  1. It looks like the Magic is going into dry dock from the end of September 2020 just before heading on the transatlantic. On my cruise on the ship in May I was talking to a member of the crew who advised the ship would be getting a new lounge (I imagine the same as what's just been announced for the Wonder) and a new new toddlers area on the same deck as the nursery. Strangely he said this would be in March but it's clearly for about 10-12 days in Sept. What other rumors have you heard or what would you like to see changed/improved while the ship is in dry dock?
  2. We are on the Magic in two weeks. Does anyone know what films are currently being shown. Is Aladdin on? Many thanks
  3. I just booked a last minute cruise on the Magic for April 29th. Anyone know what movies are playing on the ship now? Hoping for Dumbo and Mary Poppins.
  4. We are on the Disney Magic from 5/3 - 5/8 and was curious if they would do anything for May 4th --- note that this is not a Star Wars at Sea cruise. Has anyone experienced a non-Star Wars themed cruise, that sailed over 5/4? Also curious about anything special for Cinco de Mayo onboard, but my kids won't care nearly as much about 5/5, lol
  5. Anyone know what movies they’re showing on the Magic right now? Thanks!
  6. Hello! I am sailing on the Magic for the second time (last time was 2010) and I believe the ship has gone through 1 or 2 dry docks. Wondering what has changed over the last 9 years for anyone who has been on it then and now! Thanks! Jen
  7. I'm getting ready to reschedule our spring break trip for 2020, and we have two options that could work. There is the 4 night Disney Dream cruise out of Port Canaveral. We can pad it out with a couple days before and after at the parks. That was what we had originally planned before we had to scuttle our spring break 2019 plans. The 5 night Disney Magic cruise out of Miami caught my eye when it was announced. It too would fit our schedule, and Cozumel sounds much more interesting than Nassau, plus we'd get two sea days. The down side is an extra two hours to drive to the parks from Miami after the cruise, and only having three days at the parks afterwards. This is our first cruise, so I don't know whether the boat should make a difference or not. I suspect that it'll be easier to get Palo brunch reservations with 2 sea days on the Magic, though. We have 2 kids that will be 13 and 10 (almost 11). Thoughts?
  8. Hi Guys - I did this for my Alaska Cruise and everyone seemed to like it. If you would like to see the post with formatting and photos please visit my blog (much appreciated) https://plaidshirtyogapants.com/2018/06/26/disney-magic-embarkation/ If you enjoyed this post, please feel free to share the link above on Twitter, Facebook, and/or Pinterest! Happy Reading! ---- Disney Cruises are something my family recently discovered. We had never cruised before our 7-night cruise to Alaska, and while we were on board, we booked another cruise from May 26-June 2 to sail the Mediterranean and explore Pompeii, Rome, Florence, and Nice. After spending 3 nights in Barcelona and 7 nights on the Disney Magic, we fell in love with all of the cultures in Europe and cannot wait to go through our trip report. Disney Magic Seven-Night Trip Report Over the next few weeks, my blog will shift focus from being a generalize travel blog to everything Disney! Well, Disney Cruise related. I found that many of my readers enjoy these trip reports, but I want to make sure that I cover everything, plus any additional trips and New Orleans blog posts over the next few weeks. These trip reports will not come out as rapidly as my Alaskan reports but don’t worry - I will make sure to cover all of the Disney fun from our cruise. Feel free to bookmark or pin this page so you can return because I will link all of the blog posts below. Itinerary We flew on Delta Airlines to Barcelona to spend three days exploring everything has to offer. I’m so happy that Barcelona was the starting and ending port of this cruise because there was so much to see (just like all of the ports) that I had a hard time fitting it in in all three days. Day 1 Embarkation - Barcelona Spain Embarkation day on a cruise is always an experience. Since this was our second cruise, we had a general idea of what to expect. We took a taxi from our hotel, which was about a 25-minute cab ride. We had five luggage, (one was our carry on for our water and wine!) and a transport chair. Our first travel mistake, forgetting the rule about carrying on. For some reason, I thought I could bring any size carry on, so I had all of the water and wine in one of our bigger suitcases. Well, let’s just say that I caused a scene because I had to quickly grab one of our smaller bags and throw everything into it. Luckily, everything worked out, and I was able to get situated and breeze through security. I found that the Barcelona Port was less strict than the Vancouver Port when it came to my wine. I, of course, obeyed Disneys 2 bottles of wine per person rule, but in Barcelona after having my luggage go through the x-ray, They just asked me how many bottles of wine I had instead of opening the suitcase and individually checking each bottle. Getting on the Ship Our boarding time was 11 am, but due to having to repack everything at the hotel, a bit of traffic on the way to the port, and just running late, we boarded around 12 pm. It was actually perfect because we didn’t have to actually wait for our boarding number to be called. Once we were done with checking in, we bypassed any of