Fun Facts About A Disney Cruise
*Over 500,000 people will be sailing on Disney Cruise Lines annually
*Cruise Terminal 8, the Disney Cruise Line Terminal, was completed and dedicated on November 17, 1997. The $27 million, 70,000-square-foot facility is Port Canaveral's third ultra-modern mega-ship terminal, and will be the exclusive home of Disney Cruise Line's first two ships, the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder
*The Disney Magic is one of the three largest ships of the world
*Built by Fincantieri, the Magic cost $350 million
*A different Broadway- style stage show each night in the Walt Disney Theatre Beat Street aboard the Disney Magic, Route 66 aboard the Disney Wonder, two night time entertainment districts featuring a variety of unparalleled excitement designed exclusively for adults.
*In a month of cruises on the Disney Wonder, 15,776 cans of Coca-Cola will be consumed. To play '99 Cans of Coke on the wall' you would need a wall 3,616 feet long and you'd have to sing the song for two straight days to get to the end.
*There are 5,390 pillows on board.
*Disney Cruise Line will transport approximately 10,000 suitcases per operating day. If each bag weighs 15 pounds, the team will get a great daily workout: lifting 75 tons.
*Bath-and-a-Half Innovation in the Largest Staterooms: All the 875 staterooms aboard the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder are 25 percent larger than the current industry average. Many also feature an industry first, a bathroom-and-a-half, featuring separate bath facilities.
We're counting down the days...3 more days until we leave!
