Disney Magic Photo Galleries

DIS Unplugged Podcast - The Newly Re-Imagined Disney Magic - 10/29/13

Take a look at our Disney Magic photo galleries including photos from all of the newly enhanced areas on board, including the dining locations, recreation areas, and the upper decks!



Disney Magic Overview / Planning Tools

The grand atrium lobby is the first thing guests see when they enter the Disney Magic, and after this remodel, it is a completely different view. The lobby has been redesigned with an art deco motif and feature colors of the sea, like coral, blue and aquamarine. The carpet features a seashell design. If guests look up, they will notice that the chandelier is meant to act as the sun in this space and golden yellow rays stretch across the ceiling.   The redesign has removed one of the atrium's staircases to better enhance the flow of the space; the "Helmsman Mickey" statue has been moved to a new location in the lobby and has received a makeover of its own.

The Disney Magic offers a wide variety of itineraries, mainly sailing to the Caribbean, but the Magic will also head off to ports in the Bahamas, Canada, New York and Europe!

Disney Magic Ship Details:


These staterooms are designed especially for the needs of families. Staterooms on board the Disney Magic are well-appointed, comfortable, and awash in nautical elegance. Most boast split bathroomsa feature that's perfect for families & and a cruise line industry first!

Popular features from the other ships are also available, like private verandahs, portholes with built-in seating and elegant decor.




A new Brazilian restaurant is available for guests, bringing the spirit of Rio de Janeiro to the ship. Carioca's is designed like an outdoor marketplace and is based on Jose, the parrot from The Three Cabelleros. In the daytime this space has a festival theme and then transforms at night to the city of Rio, with soft lights and lit lanterns. Carioca's replaces Parrot Cay.

Animator's Palate has been remodeled with high-def flat screens and animation decorating the walls. The popular Animation Magic show from the Disney Fantasy is now offered here, giving each guest the chance to become an artist.



Cabanas has replaced Topsider Buffet and is themed around Finding Nemo. Cabanas is a casual atmosphere during the day and a table-service restaurant in the evening. The restaurant space has expanded, giving it 9,460 square feet of space and 455 seats.

Palo, the adults-only dining location, has gotten a makeover reminiscent of a cafe in Venice. Glass artwork, stone floors and red and white striped poles give the restaurant the illusion of being situated on the canals of the Italian city.

Restaurants on the Magic include:


Entertainment aboard the Disney Magic is offered in fantastic settings, and all options are designed to fill your days at sea with memorable experiences.  Guests can watch stage shows in the beautiful Walt Disney Theatre, first-run movies in the Buena Vista Theatre and take part in character meet and greets across the ship.

Adults Only:

Nightclubs & Lounges on the Disney Magic bring the night to life with music, dancing and socializing. From swanky to sporty, low key to high energy, you'll find a hangout you'll love amid the ship's "adults-only at night" entertainment district, After Hours.

The clubs in this location are O'Gill's Pub, Fathoms (an undersea-themed club that changes atmosphere as the night goes on) and Keys, a laid-back piano bar.

The Vista Spa has changed to Senses Spa & Salon and sports a new contemporary design, as well as a 725 square feet expansion. Smile Spa, a new addition, offers teeth whitening services and barbershop services for men, and the Chill Spa caters specifically to teens ages 13 to 17.


Family Areas:

D Lounge has replaced Studio Sea as the hangout for games, dance parties and family-friendly activities.


Kids Clubs:



The Oceaneer Club, one of the areas for children age 3-12, is home to several new experiences, some based on the Oceaneer Club on the Dream and Fantasy and some are brand-new on the Magic. Disney's Pixie Hollow and Andy's Room from Toy Story, just like on the Dream and Fantasy ships, have come to the Magic.



New to any Disney Cruise ship is the Marvel's Avengers Academy. Children will be in charge of a command post directing the Avengers' secret missions and training.



Another new addition is the Mickey Mouse Club, decorated in red, yellow and black. Kids will make crafts and play games, as well as test out Goofy's Gears, an oversized activity center with magnetic, spinning gears to play with.

The Oceaneer Lab, which is also for kids age 3-12, has a new pirate-themed area. Kids use Navigator Simulators to steer a pirate ship through the Caribbean.

The nursery has been transformed into the It's a Small World nursery, based on the theme park attraction, just like the nurseries on the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy.




Pools and Water Features:

Several new interactive features have been added to the pool deck. Water play features similar to the Fantasy's AquaLab have been added to the 1,800-square-foot space. Kids can jump around the pop jets, geysers and bubblers. The infants/toddlers splash area has been re-themed around Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Donald's nephews. The Twist N' Spout water slide sends guests twisting back and forth across the ship in 250 feet of twists and turns. This slide is for guests between 38 and 64 inches tall.



Brand-new to any Disney ship is the AquaDunk, a three-story body slide! Riders step inside a clear tube and the floor under them opens like a trap door, sending them on a near-vertical drop that will eventually take them 20 feet over the side of the ship. This slide is for guests 48 inches or taller.
