Ant-Man and The Wasp OtterBox iPhone Case
The Wish's "Worlds of Marvel: Quantum Encounter" dinner show stars Pym Technologies tinkerers Ant-Man and The Wasp in an original tale that invites guests to help save the ship from Ultron.

This sturdy, shock-absorbing iPhone case from OtterBox does double duty, paying tribute to the superheroes while also potentially deflecting Ultron's errant concussion blasters.

PYM Technologies Hoodie
Sure, you could attend the Wish's Marvel-themed dinner experience wearing any old Avengers T-shirt, but those looking to level up their fandom might want to consider this more “formal” attire. Starring Ant-Man and The Wasp, the interactive show mimics a Pym Technologies presentation, making this hoodie the perfect choice to show your support — and willingness to troubleshoot a malfunctioning Quantum Core.

Pirates of the Caribbean Loungefly Mini Backpack
It wouldn't be a Disney cruise without some pirate-fueled shenanigans. Thankfully, the Pirate’s Rockin’ Parlay Party doesn't disappoint, bringing live music, fireworks and plenty of bantering buccaneers to the upper decks.

Minnie Mouse Shoes by Native Shoes
Comfy footwear is a must on any cruise, but convenience is also key when different activities demand you change shoes. These sneaker-style slip-ons — also available in a Grogu variety — cover both bases, providing lasting comfort for those long aft-to-forward treks but also sliding on and off quickly when an impromptu pool dip calls for it.

Wandering Oaken's Trading Post And Sauna Sweatshirt
The Wish's "Arendelle: A Frozen Dining Adventure" features ice-slinging Princess Elsa and her lovable sister, Anna. Fan-favorites Kristoff and Olaf are also in attendance, but it's eccentric trading post/sauna proprietor Oaken who steals the spotlight. You can show your appreciation for the standout star — while fighting the chill of the show's fake snow — in this sweatshirt only the most faithful "Frozen" followers will appreciate.

Frozen Snowflake Earrings
When packing for a cruise, you're probably not filling your suitcase with much winter-themed attire or accessories. Unless, of course, you're headed to Arendelle, the setting for the Wish's "Frozen"-themed dinner show. Exuding sophistication and fan service in equal measure, these snowflake earrings might stand out a bit when sunbathing, but they'll look right at home during the Norwegian-inspired celebration.

The first thing you see upon boarding the Wish is its stunning, "Cinderella"-themed Grand Hall.

Stitch Hawaiian Shirt
Given the variety of fan-favorite characters represented on the Wish, it's a shame Stitch doesn't have his own themed eatery or entertainment venue. Thankfully, the impish extraterrestrial's faithful followers can remedy this oversight, sneaking him aboard with this attention-grabbing shirt. Packed with personality — and plenty of blue alien shenanigans — the Hawaiian-style attire should also serve as a fun conversation starter with fellow Stitch stalwarts.
