If the wishing star makes dreams come true, what happens when it goes missing?

That’s a big question with an even more epic answer: Disney Uncharted Adventure, a first-of-its-kind interactive experience that will lead guests aboard the Disney Wish on a journey from bow to stern and beyond the stars. Just announced today, this fantastical journey will be a brand-new way to explore and experience the enchantment of a Disney cruise ship.

Using innovative technology like augmented reality and physical effects, Disney Uncharted Adventure will take classic Disney storytelling into an all-new realm of immersive family fun as guests embark on a multidimensional voyage into the worlds of Moana, Tiana, Peter Pan, Nemo and more.

Watch the latest episode in our “Designing the Disney Wish” series to hear from the creative team behind Disney Uncharted Adventure, then read on for even more details about this one-of-a-kind experience coming to the Disney Wish in summer 2022. 

With a Disney Wish reservation, you will be able to unlock Disney Uncharted Adventure on the Play Disney Parks app, which transforms your mobile device into an enchanted spyglass – a tool that allows you to set sail for adventure, solve puzzles, conquer quests and ultimately save the day. 

Before the ship sets sail, Captain Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse will help you prepare for the journey ahead by highlighting the important role of the night sky in seafaring — particularly the ever-shining wishing star that lights the way.

Once on board, you will use your spyglass to reveal never-before-seen views of the stars above, where enchanted constellations take shape as recognizable icons from Disney and Pixar stories. When the wishing star suddenly bursts and shatters, you’ll watch as its pieces are scattered across the sky, each landing in a far-off realm. Captain Minnie will need your help to navigate the ship to these uncharted worlds to find the missing pieces of the wishing star!

You will choose where to go next, charting a course toward adventurous locales such as Motunui, New Orleans, Never Land, Sydney and more. Each quest will take you on an expansive journey throughout the Disney Wish as you are prompted to seek artwork, signs and props that magically transform to bring the characters and settings of these story worlds to life all around you. 

Along the way, you will join the heroic characters who inhabit each destination on a mission to find the star fragment that landed there. Highlights include:

  • teaming up with Moana to navigate their canoes beyond the reef;
  • helping Tiana cook up the perfect pot of her father’s favorite gumbo;
  • summoning Tinker Bell to give the Disney Wish an extra dash of pixie dust; and
  • diving into the East Australian Current (EAC) with Nemo and friends.

The adventure will culminate in a grand finale hosted in one of the ship’s premier entertainment venues. During this live interactive experience, you’ll gather with other players to battle an infamous Disney villain (who’s been pulling the strings all along) and finally restore the wishing star to its rightful place in the sky.

Disney Uncharted Adventure is being developed with flexibility, replayability and customization in mind, so you can be in charge of your own adventure! You’ll choose when and how to play. If you don’t complete every quest, you can still enjoy the finale event. If you play again and again, you may discover new surprises and rewards each time. You can play on your own or with family and friends — the experience works with up to four devices at once, but you can also team up on only one or two devices at a time.

More details about Disney Uncharted Adventure will be announced at a later date. Until then, stay tuned for exciting updates about the Disney Wish!
