Enjoy the magical atmosphere of the Disney Magic

The Disney Magic is a remarkable cruise ship with a completely immersive, magical atmosphere. There is plenty to do for the whole family, so you’ll never get bored — even during your days at sea!

Many frequent Disney Cruise Line sailors and Castaway Club members look forward to sailing aboard the Disney Magic because they can enjoy some fantastic perks, like watching live performances such as “Tangled: The Musical,” eating at spectacular dining locations like Rapunzel’s Royal Table, taking a plunge down the high-speed AquaDunk waterslide, experiencing the incredible fireworks at sea. Aside from the numerous fantastic dining options aboard the ship, adults can even dine at Palo, the Italian-inspired restaurant that overlooks the sea.

Experience the fun of Halloween or Christmas at sea

The Disney Magic sailing from New York City offers a couple of themed cruises during the holiday season. When you book a Disney Cruise sailing from New York for the months of October, November, and December, you can choose to take a Halloween on the High Seas cruise or a Very Merrytime cruise and celebrate two of the most wonderful holidays of the year while onboard the ship. The entire ship gets decked out for Halloween or Christmas, and you can even hang out with your favorite Disney characters in their Halloween costumes or holiday outfits!

These themed cruises aren’t offered on every itinerary, so they’re a great option for Disney fans who want a little extra magic on the Disney Magic sailing from New York.

Sightsee on land before or after your trip

Since you’ll be taking a cruise that leaves from New York City, why not extend your trip? You can add on a few extra days before or after your cruise, see a Disney on Broadway show like “Frozen,” visit the epic Disney Store in Times Square, and experience the magic of the Big Apple! We recommend taking two vacations in one by booking an Adventures by Disney trip along with your Disney Cruise so you can take a guided long-weekend tour of New York City before you board the Disney Magic for a truly memorable experience.
