The Disney Wish will set sail for the first time in July, but we already know what fun will await us thanks to the recent release of the full Disney Wish entertainment roster. Here are the top things to do on the Disney Wish when it sets sail.
It’s been a long time coming, but the maiden voyage of the Disney Wish is getting closer and closer (though not without some hiccups). Learn all about the entertainment you can expect when you set sail on the new ship later this summer.
Things to Do on the Disney Wish
Sure, the Disney Wish offers plenty of opportunities for fun at the pool and relaxation at the (outdoor!) spa, and there’s always adults-only drinks and dining. Plus, kids have their own private clubs (no adults allowed!). But when it comes to pure family fun that is exclusive to the Wish, here are the top experiences we have our eye on:
Inside Out: Joyful Sweets
What’s better than expressing your emotions a la Disney’s Inside Out? How about enjoying some tasty desserts while sharing your feelings of joy with your friends and family?
Inside Out: Joyful Sweets is a decadent dessert destination that will offer homemade gelato, ice cream, candy, and novelty treats. The shop is created to resemble the control center inside Riley’s mind from the movie, and you’ll see sculpted figures of the characters from the movie, including Joy and Sadness.
In total, the shop will sell almost 40 flavors of ice cream and gelato, including lemon for Joy, blueberry for Sadness, pistachio for Disgust (ha!), red velvet for Anger, and bubble gum for Fear. Other themed desserts include chocolate Memory Orbs with sweet candy inside.
Olaf’s Royal Picnic
If you’ve always dreamed of dining with Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and Olaf, head to Olaf’s Royal Picnic aboard the Disney Wish. The picnic-themed meal is served by Arendelle Castle waitstaff under the direction of Baroness Dagmar Birgir, Queen Anna’s lady-in-waiting.
In addition to delicious food and a fun character dining experience, kids will get to take home memorabilia including a plush troll, themed picnic blanket, and Nordic-style mandolin that they’ll play along with Kristoff as he sings Reindeer(s) Are Better Than People. In addition, you’ll hear live performances of your favorite songs from Frozen, including Let It Go, Fixer Upper, and In Summer.
If you want more Frozen fun on the Wish, you’ll get your fill when you dine at Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure.
Part gathering space, part theater, the Grand Hall will be the place to be on the Disney Wish.
The first time you enter the Grand Hall, you’ll get a royal greeting, and each child will receive a wishing wand when they board the boat that they can use to make their first wish in the Grand Hall.
During the cruise, you can meet and greet your favorite Disney Princesses in the Grand Hall, and the space will also host a game show called Who’s Behind the Curtain? where you’ll answer questions to reveal the identity of secret Disney characters, who will then come out from behind the curtain to greet guests.
On the final night of the cruise, you’ll head back to the Grand Hall to see an incredible farewell show with your favorite characters, special effects, and memorable performances. It’ll be the perfect ending to your most magical cruise experience ever.
If live shows are your thing, you’ll be spending a lot of time at Luna. This new entertainment hub includes a two-story LCD screen wall, as well as a stage and a bar. There will be live shows, including the following:
- Villains Game Night: Answer Disney trivia questions as your most hated Disney Villains jeer and boo. Expect to see cameos from Cruella de Vil, Gaston, Hades, and Maleficent.
- Disney Songbook: This one’s for karaoke fans! Sing along to your favorite Disney songs in front of a live camera crew, who will project your performance onto the big screen.
- Uncharted Adventure: The grand finale of Disney Uncharted Adventure will take place here at Luna.
Walt Disney Theatre
Take in a reimagined adaptation of “Disney’s Aladdin – A musical Spectacular” in the stunning Walt Disney Theatre.
Want to show off your physical strength and athletic skill? Check out Hero Zone, which is a sports arena that includes the following attractions:
- The Incredi-Games: Test your strength and skill alongside your family members on this fun obstacle course themed after The Incredibles.
- Jack-Jack’s Diaper Dash: Even the youngest members of your family can get in on the fun! This 20-foot track allows tots to race to the finish while their family members cheer them on.
Disney Wish will set sail on its maiden voyage on July 14.
