We’ve been following all of the latest updates on the Disney Wish and sharing that news with you. From news about the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique coming to the ship, to updates about 2 stage shows cruisers will get to enjoy, and a look at Disney’s first ever attraction at sea, the AquaMouse — there’s a LOT to look forward to! But just what’s going on with the Disney Wish right now? We just got another update on the ship and how it’s one step closer to setting sail!

According to (powered by News 6), the Disney Wish recently got approved to arrive at Port Canaveral in Florida, and will be arriving on June 20th! During a meeting of the Port Canaveral commissioners, they unanimously approved 3 days of special events for the Disney Wish. That will all start with the ship’s arrival on June 20th. It’s set to arrive between 4AM and 7AM.

This arrival is only a few weeks before the ship is set to make its maiden voyage on July 14th.

When the Disney Wish arrives at Port Canaveral, it will have a christening on June 29th. There will be rehearsal events in the week leading up to it (from June 16th-28th). As part of some of the special events taking place, a memo showed that some leaders will be installing “technical and structural elements at the terminal that include bleachers, stage, audio towers, light towers, video walls, generators, tents, and special effects.”

Following the christening, there will be a cruise for news media and select other guests.

  1. Yes!!! My husband is getting a surprise birthday in December on the Disney Wish. I can’t wait either as it’s been 20 years since I took my then 8 year old on the Disney Wonder and had a blast. The customer service was incredible!
