Captain Minnie Mouse Celebrates Huge Construction Milestone Today


Disney Parks Blog just shared with us some very exciting news about the Disney Wish.

“Captain Minnie Mouse is already making wishes come true for our newest ship! Today we unveiled that this beloved character will come to life for the first time through whimsical artwork on the bow of the Disney Wish.”

“The bow’s elegant filigree art, a hallmark of Disney Cruise Line vessels, includes an intricate scrollwork pattern reminiscent of the classic ocean liners of the 1930s. And the portrait of Captain Minnie on the Disney Wish adds just the right amount of Disney whimsy to the design!”

Construction Milestone: Keel Laying Ceremony

“The magic of Captain Minnie also came alive today as we reached a significant construction milestone for the Disney Wish marked by the traditional keel laying ceremony. During a ship’s construction, when the first block, or section of a ship, is lowered into the building dock, a newly minted coin is placed under the keel for good fortune. The coin created for the Disney Wish features none other than … you guessed it, Captain Minnie!”

“Our newest captain (in her bold red jacket!) made her splash aboard our ships in 2019 as part of a collection of initiatives aiming to inspire the next generation of female leaders in the cruise industry. And with Captain Minnie at the helm of the Disney Wish, our hope is to continue inspiring girls and young women around the globe!”

Are you ready for details about the Disney Wish? Well, you didn’t hear it from me, but big news is on the horizon. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog so you don’t miss it!”

More to Come

I am super excited to see what the Disney Wish has to offer. Additionally, the “big news is on the horizon”, I am assume is the “Once Upon A Disney Wish” event. We previously shared some details on this event that were shared by various travel agencies.
