The Disney Wish has been sailing for several months now and with a few cruises, we’ve had the chance to find every (or at least almost every) easter egg hidden on the Disney Cruise Line ship. Watch our video of easter eggs below and read on for photos and details.
The Disney Wish
- The unifying theme of the ship is “enchantment”, which is why that was almost the name of the Disney Wish. All three of the new ships will have completely different themes and motifs according to Disney.
- The Forward of the ship is themed to the enchanted woods that may be just outside of a kingdom, while the Aft is meant to represent the kingdom itself with castles and fairytales.
- You’ll find Rapunzel (and Pascal) hanging out on the stern of the ship, putting the finishing touches on the signage. Rapunzel is the first Disney Princess to get the nod of being placed on the stern.
- A way-finding system is embedded in the carpeting. At each landing, you’ll find a sign of where you are. This will materialize with items from Cinderella including a clock tower, a glass slipper, a pumpkin, or the coach. Elsewhere on the ship, you’ll find a castle, an owl, a shell, or the sun icon from Tangled.
- Elevators at the forward feature woodland creatures such as squirrels and rabbits. On the aft, you’ll find iconography from Cinderella such as the pumpkin, the coach, Jaq and Gus, and a helpful bluebird.
- If you visit the Observation Deck, you’ll have your best chance to photograph a giant hidden Mickey formed by the awnings in the outdoor portion of the Senses Spa.
- Pieces in the forward stair halls focus on moments of transformation, while the aft focuses on fantastical locations.
- Found in the forward stairs between decks 3 and 4 is the piece “The Disney Wish Joins the Disney Cruise Line Fleet”, which represents the real journey the ship took from Meyer Werft to Port Canaveral. It was created by Los Angeles-based artist Matteo Marjoram.
- Another original piece by former Imagineer Nikkolas Smith is “Cindys”, a representation of Cinderellas from many different backgrounds, symbolizing how all women can help each other to rise.
- Art representing Sleeping Beauty Castle from Disneyland, Cinderella Castle from the Magic Kingdom, and La Chateau de la Bell Au Bois Dormant from Disneyland Paris can be found in the forward stairwell at the very bottom floor.
- An animated mural of Mickey and the Beanstalk resides between the 1923 dining rooms, featuring moving elements of Mickey and the gang, Willie the Giant, a horse-drawn carriage, and even The Disney Wish sailing by.
The Grand Hall
- The space is designed to feel like you are inside a storybook castle.
- The ceiling above the chandelier features 4 larger stars. The upper 4 represent the other ships in the Disney fleet, while the one at the bottom of the chandelier, the wishing star, represents the Disney Wish.
- The shape of the chandelier is inspired by the magical spiral that encircles Cinderella’s dress as the Fairy Godmother creates it.
- The railings around the hall feature pumpkins in the design.
- Lucifer the cat is lurking just behind the Cinderella statue, trying to catch the mice hiding under her dress.
- Chandeliers on each floor of the atrium feature different accents meaningful in the Cinderella story: a pumpkin, a needle and thread, and her gown.
- At midnight each night, a special lighting and audio show takes place in the Grand Hall, representing the famous moment of the clock striking midnight in the film. On Pirate Night, a totally unique show celebrating Peter Pan takes place.
Enchanted Sword Cafe
- The small bar is themed to “The Sword in the Stone,” as evidenced by the large golden sword on the exterior railing and the carpet mural just steps away.
- Lyrics to “That’s What Makes the World Go Round” from the film can be found on a mirror behind the bar.
Wishing Star Cafe
- The name is derived not only from “Pinocchio,” but also because it offers a clear view of the Wishing Star on the chandelier of the Grand Hall.
- A tiny Jiminy Cricket statue can be found on the end of the bar.
- Tile mosaics of “Pinocchio” characters line the hallways around the bar.
Keg & Compass
- The space is themed to an 1800s sailor’s map room.
- The map on the ceiling features many Disney characters and set pieces near their real-world geographical locations, including:
- Skull Rock and Captain Hook’s Pirate Ship
- Nemo, Dory, Crush, and Squirt
- Moana and Maui not far from Te Ka
- Carl Fredrickson’s Flying House
- Jack Sparrow
- Aladdin and Jasmine on the Magic Carpet
- The map also features important Disney and Disney Cruise Line locations, such as the cities that call Disney theme parks home, Burbank, Port Canaveral, Celebration (where WDWNT calls home), and more.
- Hidden above the bar is the Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea being attacked by a giant squid, along with Ned attempting to free the vessel from the beast.
- The wooden octopuses around the portholes are holding various objects of note: a Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bar, a Dole Whip, a Mickey Pretzel, and one even has gotten a hold of the Disney Wish ship.
- Marc Davis’ art of opera singing Vikings for the Haunted Mansion resides on one wall.
- A wooden compass displays the coordinates of the Meyer Werft shipyard where the Disney Wish was built, while a wooden plank has the location of Port Canaveral.
- The names of the two lead Imagineers on the interior spaces of the Disney Wish can be found on the faux map drawers and suitcases under the bar.
- There is a wooden plaque that reads “You are not the first to pass this way, nor shall you be the last.” This quote is of course from the lift hill scene of EPCOT’s Maelstrom attraction which was located in the Norway Pavilion. There is also a Maelstrom Stout on the menu.
- The theater is named after the 2011 Pixar short “La Luna,” which was shown before “Brave” in theaters.
- Characters including Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, Wall-E, Eve, Jimmy Cricket, and Mufasa are hiding in constellations in the ceiling of the venue.
