The ships will be considerably larger than the 83,000-ton, 1,760-passenger Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. They'll be two decks higher and will carry 2,500 passengers, double occupancy. Remember, however that Disney's load factor is the highest in the industry at about 150 percent (due to the abundance of kids). The ship can carry up to 4,000 at full capacity; currently, Disney Magic and Disney Wonder can carry a full capacity of 2,400.
The Disney Cruise Line has released details of its cruise ship named Disney Dream that will set sail in 2011. The ship's design offers a blend of Art Deco style and Disney whimsy. Some of the unique features on the ship include;
