Our Very Merrytime Cruise on the Disney Magic
Happy Wednesday, friends! I hope you all are having a great week so far! We are so close to Christmas and I cannot wait to celebrate my favorite holiday with my family and friends. My family started our celebrating a few weeks early this year as we went on our second Disney Cruise, but our first Very Merrytime cruise! There's going to be a whole collection of posts about out cruise from dining experiences, to our ports of call, to things to do on the ship, but today I want to just do a quick preview of all of that!
We left out of Miami, Florida, and went to Cozumel, Mexico and Disney's private island, Castaway Cay! One of the best things about this cruise was that the whole ship was decorated for Christmas, but the real star was the MASSIVE gingerbread house inside the lobby-atrium. It was just as beautiful as the one at the Grand Floridian at Walt Disney World.
One of the great things about Disney Cruises is that you can see kids as much or as little as you want! If you know me at all, you know I'm not really a kid person, so I love that Disney is super strict about their no kids in the adults only areas. There are three adult only areas on the Disney Magic, one is a pool and bar on deck 9, Palo, the adults only restaurant, and the other is where all of the nightclubs and lounges are.. While there are some awesome adults only areas there are some super cool kids clubs, themed like Toy Story, The Avengers, and Pirates of the Caribbean! Kids use a Magicband just like they would at Walt Disney World to be checked in and checked out of the kids clubs.
Another great part of going on a Disney Cruise is the food. It's literally everywhere! From all you can eat ice cream, room service with Mickey Ice Cream Bars, the breakfast-dinner buffet, snack bars, and main dining rooms, the food on the Disney Magic is great. The best part about the main dining rooms on a Disney cruise is that you will rotate through three different dining rooms, and your service team will rotate with you! You really get to know your service team and they become like a small part of your family by the end of your cruise.
There is so much I can't wait to share with you about our cruise! If there is anything you want to know about, have questions about, or need tips for your next Disney cruise leave me a comment and I'll be sure to get back to you, or maybe even write a whole post about it. Also be sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up with all of my Disney adventures.
Be magical today!
