Peter Langman, Panama Canal Pilot, helps Mickey Mouse guide the Disney Magic through the Miraflores Locks.
Mickey Mouse has come a long way from “Steamboat Willie.” Moving from riverboats
to cruise ships, Mickey’s ship, the Disney Magic, crossed the Panama Canal on Friday, May 20, marking the ship’s first-ever cruise through the engineering marvel. And, it happened just in time to celebrate Disneyland’s 50th Anniversary.
Greeting the Disney Magic was Dr. Stanley Muschett, manager of executive administration at the Panama Canal Authority (ACP), who presented the ship’s captain with a plaque on behalf of the ACP.
