AquaMouse on Disney Wish to Offer Second Animated Adventure: “Swiss Meltdown”

Hi everyone!

When the Disney Wish sets sail next summer, there will be a second animated adventure on the AquaMouse, the first-ever Disney attraction at sea. The water ride’s original show “Scuba Scramble” is inspired by “The Wonderful World of Mickey Mouse” animated shorts. Disney says this “will immerse guests in a hilarious underwater adventure with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse through show scenes and special effects.” And now, Disney has announced a second animated adventure called “Swiss Meltdown”!

Danny Handke, Senior Creative Director, Walt Disney Imagineering says on the Disney Parks Blog, Our second show is “Swiss Meltdown,” where Mickey and Minnie will invite you on a mountain sledding excursion that will inevitably (and hilariously) go awry. When the sun comes out and the snow begins to melt, you’ll be off on a frantic dash to the mountaintop while trying to avoid obstacles like avalanches, leaky rock walls and waterfalls — oh, boy! The story is inspired by one of the Emmy Award-winning “Mickey Mouse” shorts, “Yodelberg,” and composer Christopher Willis adapted his iconic score from the episode for the attraction.

He continues that there are also fun Disney Easter eggs to see during a ride on AquaMouse. For example, there is an appearance by the abominable snowman from the Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland. And Chip and Dale are hiding in each show as they hitchhike their way to Castaway Cay. There are 60+ water blasters, misters and pop jets along the way, so you probably will need to ride many times to catch everything.

Disney has revealed the posters for both adventures. The posters will be in the attraction queue to let guests know which adventure is being featured each day.

The Disney Wish sets sail next summer – we are booked and looking forward to experiencing the AquaMouse!
