Disney Head Hints At More Ships, Among Other Initiatives

Disney Cruise Line is poised to augment its current fleet of two ships according to Jay Rasulo chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Rasulo hinted at growth for Disney Cruise Line along with other possible Disney initiatives at a recent investor conference. "Disney Cruise Line is primed for growth beyond its two ships," said Rasulo. DCL currently operates the Wonder and Magic. Rasulo also mentioned the possibility of building Disney water parks here in the U.S. or abroad and creating Disney resort properties outside of major gateway cities. "We could build destination resorts in exotic locations or boutique branded hotels at a variety of price points," he said. The idea revolves around providing families with a Disney vacation experience without the theme park. Disney is also exploring new theme park ideas, which could include niche parks, serving smaller more targeted audiences.
