The Disney Wish Enchanted Showcase Cruise, First Day Onboard

We woke up early, got ready and headed to breakfast back at Rix with friends, it was amazing. This is seriously an underrated gem on Walt Disney World property.

We checked our bags before breakfast and then headed to the buses. We were on one of the first buses to leave around 11:30am, and as exhausted as we were- we were still so excited.

It’s takes about an hour to get to the port from Walt Disney World, maybe a bit longer on a bus. By 12:40pm, we caught our first glimpse of the Disney Wish!

Disembarkation was uneventful, everyone we were traveling with had already tested- so we just needed to show our passports, go through security and head onboard! We were headed into the terminal by 1pm. And who did we did we see once we got up to the terminal?

Ariel herself, Jodi Benson!

We were walking onto the ship just after 1pm…

Honestly, it was super overwhelming when we first got onboard. It is just so different- light, bright, white… very different than what Disney Cruise Line die hards are used to.

Our first objective was to secure a Hyperspace Lounge reservation and then go check out our rooms…

Once we were settled and happy with our new space, we headed to Marcelline Market for lunch, and it was really delicious. Far more upgraded than what we are used to on Disney Cruise Line. Great variety, like you will find at Virgin Voyages’ buffet equivalent space- but far more food here, which makes sense as Disney is catering to families & adults.

After lunch we took some time to explore a bit a stumbled upon …

We were able to explore a bit more, as the Sail Away was cancelled due to rain. So many new spaces and we were really trying to get our bearings as three nights on this huge ship just didn’t seem like enough…

After a drink at the Bayou, we headed back to our stateroom to prepare for dinner, we had a Palo dinner reservation and were really excited to check the newly reimagined Steakhouse out…
