Facts About Disney Cruise Line
Disney Cruise Line is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company and was incorporated in 1996 as Magical Cruise Company. Prior to becoming Disney Cruise Line, Disney had relationships with other cruise lines to offer vacation packages that included Disney hotels and resorts.
