A familiar scheme of reds, whites, and blues adorns the newly updated Disney Magic state rooms, which now closely match that of Disney’s bigger and newer ships, the Dream and Fantasy. Split bathrooms, new linens, and an overall sprucing up now provide plenty of comfort in a stay aboard the Magic.
Take a tour through the room that I called home over the last two nights via the video and photos below. It’s a deluxe verandah state room that was a great place for me to crash after two busy days on board.

Fixtures, pillows, and other amenities mirror that of the Dream and Fantasy, so much so that it’s hard to distinguish the rooms from each other. Disney definitely offers the ability to feel at home while sailing.
Not everything is new inside these state rooms, with artwork inherited from the past. But practically everything is in line with the rooms on the Dream and Fantasy, keeping up with today’s standards for accommodations.
Magical Portholes haven’t made their way over to the Magic’s interior state rooms, leaving them still having a feeling of complete containment. But the Verandah rooms on the Magic are open and spacious with ample room to walk around and sit outside.
Not everything was quite perfect yet aboard this initial re-imagined Disney Magic sailing. My state room had an issue with the air conditioning that took half a day to fix. Many fellow passengers told me of their problems, from flooded toilets to broken showers to even a sink coming loose. But on the first day the captain did make an announcement that they were still “sprinkling pixie dust” on the ship following some weather-related delays and it’s likely that all not-quite-done elements will be completed in the very near future.
Overall the new state rooms are pleasant places to relax and unwind for some alone time away from the bustle of the busy decks throughout the rest of the ship. And nothing beats watching an open ocean sunset from a private balcony.
