Port Canaveral: Plan for Viewing Disney Wish Arrival on Monday, June 20
Port Canaveral released its plan for public access to the Port to view the arrival of Disney Cruise Line’s new cruise ship, the Disney Wish, which is scheduled to arrive at Port Canaveral early Monday morning, June 20th to Cruise Terminal 8 (CT8).
Subject to change, currently the Disney Wish is expected to pass Jetty Park shortly after 5:00 a.m. and proceed to the West Turning Basin, where she will dock at CT8 by 5:40 a.m. Visitors may view the Disney Wish’s arrival and from Jetty Park, or from The Cove district.
Access to viewing points at Port Canaveral will be limited, and traffic in and around the Port will be controlled. Jetty Park will open at 4 a.m. on Monday, June 20.
“We have anticipated this homecoming of the Disney Wish for some time, and we know that our Port community is excited to watch her arrive at the Port,” said Port CEO Capt. John Murray. “Our public safety team has worked with Brevard County Sheriff’s Office to ensure access to viewing points while maintaining our port wide focus on public safety.”
The Port’s plan was jointly developed by Brevard County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO), Canaveral Fire Rescue and Canaveral Port Authority Public Safety to minimize traffic congestion, ensure public safety, and promote a safe environment for Port employees, contractors, tenants, and the community.
Port Canaveral highly recommends that visitors and guests consider there may be limitations for public parking at the Port on Monday.
No drone photography will be permitted from the Port without prior approval of CPA’s Public Safety and Security Department.
Electronic signs on Port Canaveral roadways and intersections will advise motorists of road restrictions, as well as when parking capacity has been reached at designated parking areas. Brevard County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) deputies will monitor traffic, control key traffic intersections, ensure boater access to the Freddie Patrick Park boat ramps, and enforce parking on and around the Port.
