Even though all sailings are currently suspended, Disney Cruise Line continues to stay its course as progress on current projects continue.

At Port Canaveral — the closest Disney Cruise Line port to the Walt Disney World Resort — construction continues on the renovations to the Disney Cruise Line terminal. The waterside part of the project is scheduled to be completed on April 1, 2021, and the passenger terminal is scheduled to be completed on April 6.

At a Board of Commissioners meeting on October 28, Port Canaveral presented drone footage of the construction which Disney Cruise Blog put into the following video:

Beginning construction in February, the renovations are being done to both the waterside and landside of the terminals.

On the landside, the project includes a massive renovation to the epoxy terrazzo floor which has been a part of the terminal since 1998, a new jet-way styled boarding bridge, and upgrades to the first-floor luggage area.

Port Canaveral has also begun construction of a 2,800 square foot building expansion for debarkation and an expanded drop-off area.

On the waterside, work is being done in preparation for accomodating Disney’s newest and biggest ship, the Disney Wish. Those upgrades include new monopile mooring dolphins with 150 metric ton bollards, four new 125 metric ton mooring bollards, and 16 new foam filled fenders.
