Our First Look at the Magical New Design for Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Wish
Just ahead of the virtual grand debut of the Disney Wish on Thursday, April 29 with “Once Upon a Disney Wish,” Disney Cruise Line has unveiled at the magical new design concept for their fifth ship. And, as you will see, the design focuses on a motif we all as Disney fans are accustomed to – Enchantment!
Enchantment is around every corner in the world of Disney and it brings our favorite movies to a rich and vibrant life. Walt Disney Imagineers have brought enchantment to the all-new Disney Wish on a whole new lever by infusing our favorite Disney stories into the cruise experience. Thus, providing a new look that has never been seen at sea!
Guests sailing aboard Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Wish will see motif all around the ship inspired by our favorite Disney classics, Pixar favorites, Marvel, as well as Star Wars! Take a look at the video below – the first in Disney Cruise Line’s “Designing the Disney Wish” series – to get a sneak peek at the enchantment coming to the Disney Wish. And, then keep on reading for even more exciting details:
Keeping in line with Disney Cruise Line tradition, the Wish will incorporate an elegant, classical exterior design that is a tribute to the golden age of cruising with adding a touch of Disney with the emblematic colors of Mickey Mouse.
Another Disney Cruise Line classic design element is the adornment of two-character art pieces on the hull of each ship. On the Disney Wish, Guests will notice the elegant filigree artwork on the bow, that is a throwback to classic ocean liners from the 1930s, with none other than Captain Minnie – for the first time ever – reflecting the fleet’s future.
On the stern, a custom sculpture of the always optimistic and adventurous Rapunzel will be added. She will be suspended by her golden locks and look just like she is decorating the exterior of the ship with the help of her trusty sidekick, Pascal.
Walt Disney Imagineers have also added a whimsical curvature design to the deck along both sides of the ship to give the feeling of magical and visual movement inside and out.
Embodying the truest sense of the enchantment motif will be the Grand Hall aboard the Disney Wish. It will be bright and airy with an elegant vibe that welcome Guests as they board the ship. The fairytale castle-themed design features a touch of Gothic, Baroque, and French Rococo influences that will give life to columns, carvings, trimmings, and adornments.
Guests aboard the Disney Wish will come to thing of the Grand Hall as a castle on the seas with an enchanted realm of glittering trails of pixie dust climbg majestic three-story columns while spilling across the ceiling and animate the sparkling chandelier above with a burst of magic. The chandelier itself is a manifestation of wishes come true – a swirling spiral of crystal gems punctuated with light, its crown jewel a wondrous wishing star.
When you take a look at the base of grand staircase, under the glow of the wishing star, you will spot the personification of a wish fulfillment herself, Cinderella. Cinderella is the pillar of The Walt Disney Company’s legacy and the epitome of the magic transforming wishes into dreams and dreams into reality.
The dazzling bronze statue of this iconic princess is just one of several tributes to her story in the Grand Hall. Other nods to Cinderella and her sense of enchantment in the Grand Hall include railings that glisten with elegant stained glass in her signature colors, rich carpeting embellished with icons from the movie, and sophisticated nods to her carriage and glass slipper in the delicate metalwork and light fixtures.
When you walk through the Grand Hall on the Disney Wish, Guests will see it as a gateway to all the enchantment and magic that is in store onboard. Think everything from fairytale worlds, heroic challenges, epicurean indulgences, thrilling adventures, galactic encounters, peaceful escapes and so much more!
