A First Look at the Disney Wish: The Grand Hall

We have received a huge team of our workforce at present onboard the brand name-new Disney Wish for a media preview cruise, so we’re having our to start with in-depth glimpses of the diverse spots around the ship. We’ve included The Bayou, Arendelle, and Marceline Industry so much. Let us now take a deep dive into the room where by all attendees start off their Disney Desire voyage: the Grand Hall.

The moniker “atrium” has been dropped for the Wish’s foyer area on the new ship, this place is identified as the Grand Corridor. DCL experienced introduced prior to this media voyage that the place would be a shiny, open up, and airy house with a hint of elegance, and they seem to be to have hit the nail on the head. The three-tale Grand Corridor is an homage to all points pixie dust, princesses, and fairy tales.

Talking of princesses, a bronze statue of Cinderella can be located at the base of the Grand Hall’s massive staircase. You may remember that we had the prospect to see a maquette of the Cinderella statue when it was on display screen inside of Walt Disney Presents at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2021.

And bless his minimal furry coronary heart, Lucifer the cat is perched near the base of the statue just waiting to get his paws on Gus Gus and Jaq.

Cinderella’s glass slipper can be identified within a cloche near the staircase. The great photograph location? For absolutely sure!

The Grand Hall’s tall columns are inset with pixie dust (a.k.a. fiber optics), and the substantial chandelier observed at the middle of the Grand Hall’s ceiling is stuffed with crystals and is concluded off by a significant wishing star at its base.

If you have sailed aboard other Disney Cruise Line ships, you might be accustomed to looking at mid-toned brown wooden finishes in the atrium. The Grand Hall departs from that common and sets the scene for what company will see during the ship with its white walls and light-weight-toned finishes. Also distinct from the other DCL ships, the new area characteristics a stage clad in deep blue velveteen, and a obtaining balcony from which our preferred Disney characters greet people below can be identified on the prime floor of the Corridor.

Friends will obtain ongoing homages to Cinderella in the Grand Hall’s stained glass railings and rich-hued carpet. If you search carefully, you will uncover icons from common Disney motion pictures in the carpeting.

Little ones can just take a curved slide down from the Oceaneers Club Check out-in desk on Deck 3 in the Grand Corridor down to the club alone on Deck 2. The Oceaneers Club slide will become significantly enveloped in whimsical vines à la Alice in Wonderland as the slide tends to make its way down from Deck 3 to Deck 2.

Banquette seating places can be found together the Deck 4 tier of the space.

The Wishing Star Cafe is situated to one side of the Grand Corridor as effectively, and seems like the best spot to sit and sip a minor something.

Which of the Grand Hall’s information do you get pleasure from the most?
