The Disney Wish features a redesigned shipside promenade spanning multiple decks. The primary promenade is on deck 4 with stairs on the port and starboard side to deck 5 and deck 6 which for the first time onboard a Disney cruise ship, allows guests to walk out to the bow.
The following video is a real time walking tour of the Disney Wish promenade deck from port aft forward up to the bow and back to the starboard aft.
Guests sailing with a service animal can find Pluto’s Corner, the pet relief area on deck 5 forward on the port side.
The best route to Pluto’s Corner is to head towards Senses Spa, exit the doors to the deck 5 promenade, and walk forward past the stairs to deck 6.
On deck 4 and deck 5, there are a number of drinking and water bottle filling stations such as the one pictured below.
A cruise ship staple, shuffleboard is available with 4 areas, 2 on each side of the ship. At launch of the Disney Wish, guests looking to play were required to visit guest services to sign out the shuffleboard equipment.
On the starboard side of deck 4, you can find two portholes featuring Captain Minnie and Captain Mickey. Please enjoy these while you can, as I worry with the regular cleaning of the ship, and well, guest behavior the application of the graphics may peal off on a regular basis resulting in the loss of a fun photo-op.
The loungers are out, but someone forgot to order the full length pads.
Unfortunately, the promenade deck on the Disney Wish is not continuous resulting in the loss of a walking and running track. Although, at certain times of the day, guests do have the option to walk or run in a U path from aft on one side forward up the stairs to decks 5 and 5, around the bow, then back down stairs to deck 4 and go from forward to aft. Not ideal, but it is slightly more enjoyable than a treadmill in Senses Fitness. The caveat here is access to the bow on deck 6 is not always available and from experience only one side of the ship’s deck 5 to deck 6 staircases may be open.
Overall, what do you think about the outside promenade deck on the Disney Wish?
