Wow! Disney’s latest cruise ship looks pretty neat.
We’re learning a LOT about the Disney Wish in the “Once Upon a Disney Wish” event today! We’ve learned when you can book, when the ship will sail its maiden voyage, and about offerings like new restaurants and an attraction! Now, though, we’re taking a look at the staterooms.
The Disney Wish staterooms have an all-new “enchanted” look with a luxurious design that keeps families in mind. Ninety percent of the ship’s 1,254 staterooms will offer an ocean view, and 70% of them have a spacious veranda.
There are a wide variety of room types offered including 451 connecting doors that adjoin rooms to accommodate larger families and groups. Some of the adjoining rooms will even feature adjoined balconies for a larger, shared space!
Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Director Claire Weiss said of the ship, “All of our ships offer spacious, comfortable and functional rooms that uniquely meet the needs of families. On the Disney Wish, we are elevating this approach with a new level of storytelling and artful design infused with the theme of enchantment that brings to life cherished Disney fairytales.”
Most of the staterooms will feature Disney Cruise Line’s split-bathroom concept. This layout features a sink and shower in one room and a sink and toilet in a separate room. All staterooms will feature a bathtub!
Expect to see enhanced storage options as well, including roomy closets and elevated bed frames (to help with under-bed storage!).
And when those pull-down beds are opened up, you’ll get to see the secret starfield hidden above “with original artwork revealing a constellation of Fairy Godmother.”
Looking for more highlights? Staterooms will feature a 43-inch TV, USB and USB-C ports, a large vanity, mini drawer refrigerator, full-length mirror, mini-safe, hairdryer, privacy divider, queen and pull-out sofa beds, deluxe toiletries, plush robes, and lavish bed linens and duvets.
The staterooms are full of rich theming to enhance enchanted storytelling. Imagineers used the “enchanted” motif to design the rooms through three different lenses: Fairytales and Castle, Forest and Animals, and Enchanted by the Sea.
Each stateroom will feature custom-made artwork for the Disney Wish that depicts beloved Disney fairytales. Disney has shared that there will be “glittering gold-leafed headboard murals and framed pieces commissioned exclusively for the Disney Wish.”
Beyond that, the furnishings will tell the story as well with delicate linen embroidery and more.
Even the hallways will feel like a part of the enchantment! The carpeting, accent walls, lighting, and unique adornments will help to subtly make guests feel like they are welcome.
Disney Cruise Line is greatly expanding on the concierge experience by more than doubling the number of premium rooms and suites to 76 total concierge staterooms and suites.
These rooms include Disney’s first-ever staterooms located above the bridge with extended living areas and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The rooms will accommodate up to five guests with large living areas, king beds, luxurious finishes, and premium amenities. Most concierge rooms feature a private verandah, and most been themed with design elements of Tangled in mind. There are 7 special The Little Mermaid-themed spaces as well.
One-bedroom concierge suites will have a separate set of amenities, featuring a separate living room, walk-in closets, two 43-inch TVs, and two bathrooms (including a master bathroom with rain shower, bathtub, and double vanity). Wow, talk about lux!
All concierge-level rooms and suites will have access to an exclusive lounge with a private sun deck with 2 whirlpools, a wading pool, a bar, lounge furniture, and more, so that guests can enjoy a premium level of dedicated service. The Concierge Lounge will actually be more than triple the size of previous lounges on the other Disney ships and will have a full bar, and offer light bites, a kids’ area, and an outdoor terrace.
For the most luxurious room offerings, the Disney Wish will debut four royal suites. These extremely lavish suites will accommodate up to six guests and feature first-class amenities. Two of the rooms are Disney Cruise Line’s first two-story suites with features like an elegant spiral staircase and a spectacular two-deck-high stained-glass frieze.
All of the royal suites are inspired by Sleeping Beauty. Two are the Princess Aurora Royal Suites and two are the Briar Rose Royal Suites. Each pair has one single-floor suite and one two-floor option.
Expect the royal suites to include an extensive living area, open dining salon, sizeable pantry, and private hot tub on the oversized verandah. They will also each feature two master bedrooms, each with its own bathroom featuring a double vanity and either a rain shower or bathtub. The living room will have a double sleeper sofa in the living room near a third bathroom with a shower.
Wish Tower Suite
Disney has also shared that the Wish will feature a super special (and luxurious) suite located IN one of the ship’s funnels!
The Wish Tower Suite will be a 1,966-square-foot penthouse with 2 main bedrooms, a children’s room, a library that converts into a bedroom, and 4.5 bathrooms.
Holy moly! There’s a LOT of very cool details to see in these staterooms and suites and we can’t wait to learn more about them. As always, stay tuned to DFB for all the latest updates about the Disney Wish.
