Disney Cruise Line has announced a new cinematic dining experience aboard the Disney Wish. The line will be debuting “Avengers: Quantum Encounter” at the Worlds of Marvel restaurant, which premieres summer 2022. This all-new cinematic dining adventure will bring guests to a showcase of revolutionary quantum technology and cuisine.
“Avengers: Quantum Encounter is Disney Cruise Line’s most ambitious dining experience ever,” says Danny Handke, senior creative director, Walt Disney Imagineering, in a press statement. “We’re doing something that’s never been done before in a restaurant, developing an exclusive Avengers adventure that will immerse our guests in the action through sophisticated technology and innovative storytelling. It’s the perfect complement to the incredible menu of story-driven dining aboard the Disney Wish.”
What is the Cinematic Dining Experience?
Worlds of Marvel is the first-ever Marvel cinematic dining adventure, where guests will play an interactive role in an action-packed Avengers mission that unfolds around them, complete with a menu inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The story line for the experience is that Avengers: Quantum Encounter will follow Ant-Man and The Wasp as they embark on their first public speaking engagement on behalf of the Avengers. They’ll host a presentation of the most powerful Super Hero technologies, such as Captain America’s shield, Iron Man’s arc reactor and Ant-Man’s Pym Particles, giving guests an up-close look at holographic models, field reports and iconic scenes from Marvel movies displayed on the screens surrounding the room.
The highlight of this event is a hands-on demonstration of Pym Tech, the Quantum Core, which uses cutting-edge—and “highly unstable”—technology to “shrink” and “grow” targets at the push of a button. A few “misfires” result in Ant-Man-style hijinks, but the real trouble begins when an unexpected villain shows up with a fearsome army in tow, eager to get their hands on this powerful quantum technology. Ant-Man and The Wasp will need all the help they can get, calling on Captain America, Captain Marvel and the brave diners of the Disney Wish for back-up.
Every table at Worlds of Marvel will feature an interactive Quantum Core, “a brand-new device that can cause objects to shrink and grow remotely.” Guests will be brought along for the adventure as they assist Ant-Man and The Wasp as they attempt some small-scale trials, such as shrinking oversized luggage for easy stateroom storage.
When enough of the Quantum Cores are activated at the same time, the entire venue will become “supercharged” as energy pulses through the power channels in the walls and ceiling. Outfitted with state-of-the-art Pym Tech, the design of Worlds of Marvel will offer surprises from a distinctly Marvel hexagonal motif to the various “Easter eggs” and unknown details embedded in the show.
Globally Inspired Menus
Worlds of Marvel will take families on a tour of the real and fictional settings of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with dishes inspired by locales like African Wakanda, Eastern European Sokovia and the Avengers’ home base of New York City. Though menus are still in development, guests can expect to find a diverse array of globally influenced items and nods to the worlds and characters they know and love from Marvel Studios films.
Guests aboard the Disney Wish will also enjoy Marceline Market and Mickey and Friends Festival of Foods, two new quick-and-casual dining options for relaxed meals throughout the day.
The Disney Wish will continue Disney Cruise Line’s family dining concept, where guests experience one of three imaginative restaurants each night accompanied by a dedicated service team that is assigned to their family throughout the voyage. With exceptional attention to detail, families will indulge in a variety of dining experiences with personalized service every evening.
The Disney Wish will sail its maiden voyage on June 9, 2022, followed by a season of 3- and 4-night cruises to Nassau, Bahamas, and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay, from Port Canaveral, Florida.
