Many members of our staff and travel advisors at Magical Vacation Planner will be on the christening cruise sailing this Wednesday, June 28th. But until then, and before we tell you more about it while on board, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of what the Disney Wish will look like, and all of the unique experiences it will offer.
