5 Areas for kids in Oceaneer Club - Star Wars Cargo Bay, Fairytale Hall, Walt Disney Imagineering Lab, Marvel Super Hero Academy, Mickey and Minnie Captain's Deck. Takes up pretty much all of deck 2. The older kids also still have their spaces in other areas on the ship like with Edge, Vibe, and The Hideaway. Of course the littlest sailors also have the It's A Small World Nursey.
Grand Hall - 3 deck high glittering castle on the seas. Instead of having a mid-ship elevator Disney uses this area as an immersive entertainment venue.
7 pools - one that is an adult only infinity pool at the very back of the ship.
2 Movie Theaters that will run both brand new movies along with some old favorites too.
Cinderella is the bronze statue that is the featured in the Grand Hall.
Rapunzel is the character hanging out on the very back of the ship - she is using her long hair to hold her up while she paints the ship's name on.
I really think the Disney Wish is a gorgeous ship with a more upgraded feel than the other 4 Disney ships. It feels more like a floating castle than a nostalgic cruise liner. Wish is only slightly bigger than Dream and Fantasy but if you ask me it actually didn't feel bigger. I think having just the 2 elevator areas made it feel easier to navigate and not as long of a ship as Dream and Fantasy.
Disney continues the rotational dining for dinner. Even though on other cruise lines I will opt for the anytime dining I do actually really enjoy the set time and assigned dining room rotation on Disney. I did try all of the dining areas except the adult dining and will talk about that in next week's trip report.
I know some people might not like the smaller pools but I think breaking up the pools and spreading them out a bit is a good idea. It also helps that Disney has ways to cove up most of the pools to use as deck space when needed too.
The staterooms on Wish are about the same size as on the other ships but they have a different feel to them. They are lighter and brighter and feel a bit fancier if you ask me. The different art work based on your deck is also a really cool touch. Even the lighting and the carpet in each hallway matches the theme of that deck. The little metal critter on the wall by your stateroom will also match theme so it isn't like the other ships where they are different based on the side of the ship your on. There are some nice display cases in the Grand Hall that show all the different materials that were used throughout the ship which I found very interesting to see.
The spa and fitness area are bigger along with 2 separate beauty salons called Untangled Salon and Hook's Barbery. I of course loved the Rainforest room which is more like a Rainforest area on Wish since is has an inside and large outside deck area. More on that next week though.
I really enjoyed my cruise on Disney Wish and really liked all of the changes Disney did to make Wish have a whole new feel from the other ships.
