Disney Cruise Line will add newbuilds in 2021, 2022 and 2023, the company announced at a Disney fan event in California on Saturday.

Disney Cruise Line is to build a third LNG-powered newbuild - a move that will nearly double its fleet by boosting its number to seven cruise ships.

The new delivery is scheduled for 2022, and joins ships announced previous year that are due in 2021 and 2023.

At the D23 Expo this weekend, Bob Chapek, Chairman of Walt Disney Parks & Resorts announced that the long-awaited Toy Story Land will be coming in 2018 to Disney's Hollywood Studios. "By the time all three new ships are sailing, we'll have almost doubled the size of our existing fleet".

The three new ships will be powered by liquefied natural gas and be approximately 135,000 gross tons with about 1,250 staterooms, making them slightly larger than the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy, which entered service in 2011 and 2012.

"All ship names, design plans and itineraries are still in development, with each of the ships expected to have their own unique experiences", the statement said.

The line's first two ships, the Magic and the Wonder, were introduced in 1998 and 1999.
