Discover the staterooms, dining options, entertainment, and more that awaits cruise goers sailing on the Disney Wish.
Planning to set sail on a cruise aboard the Disney Wish? First announced back in 2016, this incredible ship set sail for the first time in 2022 and has been welcoming guests aboard ever since. We’re breaking down everything you need to know about this Disney Cruise Line ship, from the staterooms available to different dining options to entertainment onboard.
About the Disney Wish
First announced back in 2016, the Disney Wish was officially announced in 2019. It first set sail on its maiden voyage from Port Canaveral on July 14, 2022, cruising through the Caribbean with stops in Nassau and Castaway Cay.
As the first Triton class ship added to the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the Disney Wish is a truly special vessel. The ship weighs 140,000 tons and offers enough room for 2,500 guests on board. That’s larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy – but the Disney Wish features the same number of staterooms, offering the perk of increased space for guests.
On the stern of the Disney Wish, you’ll find Rapunzel and Pascal. But there’s another special character at the heart of this particular Disney Cruise Line ship: Minnie Mouse. During the keel laying ceremony for the Wish, it was revealed that Captain Minnie was on the specially-minted coin made for the keel and the ship’s bow artwork. Captain Minnie is also at the helm for each sailing (so keep an eye out for her while you’re on board!).
Inside the Grand Hall, where you’ll be welcomed aboard the Disney Wish, you’ll find a life-size Cinderella statue waiting. As you step further into the ship, you’ll find there are 14 decks to explore, with everything from staterooms to restaurants to entertainment venues to pools and recreation areas spread across them.

Where Does the Disney Wish Sail?
The Disney Wish is based out of Port Canaveral, the home port of Disney Cruise Line. From Port Canaveral, the Wish embarks on three- and four-night sailings to the Bahamas. Every sailing includes a stop at Castaway Cay, Disney’s private island available exclusively for those who sail on Disney Cruise Line ships.
Staterooms on the Disney Wish
There are 1,250 staterooms aboard the Disney Wish – and there’s a whopping 11 different types of staterooms to choose from. You’ll have plenty of options, whether you’re looking for a luxurious two-story stateroom or a smaller interior stateroom that’s solely for resting at night. Best of all, there’s a unique perk to the Wish’s staterooms: the staterooms are more spacious than those on other Disney Cruise Line ships.
Additionally, the Wish offers a wide selection of staterooms with an ocean view; in fact, most rooms on board offer a view of the sparkling sea! Here’s a look at the different types of staterooms you can book.
On the Disney Wish, you’ll have one inside stateroom option: a Standard Inside Stateroom. There is no exterior or ocean view to be found in these rooms, but they do sleep up to four adults in total.
When you opt for an oceanview stateroom, you’ll enjoy similar room sizing and layouts as inside staterooms. Each Oceanview Stateroom includes a large porthole that looks out onto the open ocean as you cruise. You can opt for either a Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom or a Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom, depending on how many people you’re traveling with. While a Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom sleeps up to four adults, a Family version can sleep up to five.
If you’re hoping to spend some time taking in the ocean air on a private deck of your own, a stateroom with a verandah is the perfect choice. Verandah staterooms include a private verandah just for your cruising party. You have two choices on the Disney Wish: either a Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah or a Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah. These staterooms sleep four and five adults, respectively.
If you’re looking for a stateroom that offers an elevated cruise experience, concierge-level rooms offer exactly that. On Disney Cruise Line ships – including the Wish – concierge staterooms are similar to club-level rooms at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. These rooms come with a higher price, but you’ll get more personalized service, special access to a lounge, and other perks not available with a typical stateroom.
When it comes to accommodations and options, there are six types of concierge staterooms:
- Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah
- Concierge Family Oceanview Stateroom
- Concierge 1-Bedroom Suite with Verandah (or Extended Verandah)
- Concierge 1-Story Royal Suite with Verandah
- Concierge 2-Story Royal Suite with Verandah
- Concierge Wish Tower Suite
Each one of these concierge stateroom types offers a different layout and room for a variety of group or family sizes. Three of them – the Concierge Family Oceanview, Concierge Family Oceanview with Verandah, and Concierge 1-Bedroom Suite – can sleep up to five adults. Concierge 1-Story Royal Suites and Concierge 2-Story Royal Suites can sleep up to six, while the Concierge Wish Tower Suite has enough room for eight.
Dining on the Disney Wish
You’ll find a whole host of dining options on the Wish, whether you’re searching for a midday meal, a quick snack, or something to satisfy your sweet tooth. With formal dining options as well as a buffet, room service, and grab-and-go casual choices, there’s something for every taste and every day of your sailing.
Like all other Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Wish offers rotational dining for dinners. This allows you to try each of the main restaurants onboard during your sailing, though you can choose to skip a night or two of rotational dining and secure a reservation at a different restaurant not included with your sailing instead (at an additional cost). Here’s a look at all of the dinner options on the Wish:
- Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure
- Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement (reservations required)
- Palo Steakhouse (reservations required)
- Worlds of Marvel
Beyond rotational dining – and meals other than dinner – you can also grab a bite at these casual restaurants:
- Inside Out: Joyful Sweets
- Marceline Market
- Mickey & Friends Festival of Foods
- Wheezy’s Freezies
Entertainment on the Disney Wish
The entertainment roster onboard the Wish is filled with activities for guests of all ages. From pint-sized fun for little cruisers to adult-only spaces to shows for everyone, there’s always something to do while you’re at sea. Here’s a look at the different entertainment options you can explore during your sailing:
- Olaf’s Royal Picnic, a character dining experience
- Character meet and greets inside the Grand Hall
- Visit Luna, an entertainment hub that’s home to Villains Game Night, Disney Songbook, and Uncharted Adventure
- Catch Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular inside the Walt Disney Theater
- Hero Zone, a sports arena and obstacle course with activities for all ages
