1st time on the Magic and so excited about the renovations!!

Cannot wait until October 20, especially now that we know what changes are being made. I booked this cruise while on the Dream back in January, which was our very first Disney cruise - DH and 3yo DD had the best time. I had mixed feelings...excited to be doing a double dip at Castaway Cay but a little sad that DD wouldn't get a chance to go on the Aqua Duck (she was too small while on the Dream). However, after seeing pics of the kids areas I knew she would love Captain Hook's ship but then to hear that might be gone, again, I was a little sad. But now, wooohoooo, her favorite part of Andy's room (Slinky Dog) is now going to be a spiral slide! So now I am so much more excited about our cruise on the Magic! We've never been to Disney World so we decided a Disney cruise would be for us and boy were we right...we are now hooked!! All I can think about is our next cruise, and the next...

I hope to meet some of you while on the "new" Magic!! Tarina

I am beyond excited! My kids are going to go nuts when they see the new slides. I feel like I'm being greedy here - but has anyone heard about them adding something like the mid-ship detective game?

How in the world am I going to stand waiting so long!?!?

I wondered about Mid-ship as well... They did say they didn't announce everything so there is still hope

I am really excited about the AquaDunk! It looks GREAT! I hope they don't replace the Chihuly in the lobby, it is one of my favorites parts of the ship! No mention of the Vibe or Edge, wonder what they will be doing with those spaces? Not sure if the AquaDunk takes over one of those spaces or not. So Excited for October!!!!

The Chihuly is being replaced. I'm a huge fan of it, but I imagine the care of that thing is a bear. It has been said it might be going into the terminal at PC. We shall see! Hopefully that happens so we can still see it when we arrive!

Ok, going through previous FE gifts and pictures of gifts...gosh, there really is never anything I don't like (honestly...even if it is something I cannot use personally, my niece loves the little gifts I bring back!).

My favorites have probably been the magnets (Disney related, hometown related, whatever!) since I collect magnets. Candy/food related to hometowns...also very cool! Mini paper bag scrapbooks. Recipes (I'm a cook and baker, so those always go over well with me...some have been hometown based, others Disney recipes). And considering I have a sweet tooth, candy always hits the spot!

Von and I got some video of the atrium during the Sandy hurricane. We werent supposed to be there, but i insisted... I am telling you, we were all INTENSELY staring at that chandelier just frozen in time just waiting for it to come crashing down... And it's definitely more sturdy than the Chihuly. It was shaking and trembling and creaking so much! I think the drama with the storm have them rethinking a few things in the rebuild of the Magic!

I have video of the Magic's Chihuly on a regular non-storm sailing...and it's swaying pretty good!

I just read that the rooms are getting a touch up too!


Hey is anyone starting a Facebook group? I check that much more than the boards. Plus it would be nice to put faces with the names!

I can start one if no one knows how....

I'm so glad my brother-in-law suggested that we all go on this cruise. I thought that dry dock would mean new bedding, carpets, etc. I had no idea it would be a massive redesign! Looking forward to Carioca's, O'Gills and swapping Topsiders into Cabanas.

Sailing with my dad, sister, brother-in-law and nephew (8). We've sailed on the Magic twice already and love it--Esther and Avatar are our favorite servers! Fantasy is next for us (our first time) in June, then this cruise.

A double dip on the first sailing after a major dry dock--look out, Castaway Cay, here we come!

Timing of cruise couldn't be better. Some of us will stay for the UCONN/UCF football game on October 25, too. Mickey + Huskies Football = perfect vacation!
