Walt Disney World ® Resort
New Details About Quick-and-Casual Family Dining Aboard the Disney Wish
by Evily Giannopoulos Peros
When the Disney Wish sets sail in summer 2022, families are going to experience the fantastical worlds and beloved characters of Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars stories like never before…and all that adventure is sure to work up an appetite!
We’ve already shared details about the immersive dinner experiences coming to our newest ship — including brand-new details about Worlds of Marvel released just yesterday — and today, I’m excited to give you a little taste of two new quick-and-casual options that will be featured on the upper decks.
Named for Walt Disney’s early childhood hometown in Missouri, Marceline Market is a free-flow food hall inspired by popular marketplaces around the world. Here, you will find an ever-changing menu of specialized offerings that the whole family can enjoy, including American classics, international specialties, comfort foods, seafood, soups and salads, vegetarian and plant-based fare, baked goods, and desserts.
Featuring 10 food stalls and a café-style beverage bar in the center, Marceline Market will be styled as an old industrial loft converted into a bustling marketplace, but with a distinctly Disney design twist: At this food hall, the local proprietors are Disney characters themselves! Each station is themed to beloved animated films such as “Tangled,” “Ratatouille,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Zootopia” and more.
Mickey and Friends Festival of Foods
Located right in the middle of the fun on the upper decks, Mickey and Friends Festival of Foods will be the perfect place to grab a quick bite for lunch, dinner or anytime in between. If you’re an avid Disney cruiser, you’re going to love the mix of fan-favorite treats — like Disney Cruise Line’s signature soft-serve ice cream, of course — with two brand-new selections: the fleet’s first dedicated quick-service venues for barbeque and Mexican-inspired fare. Yum!
Also offering delectable American classics and other snackable goodies, this open-air eatery comprises five uniquely themed food stalls: Mickey’s Smokestack Barbecue, Donald’s Cantina, Daisy’s Pizza Pies, Goofy’s Grill and Sweet Minnie’s Ice Cream. The entire area is inspired by the seaside boardwalk setting featured in popular “Mickey Mouse” animated shorts.
Well, it’s official: You won’t have any trouble finding a delicious meal or snack aboard the Disney Wish… but good luck choosing which to try first!
