Today, Disney Parks, Resorts, and Consumer Products announced the name of the Disney Wish, one of the three new Disney Cruise Line ships launching in the coming years.

From Disney Parks Blog:

At the D23 Expo 2019 today, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Bob Chapek announced the highly anticipated name of the fifth Disney Cruise Line ship, gave us a first glance of the ship’s elegant atrium and revealed the iconic Disney character that will adorn the ship’s stern. Bob was joined by Imagineer Joe Rohde to share a first look at the plans for our second island destination in The Bahamas. I’m thrilled to share all these details with you!

Disney Wish was revealed as the name of our fifth ship. It’s very fitting because making wishes come true is at the heart of so many Disney stories.

The ship’s atrium will be a bright, airy and elegant space inspired by the beauty of an enchanted fairytale. A beloved hallmark of Disney Cruise Line, it has been a tradition to adorn the back of our ships with an iconic character that reflects the theme of each vessel. For the Disney Wish, the ship’s stern will feature Rapunzel. Our favorite artsy princess, paintbrush in hand, uses her enchanted hair to suspend herself as she decorates the stern of the ship with the help of her feisty sidekick, Pascal. Spirited, smart, curious and above all, adventurous, Rapunzel embodies the wish and desire to see and experience the world.

The Disney Wish is scheduled for delivery in late 2021 and will set sail in January 2022. The vessel will join Disney Cruise Line’s award-winning fleet where guests experience the magic of Disney entertainment combined with the relaxation of tropical, sun-drenched beaches and the adventure of ocean cruising. All three new ships will be powered by liquefied natural gas and, at approximately 144,000 gross tons and 1,250 guest staterooms, be slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

So what destinations are they going to?

Was hoping a bit sooner and a bit smaller than dream and fantasy, have been on magic, wonder and fantasy twice each, prefer size and atmosphere of the 2 smaller ships.

While I think the Fantasy is stunning, I do agree that the smaller ships feel more intimate and special. Maybe a size in between the two would be ideal.

We are excited to know what water features will be on the pool deck. Does a slightly bigger ship mean a slightly longer Aquaduck?! 🤔😁🤩
