Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, will feature Disney’s first-ever attraction at sea. To build excitement for the ship’s debut in 2022, Disney has released new details on the AquaMouse attraction.
The AquaMouse is a 760-foot slide that’s a fun spin on the AquaDuck slide that’s enjoyed on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. The ride will include lighting effects, screens and, of course, water effects.
Below is Disney’s summary of the story guests will experience on the AquaMouse.
The journey will begin when you board a two-seater ride vehicles and ascend into a magical tunnel that will teleport you into the cartoon world of “Scuba Scramble,” a new animated short that plays out through oversized virtual portholes. Along the way, you’ll encounter curious sea creatures, familiar Disney friends and more than 60 water effects that bring the subaquatic hijinks to life – all perfectly synched to an original musical score by Emmy-nominated composer Christopher Willis (“The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse”).
A water slide taking place inside a Mickey Mouse cartoon sounds like a twist on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. A twist where you’ll get soaked.
Stop reading now if you want to be surprised about what happens next on the AquaMouse.
At the height of the show, you’ll blast out of the tunnel and embark on a wild water ride around the upper decks. First, you’ll zip into the forward funnel through an enclosed tube surrounded by dazzling lighting effects, followed by a quick dash through a dark tunnel that opens up to reveal breathtaking views of the ocean.
You’ll then jet up and down a series of speed blasters as they are propelled toward the grand finale: a soaring loop over the edge of the ship, with clear views down to the deep blue sea. With that, you’ll splash down for a sendoff message from Mickey and Minnie – another successful tour in the books!
Sounds fun to us! We’re glad views of the ocean are incorporated into the AquaMouse as it’s one of the best parts of the AquaDuck water slide. Disney did not mention how long the ride will last or how guests will queue for what will be a very popular activity on the Disney Wish.
While we’re enjoying the details Disney is releasing about the Disney Wish, we’re still waiting to learn more about the adults-only areas on the ship. So far, only one lounge (Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge) has been revealed and the deck plans don’t have much room for an area like The District on the Disney Dream or Europa on the Disney Fantasy.
It also appears the adults-only area on the deck is smaller compared to the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy due to the concierge deck expanding. We’ll have to wait and see what becomes of the adults-only areas.
Look for more information on the Disney Wish to be revealed in the near future.