the photos and were able to walk right onto the ship. When you first walk onto the ship, a cast member asks you for your family name and all of a sudden you hear “Welcome Aboard the Lindsly Family!” Immediately boarding, we decided to head over to Luminere’s and have a nice sit-down meal while we waited for our room to get ready so we could ditch the wine suitcase. Having a nice sit-down dinner at Lumiere (versus the sometimes wild nature of Cabanas) allowed us to regroup and figure out the rest of the day on the ship. Getting into Our Verandah room We stayed in room 7120 which is considered one of Disney Magic’s Hidden Verandah Room. This room looked exactly like our room from the Disney Wonder during our Alaskan cruise, except for the fact that the bedding was a different color and the painting in the room was different. This room sleeps three people - two in the bed, and one the couch. The room also has a split bath, which comes in handy for getting ready in the morning for early excursion days. The reason why this room is considered a Hidden Verandah is that there is a portion of the balcony that has a white wall. There is a discount for booking this room because the white part technically obstructs your ocean view. Even though the balcony has a slight obstruction, the plexiglass makes up for any visual obstructions you have from the white. I honestly enjoy having this room because it makes you feel like you are on a semi-private balcony. The Rest of the Day The rest of the day went by very quickly. Ally took over unpacking everything and putting it in the correct spot, while I monopolized the washers on deck seven (sorry guys!). We like to do laundry on the ship with Tide Pods because they are easy to transport and get our clothes clean quickly. I entered everyone in our cabin for the spa raffle during the open house. Unfortunately, we did not win, but I had a fun time walking around the spa since we missed all open houses on our last cruise. On my next Disney Cruise, I want to take full advantage of the spa since I haven’t done that yet, except for a few quick trips to the gym. Mandatory Muster Drill Probably one of the least fun parts of the trip is the Mandatory Safety Drill. There was some misunderstanding that the drill started at 4 instead of 430, but we were able to get to our safety area very quickly. Our safety area was Animator’s Palate. We were lucky enough to not have to stand in the Sun waiting for the drill. While waiting for the drill, both mom and Ally fell asleep, I suppose I wore them out during our 3 Day Exploration of Barcelona. I, of course, being the terrible daughter I am, whipped out the camera and filmed the outcome. Let’s just say that if there is an emergency, I need to make sure to wake up my family! Adventures Away Deck Party In true Disney Fashion, the only way to sail away is with a dance party! We quickly grabbed a good seat so we could be involved with all of the action, without being in the way, and I grabbed us some drinks. Meeting a cast member who was on vacation, I learned that I could buy the coveted Dole Whip at the bar and add any type of rum to that drink. Abandoning my family's drink orders, I ordered three different Dole Whips, one with dark rum, white rum, and spiced rum. Seeing that the cast member was so excited for this tasty treat, I just had to try it. Well, ladies and gentlemen, it was not my favorite beverage that we had on the ship. In fact, I would prefer if I had gotten the frozen pina colada. When I first tried sipping the dole whip, I got a mouth full of rum. I didn’t mean to take shots! It took a while to mix the rum with the Dole Whip, but once it was finally mixed, we decided that the White Rum and Dole Whip was the best cocktail. Needless to say, we did not go back for an alcoholic dole Whip while on the trip. Balcony Chilling and Dinner Let me just say that we enjoyed our balcony a lot during this trip. After the Dance Party, we escaped from the overstimulated kids to have a glass of wine before dinner. During this time, we met our neighbors and chatted with them. They were on their third cruise and had three cabins full of people including a Grandparents cabin, a young adult cabin, and our cabin with our neighbors. It was fun to chat with the people next to us and discuss all of our upcoming plans for the week. That night, we had dinner at the newly refurbished Rapunzel’s Royal Table, where we met our servers and got acquainted with our table. Lucky for us, we didn’t skip dinner the first night like we accidentally did on the Alaskan Cruise. Enjoying the Evening I wouldn’t ever suggest to anyone to skip a Disney Show while on the Disney Cruise line. When we were on the Disney Wonder, we did see Be Our Guest, and even though it was one of my favorite shows in Alaska, we opted to veg out enjoy our balcony. With a glass of Spain’s finest Rioja, a couple of chairs, and a blanket we spent the evening looking at the next day’s Daily Navigator and reminiscing about our time in Barcelona. Stay tuned this summer to read about all of my trip reports for our May 25, 2018, Mediterranean Cruise out of Barcelona. Day 2 Sea Day Day 3 Naples (Pompeii), Italy Day 4 Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy Day 5 Livorno (Florence, Pisa), Italy Day 6 Villefranche (Monte Carlo/Nice), France Day 7 Sea Day Day 8 Disembarkation - Barcelona, Spain
  9. Just shy of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge the ship stopped, then backed up. VHF has a Coast Guard small boat along the port side to “pick up the patient”.
