Disney Cruise Line News: Magic Dry Dock

Yesterday morning when I attended the Monstrous Summer press event, The President of Disney Cruise line spoke about some great new things coming to the Disney Magic this fall.


She will be dry docked and will undergo a major overhaul to get her more up to date with the Dream and the Fantasy. We were shown beautiful renderings of some of the new things that are coming. I took photos of all the slides so you can get a peek at what is to come on the Disney Magic!

The lobby will get a facelift with some enhancements to the atrium.


Next, is the new restaurant that will be taking the place of Parrot Cay, Cariocas


Animator’s Palate is  fan favorite, so it will be staying as is except for some updated technology, including the fun animation part that the Disney Fantasy currently has on board. Everyone ready to draw?!?


The onboard buffet will be changing over to Cabanas like on the Dream and Fantasy.


The kids areas will all be reimagined, my favorite is this rendering of Andy’s room. The slinky slide looks awesome!


A lot of boys are excited about the new Avengers academy. Finally some superheroes onboard!


There will also be 3 adult spaces. Keys, Fathoms, and O’Gills Pub, all a part of “after hours”.


The deck areas are getting lots of fun too. First, the new twist and spout slide, and  also the newphews play area for the wee ones.



One new thing I didn’t know about it the new slide, the AquaDUNK will drop you THREE stories! Wow!


Here is a cute video about how this new slide will work.


As you can see, a lot of amazing and fun upgrades are coming very soon, so keep these in mind when looking to plan your next Disney vacation! I would love to help you if you have any questions!

  1. I think that it all looks amazing but that Aqua Dunk looks very cool!

  2. So this is the one Disney thing I have to tackle. Looks amazing! I’ve never been on a cruise and this is definitely on my bucketlist!

  3. That looks awesome! I love Disney. This would be an incredible cruise to take!

  4. A Disney cruise is very much on my list for the next year or two…maybe when they do a disney cruise half marathon? 🙂 (and yes, the Aqua dunk looks amazing!)

  7. Even though my kids are older, Andy’s kids room looks AWESOME! Also the AquaDunk. No way I would try that. 🙂

  8. I am SO excited for the re-vamp! I have been on 2 Disney Cruises, both on the Magic. The last one was just last year for our honeymoon. I showed my husband the 4 min. information video they have & he is already plotting out the next time we can go!
