The magic of Disney has entertained millions, but when Roy E. Disney takes to the sea, there's another kind of magic at work: that of the ocean and wind, the sun and moon. "We're sailing over to Catalina at sunset one Friday afternoon," the Disney vice chairman recalls, "and it's a warm day with a good breeze.
