Last week, Disney Cruise Line began notifying guest booked on the the October 28, 2015 4-Night Bahamian Cruise on Disney Magic – Itinerary A that the itinerary will change. Rather than visiting Key West on Halloween, October 31st, the Disney Magic will return for a second day at Castaway Cay. The change in itinerary appears to be a result of the 2015 Fantasy Fest in Key West.
The revised itinerary for the October 28th sailings is as follows:
4-Night Bahamian Cruise on Disney Magic – Itinerary F
- Castaway Cay
- Castaway Cay
While I am sure most guests would be happy to have second opportunity to enjoy Castaway Cay, there is no mention in the email of any compensation or alternative options for guests hoping to visit Key West.
It should be noted that the original itinerary remains on the DCL website when you are searching for this sailing.
UPDATE: DCL has updated the itinerary to 4-Night Bahamian Cruise on Disney Magic – Itinerary F.
Thanks for the info, we love the Double Dip. We immediately booked this cruise.
October 31 in Key West is the height of their Fantasy Fest event, which features thousands of body painted and nude people on the public streets. This builds up all week, so that by Saturday the event is at its craziest height. Plus.. the fantasy fest event rarely coincides with Halloween, so this should be extra crazy fun.
Its a good thing Disney is doing this, as there were complaints in this year.
Ah Mike, I recall reading about this earlier in the year that representative in Key West had discussions with Disney Cruise Line, or at least alerted them to the fact they would be in port during Fantasy Fest.
The DCL web site now shows this cruise as a “4-Night Bahamian Cruise on Disney Magic – Itinerary F.”
Looks like DCL finally updated their website. Thanks for letting me know.
Hi Scott, you picked the wrong itinerary map. There should be a back and forth to Nassau in between the two CC days instead of the “at sea” loop.
