Fun Facts

Here are more Disney Wish ship facts.  The Disney ships are painted in Mickey Mouse-inspired colors – black hull, white superstructure, yellow trim and two giant red funnels, each with the Disney Cruise Line Mickey Mouse logo.

Disney Cruise Line was the first cruise line to have yellow lifeboats, instead of the traditional regulation orange. Disney was granted special permission from the U.S. Coast Guard to paint the lifeboats yellow, to keep with the special color theming of the ship.

Disney ships are the only cruise ships to have four captains – the ship’s captain, Captain Minnie, Captain Hook and Captain Jack Sparrow.  Disney Wish is the first Disney cruise ship to have Minnie as her captain.

Offer free soft drinks any time of day or night, with a free 24/7 beverage station offering sodas, coffee, tea and water.

In a cruise industry first, most staterooms on Disney ships feature a split “bath-and-a-half” design, providing families the added convenience of a sink and tub/shower in one room and a sink and toilet in a separate room.

The ship’s horn on the Disney Wish is a prominent element of the “Sailing Away” deck party at the start of every cruise and is quite the musical talent. The horns are able to sound the first musical line of “When You Wish Upon a Star” as well as the second line of the song (“makes no difference who you are”) plus, several measures of “Yo Ho (A Pirate’s Life for Me),” “It’s a Small World,” “Be Our Guest,” “Hi Diddle Dee Dee (An Actor’s Life for Me)” and “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.”

The character on the Disney Wish’s stern is Repunzel.  Every Disney Cruise Line ship has an atrium lobby statue celebrating a classic Disney character. The Disney Wish’s bronze-cast pièce de résistance is Cinderella.

The water coaster on the Disney Wish is a first-ever attraction at sea.  It is 760-feet long and the ride is 2+minutes with water effects, lighting effects with music track and show scenes.  Walt Disney Imagineers elevated the AquaMouse water coaster on the Disney Wish in order to maximize space on the deck. And with the AquaMouse in place, they had room for their imaginations to concoct yet another family activity on the Disney Wish – Toy Story Splash Zone play area for younger kids.  This area have a water slide themed to Toy Story called “Slideasaurus Rex”.

At 1,119 feet, the Disney Wish is longer than the height of the Eiffel Tower in Paris (1,063 feet) and longer than the height of New York City’s famous Chrysler Building (1,047 feet).

A leader in family entertainment, Disney is the only cruise line to first-run feature films, including films in 3-D, with movies premiering at sea on the same day that they are released on land.
