Let’s start with one of our absolute favorite adult spaces onboard the Disney Wish – The Bayou. This swanky retreat is sure to make Guests feel like they're sipping on a Hurricane right in the heart of New Orleans. Adorned with a canopy of magnolia blossoms and lily pads, as well as vibrant green and gold hues, this Louisiana-inspired lounge is the place to be. Especially in the evenings when jazz is in the air as a live band provides rhythms smooth as a sea breeze. And, y’all don’t forget to try the signature beignets … it’s Tiana’s secret recipe after all!

This highly immersive space makes Guests feel like they are actually living in the Star Wars films, especially as the starship jumps through hyperspace.

Located right off of the Grand Hall, Nightingales piano bar continues the ship’s alluring theme of enchantment. Inspired by Cinderella’s lyrical rendition of “Sing Sweet Nightingale,” this space exudes grace and elegance, with alluring melodies, rose gold accents and a glittering chandelier at its center. Guests won’t want to miss the specialty cocktails in this location or the bubbling champagnes and fine wines that are the perfect overture to a fairytale-inspired evening.

As Guests sip on a custom craft brew, they can take in the traditional map that spans the entire length of the ceiling – they might even spot some favorite Disney friends up there.

One of the best ways to create memories with loved ones comes from sharing a meal around a table – and the dining experiences on the Disney Wish are more magical than ever. With three brand new dining concepts – ranging from theatrical entertainment … to cinematic adventure … to sophisticated elegance – mealtimes are the prime time to be immersed in the imaginative worlds of favorite Disney and Marvel stories and Hollywood’s Golden Age.

At Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure, families will be treated to dinner and an enchanting show during Disney’s first-ever “Frozen” dining experience. You are among honored guests celebrating the royal engagement of Queen Anna and Kristoff, picking up the story right where Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” left off. In addition to captivating theatrical performances, Guests will be visited by friends such as Elsa, Oaken, and everyone’s favorite snowman, Olaf, in a completely new way that is exclusive to Disney Cruise Line.

As Guests dine on extraordinary cuisine infused with Nordic influences, this cozy hall is illuminated by a backdrop of the glittering Aurora Borealis. Throughout the meal, Guests will have the opportunity to join the festivities with tableside crafts, entertaining sing-alongs and a grand finale that’ll have everyone in the audience on their feet.

Worlds of Marvel is the first-ever Marvel cinematic dining adventure, where families will play an interactive role in a brand-new, action-packed Avengers mission that unfolds around them. Complete with fan-favorite character visits and a few “little” surprises, this is an experience that Guests won’t want to miss. 

At this iconic location, Guests will be surrounded by state-of-the-art Pym Tech and a signature Stark-itecture style as they enjoy a worldly menu inspired by a mix of real and fictional settings, such as African Wakanda, Eastern European Sokovia and the Avengers’ home base of New York City.

And, if Guests are fans of Disney history, animation or any combination of the two, then they will love 1923, an elegant restaurant named for the year The Walt Disney Company was founded. As Guests make their way into one of the two dining rooms named in honor of the Disney brothers, they will be greeted by hundreds of drawings, props and sketches that provide an insider’s look at the creation of Disney’s beloved animations, both classic and modern. 

With a sleek, sophisticated decor paired with gold finishing touches, the dining room hints at the grandeur and glamour of Old Hollywood. 1923 offers culinary delights inspired by Disney’s California heritage, showcasing the region’s unique blend of Asian, European and South American cuisine. 

Our newest venues onboard the Disney Wish offer a unique range of cuisines, design and entertainment, and we simply can’t wait for our Guests to try all three!

We are absolutely thrilled that the Disney Wish has finally made its grand debut. In honor of the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet, we’re starting a brand-new series of posts right here that will give you an exclusive look at our innovative and imaginative ship.

And what better place to start than in the Grand Hall, the enchanting centerpiece of the ship?

This fairytale-inspired space is a tribute to the story of Cinderella and includes a beautiful bronze statue of the beloved princess, stained-glass embellishments in her signature colors and icons from the Disney film classic that guests can discover in unexpected places including the carpeting, metalwork and light fixtures.

So, let’s talk about the literal star of the show — the chandelier! This glittering icon was designed with magical enchantment in mind and is actually a dazzling wishing star that comes to life in wonderous ways throughout the voyage … especially when guests step inside for the first time. Every child coming aboard will receive their own wishing wand, which they will use to make the “First Wish” of their vacation during a special boarding celebration.

fbba22f1-c744-4920-8bb6-b69aba7fadd5.jpg

This reimagined atrium will even evolve in a completely new way during every sailing, transforming from a classic fairytale gathering space into a thrilling theater through the magic of built-in special effects. The Grand Hall features the first-ever atrium stage on a Disney ship, and hosts dedicated shows and interactive entertainment that puts guests front and center as they play a special role in the magic.

