Disney Imagineer Claire Weiss has shared some exciting details on how the staterooms for the upcoming Disney Wish are being constructed.
As you may know, the Disney Wish is currently being built over in the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
In her Disney Parks Blog article, Weiss explains how “The design process begins with collaboration. We spent years working with designers and artists to examine every detail; carefully considering how color, light and shapes interact to ensure the environment we create is both restful and magical. Since the majority of the finished pieces for the Disney Wish were fabricated offsite, our team built hundreds of mockups prior to final construction in order to visualize how everything is coming together.”
She continues on to say, “Once the design is finalized, we hit ‘full steam ahead’ on the production line! The 1,254 staterooms are manufactured on an assembly line, where each piece is carefully installed on a conveyor belt. That includes everything from furniture and walls to artwork and lighting. The final magic touch is when the staterooms are placed on the ship. That’s right – a crane lifts each one and places it on the Disney Wish.”
I find it fascinating that the staterooms are manufactured on an assembly line. That bit of detail is giving me vibes from the stories I’ve heard on how Disney’s Contemporary Resort was built!
