Over the weekend, Disney Cruise Line removed the itinerary details for the Disney Magic at Sea Staycations leaving just the details on the advanced booking dates. Overnight, the advanced booking details were removed. Now, it simply states bookings begin on April 19th. Additionally, the overall offerings have been truncated to sailings from Liverpool and Southampton with London (Tilbury) and Newcastle no longer mentioned on Disney’s overview page for the limited time UK staycations.
The revised overview reads:

It is unclear what is happening since Disney Cruise Line did not put out a press release or publish details on the Disney Parks Blog last week when the sailing details appeared online. The removal of London (Tilbury) and Newcastle could imply the restart is being pushed, possibly due to pending government approval, as those were the first two homeports when sailings were quietly announced last week for June and early July.
We will continue to monitor this story and provide updates as they become available. I would suggest to check Disney Cruise Line’s website regularly as they continue to refine and share additional details.
