Following the recent announcement of the Wish's Grand Hall Statue, a website dedicated to the Wish was launched. As of now, the website doesn't have any new information about the Wish, but it will probably be where information about it is first announced.
Upon opening the website, visitors are greeted by the Cinderella statue announcement video and the phrase, "A Wish Come True". Under that, the website reaffirms that the Wish will launch in summer 2022, and below that is a button where users can enter their email address associated with their Disney account to get email notifications about Wish news. I've already signed up for the email notifications, and if you haven't already, I recommend you sign up for them if you're looking forward to the Wish.
Lower on the page is a quote about the Wish from Laura Cabo, a Portfolio Creative Executive for Walt Disney Imagineering. She says, "Daring to dream even bigger, our Imagineers are creating a breathtaking new world of enchantment aboard the Disney Wish. Upon arrival, families will step into the Grand Hall, a veritable castle on the seas rising 3 decks in height and literally shimmering with regal details. Inspired by classic Disney fairytales, this space will serve as the majestic heart of the ship, welcoming and delighting all ages and setting the tone for a magical voyage ahead." Unfortunately, she didn't go into details about the "breathtaking new world of enchantment", so we'll have to wait to find out more about it.
That's everything from the Wish's new website! As I said earlier, this website will probably be where new information about the ship gets announced, so it can't hurt to check it occasionally. Having this website operational might mean that new information is coming sometime soon. Maybe the deck plans will be announced soon. The fifth box is still there. I'm thinking that 2021 is going to be a big year for Disney Cruise Line news, and I'm excited to see what happens!

The Disney Cruise Line website was recently updated. There weren't any major changes, like adding the Wish's deck plans, but they did remove "finder.deck-plans.facet-bar.ship-wish". It was replaced with an empty box:
Besides that, the site mainly received a minor visual update. However, there were a few things I found that were changed, and some of them are pretty nice features. Let's take a look!
Starting out on the website's homepage, the cruise finder bar has been changed.
This change may appear to be just a minor cosmetic change, but clicking on the search tabs reveals that there was a substantial change made.
The cruise date selection used to just be a list of months, and users could click on the months they wanted to see cruises for. Now, though, it's much more friendly, as it asks a question! "When would you like to sail?" It also changed the look and size of the month boxes, which makes them easier to select, especially on a mobile device.
