These changes sound great! I would love to have an Aquaduck on the Magic. We have a Wonder cruise to Alaska planned for next year. I would love to take a DCL cruise in 2015. Perhaps, it will be on the Magic.

The Aquaduck on the Dream/Fantasy is very nice but really not that long a ride. To put one on the classic ships seems like an injustice...just not long enough to provide a decent ride, IMO. I would rather see the slide or some other water feature than an Aquaduck on the classic ships.

I have to say that any changes they make to the kids' clubs on the Magic would only be an improvement. My DD6 sailed the Dream when she was 5 and I literally had to BEG her to leave the club and come do stuff with us. If it wasn't for the pool, we wouldn't have seen her at all. We just sailed the Magic in February and she went maybe twice the entire 8-night cruise. She even tried the Lab and didn't enjoy either. We're specifically sailing the Dream in November just for the kids clubs.

Plus, IMO any change made to Parrot Cay is a good one. Although, if they make it nicer I won't have any excuse to book Palo!

I could take or leave the water slide. That is unless the slide just launches people overboard. Great way to get rid of obnoxious d-bags.

The Magic will always have a special place in my heart. You never forget your first, but she needs to be bought into the 21st century. It's not a "cookie cutter" concept but adding what has already proven popular.

Huh??? Ever been to Fogo de Chao or other 'churrasquerias'? We are potentially looking at a great steakhouse!

I'd rather it be an Argentinean flare instead, but I'll accept the Brazilian theme...

Regarding the water slide... From the artist rendering, it's obviously a tall vertical slide, however, I wonder if it may have a second lower point of entry? This would attract the younger crowd, while the teens would go for the vertical slide.

I hate free falls - therefore I'm out otherwise.

The plans sound awesome, will be interesting to find out if they are true or not.

I would love a bigger toddler splash area. I am going on the Magic in 2014 and will have a 20 month old.

I love Cabanas lay out so much better , really want that.

I heard there is going to be announcement on April 26, 2013 if they do have an announcement do you think this is what they're going to announce? And does anyone know if there is actually an announcement confirmed by Disney?

OP, I highly doubt the writers of this article have anthing more than speculation on which to base their predictions.

My guess is that it has something to do with Monsters Inc. in some way. They just turned the giant Epcot ball into a huge Mike Wizowski (sp). I think there is a sequel/prequel coming up?

There is indeed an announcement today and tomorrow. It's all part of the Monstrous Summer press event and it is official. Today Disney talked about the new monorail wrap, among other things related to the Monsters University tie-in. They also said that the Princess area would open late this year and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train won't open until 2014.

Part two is tomorrow. The speculation is whether there will be any DCL related info or not, but there is indeed an official Disney announcement.

Hmm I like Monsters Inc. I LOOVVVEEE my Spaceship Earth. I'm on the fence as to whether I would like this... When I see that giant golf ball, I literally get chills!

It's a projection - so it's animated with sound. I think you would love it (i.e. it's not permanent.) they might be doing it in conjunction with Illuminations or something. I just saw a video of it posted online from yesterday.

true! oh, except for the actual concept art for both the Marvel Avenger's Academy and the AquaDuck. and a proven record, the least of which most recently providing every single detail of the Monstrous Summer campaign at Walt Disney World days before it was officially confirmed yesterday.

But you're probably right
