The Disney Wish horn is making sweet music at sea. Can you guess which iconic Disney melodies made the cut?

We’re only a few weeks out from the Disney Wish’s maiden voyage. Now, Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship has just hit another major milestone (a high note?)

Keep reading to learn more about the historic moment the Disney Wish tested its horn for the first time. You might recognize some of these tunes …

A Historic Moment For The Disney Wish

The Disney Wish uses a melodic air horn. This turns any day out on the high seas into a Disney concert! Last week, the ship tested out its horn for the very first time on the open water. 

As it was leaving the German port city of Bremerhaven, onlookers got a sneak preview of the Disney Wish horn in action (and a mini-concert at sea). Later, a YouTube user in Eemshaven in the Netherlands got to hear a sample of the musical horn. That song sounds pretty familiar …

Name That Disney Tune (At Sea!) 

Posted to a YouTube channel called, Eemshavenonline, this short video captures the Disney Wish horn for the very first time. Hmmm … can you name the tune in this soundbite?

Did you take a guess? Keep scrolling to see the answer. 

Really. This is your last chance to name that tune before we spoil the answer …

Okay, here we go …

If you guessed, “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” you’re right! Gee. There really is no way to escape that Encanto earworm, huh? Even at sea, you’re guaranteed to get that tune stuck in your head for days. 

If you’re ready to take a break from Bruno, don’t worry. That’s not the only Disney song that the Disney Wish horn can play. 

WATCH: A Mini-Concert At Sea

The Disney Wish has a bunch of Disney songs in its repertoire including classics and contemporary soon-to-be classic tunes. At the time of publishing, these are the songs that are accounted for (according to first-hand accounts from onlookers):

  • “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes”
  • “Be Our Guest”
  • “Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee (An Actor’s Life For Me)”
  • “It’s a Small World”
  • “Yo, Ho! (A Pirate’s Life For Me)”
  • “We Don’t Talk About Bruno”

Thanks to a YouTube channel named, Unimedien ship horns, you can listen to the Disney Wish horn’s debut performance in the video above.
