Disney’s newest cruise ship, the Triton Class Disney Wish, is set to give Guests an array of incredible experiences, the likes of which have never before been seen. From the Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge that will transport adult passengers to a galaxy far, far away to the Toy Story splash zone for little ones to the Worlds of Marvel restaurant that will delight super hero fans of all ages, the Wish is truly bringing Disney magic to life.
Now, new details have been revealed about what the “epic” dining adventure at Worlds of Marvel will entail — and it’s truly incredible! The Avengers Quantum Encounter will transport Disney Cruise Line Guests to the science-filled world of Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas in the MCU), his daughter Hope Pym/the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly in the MCU), and Scott Lang/Ant-Man (Paul Rudd in the MCU).
Per the Disney Parks Blog announcement regarding the Quantum Encounter:
“Avengers: Quantum Encounter” will follow Ant-Man and The Wasp as they embark on their first public speaking engagement on behalf of the Avengers. They are hosting a special presentation of the most powerful Super Hero technologies — such as Captain America’s shield, Iron Man’s arc reactor and Ant-Man’s Pym Particles — giving the audience an up-close look at holographic models, field reports and iconic scenes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe displayed on the screens surrounding the room.
The highlight of this special event is a hands-on demonstration of the latest and greatest Pym Tech, the Quantum Core, which uses cutting-edge (and highly unstable) technology to shrink and grow targets at the push of a button. A few “misfires” will result in hilarious Ant-Man-style hijinks, but the real trouble begins when an unexpected villain shows up with a fearsome army in tow, eager to get their hands on this powerful quantum technology.

Disney Parks Blog shared additional details about the experience, including how families onboard the Wish will be able to help control the “Quantumania”, so to speak, in the restaurant at any given time:
Every table at Worlds of Marvel will feature its own Quantum Core, “a brand-new device that can cause objects to shrink and grow remotely.” During dinner, you will assist Ant-Man and The Wasp as they attempt some small-scale trials, perhaps shrinking oversized luggage for easy stateroom storage. I wonder who overpacked… those super suits probably take up a lot of space!
When enough of the Quantum Cores are activated at the same time, the entire venue will become supercharged as energy pulses through the power channels in the walls and ceiling.
This isn’t the first time the Pym family has inspired a dining experience — the new Pym Test Kitchen and Pym Tasting Lab at Disney California Adventure Park’s Avengers Campus also draw inspiration from the Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) characters.
Previously, Disney issued a press release that described Worlds of Marvel as:
This upscale-restaurant-meets-technology-showcase will up the ante on the traditional “dinner and a show” concept. Outfitted with state-of-the-art Pym Tech and decked out in signature Stark-itecture style, the venue offers surprises in all shapes and sizes, from the tiniest design “Easter eggs” to the larger-than-life story that takes place.
True to its name, Worlds of Marvel will take families on a flavorful tour of the real and fictional settings of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with dishes inspired by legendary locales like African Wakanda, Eastern European Sokovia and the Avengers’ home base of New York City.
Worlds of Marvel will feature an original storyline starring fan-favorite Avengers and an infamous foe.
The Disney Wish will officially join Disney Cruise Line’s existing fleet — the Disney Dream, the Disney Fantasy, the Disney Magic, and the Disney Wonder — when she takes her maiden voyage in June 2022.
