3 of My Favorite Things From the Disney Wish Christening Ceremony

The christening ceremony of the Disney Desire took spot Wednesday early morning in Port Canaveral, FL and I watched the are living stream alongside with 1000’s of other Disney Cruise Line admirers. It’s been ten yrs given that a brand new Disney ship was christened!

The ship was carefully anchored absent from the dock and at an angle so a crystal clear see could be had by those people who viewed. The stage was shiny and whimsical with a much larger-than-daily life storybook history.

The primary Disney Cruise Line song – Collectively We Set Sail – was sung alongside with Captain Mickey Mouse and Captain Minnie Mouse on phase. It was lovable and I like that this music was designed primarily for the Disney Would like. We originally heard the track when Jordan Fisher sang it in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in 2021.

Throughout the ceremony, we acquired confirmation from Josh D’Amaro, Chairman, Disney Parks, Activities, and Merchandise, that two a lot more Disney ships are nevertheless coming along with a second spot in The Bahamas. I really do not know about any of you, but I’d wondered if the two new ships were being nonetheless likely to be taking place any time soon after the craziness with COVID the past few of many years. While no timeline was shared on when we can count on to see any of these issues, we’re energized by the prospect.

3 Make-A-Would like little ones were selected to be the Ambassadors at the christening ceremony and looking at their exhilaration was just the sweetest factor at any time. Jenna from Sacramento, CA is 13, Megan from Brookfield, WI is 16, and Colby from Lexington, MA is 10. The performance that took put just after we discovered who the Ambassadors ended up was so excellent. It was a mash-up of different music from Disney movies this sort of as Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Moana sung by different performers who have been onstage. Just superb and so entertaining!

Anika Noni Rose was invited onstage upcoming and she did a are living general performance of When You Wish On A Star which was this sort of a special take care of! Right after she completed, a entire bunch of Disney people begun getting into the stage. When I say a bunch, I actually signify it.

The greatest aspect, in my feeling, about this particular presentation is that it was just the appropriate size of time to not go away me experience like it was far too much. From time to time when Disney has a huge to-do, it ends up becoming way way too very long in addition to feeling like a commercial. This was just correct and, in my belief, incredibly satisfying.
