Disney Cruise Line’s Cruise Terminal 8 in Port Canaveral to Close for 5 Months in 2020


Disney Cruise Line (DCL) passengers should know a change to cruises embarking and debarking from Port Canaveral is coming next year.

Documents revealed ahead of Wednesday’s Port Canaveral board of commission meeting show that the cruise line’s Cruise Terminal 8 will be closed for a 5-month refurbishment from June to October, 2020, according to Disney Cruise Line Blog.

During the refurbishment, DCL will use Cruise Terminal 10 as its hub for embarkation and debarkation from Port Canaveral, located conveniently next to Cruise Terminal 8. No sailings are expected to be impacted by this refurbishment beyond this change.

This agreement was agreed previously to by DCL and Canaveral Port Authority (CPA). With then pending arrival of the Disney Wish in 2022, Disney is looking to do an extensive rehab of its cruise terminal…

…including “demolition, piles, installation of a new curtain wall in the existing building, seating replacement, ticket counters removal, IT infrastructure replacement, the extension of the drop-off canopy and structural steel installation.”

This coming Wednesday, CPA commissioners are expected to vote on an agenda item for the early works of refurbishment. Stay tuned to Orlando Theme Park Zone as we cover this refurbishment in the blog section of the website.
