Little Cruisers Get Even More Fun On The Re-imagined Disney Magic

Last week, I had the privilege of being one of the first to sail on Disney Cruise Line‘s re-imagined Disney Magic.  It is an incredible ship from top to bottom, but one of the most incredible areas was the new kids environments onboard the Disney Magic.

The first area we visited was the new Oceaneer Lab.

Adorned with giant, nautical ropes belayed around columns, ancient navigation maps on the walls and compasses emblazoned throughout the décor, Oceaneer Lab takes pint-sized pirates on a journey of discovery, exploration and adventure.

Digital Gaming Stations

This seafaring fun spot has video walls and digital stations for games, an animator’s studio for budding artists and a pirate workshop for experiments and art projects. Plus, Navigator Simulators let young buccaneers take the wheel and captain a ship through the mysterious waters of the Caribbean.

Craft Area

Just down the hall for the youngest cruisers — ages three months to three years — is the new It’s a Small World Nursery. Inspired by the style of Disney Legend Mary Blair, this whimsical world has cheerful artwork and murals resembling the namesake Disney Parks attraction.

The space is filled with hands-on features, including horns to honk, wheels to spin and buttons to press, along with colorful, kid-sized tables and chairs for toddlers to enjoy crafts, books and games with caring, trained counselors.

Craft/Entertainment Area

At the back of the nursery, a serene motif and a calm, quiet atmosphere is reserved for naptime. Parents wishing to check on their children without disturbing them can glimpse into the nursery’s main play area through a one-way window.

Here Is How You Can Save Money On Your Next Disney Cruise

If you are like me, I love to find a great deal.  I clip coupons, seek out the latest weekly deal at the grocery store, buy gift cards on double bonus point month and plan well for my vacations.

Here Is How You Can Save Money On Your Next Disney Cruise

One of our family’s favorite vacations is setting sail on a Disney Cruise Ship. Whether it be a short getaway tacked on to our Walt Disney World stay, seeing the wonderful natural beauty of Alaska or discovering history in Europe we are never disappointed with a Disney Cruise vacation.  The service is exceptional, the staterooms are comfortable and the family activities and adult only venues make it perfect for the whole family.

As with any family vacation, budget is one of the main contributing factors during the planning phase.  With a family of 5 that usually means, two state rooms, or the Deluxe Family Stateroom on the ship.  We learned early on that planning in advance offers us the best price.  As so as new Itineraries become available, that is when we set the date, but the key to making the most out of our budget is planning for our next cruise while we are still on the cruise!

Here Is How You Can Save Money On Your Next Disney Cruise

How does that work?  When you sail on a Disney Cruise ship you have the opportunity to book your future cruise while still on the ship and get a great discount, ½ deposit and an onboard credit.  Another fantastic bonus is that when you book your future cruise with Kingdom Magic and your Travel Planner you get an additional shipboard credit as well.  All together this translates into a great savings!

Important things to remember:

  1.  You can ONLY take advantage of the savings while you are still on the ship.
  2. You visit the future booking desk and deposit a future cruise.  If you don’t know the date, just let them know and they will book a place holder cruise for you.  Then when you decide on the date and the Itinerary let your Kingdom Magic Travel Planner know.
  3. Make sure that you tell the Cruise Desk that you want to book your vacation with Kingdom Magic and use the same travel planner.
  4. When you return home, your travel planner will touch base will you so you can start dreaming about the next time you will set sail!

Sounds easy!  It is!  You have another perfect vacation planned for the future and you have saved money!

If you have any questions about a Future Cruise booking, contact us at 1-866-972-6244.

Smoking Policy Updated Onboard Disney Cruise Line Ships

Disney Cruise Line has updated their smoking policy aboard all 4 of their ships.  Based on Guest Feedback, guests will no longer be permitted to smoke on stateroom verandahs onboard Disney Cruise Line ships.

Smoking Policy Updated Onboard Disney Cruise Line Ships

Disney states,” it is recognized that some Guests smoke. To provide an onboard atmosphere that also satisfies smokers, portions of open-air decks on each ship are designated as smoking areas. Smoking is not allowed on stateroom verandahs. Guests who are found smoking in their staterooms or on their verandahs will be charged a $250 stateroom recovery fee. This fee covers a deep cleaning to include air filter replacement, carpet extraction, the cleaning and replacement of drapes, comforters, blankets, and pillows, along with verandah cleaning and maintenance.”

Smoking Policy Updated Onboard Disney Cruise Line Ships

Guests and Travel Agents with verandah stateroom bookings affected by this change will be contacted by email. Guests will also be reminded of this policy once onboard.

So far the responses has been overwhelmingly positive.
