Are you excited for the Disney Wish? If you plan to sail on board Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, you will be treated to so much entertainment. Check out the latest scenes from one of the new original shows right here.
The Disney Wish is scheduled for the maiden voyage in July 2022. As we get closer to that date, Disney releases more exciting information about the brand new ship.
Two new original shows
Disney Cruise Line announced that the new ship will also debut two new original shows for guests on board. You can read more details about those new shows HERE. I (Maggie) am so excited about all of this new entertainment coming!
One of the original shows is a Broadway-style new adaptation of Disney’s 1989 The Little Mermaid. During the Destination D23 event, viewers were given a preview of “Poor Unfortunate Souls” by Virginia aka Ursula. The performance was outstanding!
In this modern-day retelling, audiences will rediscover the iconic scenes, acclaimed music and beloved characters of the film, as a cast of contemporary storytellers put their own spin on the timeless tale.

“Under the Sea” will be the show’s biggest production number, complete with incredible vocals, show-stopping choreography and plenty of special effects. Here, the show’s cutting-edge puppetry will be on the greatest display, as countless sea creatures and fantastical characters like Sebastian and Flounder gather on stage to sing, dance and celebrate.
Throughout the show, playful scenic designs and state-of-the-art video projections will transform the Walt Disney Theatre into a 360-degree undersea environment. During “Kiss the Girl,” Sebastian will lead a chorus of sea life in a refreshed rendition of the melody as the audience is visually transported into the scene.
In a new twist exclusive to our show, even though Ariel doesn’t have a voice at this point in the story, her inner voice will play an important and meaningful role in the song.
If you tuned in to Destination D23 last fall, you may have gotten a sneak peek at our show’s spin on “Poor Unfortunate Souls.” This will be a more soulful take of the classic tune, filled with all of Ursula’s confidence and glamour. During this number, her power will manifest in a jaw-dropping moment as she truly becomes larger than life.
