Want to discover everything we know about the Disney Wish staterooms?
Now we have details of these stunning newly designed Disney Wish staterooms.
Disney Wish Staterooms
We were told that the theme of the Disney Wish is enchantment and this is certainly reflected in the subtle but magical design of the staterooms. The Disney Wish staterooms have taken as their inspiration the classic Disney fairytales.
Custom artwork, sumptuous bedding, light wood tones, and stunning bathroom design are all combined to make these staterooms both beautiful and relaxing.
How Many Disney Wish Staterooms Are There?
We now know how many of each type of stateroom there will be on the Disney Wish.
As expected, a very large majority of the Disney Wish staterooms are outside staterooms. This has been an industry-wide trend for some time now.
There are very few inside staterooms available – just 10% of the total.
We can also see that Disney has dramatically increased the number of Concierge Staterooms to a total of 76.
- 1,254 staterooms (includes 53 concierge staterooms and 23 concierge suites)
- 1,133 outside staterooms (90%)
- 948 verandah staterooms (70%)
- 185 oceanview staterooms (20%)
- 121 inside staterooms (10%)
Within each of these categories, there will also be a number of Wheelchair Accessible as well as a larger number of Communication Staterooms.
Disney Wish Standard Inside Staterooms
There are just 121 inside staterooms on the Disney Wish. It seems as though they will still have the Virtual Porthole feature – but that it will be larger than on the Fantasy and the Dream.
The Standard Inside Stateroom will have 169 Square Feet of space. Each stateroom will sleep either 3 or 4 guests.
Unlike the other Disney Cruise ships, the Wish has just one type of Inside Stateroom. The others have Standard and Deluxe. The Deluxe usually denotes the split bathroom.
However, it seems that on the Disney Wish almost all of the staterooms will have a split bathroom – so there is no need to have more than one Category of Inside Stateroom.
Disney Wish Inside Staterooms will be either Category 11A, 11B and 11C.
The Category 11A staterooms are located on Decks 9, 10 and 11. The Category 11B are on Decks 6,7 and 8.
The 11C staterooms will be on Deck 2. These staterooms will be particularly convenient for the Oceaneer Club and It’s A Small World Nursery.
They are also just steps away from the Walt Disney Theatre.
It will be interesting to see if guests experience more noise in these staterooms.
I am sure that Disney will be using the most advanced technology possible to make sure that this doesn’t happen – but my guess is that this is what we will hear is a disadvantage of Deck 2 staterooms.
Some guests will love them for their convenience. Others will just avoid them!
Disney Wish Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom
There will be a total of 185 Oceanview staterooms. These are likely to be highly sought after as they will offer a view to the outside, but will usually be at a lower price point than the verandah staterooms.
Just like the Inside Staterooms, there is only one category of outside stateroom – the Deluxe Oceanview. Each one will offer 213 square feet of space.
The Disney Cruise staterooms are known for being larger than the industry standard. They also have such great design they are made to feel even more spacious.
As we can see from this Disney Concept Art, the staterooms are beautifully decorated with a Cinderella theme.
The Outside staterooms will all be classified as Category 9 and each will have a letter denoting their place within that Category.
There are only 4 Category 9A staterooms on the Disney Wish. These are 7008, 8008, 7506, and 8506.
There are 60 Category 9B staterooms and these are all located on Deck 2. Some are going to love these 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 Category 9C staterooms. 7006, 7504, 8000, 8002, 8004, 8006, 8500, 8502 and 8504.
7006, 8006, 7504, and 8504 are particularly large as they are at the corner on the bow of the ship. This will likely mean that they have an interesting design and will be much sought after.
There are 7 Category 9D staterooms on Deck 7. These are 6000, 6002, 6004, 6006, 6500, 6502, and 6504. On Deck 7 they are 7000, 7002, 7004, 7500, and 7502.
It is difficult to tell from the concept art how large the portholes are. We are told that the Category 9d will have slanted portholes so it’s unlikely you can sit in those.
However, I am guessing they will be as many of them on the Disney Fantasy and Dream where you can sit in the porthole. Well, you can if you are under a certain size anyway!
