Disney May Add Ship
Is Disney Cruise Line spawning a sibling? Could be, says DCL’s Mark Jaronski, who notes that the line has formed a design team -- consisting of cruise executives and Walt Disney Imagineers -- to explore the possibility of adding a third ship to the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder fleet. They also have “begun formal discussions” with European shipyards though the talks are less about contract negotiations than they are about design features and deployment possibilities.

Still, any possible expansion plan remains a pie-in-the-sky endeavor for now; Jaronski says the team plans to investigate options for at least a year before making a decision about whether to go forward -- or remain a two-ship line. “Just because we’ve formed a design team does not necessarily mean we are building a ship at this time,” he says.

In other Disney Cruise Line news, the line is planning to launch a “kids fly free” program during the low-season winter cruise period that falls between New Year’s and Spring Break. Details will follow later this week.
