Arriving in Grand Fashion Tuesday Morning is the long waited Disney Dream. After a long journey across the Atlantic it has made its way to Port Canaveral. Hooray!!

Jason Garcia at the Orlando Sentinel is reporting on this historic news:

Disney’s newest cruise ship, the 4,000-passenger Disney Dream, pulled into Port Canaveral this morning just after sunrise.

The ship, which cost Disney more than $900 million, was met with a water cannon salute and multiple helicopters buzzing overhead. Disney launched firworks from the ship as it entered the Port Canaveral channel and again just before it pulled up to the pier.

Disney has big expectations for the ship, which is about 50 percent larger than the existing Magic and Wonder vessels. Disney Cruise Line President Karl Holz said the company is pleased with the pace of bookings so far for the Dream.

The ship will depart on its maiden voyage Jan. 26.
