Disney Cruise Line’s Port Canaveral Terminal to Close for Extensive Refurbishment in June 2020 Ahead of Disney Wish Arrival
Disney Cruise Line passengers should be aware of a change to cruises embarking and debarking from Port Canaveral. According to Disney Cruise Line Blog, documents revealed ahead of Wednesday’s Port Canaveral board of commission meeting show that the cruise line’s Cruise Terminal 8 (CT8) will be closed for a five-month refurbishment from June to October of next year.
During this refurbishment, Disney Cruise Line will utilize Cruise Terminal 10 (CT10) as its hub for embarkation and debarkation from Port Canaveral, conveniently located next to CT8. No sailings are expected to be impacted by this refurbishment beyond this change. This arrangement was previously agreed to by Disney and the Canaveral Port Authority.
With the pending arrival of the Disney Wish in 2022, Disney is seeking the opportunity to do an extensive rehab of its cruise terminal, including “demolition, piles, installation of a new curtain wall in the existing building, seating replacement, ticket counters removal, IT infrastructure replacement, the extension of the drop-off canopy and structural steel installation.”
On Wednesday, Canaveral Port Authority commissioners are expected to vote on an agenda item for the early works of the refurbishment.
