It’s hard to believe, but we are just weeks away from Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, taking to the high seas on its maiden voyage. The Disney Wish will join Disney Cruise Line’s other 4 gorgeous ships — the Disney Dream, the Disney Magic, the Disney Fantasy, and the Disney Wonder. The Disney Wish will feature a ton of unique, one-of-a-kind experiences that Guests have not seen onboard a Disney cruise ship before. There will be a Frozen-themed dining experience, an Incredibles-themed obstacle course, and Disney’s first-ever “attraction at sea”, the AquaMouse.
While the Disney Wish will not set sail with Captain Minnie Mouse until July 14, Disney will be hosting a livestream event to debut the ship on June 29. Disney Parks Blog shared more information about the exciting event:
Live from Port Canaveral, Florida, this unforgettable celebration of enchantment will showcase the world’s first look inside our innovative new ship and will feature special guests, spectacular musical performances and characters from your favorite Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars adventures.
You definitely won’t want to miss this incredible event that includes an exclusive look inside some of the ship’s most highly anticipated features — like AquaMouse, the first-ever Disney attraction at sea; first-of-their-kind dining adventures themed to “Frozen” and Marvel; an immersive lounge set in the Star Wars galaxy; and a real-life wonderland for kids at Disney’s Oceaneer Club — plus special appearances from our crew members on board the Disney Wish.

The Disney Wish will have its home port in Port Canaveral, Florida, and will be sailing down to the Bahamas throughout the year. Disney Cruise Line will be offering 3 and 4-night Bahamian trips on the Wish that will include a stop at Disney’s very own private island — Castaway Cay. Guests who take certain voyages during the fall will be able to experience Halloween on the High Seas, and Guests who sail during the holiday season will be able to enjoy Very Merrytime Cruises.
The debut of the Disney Wish and its christening will take place on June 29 at 11 a.m. ET. There are a ton of ways to watch the christening from wherever you are! Disney will be streaming the event on Disney Parks Blog, as well as on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and TikTok.
