Disney Planning Not Two, But Three New Ships

Disney Cruise Line is planning not two, but three new ships in the next phase of expansion. By the time these three ships are sailing, they’ll have nearly doubled the size of our fleet! That means more families than ever before will be visiting spectacular destinations around the globe and creating magical memories at sea!

Last year, Disney told everyone that two new ships were going to be built at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany with scheduled completion dates of 2021 and 2023. This additional ship will be built at the same shipyard and is scheduled to be completed in 2022.

“We decided two ships wouldn’t be enough to hold all of the exciting new experiences we have been dreaming up to take family cruise vacations to a whole new level with immersive Disney storytelling, world-class family entertainment, and imaginative innovations that are fantastically fun and uniquely Disney,” Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, said.

All ship names, design plans and itineraries are still in development, with each of the ships expected to have their own unique experiences. The three new ships will be powered by clean-burning liquefied natural gas and be the same size – approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 guest staterooms planned – which is slightly larger than the newest Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.

With a legacy of revolutionary design, Disney Cruise Line’s new ships will usher in the next generation of innovative cruise experiences designed especially for families that will transform the art-of-cruising and take guests on adventures in a way never dreamed of before.

Top 15 Reasons for Staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel

Throughout the years, I have been lucky enough to  stay in all three Disneyland Resort Hotels.  If you are looking for that extra special something on your next Disneyland vacation, this is it!  Below you will find a list of the many benefits of staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel.  Trust me when I say, Disneyland can get more magical than it already is, and staying at one of these hotels can make a big difference!

dtnemail-Offer_0801ZZ_2287TA_1_-4e877

1. Guests have quick and easy access to the Disneyland parks and Downtown Disney – they are literally steps away!

2. Disneyland Resorts are the top rated hotels in the Anaheim area – All Disney Resorts are AAA Diamond rated.

3. Resort rooms are much nicer and more spacious than the surrounding hotels.

4. You can request a wake up call from your favorite Disney characters.

5. Step into the storytelling and magic of Disney everywhere you go – Disney touches are in your rooms, the lobby, pool area, restaurants, even in the carpet and wall paper! You will be completely immersed in the magic!

6. Get Disney’s legendary quality services and help 24 hours a day – If something goes wrong or you have questions, a Disney cast member will be right there to help. Disney has very high standards when hiring their cast members. They are polite and always willing to help. They will go the extra mile!

7. Each day guests have the opportunity to take advantage of the Early Morning Extra Hour into the parks. So, with a five day park ticket guests will be able to enter into the parks an hour before the parks open to the general public for five days. This is particularly nice for Disney’s California Adventure Park. As you may know, Radiator Springs Racers attraction is extremely popular and the line is always long. Having the extra hour in the morning not only saves you time, but within the first hour you can ride this attraction several times. We usually ride it three times during this hour.  The same can be true for any of your favorite attractions at either park.

8. Resort pools are larger and are nicer than the surrounding area hotels, plus, each resort includes fun slides.

9. Each of the Disney Resorts have several activities that take place every day that the whole family can enjoy including: arts and crafts, special showings of Disney films, pool parties, computer games, and dinner at the fun-filled child activity center. You don’t get anything like this at the other hotels.

10. Use your “Key to the Magic” card (room key) to charge meals and merchandise purchases right to your room.

11. Have merchandise delivered right to your hotel with Package Express Services at no extra charge.

12. If you’re staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa you have a private entrance into Disney’s California Adventure. In the afternoon, only Disney Resort guests can use this entrance.

13. When staying at one of the Disney hotels you can enjoy many of the amenities from all three hotels including the Mandara Spa at the Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

14. Guests have access to special tours available exclusively to Disney Resort guests (Experiences change pretty regularly. Ask the front desk when you arrive what they are during your stay).

15. Music from the fireworks and/or World of Color can be listened to in each guest room.  If your room is facing the parks, you can watch the shows from your hotel.

If you are planning a trip to Disneyland, please contact me for more information and deals.
