Disney officially shopping for a west coast home for its Cruise Line

With two new mega sized cruise ships coming online (the first in 2011) and two successful west coast trips under its belt, there was little question that Disney Cruise Line would dock a permanent ship on the west coast. The only question was when and where. A story in the San Diego Union Tribune answers the when and looks hopefully at the where.

San Diego is vying with the San Pedro port in the Los Angeles area for the new Disney family-cruise business slated to begin in February 2011.

The San Diego Regional Economic Development Corp. put together a proposal to attract Disney, including up to $5 million in proposed financing from the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority to improve cruise-ship-terminal facilities, according to a staff report by the airport authority.

Now the question is, will the west coast get one of the new ships or one of the originals? And if so, should the Magic or Wonder go?
