IT TAKES a special kind of magic to be able to turn the port of Southampton into a tropical island, but Disney Cruise Line managed it.
The line put down 400 tons of sand, planted 100 palm trees and even hired a Caribbean steel band to create an exotic backdrop to showcase its second ship, Disney Wonder, last Wednesday.
One of Backchat's spies said: "It was all realistically tacky, but great fun."
She then had to go as Pluto was about to give her a big hug.
Like its sister ship, Disney Magic, launched last year, the ship has all the usual Disney traits.
The ship's red funnel has Mickey Mouse ears and Mickey, Minnie and other characters are on board.
There is also an entire deck dedicated to children, where everything, including the toilets, is miniature-sized.
