The Disney Dream in Port Canaveral, By: Matt Stroshane

Guests departing on the Disney Dream voyage yesterday had an extraordinary view of the space shuttle Discovery as it blasted off from the nearby Kennedy Space Center for its final launch.

The mission marks Discovery’s last liftoff for NASA’s oldest orbiter. We captured a photo in Port Canaveral with the newest ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet in the foreground so you can also enjoy this unique spectacle.

What was awesome was when they blew their horn and it was “when you wish upon a star” as the shuttle was going up

The last time i visited the parks, I saw a space shuttle taking off from the air in a jet airliner!

I would love to have that picture of the Dream and Shuttle Discovery taking off as my desktop background. Is there a way to get a better resolution picture some where?
