Subject to change, currently Disney Wish is expected to "pass Jetty Park shortly after 5:00 a.m. and proceed to the West Turning Basin, where she will dock at CT8 by 5:40 a.m."

Visitors may view the arrival of Disney Wish from Jetty Park/The Cove district.

Access to viewing points at Port Canaveral will be limited.

Traffic in/around the Port will be controlled.

Jetty Park will open at 4 am on Monday.

Port CEO Captain John Murray said they had anticipated that homecoming of Disney Wish for some time, and they knew that their Port community was excited to watch her arrive at the Port.

“Our public safety team has worked with Brevard County Sheriff’s Office to ensure access to viewing points while maintaining our port wide focus on public safety.”

The plan was jointly developed by BCSO-Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Canaveral Port Authority Public Safety, and Canaveral Fire Rescue to ensure public safety, minimize traffic congestion, and promote a safe environment for Port contractors, tenants, employees, and the community.

Port Canaveral recommends that visitors and guests consider there might be limitations for public parking at the Port.
