The Disney Dream Arrives at Florida's Port Canaveral

What a beautiful sight to begin the year. Our newest cruise ship, the Disney Dream, arrived home this week after sailing several thousand miles across the Atlantic Ocean and a crowd of 2,000 people turned out to see it. Her arrival marks the end of a nearly two-year construction journey and the start of a new era for Disney Cruise Line guests. We’ve added video from the day.

Oh, and did you see what caught Gary’s eye during a trip to the Magic Kingdom? A Custodial Cast Member used water as his paint and a broom as his brush to make some magic.

  • I loved getting to see the Dream arrive home. Even though I didn’t get to be there in person. Saw the video. Thank you so much for sharing the video with all of us. Great job on the video.

  • We saw the the guy with the broom and paint brush during the Halloween Party. He was really nice and really entertained the guests.
