Today, Disney Cruise Line released a new video featuring the reimagined staterooms aboard the [Disney_Magic]. The video features Imagineer, Joe Lanziserio, and Hotel Operations Manager, Shelly Gold-Witiak discussing the changes guests will have the opportunity to experience this October. While, I updated the massive article on the Disney Magic refurbishment, there were a few new details not specifically mentioned in last month’s announcement that I wanted to share.
The basic design and function of the staterooms will remain. The staterooms will be enhanced with a classic and timeless look with some of the features guests are accustomed to after sailing aboard the Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy. According to Lanziserio, the staterooms will be “brighter, fresher, and have a better sense of function.”
- The beds will be raised to allow for additional luggage storage.
- New customized Disney Cruise Line mattress
- 100% Egyptian cotton Frette linens
- New colors and textures
- 44 new connecting stateroom doors.
After watching the new video, the biggest reveal is the addition of 44 connecting stateroom doors. Following dry dock there are an addition 88 stateroom with connecting doors.
The extra space under the bed is a huge deal. If you are like me, you will love this feature as you can put your clothes in the closet and hide the luggage under the bed making the stateroom more like a home away from home.
What is your favorite enhancement coming to the staterooms aboard the Disney Magic, or is there something missing you would have like to see added?
Beds higher off the floor will be a great improvement. On our recent Wonder cruise, neither my golf clubs nor my wife’s luggage would fit under the bed!
Does this mean the Magic’s bed (similar to the Dream and Fantasy) will no longer separate into two singles, upon request?
Wow! Raising the beds is a key space saver. Also the additional 44 connecting state room doors is key for Parents, Grandparents and all family members/cruisers. Often these state rooms are sold out first, so now Grandparents and other family members will have a much improved state room experience…without the view of luggage 🙂
It will no longer split, from my understanding. I’m thrilled for the more open feel for the rooms.
I’m disapointed they aren’t putting in the magic port holes for the inside state rooms.
Is there any way to find out which rooms are getting a new connecting door?
Not until Disney releases the new deck plan.
Staterooms have been gutted completely- all new furnishings, carpet, bathrooms and tiling, everything has been thrown out to make room for new furnishings.
Thank you for the update!
