There are many different itinerary options that you can choose from if you want to go on the Disney Wish.
If you are looking to go for 1 to 3 nights or 7 nights, there are options! It is truly up to you which ones you pick. It depends on how much time you have and how much money you are willing to spend.
1 to 3 Night Options
If you are looking for a short getaway, there are so many different itinerary options for you to take!
Choose from going to the Bahamas and Disney Castaway Cay if you want to sail out of Florida, or if you want to sail out of San Diego, consider choosing the 3-night Baja cruise to go Catalina Island in California and Ensenada, Mexico.
There are other options for where to leave as well. However, the departure port that you choose will impact where the cruise will go. For instance, if you want to leave out of Port Canaveral near Orlando, you will only go to the Bahamas on the 3-night cruise.
4 Night Options
If you want to take a slightly longer vacation, you can choose to go on a 4-night cruise on the Disney Wish. Your options are as follows:
- Western Caribbean from Galveston that goes to Progreso, Mexico

- Pacific Coast Cruise from Vancouver to San Diego (doesn’t stop along the way)
- Western Caribbean from New Orleans to Cozumel, Mexico
- Pacific Coast Cruise from San Diego to Vancouver that stops in Victoria, B.C.
- Baja cruise from San Diego to stop in Catalina Island and Ensenada
- Bahamian cruise to Nassau and Disney Castaway Cay from Fort Lauderdale or Port Canaveral
Depending on the dates and the itinerary that you choose, these run from the upper $1,000 to about mid $3,000.
5 to 6 Night Cruise Options
If 4 nights don’t seem like enough, you have the option to go a bit longer!
Here are the options that you can choose from:
- 6-night Western Caribbean (goes to Cozumel, Mexico, George Town, Grand Cayman, Falmouth, Jamaica, and San Juan, Puerto Rico)

These ones go to many more places and you’ll see more things along the way while enjoying your time cruising!
Here are your options:

If you think dining out is a fun experience, wait until you experience a restaurant on the Disney Wish! The dining is quite like anything you’ve probably experienced before.
You can choose to go to the Arendelle Restaurant—a Frozen-themed experience.
You will experience many musical performances from Elsa and Olaf and the others as you sit and enjoy the delicious Norwegian-inspired cuisine!
If you want a change of pace from the Frozen-themed restaurant, you can try out the Marvel restaurant on another night aboard the ship. You can use an interactive Quantum Core to shrink and grow objects around you as part of the Avengers mission.
While you’re enjoying the fun-packed restaurant, you can enjoy cuisine ranging from American fare to African flavors! The options will bring you around the world.
On your third night, head on over to 1923. It is a more sophisticated restaurant that pays ode to the year that The Walt Disney Studios was founded. You’ll enjoy a lot of delicious food as if you were in California near the Studios!
Sometimes you aren’t going to need a nice sit-down meal. You may want to munch on a few snacks or get a quick bite to eat.
If that’s the case, you’ll have a lot of options to choose from. Try out Mickey & Friends Festival of Foods whenever you want lunch, dinner, or a quick bite. You can grab ice cream, barbecue, tacos, pizza, and more! The options will be sure to satisfy anyone’s palate.
Fun in the Sun Entertainment
Now for the real reason that you probably want to go on the Disney Wish – the entertainment. There is so much to do and see onboard – it will be sure to keep you busy when you are not in port somewhere.
For starters, the Disney Wish has the first-ever Disney attraction at sea! Mickey and Minnie inspire all of the adventures to happen on the ship. There are immersive show scenes, tons of music, and over 760 feet of twisting and turning on the water slides around the ship.
After you slide through the long slides, you’ll find yourself on the lazy river at the end of it all!
If you do not want to go on this immersive water slide experience, you can instead opt for a family experience for all! If you love Disney storytelling, this is one that you will absolutely love.
Join some of your favorite Disney characters in this interactive and multidimensional search for magic! You will simply use an app on your phone to embark on this quest. You will be finding magic everywhere you go!
If you want a calmer experience on board the Disney Wish, you can enjoy a magical story at the theater. You can watch The Little Mermaid, Disney Seas the Adventure, and Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular.
If you feel that this is not enough entertainment for you and your family, fear not! There are so many other options that you can choose from as well.
You can enjoy time at one of the 10 pools and water play areas on the cruise! You can play near Mickey or choose to spend more time at the Toy Story Splash Zone. There is a pool that is perfect for everyone!
For an even more laid-back afternoon or evening, go catch a movie at the Wonderland Cinema or Never Land Cinema. Both are large screening rooms that you would love to be in!
Do your kids want to do something without you on the cruise? Or do you want time with your partner without your kids for a bit?
You can send your kids to the youth clubs! There are clubs for kids, tweens, and teens alike!
Children ages 3 to 12 can enjoy the Marvel Super Hero Academy—teaming up with some of their favorite characters for the night!
The Star Wars Universe is an immersive experience that makes your kids feel like they are on board a starship. The Walt Disney Imagineering Lab is perfect for kids who love to create! If they’ve ever wondered what it would be like to create their own attractive coin, they can get a sneak peek into what that would be like here!
If you have a child that loves fairytales, you’ll want to send them to Fairytale Hall. It’s the perfect spot to have them create their own memories as if they were in a fairytale themselves!
As great as entertainment for the entire family is, sometimes it is nice to take a bit of an escape from the family and spend time with your partner or even yourself.
This is where the Disney Wish’s adult-only escapes come into play.
You can spend time at the Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge for some great cocktails. Although families are allowed during the day, it becomes an adult-only location at night. You may even be able to experience an interactive tasting experience!
If you want a more relaxing environment rather than this hip bar, you may love to find yourself at Quiet Cove. It is an onboard oasis that can give you a bit of calm from all of the chaos around the ship. This adult-only space spans an entire section of the ship’s upper decks, so there is more than enough room for everyone to enjoy.
There is also a dining experience that you can have to yourself without the kids as well.
The Palo Steakhouse is an evolution of the already-known Palo restaurant from other Disney cruises. The Steakhouse offers delicious Italian dishes as well as a wide selection of steaks. By the time you leave here, you will be stuffed full (in a good way!).
If you want something less upscale, you may also want to check out the Pub. It has a romantic vibe with wood carvings of a Viking ship and a map on the entire ceiling.
If you love beer, this is the place you will want to be!
Of course, there is much more entertainment aboard the ship than just these options. You may want to go to the spa to pamper yourself, or you may want to go to the salon to feel like a princess aboard the Disney cruise!
Every place you go, you will feel as though you are part of a Disney movie or show. Even when there isn’t direct entertainment, you will still feel the liveliness of the cruise.
Go on a Disney Wish Cruise
If you are a Disney lover, then you will love nothing more than the Disney Wish Cruise. This new ship boasts a lot of what the other ships already have, but so much more!
Whether you want a quick getaway or a longer vacation, you can make everyone happy by choosing to go on the Disney Wish. From fine dining to dining with entertainment for the little ones to fun pool areas and youth clubs, there is really something for everyone.
