I wouldn't mind the kids area being redone as well. My kids do like the slide, so I hope that stays. But I loved the hand washing machines at the front of the club on the Dream. I thought it was weird when we went on the Wonder for them to just squirt soap in her hand and have her walk all the way across the room to wash them. It would be nice to have something up front.

I agree, please keep the beds split! I had to sleep on the convertible sofa on the Dream and Fantasy and gave the real bed to my best friend. I love sailing on the Magic because I don't have to sleep on that sofa bed. I wish the beds on the newer ships splits, it would make sleeping arrangements better.

From what I have gathered, Animator's Palette on the new ships was designed fully by the imagineers and not an outside company. I could be wrong though, so in this case that leaked images of Parrot Cay, etc wouldn't also have the images of Animators.

How wonderful the Magic will undergo some updating! I have not cruised on the newer Disney ships, and not so sure I want to given they are so much larger which means so many more people. It would be nice to enjoy some of the benefits on the new ships on the Magic.

We were on the Magic last week and spoke to an officer about the dry dock. He said anything out there in terms of renovations is just strictly rumor at this point, that no changes had been approved yet. He knew that for sure because his officer position was such that he would be one of the officers traveling and staying with the ship during dry dock and the return home overseeing the changes.

The Magic will be empty when it sails back home to allow inside renovations to continue, per an officer on the Magic last week.

Topsiders and Parrot Cay are going to be refurbed. Animators is also expected to be upgraded to match the Dream/Fantasy. All new carpeting throughout the ship too. I asked if the horn will be upgraded but never did get an answer. Nobody said anything about stretching her but who knows. Also, next year the Wonder is scheduled for a long drydock to receive the same refurb and upgrades. Didn't hear where though.
Someone recently asked DH about this - IF it were true, they wouldn't be able to stretch the Wonder to match the Magic because the Wonder wasn't built in two parts like the Magic was.

I don't have the maritime knowledge, but I'd hedge a bet the Magic will NOT get stretched!

They have stretched ships not built in two parts before. So that wouldn't be the reason not to stretch it. The cost is outrageous and would take years to recoup so not really a renovation most cruise lines even consider. But the really big reason not to do it is the new PC is not open yet. The Magic and Wonder are Panamax ships. If they were bigger in any way, they would lose the flexibility to reposition between East and West coast through the canal until the new one opens.

dry dock is due to start in Sept.

Any work they do is usually regular maintenance... and they DO keep the ship up!!!

You'll see them paint and scrub, etc...

They even brought paint along and repainted the areas of the hull that were scratched when we went through the Panama Canal in '08...
