PHOTOS, VIDEO: ‘Walking The Wish’ Full Guided Tour of Disney Cruise Line’s Newest Ship

We took a full guided tour of the Disney Wish cruise ship during one of the very first voyages, and now we’re bringing you along. This experience is available on all the Disney Cruise Line ships during most voyages, but it has been renamed for The Wish to “Walking the Wish” if you are trying to find in the the DCL Navigator App.

Watch our video of the guided tour below:

We got a look at Rapunzel and Pascal on the stern of the Disney Wish, visible through a window in Arendelle.

The tour also took us to the Enchanted Sword Café, inspired by “The Sword in the Stone,” and Keg & Compass. While on deck 5, the Cast Member spoke some about the Grand Hall, including the ribbon-like staircase, which is the first on a Disney Cruise Line ship to connect three decks.

The tour stopped on a staircase to talk about some “La Luna” artwork on display, before moving to Luna, a space inspired by the short film. Because this tour happens during regular ship hours, many of these spaces are operating and hosting other activities. As such, the tour doesn’t go inside every space, but the guide provides information about the interiors.

We then stopped by Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and then the Wishing Star Café. The latter is named after the “Wishing Star” hanging from the chandelier in the Grand Hall, which is visible from the café.

We also visited Hook’s Barbery and the Untangled Salon, inspired by Captain Hook and Rapunzel respectively. The chandelier inside the Untangled Salon is inspired by the sundrop flower from “Tangled.”

After the salon, we headed down to the Worlds of Marvel Restaurant and then 1923. Outside 1923 is a moving work of cutout art inspired by “Mickey and the Beanstalk,” featuring a cameo of the Disney Wish.

We also stopped outside the youth activities area, Nightingale’s, Hyperspace Lounge, and Bayou Lounge. Before heading into the Grand Hall, our tour guide spoke about more artwork, including this painting of the Disney Wish split in half, with a look inside all of the venues aboard the ship.