Each stateroom will have a 43″ television. For those of us who know the other Disney ships well, you can see that the location of the television has changed.
On the Disney Wonder, Magic, Dream, and Fantasy the television is on the corner of the shelving unit.
This makes it so that you can easily see the television from both the bedroom and living areas. As the television will be considerably larger, I am sure this will still be the case on the Disney Wish.
The staterooms all have that wonderful heavy curtain that can divide the living and sleeping areas.
Deluxe Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah
There are 948 Verandah Staterooms on the Disney Wish. Some of these are the Deluxe Oceanview Staterooms with Verandah.
Each sleeps either 3 or 4 guests and has 243 square feet of space.
There is plenty of storage space in all of the Disney Wish staterooms. You can see from the picture above that there is lots of room under the bed, This is ideal to store large items like suitcases.
As with the other Disney ships, no need to supply your own hairdryer as there will be one in each stateroom. This will be located in one of the drawers you can see above.
What I do like is that the television has been replaced with a lighted mirror in that location. That is great to see a more thoughtfully designed dedicated dressing table area.
I like the way that the chair now doesn’t have a back so can easily be stowed away.
Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah
These Deluxe Family Oceanview Staterooms with a balcony are likely to be one of the most popular. They provide extra space, but most importantly they can sleep up to 5 guests.
They have 284 square feet of space, not including the verandah.
The Category 4A Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah will be located on Deck 10 and 11. There will be 66 staterooms of this type on Deck 10 and 50 on Deck 11.
Category 4B Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah will be located on Deck 8 and 9. There are 64 on Deck 8 and 66 on Deck 9.
Category 4C Deluxe Family Oceanview Stateroom with Verandah will have 65 staterooms on Deck 6 and 64 on Deck 7.
Category 4E staterooms are likely to be ones with white wall verandahs or obstructed views – there aren’t many in this category. As will all of these small, probably lower-priced categories, these will most likely be in demand from those guests who don’t mind a small compromise for saving some money.
The 4E staterooms are 6196, 6696, and 6700. On Deck 9 they are 9182 and 9184. On Deck 10 the 4E are 10168, 10170 and 10668
If you look closely at the picture above you can see the pull-down Murphy bed to the right. This bed is for the 5th person and will be set up in the evening by your Stateroom Attendant.
This is a good design as it makes excellent use of the space during the day. The only disadvantage is that if you want to get out on the verandah before that person gets up in the morning you literally have to climb over them!
Disney Cruise Line Beds
One of the things you really have to experience at least once in a lifetime is sleeping in a Disney Cruise ship bed! They are simply the best.
Most of the Disney Wish stateroom beds are a Queen (apart from in Concierge when you will have a King).
The design of the bedding for the Disney Wish is just beautiful. A wonderfully simple design, but to use a cliche, just magical.
Even the lamp has a subtle Mickey design.
It’s also great to see that there are 2 USB ports and power sockets on each side of the bed.
Now just let’s hope that Disney Wish has upgraded internet and better value internet packages!
Disney Wish Stateroom Bunkbed
Many of the Disney Wish staterooms sleep up to 4 guests. There is a sofa bed in all staterooms so that a third guest can be accommodated.
However, if your stateroom sleeps 4 then it will have an upper bunk bed. When you arrive in your stateroom you may wonder where it is! Your stateroom host will pull the bunk down from the ceiling each evening when he makes up your room for the night.
One particularly nice feature on the Disney Wish is this Fairy Godmother lighting above the bunk bed. Sure to keep little ones enchanted for a while.
Disney Wish Stateroom Bathrooms
Most of the Disney Wish staterooms will have the usual split bathroom design which was a Disney Cruise first.
This means that there are two rooms. One has the toilet and a sink, the other has a bath with a shower over and an additional sink.
All of the bathrooms on the Disney Wish will have a bath. This is great news for everyone, but particularly for those with young children.
The Disney Wish bathrooms are beautifully modern with white subway tile, contemporary fittings, and a fabulous lighted mirror.
Of course, they will have the very popular H2O toiletries. They no longer have the individual packs of these – although I confess I may still have one or two still in my bathroom at home.
