Disney expanding operations at Port Canaveral

Disney Cruise Line’s operations in Port Canaveral, Fla., will be
expanded to accommodate new ships.

Under an agreement with the Canaveral Port Authority, Disney
will continue to have exclusive use of Terminal 8 for two ships and will have
preferential use of Terminal 10 for a third.

Disney’s new ships are expected to be delivered in 2021, 2022 and
2023, and two of them will homeport in Port Canaveral for at least their first
five years of operation. 

A new operating agreement will begin June 1, 2019, replacing
an existing agreement that was set to expire on Dec. 31, 2027. The new
agreement provides a 20-year primary term with two additional five-year
renewals. 

Initially, Disney will guarantee 150 port calls, but that
increases to 180 calls in 2023 and up to 216 in 2024 through the
remainder of the 20-year term. 

Disney’s two biggest ships, the Disney Dream and Disney
Fantasy, currently sail from Port Canaveral year-round. The Disney Magic and
Disney Wonder rotate homeports.
