For a dad from Cuba, a Disney cruise into uncharted waters

On day two of our three-night cruise aboard the new Disney Wish from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas, my husband asked me a question I was surprised hadn’t already come up in our nearly six years raising two young kids together in Florida.

“So, wait,” he said over omelets and Mickey-eared pancakes at 1923 restaurant aboard the 4,000-passenger ship that debuted in July as Disney’s newest ship in 10 years.

“Is it called ‘Walt Disney World’ because of an actual person?” he asked.
