Onboard the Disney Wish: A Fairytale-Inspired Castle Floating on the Seas

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Krissy Nocerino

Welcome aboard, my friends!

We are absolutely thrilled that the Disney Wish has finally made its grand debut. In honor of the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet, we’re starting a brand-new series of posts right here on the Disney Parks Blog that will give you an exclusive look at our innovative and imaginative ship.

And what better place to start than in the Grand Hall, the enchanting centerpiece of the ship?

This fairytale-inspired space is a tribute to the story of
Cinderella and includes a beautiful bronze statue of the beloved princess,
stained-glass embellishments in her signature colors and icons from the Disney
film classic that you can discover in unexpected places including the
carpeting, metalwork and light fixtures.


Chandelier on Disney Wish

So, let’s talk about the literal star of the show — the chandelier! This glittering icon was designed with magical enchantment in mind and is actually a dazzling wishing star that comes to life in wondrous ways throughout the voyage … especially when you step inside for the first time. Every child coming aboard will receive their own wishing wand, which they will use to make the “First Wish” of their vacation during a special boarding celebration.

This reimagined atrium will even evolve in a completely new way
during every sailing, transforming from a classic fairytale gathering space
into a thrilling theater through the magic of built-in special effects. The
Grand Hall features the first-ever atrium stage on a Disney ship, and hosts dedicated
shows and interactive entertainment that puts guests front and center as they
play a special role in the magic.

From the grand staircase and the starry, shimmering chandelier
above … to the ornate stage, dedicated shows and interactive entertainment …
this new venue is the perfect space for wishes to come true. Close your eyes
and wish away!

Be sure to stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog over the next few
weeks as we continue to take you onboard!
