Embark on a beautiful and memorable vacation out at Sea as only Disney can provide.
While guests will enjoy several differences between the two ships, many popular locations can be found on both the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder.
Walt Disney Theater
Featuring the most sophisticated, technologically advanced theater afloat, the architectural design was inspired by the Art Deco period and can be seen in the entry doors, the golden scrolls, the proscenium arch detailing, the balcony and stage front fretwork, the carpet and fabric patterns, and especially in the starburst ceiling design. The Walt Disney Theater, featuring three original Broadway-style productions, consistently rates very high among Disney Cruise Line guests.
Celebrate the spirit of the Bahamas in an environment of vibrant colors and casual architectural styles of the Caribbean. From the multi-colored thatched roof to the delicious fresh fish, meats, fruits and vegetables, this restaurant sets the mood for a taste of the tropics. It's the perfect atmosphere to relax amid vibrant spices and flavors of the Caribbean.
Guests are treated to a dining experience like no other. A tribute to the history of animation at the Walt Disney Company, this one-of-a-kind, multi-sensory experience lets guests experience the magical transformation from a black-and-white artist's sketch to a full-color masterpiece. Just as an artist's spark of inspiration begins with a line drawing, the dining experience begins in a room that is entirely black and white. Gradually, color is introduced and the entire room comes to life with brilliant animation.
Staterooms 25 percent larger than the industry average were designed with comfort and style as the primary considerations. The innovative bathroom-and-a-half design is featured on both ships. Unparalleled attention to every detail is evident in the elegant nautical theme. Custom designed fabric, carpets, lighting and storage enhance the continuity of color throughout four different design schemes on both the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder.
Disney Magic and Disney Wonder Suites
The Walter E. Disney Royal Suite is reminiscent of the Art Deco glamour of the 1920's. Curved wood paneled walls provide a sleek backdrop for etched acrylic panel doors and softly upholstered furnishings. The palate creates an ambiance reflective of old Hollywood. The Roy O. Disney Royal Suite has burled wood walls and etched acrylic panel doors throughout. The Art Deco theme is continued throughout the one- and two-bedroom suites.
The Vista Spa and Salon
State-of-the-art fitness and spa services are rendered with style and functionality at the Vista Spa and Salon. The fitness area overlooks the bridge, while the aerobics area is enclosed for privacy. The treatment rooms and saunas use warm hues and wood. The thermal baths are outfitted in cool tiles. Etched murals, water features and plants complete the spa.
Capturing the tradition of early 20th Century transatlantic ocean liners, the interior, finishes and furnishings have a "Modern" influence that references Art Deco style and a touch of classical Disney whimsy. Traditional grand staircases, balcony views, oversized portholes, and a cheerful Caribbean-inspired color palette gives the lobby a welcoming feeling. And because a Disney cruise wouldn't be complete without Mickey Mouse, a bronze Helmsman Mickey statue takes center stage.
Atrium Lobby Chandelier
"Festa Venezia" is composed of more than 500 handmade trumpet-shaped elements. The colorful composition, which seems to float down from the ceiling, evokes a sense of the Art Deco style. To meet the unique requirements of a chandelier onboard a cruise ship, Dale Chihuly and his studio developed an entirely new medium, a combination of glass and acrylic, specifically for "Festa Venezia."
"Be Our Guest" for a very special dining experience. Candlelit tones and sparkling chandeliers illuminate this elegant setting. A panoramic mural from Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" sets the backdrop for an unforgettable evening of exquisite French-continental cuisine.
Continuing the lobby's classic Art Deco-inspired style, the Promenade Lounge features light burled woods, polished chrome and etched glass in a sleek atmosphere. This is the perfect place to meet friends and enjoy a cocktail and the lounge's live jazz trio.
Named for the colorful poles that line the canals of Venice, Palo features a classic Italian experience that centers around the exhibition kitchen. Located at one of the ship's most picturesque locations, Palo offers a sweeping 270-degree ocean view, décor of warm woods, Venetian glass, and gourmet selections from a Northern Italian menu. Reserved just for adults, it's the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or enjoy a romantic evening.
After the sun goes down, Beat Street comes alive with three unique clubs in a nighttime entertainment district created just for adults.
Rockin' Bar "D"
This is the kind of place you might remember from a cross-country trip, when you and a friend stopped in a little honky tonk for a drink and ended up having the time of your lives. That roadhouse feeling is alive and well at Rockin' Bar "D" where you'll find a live rock 'n' roll band that brings down the house every night.
This colorful club features entertainment that is always off beat but not off color. Top comedians make art out of improv with hilarious audience participation that's always unrehearsed. Just about anything goes here . . . as long as it gets a laugh.
Settle into an overstuffed armchair and relax to the soothing sounds of the piano in this jazz club where the mood is always mellow and the music is just right. You'll find all your favorite specialty coffees, plus the finest champagnes, wines, liqueurs and aperitifs. There's even a selection of gourmet caviar. Go for the music and stay for the ambiance.
This nautical-themed family buffet embraces every sailor's dream with a sweeping view of the sea nautical props. A skylight ceiling is covered with ship signal flags.
