Get ready to set sail with Captain Minnie Mouse in a new Disney Cruise Line. Disney has just announced some amazing news for the upcoming Disney Cruise Line ship, the Disney Wish! This latest addition to the DCL fleet will feature all-new ways for children of all ages to play at the newly reimagined Oceaneer Club inside the Disney Wish!
Secret Door For Kids!
The Disney Cruise Line is known for operating four popular ships across the globe, The Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, and the Disney Fantasy. Today, Disney Parks has finally released an inside look at the new cruise line coming next year, The Disney Wish! This new Disney Wish cruise ship will feature a brand NEW Oceaneer Club completely reimagined for children ages 3 to 12. As Sachi Handke, a Disney Imagineer began to reveal details about the new kids-only space during today’s Disney Wish sneak peek, host, Ashley Long asked:
“Okay so this is really cool, and something we haven’t seen on a Disney Cruise ship before. Is this a secret entrance to the club?”
Handke confirmed that children will be able to slide down an enormous slide to the Oceaneer Club right from Disney Wish‘s Grand Hall — and that a special entrance “called a door” will be available for parents.
Disney Wish press release announced,
Children ages 3 to 12 will enter the captivating worlds of favorite Disney stories in the reimagined Disney’s Oceaneer Club, a real-life wonderland of immersive spaces specially designed to unlock their imaginations. Aboard the Disney Wish, this club will feature more themed spaces than ever, each filled with endless
entertainment – from storytelling, arts and crafts, and dress-up to toys, games and watching Disney movies. It will also offer more opportunities for kids to have fun with their favorite Disney friends during an exclusive line-up of interactive games and programs where characters don’t just stop by – they stay to play. With the club located on deck 2, parents will be able to check in their children in the Grand Hall on deck 3 and then send them “down the rabbit hole” on a twisting slide that lands directly and securely into the central hub. Decorated with black-and-white sketches of Disney and Pixar characters, the hub will feature a stage and its own slate of special shows, activities and character appearances
A favorite of Disney Cruise Line passengers, Marvel Super Hero Academy will also be on the Wish including Spider-Man, Black Panther, Ant-Man, and the Wasp!
Disney’s Wish press released states,
Marvel Super Hero Academy is a high-tech Avengers headquarters where young“recruits” will train tobe the next generation of Super Heroes with the help of their own real-life heroes, like Spider-Man, Black Panther, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Kids will begin by choosing a super hero suit from a selection of power sets based on Marvel heroes like Iron Man and Captain Marvel, and watching their choices become nanotech forms around mannequins in real-time. Then it will be time for “Avengers: Mission Training,” a gesture-based technology game where they put their new suits and skills to the test as they virtually battle bad guys
Would you like to read a story with a classic Disney character? Another amazing area will feature the Fairy Tale Hall. Children will be able to find themselves listening to stories in Belle’s Library, Rapunzel’s Art Studio and Anna and Elsa’s Sommerhaus inside this Disney Cruise.
Fairytale Hall is a royal trio of activity rooms where kids will join some of their favorite Disney Princesses and Frozen Queens as they let their creativity shine at Rapunzel’s Art Studio, read and act out stories at Belle’s Library, and test newfound icy powers at Anna and Elsa’s Sommerhus.
Children will also become their own Imagineers at the Interactive Lab. They will even be able to design their very own rollercoaster and be able to test it out and ride it inside the Disney Wish!
Walt Disney Imagineering Lab is a first-of-its-kind opportunity for kids to discover the secrets of world-renowned Disney Imagineers — the creative masterminds behind Disney theme parks, resorts and cruise ships — with hands-on activities and inventive experiments. Sorcerer Mickey, the ambassador of Walt Disney Imagineering, may even stop by to lend a wand to the newly minted magic
makers. One of the most exciting things Imagineers get to do is design roller coasters. At the Ride Studio, kids will create a coaster along the lines of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Space Mountain or Matterhorn Bobsleds – and then climb into a capsule where they will virtually ride their imaginative masterpiece.
More new spaces and experiences at Disney’s Oceaneer Club will be revealed at a later date.
Disney Wish also announced that children and parents alike will be able to experience Disney’s first attraction ride, AquaMouse water ride! The Disney Wish will set sail on June 9 to the Bahamas, with ports of call at both Nassau and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. Check Inside the Magic for more maiden voyage news and updates.
