When it comes to the overall design of the Disney Wish, one of the things I’m most excited about is how the new ship will brim with Disney storytelling and enchantment. So, let’s explore one of the stories today… my favorite tale as old as time, “Beauty and the Beast.”
It’s fine dining we suggest
If you’ve ever vacationed with Disney Cruise Line before, you know how we offer dedicated spaces for adults to relax and unwind. Aboard the Disney Wish, our adult dining venues will have a uniquely Disney twist inspired by this classic story.
At Palo Steakhouse, we are evolving the Disney Cruise Line favorite and combining authentic Italian cuisine with modern steakhouse fare. As you dine in this sophisticated setting, you’ll notice subtle theming centered around everyone’s favorite punctual and precise clock, Cogsworth! The design of this space features dark wood detailing that is adorned with clockwork-inspired wall art. The layout will offer oversized banquette seating or the option for a more intimate table that will be adjacent to expansive windows offering stunning ocean views.
While Palo Steakhouse is deep and rich in ambience, Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement celebrates the light and frivolity of Cogsworth’s quick-witted colleague, Lumiere, boasting a palette of blues and white brought to life through shimmering light fixtures made up of gold and glassy baubles. You’ll discover these elegant design details celebrating the debonair candelabra all while enjoying a gourmet menu created by the three-star-Michelin Chef Lallement. One thing’s for sure, a dinner here will certainly be an illuminating experience!
Both restaurants will feature private dining rooms and will be joined by an outdoor terrace overlooking the ocean.
And, of course, we wouldn’t be able to celebrate the story of “Beauty and the Beast” without including one of the most iconic elements in the film – the enchanted rose that started it all. Found at the entrance to Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté, the lounge, appropriately named The Rose, will serve as the perfect setting for a pre-dinner aperitif or after-dinner cocktail.
Venture through Belle’s Library
So far, we’ve only explored our adult-exclusive spaces on the Disney Wish, but we’ve designed something equally as special just for kids! At Disney’s Oceaneer Club, young princes and princesses will be invited to explore Belle’s library as part of the royal trio of activity rooms in Fairytale Hall. There, kids will act out some of their favorite stories with Disney friends. And who knows? They might just meet the courageous princess – an avid book reader herself!
Disney Cruise Line proudly presents a Broadway-style spectacular
Beyond the Disney Wish, there are other ways to celebrate this classic tale at sea! Our Broadway-style show “Beauty and the Beast” aboard the Disney Dream is an innovative take that draws inspiration from the live-action film. This musical production is filled with show-stopping numbers featuring the songs you know and love, and the immersive set is simply stunning! Giant LED walls transport audiences throughout the adventure, and for the first time for a “Beauty and the Beast” stage show, the use of innovative puppetry brings the enchanted objects to life. It’s a must-see when sailing aboard the Disney Dream.
And there’s no doubt you’ll find other references to this timeless tale throughout all of our Disney cruise ships and be able to see favorite Disney friends, including Belle, throughout your Disney cruise vacation.
