We were lucky enough to have sailed on the newly reimagined Disney Magic this past Halloween. They have completely transformed some of the spaces on the Disney Magic and the end results are fantastic. I have reviewed some of the highlights of the reimagination.
My favourite addition to the newly reimagined Disney Magic has to be the AquaDunk. It is a water slide on the side of the funnel that goes over the side of the ship. You stand in a capsule and Huie, Duey and Louie count you down as the floor of the capsule opens up beneath you and you go speeding around a loop. It is a lot of fun. We saw quite a few passengers who didn’t want to go on but then were glad that they did and ended up riding it again and again. The hardest part is getting in the capsule and then the rest is a lot of fun. The lifeguards are very understanding and will help you if you need a little encouragement! You have to be at least 48” tall to ride the AquaDunk on the newly reimagined Disney Magic.
They have also reimagined the restaurant, Animator’s Palate, on the Disney Magic. There are sketches of loads of Disney characters decorating the restaurant and on one night they do a dinner show where you can watch Disney characters being drawn and then they will animate them. I don’t want to give too much away but you’ll want to make sure you are at dinner on the night they do the show! In addition to the updated Animator’s Palate you will no longer find Parrot Cay but instead you will dine at the new restaurant Carioca’s on the reimagined Disney Magic. Carioca’s boasts a Brazilian theme with South American cuisine. We found the restaurant a little noisy but fun and colourful.
On the newly reimagined Disney Magic, you will find kids club areas. The Oceaneer Club (for 3-12 year olds) has Marvel Avengers Academy along with Andy’s Room, Pixie Hollow and the Mickey Mouse Club. They can really let loose and they also get creative in the new Oceaneer’s lab. The other kids areas have also received a facelift, including It’s A Small World Nursery.
Now of course I also want to talk about After Hours – the adult only area on the newly reimagined Disney Magic. They have the Keys, a piano bar, O’Gills, an irish pub, and Fathoms, the nightclub. It is a sophisticated place to escape the children for a while. We spent a lot of time in Fathoms checking on the entertainment and game shows.
They have done a great job on the newly reimagined Disney Magic. We found the additions to be fantastic and magical although there were some areas of the Disney Magic that could do with some TLC. To see if the Disney Magic would be a good fit for your family, contact us today!
