Today is a big day in the history of the Disney Cruise Line, the Disney Magic arrived in Galveston, Texas to kick off the Disney Cruise Line’s inaugural season sailing from the Port of Galveston. In 2012 and 2013, Disney Cruise Line will sail from Galveston on a variety of itineraries to the Caribbean and Bahamas, with some cruises taking guests to the Walt Disney World Resort and Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay.
“We are excited to add even more variety to our offering of itineraries from the Port of Galveston,” Disney Cruise Line President Karl Holz said in a statement. “The addition of shorter getaway cruises and voyages that call on our most popular port of call, Disney’s Castaway Cay, rounds out an impressive array of itinerary options from Galveston.”
To salute the arrival of the Disney Magic to the Lone Star State, members of the Ghostriders equestrian drill team from Houston, galloped nearby as the ship sailed into port.
