You don’t need much to make your photos look great in The Bayou Lounge, which is located on Deck 3. All guests have to do is pick a seat on the velvet green chairs at the bar or on the green sofa while the beautiful backdrop does the rest for your photos.
The Grand Hall
The Grand Hall is the enchanting centerpiece of the ship and where guest begin their voyage. The space is inspired by the story of Cinderella, which is evident by the bronze statue of the Disney princess and her iconic glass slipper inside a cloche that sits at the bottom of the stairs.
The Grand Hall, located on deck 3, 4 and 5, is one of the best photo ops on the Disney Wish. The pixie dust takes your eyes to the massive chandelier in the center of the space. It’s filled with crystals and has a large wishing star sits on the base.
The Grand Hall is everything fairytales and beautiful pictures are made of. If you can get the timing right, a magical moment happens when the clock strikes midnight.
The Wishing Star Cafe

The cafe, located on deck 4, has about 12 chairs near the bar and a few tables and chairs directly in front. The Wishing Star Cafe has an elegant feel with shimmer and pizazz.
Nightingale’s Piano Bar
Nightingale’s Piano Ball is a romantic fairytale based on Cinderella’s rendition of “Sing Sweet Nightingale” from the 1950 Disney classic. The space, located on deck 3, has a soft metallic palette and a swirl of pearlescent bubbles that fit elegantly inside the golden chandelier above the piano.
The team’s attention to the musical details is what makes this space so unique and special. The feeling will radiate in all of your pictures.
The Rose and Enchanté by Chef Arnaud Lallement
Before indulging at two of the best restaurants on the ship, Palo Steakhouse and Enchanté, the entrance to The Rose on deck 12 is a space many guests are unaware exists. Inspired by the Disney classic, “The Beauty and The Beast,” The Rose has antique mirrors and floating rose petals mimicking the wonders of the enchanted castle in the film.
You go through the Rose before entering the fine dining restaurant and experience Enchanté. The entrance is great for pictures because of the dazzling candlelights inspired by Lumiere, the candelabra maître d’ from the Disney film.

Inspired by Dryden’s Vos’ ship in “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” the Hyperspace Lounge is an immersive experience for adults. You can get a lot in your pictures, including the celestial-looking cocktails bubbling by the bar.
Guests also can photograph themselves in the gold-clad lounge. There, people look out of the seven widescreen windows into space and the stars.
