These Swoon-Worthy Hangouts Are Tweens’ and Teens’ Disney Wish Come True

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Evily Giannopoulos Peros

Yesterday, I shared new details about the character-filled fun in store for young children aboard the Disney Wish, and today I want to give you a closer look at what our newest ship has on deck for the coolest cruisers on the high seas – tweens and teens!

Older kids ages 11 to 17 will chill and play in their own way aboard the Disney Wish, with trendy hangouts and counselor-led programming created just for them. Featuring all-new looks that combine sophisticated design with youthful Disney touches, these clubs will be bursting with creative design details, comfortable lounge space and high-tech entertainment. Let’s take a look …

At Edge, tweens ages 11 to 14 will have fun, make friends
and play games in a bright, colorful hangout inspired by a chic New York City
loft. The club will include cozy furnishings, comfortable niches for solo
gaming and movie watching, and a soda bar.

One of my favorite details is the indoor solarium area,
which will feature a sunny overhead skylight effect, carpet patterned with
fresh grass and daisies, a back wall mural of a bright blue sky, and games
inspired by a colorful outdoor city park.

Throughout Edge, graphic art displays known as “photo walls”
will provide ample opportunities for tweens to capture cool, shareable vacation
pics that will surely be the envy of their friends back home.

At Vibe, teens ages 14 to 17 will meet new friends, watch
movies, play games and participate in entertaining activities created just for
them. Inspired by a Parisian artists’ loft, this stylish space will feature
classic architectural elements like regal French columns and paneled walls
covered with whimsical pop art murals and colorful graffiti, as well as a traditional
French Morris column plastered with Disney-inspired travel posters.

The décor will feature an electric retro twist, with vibrant
neon signs and funky pop art throughout, accentuated by a larger-than-life,
brightly painted Mickey Mouse statue. Combine all of that with floor-to-ceiling
windows overlooking the ocean, and every angle in Vibe will offer a
selfie-worthy backdrop for the trendiest teens on the high seas.

The Hideaway

For the first time on a Disney ship, the Disney Wish will
feature a third retreat for tweens and teens: The Hideaway. This hip new
hangout will offer older kids and young adults another place to relax, sip a
smoothie, listen to music and more in a posh setting complete with a dance
floor and DJ booth – perfect for karaoke contests and dance competitions.

The Hideaway will be adorned in a vibrant color palette,
retro-inspired design details, a stylized “Hiya, pal” mural and disco ball
lights. Adjacent to Vibe, this flexible venue can be opened to the teen club,
closed off for tween activities and even reserved especially for guests ages 18
to 20.

No matter where they choose to be, tweens and teens are in
for a whole “llama” fun during customized, counselor-led programming designed
to engage their unique interests, such as a hilarious new competition themed to
the fan-favorite Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film, “The Emperor’s New Groove.”
(Boom, baby!) And the fun doesn’t stop there: They’ll also enjoy dedicated
activities throughout the ship during special events hosted in Hero Zone, Luna
and more.

We’re not done unveiling the Disney Wish yet … There are even more surprises and reveals on the horizon. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the next update!