- In the halls outside of the Oceaneer Club are murals representing many of the areas inside. Around the slide from the Grand Hall are scenes from “Alice in Wonderland.” In the Marvel section, you’ll find a cutesy version of Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure. The Star Wars section depicts Chewbacca & R2-D2 dealing with a Porg infestation, while C-3P0 and BB-8 sit outside cages for all sorts of Star Wars creatures. Down the hall you’ll find Frozen, some of Mickey and Friends with a Disney Cruise Line shop, and of course, a representation of “it’s a small world.”
Walt Disney Imagineering Lab
- Concept art and such for many items on the ship can be found hanging on the walls. One glass case contains art and maquettes for the Toy Story Splash Zone water play area, while another has a model of the Disney Wish.
- Hard hats represent Imagineers who worked on the ship, even featuring their names.
- Maquettes and displays from various Disney Parks attractions can be found including a Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind ride vehicle, Lightning McQueen, the Hollywood Tower Hotel icon, laugh canisters from Monsters Inc., Maui from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, a Dumbo the Flying Elephant vehicle, giant gems from the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, the dedication plaque from Disneyland and a microphone representing the one Walt used, a Big Thunder Mountain logo plaque, a TRON Lightcycle Run vehicle, a Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure vehicle, the disappearing/reappearing butterfly from the latest iteration of Journey Into Imagination at EPCOT, and a maquette of the 1st Figment animatronic from the original Journey Into Imagination attraction.
- Some of the displays simply have merchandise items guests could buy at the various locations worldwide, like a Spider-Bot toy from Avengers Campus, the music box from Mystic Manor in Hong Kong Disneyland, and even the recently released 50th anniversary figure of Peg Leg Pete from Pirates of the Caribbean at Walt Disney World (they simply painted over the WDW 50th base).
- The largest display is that of a 3-D printed Cinderella Castle in a glass case.
- In a “Prop Shop” cage in the next room, guests will find an actual costume from the former Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom; trash can plaques from World Showcase, Tomorrowland 1994, and Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom; a light-up model of the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror; cherry blossoms from the Takumi Tei restaurant in EPCOT; a headdress from Festival of the Lion King; a Dapper Dan’s hat; a hat belonging to a Country Bear Jamboree audio-animatronic; a candle from the queue of Expedition Everest; a vintage 1971 Walt Disney World lunchbox; an alebrije from the Mexico pavilion; a maquette of a Hitchhiking Ghost; a patch from the Tokyo Disneyland version of the Country Bear Jamboree Vacation Hoedown; a MuppetVision 3D mug (sold at last year’s Destination D23 even in the Mickey’s of Glendale store); and Auf Wiedersehen and Kwahali goodbye signs form “it’s a small world.”
- Stickers on a large toolbox include some given out by cast members at Hong Kong Disneyland, some from Shanghai, a Skyway poster button, as well as stickers for Carousel of Progress, Wilderness Lodge, the Cozy Cone Motel, Disneyland, Disney Cruise Line, and even one reading “One Little Spark.”
“it’s a small world” Nursery
- The art is inspired by the “it’s a small world” attraction (drawn by Joey Chou) and incorporates Disney characters into each region as most of the rides around the world have done. Some are actually represented in “it’s a small world” versions around the world, like Peter Pan characters in England or Marie from the Aristocats in France. However, some are major departures, such as characters from Luca in Italy, Remy in France, an entire Wakanda section, Coco in Mexico, Mirabel and the Encanto in South America, and an America section that features Spider-Man in New York City, Cars characters along Route 66, and characters from The Princess and the Frog. There’s even a Raya and the Last Dragon section in Asia. The bathroom fittingly is Under the Sea with characters from The Little Mermaid and Finding Nemo. There’s also a Serka Song deal like you would find used at Expedition Everest.
- A light-up mobile features icons from Pixar, including the Luxo ball at the center.
- There are clocks on the wall displaying the time in Anaheim, Paris, Orlando, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.
Mickey and Minnie Captain’s Deck
- A map in the playroom features the world with all 6 Disney castles. There are also 6 Disney Cruise ships, which is currently an incorrect number. There will eventually be 6 ships in the fleet, but when the Triton class is complete, there will actually be 7 total.
- Above the 3 rooms is a ceiling of stars along with lighted constellations representing the three films: a snowflake for Frozen, the sun icon for Tangled, and a rose for Beauty and the Beast.
- In the Rapunzel room, eagle-eyed guests will spot a Pascal statue, one of the same that hides by the stream in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom.
- Some wooden ducks reside on a shelf, representing The Snuggly Duckling tavern.
- Of course, the painting on the walls matches many that Rapunzel painted in the film.
- The wardrobe is the same one Rapunzel briefly locks Flynn Rider in.
- The clock in this room is permanently set to 11:10, the release month and year of “Tangled.”
- In the “Frozen” section, the clock is set to 11:13 for its release date.
- In Belle’s Library, some of the art is from the Be Our Guest Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom, specifically from the Rose Gallery, which was a new room of the castle created just for that venue.
Star Wars Cargo Bay
- A creature in a case from Oga’s Cantina has found its way into this space, as had the Dianoga monster in the water tank that you’ll find on Batuu. Here, guests can crank a lever and raise the beast from its slumber.
- The sleepy Loth Cat from Batuu is also here.
- Unique to this space is an audio-animatronic Porg in a cage.
Marvel Super Hero Academy
- On display, you’ll find Captain America’s suit, Black Widow’s suit, Wakandan tech, and even some Pym Labs experiments.
- In the Pym Labs area, you’ll find a note that reads “WATCH OUT FOR THESE!” The creature drawn on the note is from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Nano Battle at Hong Kong Disneyland.

