Walt Disney to get into cruises

Walt Disney Co. will enter the cruise business as early as 1998, with a Florida-based ship making three- and four-day Caribbean cruises.

Disney is looking at Port Canaveral, Miami and Tampa as potential ports, said Arthur Rodney, a 24-year cruise industry veteran named yesterday as president of Disney's cruise operation.

The cruises will be sold as part of weeklong Disney vacations, with remaining time spent at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando.
