Two new ships not enough, so Disney to build one more

The ship announcement was made Saturday at the Disney Fan Cub's D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif.

Disney Parks announced during their panel today at D23 Expo 2017 that Disney Hollywood Studios' upcoming Toy Story Land will open next summer.


Disney Cruise Line upped its newbuild order at Meyer Werft with a third ship and revealed all three will be powered by LNG. Those are slated to launch in 2021 and 2023. With a legacy of revolutionary design, Disney Cruise Line's new ships will usher in the next generation of innovative cruise experiences designed especially for families that will transform the art-of-cruising and take guests on adventures in a way never dreamed of before. 'By the time all three new ships are sailing, we'll have almost doubled the size of our existing fleet'.

All will be approximately 135,000gt with about 1,250 passenger staterooms-slightly larger than 2011's Disney Dream and 2012's Disney Fantasy, at 128,000gt and the same number of staterooms. There are so many travelers that haven't tried cruising, so it helps to keep reminding them why they should eventually give it a try. With this major increase in capacity and nearly doubling their fleet, it is likely that Disney Cruise Line will position a ship full-time in Miami, where they can capture a significant number of guests from Central & South America. Disney announced yesterday, at D23, that a third ship is being built in-addition to two ships announced previous year. It now operates four ships, which in the US sail from San Diego, Miami and Port Canaveral in Florida, New York City, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Galveston, Texas.
