PHOTOS: Where to Find the BEST Coffee on Disney’s New Cruise Ship!

The Disney Wish is Disney Cruise Line’s newest ship, and we got to check it all out!

Welcome aboard the Disney Wish!

We’ve tried the restaurants, checked out the pools, explored the ship, and more on the Disney Wish. There is just SO much to do on board, like some exclusive dining experiences and the first ever Disney attraction at sea! You can check out our big overview on the ship right here, but we wanted to break down a specific location that has some special details — the Wishing Star Cafe!


The Wishing Star Cafe is located on Deck 4 off of the Grand Hall of the ship. It sits between the Untangled Salon and Hook’s Barbery.

A look at the location

You can access the cafe from the Grand Hall. Also nearby is Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.


The Wishing Star Cafe is themed after the Wishing Star from Disney’s Pinocchio. It’s a smaller space with less than a dozen chairs set up at a bar, with a long high top counter in front of it.


Around the cafe, you can find fun Pinocchio details, like Jiminy Cricket!

There he is!

There are some cool inscriptions on the mirrors, like this one that says “You deserve to have your wish come true,” from Jiminy.

Words of wisdom

And, this one is from Merlin, reading “It’s up to you how far you’ll go. If you don’t try you’ll never know,” which is actually from The Sword in the Stone.

Such a cool design!

It’s a whimsical space with fun touches, but if this place gets crowded, it will probably be difficult to grab a seat.

Not a ton of seating!

Let’s try something out!


The Wishing Star Cafe is a coffee bar, but it also serves specialty cocktails. There are several spirits behind the bar, but we needed a dose of caffeine, so we got a latte! The Cast Member recommended adding Salted Caramel and Coconut to ours. And, as you can see, we got some fun latte art, too.

There’s a cricket in our coffee!

This was SO GOOD! The espresso had a great flavor to it and it was perfectly steamed. The combination of the flavored syrups also went really well together.

A closer look

We were worried this might be too sweet, but it wasn’t at all! Our reporter said it was one of the best lattes they’ve had in a while.

We’d definitely order it again!

It’s good to know there’s a nice spot for some specialty coffees aboard the ship! This small spot really did pack a big punch when it came to our beverage of choice.

A quaint little spot!

This is far from the only bar aboard the ship, though. There are some adults-only bars and lounges like Nightingale’s, The Bayou, The Rose, and more.


Or, if you want something with a TON of theming, you can check out Star Wars: Hyperspace Lounge to be launched out of this world while sipping on some galactic cocktails.
