy rooms will help guests decompress, rejuvenate, and recharge.
Guests can choose from a selection of massage, facial, and acupuncture therapies, as well as specialized treatments customized to their needs, such as pain management and sleep improvement. The new Senses Fitness will offer state-of-the-art exercise and wellness facilities (including a main room with exercise equipment, weightlifting machines, and free weights, along with a dedicated cycle studio and an aerobics room). Complimentary, instructor-led fitness classes will be available throughout the cruise.
The Disney Wish will offer several brand-new spa and salon experiences to be announced at a later date.
