The Disney Dream returned to Port Canaveral on Thursday, December 10, 2020, joining the Disney Wonder which returned last month and the Disney Fantasy which returned on December 2nd. The Disney Dream arrived in Florida following an extended trip abroad which was part of a repatriation effort as well as an opportunity for a dry/wet dock in Brest, France.

The Disney Dream sailed to Europe in mid-August, spending over 3 months in dry/wet dock in Brest, France with a stop in Portland, England before charting a course back to Florida. The Disney Dream spent a brief time out of water in the Brest, France dry dock berth between September 23 – 27, 2020.
As part of the CDC’s conditional sail order, each ship will need to earn certification to resume cruise operations and via test cruises. The arrival of three of the fleet’s four ships back in Florida within the CDC’s jurisdiction is a step in the right direction. While this is a positive step forward, there are many hurdles left to cross before cruising resumes.
At this time, the Disney Magic remains in Europe, spending most of her days docked in Dover.
