Disney Cruise Line has announced details on a fun feature aboard its upcoming ship, Disney Wish.
One of the vessel’s upper decks will play host to the Toy Story Splash Zone — a water playground featuring Woody, Buzz, and friends reimagined as larger-than-life rubber bath toys that move and spray water.
The water playground is inspired by the Disney and Pixar short “Partysaurus Rex,” and will combine the Old West of Woody’s Roundup with the intergalactic world of Buzz Lightyear.
The splash area will include two toddler-sized slides, pop jets, geysers, and bubblers. The ship will also feature the Slide-a-saurus Rex — a double looping waterslide that sends guests plunging “down the drain” with the rest of the toys with the metaphorical bathtub overflows. The best part? This waterslide is meant for the whole family.
Other features in the little pool district include Trixie’s Falls — a six-inch-deep wading pool with a small fountain and waterfall — and Wheezy’s Freezies, a smoother bar serving refreshing fruit blends that are perfect on a hot, sunny day.
This concept art gives you an idea of how the Toy Story Splash Zone will be laid out.
All the way down on deck 2, kids will find a lot of other activities and spaces created just for them. The Oceaneer Club on Disney Wish will feature three distinctly-themed areas filled with different activities.
- Fairytale Hall — an area that features three different rooms: Rapunzel’s Art Studio, Belle’s Library, and Anna and Elsa’s Sommerhus, where kids can do crafts, participate in storytelling, and hone their icy powers.
- Marvel Super Heroes Academy — a space where young “recruits” will train to be the next generation of super heroes — with some familiar faces helping guide their journey.
- Walt Disney Imagineering Lab — where kids can learn about the secrets of Imagineers and even build their own virtual roller coaster.
Disney Wish is set to debut in June 2022.
