By Brazilian does this mean the new restaurant will be more like 'Ohana with skewers of meat at the table or just themed for Brazil???

Personally love all the changes - Magic is an amazing ship but it did need some upgrades - Yeah to the Irish pub!

Too bad they couldn't add Aquaduck - loved it on the Dream - but the new nephews play area will be cute!

OMG. Ohana. I'm in love.

I don't like O'Gills. I prefer Diversions. Honestly, does it matter? Lets face it, I'm not going to stop cruising anyways LOL!!!!!

If I could have had only one wish, it would definitely have been for the splash zone, I am beyond happy for this addition. The area they had for little ones was kind of an afterthought and a waste of space. I can't wait to see pictures of what they come up with for this!!

I'm happy if they can add the aqualab! My son spent a lot of time there! A lot of people just walk through to cool off! Can't wait for the official announcement.

I'm not a huge fan od O'Gill's either. But to each his own.

I think an Ohana style restaurant would be really hard to pull off, but you never know. Disney does like to make the 'impossible' happen.

Wondering why you don't like the pub??? I'm NOT a sports bar fan and never really went into it on my 14 nights on the Magic in the past...here at home my DH and I LOVE going to the pub!

I was excited to hear about it on the Fantasy and now the Magic as well

Small and dark. Its set up awkwardly. Diversions is open, bigger, brighter and inviting. Very fun to watch NFL games!

LOL Pubs are supposed to be dark I guess - I'm used to it in all the ones I hang out in! Plus I'm not an NFL fan so Diversions never held any real way for me

Plus I find most of the Dream/Fantasy badly laid out - hopefully better on the Magic!

First timers!

Hi!! This is my first time on Disboards, AND on a Disney cruise. There will be 4 of us cruising. Myself (Amanda 30), Mom (Cheryl 55), Husband (Andrew 32), and Son (Rowen 3). Super Excited and hope to meet others going on this cruise before we get on the ship!

Thanks! I hope I do too! I am really looking forward to bringing my little man on his first cruise. It will also be the first time he has seen Mickey NOT on tv. Should be interesting to see how he reacts!

In my opinion, the character interaction on the ships is soooooo much better than in the parks. It's a more relaxed atmosphere...and you may even have random run-ins with characters too! We have never run into Mickey outside of a scheduled greeting, but I have bumped into Snow White (in Shutters), Alice a couple of times (stairway and a hallway near the Buena Vista Theatre), Donald (elevator), Stitch (near the future cruise sales desk), Minnie a couple of times near the atrium...just to name a few.

I have learned never to walk around without my camera while on the ship!

I agree with Cindy 115%. Characters come out of the woodwork on the ship. It seems as though there are just as many meet and greets aboard as there are in the parks, only in a much smaller space. Mickey and friends are even in the terminal for meet and greets before the sailing (at least when sailing out of Port Canaveral).

On the Navigator (the ship's event schedule that you will receive nightly for the next day) there is a section that tells you when and where someone will be. It looks like a TV guide grid.
