I am getting more and more excited about the debut of the new Disney Cruise Line ship, the Disney Wish and today, during the Destination D23 presentation, they shared details about the live shows that will take place on the ship. (A staple of sailing on the Disney Cruise Line.)
Disney Cruise Line ships are well known for the incredible Broadway style performances that occur in the Walt Disney Theatre. The Wish’s theatre design will be a little different from the other ships. This version will evoke an enchanted forest, inspired by scenes from Fantasia. The space will be a 1,274-seat theater that spans three decks with orchestra and balcony seating. The theater will be equipped with state-of the-art technology. This will include projection mapping capabilities and a Dolby Atmos 3D audio system to create a transformative experience.
Previously, they had announced that Disney’s Aladdin would be the first show. One show has already been announced for the Disney Wish. That will be the fan -favorite “Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular.” The show is a musical comedy that is based on the classic animated film, Aladdin. Iconic scenes and songs from the movie will be re-created on stage. This will include a lively rendition of “Friend Like Me.” There will also be a performance of “A Whole New World” atop a flying magic carpet. Plus there will be an original song called “To Be Free.” This will be a solo performance for Jasmine.
But now we know what the other two shows will be.
Two New Disney Wish Shows
The first show will be a new show called “Disney Seas the Adventure.” This show will follow Goofy as he discovers his own inner captain with the help of Captain Minnie and an all-star cast of Disney and Pixar characters.
The second show will feature a story we all know and love. “Disney The Little Mermaid,” will be an original Broadway-style reimagining of the Walt Disney Animation Studios. The show will be a modern and innovative take on a young woman learning the power of her voice. The show will feature dazzling special effects, innovative theatrical design, artistic choreography, and a reimagined script and score.
The Disney Wish
The Disney Wish will sail its maiden voyage on June 9, 2022. The ship will then sail three- and four-night cruises to Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, from Port Canaveral, Florida.
