Bookings for the fifth ship to join the Disney fleet will begin in May 2021. 

Disney CEO Bob Chapek says the ship will draw on several beloved Disney characters and worlds as part of its at-sea attractions and dining experiences.

“Guests will be able to explore even more immersive worlds based on beloved Disney stories and characters including Frozen, Star Wars, Marvel superheroes. And of course Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and their pals.”

The ship will feature a water ride called the AquaMouse along with a new Arendelle themed restaurant and Frozen musical dinner theater.

And Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro says the ship will be the first in its fleet to go green.

“The Disney Wish and all the news ships we’re building will run on liquified natural gas. One of the cleanest burning fuels in the marine industry. It’s an important action we’re taking today for a better tomorrow.”

Disney has currently cancelled all of its Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy and Disney Wonder cruises in the US through June 2021. But some shorter UK Disney cruises will set sail this summer.
