I am getting super excited for the Maiden Voyage of the Disney Wish! Now, Disney has announced new dining options aboard the Disney Wish that have my mouth watering in anticipation.
Disney’s newest ship is a celebration of nearly 100 years of enchanting Disney stories. Filled with one-of-a-kind experiences inspired by Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar adventures, the Disney Wish embodies the spirit of forward-thinking innovation and visionary storytelling heralded by Walt Disney himself.
In fact, Imagineers were so inspired by the creative hallmarks of The Walt Disney Company that they decided to celebrate this legacy in the design of two beautiful dining venues: 1923 and Marceline Market. Personally, I cannot wait to try them both!
1923 Aboard the Disney Wish
Named for the year The Walt Disney Company was founded, 1923 is one of the three main dining venues families will enjoy each night on board the Disney Wish. This elegant restaurant combines classic Hollywood glamour with a dash of Disney whimsy.
This is one of the new restaurants that I am most looking forward to. In fact, I am already planning my outfit! With the theme of Disney history in mind, I plan on wearing my Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Dress Shop dress, along with a few coordinating accessories.
While I will be adorned in Disney style, adorning the walls and ornate glass cases around the restaurant are more than 1,000 drawings, props and other tools of the trade showcasing 16 Disney films that embody the ship’s themes of enchantment and wish fulfillment. Many of these stories also hold a significant role in the history and legacy of the company, such as:
- “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” (1937), the world’s first feature-length animated film ever.
- “Fantasia” (1940), a boundary-pushing project that introduced Fantasound (the precursor to stereophonic sound).
- “Cinderella” (1950), which ushered in a new golden age of animated features.
- “The Little Mermaid” (1989), a generation-defining classic that paved the way for “Beauty and the Beast” (1991), “The Lion King” (1994”) and other animated tales.
Even the menu at 1923 pays tribute to the company’s roots in California. The diverse menu will mirror the region’s unique blend of Asian, European and South American cuisines and a superlative selection of world-famous Napa Valley wines.
Marceline Market Aboard the Disney Wish
Walt’s time in Marceline as a young boy inspired many of the stories he would tell later in life. It’s where he developed a love for animals and steam trains, themes that continue to influence Disney films and theme park attractions. Plus, it’s also the inspiration behind Main Street U.S.A. at Disney parks around the world.
At Marceline Market — guests will enjoy casual, walk-up dining throughout the day. Each of the 10 food stalls is themed to a beloved Disney animated story. Taste from classics such as “Alice in Wonderland” (1951) to more recent films like “Zootopia” (2016). This fun design twist presents favorite characters as honorary “shopkeepers,” offering a wide-ranging variety of freshly prepared cuisines. Options will include American classics, international specialties, comfort foods, seafood, soups and salads, vegetarian and plant-based fare. Oh, and you can’t forget about the baked goods and desserts. Basically, if you can dream it, you can eat it!
I cannot wait to experience all of these new dining options aboard the Disney Wish when it sets sail on July 14th! Of course, you can expect to hear all about the Disney Fashionistas’ adventures, along with plenty of pictures and video. Be sure to follow along on FB and IG @4disneyfashion!
