Disney has announced that the brand new documentary from National Geographic called “Making the Wish: Disney’s Newest Cruise Ship”, which is about the newest addition to the Disney Cruise Line fleet, the “Disney Wish”, is coming to Disney+ in Australia and New Zealand on Friday 3rd March 2023.

This 90-minute special follows the process of designing, constructing and launching the Disney Wish through the eyes of the incredible Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney Imagineering teams that brought the ship to life.

From the complexity of the design to the thrill of each milestone, ship-building is truly awe-inspiring. So it’s no wonder that National Geographic decided to document the ship’s construction, and now, they’re sharing a behind-the-scenes look at this incredible process with the world!

At a two-centuries-old shipyard on Germany’s North Sea, a marvel of modern engineering is taking shape. Hundreds of construction workers, engineers, architects, designers, animators, composers, storytellers, cast and crew are transforming 144,000 tons of steel into perhaps the most enchanting vessel ever to take to sea. They’re making the Disney Wish a reality.

The special recently aired on the National Geographic channel and was released on Disney+ in the US. With the National Geographic channel recently closing in Australia, the only place to watch these specials is now on Disney+.

At the helm of this first-of-its-kind Disney Cruise Line documentary are National Geographic filmmakers Chad Cohen (director, writer and producer) and Bethany Jones (producer and writer) in partnership with Disney Yellow Shoes.

Later this year, for the first time ever, Disney Cruise Line is sailing Down Under to New Zealand and Australia with 2-, 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-night cruises from Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney
