“The ship is ready for prime time!” exclaimed Walt Disney Imagineer Frank de Heer, VP of New Ship Development. Large-scale construction on the Disney Dream is finished, and the shipbuilders move onto the final finishing phase of the ship before it sails to the United States. Thousands of spectators and media, including friends of the DIS Unplugged Emiel and Yvette van Leeuwen, were on hand at the Meyer Werft shipyard to document the float out, and Disney recently released a video of the celebration. The media blitz to hype the new ship has officially begun, with a segment aired by ABC’s Good Morning America this morning. Continue after the break to watch both new videos. Update 11/8/10: Disney’s ride-through video of the AquaDuck water coaster added.
