Just took the Magic over Thanksgiving-sold out to the point that no upgrades were available to purchase. And yet my kids were practically the only ones in the pool after breakfasts, we never waited to be seated at dinner, and the only time we waited in line was to meet the princesses in the lobby and on disembarkation (where we repeatedly asked each other where on earth did all of these people come from?)
As a hyper planner (download previous navigators, peruse trip reports and can cite most of the passporter guide), I've found that all the hyper planning takes me through dinner the first evening (check food requests, pick up tea tickets, get kids club bands, unpack neatly, etc.) and then we relax for the rest of the cruise.

I'm not sure how they can sail at over 100% capacity unless they're stuffing people in the lifeboats? Unless this refers to having at least 2 people in each cabin? 'Capacity' vs 'Occupancy?'

I do know that if a cruise isn't filling up, Disney usually opens it up to CMs, et cetera to fill the ship.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
