It looks like my wish is coming true today because I have another magical merchandise preview for you! This is a first look at concept art for the exclusive artist collection coming to the Disney Wish designed by fan-favorite artist Ashley Taylor. Inspired by the beautiful bronze statue of Cinderella in the ship’s Grand Hall, this dazzling design will appear on an enchanting handbag, apparel, coasters and more!
Cinderella’s story is full of enchanting pumpkins, glass slippers and happily ever afters. Now guests can take home a piece of the magic that will last long past midnight!
From one Ashley to another, artist Ashley Taylor shared the inspiration behind her design with me. “Cinderella is one of my favorite Disney princesses! For this collection, I wanted to capture the dreaminess of the song ‘A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes.’” She describes the art as, “Cinderella catching a wishing star and making a wish in the Grand Hall.”
“I hope these pieces inspire guests to keep wishing, believing and dreaming,” Taylor shared.
That sounds pretty enchanting to me! I look forward to wishing, believing and dreaming along with our guests when the Disney Wish sets sail next month.
After years of taking kids and Grandkids to DL & WDW…wife and I decided to take our 1st Disney Cruise. We booked the Wonder from Galveston to San Juan in January 2020 and you were the Cruise Director. We both fell in love with DCL and you had a big part of it. Unable to dock in Jamaica, you put together events for everyone to enjoy and that night with headwinds at 45 knots, you were there to greet all of us. We are about to take our 4th cruise on our 4th ship. The WBTA on the Magic. Our 5th Cruise will on the Wish and hopefully you’ll be there too. Until we meet again
Dear Ashley Long,
This will be the best merchandise I’ve ever seen onboard the newest ship the Disney Wish, and I’m looking forward meeting you someday in person, when I become a platinum castaway club member and sail on her. I know you’ll make wishes come true for all guests that’ll last a lifetime.
From, Monique Abrams
We may need to leave quite a bit of room in our suitcase for all our ‘Pieces of the Magic’ 😍
