Earlier today, Disney Cruise Line shared a new video, hosted by Imagineer Bob Zalk, showcasing the changes coming to Animator’s Palate aboard the reimagined Disney Magic. Overall, the unique design of Animator’s Palate will remain unchanged. Think of it as refurbishment as the venue will be updated with new walls featuring addition Disney characters, all new HD video screens, and sound system. This technical update allow for an all new Drawn to Magic experience where the black and white walls or blank canvas explodes into full color during the course of the dinner (a refresh of the show we all have come to enjoy).
Additionally, Animator’s Palate will emerge from dry dock with the Animation Magic dinner show, which has been an exclusive on the Disney Fantasy. When guests arrive for dinner the night of the Animation Magic show they will be provided with a placemat to draw your own character which will be transformed into an animated character by the end of your dinner.
I am not going to lie, I am really excited about Cariaoca’s, but this refurbishment may be the real gem arriving on the reimagined Disney Magic. I have always enjoyed the design of Animator’s on the classic ships more than the animator’s studio feel on the Dream and Fantasy. Additionally, the Animation Magic show is really a cool and a personal favorite. As a parent, it is even better when you experience your child’s reaction when they see their drawing come to life for the first time.
