Disney Cruise Line‘s terminal at Port Canaveral will be closing for five months to undergo a renovations.
Cruise Terminal 8 (Disney’s terminal) will be closed from June – October 2020. Fortunately, thie renovation will not impace any DCL sailings. Disney has made an agreement to use Cruise Terminal 10 in the interim. Cruise Terminal 10 is located right next to Terminal 10 so this should not cause too much of an issue for those traveling next year.
In previous years, renovations to Disney’s terminal at Port Canaveral were done during regular operations or on non-cruise days. Because Terminal 8 needs extensive renovation, Port Canaveral has decided to shut it down in order to make the necessary changes. The terminal needs to be shut down so that the majority of the changes can be made before the Disney Wish arrives in early 2022.
According to Disney Cruise Line Blog, the renovations will include the installation of a new curtain wall in the current building, seating replacement, new ticket counters, IT infrastructure replacement, extending the drop-off canopy, and structural steel installation.
