Celebrate the Release of ‘Wish’ at the Disney Parks
Disney’s newest animated film, ‘Wish’, is now in theaters! Guests visiting the Disney parks can celebrate the new film with different special experiences. From dining to photo opportunities, there’s something for every guest to enjoy.
Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Wish” is an all-new musical-comedy now playing in theaters that welcomes audiences to the magical kingdom of Rosas, where Asha, a sharp-witted idealist, makes a wish so powerful that it is answered by a cosmic force—a little ball of boundless energy called Star. Together, Asha and Star confront a most formidable foe—the ruler of Rosas, King Magnifico—to save her community and prove that when the will of one courageous human connects with the magic of the stars, wondrous things can happen.
Ariana DeBose Dazzles
Academy Award®-winning actress Ariana DeBose appeared under the stars in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Paris to perform “This Wish” from Disney Animation’s “Wish.” The performance features breathtaking castle projections, fountains and “Wish”-themed drones lighting up the night sky. Tune in to “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration” airing on ABC this Sunday, Nov. 26 at 8 p.m. ET and streaming next day on Hulu and Disney+ to see the full performance and for an enchanting special glimpse of “Wish.”
Asha Meets Guests Around the World
At EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort, guests have been dreaming big with Asha in a special location near the entrance to World Showcase. Beginning today, Asha makes her way to Disneyland Resort, where she will appear outside the Royal Hall in Fantasyland, bringing with her a touch of the magical kingdom of Rosas as Star’s playful glow lights up the area.
“Wish” Lights up the Night from Coast to Coast
For a limited time, a new water short called “This Wish” will be presented ahead of “World of Color – Season of Light” at Disney California Adventure park at the Disneyland Resort. When the lights dim around Paradise Bay, Asha and Star take guests on a journey set to the song “This Wish” from the film. Animated projections, majestic fountains synchronized to music, dazzling lasers and sparkling lighting effects magically combine to tell the story of how stars can guide, inspire and remind us to believe in possibility.
Starting today, Spaceship Earth will illuminate the EPCOT sky at Walt Disney World Resort with special colors and lights featuring the brand-new song “I’m a Star” from Disney Animation’s “Wish.”
Wishful Dining Experiences
Walt Disney World Resort has some treats for guests that are a wish come true! Starting today, visit Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs for the Wish Salted Caramel Hot Cocoa. Check out the Contempo Café at Disney’s Contemporary Resort for the Ready to Sparkle cookie. And, try out the refreshing So Many Wishes drink found at a variety of locations throughout the resort. Beginning Nov. 24, guests taking part in the Holiday Cookie Stroll at EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays presented by AdventHealth can redeem the Star Cookie from the Holiday Sweets & Treats Holiday Kitchen after they collect all five Holiday Cookie Stroll stamps in their Festival Passport.
A Valentino popcorn bucket and Star sipper based on characters of the same name from “Wish” will be available at select locations throughout the Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and on Disney Cruise Line ships. Limited to two per person, per transaction while supplies last.
Shine like a Star with Disney PhotoPass
Beginning today, guests at Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Cruise Line can wish upon a star with a new Disney PhotoPass Magic Shot featuring Star from “Wish.”
For guests onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship, be sure to take advantage of this Magic Shot that includes both Star and Valentino from “Wish.” And now through Nov. 30, 2023, Disneyland Resort Magic Key holders can enjoy it, too. Look for the Magic Key sign across from Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland Park.
Learn to Draw like a Disney Artist
For a limited time, guests can celebrate “Wish” by learning how to draw select characters from the film at Animation Academy in Disney California Adventure Park at the Disneyland Resort and the Animation Experience at Conservation Station at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park at Walt Disney World Resort. The activity is offered under the guidance of a talented artist, and for participants at Disney California Adventure Park, an audio-visual introduction from the new film’s heads of animation, Becky Bresee and Wayne Unten at the Walt Disney Animation Studios, will precede the activity.
