New Disney Wish Details and Behind-the-Scenes Video Released!

Ready for a bit of Disney Wish magic? The team behind the design of Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, is revealing some of the inspiration that’s leading them as they craft the new vessel, and it has one overarching theme: enchantment.

From the pixie dust-encrusted columns in the ship’s Grand Hall (lobby), to the space’s chandelier, which DCL describes as being “the manifestation of wishes come true – a swirling spiral of crystal gems punctuated with light, its crown jewel a wondrous wishing star,” enchantment will surround guests as they sail along the sea.

Among the details revealed today is that Marvel, Star Wars, Disney and Pixar stories will be told on the new ship. As previously announced, a bronze statute of Cinderella will grace the Grand Hall, and the storytelling will continue to the aft of the ship as Rapunzel hangs off the back.

If you’d like a closer look into the inspiration behind the Disney Wish (including what the nickname of the ship was before it was officially named Wish), be sure to check out the first installment in the Designing the Disney Wish series below.

Don’t forget that Disney Cruise Line has a big announcement regarding the Disney Wish planned on Thursday, April 29th! Click here for the details.

    3 and 4 night cruises are so expensive and if you are a platinum cruiser, hardly worth the money. If air fare is needed also, I would want some new and exciting ports of call. Also the return of twin beds would be nice. Not everyone wants to sleep with a friend. I will do the Wish once but if 3 and 4 nights, only once.

      I’ve been waiting two years and now the ship is close to being here. So exciting but still wish for longer cruise.

    Beautiful! Such detail. I bet it is amazing in person! Have never been on a cruise but this is the one I would want. Mickey Mouse was so sweet to my grandson at Disney World when we visited when he had leukemia at 2 years old. Now 8 and doing wonderful!

    I really hope they realize how much of a barrier to connection it is to have people in their videos wearing masks. The ship looks great but the fact that the one lady was speaking with half of her face covered was really really throwing me off.

      Tom,
      I agree. I felt that was off myself. I kept waiting to see her with the mask off.

    Disappointed. Do not want to sit through two interactive dinners. How well will this age? I don’t want Elsa to sing to me at dinner now, let alone in 20 years. Seems like this is a ship built for kids. Will be sticking with the four previous ships for cruising.

    Me too. I enjoy dinner talking to my table mates. Tiana’s place is loud enough. Ooh well I will go anyway.
