What Characters Can You Meet on the Disney Wish?

by Shannon

Meeting and interacting with characters is one of the reasons I love vacationing at Disney. And if you’d like to meet characters — you’ll be really pleased with a Disney Cruise!

There are tons of scheduled character meet and greets both on the ship and on Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay! And the best part about them? The lines are typically short and move very quickly!

Let’s take a look at what characters you can expect to meet on the Disney Wish!

Characters Meet and Greets on the Disney Wish

Traditional Cruise Outfits

If you’re hoping to meet Mickey and his pals in their nautical inspired outfits, then you’re in luck!

You’ll have ample opportunities to meet the characters in their cruise outfits.

Here’s who you can expect to meet onboard the Disney Wish:

  • Captain Mickey
  • Captain Minnie
  • Pluto
  • Goofy
  • Donald
  • Daisy
  • Chip ‘n’ Dale

Pirate’s Night

Pirates Night will typically be on the Nassau day of your Disney Wish sailing! It’s a lot of fun to participate and dress in your Pirate costume this night.

The characters will also be dressed in their Pirate best; which makes for great photos!

Here’s who you can expect to find on Pirate Night aboard the Disney Wish!

  • Mickey
  • Minnie
  • Goofy
  • Chip ‘n’ Dale
  • Donald
  • Daisy
  • Captain Hook & Mr. Smee

Reserved Character Meet and Greets

If you have a Princess fan then you absolutely can’t miss the Royal Gathering!

This character greet is different than the others — it’s something you need to reserve ahead of time.

You can reserve the Royal Gathering on the Disney Cruise Line app either before your sailing or when you get onboard the ship in Port Canaveral.

You’ll meet five different princesses during the Royal Gathering:

  • Moana
  • Tiana
  • Belle
  • Rapunzel
  • Cinderella

Don’t skip this one!

Character Meet and Greets on Castaway Cay

Most of the same characters you’ll find onboard the ship in their nautical outfits, will also be on Castaway Cay in their island wear!

Here’s who you can expect to see on Castaway Cay:

  • Mickey
  • Minnie
  • Goofy
  • Donald
  • Daisy
  • Pluto
  • Chip ‘n’ Dale
  • Captain Jack Sparrow

Oceaneer Club Characters

Your kiddos will also see and interact with tons of characters in the Oceaneer Club!

You won’t have the opportunity to capture any photos during these interactions but I know my kids thoroughly enjoyed playing with the characters inside of the club!

Characters your kids may see:

  • Spiderman
  • Black Panther
  • Rey
  • Chewbacca
  • Stormtroopers
  • Disney Junior favorites
  • Mickey & Minnie
  • Rapunzel & Flynn
  • Belle
  • Anna & Elsa
  • Olaf
  • Captain Hook & Mr. Smee

Some of these characters will have scheduled meeting times within the Oceaneer club (note that these are for the kiddos only, adults cannot enter the Oceaneer club unless it’s Open House hours).

Characters will also appear in the club for certain activities like scavenger hunts, story times, etc!

Holiday Sailings

I wanted to note that if you sail either a Halloween on the High Seas sailing or a Very Merrytime sailing you’ll also have the opportunity to meet characters in their holiday specific outfits!

All of the character opportunities during your Disney Wish Cruise will be listed on the Daily Navigator within the Disney Cruise Line app! Make sure you favorite the ones you don’t want to miss!

The app will then send you a notification 15 minutes before their meet and greet begins. 🙂

I hope this information is helpful! I’ll be on a Disney Wish Very Merrytime sailing in December and can’t wait to see the characters in their holiday best and share all of the fun! 🙂
