Meyer Werft Floats out Disney Dream

Disney Dream was floated out of Meyer Werft's covered building dock Saturday evening (October 30, 2010) at the Papenburg (Germany) yard. At 128,000 tons, it is the largest passenger ship ever built at Meyer Werft or at any yard in Germany. Disney Dream is scheduled to leave the yard for its precarious conveyance down the Ems River in two weeks for sea trials. Disney Dream will enter service on January 26, 2011.

The unusual evening float out (they are usually scheduled for just after dawn) was to accommodate some special Disney flair - a fireworks display over the ship lighting up the Papenburg sky. 
Yep. Disney has arrived at Meyer Werft.
