Closer Look at 1923 and Marceline Market Restaurants Aboard Disney Wish

Disney Cruise Line has provided a closer look at two new dining spaces aboard the Disney Wish inspired by Walt Disney: 1923 and Marceline Market.

1923

Named for the year The Walt Disney Company was founded, 1923 is one of the three main dining venues families will enjoy each night on board the Disney Wish. This elegant restaurant combines classic Hollywood glamour with a dash of Disney whimsy, providing an inside look at the evolution of Disney animation.

Adorning the walls and ornate glass cases around the restaurant are more than 1,000 drawings, props and other tools of the trade showcasing 16 Disney films that embody the ship’s themes of enchantment and wish fulfillment. Many of these stories also hold a significant role in the history and legacy of the company, such as:

  • “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937), the world’s first feature-length animated film ever.
  • “Fantasia” (1940), a boundary-pushing project that introduced Fantasound (the precursor to stereophonic sound).
  • “Cinderella” (1950), which ushered in a new golden age of animated features.
  • “The Little Mermaid” (1989), a generation-defining classic that paved the way for “Beauty and the Beast” (1991), “The Lion King” (1994”) and other animated tales we know and love today.

Even the menu at 1923 pays tribute to the company’s roots in California, with sophisticated dishes inspired by the fusion of cultural flavors found throughout the Golden State. The diverse menu will mirror the region’s unique blend of Asian, European and South American cuisines and a superlative selection of world-famous Napa Valley wines.

Marceline Market

Long before he was a pioneer in the entertainment industry, Walt was a young boy growing up on a farm in Marceline, Missouri. Considered his most formative years, Walt’s time in Marceline inspired many of the stories he would tell later in life. It’s where he developed a love for animals and steam trains, themes that continue to influence Disney films and theme park attractions, and it’s also the inspiration behind Main Street U.S.A. at our parks around the world.

At Marceline Market — the stylish food hall aboard the Disney Wish where guests will enjoy casual, walk-up dining throughout the day — each of the 10 food stalls is themed to a beloved Disney animated story, from classics such as “Alice in Wonderland” (1951) to more recent films like “Zootopia” (2016). This fun design twist presents favorite characters as honorary “shopkeepers,” offering a wide-ranging variety of freshly prepared cuisines for the whole family to enjoy, including American classics, international specialties, comfort foods, seafood, soups and salads, vegetarian and plant-based fare, baked goods, and desserts.

The christening of the Disney Wish will be streamed live next Wednesday, June 29. Though it has arrived at Port Canaveral and we are less than a month out from its maiden voyage, the first two test voyages have been canceled.
