Disney Cruise Line announced its debut of the new float christened "Magic Meets the Sea"during the 95th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. The imaginatively designed "ship" is modeled after the newest ship in their fleet, Disney Wish.

"We are honored to collaborate with Macy's for this renowned event and build upon the shared legacy of creating magical memories year after year. Just like the Disney Wish, our float will be a celebration of enchanting Disney storytelling, beloved characters and wishes come true."

Nothing is magical without the loving Disney friends, who will complete the image about the Disney Wish. 15 of them will entertain the visitors from all over the country. Minnie will adorn the ship's bow; Aladin and Jasmine with their story retold in a Broadway style stage show on board;Cinderella's bronze statue standing proudly in the Grand Hall and many more surprises.
