Disney Cruise Vacations Will Launch in Japan with New Deal Between OLC and Disney

Disney Cruise Vacations Will Launch in Japan with a New Deal Between OLC and Disney. From the Disney Press Room: Today, we announced a new agreement with Oriental Land Co., Ltd. (OLC) that will bring year-round Disney cruise vacations to Japan! . Under a recently signed agreement, OLC will operate a Disney-branded cruise business in Japan, expected to commence by early 2029.

This is the latest evolution in our over 40-year relationship with OLC, which owns and operates the magical Tokyo Disney Resort

A new Disney cruise ship, to be registered and based in Japan year-round, will be constructed at Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, with imaginative designs created by Walt Disney Imagineering. A sister ship to the popular Disney Wish, it will feature many guest-favorite venues and experiences from that ship with select modifications specially designed with Japanese guests in mind. It is expected to be approximately 140,000 gross tons and powered by liquefied natural gas, with about 1,250 staterooms.
