When The Walt Disney Company confirmed details about the rotational dining experiences onboard its upcoming cruise ship, the Disney Wish, there was one announcement that excited Marvel fans, in particular.
The Worlds of Marvel restaurant will be the first-ever Marvel Cinematic Universe dining experience on a Disney Cruise Line vessel and — outside of Disneyland Resort’s Avengers Campus — the only current Marvel-themed dining experience at any Disney property.
Today, during the Destination D23 livestream, Disney Imagineers gave new insight into what Guests can expect when they enter the Avengers’ newest laboratory.
They shared that the entire experience is so unique, “It’s never been done before” anywhere, and noted:
“Our story begins with the idea that the Avengers have built this state-of-the-art mobile lab onboard our ship where they get to showcase Stark tech and Wakanda tech.”
Disney officials also provided additional details about the “cutting edge” Quantum Core tech that will be used as Guests assist Ant-Man (Paul Rudd in the MCU), the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly in the MCU), Captain Marvel (Brie Larson in the MCU), and more fan-favorite Avengers as they dine:
“The Avengers have trusted us with this new technology they’ve put right at our tables for us to actually be able to interact with them. It’s our opportunity to become Heroes. We need to be quick and hit those Quantum Cores to help them and save the day.”
Disney also gave viewers their first-ever look at the actual Quantum Core reactors [above] — prior to today, only concept art had been revealed.
This is an exciting update for Marvel fans, who got their first glimpse of how this new technology will allow them to shrink and grow objects, including Iron Man’s arc reactor and Captain America’s shield.
Previously, Disney Parks Blog described the Quantum Encounter as:
“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.
More on the Future of Disney Cruise Line
Although DCL’s remaining 2021 cruises may still look quite different due to the ongoing pandemic, Disney is planning a huge return to sailing in 2022. The fleet’s first Triton Class cruise ship, the aforementioned Disney Wish, will take her maiden voyage in June 2022.
This all-new luxury liner features a first-of-its-kind Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge, a Toy Story splash pad just for kids, and an incredible Frozen dining experience for the whole family! All this, of course, in addition to Worlds of Marvel and numerous other brand-new DCL additions.
The Wish will be the fifth ship in the DCL fleet, joining the Disney Dream, the Disney Fantasy, the Disney Magic, and the Disney Wonder. She will be based in Port Canaveral.