- Scott Lang has left his “Key to the World” card at his desk.
- The “World’s Greatest Grandma” award that Cassie gives to Scott in the MCU is on the desk as well.

Worlds of Marvel: Quantum Encounter
- The reliefs on either side of the entrance feature several different Avengers
- The Avengers Technology Showcase sign features logos for WEB and PYM Technologies from Avengers Campus.
- The presentation from Ant-Man and the Wasp is called “Miracles from Molecules,” which happens to be the name of the theme song from Disneyland’s Adventures Through Innerspace attraction which opened in 1967 in Tomorrowland. Fittingly enough, the ride was about shrinking guests down to visit the inside of a snowflake.
- Captain Marvel references a “date with some Kree warheads” when she departs from the fight. This references Avengers Assemble: Flight Force at Disneyland Paris which is taking place at the same exact time according to the Disney Parks Marvel universe.
- The Quantum Core Sipper has the number 62 on it, a reference to the year Ant-Man first appeared in Marvel Comics, 1962.
- The menu features Wakandan versions of recognizable Coco-Cola soft drink logos, but you can also bring home an “enlarged” Coke Zero version as a souvenir cup.
- Illuminating wall panels in the space feature an Avengers logo in the center, but icons representing many of the individual heroes are connected to it on what looks like a circuit board.
Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure
- Characters from Frozen 1 & 2 line the halls leading to the dining room, followed by paintings that appeared in the first film during Anna’s singing of “For the First Time in Forever.” Hang in there, Joan!
- A replica of the clock where young Anna “watches the hours tick by” is also in the hallway.
- The dining room is supposedly inside the castle in the kingdom of Arendelle.
- Elsa’s “conceal, don’t feel” gloves and a toy from her childhood are on a shelf on the right side of the dining room.

- The menu features a group of cocktails called the Maelstrom Trio, a reference to the EPCOT attraction replaced by Frozen Ever After.
- The party is catered by Wandering Oaken’s Hearty Party Planning Services.
- Obviously, the name is inspired by the year the Walt Disney Company was founded.
- The space is meant to evoke golden age Hollywood dining, such as at Musso & Frank or the Frolic Room.

- The art, maquettes, and more on display celebrate the 100-year journey of Walt Disney animation.
- Featured films include Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Beauty & The Beast, Frozen, and Moana.

- A “RRR” decal can be found, this of course being the logo of the Runamuck Railroad from Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
Star Wars Hyperspace Lounge
- Guests go under a metallic gold-lined archway into a dark antechamber. Senior Creative Director Danny Handke described this as a “palette cleanser” before guests step through airlock doors into the lounge.

- The signage and logo are sintered by the typeface on the original Cinderella movie poster.

- Areas on the ship are either motif spaces or story spaces: they either take you into a particular story like Worlds of Marvel and Arendelle, or they represent a motif, like Nightingale’s. Cove Cafe has a motif that is reminiscent of “Moana,” but there are no overt “Moana” references, nor details that tell you of a particular place and time.
- The space is named for Walt Disney’s early childhood hometown in Missouri.

Fairytale Fresh Laundry
- Seeing as though woodland creatures have helped many a Disney princess with their clothing, the laundry facility is located in the “woods.” Characters from “Bambi” can be found inside, including Flower the skunk as the mascot for the Soap Center.
Inside Out Joyful Sweets
- This space reuses statues and posters from the Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind attraction at Disney California Adventure.
Mickey and Friends Festival of Foods
- This entire area is themed to the most recent Mickey Mouse shorts, so many of the service windows look like sets straight out of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
- The cover on a napkin holder has what looks like a hole in it where some creatures are peering through.
