Disney Wish cabins - what you need to know (1)

We're told that the theme of Disney Wish is magic and this is certainly reflected in the subtle yet magical design of the cabins. Disney Wish cabins were inspired by classic Disney adventures.

Custom artwork, plush bedding, light wood tones and stunning bathroom designs make these cabins beautiful and relaxing.

How many Disney Wish cabins are there?

Disney Wish cabins - what you need to know (2)

We now know how many of each type of cabin there will be on Disney Wish.

As expected, the vast majority of Disney Wish cabins are located outside the cabins. This has been a trend in the industry for some time.

Very few interior cabins are available - only 10% of the total.

We can also see that Disney has dramatically increased the number of Concierge cabins to a total of 76.

  • 1254 cabins (includes 53 concierge cabins and 23 concierge suites)
  • 1,133 outdoor cabins (90%)
    • 948 veranda cabin (70%)
    • 185 cabins with sea view (20%)
  • 121 interior cabins (10%)

Within each of these categories, there will be a number of wheelchair accessible as well as a larger number of communication booths.

Disney Wish Standard Inside Cabins

There are only 121 interior staterooms on the Disney Wish. It looks like it will still have the virtual pane feature - but it will be larger than on the Fantasy and Dream.

The standard interior cabin will have 169 square feet of space. Each cabin can sleep 3 or 4 people.

Unlike other Disney cruise ships, Wish has only one type of interior cabin. The others have Standard and Deluxe. Deluxe usually means a shared bathroom.

However, it appears that almost all cabins on the Disney Wish will have a separate bathroom - so there is no need to have more than one category of inside cabin.

Disney Wish Inside Staterooms will be categories 11A, 11B and 11C.

Category 11A cabins are located on decks 9, 10 and 11. Category 11B cabins are located on decks 6, 7 and 8.

Cabins 11C will be on Deck 2. These cabins will be particularly suitable for the Oceaneer Club and It's A Small World Nursery.

They are also just steps away from the Walt Disney Theater.

It will be interesting to see if guests experience more noise in these cabins.

I'm sure Disney will use the most advanced technology to ensure this doesn't happen - but I suspect this is what we'll hear about as the deck 2 cabin shortcoming.

Some guests will love them for their convenience. Others will just avoid them!

Disney Wish Deluxe Ocean View Cabin

Disney Wish cabins - what you need to know (9)

There will be a total of 185 ocean view cabins. These are likely to be in high demand as they offer exterior views, but will usually be priced lower than verandah cabins.

Like the inside cabins, there is only one category of outside cabins - Deluxe Oceanview. Each will have 213 square meters of space.

Disney Cruise cabins are known to be larger than the industry standard. They also have such a beautiful design that they feel even more spacious.

As we can see from this Disney concept art, the cabins are beautifully decorated in a Cinderella theme.

Disney Wish cabins - what you need to know (10)

All external cabins will be classified as category 9 and each will have a letter indicating their place in that category.

There are only 4 Category 9A staterooms on Disney Wish. They are 7008, 8008, 7506 and 8506.

There are 60 Category 9B staterooms and they are all located on Deck 2. Some will like them because they are so close to the Oceaneers Club and the nursery. Others will avoid them for exactly the same reason!

There are only 9 cabins of category 9C. 7006, 7504, 8000, 8002, 8004, 8006, 8500, 8502 and 8504.

7006, 8006, 7504 and 8504 are particularly large because they are located at the bow corner of the ship. This probably means that they have an interesting design and will be in high demand.

On deck 7 there are 7 cabins of category 9D. They are 6000, 6002, 6004, 6006, 6500, 6502 and 6504. On deck 7 they are 7000, 7002, 7004, 7500 and 7500.

It's hard to tell from the concept art how big the openings are. We're told Category 9d will have angled windows, so it's unlikely you'll be able to sit in them.

However, I imagine there will be just as many on the Disney Fantasy and Dream, where you can sit in the window. Well, you can anyway if you're under a certain size!

Each stateroom will have a 43" television. For those of us familiar with other Disney ships, you will notice that the location of the television has changed.

On the Disney Wonder, Magic, Dream and Fantasy, the television is on the corner of the bookcase.

This means that you can easily watch TV from both the bedroom and the living room. Since television will be significantly larger, I'm sure this will continue to be the case on Disney Wish.

All cabins have a beautiful heavy curtain that can divide the living and sleeping areas.

Deluxe ocean view cabin with veranda

There are 948 veranda cabins on Disney Wish. Some of them are Deluxe cabins with ocean view and veranda.

Each accommodates 3 or 4 people and has 243 square meters of space.

Disney Wish cabins - what you need to know (12)

There is plenty of storage space in all Disney Wish cabins. You can see in the picture above that there is plenty of space under the bed, this is ideal for storing large items such as suitcases.

As with other Disney ships, you do not need to bring your own hair dryer as there will be one in every cabin. This will be in one of the drawers you can see above.

What I like is that in that place the television is replaced by a light-up mirror. It's great to see a more thoughtfully designed dedicated toilet space.

I like that the chair now has no back, so it can be easily put away.

These Deluxe Family Ocean View Cabins with Balcony are likely to be one of the most popular. They provide additional space, but most importantly, they can accommodate up to 5 guests.

They have 284 square meters of space, not including the veranda.

If you look closely at the photo above, you can see a folding Murphy bed on the right. This bed is for the 5th person and will be set up in the evening by your cabin attendant.

This is a good design because it makes excellent use of space during the day. The only downside is that if you want to get out on the porch before the person gets up in the morning, you literally have to climb over them!

Disney Cruise Line messages

One of those things that you really have to experience at least once in your life is sleeping in a bed on a Disney Cruise ship! They are simply the best.

Most Disney Wish cabin beds are queens (except in Concierge where you want a king).

Many Disney Wish cabins can accommodate up to 4 guests. All cabins have a sofa bed, so that a third guest can be accommodated.

But if your cabin has room for 4 people, then it will have an upper berth. When you get to your cabin, you might wonder where it is! Your cabin attendant will pull the bunk from the ceiling each night when he fills your room for the night.

A particularly nice feature on Disney Wish is this Fairy Godmother light above the bunk bed. Make sure to keep the little ones mesmerized for a while.

Bathrooms in Disney Wish cabins
