In the past few days, Disney Cruise Lines have been making the announcement that the upcoming Disney Cruise line will depart from Orlando International Airport in Florida on January 22nd.
The news was first posted on the Cruise Line website and was confirmed by the company in a press release.
This announcement comes just a week after the company announced that it would be suspending operations at Orlando International in February due to a “global emergency”.
It is not yet clear what the global emergency is, but Disney has been in touch with the local authorities to discuss the closure of their facilities in Orlando.
Disney has been the largest operator of cruise ships in the world since it began operating them in 2003.
The cruise lines’ arrival in Florida comes on the heels of a large cruise ship terminal closure in Miami.
In January, Disney announced that the first ship to enter its Orlando International Terminal would be the new-generation Dreamliner.
On February 1, the company unveiled plans to expand its cruise ship operations to another airport in Miami, with the intention of launching a second ship to Orlando on February 10.
Although the Dreamliner will only be the first cruise ship to arrive in Orlando, the move comes at a time when Disney is trying to revitalise its brand.
The company has been under fire for the last few years for its business practices and image in the tourism industry.
Since the closure at Orlando, Disney has put together a list of its top cruise line customers, which include such destinations as Singapore, Paris, Shanghai and London.
While it is too early to determine if this announcement will lead to a further downturn in business, it does indicate that Disney has a new focus on its Orlando operations.
