ORLANDO — Walt Disney Co. is moving all four of is cruise ships to Florida during the first half of 2014.

The company announced the decision last week after an extended run on the U.S. west coast. Officials say the weak European economy played a role in the decision to bring the ships to Florida.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the 2,700-passenger ship Disney Wonder will remain in Miami at least through the first five months of 2014. It has spent extended time sailing from Los Angeles.

The company's original ship, the Disney Magic, will return to Port Canaveral in January 2014. It has sailed out of New York and Galveston, Texas, this year and will spend time in Europe in 2013.

The ships join Port Canaveral-based Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.
