A new Disney wish has just been fulfilled with the inauguration of

Disney Wish

's cruise line

that has the first Disney attraction at sea: the impressive structure of

230 meters of meandering tubes

suspended over the upper decks to slide down at full speed until you end up in one of the ship's six pools.

The ship, built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany, with a length of 341 meters, 15 decks and a capacity for 4,000 passengers, is the latest bet by

Star Wars

4,400 works of art

, more than 70,000 garments, dresses and accessories for crew members and characters, such as

Rapunzel's long hair

(18 meters deployed at the stern), as well as virtual adventures, shows...

The worlds of Marvel and 'Star Wars'

"This ship is a celebration of nearly 100 years of Disney history. Every one of the company's worlds and characters is represented in there, from

Cinderella

in the central hall, to Ariel and her friends under the sea, Woody from

Toy Story

and, of course, the worlds of Marvel and Star Wars, all combined with the latest technology," said Bob Chapeck, CEO of

The Walt Disney Company,

during the launching ceremony of the ship in Port Canaveral, in which did not miss a colorful show with the main characters that accompany the passengers during the journey.

Disney Wish,

in which more than 22,000 have worked over six years, represents the beginning of a

major expansion

in the company's cruise business for the coming years.

"We plan to open another two ships in the future that will sail to a second destination in the Bahamas (so far they are Nassau and the aforementioned Castaway)," said Josh D'Amaro, president of

Disney Parks,

Experiences and Products.

In this sense, he highlighted that the new ship will represent "everything that families love when sailing with us, from the incredible

gastronomic experiences

and encounters with characters, to the dazzling shows and the characteristic attention to detail of our crew".
