What does Disney’s great new cruise ship offer and others don’t? Thetrying different things to attract tourists of all ages and types.
The boat has the first Disney ride on board for those looking for excitement; The Avengers fight at dinner for Marvel’s stubborn; STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) activities in their children’s club for education-conscious parents; an impressive Star Wars salon for galactic travelers; and personalized adventures on passenger phones for anyone who wants to have fun from the moment they step on board.
As people plan to go on their first big vacation after years of a pandemic, they are looking for the best way to spend their money.
Disney invited me to check out his latest cruise ship earlier, before leaving on July 14 with passengers. Check out all the information and photos at a glance below, with tips on whether to spend your precious vacation time and dollars on this experience – and it’s an experience.
First ride on the sea: Is it different from an ordinary water slide?
AquaMouse has been announced as Disney’s first cruise ship ride. At first glance it looks like any old water slide found on any cruise ship in the world, so what’s the difference?
For starters, don’t just jump on a slide. You board a driving vehicle – a raft that can accommodate up to two people – on a conveyor belt that takes you to the first part of the ride.
The slide show contains two original short features of Mickey Mouse. One called Scuba Scramble is a diving adventure, and Swiss Meltdown is a ski adventure set in the Alps.
This 760-foot water slide also has light, audio and water effects before it turns into a water slide.
The AquaMouse revolves around the upper deck and through one of the towers and takes almost two minutes to travel. It needs a height of 42 inches, or 48 to be able to ride a raft on its own.
Immersive dining across Arendelle and Wakanda: How does Disney provide unique experiences?
Disney vacation is no longer just a visit to the characters. It’s also about getting you into action with those characters.
Disney Wish travelers will get two unique experiences when it comes to dining. Arendelle is a banquet hall with a Frozen theme, and Worlds of Marvel is a Avengers-themed restaurant.
In scenes featuring real actors from Marvel movies and TV shows, guests at Worlds of Marvel will experience an exhibition of Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) as they guide you through the latest technology from Pyma, Stark Industries. and more.
There will be a live broadcast from the Avengers Academy at the kids’ club, where Black Panther and Spider-Man will appear as part of the show.
Ultron will show up, leading to the final battle that takes place on the deck of a ship that is “live streamed” to a restaurant while Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani), Captain America (Anthony Mackie) and Marvel Captain (Brie Larson) fight. Guests will have to use devices with a quantum core on their tables to help defeat Ultron.
At the Worlds of Marvel gastronomic experience, you will be served African food representing Wakanda and Eastern European cuisine as a homage to Sokovii, as well as food options from New York, where the Avengers are headquartered.
Over in Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure, a more fairytale-like story takes place in the palace’s stylings. The story begins right after Frozen 2 is over, and during your meal there is a theatrical performance while Olaf and Elsa prepare an engagement celebration for Anna and Kristoff.
The restaurant will serve Nordic-influenced food, and the band will perform Nordic versions of Frozen songs between streams.
Both Arendelle and Marvel are included as two of the three evenings you’ve allotted (the third restaurant is 1923, which is filled with concepts from Disney movies with themes of the Hollywood experience of the 1920s).
If you want to dine in peace without interaction or performance, you can also book three exclusive restaurants for adults inspired by Beauty and the Beast: The Rose lounge; Palo Steakhouse, with a theme inspired by Cogsworth; and Enchanté, with Lumiere-inspired décor.
STEAM activities: What sets Disney Kids Club apart?
Disney’s Oceaneer Club isn’t just an arts and crafts club or a swimming lesson for boring kids whose parents need a break. It has a superhero academy, a Star Wars adventure, a storytelling hall, a Mickey playground and a mini science, technology, engineering, art and math class (STEAM) with imagineering activities such as designing your own slide and learning the secrets behind the famous Disney rides and special effects.
A journey into Star Wars will see children learn how to feed, track and care for creatures from movies such as Pig, Loth-cat and Worrt, using AR on tablets. It will also turn into a complete adventure as the children help Rey and Chewbacca escape as blind travelers and fight the villains to help the Resistance.
Marvel Super Hero Academy will see children join training sessions with Ant-Man and Wasp, where they will learn how to create and test Pym particles to grow and shrink objects and people. The Black Panther will help them defeat a villain who is trying to break into the academy system to steal technology from Wakanda.
Anna and Elsa will play with the children, Belle will write new stories with them, Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder will take them on a scavenger hunt, and Captain Minnie will guide the children on the playground through games, dances, exercises and STEAM-based mental stimulation .
Children between the ages of 3 and 12 are allowed (small children can attend It’s A Small World Kindergarten at an additional cost, and there are rest areas for teenagers and teenagers).
Personalized experiences: How long will you need to be connected to your phone?
After launchan impressive three-day adventure that is more than that Unlike staying at a hotel, Disney doesn’t shy away from personalized device-driven storytelling. That doubles.
Disney Uncharted Adventure is an interactive story about Disney Wish in which augmented reality is used over guests ’phones. The story follows the disappearance of a Disney star of desire as guests are asked to help her find across the ship and through the worlds of Peter Pan, Moana, the Princess and the Frog and In Search of Nemo – which are all water movies, whether it’s a lagoon mermaid , oceans or bay. It’s a customizable adventure quest, choose for yourself so you can choose which world to visit first and how to deal with obstacles.
Although not as intense as the Galactic Starcruiser, which has Star Wars-themed missions and moments almost every hour of the day, it drives guests who want to participate.
Playing the whole thing from start to finish only takes a few hours, but the idea is to fit between the activity and the meal so it takes the whole cruise. The adventure lives all over the ship – your phone will communicate with screens, pictures and objects. The props on board will light up or react in different ways when you complete nearby tasks on your phone.
The adventure will involve solving puzzles, completing side quests, and then fighting Ursula as the conclusion of the cruise. You can connect up to six devices to play together or alone.
In addition to Uncharted Adventure, Disney’s Navigator app is a must for sailing on Disney Wish. Similar to how apps are used to book rides, shows and entry to attractions at Disneyland and Disney World, the app will require you to see your personal schedule, set reminders of activities you want to do when and make reservations.
