Today, Walt Disney Imagineering’s Danny Handke, Senior Creative Director shared chilling new details about the Disney Wish’s AquaMouse. In addition to Scuba Scramble show which will immerse guests in a hilarious underwater adventure with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, Handke revealed the second show, Swiss Meltdown.
In Swiss Meltdown, Mickey and Minnie will invite you on a mountain sledding excursion that will inevitably (and hilariously) go awry. When the sun comes out and the snow begins to melt, you’ll be off on a frantic dash to the mountaintop while trying to avoid obstacles like avalanches, leaky rock walls and waterfalls — oh, boy! The story is inspired by one of the Emmy Award-winning Mickey Mouse shorts, Yodelberg, and composer Christopher Willis adapted his iconic score from the episode for the attraction.
According to Handke, there are many fun Disney easter eggs to catch during a ride on AquaMouse, such as an appearance by the abominable snowman from the Disneyland attraction Matterhorn Bobsleds. One of Handke’s favorite details is that Chip and Dale are hiding in each show, hitchhiking their way to Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay. Good luck trying to spot them amid the 60-plus water blasters, misters and pop jets that you’ll encounter along the way!
Finally, posters for both fun-filled excursions were shared with the announcement on the Disney Parks Blog. These will be showcased in the attraction queue to let our guests know which adventure is being featured each day of their voyage.
