The CMs I spoke to while patiently waiting for a place to sit were very excited that it would eventually be Cabanas with more indoor seating.
Side note: It wouldn't have been so bad if people learned that sitting in an overcrowded restaurant AFTER they were finished their meal, for as long as 30 minutes to boot, is not a good idea! CMs were gently trying to get multiple families to leave as they were done by trying to take everything from the table multiple times, but some were insistent that a piece of fruit on a plate meant they were not done since they apparently had important plans to make for the day...
I was just thinking when we were on the very full Fantasy in March, how nice it was in Cabanas that we never had trouble finding an open table. It is not fun to walk around hunting when you are holding plates for yourself and your kids, and trying to get them to follow you around while you hunt. I think the larger size also lets them open only half of Cabanas on the morning of disembarkation, so that they can turn over the ship a little faster too. In general, I think Cabanas is a huge improvement to Topsiders/BBB.

I agree. It's awkward and too similar to AquaDuck -- but maybe that's what they wanted. I'd have named it the AquaPlunge.

My boys will be thrilled with both sides....they're to old and too tall for the Mickey slide. Now their is something for them.


I think all the changes look great.....I too would love to see a concierge lounge of some sort on the Magic...probably no room.

I get it now. Your right. It is poor wording. Perhaps if they added an "s" to the end of quarter I would have understood. And describing the suites as oceanview quarters, weird, as if somehow they weren't prior, and after drydock will be, strange. Perhaps a bit was lost in translation.

I envisioned an enclosed section of the veranda with full length windows in the larger suites. A reading nook, an ov quarter.

No way dudette! We can have it all with Disney! I grew up on mermaids, xmen n star wars! I love that you can have fantasy in any shape or background. Princess Leia is still a princess. Marvel has some compelling storylines too. I used to draw them as a teenager. I'm as girly a girly girl as it gets! I love that Disney has embraced these entertainment mega stars and is providing a little bit of something for everyone. Such a win win for me!

They did not fill the ship in Galveston!!!! I sailed on Magic from Galveston not the port. Very easy to get on and off. Very close to cheap sirport that has Southwest as main tennent.

Maybe the Magic has worn off.

I am stock holder and long time Disney person. But I look at what is happening in the Cruise industry and Disney to me is trying to live a dream and for the most part in the world today that dose not work.

In your opinion!

Changing the magic!!!!

I heard from dcl that they are completely doing the magic. Changing the kids clubs (Avenger themed?) Adding water slides, redoing the atrium and a lot more!!! I really like the magic the way it is now and I really don't like these changes. Has anyone else heard the same rumor and what are your thoughts?

It is not a rumor. This dry dock has been on the books for some time now. Disney has also posted promotional videos already.

Better sail on the Wonder before it has similar things done to it!

I have merged a few threads on the same topic so if some posts seem like they don't follow the "flow" of the thread that is why!!!

I hope they get all these changes done before the Magic starts cruising again. I seem to remember a previous drydock that ended and they started sailing again while still working on parts of the ship. These areas were closed off to guests and people weren't very happy about it.
