Discover or rediscover in this article all the information about the Disney Wish!
The Disney Wish is the 5th and last cruise ship of the Disney Cruise Line. It will make its debut at sea in the summer of 2022. The Disney Wish is also one of three new ships that will join the Disney Cruise Line fleet through 2025. These three ships, powered by liquefied natural gas and with nearly 1,250 cabins, will be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
Aboard the Disney Wish, the beloved fantasy worlds and stories of Disney, Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar will come to life like never before.
The Disney Wish will continue the Disney Cruise Line tradition by incorporating an elegant, classic exterior design – a tribute to the golden age of cruising – and iconic Mickey Mouse colors.
One of the hallmarks of Disney Cruise Line is the ornate artwork on the bow of each ship. For Disney Wish, the elegant filigree artwork on the bow – an intricate scroll pattern reminiscent of classic 1930s ocean liners – will feature Captain Minnie Mouse 🐭 for the first time!
The stern of the ship will feature a custom sculpture of Rapunzel hanging by her enchanted hair, who will appear to “decorate” the stern of the ship with her brush and the help of her chameleon friend, Pascal.
The Grand Hall
This large, bright and elegant space will welcome guests as soon as they come aboard. Its fairytale castle-inspired design is infused with French Gothic, Baroque and Rococo influences that will bring columns, sculptures, trim and ornaments to life.
At the foot of the grand staircase, beneath the glow of the wishing star, stands a majestic bronze statue of Cinderella. A cornerstone of the Walt Disney Company’s legacy, the story of Cinderella exemplifies the magic that turns wishes into dreams and dreams into reality
This statue is just one of many tributes to her story in the design of the Grand Hall. Many other details are hidden in the railings, the stained glass windows in Cinderella’s colors, the carpet whose patterns represent icons from the film, and the winks to her carriage and glass slipper in the metalwork and lighting.
The aquatic spaces
Disney Wish has the first ever Disney attraction at sea called: AquaMouse! This new attraction has a dedicated storyline, show scenes, lighting, special effects and even a few surprises.
As you board the AquaMouse, you’ll adventure into the animated world of the short films “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” and discover an original and unique story to this attraction: Scuba Scramble. Mickey and Minnie have created their own tour company called Port Misadventures and invite you to join them on an underwater excursion to the Mermaid Lagoon that will inevitably (and amusingly) go wrong.
The journey begins when you board a two-seater vehicle and enter a magical tunnel that teleports you into the animated world of “Scuba Scramble” through virtual portholes. Along the way, you’ll encounter curious sea creatures, Disney characters and over 60 water effects that bring the adventures to life, all perfectly synchronized to an original score by Emmy-nominated composer Christopher Willis (“The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse”).
Thrills guaranteed on 230 meters around the upper deck!
On Disney Wish, families will have more pools, more deck space and more restaurants than ever before. In addition to the AquaMouse, the expansive Mickey and friends area will feature six pools of varying sizes and depths, spaciously spaced across the tiered decks and surrounded by lounge chairs. A fast food area with a festive touch will also be available.
Adults can indulge in the serenity of the sun at Quiet Cove, a peaceful retreat dedicated to lounging, sipping and relaxing. Away from the hustle and bustle of family activities, this secluded adults-only area will feature an infinity pool, hot tubs, a poolside bar and a chic café.
For the little ones, there is a brand new Toy Story themed area designed especially for families with young children. This area includes a splash zone, wading pool, “Slide-a-saurus Rex” family waterslide and smoothie bar

Disney’s Oceaneer Club (3 to 12 years old)
Children aged 3 to 12 have a space completely dedicated to them on board the Disney Wish: Disney’s Oceaneer Club. And for the first time ever on a Disney Cruise Line ship, this club is accessible via a secret slide in the Grand Hall! Cool, isn’t it?
Disney’s Oceaneer Club is composed of 3 different areas:
