The Disney Wish, which sails its maiden voyage in June 2022, will boast an original stage adaptation of The Little Mermaid, offering a Broadway-style take on Disney’s 1989 film.
The Little Mermaid is headlining the Disney Wish’s entertainment offerings. Created exclusively for Disney’s latest ship, the show will feature iconic scenes, acclaimed music and beloved characters.
It will also use innovative theatrical design, stunning special effects, artistic choreography, and a reimagined script and score. State-of-the-art video projections will transform the theatre into a 360-degree underwater environment.
‘Disney Seas the Adventure’
The description from Disney is as follows:
“In this modern-day retelling, the curtain will rise on an enchanted treasure chest at the moment it is discovered by a group of storytellers, led by a special young woman who has the power to unlock its magic.
“As they uncover the whozits and whatzits galore hidden within the trunk, the storytellers will take on the roles of Ariel, Ursula, Prince Eric, Sebastian, Flounder and more, bringing to life the immersive undersea world right before guests’ eyes.
“They’ll put their own contemporary spin on the timeless story of a young woman’s search for independence, love and a place in the world.”

The show includes new orchestrations of songs such as ‘Under the Sea’, ‘Part of Your World’, and ‘Poor Unfortunate Souls’. Cutting-edge puppetry will animate sea creatures and characters, including Sebastian, Flounder, Scuttle, and Flotsam and Jetsam.
In addition, ‘Disney Seas the Adventure’ will entertain guests on their first night aboard the ship. The show will feature a host of Disney and Pixar characters, as well as iconic Disney songs.
