Disney Cruise Line is offering Pocket Guides to plan your next Disney Cruise. The first ship they cover is the Disney Magic.
The Disney Magic is home to 11 decks of onboard fun that the whole family will enjoy! As you board the ship, crew members will greet your party by name, and none other than Captain Mickey himself will welcome you into the atrium.
Staterooms aboard the Disney Magic are designed with families in mind, prioritizing comfort and relaxation. Split bathroom layouts in most staterooms make it easy for larger crews to get ready to “seas” the day. The bedframes are just high enough to slide your suitcase under, providing maximum storage space. See the line where the sky meets the sea with stateroom views ranging from two small porthole windows, one large porthole window, or a private verandah.
Rotational dining ensures that all guests can enjoy all three themed dining experiences while on board. Your party and service team will rotate to a different table service restaurant each night. As part of your rotational dining experience, you’ll be our guest at Lumiere’s, spend an evening at Animator’s Palate sketching your favourite Disney characters and enjoy a delicious meal with live entertainment from some familiar friends at Rapunzel’s Royal Table!
Tip: The Disney Magic offers a collection of experiences that cater exclusively to adults on board. The centrepiece of a romantic evening is Palo, an elegant adult-exclusive dining experience that serves northern Italian fare with a modern twist. Reservations are required and can be booked online or while boarding the ship. For late-night drinks, dancing and entertainment, adults can enjoy a variety of nightclubs and lounges: Fathoms, Keys, Promenade Lounge and O’Gills Pub.
While adults take advantage of the After Hours excitement, there are several themed spaces for the rest of your crew to enjoy age-appropriate, supervised fun. The “it’s a small world” nursery is an interactive childcare center for kids ages six months to 3 years old, inspired by the nostalgic Disneyland attraction. Kids ages 3 to 12 can immerse themselves in imagination in one of several themed spaces at Disney’s Oceaneers Club and Disney’s Oceaneer Lab, including Andy’s Room. Shrink down to the size of a toy and slide down the Slinky Dog slide! Tweens ages 11 to 14 can kick back at Edge, a lounge with flat-screen TVs, video game consoles and a dance floor. There’s also Vibe, a super cool teens-only space for guests ages 14 to 17 to socialize at the ship’s highest point.
Tip: For families with young adults, the 1820 Society is a group for cruisers that are too old for the Youth Clubs but not quite old enough for the over-21 activities. Activities hosted by the cruise staff often include game challenges, smoothie time, ice cream socials, lunches and more.
There is no shortage of activities onboard the Disney Magic! The D Lounge is the perfect spot to come together and enjoy family-friendly entertainment. Put your Disney knowledge to the test with a round of trivia, or embrace your inner superstar during a karaoke session.
Tip: Be sure to download the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app to check the activities schedule. You’ll also use the app to stay connected with your party while onboard.
Don’t miss the Broadway-quality entertainment offerings happening at the Walt Disney Theatre. Follow Rapunzel’s journey to find her new dream in Tangled: The Musical or pick up where the classic Cinderella film ends in Twice Charmed: An Original Twist on the Cinderella Story. Catch a showing of Disney Dreams – An Enchanted Classic for a new and exciting show featuring music and characters from beloved favourite films.
Families can make a splash together at Goofy’s Pool! Join in on poolside games and on-deck dance parties hosted by the Disney Magic crew members. You may even catch a movie on the Funnel Vision as you swim. Families can experiment at the AquaLab interactive splash zone and slide down the double-looping waterslide for even more aquatic fun. The littlest in your crew can cool off in the Nephews’ Splash Zone, created just for infants and toddlers 3 and under. If you are up for the thrill, head to the highest point of the Disney Magic and slide down the AquaDunk waterslide.
Guests 18 and over can enjoy the Disney Magic’s best-kept secret: the Quiet Cove Pool. This adult-exclusive pool area is complete with two whirlpool spas for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Lay back on a lounge chair and sip a cocktail from Signals pool bar while enjoying the secluded serenity.
Tip: If you are a coffee connoisseur, you must visit Cove Café, right beside the Quiet Cove pool in the adult-exclusive area. Don’t forget to ask for a Café Fanatic frequent coffee reward card for those delicious specialty coffees.
