Disney Wish: Quick-and-Casual Family Dining Options Announced

Today, Disney Cruise Line announced the quick-service and casual family dining options planned for thr Disney Wish. While the Disney Wish will offer upscale table-service experiences throughout the day, families will also be able to enjoy quick, convenient meals and snacks with more casual walk-up dining options than are offered on the ships across the current fleet.

Marceline Market

Named for Walt Disney’s early childhood hometown in Missouri, Marceline Market is a stylish food hall inspired by popular marketplaces around the world. Here, guests will find an ever-changing menu of specialized offerings in a vibrant, free flow setting with both indoor and outdoor seating and breathtaking ocean views all around.

Featuring 10 food stalls and a café-style beverage bar in the center, Marceline Market will be styled as an old industrial loft converted into a bustling marketplace, but with a distinctly Disney design twist: At this food hall, the local proprietors are Disney characters themselves, as each station is themed to beloved animated films such as “Tangled,” “Ratatouille,” “Alice in Wonderland,” “Zootopia” and more.

These storied shopkeepers will curate a wide-ranging variety of freshly prepared cuisines for the whole family to enjoy, including American classics, international specialties, comfort foods, seafood, soups and salads, vegetarian and plant-based fare, baked goods, and desserts.

Marceline Market will offer a casual, walk-around dining experience for breakfast and lunch, followed by table-service dining at dinnertime with entrees cooked to order.

Mickey and Friends Festival of Foods

Located right in the middle of the fun on the upper decks, Mickey and Friends Festival of Foods will be the perfect place for families to grab a quick bite for lunch, dinner or anytime in between. Avid Disney cruisers will be particularly pleased by the mix of fan-favorite treats, like Disney Cruise Line’s signature soft-serve ice cream, with two brand-new selections: The Disney Wish will feature the fleet’s first dedicated quick-service venues for barbeque and Mexican-inspired fare. Also offering delectable American classics and other snackable delights, this open-air eatery comprises five uniquely themed food stalls:

  • Mickey’s Smokestack Barbecue
  • Donald’s Cantina
  • Daisy’s Pizza Pies
  • Goofy’s Grill
  • Sweet Minnie’s Ice Cream

The whimsical design is inspired by the seaside boardwalk setting featured in popular “Mickey Mouse” animated shorts, a fitting addition to the Mickey and Friends-themed family district on the upper decks. A sizable, shaded seating area will provide convenient and comfortable accommodations for families to relax and enjoy their meals.

The Disney Wish will sail its maiden voyage on June 9, 2022, followed by a season of three- and four-night cruises to Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, from Port Canaveral, Florida.

    What is ” a casual, walk around dining experience”? A buffet? Self – serve or not? A cafeteria line but with different sections? And yes, curious about the fate of Cabanas buffet.

    I see they are doing the table service at night just like on the other ships. I was never a fan of that. If I want table service, then I go to the dining room.

    Why do the marketing people have to write such rubbish, it’s s buffet just call it that. The themed stations is a continuation of Disney desperately forcing some IP into everything as had been seen this whole disjointed ship which feels like it had been designed by many teams from the marketing dept who have never been on a cruise.

    Also look closely at the cafe bar image, some drinks maybe still free but expect a lot more up charge options. This new ship is new Disney, it’s going to find new ways to extract money from you onboard.

    Ummm…. sandwiches and salads at the walk up windows seem to be missing from the new lineup? Am I missing something? I’m happy to have barbecue and mexican but I also liked the quick salad and little wrap/sandwich station. My grown kids are now vegetarian and quasi vegetarian (no pork, beef) and we eat much more salad or small servings of meat (like a little sandwich)…

      Almost all of the quick dining option have sandwiches and salads. You can make Donald’s Cantina vegetarian by doing it without meat, or choosing chicken if you’d like. They aren’t doing away with sandwiches, salads, and vegetarian options. ?
