A quintessential Disney Cruise Line experience is meeting beloved Disney Characters at sea.  This is something no other cruise line can offer!  On Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, you’ll find ample meet and greet opportunities with your favorite characters.  And don’t forget, meeting Disney Characters is not just for kids, but also kids at heart! 

Kids at heart

Some of the top spots for meeting Disney Characters on the Disney Wish include:

The Grand Hall

Character meets begin from the moment you embark and enter the Grand Hall.   Look up above the stage in the Grand Hall as you walk in.  You’re likely to see Cinderella and Prince Charming , Rapunzel and Flynn  Rider or Princess Tiana and Naveen waving hello to guests as they board.

There are some organic opportunities to meet characters like Captain Minnie or Captain Mickey as soon you board as well – they are often found on the staircases of the Grand Hall during embarkation!

Scheduled meet and greet opportunities in the Grand Hall can typically be found on your Disney Cruise Line Navigator app.  Use the app to plan your activities throughout the day around those characters you wish to meet.  Be on the lookout for Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Chip and Dale and Pluto!

The Grand Hall But Make It Holiday Sailings

Make note on Pirate Night you’ll find your favorite characters adorning pirate costumes!  This is the night where you also might catch Captain Hook and Mr. Smee making appearances!

And if you happen to be booked on a special theme sailing there are even more opportunities!  During Halloween on the High Seas sailings you’ll find your favorites in Halloween costumes. 

And when it’s the most wonderful time of the year, Very Merrytime sailings offer greets with characters decked out in their holiday best!

Olaf’s Royal Picnic

For an upcharge and designed specifically for children ages 3-12,  don’t miss Olaf’s Royal Picnic.  Here, you’ll have the opportunity to have a magical summertime picnic in the Arendelle dining room accompanied with treats, gifts and keepsakes.  And of course what would this picnic be without the opportunity to meet Olaf, Elsa, Anna and Kristoff – the only place on the ship to have one on one time with him!  As a special treat.  Elsa, Anna and Kristoff are in special summertime picnic attire.  This is the only opportunity for a personal meet and greet guests have with Kristoff!

(Note:  For those unable to book Olaf’s Royal Picnic, there is typically a scheduled meet and greet with Anna and Elsa that is available to all guests.  Check your Disney Cruise Line app once onboard  for availability during your specific itinerary)

Character Performances

While not official meet and greets, the Disney Wish features a wide variety of shows and performances featuring your favorite Disney characters.   All your friends come together for the Sail Away Party on the upper pool deck.  And don’t miss the Broadway caliber shows in the Walt Disney Theatre:  Seas the Adventure, Little Mermaid and Aladdin.  

Disney Castaway Cay

Disney Characters love the beach as must as guests on the Disney Wish!  You’ll have ample opportunity to meet Disney characters on the island.  Mickey and Minnie, Daisy and Donald, Chip and Dale, Goofy and Pluto all have on their swim attire ready for a great day of beach activities.  And, be on the lookout for Captain Jack Sparrow who just may also be on the island.  Check the island’s schedule to see exactly when and where the characters will be making appearances during your day on the beach!