Carrying the tradition of the Disney Magic's modern classic style, the Disney Wonder's lobby is influenced by the opulence of the Art Nouveau period. It features three-story curly sycamore wood columns with glowing blue glass capitals and wave railings created with statuary bronze and polished nickel. Smaller versions of the grand columns surround the lobby on all levels, bordering the large porthole windows. Its cheerful color palette creates an opulent and welcoming environment. This lobby's centerpiece: a bronze statue of Ariel from Disney's "The Little Mermaid."
Atrium Lobby Chandelier
A second original design by Dale Chihuly, this chandelier features a color palette that complements the ship's Art Nouveau design. Its open, free-formed shape drops from the ceiling along an elaborate metal armature that creates a mystical statement of opulence.
Experience an evening "under the sea" in a regal aqua palace inspired by a scene from Disney's "The Little Mermaid." The curly, flowing architecture borrows from the Art Nouveau period and is illuminated by blown-glass light fixtures designed with underwater motifs. A sandy colored, sea shelled carpet; columns enameled in fish scale patterns with lighted blue cobalt capitals; and a soothing color scheme of royal blues, turquoise and shades of aqua complete the underwater environment.
Carrying the opulence of Disney Wonder's lobby, the Promenade Lounge's relaxed environment features warm, rich tones, wood framed walls, fabric wrapped panels above green leather and fabric banquets. Custom light fixtures of pebbled Venetian glass highlight the lounge. A dark jewel-toned carpet enhances the grand lounge feeling.
Palo aboard the Disney Wonder was designed with colors and patterns to create a playful atmosphere. Swirling mosaic tiles in the bar area are echoed by the design in the carpet. The warmth of the wood and glow of the Venetian glass lend an air of understated sophistication that provides the perfect setting for a romantic evening.
All the fun and excitement of a road trip on "the highway that's the best" comes alive in this incredible nighttime entertainment area. Cruise to three completely different clubs.
Tune-in to the sounds from the '50s through the '90s. Vintage radios and hundreds of classic record albums, 45's and CD's line the walls and set the stage for a dance floor that stays hopping late into the evening. A live band performs music that spans the dial and a house DJ spins records 'till 2 a.m.
Barrel of Laughs
The laughs are on tap at this brew pub/themed comedy club that features a relaxed atmosphere and outrageous entertainment. Cutting-edge improv and side-splitting routines take turns on stage for an outrageous night of laughs.
The Cadillac Lounge
Close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting beneath the stars listening to a radio in a '58 Cadillac DeVille convertible. Open your eyes to find yourself surrounded by imaginative décor at The Cadillac Lounge. The huge fins of a '58 DeVille frame the teak wood dashboard bar. Soothing music and a comfortably sophisticated setting make it a perfect place for romantic memories old and new.
Beach Blanket Buffet
With its larger than life icons, this playful environment creates the fun and carefree spirit of a day at the beach. Beach blankets are laid into the mosaic tile floor. Colorful kites appear to float beneath the sky-blue ceiling and large beach balls decorate the bar.
The Disney Difference
Nearly an entire deck was designed just for kids. Unsurpassed at sea, Disney’s Oceaneer Club features supervised individual and group activities for ages 3-8. Disney’s Oceaneer Lab features high-tech fun, including electronic games played on giant video walls and interactive computer activities for ages 9-12. Teens also have their high-seas independence at Common Grounds, a private coffeehouse just for them.
Exclusive to Disney Cruise Line guests, Castaway Cay, a 1,000-acre Bahamian island paradise, features its own dock (an industry first), lush greenery, natural lagoons and white-sand beaches. Activities are tailored to meet the unique interests of guests. Offerings include swimming, snorkeling, boating, biking and hiking for families and a mile-long, secluded adult beach, where private massage cabanas overlook the sea.
Never before has a cruise line offered three, original Broadway-style Disney musicals. With state-of-the-art sound, lighting, staging and props, Disney raises the curtain on unprecedented shipboard entertainment nightly in its magnificent 975-seat Walt Disney Theatre.
Novel in its approach and whimsical in its execution, the Disney Cruise Line innovative rotation dining concept allows guests to enjoy a different themed dining experience nightly. Accompanied by their familiar wait staff, guests travel from the casual elegance of Lumière’s (Disney Magic) and Triton’s (Disney Wonder) to the relaxed, island-inspired Parrot Cay to Animator’s Palate, where Disney animation springs to life throughout their meal. Guests also may opt to dine at Palo, an exquisite adults-only restaurant, featuring sweeping views from its location atop one of the ship’s highest points.
Adults have more entertainment variety than ever before along Beat Street (Disney Magic) and Route 66 (Disney Wonder). Both ships feature an adults-only nighttime entertainment district, consisting of the first-ever seagoing improv comedy club, a stylish jazz club piano bar and a high-energy dance club.
The 875 staterooms aboard the Disney Magic and the Disney Wonder are 25 percent larger than the industry average and have been designed to offer maximum storage and useable space. Many of the staterooms also feature an industry first -- a bath-and-a-half, featuring separate bath facilities. Plus, 75 percent of all staterooms are outside, and 44 percent of those feature private verandahs.
Located in the forward funnel at the ship’s highest point, the ESPN Skybox not only features multiple screens broadcasting all the latest sports news and events from around the world, it also provides a birds-eye-view of the pool deck.
