Disney Cruise Line Is on the Move; Could Australia Be the Next New Port?

The newest ship to launch with Disney Cruise Line is setting sail next month! With the launch of the Disney Wish, we have already seen some shuffling around as the Disney Dream recently departed from Port Canaveral, which has been her departure port for just over the past decade.

In addition to moving ships around to new departure sites and planning for upcoming ports of call, Disney Cruise Line recently made an interesting registration.

Disney Fanatic shared the details of the new registration listed on with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) by Magical Cruise Company, Ltd., which is the parent company of Disney Cruise Line.

Registrations listed by Magical Cruise Company, Ltd. are typically for locations where Disney Cruise Line ships have home ports. Florida is of course on the list, with regular departure ports in Port Canaveral as well as in Miami, along with California and Alaska, among others.

With the Disney Dream moving out of Port Canaveral to make room for the Disney Wish, and Disney Cruise Lines’ other ships (the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, and Disney Fantasy) in operation, as well as the previous announcement that two new ships will be added to the line at a later date, it is not outlandish to assume that Disney would be on the lookout for new departure ports.

In fact, Australia and the Oceania region, in general, are entirely underserved by Disney Cruise Line, especially considering that Adventures by Disney already includes Australian excursions, so having a departure port in this area would make sense for those looking to extend their vacations.

Disney has not made any official announcements regarding the possibility of sites in Australia either as a terminal or a port of call nor has any news come out regarding the development of the two new ships that were previously announced to be joining the fleet in years to come. We will keep you updated on any new developments from Disney Cruise Line as we learn more here at Disney Tips.
