Photo Tour and Deck Plan: Disney Wish

The newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the Disney Wish, took its maiden voyage in July 2022. The Disney Wish is the fifth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet, has 15 decks, 1,254 staterooms, is 1,119 feet in length and weighs 144,000 gross tons. You'll find a Cinderella statue in the Grand Hall and see Rapunzel on the stern.

We'll tour the ship starting from Deck 1 up to Deck 15, going from Aft to Forward. Let's start our photo tour!

Deck 1

Deck 1 is where you'll find the Health Center. It's also where you can exit the ship to board a tender at Ports of Call that require ships to anchor offshore. 

Deck 2

Deck 2 is the home of "it's a small world" nursery which is for children age 12 months to 2 years old. It's important to know that childcare at "it's a small world" nursery is not included in your cruise fare but the Oceaneer Club is included.

Deck 3

Deck 3 is where you will find one of the three main dining restaurants; 1923. The restaurant is actually split in half so you have 1923: Walt Disney on one side and 1923: Roy Disney on the other.

Deck 3 is also where you enter the ship into the gorgeous Grand Hall. The Grand Hall is where you'll find a ton of character meet and greets and entertainment on the Grand Hall Stage. It's also where you can find the Cinderella statue. The Grand Hall is 3 decks high and has balconies on Deck 4 and 5. 
You'll also find the Oceaneer Club Check-In desk in the Grand Hall and the most awesome entrance to the Oceaneer Club ever; a slide! You can check-in your kids at the desk and then they can slide down from Deck 3 to Deck 2 to enter the club. Adults can try out the slide during open house hours and I highly recommend! 
Deck 3 has several shopping locations on the Starboard side; Enchanted Castle Jewels, Royal Regalia, Once Upon a Time and 3 Wishes. Treasures Untold is another shop located on the Port side.
Deck 3 is home to several nightclubs and lounges. Nightingale's and Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge are located on the Port side and The Bayou is located in the middle of Deck 3.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Mythos Restaurant at Universal's Islands of Adventure

Located on The Lost Continent of Universal's Islands of Adventure, Mythos is an award-winning, full-service restaurant that offers an otherworldly experience. If you've ever been to Universal's Islands of Adventure, you've undoubtedly walked by this restaurant with its towering rock formations, waterfalls and ancient figures carved into the side of the building. The restaurant has been calling to me for years and I was finally able to give it a try. When you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've entered a cavernous grotto from another world. There are oceanic and mythical touches throughout the indoor dining room and there's also outdoor seating with great views of the park. View from our table The menu features a mix of Mediterranean, Asian and American cuisine including Spanakopita Dip, Pad Thai and a Bacon Cheeseburger. There's also a kids menu for little ones and a dessert menu featuring Chocolate Banana Gooey Cake.  On our first visit to Mythos, we

Bigfire Restaurant Review

Bigfire is, in my opinion, a great addition to Universal CityWalk at the Universal Orlando Resort. Having been a huge fan of Emeril's which was previously in this location, I was skeptic, but quickly put at ease once we were inside and met our server and have been back several times since. After a full day in the parks, we had a pretty late dinner on the agenda so we started in the lounge attached to the restaurant.  The cocktail selection is quite extensive, with bourbon drinks being the star here. My Manhattan was delicious and set the tone for a great meal ahead! The bar is also a great stop if you don't have a reservation, I found the bartenders friendly, attentive, and making great drinks! The open kitchen is a great feature as you enter the dining room.  The d├ęcor is modern yet cozy with touches of plaid throughout.  The highlight is of course the "big fire", where they wood smoke a variety of meats for the entrees. We started the meal with some wine a
