Disney Dream Christening Ceremony

Published: January 24, 2011 at 9:25 AM

Disney Cruise Lines christened its newest and biggest ship, the Disney Dream, in a spectacular port-side show for dignitaries and assemble media. As two giant video screens parted to reveal the ship, anchored off shore for the show, a cast of hundreds of dancers, singers, marching bands and Disney characters, led by Mickey Mouse, filled a 16-foot champagne bottle with wishes and dreams. Once filled, the bottle was lifted by helicopter and “broken” over the port-side bow in a splash of fireworks and sparklers. Here is a video of some of the highlights

Nice boat that. Bet it cost a fair bob. Look forward to the day Disney announce the world's first cruise ship with on board rollercoaster. Unless Royal Carribean beat them to it. The race is on!

When Chief Brody says " You're gonna need a bigger boat" I wonder if he had something like this in mind ?
Looks awesome.
