Disney Magic to Get Marvel Experience, New Adults Only District, AquaDuck and More

Taken from stitchkingdom web site:

Ahead of this week’s ‘Monstrous Summer’ press event being held at the Walt Disney World Resort, we have learned of some exciting upcoming additions to Disney Cruise Line’s Disney Magic cruise liner. The new features include a mix of adapting enhancement from fleet ships Disney Dream and Fantasy’s own pluses as well as brand new experiences, amongst which may be the very first (permanent) foray into the Marvel universe by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, the business unit that manages Disney Cruise Line. From children to adults, the Disney Magic promises to offer brand new experiences not available anywhere else on the high seas.

The additions begin with the Oceaneer’s Club which currently hosts four immersive experiences from Disney’s Pixie Hollow, Andy’s room from Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story, a submarine experience inspired by Finding Nemo and the scream floor of Monsters Inc aboard the Dream and Fantasy. It appears the latter two will be going away in favor of the Marvel’s Avengers Academy (promised to be based on an upcoming animated Disney XD series of the same name) and a Mickey Mouse Club, inspired by the series of brand new animated shorts now being produced.

The Magic will also receive the AquaDuck waterslide along with some enhancements in way of the AquaLab as found on the Disney Fantasy. In addition, a new water play area for infants and toddlers will be re-themed to the Nephews’ Splash Zone. A brand new water slide called the Twist N’ Spout will also be introduced to the ship, which ‘splashes off in one direction, then loop-de-loops the opposite way.’

Donald Duck’s presence will also be felt elsewhere onboard as the Disney Magic introduces a new restaurant based on his Saludos Amigos co-star, Jose. The restaurant will be called Carioca’s and will be Brazilian-influenced, themed to an outdoor marketplace during festival.

The adults-only district will be re-themed to After Hours and, in addition to featuring O’Gills from the Disney Fantasy, will also feature an undersea themed club called Fathoms and a piano bar named Keys.

CORRECTION: The article was incorrectly initially written from the perspective of the Disney Dream. Changes have been made to reflect that these additions will be completely new to the Disney Magic.

I really doubt the Magic will get the Aquaduck. There's really no space for the support beams and it seems they'd have an issue with the structural rating.

I truly hope that the Magic DOES NOT get an Aquaduck. First of all, it's too small a ship and I think it would be nice if Disney kept the two classic ships just that -- classic without all the outside bells and whistles to take away from the aesthetics. Some of us like them that way

Carnival is completly redoing the Destiny into the Sunshine. You can watch all of the weekly updates since they started. In the end it is going to run about 180 million. 8 weeks. It is being done by the people who built the D Magic. They work 24/7 they parked a cruise ship next to it to feed and house workers. Just go Carnival web site.

And about half of this is not unique. That is what is making me worry about the future. Disney has become have "one good idea and replicate it everywhere".

Go to Stitch Kingdoms website directly. It's not an Aquaduck. It's a slide that does go over the water, but its just a slide.

Artist rendering pic is there.

I don't like the slide… I saw the pic and I don't like it, cool as it is, I think It ruins the lines. Which is why I don't like the looks of some of the ships that have 50 gagillion of them on top. IMO, they could do something similar without going over the side of the ship which won't ruin the lines so much.

I will be waiting until DCL send a press release do make any final judgement, however, based on this articles associated photos, I don't like the slide. Everything else sounds great, just not the slide.

Once again, I don't like the slide…

Here is the image of the slide.

I like the idea of the Carioca's Market. It should replace Topsider and be more of the Dream and Fantasy style. That is what I am reading into it any IMHO.
