The Disney Cruise Line is owned and operated by Walt Disney Park and Resorts, a division of the Walt Disney Company. The Cruise to Disney Line was launched in 1998 with one cruise ship, the Disney Magic. One year later another cruise ship, the Disney Wonder, has made its maiden voyage. Each ship can accommodate up to 2,400 passengers. A third ship, the Disney Dream, was launched in 2011 and is significantly larger than the first two ships, able to accommodate about 4,000 passengers. The latest addition to the Disney cruise fleet, the Disney Fantasy, is scheduled to make its maiden voyage in 2012 and is also designed to accommodate 4,000 passengers.
