In this Disney Wish Embarkation Day vlog, Kieran and I awake in Walt Disney World’s Riviera Resort, a Disney Vacation Club resort. Here, I give you a room tour of a West facing Deluxe Studio (8713). From WDW, we take the Disney Cruise Line transfer to the dedicated Disney Cruise Line terminal at Port Canaveral in east Florida USA. The round-trip cost for this transfer was $80.00 pp. Upon arriving at the port, we head to the Concierge check-in desk, and we are then escorted to the new and expanded Concierge Lounge.

Upon boarding the Disney Wish, you enter the beautiful atrium, otherwise known as the Grand Hall. Not only that, Flynn Rider and Rapunzel are there to greet you too! Your first stop is upstairs to the beautiful Concierge lounge. Here we give you an overview of the lounge’s layout, check out the outdoor seating on deck 12, tour the self-serve drinks and food offerings, as well as the outdoor lounge on deck 13 with hot tubs, lounge chairs, sofas and Dole Whip smoothie on-tap!

We give you a full stateroom tour, showcasing the split bathroom layout, the Tangled/Rapunzel theme, the storage space throughout and some of the extra things you get in a Concierge stateroom.

The show features Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Chip, Dale, Rapunzel, Flynn, Prince Charming, Cinderella, Moana and Fairy Godmother herself! Our cruise director then come’s out to start the countdown to the Disney Cruise Ship horn!

Your evening show was Seas the Adventure, followed by dinner at 1923 (Roy). You enjoy a fantastic meal, including appetiser, soup, main (entree) and dessert. From dinner, you head to Luna to enjoy the adult’s only entertainment of Match Your Mate.
