I know you’ve all been wondering … and wishing … but have you heard the news?
Earlier today, we revealed that all Make-A-Wish children, including past, present and future wish recipients, will be honored as godchildren of the Disney Wish.
This is the first time in Disney Cruise Line history that children are being recognized in this important role that symbolically bestows good fortune on our newest ship.
The Make-A-Wish godchildren will play a very special part in the christening of the Disney Wish, which you can watch live on June 29, 2022, at 11 a.m. ET right here on the Disney Parks Blog!
Our godchildren will join the fleet’s magical group of godmothers including Patty Disney, Tinker Bell, Jennifer Hudson and Mariah Carey.
Disney Cruise Line also continues to support the transformative work that wish-granting organizations do every day through other initiatives including a new merchandise collection and the donation of a stateroom aboard a sailing of the Disney Wish.
In celebration of the Disney Wish and the incredible power of wishes, we partnered with Make-A-Wish to create an exclusive line of merchandise that includes a Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse plush, ear headband, trading pin, spirit jersey and tumbler.
Disney will donate 10% of the purchase price from the sale of every item in the Disney Wish Limited Edition Collection now through July 18, 2023, to Make-A-Wish to grant even more life-changing wishes. The full Disney Wish Limited Edition Collection is available aboard the Disney Wish, and select items are available on shopDisney.com, beginning July 18, 2022.
Disney Cruise Line also donated a stateroom aboard a sailing of the Disney Wish, an initiative that raised more than $260,000. Proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish and Give Kids The World Village, a nonprofit resort in Central Florida that provides children with critical illnesses and their families from around the world with magical week-long wish vacations at no cost.
Our newest ship is simply brimming with a grand sense of wonder and optimism, and we couldn’t be prouder to celebrate all Make-A-Wish children as our godchildren.
