The Disney Wish Arrived At Port Canaveral This Morning


It’s official. We finally got one of the new ships planned for the Disney Cruise Line. The Disney Wish docked in it’s new “home” at Port Canaveral this morning according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The first new ship in the Disney fleet in more than 10 years sailed into its new home port at about 5 a.m. greeted by hundreds of fans who either woke up early, or didn’t sleep at all waiting for the ship’s arrival.

The ship was taken by Disney on June 9th and it sailed from Europe to Florida. To celebrate about 250 Disney Cast Members apparently had an all night party and then were taken by bus to the port to welcome the ship early this morning.

Twitter offered the following looks at the ship!


I love the horn! That’s a nice touch Disney!

How exciting for those that were there when she arrived!

The Disney Wish will start sailings with customers on July 14th. Prior to that they will sail with media and employees starting on June 29th.

There are two more ships coming. One is set for 2024 and the other one is set for 2025.
