A port terminal for a Disney cruise ship was briefly evacuated Thursday after a bomb-sniffing dog alerted handlers to something while inspecting a load of supplies.
About 330 passengers were aboard Disney Wonder when the terminal at Port Canaveral was closed.
Passengers were asked to stay on the 964-foot vessel while those in the terminal were moved to a parking lot.
The bomb squad of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office inspected a stack of mattresses on a pallet, and declared the area secure after an 80-minute delay.
There was no indication why the dog, part of a private security firm contracted by the Canaveral Port Authority, gave the false positive.
The Wonder is scheduled to depart for a three-day Caribbean cruise later Thursday.
