Disney Cruise Line announced that Captain Minnie will be featured on the bow of its new ship, the Disney Wish!
On Thursday, April 8, Disney shared the exciting news about our girl Minnie Mouse. Oh, excuse us, we of course mean Captain Minnie.
This is the first time Captain Minnie will come to life through “whimsical artwork” on a Disney Cruise Line ship.
Keep reading for all of the details!
If you didn’t know, Captain Minnie first debuted in April 2019 on the Disney Cruise Line.
She was part of a collection of initiatives to help inspire the next generation of female leaders in the cruise industry.
And, now that she will be featured on the bow of the Disney Wish, Disney hopes “to continue inspiring girls and young women around the globe.”
According to Disney, in addition to Captain Minnie’s face, the artwork features “an intricate scrollwork pattern reminiscent of the classic ocean liners of the 1930s.” It looks elegant and powerful, just like Captain Minnie.
If that isn’t enough, the Disney Wish also “reached a significant construction milestone” through the traditional keel laying ceremony.
As detailed on the Disney Parks Blog, “During a ship’s construction, when the first block, or section of a ship, is lowered into the building dock, a newly minted coin is placed under the keel for good fortune.”
Of course, the coin for the Disney Wish features Captain Minnie!
