Disney Wish is the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet and offers new experiences you won’t find on other ships.

It also boasts Disney’s first-ever attraction at sea, AquaMouse. A waterslide adventure like no other.

Disney Wish offers new attractions you won’t find anywhere else.

“The moment kids walk in they slide all the way down into the kids from one deck to the next. There they will find Princess Fairytale Hall and Marvel Superhero Academy,” said Jennifer Haile-Tinn, director of marketing.

Last week, we showed you the Disney Wish making its way home to Port Canaveral for the first time.
