Ready to splish-splash your way to the ultimate cruise vacation? Here’s your guide to all of the Disney Wish pools and slides.

Back when the Disney Wish was first announced, we were promised: “one-of-a-kind experiences at sea.” After we attended a special media preview, we can say that the crew and Cast Members delivered BIG on that promise! (Especially if your kids are fans of Disney Fantasy’s Pixar Day at Sea.)

Ready to learn more about the Disney Wish pools and slides? We’re here to give you a deep dive into every one of them. But first, to the upper decks!

Disney Wish Pools For Families

You’ll find most of the Disney Wish pools for families located midship between the funnels on decks 11 and 12. That’s where an expansive pool district is home to six different-sized pools:

  • Mickey’s Pool (Deck 11)
  • Minnie’s Pool (Deck 11)
  • Daisy’s Pool (Deck 11)
  • Pluto’s Pool (Deck 11)
  • Donald’s Pool (Deck 12)
  • Goofy’s Pool (Deck 12)

As you can see, the family pools are tiered on different levels of the deck. Lounge chairs offer plenty of comfort while watching the kids go for a swim or basking in the warm sunshine.

Mickey’s Pool is the largest and is located right in front of Funnel Vision. That’s the jumbo LED display that plays Disney movies, TV series, live sporting events, and more. You can also get a good view of Funnel Vision from the second largest pool, Minnie’s Pool.

Daisy’s and Pluto’s pools are smaller and shallower (2 feet deep). Meanwhile, Donald’s and Goofy’s pools are the deepest at a depth of 4 feet.

On Pirate Night, the pool deck is transformed into a rock concert venue for the Pirate’s Rockin’ Parlay Party. Expect swashbuckling performances from a live pirate band and spectacular fireworks at sea.

Could this quiet, secluded pool be the Disney Wish’s best-kept secret? What this wading pool (2 feet deep) lacks in theming it more than makes up for in sweeping sea views and privacy. It’s a quiet spot that would make the perfect getaway for sensory-sensitive guests.

Toy Story Splash Zone! (Deck 12)

If the Finding Nemo-themed splash pads on the Disney Dream and Fantasy have been a hit with your kids, they’ll love the bathtub-themed Toy Story Splash Zone! on the Disney Wish. 

This water playground (inspired by the Disney and Pixar short “Partysaurus Rex”) was designed with families in mind. It’s the ideal place for toddlers and young children up to six years old to have a splish-splashing-ly good time while on board!

Notice how Toy Story‘s heroes and villains have been reimagined as huge rubber bath toys that move and spray water. The splash zone also features two toddler-sized slides, pop jets, geysers and bubblers.

Kids can also cool off in a six-inch-deep wading pool called Trixie’s Falls (complete with a fountain and waterfall). And when they really need to cool off, they can grab a fruity smoothie from Wheezy’s Freezies.

What happens when the bathtub overflows? Kids can take a ride down Slide-a-saurus Rex to find out! Keeping with the bathtub theme, this double-looping waterslide takes kids on a trip “down the drain.”

Disney Wish Pools For Adults

Should Disney brand this a swim-finity pool? If you’re looking for a little serenity at sea, head to the adults-only infinity pool, bar, and lounge on Deck 13, Aft. Oh, did we mention there’s a whirlpool spa too?

Quiet Cove is located far from the ship’s family activities making it the perfect spot for guests 18 years of age and older to unwind … without kids.

Enjoy a cocktail from the Cove Bar as you lounge poolside or try one of the international coffees from Disney Cruise Line favorite, Cove Café. The Wish’s version of the café is Moana-themed and home to “one of the finest cups of [Vietnamese Coffee]” that our creative director has ever had. (You can read our full review here.)

AquaMouse: Disney Wish’s Attraction at Sea

Behold Disney Cruise Line’s first-ever attraction at sea … AquaMouse! This isn’t your average cruise ship waterslide. The AquaMouse is “a thrilling high-speed water coaster down a flume that includes sharp turns and loud noises.”

To ride AquaMouse, there’s a minimum height requirement of 42” and guests must be 48” tall to ride their raft alone.

An impressive 760 feet of tubes wrap around the Disney Wish’s upper deck. As you zip around through the tubes, you’ll take in gorgeous ocean views.

AquaMouse offers two original animated adventures: Scuba Scramble and Swiss Meltdown. Set to a score by The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse composer, Christopher Willis, this waterslide is simply splash-tacular!

Don’t get too distracted by the 60+ water blasters, misters, and pop jets. There are Disney Easter Eggs to be found! Being the resourceful chipmunks that they are, Chip and Dale are hitchhiking their way to Castaway Cay and can be spotted in each animated story.
