Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Dream, one of the longest ships in the world and the largest ship to be built in Germany to date, left the shipyard yesterday evening with the aid of a tugboat. The ship will remain in the Meyer Werft shipyard’s harbor where she will first undergo a series of several technical tests as internal construction is completed.
She is expected to be conveyed down the river Ems at an as-of-yet specified date in mid-November at which point she’ll begin crossing the Atlantic for her anticipated January 4 arrival at Port Canaveral.

If there is one film any fan of Disney should see, it’s Disney’s own documentary, Waking Sleeping Beauty. Comprised of tons of archival and personal footage, the documentary takes a no-holds-barred look at the state of The Walt Disney Company in the early 1980s when Hollywood big shots Michael Eisner, Jeffrey Katzenberg and all showed up in the parking lot with their fancy cars and turned the company and the animation department on its ear, taking it from the lows of The Black Cauldron to the highs of a series of animated films that helped to define a generation.
