Disney’s Magic Cruise gets an updated look!

A Magical Make Over:  With a sprinkle of Pixie dust, Disney’s Magic Cruise gets an updated look…

The Disney Magic, the first ship in Disney Cruise Line’s fleet, originally launched 15 years ago. Everyone needs a make over after 15 years, and the ship was recently nipped and tucked (or “re-imagined” in Disney language.)

During six weeks in dry dock, the Magic received a stem-to-stern update. The Magic now features fresh new spaces and attractions. My family and I were recently able to spend 4 days aboard the ship. We have now sailed on all of the Disney Cruise Line ships – twice on the Wonder and on the media sailings for both the Disney Dream and the Disney Fantasy. After five cruises, my family and I have amassed an impressive collection of DCL lanyards! Here is our travel diary.

Day 1

After an easy drive from South Florida to Port Canaveral, we drop our luggage off curbside and park in the covered parking garage. It’s a cold and blustery day in Central Florida. (To all of the northerners, be fair! Fifty-five is downright freezing when you are used to 80-degree weather!)

  1. I loved this story.I could not stop reading it. When my children were little we promised when my youngest turned 5 we would go on the Disney Cruise or Disneyland. We were in the military in Montana. When my baby boy turned 5 my husbands father passed away in Virginia. That took all our Disney money and then some. The children missed there Gradpa but when are we going on our cruise was said at least once a day. I had three girls and finally my son. When my son was 8 his daddy got stationed in Germany, this is where I became a single mom. I started to college at thirty because I wanted my girls to know that you can succeed without a man. I started with a teaching degree because my husband had always helped with homework and I was loss. I got a work study job at the Library and could use the teachers manuals to help me teach my children.I also got a work study job at the gym. We were in Montana and the only inside warm pool was at the gym.There was bowling basketball and swimming while I worked they played .I would set my classes so I was always home with dinner when they got home. I also worked as a dishwasher at lunch time at the College, which gave us food to eat everyday. They would give me all the leftovers. I started taking psychological classes to try and help my teens. Haha !! After 3 1/2 years I ended up with As in Early Childhood As in Psychology,BA in Teaches Elementary school and a BS in Human Services. This never stopped my children about Disney. We moved to Virginia and all the children would say we are closer now, when can we go.I was struggling just paying bills and feeding them.
    My children are grown now and I have been Blessed with 17 GRANDCHILDREN. I loss my precious son while we were driving home he stopped breathing. I gave him CPR on the side of the road until the paramedics arrived. They said a blood clot went to his brain. He left behind three sons a adopted daughter and his wife was 7 months pregnant with his first biological daughter. Do you know to this day my Daughter are still asking about the promise I make over 25 years ago. My one daughter is in the Air Force and has been to Iraq three times.Her husband went two times and did not come back the same person. He got out and is getting disability. My daughter was sent the second time after giving birth to her third son, She was breast feeding son when she left so they had to wrap her up with ace bandages to help dry her up in a War zone. All my children have told there children about the one promise I never kept. I guess we are all children in our Hearts. I have a condition that is eating up all my BONES and cartilage. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN YOUNGCAT HEART AND WE ARE AN EXTREMELY CLOSE FAMILY. BUT MY ONLY WISH BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE IS TOO TAKE MY CHILDREN AND Grandchildren on this Magnificent Cruise you described. I will feel complete as a Mother. I Love my Children and Grandchildren with my entire Heart but I don’t want to be the mommy that broke her promise. Their father retired after thirty years and was involved in so many wars that weren’t declared.
    Please past this on because this is My last wish for my family. Maybe Disney would like to meet my Great family or someone who understands how a Mother feels when she breaks such a huge promise. I am in a wheelchair now but I can keep up with my babies. Please Share this story maybe a millionaire might read it !!!!!
