BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – With Disney Cruise Lines poised to increase its presence at Port Canaveral, the Canaveral Port Authority agreed to sanction a study to determine how to best accommodate the company’s expansion at the port.

During the Port Commission meeting on Wednesday morning, the commissioners agreed 5-0 to have a feasibility study done over the next 90 days, at a cost of about $190,000, to examine upgrades to Cruise Terminals 8 and 10 to service an additional year-around ship.

Disney has had a presence at Port Canaveral since 1985 when it became a licensed partner with Premier Cruise lines, and Port Canaveral is currently the homeport for the Disney 1,114-foot, 130,00-ton sister ships Dream and Fantasy.
