We have been on the Magic, 3 times, and the two ships have similar 'bones' but the decoration and some of the restaurants are different. One is Art Nouveau and one is Art Deco. There is Lumiere's instead of Triton's. Mickey is at the helm of the Magic in the Lobby and Ariel is on the Wonder. The hull decoration fore and aft are different. But the stateroom layout and public space layouts are all the same. Hope that answers your question!

Hi everyone! We just booked this cruise through SWV, payment pending. We are from Singapore and this will be our first cruise ever! Glad to hv found this thread. Can't wait to join in the excitement once payment is settled. In the meantime, I hv a few qns:

1. I learnt about SWV via mouse savers.com. So far, they hv been quite prompt (given the time difference) but am just wondering if anyone has other travel agent/agency recommendations so perhaps I could make some comparisons.
2. Our flights to Houston hv been booked and we're now making arrangements for accommodation and car rental, mainly through airbnb & relayrides. We'd be happy to hear from anyone who has a room/car for rent or could hook us up with someone, or any suggestions/advice for that matter.

Counting down!

Cheers,
Ben (31), Denise (30), Rebekah (5)

I cannot recommend my travel agent on the DISBoard because it is blocked by the owners of the DISBoard. If you post on our Cruise Facebook page everyone there can let you know their travel agent and why they love them. There are also people from Texas on the Facebook page and can help with logging recommendations. https://www.facebook.com/groups/616804305001868/

I have cruised on the Wonder and Magic and cannot tell one from the other. I know there are differences but from man that does not pay attention to decorations I though they were identical. It was nice that I knew where to go because everything is in the same place.

They were built by the same shipyard within a few years of each other, just like Dream and Fantasy, so they are very similar. I still like the magic class better than the dream class!!

The dining rotation is split into three groups. You would need to have your TA or you need to contact Disney and see if you can find out what dining rotation you will be on.

So, if I don't have a TA do I just call Disney?

New to the Group

Hi guys! We just booked this vacation. We fell in love with the Magic back in May, and wanted to be able to go out of Galveston before the opportunity was gone. So here we go again on the Wonder in December!

I sent a request to the Facebook page as well.

There are 6 of us, so we have adjoining cabins! Now to think about how to tell the kiddos

Couldn't let DCL get away without one more time!

We just cancelled our WDW December trip and booked for this sailing. So excited. I don't know what we were thinking, going to WDW when DCL is in Texas?!?! Went at Halloween and Christmas last year. Just signed up for Facebook page.
