Disney Treasure is set to carry on the beloved tradition of Disney Cruise Line, offering magnificent Broadway-style stage shows that will captivate audiences around the world. To create the perfect home for these unforgettable performances, Disney Imagineers and the dedicated crew at Meyer Werft shipyard are hard at work welding together the future Walt Disney Theatre aboard the ship.
Imagining the possibilities of what this theatre will become is exhilarating. Soon, this remarkable venue will be adorned with the magic of Disney tunes and brought to life by the heartwarming stories of our favourite Disney adventurers. From enchanting shows to awe-inspiring performances, the Walt Disney Theatre will be a place where dreams come true and where guests will create memories to last a lifetime.
As the construction of the Disney Treasure progresses, Disney Cruise Line eagerly anticipate the day when the curtain rises and this extraordinary theatre becomes a stage for incredible entertainment.
A significant milestone was achieved as the bow of the Disney Treasure was successfully mounted onto the forward section of the ship. This incredible photo showcases the meticulous effort of the shipyard team as they delicately use a crane to install the bow block.
With the assistance of a high-precision laser scanner, the bow block was carefully held in position until it was welded securely to the fore-ship. This precise process ensures that the bow is flawlessly integrated into the ship’s structure. As the Disney Treasure continues to take shape, this momentous occasion marks the first time that the iconic silhouette of the ship becomes recognisable.
The design of the Disney Treasure, like all ships in the esteemed Disney Cruise Line fleet, draws inspiration from the elegant ocean liners of the early 20th century, infused with a touch of modern sophistication. This nod to classic maritime aesthetics combined with a contemporary flair makes the ship truly remarkable.
The mounting of the bow is an important step forward in the construction of this extraordinary vessel.
Disney Treasure’s stunning bow has finally arrived by a barge, towed with the assistance of a helpful boat. This milestone marks the ship’s construction progress, bringing it ever closer to its grand debut.
In this photo, we can see the first step of the installation process of the ship’s bow filigree, with a large protective tarp covering it. The outline of this intricate design has already been sketched out on the ship’s surface in bold red, marking the beginning of the installation process. As the construction continues, the skilled artisans at the shipyard will work meticulously to bring this breathtaking artwork to life.
This incredible bow filigree, featuring a captivating portrait of Minnie Mouse and other beloved characters in adventurous silhouettes, is essential to the ship’s identity. The installation of this remarkable piece will add to the ship’s unique character and beauty.
In keeping with the tradition of Disney Cruise Line fleet ships, each vessel boasts its own unique and sophisticated artwork adorning its bow. This signature artwork, featured on ships like the Disney Magic, Disney Wonder, Disney Dream, Disney Fantasy, and the forthcoming Disney Wish, has always been a moment of anticipation and celebration during their construction. The Disney Treasure follows suit in this remarkable tradition.
Disney Cruise Line unveiled the enchanting bow filigree design for the Disney Treasure. This captivating artwork showcases a portrait of Minnie Mouse, donning her brand-new, adventure-ready outfit, and includes hidden silhouettes of other beloved characters. This specially crafted design, created to perfectly complement the ship’s adventurous theme, reflects Minnie’s spirit as a voyager. As the construction progresses, this exquisite artwork will be carefully installed on the bow of the ship, allowing all who sail on the Disney Treasure to enjoy its beauty.
Just like the other stunning vessels in the fleet, the Disney Treasure will have its own distinct and alluring bow artwork, captivating the hearts and imaginations of all who see it.
The atmosphere was filled with excitement and optimism as another significant milestone was reached for the Disney Treasure – the Keel Laying Ceremony. This time-honoured tradition symbolises a prosperous future for the ship and its crew. During the ceremony, a special coin, featuring a beautifully carved portrait of Captain Minnie Mouse in her stylish new adventure outfit, was placed beneath the keel.
Just like the traditions observed during the steel-cutting ceremony, the custom of keel laying has its roots in the era of wooden ships. The placement of the commemorative coin is believed to bring good fortune and blessings to the ship as it embarks on its upcoming voyages. This unique coin is not only a symbol of the ship’s journey but also a tribute to the indomitable spirit of Captain Minnie Mouse and her dedication to maritime adventures.
As the Disney Treasure continues to take shape, we can look forward to even more incredible moments and traditions that celebrate the timeless magic and imagination of Disney.
A highly anticipated delivery has arrived from Rostock, Germany – the Floating Engine Room Unit (FERU) for the magnificent Disney Treasure. This critical component is a major step towards the completion of the ship. Once the Disney Treasure sets sail, the FERU will serve as the powerhouse, housing the main motors and liquified natural gas tanks.
But that’s not all! The FERU is also responsible for housing all the necessary auxiliary machinery, including systems for cooling water, fuel, air supply, and other essential support systems. It truly is the heart and soul of the ship.
In the picture above, you can catch a glimpse of the FERU during its journey from Denmark. It’s a remarkable sight to see this vital piece of technology make its way to the shipyard, bringing the Disney Treasure one step closer to becoming a reality.
Disney Treasure has reached another milestone. One of the recognisable features of any Disney Cruise Line vessel is the iconic red funnels proudly standing tall on the top deck. Staying true to the timeless and elegant design of all Disney Cruise Line ships, the Disney Treasure will carry on this tradition by featuring these eye-catching funnels.
On 9 Feb 2023 the shipyard welcomed the arrival of the second funnel, all the way from Poland. Soon, it will be coated in a vibrant shade of bright red paint and carefully installed on the ship. With each new piece that arrives, the excitement surrounding the completion of the Disney Treasure grows.
A significant milestone was achieved as the team cut the very first piece of steel for the magnificent Disney Treasure.The Disney Cruise Line team describe the air being electric with sparks as a plasma cutter, housed within the yard’s laser cutting room, meticulously shaped the steel into the iconic silhouette of a Disney cruise ship. This momentous occasion marks the official start of construction and celebrates a longstanding maritime tradition.
Throughout history, shipbuilders have honoured the beginning of the construction process, and today’s steel-cutting ceremony carries on this meaningful tradition. While the materials and techniques may have evolved over the years, with steel replacing wood as the primary material, the spirit of this time-honoured tradition remains alive and well. The Disney Imagineers and crew are proud to be a part of this legacy as they embark on the exciting journey of bringing the Disney Treasure to life.
