Huh. I didn't notice them listed when we were on the Magic in June, and looking at the Western Magic itineraries that were jost posted (heading there in Nov) I don't see them listed there, either, although the bar hours were. But the bartenders did tell us about the specials when we were in Diversions.

Maybe it changes per itinerary. I noticed them on the Canada Magic Navigators that were posted (Example) and they were on the navigators on my 9/7 Canada cruise.

Wow! You are correct! I was speaking from memory, and I guess I never noticed that it said it, but I just dug out a couple of my navigators and they did indeed mention the specials. But I did look at several of the new Western ones from the Magic out of Galveston and it didn't say it.

I wish I had realized that they were listing the drink specials while we were on the Canadian cruise...the times we took advantage were purely accidental!

If you visit the http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/pl...and-amenities/. Page, scroll Down until you see the Beer Mug Package on sale for $14.95

Carry this Disney Cruise Line-branded beer mug to any onboard bar and get a 22 oz. refill of beer for the price of a 16 oz. size! If you find the mug too heavy to carry while onboard, then take advantage of the beer mug token.

I asked a friend if the Beer Stein was worth it, he wrote the following: by my calculation, if you deduce the price down to the oz, you are looking at roughly $0.23/oz. it's actually 22 oz for the price of 16 so if the goal is to drink to same point where the mug is actually free, you would need to drink 10.63 mugs of the 22 oz to break even. If using the calendar, mid afternoon on Day 2 !!!!!! But you get to keep the mug !!!

For what it's worth, I just went thru some Fantasy navigators from 8/12 that someone had posted. The 2 for 1 specials weren't listed.

In 6 cruises, I've never seen 2-for-1 drink specials listed on the Navigator.

I looked at my 4 night navigators on the Magic. Every night before early and late dining there was 45 minutes of 2 for 1 deals in Diversions. How did I miss that?!

I'll be paying closer attention on our next cruise. I hope our DotD is good.

Some 2-for-1's are announced, some are just surprise Disney pixie dust. Treat your bartenders right on Day 1 and they will give you a heads up on some of the upcoming surprises. Not that I'm a big drinker or anything!

They had them on the 9/1 Fantasy on the ship and on CC. I never took advantage because we had a Skyline Passport and we aren't big drinkers.

Maybe they are only saved on the Navigator template for the Magic. Who knows? I knew for a fact I'd seen them on the Canada Magic Navigators that were posted because I typed up the details from the scans so a Braille example could be generated.

Not a beer stein. 20 oz glass beer MUG. Totally worth it if you plan on drinking beer on tap, and especially on a longer cruise. We bring ours back on each cruise.
