There will be plenty for kids to do at sea when the Disney Wish sets sail on its inaugural season in June 2022!
This brand new ship will be filled with fun and exciting adventures to immerse kids in the worlds of heroes, princesses, storytellers, and more. Let’s take a quick peek at some of what is in store for children of all ages aboard the Disney Wish!
Disney’s Oceaneer Club
Children ages 3 through 12 can jump into some of their favorite Disney movies and stories in the newly reimagined Disney’s Oceaneer Club. With more themed spaces, interactive games, and endless entertainment, this club will offer a little something for everyone, including the opportunity to interact and play with some of their favorite Disney characters.
The most exciting sounding addition, even to this adult, is the entrance! Parents will be able to check their children into the Oceaneer Club in the Grand Hall on deck 3. Kids can then slide safely and securely down to the club on deck 2 via a secret entrance that leads straight to the club’s central hub.
Is your kid looking to live the life of their favorite Disney Princess or Frozen Queen? Step inside Fairytale Hall, where guests can enjoy a series of three activity rooms themed to some classic Disney Princesses! Rapunzel’s Art Studio offers the opportunity to express creativity through various arts and crafts projects like floating lanterns and paintings. Curl up with a book in Belle’s Library where children can read or act out some of the most classic Disney stories, brought to life with the help of an enchanted painting above the room’s fireplace. Anna, Elsa, and Olaf bring a little snow to sea in the “Frozen Fun” room where kids can enjoy snowball fights, and other adventures.
Marvel Super Hero Academy
Join other young recruits as you train like an Avenger in the high-tech Marvel Super Hero Academy. Kids can enjoy choosing their own superhero suit, interacting with Spider-Man, Black Panther, and more, as well as embarking on virtual interactive missions as part of “Avengers: Mission Training”.
Walt Disney Imagineering Lab
In this first-of-its-kind opportunity aboard the Disney Wish, kids can live the life and discover the secrets of Walt Disney Imagineering! Dive into the minds of the Disney Imagineers behind Disney’s theme parks, resorts, and cruise ships through hands-on activities and experiments. At the Ride Studio, kids can even design and then climb into their own virtual roller coaster!
It’s A Small World Nursery
Younger cruisers ages 6 months to 3 years can continue to enjoy “it’s a small world” Nursery, a babysitting service offered aboard all Disney Cruise ships. Explore the worlds of Disney, Pixar, and Marvel in various interactive rooms throughout this space.
Edge and Vibe
Disney Cruise Line’s popular teen and tweens clubs, Edge and Vibe are back aboard the Disney Wish!
Edge, open to ages 11 to 14, offers the opportunity to hang out in a chic New York City loft-inspired area with plenty of fun selfie walls and relaxation areas. This club’s entrance will be located on deck 5, hidden behind a framed piece of art that brings world-famous paintings, and pop art together with a Disney twist.
Teens ages 14 to 17 can hang out with their cruise friends in Vibe, which draws inspiration from a Parisian artists’ loft. Watch a movie, play games, and hang out in this stylish space with an electric retro twist — floor-to-ceiling windows cap off this club with breathtaking views of the ocean.
More new spaces and experiences for children aboard the Disney Wish will be revealed at a later date.
The Disney Wish will sail in Summer 2022 for its inaugural season of three- and four-night cruises to Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, from its new homeport of Port Canaveral, Florida!!!
Bookings open to the general public on May 27, 2021, for Disney Wish cruises departing June – September 2022. Castaway Club members, DVC Members, ABD Insiders, and other select Disney guests will have early booking opportunities on May 17th.
