The project is expected to be completed by fall of 2023. A 15-year partnership between the county and Disney Cruise Line will include one ship that will be homeported in Port Everglades year-round beginning fall 2023, joined by a second seasonal ship in 2025.
Disney's original homeport is Port Canaveral.
