November 25, 2008 04:06PM

Port Canaveral handed out a multimillion-dollar contract to expand Disney Cruise Line’s terminal before the first of the company’s new mega-liners arrives. The $4.7 million contract with Misener Marine Construction will pay for a new, deep-water sea wall and other projects. Canaveral is also seeking bids from contractors to build a 1,000-space parking garage for Disney passengers. The construction is to be completed by late 2010. The first of Disney’s two new cruise ships, which will hold 4,000 passengers each, is scheduled to set sail in 2011.
