BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Port Canaveral today released its plan for public access to  view the arrival of Disney Cruise Line’s newest cruise ship, the Disney Wish, which is scheduled to arrive at Port Canaveral early Monday morning, June 20 at Cruise Terminal 8.

Subject to change, currently the Disney Wish is expected to pass Jetty Park shortly after 5 a.m. and proceed to the West Turning Basin, where she will dock at Cruise Terminal 8 by 5:40 a.m.

Visitors may view the Disney Wish’s arrival from Jetty Park, or from The Cove district.

Port officials said access to viewing points will be limited and traffic in and around the Port will be controlled. Jetty Park will open at 4 a.m. on Monday, June 20.

“We have anticipated this homecoming of the Disney Wish for some time, and we know that our Port community is excited to watch her arrive at the Port,” said Port CEO Capt. John Murray.

“Our public safety team has worked with Brevard County Sheriff’s Office to ensure access to viewing points while maintaining our port-wide focus on public safety.”

The Port’s plan was jointly developed by Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Canaveral Fire Rescue, and Canaveral Port Authority Public Safety to minimize traffic congestion, ensure public safety, and promote a safe environment for Port employees, contractors, tenants, and the community.

Port Canaveral highly recommends that visitors and guests consider there may be limitations for public parking at the Port on Monday.

No drone photography will be permitted from the Port without prior approval from CPA’s Public Safety and Security Department.
