Following its New York christening a few days ago, the newest Disney Cruise Line ship, the Disney Fantasy, sailed into to its homeport in Port Canaveral, Fla. early this morning, marking the occasion with fireworks bursts over the ocean waters, with characters and fans cheering its arrival. Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, and Donald Duck all donned their best sailing attire to watch as the Fantasy approached.

The Disney Fantasy’s maiden voyage will set sail on March 31, the embarking on seven-night sailings, alternating between Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries, with a stop at Castaway Cay, Disney’s own private island in The Bahamas. Prior to that, the Fantasy will sail a series of Inaugural preview cruises.

With a guest capacity of up to 4,000, the Disney Fantasy is the second of two new, and significantly larger, ships that are being added to the Disney fleet, also including the Disney Dream, which arrived in early 2011.

Now in Florida, the Disney Fantasy is expected to generate more than 500 jobs in the area and attract thousands of additional visitors to the port, according to an economic impact study by Martin Associates.

“Not only is the arrival of the Disney Fantasy an important milestone for our business, it will also have a positive impact on the Central Florida community,” said Karl Holz, president of Disney Cruise Line. “With our fourth ship, we are able to generate more jobs and economic activity for the region while delivering even more cruising options for families to share unforgettable cruise experiences with us.”

“We are excited to welcome the Disney Fantasy home,” said Port Canaveral Chief Executive Officer Stan Payne. “The arrival of the Disney Dream last year made a significant economic impact on Central Florida and we know the Disney Fantasy will add to that dramatically. We have seen our local businesses benefit when a ship of this magnitude and special Disney magic becomes part of our community.”

    Do not buy Men’s or Women’s luxury watches
    too cheap because the possibility of fraud is always present.

    Luxury Watch Company’s take out limited edition watches which are priceless. Remove the watch from your wrist when winding so as not to place undue pressure on the stem.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of
    hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to
    protect against hackers?
