The Disney Wish is still a long way away, but as you know, I love speculation. So, this week, I'm wondering what the design of the Wish's pool deck will be like. Last week, I compared the poolside restaurants between the Disney ships, and I'm hoping the Wish's poolside restaurant layout is similar to the layout of the Magic and Wonder. So, today, we're not thinking about food, and instead thinking about the whole pool deck, which will probably be on Deck 11.
On the Wish, I think everybody wants the pools to be larger. The main family pools often get filled to their absolute maximum capacity, which makes moving around in them a chore. Also, it's impossible to maintain social distance when the pool is that full. A way Disney could implement larger pools on the Wish is by spreading them out, just like the restaurants! On the Magic-class ships, Goofy's Pool is located between the funnels, and the AquaLab pool is behind the Aft funnel. However, on the Dream-class ships, both family pools are found between the two funnels. The layout of the Magic-class ships works better, because like the poolside restaurants, having them spread out around the deck helps to distribute crowds between them. Instead of two small pools between the funnels, like on the Dream-class ships, there could be one large pool there, and a smaller, shallower one behind the Aft funnel. I'm not sure how large the pool between the funnels could be, since it must be able to be covered during deck parties. Maybe they'll do something like this:
