The last time we went on a cruise (which feels like a lifetime ago but was back in Feb of 2020), it was aboard a Disney ship and you know we had the most magical time. We always have a good time and while I missed being on a Disney cruise, it wasn’t until yesterday, when I learned about the Disney Wish, that it really made me miss all the fun we used to have. I was ready to pack my bags but alas, we need to wait until May 2022 before the Disney Wish sets sail.
The Disney Wish offers new ways to enjoy the magic of Disney at sea. So, what makes this ship so amazing (besides being a Disney ship)? Here are some highlights that have been broken down into categories for you.
An Attraction At Sea
It is the first Disney Ship to offer an attraction as Sea. Yes, there is an actual water attraction that you and the family can enjoy, the AquaMouse. Complete with show scenes, lighting and special effects, and splashtacular surprises, this wild water ride zigs, zags and zooms through 760 feet of winding tubes suspended high above the upper decks.
The Kids Clubs have been reimagined.
- There is a secret entrance into the club that allows your kiddos to slide into the room.
- They’ll be able to train with Super Heroes at the Marvel Super Hero Academy. Spiderman, The Wasp, Ant-Man and Black Panther are some of the few characters that will be making a special appearance while they train.
- Fairytale Hall offers a royal trio of activity rooms where princesses and princes will let their creativity shine at Rapunzel’s Art Studio, read and act out stories at Belle’s Library, and test newfound powers at Anna and Elsa’s Sommerhus.
- Walt Disney Imagineering Lab allows the kiddos the unique opportunity for kids to discover the secrets of world-renowned Disney Imagineers with hands-on activities and inventive experiments.
