Disney Dream sets sail from Port Canaveral on test cruise

Hundreds of Disney Cruise Line employees are onboard the Disney Dream this weekend, all playing the role of "passengers" as the ship set sail on a test cruise.

The passengers began boarding on Saturday afternoon, and the ship left port at around 4 p.m.

The Disney Dream's previously scheduled test sailing in late June was canceled after five out of nearly 600 crew members on the ship tested positive for COVID-19.

The cruise ship Mardi Gras is also ready to set sail in two weeks. That will be the first paid passenger cruise at Port Canaveral.
