Our Review of the Disney Magic Cruise Ship – 10 Reasons We Love It!

Lumieres Restaurant

3. Lumiere’s Dining on Disney Cruise ships is second to none, and the Disney Magic is no exception. All the dining rooms are fantastic, but we particularly love the Beauty and the Beast styling of Lumiere’s, as well as the fabulous French and American cuisine. We all know how fun it is to be whisked into one of your favorite ...

Aquadunk

9. AquaDunk However, there’s nothing relaxed about the AquaDunk, a water thrill ride exclusive to the Disney Magic ship. After you step into the slide canister, you wait with nervous anticipation knowing the floor will fall out from beneath your feet at any moment. With a whoosh, you’re swept down a few decks and out over the sea until you ...

Disney Magic Cruise

10. Smaller Size Having cruised both the Magic and the Dream (sister ship of the Fantasy), there is a marked difference in the atmosphere of the smaller Magic versus the two larger sisters. While both types of ships have their advantages, our family was charmed by the smaller size of the Magic, noting that activities seemed less crowded and the ...

Enjoy a bucket of popcorn in the Magic Kingdom

9. Pop for Popcorn Buckets One of the most economical moves you can make in my opinion is a refillable popcorn bucket. Not only is it a great snack and a fun souvenir, refills are available for the length of your stay for super cheap!

8. Split or Bring Meals Save money at lunch time by having kids split meals and then plan on stopping for a snack later. The portion sizes, even on kids meals, are usually pretty generous. We also like to pack a light picnic lunch then buy a fun afternoon snack—it saves time and money!

7. Use Rider Switch For the “big” rides (those with a height restriction), one adult can stay out with the little one(s) while the other rides. Then the waiting adult can get a special FastPass ticket to avoid a second wait. See the cast member BEFORE the first adult rides.
