The Walt Disney Company has announced plans to expand its cruise business by adding two new ocean liners. Scheduled to launch in 2011 and 2012, the ships will more than double the company's passenger capacity. According to Disney Cruise Line, the company has been setting sail with load factors of nearly 150 percent. The new 122,000-ton cruise liners will have 1,250 staterooms and be two decks taller than the two existing ships, Disney Magic and Disney Wonder, which weigh in at 83,000 tons.
