Disney Cruise Line is set to launch its newest ship, the Disney Treasure, promising to immerse passengers in captivating stories from beloved Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, and Disney Parks adventures yet again. With a mix of new venues and reimagined spaces, the ship will offer guests an unforgettable voyage.
The ship promises a magical experience from bow to stern, with themed spaces and live entertainment inspired by iconic Disney tales such as “Aladdin,” “Coco,” and “Zootopia.”
A sister ship to the Disney Wish
The Disney Treasure is a follow-up to the Disney Wish, which debuted in November 2023. The Treasure will largely resemble its sibling in terms of layout and structure, but Disney has reimagined many areas to fit the theme of adventure on the Treasure.
Grand Hall is themed around Aladdin
The Grand Hall is the heart of the ship, spanning three decks in the middle. It’s where guests first board and the home for many character meet and greets and activities throughout the sailing.
On the Disney Wish, this space was themed after Cinderella and her castle complete with a large, gold statue of Cinderella. On the Treasure, the Grand Hall is themed after the palace of Agrabah from Aladdin. The space seems much darker and more mysterious than the one on the Wish. In the center, guests will find a large statue of Aladdin and Jasmine on a magic carpet.
Right off the Grand Hall are two walk-up cafes, Heihei Café and Jade Cricket Café, which draw inspiration from Disney Princesses Moana and Mulan.
Plaza de Coco will replace Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure
The Disney Treasure will have a new dining room at the back of Deck 5 called Plaza de Coco, replacing the Arendelle dining room on the Disney Wish. This restaurant and theater in the round is themed after the movie Coco. The restaurant will feature modern takes on traditional Mexican dishes.
Plaza de Coco is part of Disney’s rotational dining menu, meaning guests will eat here twice on their visit. On the first night, the story will pick up where the movie Coco left off, with Miguel and his family providing a musical experience that celebrates families and togetherness. On the second night, Miguel will celebrate Dia de los Muertos by bringing his great-great-grandparents to celebrate.
Periscope Pub replaces Keg & Compass
The Periscope Pub is a new bar that is themed after the 1954 Disney film, “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.” It replaces the Keg & Compass on the Disney Wish. The space resembles a submarine interior and uses projections, polished metal, and nautical decorations to give it a unique feel. A large window/video screen completes the illusion. It feels like a modern taken on the original Disneyworld ride.
Skipper Society replaces The Bayou
On Deck 3, the Disney Treasure has a new lounge experience themed after the classic Jungle Cruise ride. It is where The Bayou is on the Disney Wish. This space is filled with fun nods to the ride, such as a monkey-shaped chandelier and postcards from places in the attraction. Here, dry-witted “skippers” will serve guests light snacks and themed cocktails.
Sarabi replaces Luna
Sarabi is a hub of activity throughout the cruise and home to live music performances, game shows, and more. It takes the space where Luna is on the Disney Wish. Sarabi, named after the mother from The Lion King, is themed after the open savanna in Africa with a distinct look.
AquaMouse water coaster returns
The Disney Treasure will feature its own spin on the AquaMouse water coaster found on the Wish. Called “AquaMouse: Curse of the Golden Egg”, this 750-foot-long tube slide will offer a new storyline that revolves around Mikey and Minnie looking for legendary treasures within an ancient temple.
Returning favorites for the Disney Treasure
The Disney Treasure will, of course, feature many returning favorites.
Two rotational dining venues from the Disney Wish, Worlds of Marvel and 1923, will make a reappearance on the Treasure. Guests will rotate between these two restaurants and the Plaza de Coco throughout the cruise. The Worlds of Marvel offers dishes inspired by Marvel movies like Black Panther in a sci-fi-looking restaurant. 1923 is dedicated to the golden art of animation with California-style cuisine.
Many of the dedicated kids’ spaces will also return to the Treasure. The Oceaneer Club, Edge, Vibe, and It’s a Small World Nursery will return to provide designated spaces for kids to let their imaginations run wild under the guidance of Disney-trained counselors. Like the Disney Wish, the Oceaneer Club will feature spaces like Marvel Super Hero Academy, Star Wars Cargo Bay, and Fairytale Hall. The family0friendly cabin options will also return.
Still some mystery around the Disney Treasure
Two spaces have yet to be released by Disney. These venues will replace Nightingales and Star Wars Hyperspace lounge on the Disney Wish. Disney has said details will be provided for these spaces in the future, but speculation is that one will be themed after the Haunted Mansion.
Disney Treasure will sail from Orlando
The Disney Treasure promises an enchanting voyage for Disney enthusiasts and families, combining the magic of Disney storytelling with the excitement of exploring the high seas.
It’s scheduled for its maiden voyage on December 21, 2024, departing from Port Canaveral, Florida, the Disney Treasure will embark on a seven-night Eastern Caribbean cruise. Following this debut, an inaugural season of seven-night itineraries to the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral will be offered.