From the grand staircase and the starry, shimmering chandelier above … to the ornate stage, dedicated shows and interactive entertainment … this new venue is the perfect space for wishes to come true. Wish away!

Be sure to stay tuned here and over on our Instagram and Facebook over the next few weeks as we continue to take you onboard!

Tiana’s Bayou Adventure Coming to Disney Parks in Late 2024 Strike up the band because we’ve saved a seat for everyone on this musical journey with Tiana and friends! The name of the new attraction evolving from the reimagining of Splash Mountain was announced today during ESSENCE Fest in New Orleans: Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. The all-new adventure which will bring guests into the world of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film “The Princess and the Frog” like never before is coming to Magic Kingdom in Florida and Disneyland park in California in late 2024.

Fri, 01 Jul 2022 12:43:17 -0400 https://www.disneytravelagents.com/news/10030 https://www.disneytravelagents.com/news/10030 (Disney Destinations) Disney Destinations Strike up the band because we’ve saved a seat for everyone on this musical journey with Tiana and friends! The name of the new attraction evolving from the reimagining of Splash Mountain was announced today during ESSENCE Fest in New Orleans: Tiana’s Bayou Adventure. The all-new adventure which will bring guests into the world of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ film “The Princess and the Frog” like never before is coming to Magic Kingdom in Florida and Disneyland park in California in late 2024.

1077b3ea-498f-41af-9d65-fc5dd7d639a9.png

 

Walt Disney Imagineers have been frequent travelers to Louisiana while conducting extensive research to ensure Tiana’s Bayou Adventure preserves the heart and soul of the city that inspired Princess Tiana’s story. From exploring the French Market and the bayou, to consulting with academics, chefs, musicians and cultural institutions, Imagineers have received inspiration from all over the region and learned from local experts along the way.

 

This research was explored in detail today at the French Quarter’s historic Preservation Hall during an intimate event held in honor of ESSENCE Fest, happening this weekend in New Orleans. With its own distinct history bringing people together, Preservation Hall was the ideal location to celebrate an attraction where music and community are at the heart of a transformational journey.

The celebration included a panel moderated by Victoria Uwumarogie, senior lifestyle editor at ESSENCE Magazine. Joining me in this discussion were colleagues and friends Charita Carter, executive producer of relevancy activations at Walt Disney Imagineering, Ted Robledo, executive creative director at Walt Disney Imagineering and Stella Chase, daughter of the late Chef Leah Chase who inspired Tiana’s story. Guests were treated to live art demonstrations provided by emerging talent from YAYA Arts Center, an organization we’ve engaged to commission artwork from alumna Sharika Mahdi. Music from the world-renowned Preservation Hall Jazz Band echoed throughout the hall, along with a performance by the voice of Mama Odie and living legend herself, Jenifer Lewis.

Guests are in for a true treat with local flavor when Tiana’s Bayou Adventure opens in late 2024. As Charita Carter shared, “in many ways, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure is a love letter to New Orleans. Like the musical city that inspired this attraction, Tiana’s second act is about a community working in harmony to achieve something extraordinary. She reminds us of an immutable truth we can all relate to: ‘if you do your best each and every day, good things are sure to come your way.’ And that’s a melody we can all sing along to!”

 

22301bda-191c-4d52-94d4-233779bba474.jpeg

 

To be able to join New Orleans in the celebration of Black joy as we bring Tiana’s story to its roots is a full-circle moment I’m so proud to realize. Ted Robledo added that “the joie de vivre that animates this region so brilliantly not only inspired Tiana’s journey, but also our team at Walt Disney Imagineering.” It’s our intention to do that jubilant spirit justice when advancing the storyline of Princess Tiana at our parks.

 

b43f6424-3253-4ea4-a9fa-7bb2386fa339.jpg

 

First announced in 2020, Tiana’s Bayou Adventure will take guests on a musical adventure inspired by the beloved story and characters from the fan-favorite film. Picking up where the film left off, guests will join Princess Tiana, Naveen and jazz-loving alligator Louis on an adventure through the bayou as they prepare to host a one-of-a-kind Mardi Gras celebration where everyone is welcome. Along the way, guests will encounter familiar faces, make new friends and travel through the bayou to original music inspired by songs from the film as they are brought into the next chapter of Tiana’s story.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates!
