An Attraction Will Be on the Ship!!
The first-ever Disney attraction at sea, AquaMouse will take you through show scenes, lighting and special effects on a wild water ride themed after “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” animated shorts. Everyone in the family can ride through 760 feet of winding tubes suspended high above the upper decks.
Three Themed Districts
