What Did Making The Wish Chronicle the Building Of?

“Making a Wish” is a phrase that is very closely tied to the Walt Disney Company. Ever since the original animated Pinocchio came out in 1940, “wishing upon a star” became a sort of motto for the company. As such, it’s no wonder that there is also a “Making the Disney Wish” documentary that recounts how the titular Wish was built. But what did Making The Wish chronicle the building of? Was it: a Disney Theme Park, a Disney Cruise Ship, a Disney Resort, or a Disney Film Set? We have the answer to that very question right here.

What Was Built in Making The Disney Wish Documentary?

This National Geographic documentary was released on December 24th, 2022. Its Disney+ debut followed shortly after, on February 17th, 2023. The filming for this documentary took place in June 2021, while The Wish itself was being built. But what is The Wish? Is it:

  • 1. A Disney Theme Park.
  • 2. A Disney Cruise Ship.
  • 3. A Disney Resort.
  • 4. A Disney Film Set.

The correct answer here is – a Disney Cruise Ship. In fact, the full title of the documentary is “Making the Disney Wish: Disney’s Newest Cruise Ship”. It is the newest Disney Cruise Line cruise ship and the fifth overall. The Wish is preceeded by Disney Magic (launched in 1998), Disney Wonder (in 1999), Disney Dream (in 2011), and Disney Fantasy (from 2012). The series follows the ship’s construction from the ground up, from the initial design phase to its maiden voyage. It features interviews with the ship’s designers, builders, and crew, as well as behind-the-scenes footage of the construction process. Making the Wish is a fascinating look at how a Disney cruise ship is built. The series is also a celebration of the Disney Wish itself, which is the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly cruise ship ever built.
