Yesterday, during the Canaveral Port Authority Board of Commissioners meeting, Port CEO Captain John Murray discussed the Florida port’s 2021 budget plan, while Vice President of Engineering, Construction, and Facilities Bill Crowe shared photos of current construction progress on Terminal 8, where Disney Cruise Line is located.

Perhaps most notably, Crowe showcased photos of the Cruise Terminal 8 and 10 waterside, which is where Disney’s new cruise ship, the Disney Wish, is expected to sail from beginning next year. This project should be completed by April 1, 2021.

Crow also shared multiple “Engineering Update” slides showcasing various changes to the Disney Cruise Line terminal at Port Canaveral. From this update, we now know that current construction includes repairs to the iconic terrazzo flooring in the terminal, masonry wall construction, and structural steel installation.

On the exterior of the terminal, structural steel erection and metal decking installation are currently underway, as seen in all three of these Port Canaveral construction update slides.

Currently, Disney Cruise Line vacationers will have to wait until at least November 2020 to board any ship in the Disney fleet. The Walt Disney Company has shared the following update on the official Disney Cruise Line website:

In alignment with the announcement made on August 5, 2020 by Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) regarding the voluntary extension of suspended passenger operations from U.S. ports, Disney Cruise Line is cancelling sailings through at least October 31, 2020.

Guests booked on affected sailings who have paid their reservation in full will be offered the choice of a cruise credit to be used for a future sailing or a full refund.
