Walt Disney World Resort has opened a Disney Wish exhibit at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that showcases the latest innovative ship from Disney Cruise Line.

The Disney Wish gallery space can be found at the Walt Disney Presents attraction, located in Animation Courtyard at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida.

The Disney Cruise Line exhibit is a celebration of the fleet’s history, as well as a space for never-before-seen artefacts and photos from the making of the Disney Wish.

The Disney Wish sails its maiden voyage on June 9, 2022. It will immerse visitors in themed environments and experiences inspired by Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars.

On display at the exhibit are a life-size maquette of the Cinderella statue that will feature at the ship’s grand hall, as well as a detailed scale model of the Disney Wish.

Additionally, the exhibit includes replicas of the Disney Animation maquettes that will adorn the ship’s dining rooms at 1923, an elegant restaurant inspired by Hollywood’s Golden Age.

The attraction also features the scale concept model used to design the enormous statue of Rapunzel from Tangled on the stern of the Disney Wish.

The Disney Wish will offer myriad innovative experiences when it sets sail next year, from an AR experience called Disney Uncharted Adventure to the first Disney attraction at sea, AquaMouse.

“We are infusing the Disney Wish with innovative technology, like augmented reality and physical effects, to create a hidden layer of magic that can only be unlocked with Disney Uncharted Adventure,” said Davey Feder, software product manager at Imagineering

Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure is the company’s first Frozen-themed theatrical dining experience and Avengers: Quantum Encounter is the first-ever Marvel dining experience at the Worlds of Marvel restaurant.

For the first time on a Disney ship, visitors will enjoy Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge, a themed and immersive experience for adults with interactive tasting experiences.

The Disney Wish sails its maiden voyage to Nassau and Castaway Cay on June 9, 2022. This will be followed by cruises to the same destinations from Port Canaveral, Florida.
