All hands on deck, Disney fans, because this is not a drill! The Walt Disney Company just released major insight into dozens of new Guest attractions coming in 2024, but unfortunately, it’s not so straightforward. Someone call Captain Jack Sparrow because Disney Cruise Line has orchestrated a pirate adventure for us in the form of the Disney Treasure map.
Disney has been vocal about the newest addition to its fleet of magical cruise line ships the Disney Treasure, but Captain Minnie Mouse has been very hush-hush on the details. But now, in true hidden treasure fashion, Disney Cruise Line created a literal treasure map for Guests to decode, with icons and clues indicating what offerings will be found aboard the brand-new ship!
Let’s get into it.
Starting from the top left corner, the first thing that catches the eye is Olaf from Frozen (2013) among icy mountains and presumably the fjords of Arendelle. Perhaps there will be a new Frozen offering or another version of Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure, like aboard the Disney Wish. Below, we see some wandering porgs, suggesting Star Wars will have a presence on the Treasure!
Seeing Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde sharing some dessert to the right, fans guess that an ice cream shop themed after Zootopia (2016) is in the works! Maybe next to a children’s pool? What could that giant rock amphitheater suggest? Maybe The Lion King stage show?
Along the bottom left of the treasure map, we have images from The Incredibles (2004), Monsters, Inc. (2001), a Captain America Shield, and what looks like a whole Beauty and the Beast (1991) section! Some classic food establishments fashioned after Mickey Mouse’s friends appear, too. Do you see the little pond featuring Cri-Kee from Mulan (1998)? I’d book a Disney vacation just to find out what that is!
Continuing along the top right – does anyone else see the EPCOT ball from Walt Disney World? It’s not like they can put a mini version of Spaceship Earth on a cruise ship…right? Note the crazy teapot and cups from Alice in Wonderland (1951). It could be a great place for tea and coffee on board. An X-wing starfighter confirms there will be even more (probably new) Star Wars offerings. Looks like there’s a Moana (2016) section – here’s hoping there’s a Hei Hei meet and greet.
We already know that Peter Pan (1953) is a major adventure inspiration for the Disney Treasure, as Peter and Captain Hook were announced to be the icon characters painted onto the ship’s stern. It looks like Mermaid Lagoon, accompanied by the Jolly Roger, could make a great pool area theme. But did you see Bagheera from The Jungle Book (1967)? Fans are excited to see what that theming may lead to!
In the bottom right, fans also spotted 20000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), suggestions of a dino Toy Story water area, Aladdin’s Cave of Wonders, a pretty large section dedicated to The Lion King (1992), and the colorful land from Coco (2017). Live Coco stage show anyone?? No one can ignore the centerpiece of Jasmine’s castle from Agrubah, as she and Aladdin take a magic carpet ride over fireworks, nodding to the gold statue of the couple in the atrium of the ship.
Do you see something we didn’t? Which offering are you most excited about? Disney will drop more info on the new ship this Wednesday, Aug 30th at 11 am!
