Disney Cruise Line announces new dining experiences aboard Disney Wish
Among the different options, passengers will be able to choose a Marvel themed restaurant
Disney Cruise Line takes the concept of immersive family dining to another level with the debut of "Avengers: Quantum Encounter" at the Worlds of Marvel restaurant, aboard the Disney Wish. Launching in the summer of 2022, this new cinematic food adventure will bring together some of the most powerful - and little - superheroes on Earth in a demonstration of revolutionary quantum technology and high-end cuisine.
"Avengers: Quantum Encounter is the most ambitious dining experience we've ever created for Disney Cruise Line," said Danny Handke, Senior Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering. “We are developing a novel restaurant concept that will use sophisticated technology and innovative storytelling to place our guests at the center of an Avengers adventure. It's the perfect complement to the incredible menu of Disney story-inspired restaurants aboard the Disney Wish"
Guests aboard this new cruise will also be able to enjoy Marceline Market and Mickey and Friends Festival of Foods, two new fast food options to feast on throughout the day.
Worlds of Marvel is Marvel's first cinematic foodie adventure where guests can take part in an action-packed Avengers mission that unfolds around them, while enjoying an international menu inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"Avengers: Quantum Encounter" will follow Ant-Man and The Wasp as they embark on their first job as spokespeople for the Avengers. Eager to impress audiences, they will give a special presentation of the most powerful technology in superheroes, such as Captain America's shield, Iron Man's reactor, and Ant-Man's Pym particles, giving visitors a glimpse of holograms, reports top secrets and iconic scenes from the Marvel movies on the screens surrounding the restaurant.
The highlight of the presentation is a demonstration of Pym's latest technology, "Quantum Core", which uses cutting-edge technology - extremely unstable - to shrink and enlarge objects with the push of a button. A few "failed attempts" will result in hilarious Ant-Man-style shenanigans, but the real problem begins when an unexpected villain shows up accompanied by a fearsome army, eager to get their hands on this powerful quantum technology. Ant-Man and The Wasp will need all the help they can get to save the day, asking for support from Captain America, Captain Marvel and the brave diners of Disney Wish.
Every table in Worlds of Marvel will feature an interactive "Quantum Core," "a completely new device that can make objects shrink and grow remotely." Guests will help Ant-Man and The Wasp as they do some small-scale tests, like reducing the size of a suitcase for easier stateroom storage.
By activating enough quantum nuclei at the same time, the whole place will be overloaded and the energy will cause vibrations in the walls and ceiling. Equipped with state-of-the-art Pym technology and adorned with signature Stark style, the Worlds of Marvel design will deliver surprises in all shapes and sizes, from a distinctive Marvel hexagon-shaped symbol, to various winks and hidden details throughout the game. show.
