Why couldn't they leave the Classic ships alone? It's alright to have different things on different ships.

[QUOTE=DynamicDisneyDuo;48183971]Why couldn't they leave the Classic ships alone? It's alright to have different things on different ships.[/]

I think the point hisnt that they are trying t make all the ships the same. They are trying to add value to the magic and the wonder. Who would want to pay a premium to go on a Disney cruise to be on an old boat that hasn't been refurbished? It is inevitable that hotel rooms and cruise ships have a decorating lifespan. At a certain point the decor gets old and worn and needs to be replaced. When that time comes do you update with original or new and more modern designs?

Also, there are other areas of the ship that they may have realized need to be updated or has gotten feedback that guest satisfaction is low. These types of updates are vital to the long term draw to the Disney cruise line.

@disneybaby2004

I had posted that link about a page or two back. Looks like more info is starting to trickle out. If the marvel news is true, my son is going to be thrilled!

It will be interesting to see what changes are made. I personally prefer the classic ships, but I do see where some updates would be good for the ship. We should know more on Friday. Whatever may come, I can't wait to set sail in October!

The things that are announced so far look really impressive. They are implying that this is just the day-1 stuff and more info would be trickling out between now and when it goes into the dry dock.

But honestly, what I find more impressive then anything else is the massive amount of things they plan to do to the ship.... all within a 6 week timeframe. I would imagine that since no guests will be on the ship coming back to Miami, there will be some things that is done during that time too, but still. That is a lot to rip out of the ship and put back together... with little to no time for mistakes.

So yeah, excitement.

Hi all! My family will be joining you all on this cruise.
I've seen some talk about the idea of starting a Facebook group, but haven't been able to find one or seen one posted in this thread.
So I started one ....
Disney Magic 10/27/2013

If there is already one started, please accept my apologies and just let me know what the FB page is called.

Does anyone have suggestions for a good place to stay the night before? Preferably where you can park and take a shuttle without paying 2 arms, a leg and an ear.

Yippee!

Hello Everyone.

Looks like my family will be joining you all. I can't believe it! I have been asking my DH for another DCL cruise for years, and when I brought it up the other day, he said Yes! without hesitation. Aaaaaaaggghh!

Our last cruise was 4 years ago, when my twin boys were 5. It was a 7-night on the Magic out of PC. Cozumel was one of the stops and we did the Chankanaab national park and their dolphin excursion. I did not book through Disney and saved considerable money. It was a great excursion and easy to do.

Since the 2009 trip, we adopted a little girl from China in 2010. She was 5 at the time and this trip will not only be her first cruise, but it sails on her 9th birthday! She is wonderful, and I can't wait for her to have this experience.

So, our crew is Me: 48
DH: 49
DS: 9
DS: 9
DD: 9
(maybe Grandma: 70)

My daughter is 5 months younger then her twin brothers, so 7 months out of the year I have triplets!

I am so, so excited and I will definitely be doing the FE. I even know what I am getting.

Totally! They are fun, the kids love them, and I remember them being SO HANDY to find your cabin door when there feels like miles of similar doors all around you. I like to do the Mickey ears around the cabin number, and name ones on the door. I promised myself I wasnt going to do as many as last time (yeah right... ).

Hey everybody my wife and I just joined your group. We are 40ish semi-adults traveling without kids. We love Halloween and are very excited to see the ship decked out. This will be our 1st trip to Miami. Does anybody have a recommendation for a good hotel?

Hi all...We have not booked yet, but plan to in the next couple of weeks. We are super excited about this cruise, Halloween and coming out of dry dock...and leaving from Florida and not going to Nassau again!!!

This will be our 4th Disney Cruise, and 2nd time on the Magic. We always drive (from SW VA) I noticed some other people driving, I will answer any questions I can if you have any, but as we are not leaving from PC things will be different.

It is myself, my wife, and our 2 DDS (4 and 7)

Someone asked about princess dresses. BRING THEM ALL!!! Our girls have every cruise. The princesses on the ship love it when the girls are dressed like them. Also, in the kids club will have a "learn to be a princess" ball with Cinderella and they are encouraged to wear their dresses.

We are thinking about booking this cruise

Our first cruise with DCL was a Halloween cruise.
It was a 7 nighter.

It was AWESOME!!

Hi everyone! It's me again.
Haven't heard any response from anyone with regards to the Facebook page.
I made a facebook page for our cruise. It can be found by searching in Facebook the following:
Disney Magic 10/27/2013

I am going on the Fantasy May 18th sailing in a couple of weeks and we developed a large facebook page where everyone seems to gather for most conversations.
When this groups FE list gets completed I'd love to post it on the page, as it is a closed group only for these members (which allows all personal information to be kept between members only)

If you have problems finding the facebook page, you can private message me on here for help.

Hope to see you all there!
