The Bayou Lounge on The Disney Wish Review

The Bayou Lounge on The Disney Wish Review

We have a lot of opinions about the Disney Wish. But one thing we truly appreciate about this ship is the beautiful spaces that Imagineers have created. The Bayou is one of those spaces. A lounge located on deck 3 of the Disney Wish, The Bayou is a lounge, bar and activity space.

The Bayou on the Disney Wish

The Bayou on the Disney Wish is a Princess and the Frog themed lounge located on Deck 3, midship. It’s right off the atrium so it’s super easy to find. The Bayou is one of the only lounge spaces that opens as early as 7am. And serves, coffee, beignets, and alcoholic drinks, all at an additional charge.  The space is beautiful, with hanging flowers from the ceiling, varying colors of green velvet chairs and booths and little nods throughout. 

The Bayou on the Disney Wish is where you can not only order drinks and a few food items, but you can also listen to live music and enjoy onboard activities here.

Menu for The Bayou on the Disney Wish

The menu for The Bayou changes throughout the day. But in the mornings, you can get specialty lattes and beignets, as well as fresh pressed juices. They also almost always have a mimosa and Bloody Mary special in the morning. You can often find these for as much as 50% off when ordered by a certain time. 

In the afternoons and evenings, you’ll find specialty coffees and lattes and beignets again. As well as a full bar menu that includes options like beers, wines, sodas as well as specialty cocktails. You’ll find the Smoked Fashioned here, which comes in a beautiful wooden box, and lets out “smoke” once opened. They also have an Absinthe Frappe, Hurricane and Orleans Crusta which is made with Hennesy, Grand Marnier and Luxardo. 

And, of course you can always order anything that you can get at a regular bar.  You can expect prices for drinks to be fairly standard Disneycruise drink prices ranging from about $9-$15. With the exception of the Smoked Fashioned, which will put you back a whole $20. We don’t think this drink is particularly worth that cost. But the presentation is fun. Beignets will set you back about $1.50 each, with that price getting cheaper when you buy more.

Is The Bayou for Adults Only?

Nope! The Bayou is a family friendly lounge onboard the Disney Wish. Since there are crafts and activities held there throughout the day, it’s a great place to go with the family unless the activity is noted as adult only.

Review of The Bayou on the Disney Wish

The Bayou was actually one of our favorite spaces on the Disney Wish! It’s beautiful and has a great selection of menu options. The space itself is a little small for its intended purposes of holding activities there. But during the times when no scheduled activities are planned, there are plenty of comfortable seats available. Aesthetically, this lounge is stunning.

The beignets were always delicious, and we loved having a quiet space in the mornings to sit an enjoy coffee. We tried a variety of drinks during the duration of our cruise. The Smoked Fashioned was our least favorite, and very expensive. But the mimosas, juices, lattes, Orleans Crusta, and their house made Orange Soda was all delicious.  The Bayou is definitely worth a visit during your next cruise on the Disney Wish!
