Ship Reviews

Ship Preview: Disney Treasure

Disney Treasure will offer a range of signature Disney Cruise Line experiences, as well as new-to-the-line restaurants and bars, and reimagined attractions and experiences that debuted aboard her sister ship, Disney Wish.

Disney Treasure

Disney Treasure is a sister ship to Disney Wish (launched in 2022), and offers guests fan-favourite spaces from the Disney Wish, infused with the theme of adventure and inspired by memorable Disney stories like “Aladdin,” “Coco” and “Zootopia.” The ship also introduces a range of new-to-the-line family entertainment and dining concepts, joining the upscale 1923 and World of Marvel that debuted aboard Disney Wish.

Dining aboard Disney Treasure

Disney Treasure continues Disney Cruise Line’s rotational family dining concept, where guests experience one of three restaurants each night, accompanied by a dedicated service team that joins them throughout the voyage, ensuring the dining experience retains a sense of familiarity.

In addition to three main family restaurants (1923, Worlds of Marvel, and Plaza de Coco), Disney Treasure features quick bites, casual dining, 24-hour room service, specialty treats, gourmet cafes, upscale dining just for adults, and the new Jumbeaux’s Sweets, inspired by the popular ice cream parlor featured in Disney’s “Zootopia.”

Main Dining Rooms

Plaza de Coco is the world’s first theatrical dining experience themed to the Disney and Pixar film, “Coco.” The story of Miguel and his familia will continue where it left off on screen as they gather in Mariachi Plaza to take guests on two nights of colourful, music-filled journeys that celebrate family memories and togetherness with festive dinner menus of modern twists on traditional Mexican fare and a line-up of live entertainment.

Worlds of Marvel, Disney Cruise Line’s immersive Marvel-themed dining experience, celebrates favourite Avengers characters and stories, including interaction with Spider-Man. This high-tech venue aboard Disney Treasure offers a worldly menu and special entertainment, including two separate nights with distinct shows and dining, all inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

1923, named for the founding year of Walt Disney Animation Studios, will celebrate the Disney’s animation legacy and bring to life Walt Disney’s love of adventure through a nostalgic collection of exploration-themed artwork from both modern and classic animated films. Steeped in the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age, the venue’s upscale ambiance will complement a sophisticated menu inspired by the fusion of cultural flavours found throughout California and designed with families in mind.

Additional Dining Experiences

Several bars and lounges aboard Disney Treasure will serve food, including lounges themed to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as well as the Jungle Cruise.

Periscope Pub

Periscope Pub – Disney Cruise Line’s first venue inspired by the 1954 Walt Disney film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Periscope Pub will feature interiors themed to the Nautilus, the fictional submarine belonging to Captain Nemo in the movie.

You can look up and see the sea above through a glass ceiling, as well as through “porthole windows” that appear to use video technology, similar to the Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge on the Disney Wish.

Throughout the pub there are artifacts, drawings, and books used by Captain Nemo and his crew, as well as hidden easter eggs, such as a series of numbers on the submarine pressure gauge behind the bar. These numbers honour the geographical coordinates of Meyer Werft shipyard where Disney Treasure was built, as well as the official hull numbers of each Disney Cruise Line ship in the fleet.

The menu includes light bites as well as undersea-inspired drinks and craft brews, such as three exclusive tap beers, which will all be themed to the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea storyline and former theme park attraction.

Skipper Society

Skipper Society – Serving themed cocktails and light snacks in a lounge inspired by the iconic Jungle Cruise attraction, this bar and lounge has an exterior based on of the Jungle Cruise attraction boats. Menu items include fresh waffles and a smoked drink, and just like Periscope Pub there are a number of hidden easter eggs.

The vessel that houses the bar is named “Ems Empress” in homage to the Ems River, which is where Disney Treasure made her first voyage to sea. There’s also an “Ems Empress” sign inside the bar. 

Throughout the space, there are design touches that reference Jungle Cruise, such as plants throughout the space that are the same species as those at the Disneyland attraction, and red and green architecture reminiscent of the attraction building at Magic Kingdom Park.

Behind the bar, there is also a stack of vintage-style suitcases featuring travel stickers that reflect the locations throughout the Jungle Cruise.

The Rose – Themed after Beauty and the Beast, The Rose is a high-end lounge between Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté, offering pre-dinner aperitifs and after-dinner cocktails.

Haunted Mansion Parlour

Haunted Mansion Parlour – One of the most thrilling spots onboard the Disney Treasure, The Haunted Mansion Parlour is themed after the famous Disney Parks attraction with an all-new bar featuring themed cocktails and merchandise.

Like each iteration of the Haunted Mansion within Disney theme parks around the world, the Haunted Mansion Parlour has its own backstory, hosted by a “jovial captain” who entered the ghostly realm after a disastrous dinner with his beloved fiancé. Disney Cruise Line has created “an ever-escalating anthology of illusions” to make the parlour a immersive experience.

Mickey & Friends Festival of Foods – First introduced aboard Disney Wish, the Mickey & Friends Festival of Foods offers a quick service food court with five uniquely themed venues to enjoy.

Marceline Market – This food hall is named for Walt Disney’s childhood hometown in Missouri. The dining spot has an “ever-changing menu,” as well as ocean views with both indoor and outdoor seating.

Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement – Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement is also available onboard as a luxurious dining experience. The restaurant will feature a gourmet menu by the three Michelin-starred chef. The restaurant will take its theming after Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast.

Palo Steakhouse – Disney Cruise Line’s signature steakhouse, this venue aboard Disney Treasure features both Italian fare and steakhouse dining, with decor inspired by Cogsworth from Beauty and the Beast.
